After watching three seasons of True Blood, I've come to the conclusion that like a Value Meal at McDonald's, the show packs in a lot of crap that's fun while it lasts but leaves you feeling unsatisfied.
Once upon a time, I liked this show! But lately, even though a lot happens in every episode, it feels sluggish, heavy, tedious and drawn-out.
Sometimes the tone of this show is mystifying. Just when you settle in for a campy, fun ride, you're forced to sit through some "serious" stuff.
Who knew suffering from severe blood loss could be so fun?
Last night's episode was so romantic!
Lots of stuff happened in last night's episode, but honestly, Alcide is such a tasty piece of mancandy, who can focus on anything else?
Last night's episode had so much sex. Motel sex, workplace cunnilingus, and straight-up hatefucking.
There were lots of odd moments in last night's episode, and Lafayette's hallucinatory PTSD moment was one of the weirdest.
Why waste time with whatever lame pillow talk Bill and Sookie are having when you can have scenes with Lafayette?
