Yes we need a True Blood topic. This is it.

17th of May - Season 2 UK version is released, y'all.

For Zoe and Stackhousers everywhere (*giggles*)
Outatime
As per Zoe's suggestion of spoilering downloads and FX, could people say before the spoiler what speed they're going at? I'm watching on FX but I don't want to see downloaded spoilers, ta biggrin.gif
Serafina_Pekkala
Yep - this is good advice.

Channel 4 has done Series 1. FX is up to series 2 (New World In My View - is episode 10 of 12) I think. Download is all Season 2. Season 3 airs in US on 13th of June so I assume this will eventually be the download speed.

Maybe spoiler anything for Season 2 - I intend to get the DVD and watch it all.
Zoe
Yes, please spoiler anything not aired on terrestrial UK TV, which as Sefi says is up to the end of season one.

That towel picture is a bit rude sefi-kins, I can nearly see shaft.

Ooops - sorry. I'd put NSFW on it but I forgot!

I'm surprised we haven't seen any Shafthouse. He isn't exactly coy.


Zoe
I was going to check, but stopped just before typing 'Jason Stackhouse's cock' into Google at work.

Maybe I should start my own thread just for objectifying Vinnie from Home and Away and leave you all to talk about True Blood.
dandan
z-bird, here's the rest of your afternoon taken care of...



there's a bunch of them at http://andyswist.com/TrueBlood-dolls.html

also available in 'eric', with season one or season two hair...



err... there's no jessica doll... boo! but here she is, looking all lovely...



oh, and i also watched the un-aired pilot the other day - basically it's exactly the same, but with brook kerr playing the role of tara, but not as well...
Outatime
I can't believe the series is nearly over, I have to say I absolutely loved Jason being the god and smiting Sam, very much looking forward to the next two episodes.

Hello True Blood thread

I've been watching Season 2 - IT IS LE TITS. So far, up to the 8th or 9th ep. So much funnier, as Ipse said in t'other thread.

I wouldn't have thought they could make Jason Stackhouse even more awesome but they totally did. The bit when he returns to Bon Temps (as Outatime says) and impersonates a God (in a manner echoing both Princess Bride and Back to the Future) had me laughing like a drain.

Suckie is still a wee tit and Paquin gets a bit shit more times than should be allowed (i still don't like her face - and what's with the head tilting thing she does?) but it matters less now. Same with Bee-yul. In fact, they made a good joke about it around episode 7 - the bit in the church, when the Reverant Slightly Conan-OBrian says something like "you're what the fuss is about?".

Still so much else is going on - who cares about their lurrrrrve. Laughing at them both is more fun. Better stuff elsewhere too - Jessica, Hoyt, his Maw, the glorious Mary Ann, Terry, Arlene, Andy, Sam (still smuggling bananas in those bloody daft jeans) Tara, her mate who looks like Thierry Henry and Lafayette. Superb. And Erik - the best sexually ambigious hot blonde vampire since William the Bloody. You'd all go gay for Northman.

In fact, it reminded me of all the good things I love about Buffy. It nails that atmosphere of fun and silly and drama.

Bring on Season 3.
dandan
lovely, lovely eric...

When is this on telly? Have I missed it all?
Outatime
Channel 4 get it in September. FX has just finished showing season 2, no idea when they'll be showing season 3, I predict next January.
Atara
I've finally started to watch season two after having it on DVD for months. So far so ace

Best bits are funny/goof - like the Glee teacher tracksuit and the awful awful theatrical 'actking' - mainly telling Suckie he was *coughTOTALLYdyingCOUGH* and approaching the mad Christians at the church doorway doing his impression of "a man" was all funny. Like making Jason some kind of messianic hero - genius character move. The Stackman has to become a cop now. Has to.

Evan Rachel Wood is silly. I hope she doesn't come back. The 'centuries old vampire who acts and speaks like a spoilt Beverly Hills brat' is done to death. After Whedon, it got very boring quickly. They should go back to having Shakespearean actors in ruffly costumes. Helen McCrory as a vampire Queen would be far preferable to Marilyn Manson's child bride in a 30s dress.

September? Aw man... I may have to download. My dad didn't know I liked it so he's been deleting them off our Sky planner when I was away at uni so I'm missing a load of the first episodes from FX.

Thanks for the info.
dandan
anyone been watching the webisodes?

i have the first four (i think?) downloaded, but haven't gotten round to viewing them yet...
Outatime
Webisodes? How do they fit in?
dandan
post season two, tasters for season three...

yup, there have been four, each less than five minutes long...

Serafina_Pekkala
Not seen those. Will look.

For those who think there is NOT enough sex in True Blood - porn version. NSFW if you play video, fooles.

Season 3 previews here - some nudity. Good stuff. Very nice. You buy for me to come for biutful Raaashan ladies.

I was being Spam.

Seconded.

I finished the series, and now I think I have to get HBO so I don't have to wait for S3 to be out on DVD.

Very glad to see that wasn't Lafayette in Andy's car, and I surprised myself with how much I grew to like Jessica. I wanted to stake her myself at the end of S1, but now she's a favorite character. Too bad about her little sexual "predicament".

She really shone through. It could have been dreadful but it worked. Alan Ball knows what he is doing.

Huhuh

Anyway - I find the concept of stalking a vampire in TB to be rather refreshing (conceptually) because it is hugely disgusting as in Salem's Lot. Not just a neat pile of dust as in Buffy (which I never got to like really).

