True Blood > True Blood Round Table: "And When I Die" > Comments Page 2
Pleeeease... Vampire Diaries? You might as well throw Twilight in there too then as the "better vampire" story. We all know VD and Twilight are about the pussy vampires. What I don't like about those two is that they're just love stories, thinly veiled under the pretext of being a supernatural story about vampires. True Blood, on the other hand, is a supernatural show first, a love story second, and that's why it's the best. Plus, it's not afraid to show some blood, violence, and sex (granted, VD is on basic television and Twilight is for kids). TB all the way!
You forgot about Andy and the fairy in the woods. Bet a little magical Andy is going to show up.
Its becoming clearly obvious that vampire diaries is now undoubtedly the better vampire show. Can't wait for Thursday.
So Kevin Alejandro left Southland just so he could be stabbed by Marnie & dumped from the show? Not the best career decision, unless Ball told him beforehand. If not, I'd expect KA's hands were squeezing on Ball's neck the day he found out.
Am I the only one who really enjoyed this season? Yes, there were plotholes and some bad choices. No, it was not as focused as usual. It had its flaws, but I watch True Blood for craziness, blood, sex and ridiculously vicious characters. I received all of these things. However, I'm just watching the show for the hell of it. It reminds me to take my life less seriously every week.
So... One day after the season is over, and I'm already at a lost as to what it was all about. A witch who died; lesbian cage-fighting Tara dies; Jason continues his quest to have sex with every female in Bon Temps; Bill kills Nan too; still not sure what the f$&% happened to Eric; Andy and Terry are still borderline retarded; and Lafayette gets witch powers and kills his demonic lover.
Now, you'd think that'd be interesting... But it wasn't. I've never been more bored with lesbian cage-fighters than I was with Tara.
The promise of further boredom hangs in the air - Resurrection of Tara as a zombie lesbian cage-fighter; more Terry/Arlene; more Sookie in distress; more Alcide; more miscellaneous plotless Sam; more Andy; Lafayette taking over the depressed whiny role from Tara...
I think I'm sort of done with true blood..and the books
@Terrie Lynn McDonald Coleman, well I agree that with only 12 episodes, the series feels way too short to truncate the whole arc in the books. I think what Alan Ball has proven succinctly is that he does have he's own version/adaptation of the series which means that we can never truly know what lies ahead. This can be both good and bad for our future protagonists.
So to summarise some speculated stories and spoilers:
1.) Is Tara dead? This is probably the only time I've disagreed with the reviewers... Matt, Eric, and Carissa which is that Tara isn't going anywhere and it's not really my choice, but every character serves a purpose; even Tara.
2.) Is Terry bad? Well, its nice for Rene to come back as a ghost to warn that Terry is more insane than he is?
3.) What will happen with the whole "Eric/Bill/Eddgington" saga? I suspect a revolt and alliance against the authority next season. But perhaps Eddgington will betray them to the Fidel De Castro; as previously mentioned.
I would give the season a D , to me is seemed rushed like we were getting interested in storyline and as soon as they become interesting theyd be over and done with.
the fairys : what the hell happened there one episode of sookie escaping and then we hear no more of it.
rene/baby is evil: rushed again they could of made it way more intersting but yet again is was rushed and i was feeling like wtf happened there
terry/v addict: that went on far too long and was wayy to embarrinsing to watch.
jason/jessica: hot ! a actually good storyline that i enjoyed (seeing jason naked :P ) but felt bad for hoyt.
eric memory loss: they could of made this hot with sookie and eric having great sex in the shower but to be honest they let us all down the dream like sex pffft a bit c**p and major let down. eric was a bit baby like and i was wishing for the sarcastic sexy eric to come back. (wasnt complaing about him being topless alot tho)
marnie: No way near the sort of badass they can
I just cant believe Kevin Alejandro left southland to be in true blood and then he DIES in that too!!!!! He seems to have the worst luck. Unlike tara he better not be gone forever!
Also everyone seems to forgot Lafyettes potential new powers! He must have jesus' family power + if marni left anything in him + and hes a medium= him becoming the WILLOW of true blood- the most powerful person on the show! I hope he becomes a main story line next series.
Sooooo do dead bodies just disappear in this show? Marnie and her bearded assistant could possibly be resolved by vamps, but what about Marcus and Jesus...? And Tommy's death not having consequence for the werewolves, police around the area must not care anymore :p
I don't have a lot to say - just that I really hated the ending. I started to really like this show this year - but not any more!
I liked Tara better this season than in season's past. I also liked Lafayette. Here is my question: What the hell was up with the minister showing up at Jason's door? Also, who was the were licking his chops at Sam's? Also, Sookie killing Debbie might put a kink in the relationship that could develop with Alcide. Not sure I want Sookie to be with Alcide.
Hope you guys read my comments on the review of the finale.
I agree with all of you. The writing this season was subpar at best.
I'm hoping Alan Ball isn't growing tired of doing the show. How many seasons did Six Feet Under last?
Oh, and I'm in I DON'T THINK TARA IS DEAD camp.
I think Russell and Steve will team up next season, so I'm most excited about that. Nothing against Alcide fans, but I'm still hoping he will get 1. a personality and character or 2. killed off. Otherwise just a waste of time, IMO.
And my wishes for Season 5: TO GET THEIR SHIT TOGETHER!
Ok, how the heck did Eric & Bill get chained to the fire pit from Hell... Marnie inside Jesus would have proven to be a better story line, you could have fast forwarded that a bit... I believe that was a very big deal, and we have no idea how that happened... Next thing we see both Eric & Bill with chains and fire... OK - Whatever... Nan gone - good thing she was a bit over the top - but the King do believe that the is going to be returning and he is going to be pissed... Talking about over the top... That was who was buried in the cement parking lot... Wait till next season, and Tara, well I'm up in the air on that one... Yes and No about her being killed off, I didn't like the whole Saving Sooki thing - But that Debbie Yeah on that one, and Raphel' well that didn't sit well with the whole Black Magic thing, it's a good thing he is gone as well... Pam is freakin out that her love Eric is being interupted by little miss Sooki, That should prove to be tasteful next season... J
What really sucks, is that the book was so much more badass than the show. The witches weren't these scared little wannabes, they were badass werewolves in addition to being witches. Seriously, they have screwed with the storyline so badly, that nothing makes sense. Read the books and you will see what I am talking about.
Enough already with "True Blood" Waiting for the return of "The Game Of Thrones!! True Blood needs to generate more heat to hold its audience.....
i cant believe that u killed off tara and jesus he was so perfect for lafette and he is goning to be so devistated that tara is dead too poor guy :( tysm for getting rid of marnie thought huge fan.
Cant believe they killd off Nan.... big mistake
I think you guys are a bit harsh. You bring up a ton of great points with the multiple dropped storylines but sometimes i was pleased with that. putting continuity aside, i hated the fairy storylines and the werepanthers as well. i thought killing off Tara was a great move, i hate her character but it finally showed that True Blood has some balls and can kill of a major character.
I also really enjoyed the witch storyline, at least Antonia/Marnie was an actual threat. The werewolves last year were completely useless but the witches proved to actually have some power over the vampires and i enjoyed that. Top it off I loved Jessica/Jason this season, that was a surprising development that turned out great.
Also sad to see Jesus go but I love when a show kills off a character and it affects me, that means they are doing their job right! I am supposed to care about these characters and mourn them when they die, this is a genre/horror show people!
Im definitely most excited for
Tara is amazing, hopefully she is not dead.
