True Blood Poster, Season 2

As the title says, I just watched episodes 8 and 9 of the second season of True Blood, and it’s just, wow!

I am especially sad about the ending with Godric, cause I really liked him a lot. A well played character and a well chosen actor, who, though being so young (and small like hell – maybe even smaller than me?), manages to build up an aura of wisdom and authority – really managing to convince you that he is 2,000 years old. Really great.

Therefore his dead is really sad. Meanwhile there is so much tension building up, e.g. between Tara and Eggs, and her mother and Lafayet – I’m really curious about how this will develop. Still this whole Maryann story just puzzles me – I have no idea what so ever, on what to expect. But, from the beginning that I saw Michelle Forbes on the set, I knew she wasn’t for any good. Still, I didn’t recognize her, I just knew that I know her. It was my girlfriend that remembered her being Admiral Cain on Battlestar Pegasus. I guess that’s why somehow I’m prejudiced against her. But if I remember correctly, I already was, when I first saw her step out of the shuttle in Battlestar Galactica. Somehow she has an evil aura…

And then of course there’s also the story with Eric, Bill and Sookie. Now with Sookie having drunk Erics blood this relationship is also getting more explosive. Just recalls this blog post I recently found – which reminds me of one of the best quotes in this context:

But my blood is stronger than yours!

(Eric to Bill, when Sookie was attacked by Maryann)

Sadly, being at Episode 9 means that season 2 will be over soon. And it’s just such long time till June, for season 3 (and it’ll be even harder waiting for season 4).

At least I am happy that the Jason-Church-of-the-Sun madness just resolved. Even though Jason might be stupid, it somehow felt wrong from the first moment onward.

True Blood Promotional Poster, Season 1

After watching King of Queens, Friends, Six Feet Under, Scrubs, Dexter, the entire Star Trek series, Desperate Housewives, Battlestar Galactica and Jekyll (still need to blog on those ones!), I now found a new, really interesting series, that, at least in Germany is pretty unknown. It’s called “True Blood”, and it’s written by “Alan Ball”, who wrote the movie “American Beauty” and the series “Six Feet Under”. Producer is HBO, who is famous for quite some quality series (such as “Six Feet Under”). In America it’s aired since September 2008, in Germany the first season was aired in May 2009, on the private pay-tv channel 13th Street. Only yesterday they started airing the the second season. A third one is been produced (starting December 2009) and will be aired in the USA this year, rumors on a fourth season were confirmed by Ball (probably 2011). Each episode is approximately an hour long, and normally ends with a really nasty cliffhanger.
