True Blood or the Sookie Novels: Which Is Better?

This is really pretty good


Recently HBO launched the fourth season of the vampire series True Blood. In May, author Charlaine Harris published the 11th book in the Sookie Stackhouse series of novels on which the TV series is based, Dead Reckoning. Fans love to debate which is better, the television series or the books. Here’s my take.

Plotting: The books are richly plotted, with reversals and high-drama situations every few pages. The television series, however, has successfully added layers of complications and twists that make them even tighter and more entertaining. One example that comes to mind is Jason Stackhouse’s involvement with the Fellowship of the Sun Church in the second season, which made this plotline more satisfying. Point to True Blood.

‘True Blood’ spoilers! Episode 6 : ‘I’m not the vampire that you think I am.’

It’s a full moon in Bon Temps on HBO’s “True Blood” (tonight at 9), and that means, naturally, that everyone has an excuse to wander the woods.


You’d think they’d know better by now.

Just about everyone gets possessed, either by vengeful spirits or pure-old fashioned desire.

Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) are in the throes of passion when Bill (Stephen Moyer) bursts in and ruins the moment. A humbled Eric bows to his king.

Sookie questions Bill’s motives. “Believe it or not, my entire existence does not revolve between what or who is between your legs,” he says.

Youch. Don’t see these two getting back together any time soon, and truth be told, I like the show more when they’re apart.

Sookie pleads for Eric’s life. “If you ever loved me, you won’t hurt him.”

But Bill twists Eric’s condition and wins approval to punish him with “the true death.”

Elsewhere, Jason (Ryan Kwanten) fears he will turn into a werepanther. That question is answered perfectly tonight, and as a bonus, a new love triangle is born.

Tommy (Marshall Allman) learns a new trick and finds a new way to wreck brother Sam’s (Sam Trammell) life. Trammell is outstanding in his work tonight, but I don’t want to give too many hints here.

Arlene (Carrie Preston) and her family escape that bedroom inferno, and we get our first sense of what is going on with her baby. Devil child - or something else?

Both Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) and Marnie (Fiona Shaw) find themselves used as vessels for powerful supernatural creatures - who might not have their best interests at heart.

And in a departure for the series, the night does not end on a true cliffhanger, but a moment of passion finally admitted, honored and shared. Fangbangers will love this one.

Charlaine Harris says Sookie bk #12 is finished and at the printers the title is " Deadlocked" May 2012

Wow ....aren't we excited? - get ready book will be out the first week of May 2012!

2 Charlaine Sookieverse original stories come out this month ...a short story in Home Improvement and novella in Sookie companion!

Post in comments what you think the " deadlock " is referring to ???

True Blood Recipe of the week: Burgers Lafayette recipe from Charlaine Harris

I thought this was a great recipe for this week  - this is really a recipe from Charlaine Harris .

Sauce for Burgers Lafayette 
1/4 c vinegar
1/2 c water
1/2 t salt
a dash of cayenne
1  medium onion, chopped
2 T Worcestershire sauce
2 T brown sugar
1 T  prepared mustard
1/2 t pepper
1/2 c ketchup
2 T margarine
l  lemon, sliced extra thin (optional) 
Saute the onion (and lemon, if you choose to use it) in the margarine. Then  add all the other ingredients. Simmer about 20 minutes. Then place the broiled  hamburgers (or leftover roast slices) in the skillet and steep them in the sauce  over very low heat for a few minutes. Serve with extra sauce spooned on top when  you're ready. 
Charlaine Harris


From Book 8 From Dead to Worse

I stuck my head through the hatch to wave at the kitchen staff. The current cook at Merlotte’s was an ex-army guy named Carson. Short-order cooks come and go. Carson was one of the better ones. He’d mastered burgers Lafayette right away (hamburgers steeped in a former cook’s special sauce), and he got the chicken strips and fries done exactly right, and he didn’t have tantrums or try to stab the busboy

It isn't burgers Lafayette like in the books, but whe we mention burgers and Lafayette we just have to watch the brilliant 'Aids burger' scene from True Blood Season1.

Alan Ball signs True Blood contract but.........



I just thought this was interesting to note ...

UPDATE: I've leaned that Alan Ball's new deal with HBO is actually multi-year. But under it, he has committed to be a full-time executive producer/showrunner on True Blood for only one more season. He is expected to reevaluate his future on the show at the end of Season 5, when he may take a backseat on True Blood while focusing on developing new projects for HBO or decide to continue full-time.

