This show wasn't just about a family but whole town and their interacting lives. The town was only a small country town and all the towns folks lives seem to eventually merge in some way. The protagonist is Sookie a waitress working in a little country bar and eating place.
Her story revolves around her relationships starting with her falling for a much older man, Bill and gradually draws in the lives of others around her, work colleagues, friends, neighbours and future lovers. It involves all the normal everyday things a town drama is known for; personal lives of it's inhabitants, gossip, crime, good times and bad. A very traditional and simple tale of a small town and its inhabitants who just happen to be mainly vampires, fairies, werewolves or other inhabitants of a shape shifting world.
