Um... that just about sums it up, actually.
Well, not quite.
I am a fan of Anna Paquin - well, her works anyway, don't really know her - and so I am getting a kick out of watching here here.
I like the guy they got for Sam too. I always liked him in the books anyway.
I am only a couple of episodes in to the show, but Bill seems rather emo, unlike the books where he was just a little brooding and self-noble.
Lafayette seems spot on and I would have liked for him to have had a bigger part in the books because he is such a fun character.
So, I do not know if the show will start moving along faster once we have gotten to know everyone, but as for right now, it is _really_ dragging.
The pace is not this only think I am having a little trouble with in the show - the sex is a little much - Jason in particular. I mean, in the books he was a serious "horndog" but it was not graphically portrayed, just talked about as a matter of fact. This too, I am hoping will change as the series progresses once, we, the audience, get the point (driven into our eyes (what was seen cannot be unseen - get the brain bleach)) that he is a horndog. I mean, it is less of a deal in the books too, but mainly relevant in the first because of the whole plot thing.
Okay. I suppose that is NOW about it - at least until I watch some more.