‘True Blood’: What’s up with the creepy baby?

Vampires, faeries, shifters, werewolves and witches all populate Bon Temps this season on “True Blood.” But the character that’s freaking us out the most? The creepy baby terrorizing momma Arlene (Carrie Preston) and daddy-through-marriage, Terry (Todd Lowe).
Creator Alan Ball admits it’s “great to take a really angelic baby and put scary music” in the scene. Indeed. When speaking to journalists gathered at the Television Critics Press tour on Thursday, Ball explained that the little hellion became a plot point because “once we made the decision in the writers’ room to jump ahead in time, we knew that the baby would be here.”

Stockton students see their 'True Blood' essays turned into a book

Love this idea - !

Fangs, shape shifters and immortals, oh my. HBO's popular vampire saga "True Blood" is in its fourth season, and it has at least a small group of philosophy students watching with more than casual interest.
These local fans of the goings on between vampires and mortals in the quagmire that is Bon Temps, La., have taken their love of the show to another level - publishing a book of their musings on the themes dealt with in "True Blood" and how they relate to larger, real-life questions.

Why Don Draper Is a Far Better Vampire Than Any of Twilight’s or True Blood’s

** I posted this too so you guy could read the original post ..the comments are the best . My fav:

"a young female protagonist, and a vampire love interest who does not even try to eat her." Have you actually seen True Blood? 

 Guest blogger and screenwriter Brian McGreevy is upset about the post-Twilight emasculation of vampires and is currently professionally working to re-masculate them: He is adapting Bram Stoker's Dracula for Warner Bros. and Leonardo DiCaprio. Additionally, his vampire-themed novel Hemlock Grove is coming out in winter 2012 from Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, and he is working on the film adaptation with director Eli Roth.

The old-fashioned, iconic vampire is in many ways the ideal man. Let's call him the Romantic vampire, famously modeled on Lord Byron and best associated with Bram Stoker’s Dracula later in the century. (As opposed to the traditional vampire from Slavic folklore, a dumb and socially ungraceful specimen of peasant stock that more closely resembles the present-day zombie and whose origins could be found in plague anxiety and an impressive misgrasp of forensic science.) The Romantic vampire is a real customer, with looks, charm, style, wealth, and insatiable demonic appetite. Imagine the first bite of a perfectly seared piece of meat — to him you are that meat. Eros and Thanatos join forces in this vampire; no one else can make a woman feel this wanted or alive (for the moment).

The emasculation of the modern vampire?

Would Don Draper really be a better vampire than the men of "True Blood" and "Twilight"? Madness

Screenwriter Brian McGreevy did a guest stint on Vulture today with a diatribe on the emasculation of vampires in modern media, specifically in "True Blood" and "Twilight." "True Blood," at least, began with McGreevy's ideal sexy/dangerous vampire -- if not in Bill Compton, than in Eric Northman. Of course, now that Eric has lost his memory and Bill is playing at being a prissy little king, it's totally reasonable for McGreevy to assert that these characters "have taken the Romantic vampire and cut off his balls, leaving a pallid emo pansy with the gaseous pretentiousness of a perfume commercial. We are now left with the Castrati vampire."
Unfortunately, this argument smacks of chauvinism. McGreevy (currently adapting Bram Stoker's "Dracula" for the big screen) blames this on a new, dangerous "female gaze" -- as opposed to the misogynistic "male gaze" as defined by feminist film theorist Laura Mulvey in her essay "Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema." The female gaze, he suggests, makes these non-threatening vampires "pornography for tweens." When he asserts that "Mad Men's" Don Draper is actually more of a vampire than any of the "True Blood" or "Twilight" characters, what he's saying is that Draper is more of a man.

'True Blood' executive producer Alan Ball plays it by the book except when he doesn't

alanball.jpgThe startling story twists in HBO's "True Blood" -- Witches now? Really? -- actually aren't writers-room whimsy.


Far from it. Creator Alan Ball and his staff have Charlaine Harris' novels as their guide, and most fans of those are fans of the show, so the adaptation challenge must be working.
Now in its fourth season, the Louisiana-set drama is its network's blockbuster and shows no signs of slipping, either creatively or commercially.

