“True Blood” Sucker Punch: Season 3, Ep. 2

Team Talk Blood Radio member,  Mark Blankenship send us his " Sucker Punch" review of TB S3.02 (You can listen live Sunday night's to our radio show  !)

Welcome to Sucker Punch, the only blog post that ranks the gaudiest moments on this week’s episode of True Blood.
(Warning: Spoilers Ahead)

Howdy y’all! I didn’t get around to watching “Beautifully Broken,” this week’s installment of True Blood, until Wednesday night (!), but it was the cap to an excellent day. I signed a lease for a new apartment and made it through every audition round for a popular game show… and then I enjoyed a tasty stew of fangs, fur, and freaks.
But I dig into that, let’s be real for a minute… This season will keep our core characters apart from each other and that makes me nervous. Remember last year, when the “half in Louisiana, half in Texas” stuff made made True Blood feel like two disconnected shows? I don’t want to deal with that again.
That said: This season’s storylines have all been really engaging so far.

For instance, I’m grateful the writers are giving the human characters such interesting things to do. When the humans have human problems—problems that don’t arise from werewolf bites or whatever—then the show becomes much more powerful. To me, at least.
