"Do I look stupid?"
Despite the fact that not too much happened (until the end) I thought this was a great episode. Bill's speech was very moving and the story of how he became a vampire very interesting.
One minor complaint and this has happened every week. During the last scene when something "shocking" happens they always focus on Suki's face too long and she has no reaction. She just finds her beloved Gran dead and she doesn't react.
Not read the book etc. so I don't know the reveal of barkeep and dog but they certainly pointing the finger.
I think this is the best show on TV right now.
I am really sad to see Gran go. WTF?
Also, the rednecks had some sort of press in the church. Garlic? Seemed like a poorly thought-out attack if that's what it was supposed to be.
"redneck" and "well thought-out" don't generally share the same zip code.
However, Bill did appear to react slightly and briefly to the smell.
Fresh squeezed garlic when you're not expecting to smell it? Anyone would react to that smell!
Especially someone with heightened senses. And that was my take on it, annoyance.
What is everyone's take on Lafayette trying to further hook Jason on V? My thought is that his reasons go beyond a dealer trying to hook a user. I think he is trying to keep Jason from Terra. Of course Terra is smart enough to know where Jason is getting it. This time she might be the one with the baseball bat!
Yeah, that was my interpretation too.
The garlic thing was just another example of a bunch of dumb hicks acting on stereotypes. In this universe, garlic has no particular effect on vamps; just like the cross doesn't.
BTW, the next time I'm in a diner and I order a burger, I'm going to be soooo tempted to tell the waitress to "hold the AIDS".
How long have the vamps been out of the coffin in this reality? Wouldn't most of these issues (crosses, garlic, etc) have been sorted out all ready if there is a VRA in the works?
I'm still unclear on the turning. Was Bill turned because he was drained first, even though he mostly appears to be weakened rather than "almost dead"? I am guessing from the position of his sire that the effects of V have always been known. Did Sookie have a response like Jason's? Surely she had much more of Bill's blood than Jason did from that vial.
I'm pretty sure we've known for some time that you won't catch AIDS from a hamburger too.
Looks to me like turning occurs when you die with V in your system or get fully drained. She seemed about to drain him fully.
So am I the only one that would like to try a couple of hits of that blotter "V"?
This is a ridiculous show, but I love it. I don't quite yet know if I love it because it is campy, or it is just Bill's accent, or Terras smart assedness, or Grandma Stackhouse (what the...), or the kick butt Chris Isaak song, but I enjoy the heck out of it.
I absolutely LOVE this show to. And I really love the opening song, is that really Chris Isaak? I've been meaning to look it up and I thought it had a strong Chris Isaak vibe but thought the voice didn't sound quite like him and the words were too close to some of his other songs. It sounded more like someone strongly influenced by Isaak.
Like Buffy Said: "No. In order to be turned the vampire will need to suck all your blood and you'll need to suck their blood and well, it's a whole sucking thing. Usually they'll just kill you."
I don't even think they thought it would hurt him. I think it was more of a taunt.
Vampires are typically portrayed as unable to be near garlic. And specifically in the books from this series they tell the public that they are "allergic" to silver and garlic.
Okay. For those of us without the benefit of the books, so far we've only been told explicity about the silver. He definitely reacted to the garlic, but it appeared to only be annoyance. Of course, it was at quite a distance, so it could have just been foreshadowing for a more significant encounter later.
Maybe he takes Sookie to an Italian restaurant and has a bad reaction.
Very cool. I haven't read the books and didn't know that.
I think the fact that she doesn't react shows how big her reaction really is. She's in shock. This woman raised her and her brother and finds the one person that's really always been there dead.
The song is "Bad Things" by Jace Everett.
Well, don't I feel like a right idiot
Where the heck do I get my info?