'True Blood' stars keep fights all in the TV family

As a happily married couple, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer can sink their teeth into on-screen breakup

Anna Paquin has been put through her paces as plucky waitress Sookie Stackhouse on HBO’s “True Blood,” but she hasn’t been thrown a challenge from Creator/Executive Producer Alan Ball that she couldn’t handle. “I’m having the best time of my life. Are you kidding me?” Anna laughed at HBO’s “True Blood” panel at the Television Critics Association Summer 2011 Session in Beverly Hills on Thursday, when asked about all the drama Sookie’s gone through. “I dare him to come up with something I say no to.”


In the current season, Anna’s Sookie has been getting closer to Alexander Skarsgard’s Eric, but whether she’ll forgive Stephen Moyer’s Bill Compton, her first true love, whose betrayal was revealed in the Season 3 finale, is a question the actress avoided answering.
“Do you think I’m gonna tell you that with my boss sitting here?” Anna laughed.

True Blood Season 5 to be based on 'Dead as a Doornail' by Charlaine Harris, it's time to get reading!


OK --Alan Ball says he's working on Season 5 right now and that it's based on Sookie Stackhouse Book #5. So it is time to get reading or re- reading this novel. You can see this year's storyline setting up next year.


I have one word for you : QUINN
How about leg licking
How about Sookie and Sam kissing !

Sookie Stackhouse just can't seem to stay away from the supernatural denizens of Bon Temps, Louisiana. In Dead to the World (2004), she found herself embroiled in vampire politics; this time around, she's involved in the machinations of the Were-people, whose pack leader has just passed away. -Alcide Herveaux asks her to accompany him to the funeral, where Alcide's father declares his candidacy against a slimy, calculating rival. Angry at being drawn into the conflict, Sookie can't distance herself entirely, because a sniper has been taking shots at Were-people, and the community suspects Sookie's brother, Jason, a new shape-shifter. Sookie's love life is every bit as complicated as usual, and her collection of would-be beaux continues to grow. Also, someone wants her dead, which she learns when an assailant sets fire to her beloved house. Harris' southern vampire series remains one of the best of the breed, concocted out of just the right mixture of humor, intrigue, and excitement. Its latest entry does not disappoint.
Here is what I have on the book HERE

Here some bits from an Amazon Review:
Sam's has a new cook - seems to happen almost every volume. Tara has a new boyfriend - also seems to happen regularly. But then the shooting starts:
*Calvin Norris gets shot, seriously injured.
*Sam gets shot, in the leg.
*Sookie gets shot, a shoulder graze.
*Dawson, a Were bodyguard, gets shot, seriously injured.

And then, in terms of who's who vis a vis Sookie:
*Calvin Norris is still interested in Sookie, and in fact they do get in a serious kiss, which surprises Sookie.
*Claudine kisses Sookie a couple times, though, since she's Sookie's fairy godmother, what that might mean is ambiguous. Claudine certainly plays up a hint to others that it might be serious, when such a suggestion is useful.
*Charles Twining, the new bartender at Fangtasia, is intensely interested in Sookie, although respectful.
*Eric is still interested in Sookie, though he's not sure why, and he wants to find out what went on, and he does kiss Sookie again in this book.
*Even good ol' Vampire Bill gets in a few licks, including sharing (innocently, this time) Sookie's hospital bed.
*Alcide Herveax, the Were, attempts to continue his courtship of Sookie, sort of, escorting her to the sort of thing where other people will assume one's intentions are serious. (If you recall, they were once engaged for 10 minutes.)
*And the one we've been waiting for - Sam kisses Sookie, and it might have gone further... yes, admit it, you've been expecting Sookie to finally realize that Sam more than just admires her as a barmaid for several volumes now!!

Perhaps the biggest surprise for me what the sudden intersection with one of Harris's other series, a straightforward mystery series which has heretofore had no hints of fantasy. Lily Bard, who lives in Shakespeare, Arkansas, has been the heroine of such books as "Shakespeare's Christmas" and "Shakespeare's Trollop" and in this book she pops up, having finally married Jack Leeds (isn't that a great name for a PI? Leeds?) as they are investigating Debbie Pelt's disappearance. It's odd seeing Lily referred to as Lily Leeds, after years of seeing her as Lily Bard. Anyway, for those who have only been reading Harris's vampire books, now you are informed that those two characters, who pop up for a couple of chapters here, are actually a whole 'nother series, one I recommend to those who read non-fantasy as well as fantasy.

