Also, someone said that Jason was going to become a fall guy. I can see it. Did you see how happy they were when he nearly killed Sarah when she played the vampire? They want revenge on whoever killed Steve's father.


That would also explain why they were playing capture the flag football style and were so happy with the athletic ability of Jason and the TE.

Sunday's episode wasn't that great compared to the first two. I was actually disappointed that they didn't make LaFayette a vampire. Guess it could still happen, with Eric stalking him and all. Plus, I really wanted Jason to bang the preacher's wife. She needs to be nekkid.

I like that new vampire chick. I liked it that she's learning to have emotion like her maker. I know people like to see nothing but evil and blood and all that stuff, but there is enough of that with that Eric dude and his buddies. Nice to see something on the good side a little.

I know nothing about the Books, so this is all new to me.

Since her and the monster showed up at the same time, I assumed they are one and the same. Since monsters are made and not born, like vampires, warewolves, childmolesters, ect.

I'm really loving this season. Jessica is a very very cool addition. I'm totally rooting for her whether she's "good" or "evil". And she's waaay hot.

Eric has me intrigued as well. I think he's going to play a big part this season, and not necessarily a bad guy part..

Eggs still has me confused. I have no idea what to think about him, but there's something strange up with him.

Maryann is going to start tearing shit up soon. I love the buildup they're doing with her.

KcMizzou

Big spoiler.... but I'm pretty sure I've figured out what Maryann is....

She's a Maenad.

In Greek mythology, Maenads were the female followers of Dionysus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dionysus), the most significant members of the Thiasus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thiasus), the retinue of Dionysus. Their name literally translates as "raving ones". Often the maenads were portrayed as inspired by him into a state of ecstatic frenzy, through a combination of dancing and drunken intoxication. In this state, they would lose all self control, begin shouting excitedly, engage in uncontrolled sexual behavior, and ritualistically hunt down and tear animals (and sometimes men and children) to pieces, devouring the raw flesh.

A maenad is a creature that requires offerings (or tributes) from other supernatural creatures who serve alcohol. If they’re not properly honored they tend to get angry and cause madness in people (supernatural and human) or even kill them.

Bacchus was the god of the grape, of course, so bars are very interesting to maenads. In fact, so interesting that they don’t like other creatures of darkness becoming involved. Maenads believe that the violence sparked by the consumption of alcohol belongs to them; that’s what they feed off, now that no one formally worships their god. And they are attracted to pride.”

Sam was obviously frightened by her, and giving her the money was a "tribute" to her. But she tells him that's not what she wants... so something else is going on there. I think she's affecting Sam a little bit already... He's getting moody. I think she may be slowly driving him mad. She feeds off the madness basically.

There were several pictures of maenads around Maryann's house. Including the huge one that Sookie and boytoy were looking at across the pool. If I remember correctly, it was this pic, which is Pan and a maenad...

I thought the first season was very good TV, not great.

This season has been fantastic so far and has the potential to be great.

I think Eric getting more screen time and the inclusion of Mary Ann has put it over the top.

As strange as it seems, I think the main character is my least favorite.

Not really strange at all, my fiance loves the show but can't stand sookie and bill.

Eric is becoming my favorite character. I think he's the kind that commands respect but doesn't abuse it. Like when he 'asked' Bill's permission to take Sookie to Dallas, when he could have just done it with/without it.

I'm more confused than ever about Eggs. Is he a good guy? He's so innocent...

Maryann is going to be a serious pain in the ass. She's getting more evil each episode.

WTF is up with Lafayette? What's his deal?

I'm not sure who's hotter.. Jessica or Mrs. Newlin. They both need to get naked already.

Bill is becoming more and more complex. There's a lot we don't know about him.

What happens when Sookie and Jason meet up in the church? I'm guessing Jason rescues her.? Whatever it is, it's gonna be complicated...

Jessica is an interesting character, in addition to her sassy bratty hotness. That actress is the shit.

Lafayette was locked up and tortured by vampires for nearly three weeks. I think that could damage the psyche a tad.

I think it's the best show on TV right now.

I find it incredibly unique. The little known actors and actresses were selected very well, and really make it work on screen. The writing is pretty darn good. Alan Ball created it, who worked on Six Feet Under. And it has the same fascination with death that Six Feet Under had. Just about all the different story lines keep me very interested, and they tie them together well. I'm a big fan of the paranormal and this show doesn't disappoint in that regard. And they throw in plenty of mythology along with the paranormal. Somehow it all just works. It's pretty intense, very gory at times, humorous, and erotic.

