We're down in the hot, sticky swamplands of Bon Temps, Louisiana with Nuchtchas of The Nutty Bites Podcast to discuss True Blood (2008), the sexy vampire soap that HBO apparently forgot about when they announced they were eliminating late night adult programming from its services. Although it's generously considered a drama, True Blood is actually softcore porn, but with vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, fairies, demons, demigods, leprechauns (are there leprechauns? there's probably leprechauns) plus a smattering of Cajuns who we learn are Mel's cousins. (26:35 - 1:57:51) ... The Pacific (2010) is another prestigious WWII mini-series. On August 7, 1942 U.S. Marines land at Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands to fight the Japanese--minus Tim from Jurassic Park who is stuck at home with a heart murmur, poor kid. It's The Thin Red Line but without the pretentious voiceovers. (1:57:52 - 3:21:28) ... Also, My Dad Wrote a Porno, Lesser Gods, Euphoria, The Time Traveler's Wife, and praise for the non-HBO series Please Like Me.
