Been watching this with a friend after I told them I had never watched it. For campy entertainment sure, it's fun. There are some witty jokes here and there. My big issue with it is ALL the rape (and yes that includes Jason's) as a plot device and the way it just glosses over it. I also really felt disgusted at the writing regarding Jason's suffering at the hands of crazy werepanthers basically implying he deserved to be raped. That is total crap and pretty offensive to rape survivors. And while I know it's just a show, they could have handled it a lot better or just not used it at all to carry the story.

I really enjoyed the first seasons but it gradually became less and less interesting so by the time it ended, it was really done. Sookie is a very annoying character in my opinion and it wasn't until the very end that I found some love toward her. The vampires on the other hand are so cool, Eric, Pam and LaFayette bring a lot of fun to the story.
