Truly Conflicted

Embracing the hotness!

Embracing the hotness!

So I have been able to watch True Blood thanks to the awesomeness that is the beloved internet and I’ve seen all 3 episodes that have aired.  And I’m not sure how I feel about it this time out.  I’m happy about some things (Eric’s hair!!!!) but not happy about others (Jason’s being in this church thing is severely limiting his naked time.  Limiting Jason’s naked time is never a wise move).  So I thought I’d do a post discussing what I’m liking and what I’m not.

I’ll be honest, I got pissed at the last episode.  I mean really pissed.  Bill wouldn’t let Eric give Sookie blood after the attack.  This is COMPLETELY opposite of what happens in the books and I’m going to be pissed if Eric and Sookie do not form their blood bond.  I know, there are many opportunities ahead for him to give her blood but that just irritated the hell out of me.  Thankfully the hotness that is Eric and his increased air time kept me from being overwrought by my rage, but still, wasn’t happy.

My other fave, I hope he's back to normal soon.

As you know, I am quite thrilled that Lafayette is still alive.  I am a bit worried with his reaction when he got home yesterday, it was understandable but I hope that his light is not extinguished.  He was definitely my favorite character next year and I need to see him being flirty and over the top or I will be sad.

More...always more shirtless Jason.  Or naked Jason.  Sexy Jason, not church Jason!

Jason in the church…I get it, I really do.  It was a way to tie a main character into the church to bring it into the season, but really, I said it before, we need nakedness.  I do appreciate the gratuitous shirtless scenes of course but Jason without sex just doesn’t feel like Jason.  I was momentarily frightened that they were going to have him hook up with Molly Burnett of Days of Our Lives fame but other than a few sexy looks, that didn’t come to pass.  I do get the vibe that maybe he and Mrs. Preacher are going to get it on eventually, but we’ll see.  I’d rather have my favorite manwhore back though.

She's growing on me...but she's still annoying much of the time.

Jessica has completely grown on me to the point that I get mad when she’s brought down by Bill and Sookie.  I was cheering her Hoyt hook up and mad that Bill broke that up before she could get some action.  I’m glad she didn’t kill Hoyt though, I admit I was worried about that somewhat.  The whining of the character can be a bit annoying but I prefer her to a lot of the characters right now.

Who doesn't want to start their day with some fresh Eggs? HEHE

Speaking of characters I DO NOT prefer, what the hell is this Mary Ann stuff?  I’m not remotely interested in her power of chaos or whatever it is.  I don’t care about her at all.  I don’t like how Sam’s pretty much a sideline in the story and I hope they get her gone soon.  Doesn’t help that she brings out the worst in Tara, who I loved at one time.  Bonus points for bringing the hot Eggs into our world though.

I still find Bill bland and boring.  He’s like a dad raining on everyone’s parade when it comes to both Sookie and Jessica.  I truly hope the next season happens as it does in the books, I could use a Bill break already.

Yes, I wanted to include another picture of him.  Problem with that?

Finally, we must talk about the perfection that is Eric.  I was not a fan of that hair and was surprised to find the actor so much hotter than the character.  It seems the producers listened to something and they let Eric get a hair cut.  Sooooo much better.  So lovely!  So sexy.  And they’re doing a GREAT job of showing some Eric’s darker side and some of his fun side as well.  I want more of the fun in his interaction with Sookie, hopefully that will come soon.  Oh, and I want him dressing a little better, but that’s my sole Eric complaint now.  Bring out the hotness even more peeps.

So that’s about it for where I am when it comes to True Blood.  I don’t overly care for the storylines right now but maybe things will ramp up in Dallas and I’ll get more into it.
