EDIT: Tonight!!!

Looking at the promo:

It seems like Pam will have a much bigger part? Which is good...

Bill won't be kidnapped for long? Which is bad...

There will be werewolves & snakes (???Shift changers???)? Which is old hat...

Jessica will be spreading her limbs? Which is thoughtful :thumb up:

Vikings are so gay.

That just looks like a wolf to me. Maybe a new shifter? The Werewolves better be huge hulking monsters of death and destruction. And they better rip vampires to shreds. At least one must fight crime.

A bit slow out of the gates, due to the fact that they chose to pick up immediately after the end of Season 2, so we had to go with a lot of transition stuff.

Jason was the highlight of the show again...poor kid...if you can't get it up for a three-way, you are totally screwed up in the head.

20 minutes in, and I'm wanting someone to bitchslap Tara into next week. I'm hoping the whole plot line of her hooking up with a vampire makes a difference to her, because she's getting more and more obnoxious.

Looks like the Queen vampire is going to be problems for Eric, as it turns out she's peddling V because she's a spoiled bitch who wants to stay rich and continue spending money like she's in Congress.

And it's only one episode, but it looks like there is a chance that Bill may be getting his macho back on, and won't be such a whiny wuss this year.

Note for CDT...I saw a behind the scenes bit with Alan Ball, and he's chosen to go with real wolves for the werewolves, and not get bogged down with obvious CGI.

I agree w/ Mitch that it was a bit slow out of the gate with the transitions stuff. Still looking forward to the rest of the season.

See...that would be the werewolves of "Twilight".

Where you also have vampires that glitter like gold when in sunlight, rather than looking like Michael Jackson filming a Pepsi commercial.

I will say that in watching that brief special...those are some DAMN big real life wolves they are using in the series. Suckas look like a cross between a German Shepherd and a small pony.

I enjoyed the episode, it was fun to be back in the south again. I liked Tara in season one, now she is just whiny and annoying. Bring back the conflicted hothead she used to be. Her Mom can go away at this point, she served her purpose of the "how Tara became effed up" backstory.

Jessica rocks. I hope they "ahem" show more of her but I like her new bumbling vampire character; sort of like when spiderman first got his powers.

Estonain dancers also were a nice add. :cheers:

So Mitch any chance we will get True Blood or Mad Men recaps now that 24 is done (thank god)?

I also liked the episode. The werewolves better be powerful or there ain't no point to having them.

I think the Magister already knows about the Queen and Eric.

I'm really interested to see where the Sam angle goes, the gay dream he had was odd to say the least, but I assume that's from Bill's blood.

Jason is one of the greatest characters ever. He's like a non-animated Patrick from Spongebob.

Agree on both accounts..

Not sure if its the actress or the storyline but Tara is dragging this whole show down. Quicker she is gone, the better. Give more time to Pam. She is a good character and I find her attractive.

Going to be interesting to see how Eric and the Queen deal with the V trafficking and a possible war with werewolves. A lot to juggle and in the end I bet someone pays with their life.

And it gives us something to do until Mad Men starts on July 25 and Dexter in September.

Also, as much as I hate Tara, I'm hoping it gets more interesting once she starts getting involved with a vampire this year (James Frain, who was Audrey's ex-husband in "24" and was also Thomas Cromwell in "The Tudors").

Yeah it's one of those shows you really don't brag about watching. I gave some of my friends who laughed at the show the first 2 seasons and now they're hooked.

FTR, when did watching Vampires become synonymous with being a chick? I blame that goddamn Interview With A Vampire...

Everyone give up on this already?

Pretty bland ep IMO...

Already sick of the Sam/family, Andy/Jason stories, but at least the Tara angle got better with the introduction of James Frain who should be a heck of an addition to the show...

My biggest question, why did Bill have all those files of Sookie in his house?

I thought it was a much better episode...but I'll agree that I'm not that much into Sam and his white trash family.

I'm curious about those Sookie files as well. It does look very much like Bill might have been sent to make contact with Sookie, although he probably didn't plan on falling for her.

