    Jessica is very hot. On the other hand, she is so white that it hurts my eyes. And sex scenes with the very tanned Jason make her seem like an albino!

    Exactly the kind of actor you'd want to hire to play a vampire.

    I wonder if they have no-tan clauses in their contracts?

    That was good but my favorite was "You can't trade magic like ***ing Pokemon cards!"

    Finally got around to watching the finale.

    My guesses:

    Jesus - Dead
    Nan - Dead
    Tara - Mostly Dead
    Debbie - Dead - This would sync up her storyline with the books.

    The line I liked best was when Jessica's fangs popped out when she was going to kiss Jason good night and she blamed it on low blood sugar....

    LOL!

    I really wish that Alan Bell would reconsider his decision on that character (I read somewhere that he didn't want to use Bubba for 'creative' reasons). There has got to be plenty of impersonators who could pull off the role, and it would add some needed levity to the more somber/heavy episodes.

    I heard somewhere that they couldn't have the Bubba character due to legal reasons with the Presley estate; so they created the Jessica character to fill the gap.

    They could have done it with a wink and a nod.

    You know... leave the whole explanation of how it happened out, and whenever a new character 'in the know' meets him for the first time, either keep the explanation a vague mystery (so that the character, and audience, can never really be sure it is him), or even change his back story to make him an imitator who was so damaged when he was made, that he now thinks that he actually was the real thing (with everyone humoring him out of pity/cruelty/whatever motivation they need for the story).

    Frankly, there is so much comic potential there, I'm surprised they didn't 'go there'. After all, it's not like Bell hasn't changed the canon, from the books, before to suit his own ideas (sometimes for no other apparent reason). Nor has he refrained from at least mentioning that real historical figures are still around as vamps (wasn't it Nan who mentioned that it was Louis Pasteur who at least helped invent True Blood). :rolleyes:

    That's a lot easier to do in a book, where you don't have pesky likeness issues...

    True.

    But I don't think you can trademark a human likeness (though I'm sure there are a lot of lawyers trying to get rich off of doing so), as the current legions of people already making a living off the King's appearance can attest to.


    Oops! :eek:
