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.

CAN’T WAIT FOR NEXT WEEK!

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
