While some things never change — after all this time, Sookie is still working as a waitress — other things, including Bill’s hair and Jason’s sexual aversion to the undead, seem unimaginable in 2014.

Click through our gallery of key pilot moments, then drop some comments: What do you miss about True Blood‘s early days — and how do you hope it’ll all end?

Bill Compton’s ridiculous hair invites you in…

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    “Bones” was a perfect song to end the first episode with. Perfectly captures the essence of the show, IMHO.

    Season 1 was the benchmark. That was the best.

    I hope it ends just like it first started. I loved watching Hoyt and Jessica falling back in love. Sooki was so innocent in the beginning, and she met Bill. I hope Bill decides to live. Now that Sam’s gone The pretty red haired lady who has the restaurant( can’t remember her name)will have Sooki and a few others helping her out . It’ll be just like the first TrueBlood. I’ll watch that, and I’ll never want it to end.
