Gay men are not a demographic different from any others and aren't any easier to fool. I'm not going to drool and prance all over a show just because it shows a lot of hot guys asses and penises. This show has become a complete joke full of sex scenes and horrible special effect sequences that make absolutely no sense (the Warlow plot was just awful. Awful, as well as the whole 'peace' group/ Emma subplot).
I like shows that have intelligence, substance, and are exciting and that make me think and want to know what happens next. Breaking Bad, Madmen, Downton Abbey, Homeland, Game of Thrones, and Dexter (to name a few) have all done that for me. Sure, hot guys strutting their penises and asses around is a nice touch, but I don't need it to be a 'fan', nor do 99% of gay guys.
True Blood has turned into soft core (and uninteresting) porn drenched in blood. I hope the writers look back into Seasons 1-3 and study what made the show so good (and it had a lot of less sex and cheesy special effects back then). Otherwise, its pretty clear why this show's ratings continue to tumble. Has anyone heard season 7 may be the last?
PS - believe I tried starting a Dexter thread---- came on deaf ears unfortunately. This is one of the unpopular forums on the site so I'm not too surprised.

^wow, how sad.
So you don't like True Blood, people didn't care when you started a Dexter thread, you don't like JUB.
Why are you here? Serious question. Why are you on JUB at all if you hate the rest of us so much? More particularly, why come to a True Blood thread just to say "your show sucks"? Seems...well, kind of childish, to be honest. Why would you take the trouble to come and tell a bunch of fans of the show that it's no good? Are you really that desperate for attention?

Don't worry. Me criticizing this show won't have any effect on your enjoyment of it or anything..... don't see why you seemed so threatened? Oh well. There are plenty of people on this thread that have offered criticism and that's what this merged True Blood thread is for.... criticizing and praising the show and not attacking each other for feeling different, yeah? If I was desperate for attention I'm very much winning because you're giving it to me, but I'm clearly done arguing with you because my points have been made. I feel like I offered legitimate criticism of the show beyond 'this show sucks now' so get over my different opinion than you and move on with your life.
Everyone is coming back, Pam & Eric, the producer already stated so. I think Pam will be the one to save Eric and this is how they are going to "bond" and become family again. I think Pam will have to help Eric heal because he will be burned. I think she will someone pull him under the snow or something and they will be stuck under the snow somehow, at least until night and then she can get him home or someone with just the two of them.

*They should have kept and involved Rutger Hauer's character rather than just literally 'toss' him off. He was the BEST character the series has introduced in a while and he could have continued to bring forth much tension between Sookie and Warlow, making the audience continue to question Warlow's intentions with her.
*I agree that Warlow's 180 in the season finale was a disaster. I began to warm up to him and then all of a sudden (literally) we get slapped in the face with a new villain that gets killed off 10 minutes later. Disappointing.
*I loved the story arc of episode 9 with the vamps escaping from human captivity. But the parallel storyline of Terry's funeral was not only boring but the most bizarre use of two storylines in one episode that I've ever seen in any TV series.
*By killing Warlow the writers wasted a great opportunity for next season..... Vampires being able to survive in the day!!! Wouldn't that have brought great new levels of depth to the humans vs. vampire storyline (basically, humans can never escape them no matter what)? Also, hybrid ferries/vamps could have added a great new level of tension between the two species.... but alas.... the writers quickly disposed of this great potential. *sigh*
This season ended with a few high notes:
*Keeping Sarah alive and hopefully bringing her back. Her character was great and I would love to see what happens to her.
*Hopefully disposing of the tired werewolf vs. shifter storyline that I hated and thought was boring.
*Killing Eric. Should he come back I hope they don't wimp out and maybe introduce a new method bringing vamps back from their own true death (thus making us question what 'true death' really is?)
*Tara biting her mom. Also, Jessica approaching the ferry she tried to kill. Maybe there can be a new love/hate relationship between them.
*Sookie maintaining her hate for Bill. He should get a new love interest next season and try to win back Sookie's love through jealousy ( a great twist would be for Bill's new love interest to be the new villain).
I hope the next season goes back to the roots of season 1. A more simpler, united plot. Perhaps a new serial killer is targeting ferries in town while the Hep V vampires strike sending everyone of all species on edge? Would be great to have an exciting new mystery and fantasy show that the first three seasons were!

So I have yet to watch S6 so I have skipped through this thread. I just read that S7 will be the last and to be honest I am glad. I really feel it went down hill after S3. I still love Pam and Eric, Russell too and Jason the fool but it just seemed to loose something. However I still will watch S6 and 7.

