I loved this show. Couldn't get into the vampire diaries because it was ridiculously mushy. I think this is like a classier PG-13 version of True Blood, but less crazy. True Blood just kept adding too much to it and would throw random sexual scenes and creatures that didn't even fit with the storyline (had once made the comment to my boyfriend that with all that is going on I expect to see Nessie and a unicorn). If you like werewolves, vampires, and witches; I would give it a try. I love the whole Louisiana background. The story line is relatively simple, but had enough going on to keep me wanting more.
