I’m a waitress…what the f*** are you?

True-Blood-Dr-Jays

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.

Vampires in vogue.

eweekly

If you love all things vampire, then you want to pick up this week’s Entertainment Weekly. Inside you’ll find EW’s picks for the 20 greatest vampires, including, of course, that damn sparkly one.  There are also brief interviews with some of the most popular authors of vampire fiction, including Anne Rice and Charlaine Harris.

I thought that Laurell Hamilton, author of the Anita Blake series, came off as a little full of herself in her interview:

EW: What are your thoughts on the Twilight phenomenon?

L.H.: Stephanie Meyer has come and she’s taken the genre that I sort of pioneered.

Really? I’m pretty sure that Anne Rice(The Vampire Chronicles) or L.J. Smith(Vampire Diaries) might take issue with that statement. I won’t even start on how Ms. Hamilton has destroyed what started out as a pretty cool vampire hunter series with her last few books.

Moving on…click here to see a clip from tomorrow’s True Blood. It features that dreamy viking, Eric Northman. Enjoy.

Worth the wait?

Did you catch True Blood lastnight? It definitely made up for making us wait a week for a new episode. The birthday party scene was insane with all the sex and dirt eating and Maryann growing claws. Neato. I’ve found some True Blood links to keep you from doing any actual work at the office today:

The LA Times has a recap of last night’s episode and USA Today thinks True Blood is one of TV’s true joys.

TV Guide talks to Michelle Forbes(Maryann) and asks her about the vibrating during sex thing.

E! Online’s Must List Live debates who is the hotter vampire…Eric or Bill? I say Eric. Discuss.

Find out what music was used in the show at True-Blood.net.

The Strain.

I apologize for being behind in posts. I seem to have brought back a nasty virus from my vacation. Probably caught it at the petri dish of germs they call Walmart. I am officially calling it the Swine Cold. Trademark 2009.

Moving on. Fangoria has an interesting post about a new trilogy of vampire books called, The Strain, written by filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro(Pan’s Labrynth, Hellboy II, Devil’s Backbone) and author Chuck Hogan(Prince of Thieves). It’s set in New York as a vampiric virus takes over the city…and not a sparkling pretty boy vampire in sight. The book hits the shelves on June 2nd in hardcover. Here Guillermo talks about his love of the vampire genre and what inspired him to co-write The Strain:

Told you so.

Time magazine says zombies are the new vampires. Well duh. Who wants those pretty boy vamps, especially ones that sparkle. Apparently it all boils down to a zombie’s relatability:

“Sure, he’s an abomination and a crime against all that is good and holy. But he exemplifies some real American values too. He’s plucky and tenacious — you can cut off his limbs and he’ll keep on coming atcha. And he’s humble. ”
