  • I would just have someone watch Bill and Sookie together.  You can see the pure love between them.  And, I love that Bill has a human that is hard to handle.

  • I like season one when jason stackhouse dranked the vamp blood in the back seat of the cop car, then they took him for questioning and he had to go to the bathroom and he was having a hard time in the bathroom. Tara saved his butt that time. right after that she went with him to the hospital. It was so funny the look on his face when the doc pulled out that giant needle to releive him. that was one of the best scenes. from a devoted trueblood fan.

    It would have to be the scene in season 2 on the rooftop with Eric & Godric. It makes me cry every time I watch it. Alex’s performance was phenomenal.

  • Susan

    I have to say… The whole Show when Bill and Lorena where on their killing spear. I loved the whole idea of Bill being bad. When some people see 1 or 2 shows, and they say Bill is too nice, I show them that show, from my tivo, and they become bigger fans. I hope Bill, gets a little badder in the next season. Thank you…

  • Melissa

    I’m a new Truebie!!! Just finished season 1 and working on season 2 before Sunday. I have to pick just one?!?!?!
    So far, I’d have to say, the scene where Sookie thinks Bill is dead from the house fire and goes to his grave to put flowers on it. When she’s walking away, Bill’s hand comes through the ground to grab her and then……

  • Jocelyn Hyers

    Well I must admit I am torn, behind Eric’s making scene & Bill’s making scene .. while Eric’s scene epitomizes what a vampire is, Bill’s scene explains so much about who he really is & why he has such strong protective & loving feelings towards Sookie (due to his pain at the loss of his human family).

    Oh darn, can’t we just combine them both into one? I cannot make up my mind on only one …

  • If i had to choose just one i would choose the one where the maenad is about to have the wedding ceramony amd both eric and bill go to the queen to get advice and sam takes arlens kids to fangtasia. I would choose this because it explains everything like about vampires and shapshifters and sookie and just about every aspect of the show. How crazy it can get and bills love for sookie and erics infatuation with sookie. Just shows sooo much about the show and is funny and intense at the same time. Its a good one

  • Cassi

    well i show people the ending to the second season. with that HUGE cliff hanger but i tell them the bit of the story ahead of time to so they are just like omfg what happend why what huh? just like i was whenever i saw it. after i showed my best friend that scene he ran to my room grabbed my first season box and watched it all day and hes been watching the entire second season. i think i did a good job. i did the same thing with my boyfriend and got the same results :] i mean i prolly shouldnt show them the end of the season but now i got them to help me throw a massive trueblood party 🙂 BYOB (bring your own blood)

  • Dawn

    The scene I would show someone to try and convince them to watch True Blood is the scene when Sookie wakes up to find a naked Sam at the end of her bed. I’d be able to explain that it’s a show about vampires coming out of the coffin, while also showing them there are other creatures as well. It’s the first time Sookies finds out about her best friend Sam and it’s such a comical scene. It’s one of my favourites of the first season.

  • Laura

    The scene I would Choose to convince a friend to Watch Tru Blood would be in the first season when Bill saves Sookie and he asks her “What are you?” and she replyes “I’m a waitress” because its such a memorable moment between them and you just get sucked into it and you want to know … no you have to know what’s going to happen between them so it forces you to stick around for the rest of the season and the ones that follow after that.

  • Sandra

    The first scene of episode one sets the tone for the whole show. When I saw that scene I was hooked and have not missed an episode since. That scene was pure genius, danger, intrigue and magic all rolled into one. I’ve gotten more people hooked on the show with that scene than you can shake a stake at!

  • Charm

    In season 1 the scene where Lafayette comes out over the “AIDS” BURGER, and lets them two hicks have it! He went off. HILARIOUS!!

  • Kimberly

    wow everyone has already named the good ones, The scene that i would have a friend watch in hopes that they would watch more would be the scene where eric has lafayette drink his blood to heal and lafayette bust some moves, haha thats hilarious, also when the fellowship of the sun send luke to bomb the house or apartment and sookie sucks the bullets out of eric’s chest, the tiny teacup humans scene would also be a must considering you actually get to see eric take flight :0)

    I have been really successful at getting people sucked into True Blood over the past 2 seasons. Most recently, I took my sister to the Ultimate Trubie event, where she got to watch the last episode of Season 2. I really love, in the last episode of season 2, the scene where Sookie being forced out of her house by Jason to be Maryann’s “maid of honor” and she sees Sam with Bill. It’s really the culmination of so many different story lines that are brought together by one insane event: Sam and Maryann, the tension between Sam and Bill, Maryann’s intrigue with Sookie and her “gift”, and her power over the townspeople–specifically Tara and her new love, Eggs. The whole scene–from the moment Sookie sees Bill taking Sam as a sacrifice, to the use of her telepathy to read Sam’s thoughts, it’s so intense. I love how quickly things escalate and how one second, Sam is a helpless sacrifice, being nearly gutted by Eggs, and the next second, he’s a massive bull, ripping through to Maryann’s rotten heart. I even love that Maryann had a black heart with black blood! Even after Tara and Jason come over to see what had happened, you hear their commentary: Jason is just like, dumbfounded and Tara can’t believe that she was “seduced” by Maryann. Even Bill, a vampire, shows his true nature at the end of the scene, when he tells Sookie that he wished so badly that she could read HIS thoughts so she wouldn’t be worried about Sam. That one scene has so many characters of True Blood in it, and they are all so perfectly representative of their real nature… It’s the best, most representative scene I could ever think of. Maryann’s got everyone blacked out, Sam shifts, Bill is a vampire with heart, Sookie is…well… Sookie. That scene’s got blood, love, supernatural beings–what more could a person ask for? As much as I would love to hope that my enthusiasm for True Blood is what makes my friends and family want to watch the show so badly, I know it’s primarily because of the amazing work that’s done by everyone on the show. They make the characters seem real, relatable, and at the same time, dangerously supernatural.

  • When I try to convince friends that True Blood is more than just another vampire show, I always make them watch the scene where Godric is on the roof with Eric; where Eric is begging Godric not to “kill” himself. I believe that it exemplifies the sensitivity that other shows don’t have, and the passion between people. Also it shows really hot guys, so they know they won’t be easily disappointed! And I have proudly turned a large number of friends into Trubies! Once you’ve seen a sexy 1,000 year old viking crying, you will never go back to sparkles!

    Every time I try to convince someone I know to watch True Blood I tell them about the beginning of Season 2. The scene is when Lafayette is held captive in the basement and there is still one guy left with him. Eric comes down where they are with a towel on his shoulders and hair half done with foil. He suddenly rips the random guy apart and gets in Lafayette’s face to ask if there is blood in his hair. After Lafayette can finally spit out that he does have blood in his hair, Eric right away explains how Pam is going to be pissed. The reason I pick this scene is because it shows how gruesome and funny this show can be. I tend to win over a lot of friends with that part.
