Quick Thoughts on the True Blood Season 3 Premiere

on June 14, 2010 in Uncategorized

I’ve been as giddy as V-junkie for my fix of HBO’s vampire series, True Blood, and last night’s Season 3 premiere soothed the savage fangirl.

The series, loosely based on Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series of novels, and directed by Alan Ball, burst forth last night with everything I love about this show. (Minor Spoilers.)

“Conscience off! Dick on!”
“Hell hath no fury like a vampire queen broke!”
“I’m sorry you fell in love with a serial killer, all right. But honestly, who here hasn’t?”

Gratuitous Fan Service:
Naked Vampire Eric.
“See anything you like?”

Even MORE Gratuitous Fan Service:
Dream sequence with shirtless Vampire Bill and Sam Merlotte in which a shared shower is discussed. (HoYay!)
“We’re gonna have a nice time. I hear the water in Arkansas is… very hard.”

He’s nothing short of awesome.
“Do everybody a solid and instead of looking up at a God that let all this sh*t happen, you need to keep your eyes on your f*ckin’ daughter because she ain’t right to be alone.”

Her sarcasm is sublime. (And she’s a series regular now!)
”I don’t know what it is about me that makes people think I want to hear their problems. Maybe I smile too much. Maybe I wear too much pink. But please remember I can rip your throat out if I need to. And also know that I am not a hooker. That was a long, long time ago.”

A brilliant addition to the television series. (Harris has said she wishes she’d thought of her.)

And of course, gross-out gore, intrigue, over-the-topness, and melodrama. Plus, the promise of werewolves.

For your pleasure – Lafayette recaps the first 2 seasons in under 5 minutes.

    Okay, that almost makes me wish I hadn’t canceled HBO.

  2. Oh, the splurges we cut back on so that we can pay for school! Though if you haven’t already, you and Dale may want to talk to your CPA about what sorts of entertainment media qualifies as research/work/educational tax deductions.

    I cut Netflix so that I could justify HBO for the summer (it’s also on sale right now), specifically for True Blood 🙂

    Jason’s new mantra was hilarious. And I’m glad to see that Pam will be around more – a friend and I recently mused about how great The Eric and Pam Show would be. Especially given how annoying the series has made Sookie (shrill and overbearing in a way that I don’t think she really is in the books), I am thrilled at how entertaining the rest of the ensemble is. Especially Lafayette (love, love, love!).

    Now if only they’d do something about those TERRIBLE accents…