This whole bit with the King of Mississippi looks to be good. And as was mentioned in the EW recap, Bill has already been 100 times more interesting this season than he was ALL of last season.

James Frain is excellent. I did read that he was supposed to be a "vampire detective", so we'll see where he goes with that.

Jason/Andy? Bleh. But that chick he found near the meth lab is supposed to play a role this year...no idea what, though.

And Jessica becomes more and more endearing to me each week. Too bad her character is supposed to be 16...I'd have no problem with some major nude scenes with her. :nanner:

I've really liked the start to this season. Like the drama between the Mississippi and Louisiana vamps with Bill in the middle. Like the werewolf angle. Like Jessica being featured a little more with Pam as her mentor. Jason Stackhouse and Lafayette are such great characters. And I love the way southerners say "Sookie".

And the whole Eric/Bill thing is gonna get awesome.

I don't know...I'm seeing lots of opportunities for some people on the show.

Sookie is going to go through some major adjustments. The sooner the better, because it's a pain watching her when she's in her whinny mode.

Eric is going to get the best chance to really break out this year. That whole fantasy thing with Sookie being HIS fantasy was a shocker. And now he's got to find a way to save Pam from the Magister.

Lafayette's got some great options this year as well, as does Jessica.

OTOH, you're right when it comes to Tara, Jason, and Sam. Not into Tara as The Victim again; Jason blackmailing Andy to become a cop, or the whole White Trash Family thing with Sam.

But it's early, so I'll hang in there.

And wait for Mad Men to start on the 25th. Gives me something else to watch at 10 PM, because frankly, I keep trying to get into "Hung", but I just don't like it. And "Entourage" is off to a very slow start (granted, it's just been two episodes, but they weren't that good).

I hate Entourage at this point.

I literally still watch it out of habit and then am angry at myself afterward.

And Hung is terrible.

True Blood is a guilty pleasure show, if you start looking too deeply into it you're watching for the wrong reasons. It had a semi-rough transition due to it's up to the minute time-line between seasons but has been laying groundwork for more of the same this season. Also, having caught some spoilers there are some interesting turns coming w/ a few of the characters.

That said, once you accomplish 360 degree head turning vampire sex, what is really left?

Although at this stage in the game True Blood has more Emmy nominations this year then The Wire got during its duration.

This has now gotten interesting.

Loved the Viking flashback with Eric. Looks like he finally figured out who murdered his father, mother, and baby brother. This is not going to turn out well at the end for the King of Mississippi. I think Eric will be the leader in deposing him...but he's going to have to make a deal with Bill to do so.

Sookie manages to re-create her super hand zapping power on Cooter. The King is impressed.

Franklin is one majorly phucked up vampire. So does he really turn Tara? I thought I read once where Lafayette may end up getting turned, so this would be a shock.

What's the deal with Sam's sperm donor daddy and his rage against the little brother? I'm hoping this means that this storyline may start to finally get interesting.

No idea about Jason's new banging partner Crystal. Hopefully something more interesting that the story line of Jason being a deputy.

I'm starting to understand my love/hate for this season now...

Whenever the story takes place in Bon Temps, it sucks...ex: Sam's family, Jason being a cop/new girlfriend, Lafayette/"Geezus", Arlene pregnancy & wasting all screen time with Jessica who was one of my fave characters last season...

Yet I've enjoyed all the stories away from BT...

BTW, Franklin might be the best character yet and Joe Lee, the scariest

I am loving this season. Absolutely loving it. Last night was superb. At least three shield your eyes moments ... including the freakin mace to the head by Tara, which was one of the greatest things I've ever seen on television.

Best season of any show IMO ... since the one season of The Wire where they focused on the young kids. Ending is setting up to be off the charts good. :thumb up:

Yeah, that was damn intense...as was the scene with Tara chewing her some FranklinFlesh.

Then we had the whole torture scene with Bill, which was pretty gross.

