Watching True Blood Online? Help please!

OK folks I need a little help here.

I've read all the Sookie Stackhouse books and would like to watch True Blood. I'm trying to watch it online, if I like it, I might buy the series. I don't want to fork out the $ for it without seeing it first to see if I like it though.

I've tried watching online in a few places and I'm reluctant to Download an episode to watch and can't find a place that lets me watch free without messing around with a bunch of other stuff. If anyone has some advice or a suggestion I'd be very grateful. Thanks!

Here is the best I can do for you Alix, but let me say that it is one of the best shows on TV right now. If you liked the books then I am sure you will like the show. There are some differences (from what I have heard. I did not read the books), but they are not bad differences.

WOOHOO! YOU ROCK! I was getting sent to all these sites that wanted me to input my cell number, or were not viewable in Canada, blah blah blah. I'm off to watch now. Thanks so much GB.

My pleasure. The only problem though is I don't think you will find season one in there. I love this show though. I hate Sundays because the weekend is over, but I can't wait for Sundays to watch this show

Be aware that anything outside of HBO showing episodes is likely illegal to download for free. I think HBO uses iTunes for buying previous episodes or you can get them on disc.

And there really are a lot of differences.

GB I'm 20 minutes into Episode 1 season 1. I'll hopefully be able to watch all of it.
YAY!

On nice! FYI, I think the show really picked up steam around episode 3 if I remember correctly.

Well I must have done something to the site because now it won't let me access any of the videos. ARGH!

You can't see the episodes here, but go to Hulu and you can watch recaps and clips which might give you an idea if you would want to buy the discs.

I got to see the first 3 episodes at least. I liked Anna Paquin as Sookie. She isn't quite how I pictured her, but good nonetheless.

Thanks for all your help GB. I think I'll go rent the first season and then decide on the rest.
