Any true True Blood fan already knows that the first episode of Season 4 aired Sunday night, June 26, 2011. Not that we were counting down or anything.
 
If you are not already a True Blood fan, well, then shame on you. However, this show is just so good that I’ll forgive you and tell you everything you need to know.
 
The main premise of the show is that Japanese scientists have created a synthetic blood, called “True Blood,” that allows vampires all over the world to forgo human blood and integrate with the rest of human society.
 
However, vampires aren’t the only “different” ones out there. In Bon Temps, Louisiana, Sookie Stackhouse, played by Anna Paquin, can read minds. No big deal. 
 
 
She’s dating a 173-year-old vampire named Bill Compton, and works for Sam Merlotte, a shape-shifter who owns the local diner. They both love Sookie and (barely) tolerate each other.
 
 
Sookie’s brother, Jason, is at times not the brightest, but he’s often shirtless, sometimes single, and has a good heart. He’s also dating a blonde were-panther named Crystal.
 
 
Tara is Sookie’s best friend. Right now she’s dating(ish) Sam. Her cousin Lafayette is an ex-blood dealer and chef at Sam’s diner.
 
 
Eric Northman is the local vampire sheriff with serious yum appeal (swoon) and a thing for Sookie. He and Bill also hate each other (surprise.)
 
 
Eric’s hench(wo)man Pam, has a heart of ice and a bod we’d all kill for.
 
Jessica is a newly-made red-headed vampire with a penchant for trouble, and she’s in love with Hoyt.
 
 
Alcide is the yummiest were-wolf of all time, and he’s also got a thing for Sookie (again, surprise).
 
 
Throw in some bad guys, witches, fairies, and fangs, and you’ve pretty much got the basic plot of the story.
 
Based on the books by Charlaine Harris, this incredibly addicting show is an awesome combination of delicious abs, hot girls, awesome fight scenes, romantic love stories, and plot lines that will curl your blood (literally).
