True Blood > True Blood Review: Too Much of a Bad Thing > Comments Page 3
Ha, "Vampwich," only TruBlood fans could've created that term, fantastic...
Jesus literally exercised a spirit from Lafayette's body tonight. Might that ability not come into play later on... say with Marntonia??
Nan mentioned the tolerance event to Bill via skype when he was asking for a warrant to execute Eric several episodes ago. So while there wasn't a big build-up to it, it was mentioned.
This wasn't my favorite episode, but it was entertaining, and I loved getting more Bill and Sookie than we've seen, like, all season.
Why in the world is this season so short??! Its been what? Five episodes and now there's only three left? And might I say this has been THEE WORST season of TB so far! I hate it! I was the raw, fearless, ruthless, merciless Eric back. This mamby-pamby Sookie lovin bitch version of Eric is pissin me off!! And can someone just kill Bill, Tara, Tommy & Andy already?! Please???!!!! I hate that they ruined Hoyt n Jessica's relationship and are now trying to throw her w Jason. And why aren't they addressing his rape??! They spent like one episode on it. Sure Jason is a whore, but that crap should be messin w his head just a bit more than him wanting to bone his best friends ex! Ugh! Thoroughly disappointed w this season! I love Alcide, but they do need to make him more interesting. Ok. Rant over. I'll tell u if I'll still be a Trubie when this season ends.
@jamie: No, I did not read the books. That's not a pre-req for watching the show. Alan Ball has said on numerous occasions that the show differs greatly from the books; they are just used as a guide. Viewers have to separate the two. After all, consider:
Jess wasn't even a character in the books!
Dude ... any True Blood is good Blood. I loved the Eric/Sookie/Bill sandwich, talk abt every Trubie's Dream!! Hubba Hubba!!! ... Ok the Hoyt, "For you, Monster" scene, I'll give you that, that was great! Marnie ... excuse me, Antonia (plz dont kill me!) ... scares the crap outta me! And I love our vamps as much as the next Trubie, but lets face it ... they kinda deserve it. DRAMA!!!! I say the highlight of the episode tho was Debbie, LOVED how she's all, can we trust her? Naw, I dont trust that chick! ...well, maybe ..naw! And I am with you on the Laf thing, LOVE me some Laf, but we get it ... dude's a medium. All in all...my thirst was quenched on this episode .... for now. :D
Unfortunately I don't have the ability to watch True Blood weekly. No HBO :( But reading this makes me wonder if they author actually read the books. And to be honest, with how the plot is turning out, I'm kind of glad I can't watch it. They're really getting far away from the books.
PS - I also thought it was cool that Sookie dreamed of "real" Eric...a good sign I think!
I too thought it was a weak episode. But I did notice one thing during the dream: Eric was always first. First to appear, first to kiss her, and he was the one Sookie turned to kiss first on the sofa. Having never been in a vampwich it is entirely possible that I am reading too much into the situation.
I, too, thought the dream sequence was BORINGGGGGGGG..........UGH...I would agree too that it was a LAZY way to show Sookie has feeling for both Bill and Eric. Ball must be getting bored with the show...........
Unless it comes into play later, the Lafayette being a medium isn't jiving with me at all, and with only 3 episodes left this season I highly doubt it will come into play.......as it's looking like the last three episodes will be dealing with the (hopefully) final conflict between Antonia and the vampires as to me that is getting boring as well. Why is Antonia keeping the others trapped at her shop????
Debbie back on V.......any surprise there? Her taking Sookie to Antonia.......hmmmmmm...I have to wonder how long it will be before Debbie tries to kill Sookie again.
Jessica/Hoyt/Jason.......No doubt Hoyt will find out.....
Andy/Arlene/Terry.......looks like Terry and Andy will be having a major fight due to Andy's V addiction..........
Only 3 episodes left .....
I so agree... On many, many levels... Love the books and I want to watch them come to life. I don't mind the other characters but give us some of the things that made the show possible. Stick to the books.. At least most of the book!!
I don't like your review at all. tommy is a dumb redneck, but I like his part on the show and yes, it was nice of him to step up and be Sam and take a beating. Jesus and Lafyette - love them too. I didn't particularly like this part today with him being taken over as a medium, but I loved lafayette's character from day one. He adds "character" to the show. Yeah, Terry and Arlene I can do without and whatever stupidity they are planning with this "devil" baby. Andy needs to cool it with the V and the dream was stupid. I agree they should have publisized this Tolerance conference a little better and drawn it out a little - gave us something to think about. Question, did Debbie have a last minute pang of "I hate that girl" and turn Sookie in on purpose? She surely wasn't happy to see her back in the car. Sadly, I thought she was genuine at Sookie's (Eric's) house. Nuff said. I'm not loving this whole season, but don't particularly agree with your comments on tonights episode. P
Ok, pretty much everything you said was right. I am disappointed in the show becaue they have gone so far from the novel series. Please Tommy?? WTF is that about? So do NOT like his addition to the series. Debbie Pelt dies in the novels--why is she still here--to keep Alcide busy--ugh. Wish they would have used more of the novel info--they are really struggling on this episode. Is Sookie becoming the HBO version of Anita Blake the vampire hunter from Laurell K. Hamilton's novel series---double uggh! But Granny is rolling in her grave over this episode! IMHO
I think this episode was a good one. Some points you made about it was on point (Alicide being good all the time and the dream sequence) BUT In all honesty, I'm sick of seeing the Sookie/Bill/Eric triangle All the time. Not knocking it but I like watching other characters get some screen besides just seeing Sookie and Eric in bed most episodes..... Also, i was hoping for a bigger story on LaFayette and the baby but.... I'll bite. And Jason is going to have alot to explain when Hoyt finds out he and Jessica did the deed in his truck... Overall, good episode, can't wait for next week....
I agree. I don't care about Tommy and wish he would just go away. I get the Jason/Jessica pairing. And the Tolerance event, yeah, no build up, just sprung on us. Always like Jessica Tuck (Nan) no matter what setting. I don't trust Debbie no matter what Sookie pulled from her mind. I like that Antonia is a great adversary, but tired of it all and want Eric to get his memory back. Juin
They mentioned the Tolerance thingy two weeks ago, when Bill told Nan he wanted to give Eric the true death. she said she need to see him there and he seemed reluctant.
I'd watch it again just to see Alcide nekkid. There seems to be a general lack of heat and suspense. I am as tired of Tommy as I was of Tara. I miss Pammy. Where is the suspense folks? I actually don't really care what happens over the next three episodes, which really sucks for me.