I highly recommend it.

When I first started watching it, and I saw the documentary and commentary on it, I thought it was going to simply be a vampire show. The first season was definitely focused on that, with the exception of Sam at the end. This season, it seems to be a free for all on all sorts of stuff. Normally, it would be too much, but it is all tied together nicely. All the story lines are intertwined.

Although he should have a somewhat larger role later on.

They've combined a couple of the books for this season, particularly with Sookie and her storyline. This thing going on with MaryAnn is a whole other arc that has nothing to do with the books. And with the author signing away creative rigths to the TV show, there is no telling where they will take the story.

I never read the book, so i dont really give a shit if they go away from the book. You see what people want to see and you write that into the tv show. Its about ratings, not about keeping true to a book. You give the people what they want. Now, not everyone is going to want that, but you just make a choice and you go with it.

Later on he becomes King of Texas, so my guess is, if they go that route in the series, Godric dies in the bombing.

Godric, aka Godfrey, was a very, very interesting character in the book. I don't recall him being Eric's master (although he may have been, I'm not sure). What he was was a "renouncer" a vampire who worked with the fellowship of the sun because he hated his own nature. He was going to meet the dawn because he was a child molestor and he couldn't stop. In fact, in the book, after Sookie was rescued, she went back to the FotS church to watch him die, and it was a poignant thing in the series.

Anyway, my guess is, they screwed up a little with that scene, and kept closer to the fundamental character from the book, although they did later have him say that "they treated me very well" or something along those lines...

But, anyway, originally, the character was an ally of the church. And I'm thinking that got blurred a little with the way they've written him in the show last night.

This is completely a tangent, but I didn't feel like starting a new thread. Have any of you watched Being Human on BBC America? It's a pretty interesting show, set up around a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost living in an apartment together, trying to fit into the human world.

It was intriguing when it first started last year, then I got bored with it. End of season one I didn't think was anywhere as good as anything in season 2. They've stepped it up a notch in Season 2. I can say I actually look forward to the show, even though I'm forced to watch it.

For me, the highlight of the show was definitely Andy. I dunno. It was just a weird episode for me, because it seemed like they were trying to be serious and make it a comedy at the same time and it didn't come out well in either way. The Jason Stackhouse thing, ALL of it at Merlotte's was just ridiculous. The Sookie/Maryanne thing was the only interesting part of it for me. But when Sookie and Bill were saying goodbye, I just cringed at all the acting. It was terribad.

I think it's the best show on TV right now.

I find it incredibly unique. The little known actors and actresses were selected very well, and really make it work on screen. The writing is pretty darn good. Alan Ball created it, who worked on Six Feet Under. And it has the same fascination with death that Six Feet Under had. Just about all the different story lines keep me very interested, and they tie them together well. I'm a big fan of the paranormal and this show doesn't disappoint in that regard. And they throw in plenty of mythology along with the paranormal. Somehow it all just works. It's pretty intense, very gory at times, humorous, and erotic.

I highly recommend it.

I can't decide if you're mocking us, or if you're really wondering. I think it is, but opinions differ. You wanna know? You should check it out sometime.

Thanks. The lady that plays MaryAnn is my most immediate neighbor. I caught her on "Lost" and on an episode or two of "In Treatment".

But I can't tell you how embarrassing it is not to know what she's doing, work-wise. I actually asked if she was working the other day, not knowing she's on "True Blood". Then I read an interview and found this thread.

I'll definitely check it out, if not for anything other than Alan Ball. Thanks!

Similar to X-Files being a pretty serious drama while still having that nerdy B-rate scifi humorous side now and then. I really appreciate a series that can be serious but still laugh at itself when needed. That campiness keeps things in check and allows them flexibility. The humor in Trueblood is downright awesome at times too.

I think they made a mistake on that whole storyline. The way it was in the book was a whole lot better. Originally, as I remember it, the storyline was that sookie was attacked by the maenad as a message to the vampires. It (Callisto) wanted tribute. The mystery to be be solved was the discovery that the first and only murder (lafayette, i understand why they changed that, he's a popular character) took place at a freaky town sex club and the body was moved to the parking lot. I'm not sure why they changed it, there was some great stuff, like Sookie infiltrating the club with Eric acting as her date. Dressed like Lafayette. LMAO

Although I'm guessing they changed it so they wouldn't lose so many people in the cast, albeit all minor characters. Everybody involved in the sex club except for Tara and Eggs were killed in the book.