Other fun bits to watch for - how Greg Aubert's insurance customers stay so lucky; Andy Bellefleur and Sookie finally air some things out; Quinn, who doesn't exactly... kiss... Sookie, and what kind of shifter he turns out to be.

Spoilers from Alan : True Blood Lightning Round: Alan Ball on Bill-Sookie-Eric Triangle, Season 4 Finale

What will we see in the war between witches and vampires?
Ball:
It will go places that surprise you. It's not linear.
What can you say of the Bill-Sookie-Eric triangle?
Ball:
It's complicated.
Will Sookie (Anna Paquin) be able to forgive Bill (Stephen Moyer)?
Ball:
I believe forgiveness is possible for everybody for everything, but I'm a Buddist, so...
Were you careful with the relationship between Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Sookie because of Team Bill?
Ball:
I don't worry about Team Bill or Team Eric. I love [the fourth book] because I thought it was a great story, but I'm Team Sookie.
Because Jason (Ryan Kwanten) drank Jessica's (Deborah Ann Woll) blood, will his sex dreams continue?
Ball:
He's had her blood and he's already a very sexual person, but he's going to be attracted to her.
What is the season building up to?
Ball:
The fate of vampires as a whole.
What's the big, bad villain for next season?
Ball:
We are just in the beginning of Season 5, so it's too early to say, but we're basing it on the books.
Do you feel pressure to top each villain?
Ball:
I don't think that way because that's only a recipe for trouble. I love my job, I enjoy doing it. I'm not going to put pressure on myself to top. I just want to tell the best story and the most fun story.
Why did the show really jump one year in the future this year?
Ball:
The root of that was how we get Jason to be a cop.

True Blood' On Verge Of 5th Season- Alan Ball Signs New Deal

Big news at the opening of the True Blood panel at TCA- series creator/executive producer Alan Ball said he has just closed a deal to do another season of the HBO series, effectively sealing the 5th season renewal of the hit vampire drama. Ball disclosed the fact that he has re-signed in response to a request to address speculation that Season 4 could be his last. "I have no desire to leave," he said. "Doing the show is more fun than anything else I've ever done." He later said that he and the show's writers are already breaking stories for Season 5 and one of them is to "see how one of the vampires was made."

Watch McAllen actor J.d. Mata on HBO's 'True Blood' Sunday, July 31

Nothing Ol' Dallas likes better than local paper  " hometown boy/girl makes good"  articles about True Blood actors UNLESS it's an article about a TEXAS actor !! Go McAllen!


When J.d. Mata stepped into the audition room at HBO studios in Hollywood, the McAllen native was careful not to break character. The producers were in search of the perfect brujo – a medicine man who was solemn and mysterious, and Mata was determined to become him.

“(My agent) said ‘Be the character, do not be J.D.,’” Mata said.

The University of Texas-Pan American graduate followed his agent’s advice, and before he knew it, he was scheduled to star in one of the network’s highest-rated shows. This Sunday, July 31, at 9 p.m. Mata will appear as “Tio Luca” on the HBO drama “True Blood.”

Sam Trammell on True Blood’s Emmy Shutout, His Pal Peter Dinklage, and Running Into Ozzy Osbourne

Unlike his True Blood character, Sam Trammell can wax philosophical on both astrophysics and the band Rush alike. Not impressed? He can also discuss all of the above in French, enfoiré. But these days, the actor (a.k.a. diner owner/shape-shifter/nice-guy-with-a-past Sam Merlotte) is more preoccupied with genetics: as in his still-gestating twin sons with actress-girlfriend Missy Yager. Vulture interrupted Trammell, who's busy nesting at home in L.A., to talk to him about his True Blood plotline, his castmates' drinking habits, his days partying with Peter Dinklage, and what to do if a serial killer cocoons you in Saran Wrap.

Stephem Moyer dishes little known “True Blood”-related trivia and secrets behind Punk Bill

By now, most fans of “True Blood” know a few details regarding the personal lives of the show’s stars – like how Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer are married. But the show is actually filled with dozens of more quiet references to the stars, details Access Hollywood uncovered at Comic-Con.

For starters, in Episode 2, which aired on the HBO drama just a few weeks ago, the scene that sees Stephen’s character, Bill, in a flashback in time, set in London in the early 1980s, was inspired by the Essex-bred star’s own life.

“That was fun,” Stephen grinned, when Access asked about the moment, penned by longtime “True Blood” writer Brian Buckner.

The episode featured Stephen, with spiky, Sid Vicious style hair, and a leather jacket, hanging out with punk rockers.

