Is anyone else watching this? This week we had a nice gratuitous shirt off scene for Erik and Bill and one of the best insults I've ever heard..

Yeah, she had twins about 5 mins after they finished filming the season shock

In the finale, she is mostly shown from the waist up, but the pink dress she's wearing at the start is obviously a maternity one, however hard they tried to get a good angle...!

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 10-Dec-12 22:57:36

Oh. Didn't know she was preg

I think the wait will be longer than usual as Anna Paquin was pregnant earlier this year, putting back filming.

Good lord, do we have to wait a frigging year?! Noooooooo!

When's it back on?

IdaBlankenship Tue 04-Dec-12 14:49:51

I can't watch it until Friday as DH is away! Damn it I shall have to stay away from this thread for fear of spoilers. Glad it was a good one though.

OMG how mazing was that last episode.. I cannot wait a year to watch it

"Lillith puts some damn clothes on although Alcide could take his shirt off again"

Much as Lillith is starting to annoy me I will tolerate it as long as Alcide takes his shirt off again - for a show which has more than its share of nudity he is the one who makes me stop and go "oh my" every time grin

Series finale this week! Things that I hope happen:
-Bill snaps out his religious thing quick smart (or is revealed to be faking it & being a double crosser)
-Erik finds some way of getting ghost Godric back
-Sookie saves herself without the aid of any vamps
-Jess & Jason to get back together
-Lillith puts some damn clothes on although Alcide could take his shirt off again (as long as it was integral to the plot of course)

Ive really enjoyed this season, apart from the Terry fire storyline there havent been any bits where I have been "just get on with it"

I was a bit confused by Bill's complete change of personality but when they said about "nest behaviour" I remembered that that was mentioned in one of the earlier seasons.

Totally loving Lafayette this season, love it when he is all glammed up in his silk and make up with that mouth on him - makes me laugh so much. Glad Tara has her sass back and the relationship with Pam is brilliant. As for Russel, so funny. I love its black humour, it so works for me.

I am feeling a bit meh about the series so far. I have enjoyed Tara and Pam's new dynamic.

11/12 on tomorrow; I hope it heats up.

I love the opening credits, how it shows the contrast with the very religious deep south and the rednecks practically having sex in the bar. The song goes with it perfectly. <sings "I wanna do bad things to you"> Always gets my foot tapping. I also love American Horror Story credits.

I can't wait for the new season. I watched all of this season months ago and I was shock at the last episode.

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 24-Nov-12 17:32:02

love the opening scenes of true blood and music, same with amercian horror

IdaBlankenship Wed 21-Nov-12 16:01:13

Jason holds a special place in my heart, I like him & Jessica together. Lafayettes lines have been funnier this season than for ages - he kind of tailed off for a few seasons and lost his sassiness (sp?).
I totally agree about the opening credits and theme tune, something that Homeland should have thought about with their awful credits - I always Sky+ so I can fast forward, but not with True Blood. The Sopranos ones used to be good too.

Piggychunk Wed 21-Nov-12 14:45:28

Jason's one liners are the best , he by far makes me laugh the most , however lafayette gets some corkers too.

I will forever watch the show I think its quite addictive and will forever have the best theme tune

IdaBlankenship Wed 21-Nov-12 09:39:32

This has dropped off my Threads I'm On - bah!
I have to admit its not so much Must See TV anymore - although I shall stick with it because it does have one or two classic lines per episode. DH & I still tell each other to F* the F* off you c*ting tw*t regularly. That and everytime the FX warning comes on saying "This show contains scenes of a sexual nature" we both automatically go "wahey!"

BoulevardOfBrokenSleep Tue 20-Nov-12 21:59:27

True Blood has veered way off from the books. The themes of seasons 1-4 (Maenad, Russell, witches etc) were broadly similar but the characters are different (eg Lafayette got killed in book 1 IIRC) and the plot details too.
Plus I don't think there is any Authority in the books above the state kings and queens, so this season is completely random.
Reading the books doesn't help any, despite what DH claims when I'm the only one who can remember last week's plot!

I like to think of it as the Rocky Horror version of Eastenders...!

It's drifting a bit I think!

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 19-Nov-12 16:06:07

have to say im not enjoying tb so much this series, too much change and think they have run out of ideas, though obv follow the books that i dont read

Piggychunk Wed 14-Nov-12 16:30:50

Not sure if you know this but just saw this and very excitied about the new character smile

Oh, even better, the HBO website has a video recap: http://www.hbo.com/true-blood/index.html#/true-blood/episodes/5/55-in-the-beginning/index.html

BoulevardOfBrokenSleep Tue 13-Nov-12 22:16:39

I started to try and summarise the episode and had to go and check online so might as well just point you at that => this is probably the most coherent one I found

Or this one

Neither mentions that the Authority ask Bill & Eric to join them, and Eric says 'Never, you bible banging cunts' which is a lovely moment grin. Although they basically then say, never mind that you are totally opposed to our religion and goals, come along and pretend you're on our side anyway. confused

Still, it kind of defeats the True Blood purpose to query the plot too closely!

Can someone please get me up to speed on episode 7 (last weeks) clashed on the bloody planner.
The last episode i saw was with sookie in the fairy club, and russell killing that guy in HQ
TIA smile

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 05-Nov-12 11:20:57

Godrick - he was lovely. So sad when he died sad

And yes a bit of waxing wouldn't have gone amiss - far too much lady garden

And Eric is so much cuter with short hair !!!

Elsqueak Fri 02-Nov-12 21:58:16

Oo, good point, Ida!
