    Loves the season premiere last night. I can’t believe they turned Tara into a vamp. She hates vampires with a passion. Looks like an interesting season.

    Best episode EVER! Also, this is my favorite post on JJ ever!

    Texas Swede Says:

    It’s edgy, it’s bold, it’ steamy, it’s sexy, and it’s not your run of the mill drama. There is Eric, Sookie, Bill, Pam, Jason, Jessica, Tara, Laffayette, Hoyt, Andy, Holly, Sam, Luna, Terri, and Arlene. And even more. It’s True Blood.

    It’s good but it must regain focus. Some storylines must fade out and some must regain main focus or it is going to end soon. When you cut the main people the public tunes in to watch down to less than 20% of the airtime people are going to lose interest.

    Here’s hoping the rest of the season gives us at least one story to sink our teeth into and bite down. I want a good bite to chew not just a taste.

    Why cast Lucy? Says:

    Why? Did they have to cast Lucy griffiths of all actress’s ? she has as much talent as Kate bosworth

    Way to troll for responses with that last comment. LOL

    @Macy: At least it’s a different sort of trolling than saying she and AS are secretly dating. :)

    This show has seriously gone downhill. I’m pretty sure most people only watch it for the eye candy and sex scenes

    Anyone else think there’s a huge similarity (looks-wise) between Sam Merlot and Britney’s fiancee Jason Trawick? Just me?

    what's up Says:

    Hi everyone :) I was wondering what your thoughts were on what Eric said when he and is “sister” when they were….you know. Bill said something about they might here you in Louisiana and he said “what if he is right, do you think they can hear us?” Do you think that was a dug at Sookie? Anyway maybe I’m just over analyzing but I thought that was interesting

  33. 33
    ladybug Says:

    @what’s up:Bill was probably joking, but was also probably referring to the Authority, since they were supposed to be only about 60 miles north of New Orleans, which is where the Authority is apparently based.
    I don’t think Sookie was being invoked at all.

  34. 34
    what's up Says:

    @ladybug: Thanks. I guess I was over analyzing since I want Eric and Sookie to end up together. I’m just in denial that he doesn’t care about Sookie anymore

  35. 35
    ladybug Says:

    @what’s up: Don’t presume that either.
    But remember, Sookie rejected them both, and Eric’s a 1000 year old male vamp-so he’s going both going to back into vamp mode (humans really aren’t worth loving) and pretend that he doesn’t care. And he’s got a much longer history with Lucy than he does with Sookie. And he wasn’t expecting to see Lucy then, or to see her again after that evening, so rebound/goodbye sex.

    I’m not sure I see the family resemblance, but I’m intrigued by the casting:
