I love Alan Ball produced shows- True Blood and Six Feet Under had satisfying finalés (though Six was the best I've seen). Can't wait to see what he does next…Humblebrag: About 2 years into True Blood, we went to a Halloween Ball in New Orleans called "The Black and Gold Ball". It featured a book auction, Charlane Harris who I got to meet because I was slipped past the velvet rope- (I know, it was naughty), as well as the band who played the theme song as some of the entertainment… Good times!
In order of importance, My Beefs w/ True Blood:
1) I didn't get to see Sarah Newland naked.
2) I didn't get to see Hoyt's Alaska GF naked.
3) I didn't get to see baby vamp Jessica Naked.
I'll miss Eric sans clothes, Lafayette's everything and Pam's deadpan wisecracks. I just stopped caring about Sookie and Beeeeel back in season one.
I was hoping since, Bill felt more human and getting warm… that Sookie would've gotten pregnant! You know a living swimmer breaks through!
I sort of liked the TB finale. There was closure, even if there was a glaring lack of Lafayette (please hooker!). Sookie had her family around her and a baby on the way, what she always wanted.
Brian Buckner is on my shit list! FU, Brian!
How on earth could Eric have fathered Sookie's baby? Besides, Eric sort of vowed to keep his distance. He's too busy being smarmy CEO Eric anyway. (I didn't dislike that.)
Sookie was shown embracing a tallish, dark-haired bearded man who sat at the head of the table (sort of Alcide-y). That's obviously meant to be her dude 😛
TB got too whiny. Not enough action. Meh
just finished last night's ray donovan directed by liev.. hot hot. ray d is awesome. hbo shows suck ass now.. after the newsroom only girls will be left, and that's not enough paying a $subscription for.
tara's mother was at the picnic table at the end. lafayette got the short end of the stick.. he might as well have taken a seat next to tara.. has anyone figured out yet if eric fathered sookie's baby??
Lafayette was seated at the picnic table in the last shot.As for the GF, it was a leadup to Jason marrying her & settling down with kids in the last shot.
Otherwise, this season did really suck, the entire Hep-V mess made no sense.But I did like what happened to Sara Newlin!
As one who was #TrueToTheEnd, this whole season was awful. Piss poor writing. Lafayette should have gotten at least a couple of lines.Did anyone see Charlaine Harris in the finale? I didn't see her.And did Tara's mother die? I saw someone mention it on Twitter. I must have went to sleep at some point.
@pghgirl: Don't forget THIS epic Pam moment <3
she did have some great lines……great actress also
and I kinda liked the lovely Jessica……baby vamp
Forgeddabouddit! That was beautifully written and couldn't agree more @zach. 🙂
+1 on missing Pam. She had the best lines ever. "?"Sookie i am so over Sookie and Her Precious Fairy Vagina and Her Unbelievably Stupid Name F*** Sookie!" and my personal favorite?"Do not tell me you'll put our entire species at risk for a gash in a sundress." Priceless…
Well that was pretty disappointing. Not surprised though.
I'll miss Pam the most.
It was boring and too neatly wrapped up. Except…..
Where the hell was Lafayette? And why did Hoytes girlfriend get so much screen time? Which director was she fucking?
too stupid; didn't care.
Please don't mind any typos as I use my phone! Such a chore but I've become such a fast typist with my thumbs and would have fewer errors if not for autocorrect.
Dexter ending was a true cop out.
and I agree that you are supposed to dislike Marnie
Allison is fine and plays the role the way she should
best ep of Ray Donovan evah last night
I don't even hate Marni at all! I just think when she's 'acting' pissed she sucks and when she's supposed to be sad and crying, where are the tears??? I love that Shoshana girl.
I liked the Ending of True Blood better than the ending of Sopranos.
HBO needs to get it in gear. True Blood, Boardwalk Empire and News Room ending back to back to back. Leftovers sucks, GOT has 1/10th the nudity so its going to start losing viewers, True Detective w/ new story and cast is a crap shoot, Girls sucks. Veep it the only solid show they got.
Great catch sugar!!!!Did you also catch the following BrBa nod:Juan Bolsa=Johnny Sacs
Oh Dexter's ending was the WORST! I'm still pissed off about that one.
I watched a few epi's of TB and I never got the draw. It was too silly for me to even want to waste my time with.
BrBa on the other hand was smart. Very smart.
Yeah he left for Banshee which kicks ass.
No Allison is playing her character Marnie perfectly. . Your supposed to hate her and she's supposed to be above you. .In her mind. That's her character.
True Blood ended when Alan Ball left. With the exception of introducing the sexy Violet character, these two last seasons su-uuuucked.
Never saw first 4 season just last 3. Shit show indead.. no brba. 4sho..
I only started watching 2 years ago do I haven't wasted as much time on tb as most but the last 3 seasons were awful. Last night was pathetic. Sooo I'm guessing Eric is sookie baby daddy? ?
Allison Williams needs acting lessons but otherwise, I've really enjoyed Girls! I'm already into the 2nd season.
Oooooh please do share the origins of Massive Gee. I haven't watched the Sopranos in years.
This whole season was awful….just awful
I've been getting suckered in to watching the BB marathons on Sunday night. My love for Jessie Pinkman lives on….
I learned where our very own Massive Gee got his troll name by watching The Sopranos too! The more you know.
Don't tell me! I haven't started watching the series yet – been meaning to do that for years! Just kidding – spoil away! – I just won't read the comments.
Considering how difficult to watch TB was for several seasons due to convoluted supernatural storylines and too many new characters, the final season was a return to form. Yeah, it lost steam years ago and never bounced back. And yeah, the finale was disappointing to many including myself, as it was bound to be. But at least I was glued to the screen like I had been years ago!
@Sugar: SOPRANOS was my favorite show until I saw BrBa!!! ENJOY!
SO watched and kept repeating lines to me. I almost burnt myself twice (cooking), I was laughing so hard. Then he would say "Beeeyullll" in this high pitched voice and I'd lose it again. 😀
Sugar, I didn't think I would, but I actually liked Girls! If you haven't yet, put Six Feet Under on your marathon list – you won't regret it!
I guess Charlaine Harris is gearing up for a big trip to Wal-Mart now. Woo Hoo!
I just started watching The Sopranos. Maybe in 10 years I'll watch True Blood?
And I also just started watching Girls. I love it!
Can anyone tell I just got my subscription to HBO Go?
