True Blood Season 5: Authority Always Wins Promo VIDEO & Screencaps:
True Blood Season 5: Weeks Ahead Trailer (VIDEO):
Take a sneak peek of what's ahead on the new season of "True Blood." And make sure to catch a new episode every Sunday night at 9 only on HBO.
In TRUE BLOOD episode 2, it looks like Tara who has been made vampire at Lafayette's request, woke up very hungry and has set her sights on Sookie for her first post-turning meal. Assuming that since both Lafayette and Pam are on the scene that Sookie will not in fact get her throat ripped out by her life-long best friend. But will Tara every be anything like the tara of old again? It took Bill about 150 years to finally start acting civilized; I can't imagine Tara getting her act together so fast.
So< what did you think of the TRUE BLOOD season 5 debut?
It's LATE so I'm for now gonna break it down to what I liked and disliked:
LIKED: I was surprised that I enjoyed the Jason and Steve Newlin scenes. I think I may like the vampire version of Steve Newlin. He seems much more fun. Sample:
"I think that that's why I started acting the way that I did—all murderous and whatnot."
"I finally have the strength to say, I'm a gay vampire American."
LIKED: Anything Pam. Sample:
"I am wearing a Walmart sweat suit for you all. If that's not demonstration of team spirit, I don't know what is."
LIKED: Jessica and Steve Newlin: They have more scenes in episode 2 which look to be really fun.
MEH: Nora and Eric banging away in the storage container. It was obvious that they lusted after one another but in this life and death situation? Really?
And yeah we get it, Eric is so. over. Sookie.
MEH: Sam and Luna: They just don't do it for me.
Andy and Holly in bed and the introduction of her teenage misfits.
Terry and Patrick and the PTSD story rearing it's ugly head. NO.
Alcide and his pack. NO. In the words of Lafayette (to Alcide):
"We're done with all the supernatural bulls--t. You heard me? No vampires, no witches, no ghosts, no maenads. And no motherf--cking werewolves."
Really, Alan Ball, I am so over almost all of the 'supernatural bullshit.' Tara turned vampire is fine. Bill and Eric's most excellent adventure is too. Sookie and Lafayette doin' what they do--groovy--and I'm pretty certain that bringing Russell Edgington back will be worth it. The Jason-Steve Newlin-Jessica triangle looks yummy. And sure yeah, give us some Vampire Authority. But that's enough!
The wolf pack story never worked and still wont. It's only a shade better than the 'Hot Shot' story that blessedly got dropped like a hot potato at the beginning of season 4.
Sam and Luna just don't have chemistry. And the CG on the wolves is so poor. Let's just stop.
And please, just NO to the Terry and why he has PTSD story.