“I had a sort of a punk leaning. I was more of a mod,” Stephen explained. “Actually, 1982, I was into The Jam. I was bit young for The Jam, but I just followed them obsessively. But it was really great. And I live very near Camden when I’m in London and that’s set in Camden.”

Teen Choice Releases Inaugural ‘Vampire Award’ Shortlist

Yes, you’re reading that right, Teen Choice ’11 actually has a category for ‘Choice Vampire’, thus proving themselves to be far more progressive than the, frankly intolerant Academy Awards will ever be. It’s about time vampires received recognition for their acting prowess and it’s a bold move by Teen Choice (now in its 13th year) to include these supernatural beings in their award categories.
A spokesperson for Teen Choice has today issued a statement in which they lampooned the other award ceremonies, calling them “bigoted” and adding that “their [other award ceremonies] refusal to recognise the thespian talents of other-worldly actors actresses is now bordering on the ridiculous, we [Teen Choice] have decided to lead by example, and from now on will be including at least one category for best supernatural being every year.”

Of course that didn’t happen, it would be ridiculous. However, Teen Choice has actually announced the nominees for “Choice Vampire” (it does indeed exist), which are as follows:
Nina Dobrev – The Vampire Diaries
Robert Pattinson – Twilight
Nikki Reed – Twilight
Alexander Skarsgård – True Blood
Ian Somerhalder – The Vampire Diaries
Paul Wesley – The Vampire Diaries

Buy the others below ...




Stuff happened on True Blood but all I saw was Hoyt

Our new friend Alex,  who will joining us again soon on Talk Blood Radio.

Guys I get it. Eric Northman? Not a nice guy. He was a Nazi and he’s eaten thousands of people and he was kind of stalking Sookie and sending rapey vibes her way and he once held LaFayette prisoner and he nearly killed Tara AFTER she turned awesome. So yeah. I understand the need to sweeten him up a bit. Wiping his memory? Good start! Killers who get amnesia often turn gentle like little kittens. They’re cute and cuddly and every once in a while they’ll extend their claws and cut the sh*t out of you.

See that’s perfect! It gives us an approachable Eric who can also be dangerous.

Only that’s not what we’ve been getting. We’ve been getting toddler Eric with a torso to die for.

Paola Turbay plays a witch in 'True Blood'

Go Houston !

Actress Paola Turbay has joined the cast of True Blood", a popular US television series, in the role of Antonia, a 17th century witch.
In the HBO fantasy series about vampires and werewolves and their passionate love lives, Turbay plays "a role very different from me, although sometimes at home they call me a witch", she laughingly remarked during a telephone interview with EFE from Los Angeles. However, she added that the role is "a challenge because of its complexity and depth". Antonia is a victim of the Inquisition, a spirit who is not at peace and who now arrives to complicate the lives of the protagonists, a telepath played by Anna Paquin and a vampire portrayed by Stephen Moyer. Turbay, who was born in Houston to Colombian parents....

Georgina Kincaid Series -Succubus Blues

When it comes to jobs in hell, being a succubus seems pretty glamorous. A girl can be anything she wants. The wardrobe is killer, and mortal men will do anything just for a touch. Granted, they often pay with their souls, but why get technical?

But Seattle succubus Georgina Kincaid’s life is far less exotic. Her boss is a middle-management demon with a thing for John Cusack movies. Her immortal best friends haven’t stopped teasing her about the time she shape-shifted into the Demon Goddess get-up complete with whip and wings. And she can’t have a decent date without sucking away part of the guy’s life. At least there’s her day job at a local bookstore—free books, all the white chocolate mochas she can drink, and easy access to bestselling, sexy writer, Seth Mortensen, aka He Whom She Would Give Anything to Touch but Can’t.
But dreaming about Seth will have to wait. Something wicked is at work in Seattle’s demon underground. And for once, all of her hot charms and drop-dead one-liners won’t help because Georgina’s about to discover there are some creatures out there that both heaven and hell want to deny…

What to know before joining the Werewolf Cathedral

(Warning: Werewolf website includes music, so turn down your sound or put on headphones!)

