The best shows on TV last season were True Blood, Boardwalk Empire and Modern Family.
I'm not a teenager, so I don't read teenage vampire books or watch teenage vampire movies. True Blood is not one of those. The show is funny, violent, surprising and the rare television you build an evening around. I love it.
But the fourth-season debut Sunday was puzzling. True Blood started as slowly as most soccer games (I don't include USA-Mexico, which sounded pretty good) and never found its way back.
Alas, the season is long. The Boston Red Sox began the 2011 season terribly and they recovered. Of course, they didn't have to contend with faeries.
I suspect True Blood will rally, too.
For those of you who require a score with your sports blogs, take your pick: 7-1 or 3-2.
