As if that other vampire-riffic phenomenon
couldn't get any bigger, we were peeping the Terapeak Hot DVDs section this morning and noticed a TV series atop the list...
For those keeping score, your crazy-colored vampire eyes don't deceive you: that's HBO's True Blood
laying a whuppin' on the former undead champs. But unlike Twilight
, which has more than its share of detractors
, we've heard almost exclusively good things about the HBO series. Now in its second season, the show stars Oscar-winning actress Anna Paquin as Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic waitress, and chronicles the mystifying events of a small town in Louisiana. Below is a 90-day total sales trend for "True Blood," produced by Terapeak's All Sites package:
We're not actually sure what's produced such a spike -- the DVDs were released several months ago, and the show's second season only just began -- but then we also haven't had a chance to really bite into the television series... (hah!) Maybe if there weren't so many freakin' Twilight
books to finish?
