True Blood in Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone True Blood cover

I seem to be among a small minority of people who are fans of the show and yet find this cover to be… awkward?  Several people on Facebook have mentioned that the lovely Eric Northman is quite a bit taller than his costars, and so it’s odd to see him at the same height.  And God love her, but Anna P looks a little vacant here to me.

Honestly though, the unsettling quality of the shot is really a decent metaphor for the show in its entirety for me.  I’m interested, I keep looking, but I’m disturbed and keep thinking about not looking anymore.  The show can be shockingly (for me) gruesome and violent, and in general that’s not a quality I’m looking for in my tv entertainment.

That being said, I’m also a sucker (ha!) for a vampire story, good, bad, or otherwise… so I tune in every week, grimace at the gore, try to ignore my inner Puritan during the particularly raunchy sex scenes, and move on with my day.

So I suppose it’s a true guilty pleasure.
