Well I posted a few times in the thread. And then in this episode at the very beginning they showd how silver harms them. Oh and when she gave them the rings she said very un-suspiciously they are made of SILVERRR so that really everybody got it.
But my post was asking about something less obvious (at least for me). And no ... I wasn't offended
Um, saw the first episode of season 2, and just saw the 2nd episode last night.
all of it!!!
Were you waiting breathlessly with anticipation, Joshy?
I totally thought Jason and that other religious dude were going to make out, or Jason was going to wake up in the middle of the night getting a blowjob from him. Possibly wishful thinking, but meh.
I also didn't read any of the above spoilers, so shoot me if I shoulda known
There are so many hot men in this show it's ridiculous.
Sookie's going to catch hell from Bill for bringing that stupid Jessica to her parents' house. I bet he has to turn them all into vampires (save the little girl, possibly) to protect himself and her. But then again, Eric wants to take Sookie to Dallas - with or without Bill's permission - and I think that will occur in the next episode.
And to that sales lady thinking Bill and Eric were a former gay couple...this show has so many homoerotic undertones, you'd think religious groups would start thinking vampires and gays are the same...
Finally, I heart True Blood.
Spoiler: (Highlight this box to see the hidden message.)
I thought Corny was a bot!!! : O
I'm beautiful in my way - cause god makes no mistakes - I'm on the right track - baby I was born this way!
The second season is here! The second season is here! The second season is here!!
As of yesterday I'm all up to date. I like how it seems all of the characters have their own thing going on this season. It's a nice change from everybody being all tangled together in one big storyline.
this show is sooooo good!
I'm super giddy for Hoyt+Jessica. I thought he was underused last season, and I felt sorry for his character after Renee died and Jason went all Jesus.
Whatever happened to that white dog poop from the '70s?
Hoyt is delicious..i never noticed his scrumpticiousness until tonights episode.
Lafayette said "i cant come in unless i invite you in Eric" but thats not true because Eric could glamour him into letting Lafayette invite him in the same way Bill glamoured the little girl last week.
Vampire rules keep changing.
I like Hoyt even more because of this episode. I really wish that they would kill mary ann off the show, or speed up the process with her storyline. I love the fact that Eric is obsessed with Lafayette. And Jessica is gorgeous.
"I'm Beginning To Love Myself A Little More Everyday"
Yes, "Hoyt" is kinda hot. In reality, the guy that plays him is a classically trained actor who is *nothing* like the character he plays...
That much can be said for most of the cast... (Except maybe "Jason")
*Major* props to whoever picked Marcy Playground's "Sex and Candy" to play when Jessica walked into Merlotte's for the first time. The perfect choice.
This show seriously *rocks* ! The writing and the acting are amazing.
"When vampires first came out of their coffins, me and my sister were first to march in their equal rights parade.."
HOW could I have thought this entire show was a metaphor for gay rights, nadawon80 ? I was SO off base.
How about that Daphne....? :P
Bill: 'It's always a pleasure doing business with you Doctor'
Doctor: 'Fuck off'
Also the Pam and her pumps scene, hilarious.
Hoyd and Jessica will become TB's new power couple!
The show has taken more of a comedic twist that I like. And I keep thinking something bad is going to happen to Jessica. I like her but I get nervous for her character when she comes on.
"I'm Beginning To Love Myself A Little More Everyday"
I find Jessica kind of annoying. She takes away from my favorite characters. She seems to get more screen time than Tara and Lafayette.
Just the thought of Sam skinny dipping....
And I'm with ya Corny and Epic, Is Daphne a victim or a victimizer?
Jason and the church lady.
Best line of the episode:
My wife doesn't just whip her pudding out for anybody.
I wonder what'll happen with Lafayette. I hate that they've sidetracked so much from the book, oh well.... Eric is still as scruptious as ever, maybe even more
I can proudly say I've always found Hoyt attractive, more so than Jason. (Don't kill me!) Tonight really helped me deepen my attraction with his shirtless scene and hitting it off with Jessica.
Hoyt deserves a good girl, not Jessica in my opinion. She's a fresh vampire who can't control her actions. Don't get me wrong, I love Jessica's character and I hope she's around for a while as I am taking a shining to her nicer side, but she isn't the girl I want to see Hoyt with.
