“True Blood” Recap: Erik Cries. A Lot.

Yesterday I enjoyed three of the things I missed the most while I was in Costa Rica (to be honest, the list isn’t much longer than that) — my dog Lucca, a big ol’ breakfast burrito from my favorite brunch joint, and “True Blood.” I caught up on last week’s episode first (Annika did a killer recap), which should have been called “Hoytsica & The Never-Ending Hymen.” Jessica is eternally a virgin! How awesomely strange is that?! Last night’s episode was just as thrilling — Hoyt continued to prove that he’s the most evolved man in all of Bon Temps, Mary Ann continued to spread her black-eyed craziness in her hunt for Sam, Jason “Action” Stackhouse kicked Preacher Steve’s ass, and Lafayette proved that gay men in eyeliner aren’t to be f**ked with. Sookie continued to be a pain in the ass (though she had one good line, telling Jason to use his brain instead of “letting it take up space in your skull”), Bill was a little less wimpy than usual, and Erik continued to dominate, tricking Sookie into drinking his blood, resulting in her having sexual fantasies about him.

You wouldn’t expect it, but “True Blood” has become a bit of a tearjerker. When Godric decided that his vampire existence must come to an end and stood in the sun, evaporating into a burning vortex with the help of totally ’80s special effects, I welled up. I didn’t, however, blubber as much as Erik, whose mourning for his maker was positively heartbreaking. It’s a good thing we got to see his naked vampire viking ass in the flesh, because otherwise, he might have lost some manly points for that display. Clip above! Keep reading »

“The Walking Dead” Zombies Coming To Your TV Set

Now that vampires have gotten the stake, give a point to zombies as the hot new underworld phenomenon to fascinate audiences. Our beloved AMC, the network that brings us “Mad Men,” has a new show in the works based on Robert Kirkman’s “The Walking Dead.” The amazing black and white comic has come out monthly since 2003 and was a hot commodity almost immediately, so of course it sparked a bidding war. Good thing AMC won. “Walking Dead” tells the story of a band of survivors trying to find a safe sanctuary in a post-apocalyptic zombie-run world. Frank Darabont, who wrote “The Green Mile” and “The Shawshank Redemption,” is set to write, direct, and executive produce … which proves the network is taking this venture seriously. Senior VP of Original Programming, Joel Silverman says, “I don’t know of another series of books that has such beautiful storytelling, great human emotions and everything that really works on AMC. It allows us to stay where we want to stay: in the world of smart, sophisticated storytelling and apply that to a show that we think the audience would love.” We’re hoping they can bring the sexy back to the undead.