I think it's the right decision to end it after Season 7 - the series has gotten very weak. It's just dragging on now.
For all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these, 'It might have been.'
Don't care that it's ending. I was actually happy when I heard. Especially considering the show is extremely homophobic. They're ok with homoeroticism, but not with a gay guy having sex.. WTF?! EVERYONE is getting laid EXCEPT Lafayette! Tara was rolling around in the bed with her lesbian girlfriend. When did we see Lafayette doing that with Jesus? OH YEAH, NEVER! Great representation that. Lesbians get to have sex, but gay men do not. Typical double standard. Fucking hypocritical.
I like Ryan Gosling, Chris Pine, Chace Crawford, Ryan Reynolds, Bradley Cooper, Tom Hiddleston, Kris Allen, Armie Hammer, Teddy Sears, Jon Kortajarena

Makes me think how Hollywood hasn't changed that much. Its called the Doctor Smith syndrome (Lost in Space).
Then you had Russel Edgington bitchy husband prodigy filled with every hetro gay cliche , Talbot.
How about having a strong moral character portrayed by a gay man for once? Someone who is considered a hero instead of a pos scum bag? Or at least as a powerful mainstream character as Eric, Sam, Alcide or Bill.
Lafayette has gone nowhere in the story other then downhill secondary cast member, where as Tara has excelled becoming a more powerful part and not cooking catfish at the bar.

Lesbians have been prime viewing on the movie channels for a long time, and for some reason it just is more acceptable for guys to get off to two gals going at it than two guys. Almost every gay sex act, well, the few you see here is either implied, awkwardly done, or capitalizes like mentioned on gay stereotypes. God we get enough raw girl on girl stuff it's pathetic that a show originated by a gay guy just like Hollywood does treats gay characters like second class citizens... would be nice if an Alcide would get it on rough and hot with another guy and it actually means something to the storyline, for example. Nothing wrong with lesbian sex but why the fuck can't two guys going at it without an ulterior motive that cheapens or minimizes the meaningfulness of the act? Gay or bi guys who aren't afraid to show their passion for man flesh... in 2013 for fuck's sake is that too much to ask?
Jersey City waterfront/New York City JUB meet on September27/28... come to the Big Apple!!!!!!!!!
Most male on male sexuality in U.S. must be related to something extremely negative. It must be some kind of unwritten Hollywood rule. Either torture or pain or murder must be involved and usually the characters end up alone and miserable while they are killed off or commit suicide.
If any other minority were portrayed so relentlessly with stereotypes there would be outrage. But not us. We're the last remaining scape goats.
I'm not exactly glad next season will be the finale. Although I agree the series took a turn for the absurd after season two, I enjoy this summertime supernatural drama. I'll miss it.
The Final Season could have hope......... 10 episodes, 7 seasons, best decision.
My idea: Bring True Blood back to it's roots.
Vampires will never die, and also won't co-exist alongside humans peacefully....ever..... but Bon Temp represents the struggle between human vs. non human over the 'True Blood' world.
A new serial killer targets Bon Temp.... and all species are targeted.... fairies, vamps, humans...... (forget werewolves, they are out). As Sookie and the 'gang' struggle to find the killer, they discover the killer is much more powerful than a serial killer ... but is an entity that holds the power to determining the future of humans and vamps coexisting period, and that all the victims are part of an equation of which 'race' wins in the end. So is the killer on the 'Vamp' or human side?
Well, that simply one idea (and this would be solved by episode 5, i hope).
Any others for a good final season?
Jason owes a lot of money to a loan shark and goes gay for pay. We get to watch him bottom.
Sookie Stakhouse is a dirty SLUT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GRRRRRR I had some problems with my PC lately so I basically had to wait until yesterday to be able to watch the sixth season of the show (which I love(D)) Adn F*** I'm so disappointed I could kill the scenarist of this shit !!!!! I just needed to get that out of my chest....
Never say "never"... Oops !
i like true blood also but sometimes these shows get old, they bring gay characters but they just tease just like supernatural etc e3tc.
stop teasing and lets see the fucking
Still one episode to go for me but I am glad the show is ending. It's just lost something but this season's surprise for me is Warlow I thought I'd hate him but I actually really like him, he is written well not too Louis from Interview moany but you feel for him. Steve, Jason, Pam and Eric are all still good but again they can only do so much. Hopefully they kill off Bill/Lilith in the season final but I doubt it.

You'll see... For me Warlo was a good character too but so FUCKING disappointed in the end I'm so glad there is only one season left... I was thinking about making a spin off of Eric's life with Godric before he meets this filthy little piece of dirty tiny gross stinking shit... Sookie is loosing all her interest and they didn't think about making something to keep us pending till the end (of the seventh). I mean 'm only gonna watch the last one for I want to know how it ends but without the feeling that I need to see it. I was a huge fan and now I'm only a lambda follower....
Never say "never"... Oops !
