Another question might be: Are they pleased or indifferent to the portrayal?
Well of course they do. I watch TV and movies as part of my “keeping it human” regimen.
TV is a good source for pop culture and can be helpful for making conversation. Most of it is mindless rubbish, but occasionally something good comes along.Media portrayals of vampires rarely come close to what vampires are really like, but it’s fun every now and then to see if they get anything right.
None of them offend me greatly, I find them more amusing than anything else. My assistant Rachel is addicted to the show True Blood, even though she knows it’s all bogus. She begs and pleads for me to watch it with her and sometimes I give in. To be honest I think she a has a bit of a crush on the viking vampire. What’s his name… Eric.
In recent times I really enjoyed the show “Dexter”. Serial killer with a code, that was a hoot.
But to be perfectly honest, TV doesn’t real whole that much fascination for me. I would rather be out hunting, listening to music or read a book. Yeah I know, pretty mundane when put like that.
