Before the Re-Cap/Review, let’s talk about six seasons of a roller coaster ride, up and down.  The first two seasons had a small focus, mainly the town of Bon Temps, Louisiana, and the show worked. In season 3 there was an additional supernatural creature, the werewolf, and the show split its time between Bon Temps […]

If you want to read an in-depth review of the final episode of True Blood, check out the AV Club’s insightful dismantling of the shows conventions or io9’s cheerful recounting of the climactic deaths. True Blood is not a show that I spend enough of my brain on to be able to really comment on […]

“You Just Killed My Fairy Godmother”
  Rachael Nisenkier

… and the True Blood gifts just keep giving! I gotta say, I am really enjoying the play out with the Eric amnesia thing, mainly the almost sadistically innocent way that Alexander Skarsgaard grins out Eric’s nigh-constant “sorry”s to Sookie.

As the slightly villainous and oh so devious Pam, Bauer steals every seen she’s in. While most of this past season’s True Blood love was directed toward Alexander Skarsgard’s Eric (and rightly […]

After waiting weeks for the finale of True Blood, I found myself having to wait a few more days in eager anticipation of the finale. What keep me waiting? Honestly, I had other priorities such as the Big Brother finale, the season premiere of Gossip Girl, and the series premiere of Vampire Diaries (okay that […]

My Take on True Blood
  Rachael Nisenkier

I think I’m in love with this season of True Blood. I’ve mostly let Tim take over reviewing duties, because I’ve been crazy busy and watching it on a crappy site, and because Tim does a kick ass job recapping and highlighting what has been so awesome about this season of True Blood, but don’t […]
