    That's Buffy. On True Blood they turn to goo, not dust. :)

    Right, but "gooed" just doesn't work.

    I hereby declare "dusted" to be a cultural norm for "reducing a vampire to a uniform, non-viable substance." So let it be written, so it shall be done.

    :D

    I've never seen or even heard of "dusted" before this thread, so I reject your proclamation.

    But you're old, weak, and pathetic, so you don't count and I can safely reject your rejection.

    I think "burst" is a good word for what happens. "Gooed" is not so good, since although they do turn to goo, they also burst apart rather explosively with the goo flying in multiple directions, and just saying "gooed" does not adequately portray the burst of gore that goes flying around.

    How about "Water Ballooned"?

    BTW: Realy funny seeing Lafayette's religious figures coming to life and then screaming when he started stamping on them,lol

    So, I liked the episode but it's kind of moving slow.

    1) I love Terry's story with Ifrit, many people hate it but I definitely love it.
    2) KILL RUSSELL! Thank heavens they actually found him. I thought it was going to take another 20 episodes for that to happen.

    The authority is the only thing I'm really interested in at this point.

    Does any one besides me feel like this show could do away with all the supernatural bull?

    VAMPIRES VAMPIRES VAMPIRES! would just be more than enough, and that's the best focus at this point.


    Among the shapeshifters, ghosts, werewolves, and fairies, it's getting a little bit annoying

    Its going to end up like "No Ordinary Family" where like 3 people are actually human without powers.

    That's almost what it seems like, which kind of annoys me.

    I do, but the whole werewolves and fairies thing are what's bothering me to be honest.

    Shapeshifters? Sure fine, but not too many supernatural things at once.

    They're overloading it with a bunch of subplots and crap.

    I was just listening to a podcast discussion on this point the other day, where the point was made that in shows like Game of Thrones magic seems more special and powerful and surprising and compelling, because it is more rare. When everyone is special, nobody is. I grew to have a similar gripe with The Vampire Diaries -- everyone and their uncle is involved somehow with the supernatural (vampires, werewolves, witches, ghosts, etc). There's like one token normal character left.

    Isn't that also what happened in "Heroes"? I gave up on Heroes part way into S02.