I'm not sure why they changed it, there was some great stuff, like Sookie infiltrating the club with Eric acting as her date. Dressed like Lafayette. LMAO

Although I'm guessing they changed it so they wouldn't lose so many people in the cast, albeit all minor characters. Everybody involved in the sex club except for Tara and Eggs were killed in the book.

Meh, I think it is better if they do not go off the books like they have been and change things up with the characters.. Keeps literally everyone guessing that has/hasnot read the books..

It was a weak way to kill her though, I wanted a more drawn out battle.. And more nudity..

I like Sam - so I thought it was pretty cool that he stabbed her with his horns and she thought he was a god. Then before she weathered away she saw Sam appear. Priceless.

I thought the finale did what it was supposed to....leave you hanging for next season. Although, I'll admit last year's was better.

Next season, we'll have the Bill disappearance, the Floyd/Jessica thing, Andy's cover up for Jason, Tara dealing with Eggs' death, finding out just what Sookie is, why the Queen is selling her blood, etc.

I also hated the whole Marianne story line, and I was glad to see her go, grand exit or not. Sam has tasted Bill's blood, so now Bill will be able to sense when Sam's in trouble as well.

Anyone able to recap the last few minutes? Apparently the 'pain go bye-bye juice' was taking effect towards the end, as I cannot recall what all went on. But if the recap sounds familiar I won't have to rerecord it and watch the end.

Last I recall was the Sam the Bull/trojan horse kill the Maenad gambit ol' Vampaar Be-ull worked up. Oh and the aftermath being mostly Sam forlornly eying Bambi's moms.

Eggs attacked Andy. Jason shot and killed Eggs. Andy took the gun and told Jason to get lost. Tara freaked out.

Hoyt went to make up with Jessica. While Jessica started feeding on random truckers.

Sam went to his adopted parents in search of his real parents.

Bill rented out an entire restaurant and proposed to Sookie. Sookie freaked out, ran to the bathroom, and when she game back, ready to say yes, Bill was gone, apparently taken.

I'm hoping for more Eric this season, and to learn more about that whole structure. One of my favorite story lines so far has been Godric. I wish more had come from that, but I guess it's best they didn't beat it first.

I think that's been the problem for me, too. There are so many sub-plots on the show that it keeps you interested. You see the overview, and you can choose characters you like and want to follow. In the book, you're stuck in the head of a love struck blond. A whiny one at that.

Tara was hardly mentioned in the first book (if at all). I think she's a cousin? I'm only on book two, but haven't read on it for a while. Season two kind of kept up with the book, but took Marianne's role way to the extreme. She's hardly mentioned in the second book.

LOS ANGELES — True Blood (http://content.usatoday.com/topics/topic/Culture/Television/Programming/True+Blood) is getting new blood.

Werewolves, to be exact, will join the peculiar world of vampires, shape-shifters and mind readers who spice up the third-season HBO (http://content.usatoday.com/topics/topic/Organizations/Companies/Publishers,+Media,+Music/HBO) drama, returning June 13 (9 ET/PT).

"It's just another element added to the supernatural craziness of it all," says Anna Paquin (http://content.usatoday.com/topics/topic/People/Celebrities/Actors,+Agents/Anna+Paquin), who plays the telepathic Sookie Stackhouse. "There's no way you can ever get bored on a show like this. When you think you've seen it all and done it all, something weirder and wilder comes out of the woodwork."


CALENDAR: Check out TV offerings this summer (http://www.usatoday.com/life/television/news/summer-2010-tv-calendar.htm)

Weirder and wilder should provide an infusion of Oh! positive for an avid fan base that more than doubled during Blood's second season to 5 million viewers for each episode's first broadcast. Adding in replay, DVR and on-demand viewing, Blood ranks second only to The Sopranos (http://content.usatoday.com/topics/topic/The+Sopranos) among HBO series in total viewership.


The thirst for Blood may be unquenchable. Fan site true-blood.net reports more than four times as many visitors in the past 30 days as in the corresponding period in 2009.

