It’s Always Midnight in Texas

I’m a big fan of Charlaine Harris’ Southern Vampire Mysteries, or as it's more famously known HBO’s True Blood. It somehow slipped past me that NBC was giving another of Harris’s books the television treatment in its new show Midnight, Texas.

The show focuses on a small town with an unusual population. Its residents include vampires, witches, hitmen, and other outsiders all looking for a place to call home. When psychic Manfred Bernardo, played by François Arnaud, arrives in Midnight he intends to lay low, but quickly finds himself wrapped up in a mystery involving a murder, biker gangs, and neighbors with secrets.

I’m very interested in finding out where this supernatural drama is going and now have an important decision ahead of me: let it play out on TV or jump into the books?

Midnight, Texas airs Mondays at 10 PM on NBC. That's tonight!
