Buffy > True Blood

I haven’t watched much True Blood, but definitely enough to know it borrows liberally from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. For starters, three of the main characters are pretty much copied:

  • Cute blonde chick with unexplainable charm. Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy is way more kick-ass than Anna Paquin as Sookie. I mean, Buffy can use a crossbow. Sookie screams and her men run to protect her.
  • Broody, hunky brunette vampire as original love interest. Sympathetic towards humans and fiercely protective of cute blonde chick. Ok, I don’t like Angel, but I dislike Bill Compton more….
  • Bad-boy type blonde vampire who hooks up with cute blonde chick after she breaks up with hunky brunette vampire. Spike is definitely my favorite vampire in Buffy. I guess Eric Northman isn’t that bad, but not as wonderfully sassy and peroxide-ed as Spike.
Sorry writers of True Blood, but you are not Joss Whedon. Joss Whedon gave us 7 years of adventures with a sassy little blonde girl who fell in love with a vampire and still managed to save the world. Sookie just set feminism back 20 years and can’t seem to keep her clothes on and her girl parts to herself…

A friend once told me that all I eat is chocolate and cheese. I was both disturbed and amused to realize that he was right.
