This weekend on TV: "True Blood" is just for true fans of the show
Stephen Moyer stars as vampire Bill Compton in "True Blood."
HBO's vampire series is a bloody mess - literally. True Blood
(Sunday, 10 p.m., HBO) is swimming in faux plasma. And the convoluted plotlines have traveled far from Charlaine Harris' books. As Season 6 begins, Bill is resurrected; Sookie and Jason's fairy grandpa shows up; and vampires and humans are at each other's throats. If you aren't already a fan, you'll be totally lost.Friday on TV ...Dateline
