Last night I curled up with my TiVo and watched this week's episode of True Blood. Set in a tiny town in Louisiana, a vampire and his mindreader girlfriend tried to save her BFF, as she was possessed by the devil, who had taken residence there in the form of a woman. But the task was rather difficult, because the devil had possessed all the residents in town, except for Sam, the shapeshifter who can transform himself from human being to animal in seconds.
And the devil is after him, in particular, because she wants to cut his heart out and sacrifice him.
I, of course, was completely riveted. But when the show was over and I shut off the TV, I did ask myself, "Why in the world don't these people leave that creepy little town?"
You gotta love suspension of disbelief. When it's done right, it's done right.
What crazy alter universe/world/setting are you totally willing to read about or watch even though its existence is completely ridiculous?
