Can Ya Feel It?

Sure you can.

It’s that special, electric feeling in the air that can only mean that a new season of True Blood starts this Sunday.

I really can’t believe that I got as into this show as I did. After the first episode premiered 2 years ago, I wrote about how i thought that the show blew donkey chunks. I really was disappointed with it, since I usually love writer Alan Ball’s TV work.

For some reason, however, I decided to give it just one more episode. And while I didn’t particularly care for ep 2 either, it ended on an interesting cliff-hanger which made me want to tune in the next week to see how it was going to be resolved.

So tune in I did. And I’ve never left.

The show just got better and better during that first season. Then last year, for Season 2, the show went into hyperdrive with all kinds of awesomeness.

So, here I sit, panting in sweaty anticipation of Season 3. From what I’ve seen, they are really kicking up the action this year, as well as considerably expanding the cast. We’ll also get to see some werewolves moving in to Sookie’s neck of the woods this year.

Werewolves? Oh my!

I think I just gave myself a case of the vapors……..

he does the yoga donchaknow?

I loved LOVED the crazy christain sideline story. AWESOME!!


then THEN Bill turning from a bull to a human with his arm through the hippy chick.


GAWDDAMN!! good stuff!!


Mrs. Hall said...

I meant SAM not Bill.

but whatever!

Slyde said...

yeah, sam really saved the day last season.

Mrs. Hall said...

yeah. he seems to be coming into his own in this series versus just pinning away for sookie.

still not liking either Sookie or Bill but it is interesting the the creator made Bill such a dork. Vampires are suppose to be all sauve and whatnot. Like Eric. they are both such dorks. it's growing on me.

I enjoy Tara. And her exorcism. That's good stuff.

Lafayette is the bees knees. I would go gay only for him.

and again, if Jason Stackhouse could please remove his shirt one more time....

You guys are having your own TB Orgy up there.

I don't like the Sci-Fi stuff but I feel this way when the new season of Dexter gets close. So I won't make fun. :)

Slyde said...

I originally HATE layfayette, but he has quickly become my favorite character.

Tara is a close 2nd.

the only character who still grates on me most episodes is Andy Belfloure...

i am the diva said...

mmmmtrue bloooood....

i loved lafayette from the beginning. Still hate Tara, but sometimes i see that she's just really a "hard" character. It was nice to see a little smiling and tenderness in season two.

Now, what i'm waiting for is Uber Hotness Eric.... he could feed on me.

Mrs. Hall said...

@Vinomom: don't knock it till you try it!

@Slyde: Yeah, andy is a character that well, just draws pity for me. this is no good, feeling pity for characters. :(

@Diva: SERIOUSLY! TARA! yeah, at first I'm all like, jeez who ever wrote this enjoy stereotypes because girlfriend has no depth or meaning. THEN she had to have the exorcism. Changed the whole ballgame!

and yes.

Eric. yummers!

(OK slyde, I'll step off now... this is your blog! sorry for getting all chatty!!)

sybil law said...

Um, so I should start watching this show?

Cocaine Princess said...

You must read my post- I blogged about True Blood.

Heff said...

Me and Donna watch it for the fucking nudity.

Verdant Earl said...

I forgot what I was gonna say because Heff made me laugh. :)

I don't know why, but neither Season 1 or Season 2 are available on Netflix. I think Season 2 will be available later this month per the one-month deal with Warner Bros, but I have no idea why Season 1 isn't available. Weird.

The Invisible Seductress said...

Can I come watch with you????

Slyde said...

vino: oh, im with ya there. Dexter is one of my fav shows as well.

diva: eric completely cracks me up. i think hes an outstanding actor. He's also almost HALF as hot as me.

holly: feel free to take over anytime.. im lazy!

sybil: yes, you do. you really do.

cocaine: im heading there now.

heff: the nudity is just the icing on the cake. They DO grow them chicks nice down south though, dont they?

Slyde said...

earl: im very suprised that it isnt available. i never checked but everything ive ever checked, even the most obscure shit, is always on netflix.

invisible: you can come over anytime. The only rule is that i watch tv naked. you still game?

Jill said...

I don't really know anything about TV, but that's not unusual right? For a show to have just a little promise at the beginning and then get better and better?

Funny category name for this post!

The Invisible Seductress said...

Even more now...wink blush

Chris H said...

Am I the only person who hasn't seen it at all???

Verdant Earl said... was a one-day glitch with the True Blood titles not being available. They are back up today.

badgerdaddy said...

I was just discussing with my wife how much you love Ball's.

Heff said...

How'd you enjoy the FUCKING 20 MINUTES OF PROMO before the damn show even started ?

Hell, I went to burn a mule, and the promos where still showing when I flushed that gobstopper.

Dr Zibbs said...

I just started watching it and need to rent the first 2 seasons now.

meleah rebeccah said...

I missed this show last year, but I am definitely going to check it out this season!

Brown said...

I think there is a recurring theme with your t.v. viewing...It appears that whenever you hate the first're destined to end up loving it.

Nej said...

I've read the books...but the show is fun to watch because (besides season 1), they really aren't following the books that closely. Every once and a while, the two things connect back up, and it's fun when it does. I was worried reading the books would ruin watching the show...but have been pleasantly surprised!!!!

Have you watched all the "Drops of True Blood"? The little 3 minute mini episodes??

Bruce Johnson said...

I have a rule: If it contains Dinosaurs or Vampires, I don't watch it. Big Lizards and Smoldering blood suckers are best left on the playground, not discussed at the bar with the adults.
