True Blood - 7/15/12 - "Hopeless"

Always good to see Ruby Jean.

Interesting episode. I am enjoying each of the stories. Could have used a lot more Pam, though.

We don't know the woman who seconded for Alcide, do we?

Oooh Hoyt - what a mess. Poor guy!

And wow!! I'd expected to get a lot more from Meloni.
Super sad about that. And rarely without a shirt. What a tragedy.

I can see the annoyance at Terry's story - but if it brings LaLa back to a good place, then it will be worthwhile.

She reminded me of the wolf who went to get Sam when he was suspected of killing the pack leader (I wasn't looking much at her face at the time ). But I'm not interested enough to go back and check.

Well, I guess that didn't go according to plan!

At least, not Roman's plan...

I think the actress playing Salome waaaaay overdid the behaving suspiciously.

It almost makes me think that maybe she's not the mole.

But it's more likely that she's just a weak actress.

It was an OK episode. Show is kind of getting annoying with the substories.

Sam is annoying, the fairy thing is getting a little cheesy, and Terry's story was once cool, but now getting ridiculous.

The whole authority is what is awesome about this show.

I knew Roman was going to die as soon as Russell was sentenced.

How is possible to kill off Russell this quickly? He's a great and major character.

I'm completely bored with The Authority, Lilth, Sanguinistas, blah blah blah. Eric needs to get back to Fangtasia and Pam, and his new granddaughter and Bill needs to get back to Bon Temps and Sookie. Lafayette needs to quickly dispatch the Ifrit and get that storyline over. More Ruby would be good also.

After over ten years being the lead in a hour-long drama (with most of Oz overlapping), I can see the appeal of taking on small gigs for a while...

Plus, this was a role he could really sink his teeth into.

Ba-dum, bump.

Thanks you very much. I'm here all week.

This is how I feel too!

I used to love this show and I still like it. However, they are doing to many other little story lines. The authority scenes feel like a room full of bad actors.

I don't care about Terry's Iraq story line.

I don't care about Lafayette's story line.

The fairy night club is boring.

I liked it when we primarily saw Bon Temps, Merlotte's, and Fangtasia.

Just **** anything else other than the vampire story. Keep it at fairies vs. vampires for all I give a crap.

I just can't stand about the story lines.

I mean at this point, it's Occupy Humans - with all the supernatural **** being the 99%.

It's interesting that people are effectively criticizing them for not doing the same thing year after year.

I suggest that you two put S02 & S03 on a loop and just stick to watching those over and over.

If the writer's followed your own advice, you'd be complaining about the show just being the same each season.

As far as whining about storylines this early in the Season, they need to set things up for the way they will all come together at the end. THEN you can b**** all you want about it.

The Iraq storyline may be different from anything we have seen in past seasons, but that doesn't make it any good. And I already know how it will end. Lafayette, with the help of Jesus, will get rid of the Ifrit.

He pretended to.

I was amused that Sookie was able to de-glamor Alcide. Who was NOT amused!

Sookie is immune to glamoring, however what Bill told her needs to be true for awhile so the authority doesn't get wise that Bill didn't glamor her, his life is at stake.

Bill and Eric have tried to keep Sookie's "fairyness" secret from everyone. They killed Nan to keep the secret. So certainly Bill believes that the authority does not know that Sookie is a fairy. And her "fairyness" is why she cannot be glamored.

Does Sookie know that? Because she seemed awfully scared when Bill moved to "glamour" her, until he shook his head...

Do the writer's know that Sookie and Bill know she that she is immune?

OK - I may be showing my lack of knowledge here but

Isn't True Blood based on something like a comic book or a regular series of True Blood books and therefore aren't all the stories and sub-plots already pre-determined?

Or did I make that up?

I am enjoying the show but admit I am fast forwarding almost completely through the Iraq subplot and the smoke monster stuff.

There is like a 13 book series lol, but my co-worker has told me that the show shies away from it a lot.

The show has strayed very far from the books, mostly for the better IMO.
