True Blood: Ep 7 LiveBlog


When we last left Renard parish, Eric and Jess almost died (er lived then died again,) but they didn't. There was a bunch of feeding and sex. Then, all the personalities involved attempted reconciliation with the witches, but that turned ugly. The cliffhanger moment came when Sookie was injured, plus the witches used silver to capture Vampire Eric. And, here we go again...


True Blood: Ep 5: LiveBlogged


When we last lost Renard Parish, Sookie was making out with Eric, Vampire Bill had Marnie the Witch under lockdown in some sort of Gitmo-esque facility, Tara's lesbian lover in NOLA was onto her second life, and  and Vampire Bill convinced Pam to spill the beans about Sookie's landlord. And, now Episode 5 minute by minute...


True Blood: Ep 5 Liveblog


Last week, Jason escaped the shapeshifting panthers,and was rescued by Hoyt and Jessica, but Tommy, the shapeshifting dog, was collared so he can be used in a Michael Vick style dogfight operation. (Really.) Meanwhile, Eric tripped on Faireie blood, and Marnie, the cliche named witch, is becoming very evil. In fact, she used her powers to cut through Pam's Tammy Fay Baker-esque makeup and dissolve the very flesh of her face. Sookie has kept her clothes on and grown distant from Bill. Now for Episode Five!


True Blood: LiveBlogged

Episode 3 Minute By Minute



When we last left our favorite tale of Louisiana Lust, the tiny town of Bon Temps had run amuck. Eric the Vampire proved himself quite the real estate wiz, buying Sookie's house, Vampire Bill found himself enough mercs to prove that Giants aren't the only ones with posses, a Wiccan stopped eating granola, satisfying herself with raising the dead, and Sam is involved in some sort of Prufrockian unrequited love mixed with shape changing. Yeah. Oh, and there's sex, lots of sex.


Battle of the Fang


Sometimes, we don't quite get True Blood. Portions border on porn [and More]-- which we like. And, there's lots of Louisiana-- which is nice. Maybe, it's the vampires that trip us up. We don't quite get the Battle of the Fang, either-- but we know it's for a good cause! Basically, Alexander Skarsgard (Bill Compton) and Stephen Moyer (Eric Northman) are doing battle to see who can raise more five dollar donations to charity. The Loser will have to wear a humiliating T-Shirt designed by the Winner.
