True Blood > True Blood Season Finale Review: Some Deaths, Lots of Dialogue > Comments Page 2
i hated most of this season. i thank the show would be better if they would stay with the books more. Why does eric have to always end up alone. i hate bill. however i do like that they him more balls this time around, he was as boring he normanly is. i like the sookie in the books better to.i hope next season is alot better than this one was, and that they really let sookie and eric be together like in the books.
I have read all the books and I know video is never identical to the written word...but resemblance would be nice. This season is the worst. No action. No real storyline and I love Claude and Claudine, where are they? And Eric, Bill you have been turned into "PUPPY DOGS"! Where did Harris' vamps go. True Blood, not hardly. Truly Abysmal is more like it. Eric and Sookie didn't sizzle they just fizzled. Book 4 was one of my favorite, season 4 was not.
I am more than a little disappointed that I kept paying for HBO as long as I did. (just to see this season of True Blood). I really expected more. Poorly executed. Too much build up for such minimal resolve. And is just me or did it seem like a really short season? I had no idea that was the finale until last night when the finale never came on. WTF???
The show has been in a steep and steady decline since the start of the second season. Like a sucker (no pun intended) I hung on up until there were three episodes left in this season. I just couldn't keep putting myself through it anymore. Please, Alan, put a stake through this series' heart.
I thought there must be another episode in the season this one was so lame for a finale.
I totally agree it was a let down.
The episode started off promising, Sam is left standing alone while Luna and her kid drive off after Alcide kills Marcus, but then she shows up at Tommy's grave any everything is back on with them. We never find out what happens to Marcus, it isn't even a cliffhanger it just sort of fizzles out.
It just goes down hill form there. I like the show i want it to be good. I love Eric and Pam but apparently they no longer like each other that I felt was unnecessary it could have waited until next season it did not add to finale, they could have used those minuets to sort something out.
I thought they got rid of Tara when she ran away, god do I wish she stayed away, I really hope they don't bring her back even as a vampire.
The only really interesting thing that came out of the episode is the Jason/Jessica relationship I'm interested to see where that goes.
I really hope that sort something out by next year. They have a whole year - sit down and get
Has anyone given any thought to the possibility of it being Halloween and the Reverend Steve Newlin having halloween fake teeth in his mouth to greet jason with????
Not the best nor the worst episode. I've read all the books but enjoy the show for what it is, escapism. Sookie & Eric just couldn't pull it off so yes there needs to be some tension to rekindle the fire. Jason should have turned into a werepanther but I'm SO glad the hotshot storyline is over. I think it would be hillarious if Pam shows up and saves Tara, then out of gratitude they hook up for an episode, before Tara falls for Hoyt. But the character I miss and wish would return more often is Ruby, Lafayette's mother. Let's hope next season returns to the fantasy fictional format.
I loved Charlain Harris's books!!! Wish the series writers and producers would have stuck a little closer to them. They make sense, this stuff is just odd and vaguely irritating.
I completely agree with your review. Couldn't have said it better myself!
Not having read the books, I enjoyed watching the show through season 4 but coming to the season finale, much anticipated, I found myself wondering a lot about the narration rhythm. It seemed to me they had to cut short on pretty much all the nodes, confronted to the time they took through all the season to take us viewers to the climax point. Whole episodes about Jason in Hotshot lead to apparently nothing but to set an excuse so he can end in Jessica's arms (and yes, Hoyt is a "tree with a checker shirt" imo, but their relationship was more down to earth). All the witches' saga which seemed to potentially mine the vampire community plans pops up like a soap bubble in a mass glamor expedient and a cheesy post-mortem reconciliation on Halloween.
All the ruckus about Arlene's baby being a little demon also ended up into just a restless ghost possessing a dirty doll. Big tease.
Overall it feels like they shot so much more that got poorly cut out and reassembled in a confused way, kin
This season was filled with cheesy moments/lines IMHO. And I HATED it.
And that Tara died for Sookie, jumping infront of her ...
They should've done it like Debbie punches Sookie and Tara tries to stop her and Debbie breaks her neg or something. If they really wanted to make her the martyr.
I enjoyed watching the episode, althrough some moments were kind of boring. But I'm very disappointed by the show. This whole season was a joke. The whole Eric/Sookie relationship is sooo disappointing ! It was so cute in the books... I don't care if they don't follow the books (it's more fun to watch), but I don't forgive the fact they just spoiled Sookie and Eric's story. I'm so sick of the Bill/Sookie/Eric love triangle !
Too many characters, too many useless storylines (the fairies, the whole part in Hotshot with Jason at the beginning... he didn't even turn into a werepanther). It felt like the scenarist didn't even know where they wanted to go with the show, they started something and then changed their mind and forgot about it...
I really hope season 5 will be better. I don't have high expectations anymore, so I guess I can't be disappointed.
PS: Sorry for my bad english and mistakes.
i knew debbie was guna die, its in the books but it makes sense in them sookie does kill her and eric helps her hide the body, but tara marries someone and has a kid and was never gay she was hardly in the books and dont make terry a bad guy ! hes soo sweet and lovable dont make zak (gilmore girls anyone) evil its just not right!
can tara please have Alcide? sinceits written so far off the book but first she needs to stop beenin such a whiny ----
I REALLY didn't like this episode. I think the previous one, where Marnie dies then possesses Lafayette, was the best episode of the season and definitely would have been a perfect season ender.
This episode definitely seemed like they ran out of material and stretched out pointlessly. It could have been tweaked into a season 5 opener, with all the crap it introduced.
Not to mention Debbie killing Tara and Sookie killing Debbie was the most RIDICULOUS thing I've ever seen on True Blood. There were so many other opportunities for that to have gone down. This episode was a complete disappointment.
Jesus died. Tara died. I'm done with this show. goodbye Allan Ball!
I love it!!!
I quite literally, could not have said it better myself. I wholeheartedly agree on all fronts.
I stopped enjoying True Blood in season three, but have continued to watch throughout.
I couldn't agree with your feelings more. This was completely awful until the final five minutes with the gay storm troopers.
i think yall try to hard to think and analyze it to pieces.. it is what it was made for , enjoyment not real life...just watch it and enjoy
i think yall think way too much and try so hard to analyze analyze analyze. Just enjoy it for what it is. a series for enjoyment not real life . I simply enjoy it and and look forward to next year
True Blood is a shining example of overproduction. What started out as a tight and suspenseful yarn is now a giant bloody snowball. I think the decision to not kill Lafayette (as per Harris) in S1 led to an explosion of new, completely unnecessary characters and their inability to die or just go away. It's as if the team just decided to leap from whim to whim without the need to justify or resolve anything. "Hey, we like you, here's your own pointless arc!" What was wrong with the characters from the book? The books a written in the first person, so there is definitely a need to fill in, but it has become ludicrous. Ah, and I killed Tara in my mind a LONG time ago. Too late, guys. Nice review - glad to see I'm not the only nonplussed one.
I agree with u mandy. Sookie is much better in the book. And your right we really don't get to know her on the show. I forget that a lot of people didn't read the books so they just think she's a weak woman and she's really not supposed to be. I hope she comes back stronger next season
@leanne Agreed :)
