Hey fans, I have been thinking a lot about this ever I watched "True Blood" a show that is based on Charlene Harris book series of Sookie Stackhouse. The show does in fact have very common things towards Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
From both series do envolve vampires, vampire couples,staking vampires, and other supernatural things. Also Buffy the Vampire Slayer does have vampires with souls but not in True Blood. And True Blood talks about Vampires that are known out in the world. Like everyone knows about vampires that do exist.
Relationships on True Blood
In the show has two things are very close to Buffy the Vampire Slayer's relationship as goes for vampire/human couples.LIKE":
Sookie Stackhouse the main character on True Blood meets her first vampire in Bon Temps, Lousiana. Name Bill Compton a hundred year old vampire. Sookie is telepath who finds something interesting when meeting a vampire like Bill like she can't read there minds.(Similiar to Buffy in Season 3 Earshot Buffy couldn't read Angel's mind from being attack a demon). Also the relationship with Sookie & Bill are similiar to Buffy & Angel like envolves with passion, first love, and dependable. Then also what I read in television reviews that Buffy & Angel's relationship relates to Sookie & Bill's.
Another fact is that last Sunday night on all new episode of True Blood is that Sookie's relationship with Eric Northman a viking vampire, is that there are connections to love. In the show Sookie hates Eric, but he does seem to hate her but has a affection for Sookie. Close to Buffy & Spike's relationship that they both, have, heat, desire, passion, love/hate, and trust.Both chemistries of Buffy's relationship with Spike is completely close to Sookie & Eric.
On the epsiode showed that there was an explosion and Eric was trying to save Sookie from the explosion of Silver chains. Eric was badly wound and Sookie had no choice but save him. After from sucking Eric's blood. Bill came him and saw Sookie sucking Eric's blood. Knowing that vampires do heal fast. Sookie was disgusted from the information that Bill gave her that she will have sexual attractions towards to Eric. Bill was not happy that Sookie is now connected to Eric too.
See what I meant that both shows have similairites that Buffy the Vampire Slayer has on their show.