Just when I thought that vampire-themed "It Gets Better" ads would be the highlight of the day, I'm introduced to the Werewolf Cathedral via a thread in the SomethingAwful.com forums. Known as "The World's Only International Werewolf Religion & Secret Society," the Cathedral's ethos is simple: Humans have lost touch with their "base instincts" that allowed their ancestors to thrive.
In order to subscribe to the Werewolf philosophy of life, one must accept Social Darwinism as gospel truth. Except for all the racist parts, of course:

We believe that man is a predatory animal, and that by unifying his intellect with his instinct he becomes more empowered to fulfill that which he wills to do. We believe that Social Darwinism is the true way nature operates, whether man finds this to be cruel or not makes no difference in regards to it's truth. We believe in dealing with the world the way it is, not how it should be. It must be stressed however that we do not condone the racist aspect of Social Darwinism that was promoted in might is right, we see it from a non racist persceptive.

Blood Season 4: Mythological Creatures - Were-Panthers Video (HBO)

On True Blood, some like it HOYT! by Meerdith Woerner of io9.com

On True Blood, some like it HOYT!We hope to talk to Meredith this weekend on Talk Blood Radio !

Whoa-ho-ho there, True Blood. Last night delivered the sex fantasies out the wazoo. Let's take a ride on Jason Stackhouse's pansexual odyssey and visit Eric's handsome dreams in the wardrobe (a.k.a. Viking Vampire Narnia). We break it down, Pro/Con style.
Pro: Last week we thought True Blood was going to press repeat on the whole Mickens-shifter-dog-fighting plotline (that was terrible then and would be terrible now). But instead Tommy kills his parents. TWIST.

Charlaine Harris blogs some hints about next Sookie Stackhouse book !

Charlaine posted today :

I don't know why I always finish books in such a desperate scramble. Like the old proverb of a horse running when it smells its own barn, I'm always dashing toward the finish line. I always seem to be about two weeks behind schedule (usually, I tell myself, due to traveling). And there's always a good reason I want to have the book finished by a definite date – a vacation, a wedding, another project that has to be finished, or whatever.
I'm in the usual rush to conclude Sookie 12. This is the longest one of my books has gone without a title, and I'm not happy about that, but it was hard to determine the theme of the book. There are generic titles with "dead" in them I could use for almost any book, but I do like the title to be relevant. The rose just hasn't bloomed; but I'll bet it will in the next two weeks.
While I know where I want to be at the end of each book, I don't always know how I'm getting there. Sometimes I surprise myself. Last night, Sookie got kidnapped, and I'm going to see how that shakes out. A character I thought was dead is probably alive, and I'm real happy for him. Then again, if the work doesn't go so well today, he may be dead again. This is the fun (and the panic) of being a writer. Every day brings decisions, and I have the power of life and death and procreation over all these people I've invented.
It's both fun and an awesome (and awful) responsibility. When I was writing by myself, before we all connected on the web and in so many personal appearances, it was easy to go my own way. Now my attention has been drawn to the fact that lots of people are waiting on my way to be picked. Scary!
My first responsibility is to my characters and to my own vision as a writer. There, my path is clearly marked.
Running neck and neck with that is my responsibility to write the best book I can. I always try. Sometimes, it works. Sometimes, the work falls short of my intention. That's the way it goes in any endeavor.
How readers react to the book is not my responsibility. There, I can only hope.
It took me some years and a lot of both joy and anguish to figure all this out.
And now, back to the computer screen, and a guy who may or may not be dead.
I'll find out in a page or two.

Blood Work! "True Blood" Vlog 4.5: "The World Needs More Beekepers"

But will we see Eric's " Gracious plenty" ? : Alan Ball's says there will be a True Blood version of Sookie & Eric in shower but will we see the " gracious plenty " ?

Ball has said the there will "technically" be a scene in True Blood where we see Sookie and Eric in the shower. He said in an interview that “There will be a moment where Sookie and Eric are together in the shower. But it may be weirder and dirtier than the one in the book,"

So it won't be the same as we see in  Charlaine's "Dead to the world "and now the question is will we get the famous quote from Eric about his "gracious plenty " ?
Here's the exchange from the book


