But there were a lot of strange details in that book that didn't stick. Like how he can't walk through running water, which I always found strange. So always make sure you go to the nearest river when you come across a vampire.
I believe there was also this detail that he couldn't travel unless he was buried in a casket with earth from his homeland.
I still like a good vampire story once in a while, but I was a big fan of Buffy and Angel, and feel those shows pretty much covered al the archetypes and did it well.
All these other vampire stories of the last couple of years just feel derivative of those shows.
Alright, I didn't read through all four pages of this thread but, if you're looking for a GOOD vampire show you guys need to give Tru Blood a try. It's set in modern day times and the vampires have "come out of the closet" thanks to the invention of a synthetic substitute to blood called-you guessed it- Tru Blood and are fighting for equal rights. It's got a kick-ass storyline with excellent characters (none of which are teenagers), each vampire dresses and acts differently depending on when they were turned and what kind of person they were before it happened. If that doesn't sell you, Ana Paquin stars in it and she's got sex scenes that give late night Cinemax a run for their money. This is the first show that both my wife and I have been excited about since Dexter.
It's not your fault, it's mine, because I forgot you are stupid.
I never really liked vampires more of a werewolf kinda guy myself
For good vampire reading, I recommend: The Vampire world trilogy by Brian Lumley.
1. Blood Brothers
2. The Last Aerie
For good vampire eating, I recommend: Count Chocula
