Fellow creatures of the night,

Just a note to say we've partnered with a new forum site, http://un-dead.tv, a brand-spanking new discussion board specific to vampires and television.

It's still in public beta, so they could use some kind folks to join up and give the forum a test.

I know there are a lot of fiends out there who are hooked on television vamps, so why not pop over and gush about your favorite shows?

(I'll be there too...) :)

Have vampires been a socialization tool for the last two generations?

The last two decades have brought about a welcoming of vampires in society. Long gone are the days of children cowering in the dark from fear of the vampire. The 1970’s opened the door to change that not only affected the image of the vampire but how we accepted them into our lives.
