True Blood

Episode: “Everything is Broken” (Season 3, Episode 9) Synopsis: Eric is confronted about the death of the Magister by Vampire League of America figurehead Nan Flanagan and the mysterious Vampire Authority comes into play. In Bon Temps, Sookie and Bill reconnect while Sam snaps under the pressures surrounding him and hands out an ass beating. Jason does something awesome. Review: Two in a row! This was another great episode of True Blood, definitely in the top three of the third season. Once again there is increased focus on Eric and the episode is better for it. Talbot’s death last episode was still a sticky residue on the ground, at least until Russell goes all creepy, scoops the goo into a crystal bowl and carries it around, talking to it. Dating someone for something like 3,000 years will do that to you.

True Blood: Anna Paquin

Episode: “Night on the Sun” (Season 3, Episode 8) Synopsis: Sookie reevaluates her relationship with Bill while Jason takes the next step forward with Crystal. King Russell makes a move on Sookie while Alcide is away and Eric plays two gambits with bloody results. Review: Finally! A fantastic episode. While season 3 has been good, it was far from great in my opinion, until tonight. Sure the werewolves are still pussies (I have to say that every review, contractually) but there was a lot going on this week that was very engaging.

Coroner

If you were Andrew Paquin and your sister, along with her husband, were currently starring in one of the most popular and sexy shows currently on television, what would you do? If “write a script and get them to guest in it so that a studio could put their faces prominently on the box art” then you should get a drink with him. Because you think alike. So perhaps that is a bit harsh. I mean, really, who wouldn’t take advantage of something like that? Regardless, Open House is a thriller currently available on DVD that stars Brian Geraghty and Tricia Helfer as a pair of sadistic squatters with a thirst for blood. Not thirsting for blood this go around is Stephen Moyer, who guests stars along with his wife, Anna Paquin, who is in the film for a few minutes.

Episode: “Hitting the Ground” (Season 3, Episode 7) Synopsis: Sookie manages to free Bill, who remains at death’s door. Meanwhile, Sam confronts the Mickens’ over their dog fighting activities while Eric and the King of Mississippi advance on their goals. Review: This episode was 50/50 for me. I really dug the subplots of Sam, Jason, and Eric, who got pretty decent screen time, but I wasn’t a fan at all of the Sookie stuff, though it reveals, presumably, something about who or what she really is.

Boiling Point

I’m a big fan of survival. I figure not matter how bad life is, it’s always at least a step better than being dead. As such, my self-preservation instinct is very high. While I’m not risk averse or danger shy, if I’m faced with a life or death situation, I’m choosing life and doing whatever it takes to come out on top. I naturally assume that most people are like that. Living is pretty awesome. Why then, when faced with death do characters insist on opening their mouths? Many times in movies if you just keep your trap shut you’ll either slip by unnoticed or be allowed to leave. Not keeping your mouth shut is idiotic.

True Blood: 9 Crimes

Episode: “I Got a Right to Sing the Blues” (Season 3, Episode 6) Synopsis: Tara attempts to mount a rescue of Sookie and Bill when all are being held at the King of Louisiana’s residence. Meanwhile, Eric and the King head off to ‘negotiate’ with the Queen of Mississippi while Sam finds out disturbing news about his families income source. Review: If you’d thought that True Blood was lacking in blood so far, then tonight was for you. With dead vampires, torture, skull cave-ins, and plenty of the red stuff soaking into the floors, this was possibly the bloodiest episode of the entire series. But does all that blood mean it’s good?

True Blood: 9 Crimes

Episode: “Trouble” (Season 3, Episode 5) Synopsis: Multiple storylines careen towards each other as the psychotic vampire detective Franklin brings Tara to the Vampire King of Mississippi, which brings Tara and Bill face to face. If that weren’t enough, Sookie’s search takes pause when the Mississippi vampires decide to look for her, instead.

True Blood: 9 Crimes

Episode: “9 Crimes” (Season 3, Episode 4) Synopsis: Bill reaches out to Sookie in an unexpected way while she continues her search with the aide of the werewolf Alcide.  In Bon Temps, Andy is promoted to Sheriff, causing a jealous and misguided Jason to demand a job on the police force. Things with Eric go south when the Magistrate shows up at Fangtasia on the trail of some vampire blood peddlers. Review: The first really great episode of the third season has arrived.  Yes, the last two were good, but felt rushed and awkward for the most part.  With things settled down considerably, we get more meat and less teasing throughout all the storylines.

Charlaine Harris who? You may not think you know her, but if it wasn’t for Charlaine Harris and her creation of Sookie Stackhouse, we wouldn’t have HBO’s True Blood. Charlaine sat down with us at Dragon*Con in Atlanta, Georgia this past weekend to answer a few questions that we were dying to know.
