True Blood: The Complete First Season Vampires have come "out of the coffin" and are now living among us. Surviving on synthetic blood, they no longer need human blood to survive. Or so it seems... The small town of Bon Temps, Louisiana boasts a wide array of colorful locals. Meet Sookie Stackhouse (Academy Award® winner Anna Paquin), a sweet and innocent waitress who hides her powerful ability to read minds; Bill Compton, a 173-year-old vampire who's just moved back to town; Sookie's brother Jason, a ladies' man who can't seem to stay out of trouble; tough-as-nails Tara, Sookie's loyal best friend; Sam, the owner of Merlotte's who tries to keep his feelings for Sookie to himself; Lafayette, a man about town who's always cooking up something illicit and "off the menu" and a quirky cast of characters who each hide their dark secrets in the shadows of night in the series that's like no other.

Did I just over look it, or are we missing the release date?

Ouch!!! For a 12 episode season that's par for the course from HBO. They really need to lower their prices. I'll be saving my money.

I think an $80 MSRP (or about $55 for real) is a good price for an HBO product. Especially when you compare it to The Sopranos: Season Six- Part Two which had 9 episodes for $130 MSRP.

Gents, I am terribly sorry. This press release arrived in a newsletter format and I only copied one side of the page instead of providing the specs. I have added them into the original press release above. My apologies for the inconvenience.
