Sorry about the rewrite but the spoilers just showed up in the first lines no matter what I did.
Here's hoping anyone who is thinking about watching the show didn't read it.
Now, to my comments ....
I like the show. However, when you receive a giant, very old coffin, filled with dirt, in a cargo hold, and no one, NO ONE says, "Hey, you know that seems like a thing to hold a vamp ... ARGH! HELP! IT'S DRINKING MY BLOOD!!, I start thinking bad thoughts.
For one, does no one read literature anymore?????? In good literature, they DO NOT SPARKLE!!!
People! Giant coffin. Slit throats! Think!! Think!!!
It's almost too much.
