“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.

True Blood: “Sucker Punch”. No kidding.

So what did everyone think about lastnight’s True Blood? I was a little disappointed, this episode really felt like a filler. Did Alan Ball step out of the room when they wrote this one? The whole season is only 12 episodes so to have an episode wasted like that is a little irritating. The show should have stayed in Dallas and spent a little more time on the whole Fellowship/Godric storyline.

I will let Mark Blankenship over at The Huffington Post explain all the reasons why last night’s show was a disaster.

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.

Preview of Sunday’s True Blood.

Who’s ready for hell to break loose on True Blood? Hope The Fellowship gets a good beat down. Here are a few links to hold you until Sunday night:

EW has a preview of Sunday’s show. Click here to watch.

Get an early peek at Queen Sophie Ann, played by Evan Rachel Wood. Click here for a larger image.

NY Mag lists their top 5 gripes about True Blood. I happen to think some of those gripes are why I love True Blood. Yes the special effects aren’t top notch, and yes the accents are over done, that’s part of the appeal for me. It’s campy, cheesy, over the top fun and I enjoy every second of it.

Fearnet.com has an interview with Carrie Preston, who plays waitress Arlene, who is very unfortunate in the love department. Did you know she is married to Michael Emerson from Lost?

Now go out and enjoy your weekend.
