    He was pretty, but I wish I'd quit watching before she started singing. Dead bodies isn't art or amusing. She is just too bizarre.

    I'm not a fan of hers at all, but it was her most tolerable video (and not just because of Alexander). Dude looked hot but should have been nakeder.

    Great episode. Now, I assume that was Sophie-Anne at the end? Are they making her Bill's maker instead of whoever she was in book 3? That will be interesting.

    Eric's line *what's in it for me?* was classic Eric as I read him in the books.

    That's not Sophie-Anne, that was Lorena, Bill's maker.

    I find not much is happening in each episode/that the stories are not really advancing very much. I suppose it's because Alan Ball is working towards weaving together three story lines. Once these all intersect I suspect the pace will pick up. Right now, however, there's only a little bit that gets done in each story line.

    I hope the pace picks up soon, though because it's getting a bit dull, to be honest...

    I'm right there with you! It's glacially slow for an hour long show with no commercials! (OK - more like 55 minutes. But still that's a good deal more storytelling time than the 41 minutes the networks get each week for their "hour" long shows)

    4 episodes have gone by and:

    Bill and Sookie are still having sex and arguing about Jessica. After 4 episodes the only thing that has changed is that they're in Dallas having sex and arguing about Jessica.

    Jason has not progressed much beyond spending several episodes in some kind of mental foreplay with the church leader's wife, and constantly being surprised by his progress.

    Tara is in the same cycle of "I like these people/I'm suspicious of these people" since Episode 1.

    La Fayette languished in the basement and has progressed as far as mopily returning to Merlotte's.

    Daphne is a shape-shifter. Next!

    Was it really necessary for us to see Bill mulling three different times about what Godric means to Eric? I don't read the books and I picked up on it the first time it was mentioned.

    Don't even get me started on the redundancy of Mary Ann.

    I think it's moving a bit slow as well, but I'm still enjoying the show plenty. I guess the fact that Eric is freakin gorgeous helps

    Evan Rachel Wood is playing Sophie-Anne, so it is definitely not her at the end!

    I actually thought the pace improved in this episode. Episode 3 annoyed me, but this one added: (1) Barry the bellboy; (2) the conflict among the Dallas vamps; (3) Sookie's plan to infiltrate the Fellowship of the Sun; (4) Jason actually cheating with the reverend's wife and finding out about the arsenal at the FotS; and (5) Daphne being revealed as a shape-shifter (though why hasn't Sam asked about the scars on her back?). I also really liked learning Eric's origin.

    I am annoyed with the Tara storyline and am concerned that it will continue at a glacial pace.

    Are we supposed to know what Maryann is at this point? Why all the s-e-x whenever she's around?

    My gratitude to anyone who can help this first-time watcher and new fan....

    Dear the Makers of True Blood,

    Please hurry up and get to the Eric/Sookie storyline. Or an Eric/anyone storyline. The bottom line is: more Eric please.

    Love,

    Yes. She's a maenad and she gets off on chaos and people's excesses.

    I think this is where people who have not read the books lose out. We who have read them can fill in plot holes. Mary Ann isn't really all that important in the book. AB has chosen to make her storyline (and Tara's by default) considerably larger than the books.

    The internal troubles of the Texas vamps is important in the book in regards to what happens later. They're bringing Bill's maker in early. She doesn't appear until Book 3 and in fact is the motivation for the trip to Tennessee.

    It is going slowly, but Alan Ball has said the entire 2nd season takes place in 2 weeks, so it's understandable. I kind of like that they're basically showing all the details.

    LOVED the Eric viking flashback scene. In an interview Alexander Skarsgard said that was his most fun scene to shoot because it was entirely in Swedish and some of his friends got to be in it with him. His line of 'wherever I am, there will always be women' was classic! Plus we got to see his legs this time! Slowly they're pleasing fans of his...

    I loved Jessica and Hoyt's chaste relationship, especially compared to all the sex of Sookie/Bill and the base running of Jason/Sarah. Her cuteness of just wanting to hear him read his comic book to her was awesome.

    Sookie/Bill were kind of boring. They were just sex/let me protect you/I'm a woman/sex/don't die/waitress/sex/be careful. Basically, the usual.

    I didn't mind the FOTS scenes this week - they progressed a bit. Now, are Steve/Sarah really fighting or in it together to hook her up with Jason or mess with his mind... And I love how Jason showed some moral character in attempting to shoot her down. He's growing up! Plus he helped Luke out, which I don't know if old Jason would have done.

    Yes, it was Lorena at the end. That explains how she could hear the Bill/Sookie sex even though the room is double soundproofed. The preview for next week shows more of Lorena.

    IMO much better than last week. Keep em' coming!

    One of them was Swedish, the other was about as Swedish as Pam. I was pretty glad it was subtitled, because I honestly couldn't even make out what Skarsgård said, let alone the non-Swedish viking. The pint sized Dane was surprisingly hot though!

    I also loved the Jessica/Hoyt phone call. Jessica annoyed the hell out of me at the end of s1, but she's really growing on me.

    Haha love your mention of Pam. I read an interview with Alexander where he said she sounds like a Russian prostitute when she tries to speak Swedish. (and of course he was asked to elaborate on how he knew what a Russian prostitue sounded like... that in Swedish TV/Movies the villain is regularly a Russian prostitute)

    It was just so sexy to hear him doing a lot of speaking in his native language... He can dress like a viking and talk to me any time!

    I'm kind of surprised they haven't moved his name up in the opening credits with the 5 main actors (Anna/Sookie, Stephen/Bill, Sam/Sam, Ryan/Jason and Rutina/Tara). I would think that he and Nelsan Ellis (Lafayette) are 'main' actors on the show so should be listed before the alphabetical listing of the minor characters. Heck, even Deborah (Jessica) should be listed before the alphabeticals too. Especially since they are all featured in every episode this season.

    But then again, they don't even have Kristen Bauer (Pam) in the opening credits yet, so what do I know.

    I've been reading/watching interviews with the cast online from their current time at Comic Con (well, mostly things with Alexander) and there have been some interesting tidbits...

    Non-blatant spoilery stuff:
    - Alexander confirmed that he does gat naked this season, saying that they tested him with a 'sock' and 'tiny nude underwear' for his nude time, saying he preferred and felt more comfortable being actually naked
    - The show still hasn't been picked up for a 3rd season, though all signs point to 'yes' (I mean, it's HBO's 3rd highest rated series EVER, after Sopranos and Sex and the City, so they'd be dumb not to)

    Spoilery stuff:
