What’s Up With The Rough Sex On “Mad Men” And “True Blood”?

Sure, “True Blood” and “Mad Men” don’t have a whole lot in common—”True Blood” is a fast-paced vampire dystopia that manages to be as sexy as it is gory, while “Mad Men” is a hyper-real slow burn about advertising dudes in the 1960s. And yet, these two shows are starting to be linked in my mind because they now air back-to-back on Sunday nights. But maybe these shows have more in common than meets the eye? Last night, there was a sex scene in “Mad Men” that reminded me a whole lot of that freaky Bill Compton moment on “True Blood” a few weeks ago. I’ll explain what I mean after the jump, for folks who haven’t had a chance to watch yet. Keep reading »

Joe Manganiello To Heat Up “True Blood” Full-Time


John DeVore and I agree — this season of “True Blood” is so much better than the last. One reason is the addition of some amazing new characters: Franklin, the creepy but oddly funny vampire with a crush on Tara; Sam Merlotte’s shape-shifting birth family; and, of course, drop-dead gorgeous werewolf Alcide. Alcide is played by the lip-smackingly brawny Joe Manganiello, and we’ve got good news for both fans of the character and the actor. His role has been expanded so that he’s now a series regular. Rejoice!

Manganiello also is featured in an upcoming issue of Muscle & Fitness magazine, which I am sure you have a subscription to, but if not, “Entertainment Tonight” got some behind-the-scenes footage from his photoshoot. He talks about his diet and working out but really, who cares? You could watch this on mute and salivate. [Deadline via JustJared] Keep reading »

Do You Dare Take A Taste Of These “True Blood” Spoilers?

It seems like only a few days ago, I was here moaning about wanting “True Blood” to start and how I was dying for some Eric and Sookie action. Now, we’ve already sucked down four episodes and I am stuck with a bunch of dream sequence teases of my favorite vamp and Sookie getting steamy. A whole lot has happened so far this season, and it doesn’t look like the excitement is about to let up. HBO recently released the episode descriptions for August and they are gushing with goodness, plus a few characters we haven’t met yet. So—SPOILER ALERT!—we’ve snatched up five of the most shocking things that are about to go down in Bon Temps. Keep reading »

The New Way To Say “I Heart You” — With Bite Marks?

Remember in high school when you’d get a hickey and proudly show it off the next day at school? Oh wait, you didn’t do that—you were too busy covering that thing up with a turtleneck even if it was 100 degrees out. Well, let’s just say that today’s teenagers are obviously devolving (remember how they’re getting high off on morning glory seeds?) and are way more into making their personal life public than we were. They’re also obsessed with vampires and vampiric love stories, thanks to “Twilight,” “True Blood,” “The Vampire Diaries,” etc. So it was only a matter of time before giving your makeout partner bite marks became the new hickey. Yep, that’s right. Teens are biting each other—hard—on the arms, neck, and even face to show their affection. According to a CNN intern, “High schoolers say it’s a way to show someone you care about them and that you are chosen—just like in the movies. Bite marks have now even started to be a status symbol.”

So what do you think—are bite marks hot or … ouch? [CNN] Keep reading »

Quotable: Alexander Skarsgard Finds Nudity “Liberating”

“I’m not a prude. I’m from Sweden, and it’s different there. If it makes sense, I’ll do nudity, and it’s made sense every single time I’m naked on the show. And I love to be naked. It’s kind of liberating.”

Alexander Skarsgard on playing the not-nearly-nude-enough vampire Eric on “True Blood.” After a jaw-droppingly hot nude scene in the season premiere, featuring his tight, bare posterior, Eric/Alexander has been disappointingly clothed in the episodes since. Alan Ball, are you listening? The man doesn’t mind being naked. He likes it. The viewers like it too. More please. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Last Night’s “True Blood”: Was The Final Scene Too Violent?

Earlier this month, Entertainment Weekly‘s television know-it-all Michael Ausiello warned us that last night’s episode of “True Blood” contained “the most, ahem, twisted sex scene in television history.” I figured he was being hyperbolic, as we’ve seen some pretty raw sex on the show before. But he was not at all exaggerating. The final scene was definitely one of, if not the most uncomfortable scenes I’ve ever watched. As soon as it ended, I got multiple texts from friends all saying things like, “Nooooooo!” and “True Blood. WTF?” (If you haven’t had a chance to watch yet, stop reading now.) Keep reading »

Shun, Shag, Or Marry: The Men Of “True Blood”

This Sunday night brings us the third episode of THE third season of “True Blood.” And it looks like it’s going to be amazing. Sookie is trying to find Bill, Eric’s trying to get with Sookie, Sam has an angry little brother, Tara has a vampire love interest, werewolves are on the hunt, and Lafayette is … well, awesome. And so, it’s time to Shun, Shag, or Marry the many men of “True Blood.” After the jump, I have conveniently divided them into two camps—the Loves of Sookie and the Loves of Tara.

Ryan Kwanten Is Publishing A Sex Guide

Ryan Kwanten plays Bon Temps’ resident Lothario, Jason Stackhouse, on “True Blood.” But in an instance of life imitating art (or maybe the other way around), Ryan is taking his sex moves from the small screen to print. He’s in the process of finishing a sex guide called The G-Strategy. With a title like that, the book sounds like it’s all about the G-spot or possibly how to get a winning sex game strategy. The guide has already received a stamp of approval from Ryan’s friends, who didn’t know he wrote it when they started adopting his tips. His final draft should go to the publisher in September, and the book is slated for release in 2011. Let’s hope he does a book reading in his Australian accent. [ONTD] Keep reading »
