LOL! *What the hell was that???
Two days after watching the last True Blood ep, and I still crack up every time I think about the Elder. What a weirdo! :D
And of course now I’m addicted to suddenly shouting out random “For or Against??” questions, pretty much the same way I was addicted to saying “Because drugs.”
The husband is not amused.
And it’s all the fault of that crazy old fairy.
In a show that’s pretty famous for its WTH moments (and characters) I think The Elder’s the funniest one yet. The overacting Authority kid comes a close second. Pity that neither got to stick around for very long.
What do you think? Feel free to share your faves from the season so far in the comments! :)
Was it just me, or was this week’s episode of True Blood funnier than usual? Maybe they were making up for last week’s ickiness. Or maybe not. Whatever the case, it cracked me up. Here are my top 3 LOL moments:
1. Pam being all amused that she turned Tara into the Tasmanian Devil
Okay actually even Tara zipping around and bouncing off walls was pretty funny, but Pam’s amusement (and did I see a bit of pride in there?) was much funnier. Because yes folks, it’s official — the Tarazmanian Devil is just as annoying undead as she was alive.
2. Reverend Newlin’s dancing
This was almost painful to watch. Super awkward. But in a funny way.
3. That Authority kid
OMG HE KILLED ME! Hahaha! Who the heck was that kid?? And what was with the pounding-fist-on-table overacting? I hope we find out his back story because I’m pretty sure he escaped from the House of Slytherin or something.
LOLs aside, it was a pretty good episode, and I’m looking forward to seeing more of the budding Bill & Eric bromance, among other things.
Til the next ep, Truebies. :)
I’ma big True Blood fan (mostly because of Eric), so I was really happy to watch it again last night — but I’d forgotten how weird and gross it can be. Here are my top 3 icky moments from the Season 5 premiere:
1. Eric and his sister going all Cersei and Jaime
Much as I hate to complain about any scene that calls for shirtless Eric, this was just…ew. It felt like True Blood got all jealous of Game of Thrones so they decided to throw in a sorta-sister with a British accent so they could have their own little bit of incestuous fun that everyone could gab about. Yuck.
2. Marcus’ mom snacking on her son
I’m sure that there’s some sort of werewolf rule somewhere that says you’re supposed to do this to get his power or so he can go to WereHeaven or whatever, but YUCK! You don’t cry over someone and then EAT HIM 5 seconds later!!! WHO DOES THAT??? Well, Marcus’ family apparently.
3. That friggin tooth on Sookie’s kitchen floor
I’m not sure what it says about me that I was more disturbed by that lone tooth than by the pool of Tara’s skull-blood in the previous ep —- but OMG that tooth really freaked me out! Maybe it’s a by-blow of my fear of dentists… I don’t know. whatever. GAH!
And that’s it for today. I’m still mourning over annoying Tara’s apparent NON-DEATH, so I need some time to recover.
Til the next ep, Truebies!
I read Deadlocked (the latest Sookie Stackhouse book) yesterday while down with a fever (not fun, generating EXTRA heat in the midst of summer, btw).
All I can say is… FAIL!!! NOT ENOUGH ERIC! FAIL!
Because we all know that the best thing about the SS series or True Blood is Eric Northman. In fact, if I had my way, I’d just rename the books AND the TV series to:
Because really.. who gives a flying fu.. err.. fairy feather about Sookie?
Now Eric on the other hand…
*swoon* True that, Eric..
Although Deadlocked is about solving the mystery of the girl who died on Eric’s lawn (among other things) — Eric is present in only about 20% of the book, which was a bit disappointing. Plus, the few times he does show up, he exhibits nothing of the awesomeness we’ve come to love and expect. (Well he did FLY once, but it was away from an argument - which is pretty lame.)
So I guess I’ll have to wait for June and the new season of True Blood to get my “Incredible Eric” fix. I can only hope that Alan Ball does not let me down the way Charlaine Harris did —-even if he does end up inventing ridonkulous story lines that have nothing whatsoever to do with the books. I’ll take my Eric fix however I can get it.
Having said that though, forgive me for sounding like an old fogie (ah crap… BBD attacks again. I AM an old fogie) when I say that I’m a little disturbed by the upsurge of vampire, werewolf and other supernatural heroes in recent years.
I mean, just look at all the fan furor over Twilight. Seriously? We had the world divided into teams over THIS???
Honestly, teens, tweens and uh ok, me…. Vampires are DEAD PEOPLE. Werewolves are SLOBBERY ANIMALS. So not sexy. And when you are in trouble, they will not swoop in out of nowhere to save you.
It was bad enough when romance novels in the pre-Vampiremania days gave girls unrealistic expectations.
It’s MUCH worse now.
So I worry. I really do.
Good luck, single guys.