Why do fans respond so strongly? "Part of us yearns for the muck of the primal," says series creator and executive producer Alan Ball (http://content.usatoday.com/topics/topic/People/Athletes/NFL/Alan+Ball). "We still have part of us that feels in awe of nature and all of the stuff that is bigger and scarier than us. ... I think True Blood has evolved into a show that can feed that desire, that incorporates fear, terror, sex and transcendent behavior in a way that's really entertaining and funny at the same time."

And over-the-top bloody, of course.

The series roughly follows the popular Sookie Stackhouse novels of Charlaine Harris (http://content.usatoday.com/topics/topic/People/Celebrities/Authors/Charlaine+Harris), which focus on the mind reader and her relationships with vampire boyfriend Bill Compton and other folks (human and otherwise) in rural Bon Temps, La.

The new season, which introduces werewolves, more shape-shifters and the byzantine world of vampire politics, corresponds to the third novel, Club Dead.

"This is classic, escapist fun," says Stephen Moyer (http://content.usatoday.com/topics/topic/People/Celebrities/Actors,+Agents/Stephen+Moyer), who co-stars as the 173-year-old Bill. "You can read it on so many levels. It can be an hour of escapist drama. You also can watch it for comedy, suspense, as a thriller, as a horror. It's an audacious show."

Picking up the threads
When we left them, Bill had disappeared, apparently via kidnapping, after proposing to Sookie; shape-shifter Sam Merlotte (http://content.usatoday.com/topics/topic/People/Celebrities/Authors/Charlaine+Harris) (Sam Trammell), owner of the bar where Sookie works, had embarked on a search for his real family; and Sookie's BFF Tara (Rutina Wesley) was grieving over the death of her boyfriend.

Bill's disappearance "is not really the way every romantic dream proposal goes. The girl bursts into tears, runs to the bathroom, comes back to say yes, and the dude is gone," says Paquin. "That's going to be a pretty major plotline for Sookie."

As Season 3 begins, Sookie will go in search of Bill, aided by handsome werewolf Alcide Herveaux (Joe Manganiello), who's assigned to the task by vampire sheriff Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard). Despite that arrangement, vampires and werewolves (who have been at each other's throats in the Twilight and Underworld movie series) are not the best of super-friends.

"Eric hates them," says Skarsgard, covered with white makeup and accents of blood red during a break on the show's L.A. set. "In his opinion, werewolves are very primitive, stupid, disgusting, not sophisticated. After a while, you'll find out there's a deeper reason he hates them."
At the same time, the actors were delighted with real wolves on the set. "They're extraordinary creatures," says Moyer, also sporting vampiric pallor. "They never stop moving. They're enormous and powerful. That's been the highlight so far — of the things I'm allowed to talk about."
Another main story will be Sam's search for his biological family. The shape-shifter may get more than he wishes for. "They're an itinerant, very poor and sketchy family. He finds out who these people are and why they've given him up. ... It's sort of like a Pandora's box, that he thinks he can go and meet them and then leave. But he can't put the top back on the box," says Trammell.

Tara and Sookie's brother Jason (Ryan Kwanten (http://content.usatoday.com/topics/topic/Ryan+Kwanten)), who shot Tara's boyfriend, will each be dealing with the fallout from his death. Viewers also will meet a new royal bloodsucker, Russell Edgington (Dennis O'Hare), the vampire king of Mississippi, and learn more about a vampire hierarchy that also includes Sophie-Anne (Evan Rachel Wood (http://content.usatoday.com/topics/topic/People/Celebrities/Actors,+Agents/Evan+Rachel+Wood)), the vampire queen of Louisiana.

If there's a Season 3 theme, it's identity, Ball says. "Each character is coming to terms with who or what they are. We're finding out what makes them tick and what they're willing to do and not willing to do, and what they're willing to fight for and not willing to fight for," he says.
As is apparent, the True Blood world keeps growing, which Ball says partly reflects Harris' novels.

"It's bigger, or at least it feels that way," says Deborah Ann Woll, who plays the coming-of-age vampire Jessica. "Half the faces around the table reads (of scripts) are new people. I don't know what (their story lines) look like, what their sets look like or what their costumes look like. It feels like five TV shows are going on at the same time."

Cast enjoys the ride
If Blood is fun for viewers, plots drenched with blood and sex seem to make it the same for those in the show. "The material is endlessly entertaining," Paquin says. "It's about as much fun as you could expect to have and still technically call it a job."

