Does anyone watch TrueBlood?

Recommended Posts

I hated the Head Spin. So dumb and it just looks weird.

J thought he killed her..LOL I was like, Um didn't you hear her speak at the end? He just didn't want to look at her...hahahhaha

However, I guess they wanted them to have sex in some type of way in order for the series to move on. I was really happy with this episode!

 

The Terry B & Arlene side story is annoying and makes no sense. I think by book 4 Arlene hated sookie, & vampires, so they should have just stuck to that...She annoys me. :) lol

 

Lisa- I can't imagine it will be easy for her parents to watch her in TB at all! Hahaha..

Especially because she is an asshole & will probably do some bad shit this season (Debbie Pelt..lol)

I am still bummed that I can't watch it this week sad.gif They suck! hahahaha

I really liked this episode (minus the nasty head spin)! I wasn't sure after the first show how I was going to like this season but it is getting very good! I loved Alcide in the books so I was definitely excited to see him. And I think that they cast Franklin Mott perfectly. He's a little younger than what I pictured in the books but his look is exactly what I pictured. I agree that the Terry/Arlene side story is annoying and I am still trying to figure out exactly how Jessica fits in to everything. Oh, and I am waiting for more Eric too!!!!

Jessica is just a made up character, I think they kept her around because she's a fan favorite like Lafayette. The whole dealing V sub plot was not in the books. IMPO, those characters kind of update and expand the plot line. The early books feel a little dated, but then again they are 10+ years old!

 

I am really liking that this book is following the book a little more closely so I have some idea of what to expect. Of course with this show that will all change next episode.

 

I wondered who hired Franklin? He's perfect for the role but creepy!

 

I'll be counting down the days until the 11th!

Franklin is totally creepy!

 

Erin the best part about the books is when she talks about fashion.... lol! Can't recall any example, but IMO that's what really dated the book. Soo for writers out there, that's a good thing to remember. Don't include clothes that the characters are wearing as a strong detail.

 

I like Jessica so I'm glad she's still around. I loved how she killed the dude and then lost him.

Yeah, I like Jessica too and Lafayette has been my fave since I started watching, so I like that they switch it up a bit.

 

I actually didn't think that Franklin was a good fit. I'll have to see how I feel when I get to him in my second reading of the books (I'm stuck cuz I'm missing book 2!). Maybe I'll think he's a better fit once I read it again. But I pictured someone else. I don't know his name, but maybe I can find a picture of him...

 

He was on Damages and that's who I pictured for Franklin. Unless I'm getting him confused with who I pictured for the King. I really need to reread so I can get my characters straight.

I also like Jessica...what I was wondering is how they will make her fit into the whole Bill saga. I do like that the show is different from the books...it keeps it even more interesting. I was so upset when Lafayette was killed in the book - he's a great part of the show. The books made me laugh with the fashion...I think even for the time the books were written, the fashion was horrible :) I think that Pam wore like turtleneck sweaters or something like that. Can you picture the Pam on the show in a turtleneck sweater - ha!

I love the guy who plays Franklin! I always think of him from when he was in that movie "Where the Heart is" with Natalie Portman & Ashley Judd (one of my favs) and he was on the Tudors last season....Before he got beheaded of course..LOL

 

I also pictured Franklin older & I pictured the King a little more Feminine...LOL

LOVE True Blood and LOVE Eric! lol

My only complaint, is that I do find the character dynamic a little cliche. I hate to draw comparissons to Buffy - because these shows aren't even on the same level, but Bill being a little whiny and brooding reminds me of how Angel was in the earlier seasons of Buffy. And now Eric - the hot bad boy who's into Sookie, reminds me how Spike was near the end of the Buffy series. Don't get me wrong - I LOVE the show. And I guess cliches and cliches because they work. :P

    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
