True Blood Headstone Banner

Did Tony Soprano get taken out when the screen went black? Were the Losties in Purgatory all along? Finales never satisfy everybody, and lines are usually drawn one minute after a series ends.

So how did the True Blood finale measure up?

Warning! Spoiler Alert!

Well it was certainly different from the usual episodes. Whereas one can usually count on gratuitous violence, nudity, and ridiculous lines like, “You just killed my fairy godmother!”, the series finale was much tamer and somber, emphasized by sad string music. The music set the pace and was appropriate for the gravity of Sookie’s (Anna Paquin) decision about Bill (Stephen Moyer). Bill is maudlin and feeling his humanity. He wants the true death even though the cure for Hep-V had been offered and subsequently rejected by him. He wants Sookie to end him with her fairy light ball, so that she can lead a normal life with babies. He believes that as long as he is alive, Sookie will always come back to him. That’s kinda arrogant, but he is probably right. While many may disagree, Bill was falling right in line with his character: brooding, guilt-stricken, and martyr-like. This is not including when Bill was evil and much more fun during the Authority storyline. Sad, guilty Bill made me want to kill him. I’ve always been more Team Eric though.

What’s Next For Our Favorite ‘True Blood’ Cast Members?

True Blood Season 7 Cast Banner

True Blood is meeting the true death tonight. While some of the cast members had managed to work on higher profile projects in between seasons (Joe Manganiello in Magic Mike; Alexander Skarsgard in Straw Dogs; Anna Paquin in X-Men: Days of Future Past), some of the cast did little else, choosing to hone their True Blood character (or enjoy their time off — I know I would). Still…we always had the comfort of knowing that come Summer, we could still catch Sookie and the gang jump from one bloody predicament to another.

But alas…everything must come to an end eventually, especially if it is as frivolously fun as True Blood. That doesn’t mean we won’t be able to see our faves act, direct, produce, and even write other films and television shows, right? So what can we look forward to? Here’s a look at what’s next for some of our favorite True Blood cast members.

Comicpalooza 2011

During Memorial Day weekend (May 27-29, 2011), Comicpalooza held its 4th annual multi-genre convention at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX. I attended the first two days of this three-day convention. First of all, this was my first big convention in Texas and the layout of the convention center was massive. The whole convention took place on the 3rd level of this massive convention center.

The highlights of the convention for me were the opportunities to interact with comic creators, comic fans, and celebrities. I spent a short amount of time on Friday observing the entire Con floor and chatting with various artists and writers in Artist Alley. I also checked out a few things in the Dealers Room. Before leaving for the day, I sat in on panel with comic writer Chris Roberson (I-Zombie), Fred Van Lente (Marvel Zombies), and Brian Denham (Zombie Fairy Tales) on a panel titled Comics & Zombies. By the name of the panel, you can guess what was discussed.

Geek Discussion: ‘True Blood’ Season 3 Finale: What Did You Think?

True Blood Season 3 finaleGreetings vamplings, tis I, Cruechik, back once again to discuss my favorite undead creatures. This time, it’s the vamps of True Blood, which after two long weeks of waiting, finally aired the finale of season 3 tonight.

Warning: If you haven’t seen Season 3 of True Blood, there be SPOILERS.

True Blood Season 3 saw the introduction of all kinds of ‘supes including werewolves — most importantly the drool-inducing Alcide Herveaux (Joe Manganiello); fairies; and crazy inbred werepanthers. Our heroine, Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and her favorite (or is he…hmm…?) vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) have had a series of skirmishes this season, and at the end of last epi’s cliffie, it once again appeared the part fae part human Sookie might not survive. Of more concern to me was whether or not VILF Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) would meet the true death. It didn’t look too good for Eric, who was out in the daylight frying like a catfish in a cast iron pan, handcuffed to insane “I carry my dead lover’s remains around in a candy jar” vamp king, Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare).

Dragon*Con 2010: ‘True Blood’ Panel Feat. Sam Trammell, Nelsan Ellis and Kristin Bauer

Geeks of Doom Invades Dragon*Con 2010 banner

Some of the cast of True Blood made their way to Dragon*Con 2010 to chat about their characters on the show and a little bit about the season finale.

“There’ll be blood,” said Nelsan Ellis who plays Lafayette jokingly on the panel that also featured Sam Trammell (Sam Merlotte) and Kristin Bauer (Pam). “You will definitely find something out about my dude [Jesus].”

Ellis spoke about how he wasn’t crazy about the idea of Lafayette having a serious love interest, but said he changed his mind upon seeing the episodes because it showed whole new “tender” dimension to the character.

In reference to the finale, Trammell mentioned something about “death,” but quickly retracted the statement and changed the topic to the subject of nudity on set. He couldn’t recall whether his character is naked in the season 3 finale episode and as anyone who watches the show knows, it tends to happen often.

DVD Review: ‘True Blood’ The Complete Second Season

True Blood The Complete Second Season
DVD/Blu-ray
Writers/Directors: Alan Ball, Adam Davidson, Daniel Minahan, John Dahl, Michael Cuesta, Michael Lehmann
Starring: Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Sam Trammell, Ryan Kwanten, Rutin Wesley, Alexander Skarsgård, Nelsan Ellis, Deborah Ann Woll, Michelle Forbes
HBO Home Video
Release Date: May 25, 2010

The first season of HBO’s True Blood was something of a surprise hit. The crazy new b-movie-like series took some getting used to at first, but once you were engaged, there was no going back. With franchises like The Twilight Saga making loads of money off dumbed-down, sparkle-happy, family-friendly vampires, the ultra-violent and relentlessly graphic vampire drama unfolding in the southern town of Bon Temps was a bloody fresh new title to embrace.

The one thing about True Blood, however, that was hinted at in the first season and was completely unleashed in this second season, was that this is NOT just a show about vampires…not even close.

True Blood
Season 1 DVD
Series Creator, Writer, Director: Alan Ball
Starring: Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Ryan Kwanten, Sam Trammell, Rutina Wesley, Nelsan Ellis
HBO Home Entertainment
Release Date: May 19, 2009

By taking the blood of the night into our bodies, we water the flowers of our souls.

Nothing is real.

Everything is permitted.

Deep south. Rednecks. Vampires that live among us. These are the main components to True Blood, the ultra-graphic HBO show from Alan Ball (American Beauty) which has completed their first incredibly successful first season and is currently moving into their second season.

The show is based on the The Southern Vampire Mysteries series of books and follows young Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), a simple southern belle with the mysterious ability to read minds who works as a waitress at Merlotte’s, the local bar in Bon Temps, Louisiana — a religious town that doesn’t have any known vampire residents. One day in this quiet town, a vampire named Bill (Stephen Moyer) shows up at the bar, and Sookie immediately greets him with a glowing curiosity which turns into real chemistry after she saves his life. This newfound vampire connection has Sookie’s boss Sam (Sam Trammell) and best friend Tara (Rutina Wesley) angry and watching carefully. Unfortunately, right around the time that Bill the vampire shows up, multiple women in this small town start showing up dead and no one really knows why — but many are quick to point a sharp finger, either at Bill, or at Sookie’s ladies man brother Jason (Ryan Kwanten), who is always romantically (physically) connected to the victims.
