“True Blood” Recap: “It’s Just a TV Show”

Picture 10

Why did I pick this post’s title you ask? Because it’s what my cousin’s wife and I kept saying during the first episode of “True Blood” season two: “It’s a TV show”. That explains why:

…Souke’s yellow bucket car is EXTRA shiny even though we’re in the muddy Bayou.

…her bruised eye looks like a mismash of bad eyeshadow.

…Lafeyette seems to have been in that dungeon for days without food, though if Ms. Janette just died during the night, and we found her body the same night, which is also the night that Lafeyette was kidnapped…he should’ve only been down there for like three hours. Why the crusty lips and starvation face? You’ve only missed dinner homie.

…the weird “social worker”/godess/animal whisper brunette who’s taking care of Tara ALWAYS has an “endless supply of tropical fruit” along with both Thanksgiving AND Christmas dinner perpetually in her dining room. Where’s all this perfect looking food coming from?

So what’d I think of the show? A few points:

-Why is Sookie still questioning Bill’s moves as a vampire, ie.turning the annoying teen into a vamp. Sookie, read this carefully: You’re dating a vampire, he’s going to do vampire things. Uncle Bartlett molested you, good riddance.

-“My ass is magnetic now” (c) imprisoned “Red Neck” = LOL

-What’s up with Frank Sabotka (c) “The Wire” being drunk all the time?

-I hate the gregarious wig of the girl offering her vagina to Jason in the bar, after he’s found the light of God. Ugh.

-What’s the deal with the black guy from “Desperate Housewives” trying to impregnate Tara? What’s the “social worker” want with their sexual relationship? (I think she had something to do with Ms. Janette’s death…)

-Bill’s “slatern” (?) slang, when he was trying to say”slut” but didn’t know the new-age terminology. LOL

-Bill saying to Sookie: “For all the ways that I have dismayed, aggrieved or failed you, I swear I will atone. I refuse to apologize for what you have awakened in me.” To me, this is wild romantic novel/telenovella. LOL. Is it just me?

-Erik getting his hair high-lighted with foil and a beauty shop smock. LOL.

-Jason sleeps with the televangelist’s wife.

-Vampire teen eating her sister and her dad, and it’s Sookie’s fault for driving her over to the house.

-Lafeyette doesn’t become a vampire. (this one is really more of a hope…)

What’d YOU think?
