True Blood

I wasn't going to watch True Blood, because vampire TV shows are generally crap, but I saw it was made by HBO, and developed by the team behind Six Feet Under, which I loved, so I gave it a crack the other day. I've only seen one episode, but I think it's going to be good.

Vampires in films and on TV can be used to add a wafer-thin frisson to a load of old cobblers, but I didn't get that impression from the pilot. It seemed to be more interested in imagining a community than in reanimating other Vampire stories.

And I have also started watching Flash Forward, and it has been OK so far, cleverly structured, but I kind of expect it to let me down like Heroes and Lost.

    I see Gove has backed down on climate change and it's back in the curriculum again.
