Well, the Vampire rights stuff has always been semi-analogous to gay rights (the "GOD HATES FANGS" thing in the opening sequence makes that blatantly clear) and the church in season 2 was pretty clearly a kind of Westboro Baptist Church thing, and the thing about vampire acceptance and PR was pretty major in the last two seasons.
I guess it just doesn't seem that much more pronounced to me personally. Not that it matters, because as I noted earlier the show is playing on my last nerve either way.
I watched the first series... i wasn't enamoured enough to hunt out the second....
I agree with you about the vampire/gay analogy. A lot of the political side of True blood resonates with me as similar to the gay rights battle.
I like the show to an extent. It's a bit soap operaish (like @Fluffywolf said), and I kind of feel that my enjoyment is a bit of a dirty little secret. Like gorging on junk food.
Some of it annoys the hell outa me though. Tara can be annoying. In a, "really? *sigh*" sort of way. Sookie, Bill. Yea I get pretty irritated with them. I hate how he says her name. Sookie. And what sort of name is that anyway?
Normally, once an episode, I have take a small break to rant about it. My INTP is very long suffering.
But I still like it. Even though it makes me want to throw things.

I am a big fan of this tv show. I have watched season one with full episodes. This is awesome tv show according to me.My whole family love this show. My young brother is totally crazy about this tv show.
FINALLY it is starting to get interesting again; especially the new development with bill. I really disliked the " I"M COMING FOR YOU" scene with sooki. Very lame. I wish the fairies would disappear already, why do they have to make everything so cheesy when they're in the picture?
