True Blood wastes all the silver in Bon Temps and uses idiocy to forward the plot

From our new friend Alex at Fempop

Super gratuitous sex romantically shot has to be earned to avoid being same old same old T&A. You have to feel like this is the culmination of years of yearning by the two characters. Like if they don’t rip off their clothes RIGHT NOW the world will burn with their love. That means their love has to be laid out carefully and organically and the actors have to have David Duchovny/Gillian Anderson levels of chemistry.

Alexander Skarsgård and Anna Paquin are no Duchovny and Anderson. When they cuddle and trade affectionate endearments it’s so maternal I come close to lactating.

The writer never mentions the silver again, but I thought it was really strange that these guys had to be weighed down with pounds of silver, but in season one, a thin chain of silver held Bill down while the drainers were draining him. Makes no sense. I also disagree about the Sookie/Eric chemistry. I think they have great chemistry, but I will admit they are making Eric look too simple and cowed.