Looks like Wabo had it pegged, and white trash loser Joe Lee is using Tommy in dog fights. The worst part was that it looks like he also used Mamma that way once upon a time.

I'm wondering if the previews were from the next few weeks or just the next show. Looks like they are moving quickly on Eric getting his revenge on Russell, if that was all from next week. If so, then we'll be having a big switch in plot lines...maybe focusing on whatever "powers" Sookie has, as well as the mystery/supernatural abiliities of Jason's object of affection (not sure why he's hung up on her...she does absolutely nothing for me...just not into heroin chic).

Whew, just glad he wasn't role-playing Mr Sheep Herder with em...

What I learned this week:

-Jason still wears his varsity jacket
-Tara's 'tude is back
-Vampire's heads can be "Billy Batts" and still live on
-Deities & drugs don't mix
-Talbot likes a clean house
-Evan Rachel Wood is smokin!

Watching those previews possibly told me that Sookie's blood will let vamps move around in the daylight?

Rob, Franklin survives that macing to the head? I must have missed him in the previews for next week's episode.

And that's my guess too, that Sookie's blood allows the vamps to move around in daylight.

And yes, Evan Rachel Wood is hot.

End of this season should be spectacular. Also, I could see this show running 7-8 seasons without getting old.

Still a Guilty Pleasure Show in my eyes, but a somewhat fun one.

That said, HBO may finally be bringing it again drama wise for the first time since The Wire w/ Boardwalk Empire this fall. Just looks awesome.

I just get more and more jacked up every time I see a new trailer for Boardwalk Empire. Steve Buscemi looks to be awesome as the Gangster-in-Chief.

Luck has a ton of potential as well, good to see HBO may finally be trying to catch back up to AMC. No excuse to do what they have done post Wire.

Sookie will use her "other power" on Lorena and she'll blow her out of the slave house into the daylight killing her. Or Alceed will save her. I didn't watch the previews btw.

Franklin can't be dead, that crazy junkie is too weird to die.

Oh and wtf is this goofy Jason and the mysterious woman angle?

They show the back of head (I believe talking to Tara?) in the previews...

I agree with Mitch that the previews must be for the rest of the season...No way all THAT chit is for next week??? Can it???

Like I said earlier, really like the stories going on away from BT this season, but a it seems like a few characters they don't know what to do with right now...Kinda reminds me of the old, great Twin Peaks of the early 90s

Not really a fan of this season as the storylines could use some work. This says it better than I can:
Can anything save this dog-fighting plotline?
The Sam Merlotte story has been slow and tedious for a few episodes now, so the revelation that his parents are pimping out his shape-shifting brother as a battling pit bull at least ends the long tease. But isn't dog fighting a little, well, 2007? I wonder if this drama will help explain what's really going on with the minor and mysteriously unexplored rivalry between high school quarterbacks. After twisting his throwing arm against a car, Jason tells the new star that he doesn't like him and is going to figure out why. Might he be the next Michael Vick? Could the former Falcon make a cameo as a shape-shifter? We can dream.

What we learned this week.

Sookie's blood can make it so vampires can survive the daylight.

One step closer to them telling us "what Sookie is" (known to anyone who knows of the vastly inferior books).

Franklin is definitely not dead, since his head wasn't totally removed. You can tell that Tara knows, after the "oh, shit!" look she gave when Sookie told her what dead vampires looked like (spewing gooey blood everywhere).

Russell has just set himself up to be dethroned after the murder of the magister. Eric and Sophie-Anne will make sure of that.

Lorena will not be missed.

Neither will Cooter. But his crazy assed white trash wolf girlfriend is going to be fun to watch as she tries to get her revenge on Alcide.

From the previews and the hints given out, Bill is personna non grata with Sookie now. Does she get closer to Eric? Is that a good idea now that he knows of her secret?

The dogfighting plot line keeps getting less and less interesting.

As does Jason/Crystal.

Fast forward on a DVR is good...got to skip over most of the Sam and Jason plot lines to get to the good stuff (I went back later to make sure I didn't miss anything. I didn't).
