I was thisclose to being done with “True Blood” after this season, which did not have nearly enough sex and fell too deeply down a weird vampire religion rabbit hole. Not even incestuous sex between Eric and his sister and a far-more-entertaining vampire Tara could hold my interest. But last night’s finale packed a serious punch and maybe compelled me to give the hole show another shot next season. Anyway, be warned, SPOILERS AHEAD! Keep reading »
OMG, finallllllllly. An episode of “True Blood” truly worth watching! I’ll keep the spoilers mellow just incase you missed the episode in favor of watching the Olympics. But in the clip above, Alcide (Joe Manganiello) engages in some super hot sexy sex (BARE ASS ALERT!), tossing the chick on the bed, three-point style, and lunging at her. As Winona would say, “BEEEEEEEEP!” And after the jump, Tara finally behaves like the vampire I’ve been hoping to see, showing a former classmate that she’s not someone to fuck with. Keep reading »
If I had to name just one reason to watch “True Blood,” it would be the show’s notorious steamy sex scenes, which just keep getting steamier! After going topless with co-star Sam Trammell in a hot dream sequence, Stephen Moyer told The Advocate recently that he asked the writers to pen another sexy scene along the same lines.
Specifically, he said he wants his character, Bill, to have a gay sex scene with his adversary Eric, played by Alexander Skarsgard! In fact, Moyer’s been in hot pursuit of the scene for a while, elaborating, “Alex and I would absolutely embrace that. Last year, when Sookie had her fantasy about the two of them with her, we even suggested it.” Whoa, baby! Read more…
I haven’t watched last night’s “True Blood” yet, but I asked Sophie, our marketing manager, to tell me about something interesting that happened on the show but doesn’t actually spoil anything particularly important plot-wise. While she hinted that something kinda shocking at the end, she said the most interesting but not plot-essential development was that Eric attempted to glamour Alcide into not being horny for Sookie anymore. But did it work? You’ll have to watch the first and second clips above to find out! I, for one, hope that nothing stands in the way of us seeing Alcide nekkid in future episodes. That would be a shame.
Has “True Blood” jumped the shark? I would argue that yessss, it totally has and only two things have kept me watching this season: 1) Pam’s increased role on the show and 2) the eventual return of Russell Edgington. The occasional moments of Greek God-like almost nudity (see the clip above, featuring Sookie getting it on with a shirtless Alcide (played by Joe Manganiello) have been worth tuning in for as well, but they are far too sporadic for a show that used to be filled with gratuitously horny sexytimes. Anyway, as promised, Russell Edginton, the former vampire king of Mississippi, came back to liven things up (second clip in player above). Maybe I’m not quite over this show after all…
Alright, it’s official: Pam is officially the most interesting character by far on “True Blood.” Vampire Tara? Still meh. Sookie? Barely even serves a purpose this season so far! Eric and Bill are being wasted with the slow pace of their current storyline. But finding out Pam’s back story — and how she came to be turned into a vampire by Eric — is the only reason to keep watching as far as I’m concerned.
“True Blood””s just-begun Season 5 has its roots in the Republican primaries. No, there weren’t any known vampires running for office—but the policies of Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum were scary enough, says show creator Alan Ball. While watching the primaries, Ball found himself “asking what would it be like to have a theocracy in America—which is way more terrifying than any fictional monster could ever be,” he tells the Wrap.
The most “terrifying” thing about Santorum: “How many people agree with him,” Ball notes. “Our jumping off point was ‘OK, what is a vampire theocracy?’” Read more …
Since the first episode, Tara has been one of my least favorite character on “True Blood.” I just haven’t been able to muster up an ounce of care about her andthe way she says “Sook” is neck-and-neck with the way Sookie says “Bill” (Beyuuuul) as most annoying name pronunciation everrrrr. So when last season ended with Tara dying in a pool of blood, I was pretty okay with her not coming back. But then, in the first episode of the season, Pam changed Tara into the thing she hates most — a vampire. And finally, finally Tara had the potential to be interesting. After last night’s episode, I’m still waiting for that to happen, but I am excited for a relationship to develop between Tara and her maker Pam, who is the awesomest and is finally getting the screen time she deserves. If anyone can teach Tara to be a scene stealer, it’s Pam.
I was ogling a whole mess of photos of “True Blood”‘s Joe Manganiello on the beach, trying to decide which one I was going to post, when I realized, I don’t have to post just one. So here are eight. It was hard to even narrow it down to these. Sometimes my job is very difficult. [Photos: INFDaily] Keep reading »
Last night’s premiere of “True Blood” featured a little nod to another HBO show, “Game of Thrones.” Or that’s what I like to think this scene featuring vampire Eric Northam fucking his sister is supposed to be. Shit ain’t sexy anymore unless there’s a dose of incest, amiright? Warning: the clip above is NSFW, so watch it over and over and over again when no one is around, ‘kay?
