Oh I’m so glad I have found another True Blood addict on weddingbee! 🙂

No, the intro doesn’t bother me (although I usually do forward through it) but I just had to reply since I looooooooooove the show!

Total addict here too, and read the books.  I hate the opening credits to the show.  I don’t thing it really has anything to do with the show and the song is just annoying.

I guess I’M the wierdo then!!! 🙂 Alan Ball said on one of the audio commentaries that the intro is supposed to explore the relationship between nature, animal nature, and extreme religious ritual in southern culture- to contextualize the show a bit.

@dynamic_duo: Eh, I got tired of the opening so I always forward through it. It’s not the best opening, but the song is catchy. Think they went too far with the animal decary and maggets. Ugn. Gross. But love True Blood season 1 and 3 .. season 2 left a lot to be desired!

I think the opening credits are very appropriate for the show. Life, Death, Sex, Salvation.  But like most shows I watch on DVD/DVR, I just fast forward.  I really don’t need to see it anymore.

It throws me off when shows change up their opening credits, though.  House changed the music a couple of seasons ago.  It just doesn’t seem right.  I identify the original theme music with the show.

I think the best opening credits of any recent show was Battlestart Galactica.  There was always something new for each episode.  The opening credits became part of the show “script”, so to speak.

I LOVE the show toooooo! 

I totally have that song on my ipod 😉

The intro really doesn’t bother me, (except maybe for the dead fox in FF decomp) but I’m more or less just really impatient about it. Like HURRY UP intro, HURRY UP!

Can’t wait until the new season!

I like it, or at least, I like  the song. Heck, I like it so well I hunted it down and put it on my Ipod.  It’s catchy, bluesy, fun…whenever the opening song plays I wind up busting a move all over the living room.

Although…FI asked why I didn’t dance like the girl on TV.  That was a little off-putting.

I can’t help but sing along with the song.  I don’t care for some parts of the intro though.
