I love this show. The hooded strigoi hit squad are no joke. "She is corrupted" So cold. By the way, does Abraham's sword have a name. I feel like it does.

I'm not sure it has a name but it should right? We'll get more details about Sardu's walking stick soon I bet.

The Last Ship Review: Dangerous New World

I knew the Nathan James had to get back to a US port sometime but found this episode underwhelming, and very predictable. The previous episodes had a wow factor and this episode just felt like a filler to get you to the next season with a couple of possible new story lines. Captain Chandler seemed to let the emotion of finding his family overwhelm his military instincts that have served him so well previously. How does a handful of local police take over the ship? That was just too much of a leap. Don't know where this is leading to next season beyond Tex rescuing Rachel, probably at the expense of his own life, but if they don't get back out to sea then the title will have little meaning. Mind you there were actually two ships if you count the larger Russian ship. I found this a refreshing series up until this episode and hope it doesn't go Revolution on us.

True Blood Finale: An Insulting, Illogical Slap in the Face

I have only read the series, I haven't actually watched it. In the books, I was always hoping for Sookie to wind up with Bill, but it never came close. She spent more time with Eric and wound up with Sam. Does this not happen at all in this series?

No. Bill is like her true love that she keeps going back to. Her and Sam never really happens and she does have a thing with Eric but mainly because he's amnesic.

She loved Eric as well, even said as much in past seasons, but this season was a ret-con for the character of Beeeeel the abuser. Too bad this show used to be good. The last two seasons in particular, the ones Buckner too over were all centered on Bill. What a waste of film.

Thank you! You just stated EVERTHING I was feeling-- like we had jumped into a misogynitic era of Leave it to Beaver. And then your reviewer said "pretty good". I was thinking I missed something. Thank you!

The key difference between Jessica/Hoyt and Sookie/Bill is that Jessica will never have a normal life, no matter who she ends up with, she doesnt have a snowballs chance in hell of conceiving a child. Sookie does. Bill had heard Sookie whine a million bloody times about wishing she were normal so its only logical for him to assume thats what she wanted, and accepting that they could never have that kind of normalcy. Other than that, Bill ran true to form, hes always been mentally and emotionally weak, and died the same way too. I enjoyed it, but I'm not one of the many who were expecting something mindblowingly spectacular.

Except Sookie chose to remain Fae and Bill STILL wanted to die. So this all comes down to her conceiving a child? Really???

If they had built on and carried through on the foundation laid down by Alan Ball, Bill would have been revealed as the breeder of Fairy sunscreen/vampire crack babies rather than the queen, which would have made sense of Bill's smarmy insistence that Sookie procreate. Alas, egos got in the way of a good story.

Bill as the big bad guy would have been pretty awesome, but maybe they and others just liked the character too much.

....and any dude would do for that matter !!
Great message for the female audience. Matt, I'm as puzzled as you are ...
For a moment I thought that True Blood could make a difference in TV history : a virulent playdoyer for tolerance (sexuality) and acceptance (minorities) , also one against atrocities commited in the name of religions, and politician duplicity in general ....the storylines didn't matter that much, as long as they sticked to the fundamentals which made TB so special.
But after Allan Ball's departure, the spirit was gone. It was as if the writers were paddling back from their previous statements ... So it came as no big surprise to me when TB ended up celebrating motherhood as a woman's career plan and displaying capitalism ferocity as a business model.
And this comes from a mother of 3, running her own company .... who used to enjoy watching a clever, witty and sexy show on her sunday nights.
So, THANK YOU FOR NOTHING HBO !

yes but at the same time Hoyt could have had a child with someone. If we are looking at it that way then how is it fair to Hoyt either? Just saying...Everything else you said I agree with.

Hell on Wheels Review: Moving Forward

So I'm glad I'm not the only who wishes for another unconventional female lead. I understand in good dramas character do get killed off but I think L.Bell got killed off too soon. It would have been nice to see her work on the railroad a bit before meeting her end. Would have loved to see her "put it to Durant" a bit before dying. Bohannon is a great lead and fun to watch that is why it is frustrating to see him stuck with the Mormon wife as the whole scenario does not really fit. Heck, he never even visited the whores and never made a move on Lily so hard to believe he'd take advantage of a Mormon virgin.Hopefully the writers find a sensible way to undo that union. Being stuck with a child bride takes a little of the bad out of Bohannon's badass-ness. This is a western and if I wanted to see men struggle with their families I'd tune into Parenthood. They do such an awesome job on the scenery and sets I won't give up yet, Ruth is starting to get a lil too weird, not sure why they have her headed that way and it would be nice now to see Elam return. I wanna like the new season, but whereas in season 2 at the end of the episodes I was like-cool. Now I'm like, ok, oh well, maybe next episode things will get fixed. It used to be sooo good. Come on AMC

I'm so happy the desperate scramble to resolve plot lines ended. But I'm not happy they went with the Harry Potter ending.

I love this show more every week. I don't think Terry will shoot him but then again, this is Reckless so you never really know. Please don't let Jamie go back to Preston! (if he survives!) She belongs we Roy and we need to see them finally get together before the end of the season. I want Reckless season 2!

Avatar
@ Karen

I also hope that Jamie doesn't welcome back Preston. Really enjoying her chemistry with Roy.He is really almost too perfect. What I am really looking forward to is the possible devastating effects Lee Anne lying and actions, will have on Arliss, Jamie and Roy. I actually would be happy to see her and that low life, Terry, just run off and never come back. They deserve each other.
