Thanks to the very wonderful Kristie, this will help you pass the time till Sunday night !
Meredith out does herself with Ep 9 review and a little shout out to us-she was great on TalkBlood last week and gave us a little preview of some of her famous "Pros and Con"
After last week's explosion of excitement, how could True Blood's vampires top the insanity? Simple: with Quantum Leap special effects and big, fat bloody tears. This was the episode where everybody cried themselves silly, because being a vampire is hard.
Last week's True Blood left the viewers with a big splodey cliffhanger. The Fellowship of the Sun's soldier, who loved Jason a little bit more than a bunk mate should, popped into the "Godric and his pajamas are awesome" party to spoil the mood completely, with a giant silver chest bomb. And then everybody cried: Eric cried, Sookie cried, Jason cried, Bill didn't cry because it would ruin his powdery makeup, and I cried...then I cried some more out of shame, and went on the roof and screamed "Gooooooodriiiiiiiiiiiic," into the new morning sun.
Now that enough time has come and gone I think we're all ready to let the healing begin with this week's Pros and Cons of True Blood:
Pro: Before all the death and destruction, Bill manages to slip in this little gem, "You may be immortal Lorena, but you are dead to me." Come on, even if you were the blood-tear-faced Lorena, I couldn't get through this conversation without stopping and saying, "wait, what excuse me did you just make a silly play on words while breaking up with me eternally?" Pro for being one of the reasons I love this show.
Pro: Then the great big bomb goes off, and it gets a pro for not being a stupid vision or premonition or something of that nature.
Pro: Pro to Sookie being worried about her brother, and pro to Jason for his "thumbs up" response.
Pro: Bill not killing the Fellowship of The Sun's kid. But Con for everyone thinking that Godric was the first vampire to show patience and understanding while being incredibly tired of the antics of his people. Mopey Bill has been doing this forever. He's cornered the Southern market on "self righteous/self hating vampires just trying to do the right thing." He's just been busy cleaning up after all of Sookie's messes, and trying to keep her out of trouble. Sure Bill doesn't really want to be here, and he's tried countless times to pull Sookie out of the whole Dallas mess because it's "not their problem". But this is the moment when we see Bill involved, and it's bad ass. And that's really the only difference between these two: Godric is trying, and clearly failing, to make a difference and Bill is still finding his voice and spine. Don't forget he willingly led a "meet the local vampire" talk at Gram's church.
Listen to Meredith on 'Talk Blood' here
Resident Evil ???
Sookie, Bill and Jason return to a Bon Temps turned upside down by Maryann. Lured to Merlotte’s by Arlene, Sam and Andy find cold comfort in their refuge from a group of bloodthirsty revelers. Bill discovers that traditional vampire techniques don’t work on Maryann; Hoyt and Jessica try to keep a lid on Maxine’s madness; and Sookie tries to push through the darkness consuming Tara. With all hell breaking loose, Jason takes the bull by the horns to rescue Sam, at least for the moment.
New World in My View will air tomorrow, August 23rd on HBO, and is directed by Adam Davidson and written by Kate Barnow and Elisabeth R. Finch
From MyLifeComics blog, this is based on watching S1 dvds.
I did a good number of things on my to-do list tonight so I treated myself to drawing a cartoon, which in reality is nothing more than a pie chart about True Blood:
I’m also going to take Kelly’s advice and use this post to its advantage to mention Anna Paquin’s boobs and get a ton of hits. So yeah…Anna Paquin…and her boobs. She’s got two of…’em? Am I right, fellas? Anyways, I’ve finished the first season and can officially say that I like the show. It’s gritty, it’s filthy, it’s my sort of v-story. Can’t wait to watch some more…