There is a lot of Salem's Lot in TB - which is why I like it. It's still one of my favourite vampire stories.
Zoe
There is a lot of Buffy in True Blood, it's heavily influenced I'd say.

You can see Whedon's mix of humour and melodrama, and there's loads of plot similarities, not least the blonde female protagonist with superpowers (the chosen one) who's going out with a tortured vampire who doesn't eat people anymore.

It's Buffy with sex and swearing, which is why I like it. Late-night Buffy.

Fo' shure. Suckie and Beeyul are the worst parts of Buffy and Angel's romance. They even have a hot blonde villain vampire to mix things up a bit. The Queen ERW was defo trying to be very Glory in her ways.

Season 2 reminded me of all the things I love/miss about Buffy. It was nice to have all that back again. With dirty bits and no high schoolers.
Serafina_Pekkala
New season 3 starts soon download fans - this Sunday. Do I hear an AMEN?


Some premiere pictures here - including serene Jessica (looking like a beautiful ginger Liv Tyler), slutty but happy looking Sook in a cheerleader dress made from IKEA bags, Bill and Eric in lawyer suits like they come from the set of Shark, the latter's toothpick of a girlfriend** posing for cameras as she always bloody does and many other treats.

(** I have chosen to modify TTOI quote about James Bond "you're the shittest Lois Lane ever - you're Kate fucking Bosworth")

That Gif made me snortle probably much more then it should have laugh.gif

Season 3 opener.

Marvellous stuff again, setting up many plot strands for the current season. Glad to see Jessica hasn't run off. The scenes of Eric in the buff and the Sam/Bill dream will have made lots of fans rather happy. I liked the slutty students, and Jason's inability to perform.

Snoop professes his love for a certain waitress

Mental.

My flatmate is so stupidly busy at the minute making ads with Mrs Rooney and prepping to Edinburgh that the series 2 finale has been sat unwatched for days

If she's not in tonight I am watching it without her.

HBO renew True Blood for a fourth season

My sister is getting me season 2 for my birthday. I needs me some Bon Temps fun.

You should do this.

Has S3 begun over there yet? We're two episodes in, so I don't want to talk about it if it hasn't.
Zoe
She was in tonight! It was good. Unusually structured in the best possible way.

No series 3 for the UK yet, but feel free to spoiler tag so you can discuss with the US fans/cheeky downloaders

P.S. Did I mention I LOVE Jason Stackhouse

"I love the smell of nail polish in the morning"
dandan
i'm sure it'll crop up before too long, so don't fret zozzabelle...

in other t'blood news, series four has been given the green light...

i still haven't had a sip of season three; think i'll wait until i can slurp up a few episodes in one go...

Same here. I wanna get a good run at it.

Zoe - the Stackhouse has his own unique journey in S2. You will love.
Zoe
I have seen all of Season Two, that is what I finished last night

I saw episodes 10 and 11 at the NFT no less.
Serafina_Pekkala
You work fast.

Like Jason.

Hurh.
Zoe
Not really. I was watching it on FX, then two episodes at the NFT (oddly) but have had to wait ages to see the finale I rented from Lovefilm (FX is no longer in my telly package). I say ages, Zoe II has been busy this week so I've had to wait about five WHOLE days.

P.S. I LOVE Jason Stackhouse
Serafina_Pekkala
I wonder what next season has in store for our Jason?

Am I moving away from Eric? Let's see if Season 3 is the deal breaker.
dandan
just watched the first two...

very good start. that is all.

except...

sexy nazi eric!!!
gulfcoast_highwayman
Shirtless cop Jason. Oh my.
Zoe
Is that why he's trending on twitter?

Thank God, I thought he might have died.
Serafina_Pekkala
Haha - yeah, I always wonder that. And they made Jason a cop? My wish came true.
dandan
i think this weekend will feature some 'true blood' action in the dandan household...

(watching, as opposed to anything more sinister)

oh, there will probably be a good dose of the new seasons of 'entourage' and 'man v food'... rock'n'roll...
Zoe
Man vs Food upsets me for three reasons

1) It's horrible to watch someone eating (and spitting out) such an excessive amount of food in a world where so many are starving
2) It's gross
3) It confuses me how he can eat so much and only be a bit fat, I can't imagine him exercising
dandan
1 - i have never seen him spit out food. although excess is never a good thing, i don't think the fact that people are starving has any bearing on anything. at least he is given the opportunity to eat the food and it is not simply stock-piled and left to go rotten to maintain a steady market value of what is actually released for sale, like what happens with some other food stuffs...

2 - there is some grossness involved, but there's also some quality yumminess thrown in for good measure...

3 - apparently he is practically a health freak / fitness fanatic in between shooting series of this and will exercise twice a day throughout filming, including hour long treadmill sessions...
Zoe
Really? I absolutely cannot imagine him exercising, but I knew he must (hence my confusion by his only slightly podgy face)

Maybe we should send deep fried sandwiches, with mac and cheese dressing, to Somalia
Serafina_Pekkala
Man vs Food sounds fucking foul (i've not seen it). And like Brooker, I wonder if Man Vs Poo would be the more titanic affair.

yep, he's an exerciserhollic... he's a bit of a sushi expert too and have heard talk of him sticking to a mainly health-freakish, almost vegan diet during his off-season...

i think the mass poisoning of somalia, by inflicting deep fried sarnies via the medium of the post, would be labelled as one of the biggest crimes against humanity the world has ever seen...
