True Blood, Season Four

I wanted to give it a chance before passing judgment on the new season.  I felt that waiting until after the second episode would suffice.  Moreover, I purposefully have not read the corresponding book – All Together Dead – because I want to accept the shows creative license before seeing how it is suppose to play out. (As much as I love the books, I’m glad Lafayette is still around on the show!)

I must confess, the first eight minutes of the new season, in the land of the “fae”, it seemed very quirky and a tad on the ‘jump the shark’ side.  Having said that, it helped to explain the one year jump in time.

And with that jump, it offers a world of opportunity to explain many things, like just how did Bill Compton become the King of Louisiana.  Which they answered in tonight’s episode.

The wicken/witches/whatever, still has to grow on me.  I’m sure Bill knew what would happen once Eric walked into their layer.  But now it’s getting interesting.


Some great quotes from tonight:

“Did I miss something? Are we girls now? Did we join a book club and read some queer chick-lit memoir so now we’re bonded together by estrogen or sisterhood or some other feminist drivel?”
– Pam to Sookie

“I’ll bet you my shotgun, to your no arms & legs, you’re the one about to get fucked here!”
– Felton to Jason

“Let these good people practice their Constitutional right to be fucking idiots.”
– Pam to Jessica, of the protesters outside Fangtasia

“Why do you smell so good?”
– Eric to Sookie
