Why was I sucked into Bon Temps, Louisiana and its inhabitants for a week, like a V addiction? And why was this immersion so satisfying?
Perhaps its because Bon Temps and the characters of True Blood are a metaphor for the diversity of life itself and our means of meandering through it. Here's what I see in True Blood.
1. A role model in Sookie Stackhouse - a person who is transparent - her outward actions align with inward intentions. When Sookie sees injustice, she acts regardless of the risk. She knows herself - what she deems right and wrong - and acts in accord with it. Deception is not part of her repertoire unless it's used to save someone she loves.
