'True Blood'

<a href="http://tvlistings.zap2it.com/tv/true-blood/EP01075223">True Blood</a><br>
<i>HBO</i><br>
Premieres: Sunday, Sept. 7<br>
<br>
The consensus around "True Blood" at the TV critics summer press tour went something like this: I'm not quite sure what to make of it, but I definitely want to see more. "Six Feet Under" creator Alan Ball's new series, set in the Louisiana bayou and in a world where synthetic blood allows vampires to live in the open, has atmosphere to spare and an intriguing lead character in telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who's drawn to a 173-year-old vampire (Stephen Moyer) whose thoughts she can't read. The first two episodes don't give a full sense of how everything fits together, but there's enough there to warrant a further look. (We imagine some "Twilight" and mourning "Moonlight" fans might agree.)<br>