I'd heard a lot about men who didn't care if the woman had her pleasure, or perhaps such men assumed that if they were happy, their partner was, too. But neither of the men I'd been with had been like that. I didn't know if that was because they were vampires, or because I'd been lucky, or both.
Eric had paid me many compliments, and I realized I hadn't said anything to him that indicated my admiration. That hardly seemed fair. He was holding me, and my head was on his shoulder. I murmured into his neck, "You are so beautiful."
"What?" He was clearly startled.
"You've told me you thought my body was nice." Of course that wasn't the adjective he'd used, but I was embarrassed to repeat his actual words. "I just wanted you to know I think the same about you."
I could feel his chest move as he laughed, just a little. "What part do you like best?" he asked, his voice teasing.
"Oh, your butt," I said instantly.
"My . . . bottom?"
"Yep."
"I would have thought of another part."
"Well, that's certainly . . . adequate," I told him, burying my face in his chest. I knew immediately I'd picked the wrong word.
"Adequate?" He took my hand, placed it on the part in question. It immediately began to stir. He moved my hand on it, and I obligingly circled it with my fingers. "This is adequate? "
"Maybe I should have said it's a gracious plenty?"
"A gracious plenty. I like that," he said.
He was ready again, and honestly, I didn't know if I could. I was worn out to the point of wondering if I'd be walking funny the next day.

How Charlaine Harris sunk her teeth into 'True Blood'

Dipping into the dark side opened new worlds for Charlaine Harris. The soft-spoken native of Tunica, Miss., was already an established mystery writer when she began penning her Southern Vampire series, which in turn became the popular HBO drama True Blood.

Harris published her first mystery tome, Sweet and Deadly, way back in 1981 and soon after began turning out her Aurora Teagarden mystery series, about a small-town librarian sleuth. Her first Lily Bard mystery novels, Shakespeare’s Landlord, came out in 1996 and ran for five instalments.

'True Blood' Stars Say It Gets Better Kristin " Pam" Bauer and Alex "Eric" Skarsgard - "It Gets Better" video

For those of you who couldn't get enough of Eric on last night's episode of "True Blood," don't worry because the Swedish actor is featured--along with his castmates, Rutina Wesley, Kristin Bauer, and creator Alan Ball--in a new set of "It Gets Better" PSA's.

The project, which was started last fall by writer Dan Savage in response to a wave of very public LGBT youth suicides, has had many celebrity contributors since its creation, but this is the first time the "True Blood" cast has taken part in the project.

The hit HBO show has been labeled "The Most Gay-Friendly Show on TV," and its story lines often revolve around "vampire rights," tolerance and acceptance.





Join the cast of True Blood as they take the “It Gets Better” pledge: http://www.itgetsbetter.org. The Trevor Project offers help to any young person who is struggling.

The Trevor Project is determined to end suicide among LGBTQ youth by providing life-saving and life-affirming resources including our nationwide, 24/7 crisis intervention lifeline, digital community and advocacy/educational programs that create a safe, supportive and positive environment for everyone.

New Sookie Short Story Aug 2nd --Home Improvement: Undead Edition

Table of Contents for Home Improvement: Undead Edition

“If I Had a Hammer” by Charlaine Harris
Yes, it is a Sookie story.

“Wizard Home Security” by Victor Gischler
At one point, I e-mailed Victor to ask about something, and he responded that Marvel was slamming him with X-Men deadlines. I have been an X-Men fan for years, and I squee-ed as loud as Havok yells when I got that note. (You have to be a fellow X-Men fan to get that reference.)

“Gray” by Patricia Briggs
Not werewolves or shapeshifters this time–vampires!

“Squatters’ Rights” by Rochelle Krich
I don’t even know how to describe this one. But it’s delightfully creepy!

“Blood on the Wall” by Heather Graham
Heather gives us nasty murders in New Orleans, cultists, and a PI with strong family feelings.

“The Mansion of Imperatives” by James Grady
Yes, this is the James Grady who wrote Six Days of the Condor. When I told my father he was going to be in the anthology, he squee-ed. In a manly way, of course.

“The Strength Inside” by Melissa Marr
Don’t you just hate home owner associations?

“Woolsley’s Kitchen Nightmare” by E. E. Knight
It’s hard work putting the perfect dining experience together.

“Through This House” by Seanan McGuire
Yes, it’s a Toby Daye story!

“The Path” by S. J. Rozan
Nobody writes about China like S.J!

“Rick the Brave” Stacia Kane
How can a guy named Terrible be such a wonderful character? And Chess is there, too.

“Full-Scale Demolition” Suzanne McLeod
Suzanne has published three of her amazing Spellcrack books in the UK, but so far only one is out in the US. You’ll want to buy it.

“It’s All in the Rendering” by Simon R. Green
Some houses have doors on both sides–and some Houses open onto more than one world.

