There was no other subject line I could have used for this. Honestly. I really thought I’d seen as much gore, and be as shocked in season 1 or 2 of True Blood. With one of Eric’s hottest ‘looks’ (apart from nekkidness) to start off the day, I needed to just discuss True Blood so far. Am I alone in thinking this season has been more shock value then engrossing plot? (Pardon the near pun..)
As the rest of the post details some specific spoilers for season 3, click to read more.
But if it wasn’t Lorena and Bills’.. bed activities at the end of season 3 that horrified me, this past episode with Tara’s ‘doing what she had to do’ to be free of Franklin, really, really took the cake. A wedding cake sized cake. Shock value is great, and character wise – Tara needed to show a new level of desperation, a new level of fight to escape, now that she’d reconciled and moved on from Eggs’ death. But..
Having said that, I must admit so far, concerning plot development; its felt quite flat to me. Some stand out moments as always from Lafayette (and helllooooo Kevin Alejandro!) and of courseÂ Eric and Pam and new freakily hot werewolf Alcide, but the Bill and Sookie storyline has been lacklustre. Heck, even Jessica’s new found confidence in her vampy self has just been pushed to the backburner. Sam’s family issues? *yawn* And I looove Marshall Alman who will always be ‘LJ’ (Lincoln’s son from Prison Break) to me.
Am I alone? What do you think of True Blood seriesÂ 3 so far?
