“Hitting the Ground”

Well, last night’s True Blood was something wasn’t it?  I wonder how many gallons of fake blood Alan Ball goes thru in an episode? I bet he ups the order with each new show.

So, we bid goodbye to a few characters and learned something new about Miss Stackhouse. There was also an odd Massengill-esque sequence somewhere in the middle of the show that you really have to watch for yourself. I won’t say anymore, since some of you may still have it sitting on your TIVOs, but you can read the entire recap over at Salon here.

Maybe I will say one more thing, Pam is my new favorite vampire. Watch the end of TB and tell me I’m wrong.

I’m a waitress…what the f*** are you?

Sooo…thoughts…questions…comments about last night’s True Blood? Overall, it was just ok for me. I’m happy that Maryann and Eggs are gone and that the town is back to it’s usual Springfield-like self. I had hoped to see more of Queen Sophie, although I am sure that she will be a focus of the show next season. Sookie just grated on me, she was pretty useless when she had that whole glowy hand thing going on the last time she faced Maryann. She was a big wimp in this episode, with a whole lot of crying and yelling “Let meeee go Beeel!”

Newsweek has a few questions after last night’s finale.

E!Online has a few notes after watching the show.

Chicago Tribune talks to Nelsan Ellis(Lafayette) about the finale and what’s next for his character.

A new cast member has been added for next season, Tony winner Dennis O’Hare will be the new King of Mississippi.

Nine long months until Season Three gang! No idea where I will get my cheap thrill from now.

My Three Day Late True Blood rant.

Holy crap! That was some True Blood episode, with the Bloody Heart Pie Eating and wacko Fellowship of the Sun followers, I don’t know what part I loved the best. It was nice to see Nathan Stark back in action and with a southern accent. He was killing me with the cowboy hat and all black ensemble. Since Alan Ball has veered so completely away from Charlaine Harris’ books, it’s going to be interesting to see who survived last Sunday’s ending.

I should really stop watching the show right before bedtime, I woke up at 4:00am arguing with Alan Ball in my head. Why wouldn’t Sookie hear the thoughts of the Fellowship member the minute he walked into Godric’s nest? Why would he even know where Godric’s nest was since Bill himself said a vampire’s most personal secret was where he sleeps. Also, can we wrap up the whole Tara/Eggs/Maryann storyline soon? It started out well, but now seems to be dragging along. I get it, Maryann is evil, everyone has weird sex when Maryann makes their eyes go black. Got it.

Rant complete.

True Blood news.

Not a big suprise…True Blood has been picked up for a third season. Can’t wait to see where Alan Ball takes the series next summer. By the way, what did you think of last Sunday’s episode? I just got caught up on the last two episodes. Wow, alot was going on there with all the having sex in a bed of blood thing and a giant pig running around Bon Temp, and of course the orgy scene. That show gets a little more insane every week…and I love it all.

Also, HBO says it will start selling Tru Blood to the masses starting in December:

“The blood-orange carbonated drink has a slightly tart and lightly sweet flavor that is sure to taste better than the O negative blood consumed by the show’s fictional vampires.

The blood-orange carbonated drink has a slightly tart and lightly sweet flavor that is sure to taste better than the O negative blood consumed by the show’s fictional vampires. The blood orange carbonated drink will taste slightly sweet and slightly tart and retail at $16 for a 4 pack. Pricey. Read more about it here.

Interview with True Blood’s Nelsan Ellis.

lafayette

If you still haven’t watched the season premiere of True Blood, stop reading now. If you have, then here’s an interview with Nelsan Ellis, who plays Lafayette. Lafayette is one of the reasons I am glad Alan Ball is straying from the books. Nelson talks about finding out his character survives:

“When I first started it was only a one-year contract, so I thought I was a goner after the 12th episode. In fact, (Alan) didn’t tell me that he was bringing me back until after the table read for (the season 1 finale). He was like, “You know we’re not killing you, right?” And I was like, “I didn’t know but thanks for telling me.”

He goes on to discuss Lafayette’s relationship with Eric and if he believes he will make it to season 3. Read the rest of the article over at MSNBC.

Was True Blood worth the wait?

So what did you all think of the season premiere of True Blood? I loved it. Just in case you haven’t seen it yet, I won’t reveal any big spoilers, but it’s safe to say I was pleased with the direction Alan Ball is taking. He is straying quite a bit away from the books, but I like where it’s going and it should be a great season.

Minor spoiler alert: Also, how funny was Eric coming down the stairs in a track suit with his hair wrapped in foil for his highlights right before he bites the crap out of that redneck?

SciFi Wire has an interesting interview with Alexander Skarsgard as he discusses developing the character of Eric Northman:

“Season one was an introduction to Eric,” Skarsgard said in an exclusive phone interview last week. “You didn’t see much more than the one side, which is him being the bad-ass vampire leader. In season two we go deeper, and you’ll understand that he is more complex than that and has a sensitive side and a very loyal side. He can be a great friend. He doesn’t like a lot of people, but if he likes you, then he’s extremely loyal. For an actor, it’s something I love to do, to go deeper and play more. I felt that after season one, people were always like, ‘Eric is the evil vampire,’ and I always defended Eric, because I don’t see him as evil at all.”