There aren't many places where actors can test drive their own coffins, as Kristin Bauer van Straten does while preparing for a scene. "If I'm not out in 30 minutes, start looking for a key," says Bauer van Straten as she crawls into the sleek, white pod in the office just off of the Fangtasia bar. She doesn't need a key; the futuristic container comes with an internal escape button. "I like the phone call that starts with: 'We need you to come in for your coffin fitting.' Isn't that something?"

Moyer enjoys the writing, which keeps the characters off balance. "We're having to react to what's happening around us, rather than us seeking out the drama. The drama is happening to all of our characters. It feels very visceral and strong and muscular because of it."
Ball is having a good time, too.

"It is so much fun. If you had told me I would be doing a vampire show with werewolves and would be having more fun than I'd had in my life, I would have said, 'You're high,' " says Ball, who created Six Feet Under (http://content.usatoday.com/topics/topic/Six+Feet+Under) for HBO and won a screenwriting Oscar for American Beauty (http://content.usatoday.com/topics/topic/American+Beauty).

For all the wildness, Blood wouldn't work unless it found a way to keep the characters grounded, Ball says. "We might as well have a sign in the writers' room that says, 'It's the emotions, stupid.' We try to make sure the characters' emotional lives are what's driving the story. Otherwise, it's set pieces and special effects. We have such good actors that they can play the romance, the yearning, the weaknesses, the upsets, the disappointments and the triumphs."

Lure of immortality
As Blood blossoms as a pop-culture phenomenon, Melissa Lowery, who owns true-blood.net with Elizabeth Henderson, credits the rich combination of Ball's take on Harris' novels. "The show is so character-driven, it's transcended the 'supernatural/fantasy' label to become a captivating experience for mainstream audiences. Whether it's watching Sookie navigate her first real romance, Jason finding stability in chaos or discovering that vampires are humans, too, there is at least one character everyone can relate to."

Skarsgard has his own theory on Blood's appeal. (The hunky Scandinavian actor is part of the fever: John Folden, who operates the true-blood.tv fan site, says one of every four messages posted there relates to Skarsgard.)

"It's about vampires, and they represent immortality. I think people are attracted to that. Their age and knowledge and level of experience is very attractive, and you're drawn to that," says Skarsgard, whose Eric is 1,000 years old. "But they're also animals, and they can turn on you like that and kill you in a second."

Would Paquin be interested in a season for each of Harris' 10 novels? "I'd do it until they pull the plug," she says. "I don't know how long everyone's going to want to watch us running around biting each other and having all the sex and blood, but I think we'll do this until they tell us we have to stop. It's a dream job."

I was going to say something about the horrible acting, bad plot lines, completely improbable situations (even for a vampire show) and the continued propagation of this extremely stupid "genre" that is vampire shows/movies based on horribly executed "novels," but you could include naked vampire chicks in with that I guess. Anything to pull in the beer and nacho crowd I guess.

Hey nimrod. If you don't like it, then don't watch it. Even those of us with "simple minds" can figure that out.

It's a chick show. I get that.

Women in todays society are basically deprived of romance, passion and adventure. (Blame Gloria Steinem I guess.) The Anne Rice version of vampires, which has been utilized, bastardized and over-emphasized over the past two decades, appeals to these notions (or lack thereof of these notions) as they are romanticized in such shows as True Blood, Twilight and the like. The fictitious portrayal of the potential for undying love through a modern medium allows the third party recipient a chance to achieve a certain, acceptable level of stimulation and satisfaction of the "I" (ego) without having to worry about the real life ramifications on the "uber I" or super ego (if you buy into the basic concepts of Freudism).

And I get the campyness of the show. However, I do think that it goes overboard and it doesn't have the same level of control and refinement of other HBO produced series with regards to production values, directorial oversight or acting subtleties.

From what I heard, it nearly didn't make it in terms of getting past the first couple of episodes, as it had the lowest initial viewers of any HBO original series. However, I think that the wider ranging social issues (as mentioned above), the popularity of the genre and the "low-brow" approach used in the acting and directing of the show appealed to a broader general viewing audience than what was initially anticipated. Once the "tabloid" publications and internets blogosphere picked up on that, the proverbial ball was rolling.

Aren't we all?

Romance is as fleeting and lasting as a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day.