“In Brightest Day” by Toni L.P. Kelner
In which I exploit the hitherto neglected sub-genre of zombie mysteries.

That’s all you get until August! But unlike most construction projects, this one should be on time.

Go Ask Dallas : Lafayette called Marnie " Witchie - Poo" sounds familiar , why ??


Q Dallas Lafayette said to Marnie last night "Witchie-Poo, you have royally fucked us" that sounds familiar where have I heard " Witchie - Poo" ?

A You know that name from HR Pufnstuff  - Lafayette isn't old enough to remember it but Alan Ball sure is.


H.R. Pufnstuf was a children's television series produced by Sid and Marty Krofft in the United States. It was the first Krofft live-action, life-size puppet program. The seventeen episodes were originally broadcast September 6, 1969 to September 4, 1971. The broadcasts were successful enough that NBC kept it on the Saturday morning schedule for a full three seasons, until August 1972, when it was cancelled.

One of the main charcaters was : Wilhelmina W. Witchiepoo (played by Billie Hayes) who rode on a broomstick-like vehicle called the Vroom Broom.

“True Blood” Sucker Punch: Season 4, Ep. 5 by Mark Blankeship The Critical Condition

If the ghost of my grandmother told me not to fall in love with a man—even a six foot tall, Norse god of a man who was half naked, emotionally available, and lying in my bed—then I would listen to Grandmama’s ghost. And that is why, by the end of “Me and the Devil,” I was ready to snatch Sookie bald-headed. Girl, Gran told you from beyond the grave to stay away from Eric. I realize that he’s giving you sad-puppy eyes and that his ever-shirtless body only needs a dusting of powdered sugar to be the world’s best dessert, but those are diversions. I’ve spent the entire season insisting that Eric, though I love him, is ultimately a character who thrives on owning, on possessing what he wants, and even with his memory wiped, his impulsive need to havehavehave has already led to the death of your fairy godmother and a very disturbing dream in which Godric’s ghost encourages him to eat you. Eric may love your hair in the sunlight and be willing to stain your pillow with his sweet bloody years, but you need to back away. If you won’t listen to me, you should at least listen to Gran.

Or how about Tara? You know, your so-called best friend that you’ve been lying to, endangering, or ignoring for four seasons? When she confesses that she’s been lying to her Nawlins girlfriend, you breezily declare that honesty is the best policy, even though you know that Tara is terrified of the very vampire who is currently in your basement. Do you think she might have a point when she sees Eric, tells you you’re crazy, and runs away? Does it occur to you that even though you and Eric have barely kissed, you’ve already started lying to everyone and hurting people? Have you considered that most good relationships don’t involve flagrant deceit? Or that you tend to selfishly follow your hormones around at the expense of everyone else?

Gothtopia True Blood: Selling Your Soul in a Buyer's Market by Jefwithonef Houston Press



What is a soul and, more importantly in this rough economic time, what exactly is it worth?

There's plenty going on in True Blood right now. Jason has to deal with the fact that he's been raped, and who does that make him now? Tara has been living life as a lesbian cage fighter from Atlanta; now that her New Orleans girlfriend has found out, she must choose which reality she will inhabit. Most importantly, Eric, who in his amnesia has been stripped of everything, is forced to hear repeated testimony of acts that to a stranger, as he is to himself, sound monstrous and unholy.

Only the affection and faith of Sookie, who herself is torn between her feelings for the vulnerable vampire and her remembrance of pain suffered either at his hands or because of his actions, keeps him moving forward. He spends most of the episode exploring his emptiness.

'True Blood' recap: Mystics, mayhem and making out on the front lawn- LA Times

Holly Thou shalt not kill is one of the most widely accepted of the Ten Commandments — it's hard to find people who think murder should be sanctioned (except maybe on Showtime's "Dexter," but that's a conversation for another time). Still, it's difficult to grieve for Joe Lee Mickens, he with the penchant for unclean underwear and brutal dogfighting, who is killed by his son Tommy at the start of Sunday's episode.
Tommy strangles Joe Lee with a choke chain before bashing in his head. Unfortunately, Melinda comes between them during the scuffle  and Tommy inadvertently deals her a fatal blow as well. Panicked, he decides to head to Sam's for help, throwing the bodies in his van. The brothers opt to dump the remains in the swamp, but on their way, Andy Bellefleur (hopped up on V, naturally) pulls Sam over for speeding. Spotting blood on the door, he demands Sam open the back of the van.
