    Love thei opening credits and think their soundtrack is genius

    Tonight's episode had a lot of great dialogue. Lafayette's speech during questioning to the vampires -- "a Jew at an Al Qaeda pep rally" -- was sheer genius. I like the idea of making him into a Vamp. He can perform a lot of roles in the books.
    I missed that line! I'll have to re-watch (what a hard life) the ep soon.

    Alexander Skarsgaard is nummy. I'd like to see Eric get all kinds of action this season and be naked. A lot.

    Sookie is not a vampire. She is just a telepath who is drawn to Vampires becasue she can't read their minds (and she loves Bill of course). She and Bill have shared blood but she has not been drained. She does experience side effects when she drinks his blood (heightened senses and sex drive, heals faster, etc) but they last for just a period. Bill drinks from her regularly during sex, but I believe she has just has his blood once, and that was after she was beaten to a pulp for having saved his life.
    That is what I wanted to know. Thanks...

    I was annoyed last night for the first time that they didn't follow the storyline from the books! I wasn't impressed by the healing of Sookie scene! I'm clearly messed up in the mind, but I much prefer the book's licking scene than the burning and picking through Sookie's skin while she screams and vomits scene that the schow did. Any thought on last night's episode?

    I haven't read the books yet so maybe I see it in a different perspective. I really enjoyed the episode. I'm finally starting to feel sorry for Jessica and the way Bill isn't really guiding her. I was glad to see Jessica and Hoyt "hook up".

    Favorite quote - "This is so embarrassing, I'd die if I wasn't already dead." - Jessica, when her fangs popped out unintentionally.

    I just watched last night's episode. I Think it was the best of the season so far Loved Jessica and Hoyt getting together. That was so sweet, and I'm interested to see what is up with Daphne, and the people going nuts at Maryanne's.

    I enjoyed it and thought it went by too fast. I liked the healing scenes and thought they were really well done. My favourite line was Eric's "they were great pumps."

    Spoilery speculations

    Spoiler



    Love Jessica and Hoyt. Actually, just love Jessica now.

    And will they just get the Jason/Sarah hookup scene over with already? Enough with the entendres "Sarah doesn't just whip her pudding out for anyone..."

    I want Jason back to being the "himbo" he was last season.

    Season 2: 3rd episode, and Jason still has his clothes on.

    Well, he was at least shirtless when he was in bed...

    Though I haven't watched True Blood as much as I'd like to, I have enjoyed watching the film crews run around the streets of my town with their cameras. The first season was pretty funny because they'd have their camera equipment on the back of a flat bed trailer and our police officers were having to hold up traffic while they flew around filming some of the scenes. I actually thought they were going to lose their camera equipment one evening when they turned on a curve of one of the small streets located downtown.

    One evening when I got off work, I got to watch the crew filming some scenes just around the corner from where I work across the street from the courthouse, but I couldn't go inside to watch the filming. They also used the exterior for what used to be a confederate hospital in Mansfield for Bill's mansion. They also did a lot of filming in Shreveport. It was pretty exciting and it was the second time they used my town for filming. The first time was with the production of The Great Debaters.

    Anyway, I want to share a pdf file I found that gives some history about the mansions and other locations used for the filming of True Blood throughout Louisiana.

    Question - Was that Daphne standing by the tree sucking down the bottle of red wine as Tara went into the house wrapped in a white towel after she got out of the hot tub? I've watched it 3 times and still don't know if it's really her. And if it is, what is she doing at Maryann's?

    I don't think it was, and I think it was just a random girl drinking some red wine actually. Daphne has been seen at the restaurant during the daytime, hasn't she? I think that shot was just to show the black cloudiness in the eyes. But I could be wrong.

    Just caught up with this week's episode. I'm trying to pretend I haven't read the books so I'm not going, wtf is that? I'm just waiting for some Eric hotness next season.

    rfisher, I read somewhere an interview with Alexander Skarsgard (Eric) where he said something like 'we'll get to see more sides of Eric this season, including his naked side.' I'm hoping that wasn't just a tease, cause I'm hoping for it!

    And I love that the show doesn't completely follow the books - it leaves something unknown for the readers and keeps cliffhangers going with us too. Genius!

    ETA no new episode this week. Next new one is on July 12. Here's the preview for the next episode

    They better not try to hook Eric up with Lafayette. Lafayette can hook up with Eggs if he's looking for a hot new man.

    Spoilery... info from books and an interview

    Spoiler



    In any case, I'll take my naked/semi-naked/sexual Eric any way I can get him. And if it happens to be in a way that brings the sassiness back to Lafayette, then I won't complain about that either.

    Yes, but my fantasy needs to picture Eric with me. Sookie is closer to me than Lafayette.

    Somewhere out there I read that Alan Ball is saying that some spoilers on the web are incorrect (shocker, I know). Maybe this is the case with the supposed upcoming

    Spoiler

    However, given this particular spoiler is supposed to have originated with the actor that plays Lafayette, I have my doubts that it is an untrue one.

    I am not opposed to

    Spoiler

    per se on tv nor do I particularly mind Alan Ball's deviations from the books. In this particular case, however, I am just not happy. It strays too far from the main thread running through all the books: the eventual

    Spoiler

    . However, in Club Dead (book 3 I think)

    Spoiler

    so there is precedent, I guess. Still, in the books, Eric is almost relentlessly

    Spoiler



    I feel like such a geek knowing this much detail about such a cheezy series... oh well, summer fluff, I guess

    Yes. And in the books it was acknowledged that Eric was made by a male vamp but the focus was on he and Sookie. All that was off screen as it were. It would completely change the dynamics of the relationship for it to be on screen. IIRC, the incident in MS was not sexual. The King of MS is homosexual but has a human consort. Now, I'm going to have to reread that book. It was one of my favorites. I'm still we're not going to have Bubba.