Daphne said we'd get a glimpse of what she is by looking at the tattoo on her. I still don't know what it is other than the claw marks on her back which I do not believe is what she was referring to in her interview.
Lafayette can practically glamour people on own already so I think glamouring him would be a big challenge. I'm so glad he shaved.
Also I'm glad Hoyt's getting his sexy on! His character was fading away for a bit.
So apparently Mary-Anne feeds off other peoples sexual energy and I guess she store it in the pig or her pigs a symbol or something.
That thing that attacked Sookie was pretty cool. If it's poison can stop a human from accepting vampire blood imagine what it would do to a vampire.
I can't think of another show on TV right now that can keep me transfixed for a full 60 minutes....
It's nothing short of brilliant film making. I love Alan Ball. I didn't think he could top "Six Feet Under", but damn if he isn't getting close.
I can't wait until the next episode.
In the books, the thing that attacked Sookie is MaryAnn, the maenad. She attacks Sookie to send Eric a "message". But in the series... who knows!
Nobody has mentioned my favorite scene this year. It was when Eric went in the basement with foil in his hair. I guess Pam was coloring it. After he chewed up that guy, he asked Lafayette if there was blood in his hair and said that Pam would kill him.
I still kinda miss Renee...
With that (fake) accent of his I thought he was the sexiest thing on the show...
Ahh well... Hoyt's starting to look better and better...
lmao, does anyone else randomly blurt out SoooooKIEE! In bills accent....?
"I think that the American Vampire League is a lobbying organization and so they are advocating for a particular group," he continued. "I don't think the vampires are ever going to [organize]. They have an agenda. What that agenda is probably in their own self-interest, which is usually the case with any lobbying group. I think the vampires are rather like humans in many ways. There are a lot of peaceful, law-abiding vampires that no longer have to hunt humans and then there are those for whom they just want everything. They want power, they want control, they want money. And they'll do what they have to do to get it."
Still, said Ball, drawing a direct connection between the series' vampires and the gay rights movement is "lazy"... and wrong. "Ultimately, if you latch onto that metaphor and become really serious about it, it would make the show was extremely homophobic," he said. "Because vampires are dangerous, they kill, they're amoral, a lot of them. I don't think that's what it is. I think that's just a nice little detail in what is hopefully a big popcorn thrill ride.
Vampires have long been used as an outlet for human sexuality in story telling, I don't think it's lazy to immediately jump to that conclusion if the whole series hasn't been dropped in our laps. Alan Ball knows what's coming or where he wants to go, we don't. It is lazy on Alan's part to alienate (<not the word I wanted to use, but it's slipped my mind) some of his fan base with his thoughtless comment considering Vampire history in film, especially in the 80's when "the bite" was correlated with becoming infected [with aids].
"...they're amoral, a lot of them." I think the same can be said about a lot of homosexuals screwing everything in sight and defiling their bodies with drugs. He should have chosen his words more carefully.
Anyway, I love me some True Blood. I actually like it when he says "Sookie" when he's frustrated or trying to explain something to her.
I really like Maryanne.
I'm kinda hoping that they don't end everything with her just yet.
Then again I'm a loser who can watch an entire episode with no conflict and not care too much.
I'm pissed that this sunday True Blood "Is taking a break"
wtf 3 episodes in? lol
It'll be back the following week.
This week they're showing Episodes 1-3 so people can catch up.
(HBO On demand is useless I guess?)
I don't care about the people who didn't watch it! I Want me some sookie and the crew.
Which is weaselly if you ask me, it's not like we're not paying for it...
As for the series being a metaphor for gay rights... Look, I really don't want to argue about it. Whatever your opinion is is the right opinion for you.
But, we *are* talking about Alan Ball here. Everything he's been involved in from "American Beauty" to "Six Feet Under" has had a strong homosexual undertone running through it.
I doubt much has changed.

^Oh my god, is that true?
why the hell did I highlight that?
I think the episode recap coming up sunday is caused by HBO not wanting to compete with America's attention to the Independence weekend.
And along comes Barry.
