True Blood • S1 E1-4

Welcome to the inaugural episode of Superhero Ethics After Dark—strictly for listeners 18 and over, please.

Join Ashley and me as we sink our teeth into True Blood, the HBO series where vampires make their public debut in rural Louisiana. We’re starting off with a discussion on Season 1, Episodes 1-4, analyzing the ethical quandaries of vampire existence. Is Sookie’s approach to vampires compassionate or naïve? How does the show serve as a metaphor for real-world issues? And will Ashley be able to focus on anything other than her intense attraction to Eric Northman (ER)?

Superhero Ethics After Dark is our new series where we examine shows that candidly address topics like sexuality—content that requires an 18+ rating. We’re bringing the same ethical lens and format you’ve come to expect, but we’ll be delving deeper into various issues raised by the show, including its treatment of sexuality and, of course, our unabashed enthusiasm for the characters.

Riki Hayashi and Matthew Fox explore the ethical questions from the stories geeks love—superheroes, sci-fi, anime, fantasy, video games, and so much more.
