Finished Watching S1 of True Blood

There were a lot of good quotes towards the end of the season, hence, a few icons:






I cannot believe they KILLED Sookie's cat!! Poor girl. :-( Question: I knew it was Rene since I have watched later seasons. Who did most of you think the killer was before the big reveal? Was poor, twitchy Terry a suspect? Did people really think Jason had done it? (Although that last one, clearly not.)

Poor Sam: Was his or Tara's childhood more fucked up? I kinda have to go with Sam's. That abandonment scene was rough.

Silly Bill: If you're going to go out in the sunlight, at least grab a hat or a blanket!

Pam: For being such a posh vampire, she sure has some weird non-Fangtasia wardrobe. Cornflower blue, nubby wool suit?! And if there is ever a scene where she shows a range of emotion, someone please tell me. She's really got one mode: Ice cold bitch and that is it. I guess sometimes there's a little more contempt than others!

Poor Eddie: Sad human life, sad vampire life.

Amy: Well, at least her carbon footprint was small. I love Lizzy Caplan but Amy was such a self-serving beyotch and she really was a psychopath.

"Miss Jeannette" was the police captain on Detroit 187, I think.

Eric: There was just not enough Eric in S1. That scene where he shows up at Bill's in his bathtub! Mmmm! I adore his line deliveries; he's always so amused by everything, which I love.

Y'know, the way Sookie's life is front and center at Merlotte's and everywhere else makes me cringe. I guess she never has much privacy but the scene where she announces at work to a packed house that yes, she had sex with Bill just makes me want to shake her. Lazy storytelling if you ask me, but oh well.

I totally want her kitchen, btw, despite all the bad juju there. I'd love to have breakfast around that table.

Michelle Forbes has been on every fannish show ever. Lost, 24, BSG, Prison Break, TNG. I first saw her in Homicide: Life on the Street, I think and have loved her ever since.

S1 Finale: I guess this is where the series departs from the books. That was one goofy final reveal there, show.

I never thought it was Terry,but I was completely shocked to find out that it was Rene!He looked just as harmless as Terry or Hoyt to me.

And if there is ever a scene where she shows a range of emotion, someone please tell me.
Have you seen S3?I think you did,but if not-you get some emotions there,lol.

Also-definitely not enough Eric.

Rene definitely looked like he never bathed! But a killer, no? I probably wouldn't have pegged him as the killer if I hadn't known that going in.

I have seen most of S3 and I think I know which Pam scenes you're talking about. She just has zero charisma though so I don't remember feeling much of anything Maybe it's the actress, she really does zip for me. Oh well, I like just about everyone else in the cast!

More Eric is always good! My TiVo for some reason didn't record last night's ep so I had to set to record a repeat. Eep!

Is Forbes season 1? I thought that was S2. I guess I need to go back and rewatch! Pam definitely gets emotional in S3 which I think you've seen, but I'll avoid talking about it in case you haven't...

Forbes shows up at the very end of S1 and then wreaks havoc (so I hear) in S2. I've seen bits here and there, but never the whole thing. I should also rewatch S3 since I didn't have the benefit of the earlier seasons when I did watch.

I think I've put my finger on what it is I don't like about Pam: She just doesn't have a sense of humor! I love how droll Eric is and Russell and Franklin were both hysterical. I guess she's the vampire straight woman. Bill doesn't have a sense of humor either, really, but that seems to work for him, being the moody, broody leading man and all.

So, curious: Who are your least favorite TB characters?

In S3, you see how deeply Pam cares for Eric (When it appears at least twice that he is going to meet the true death - from the authority and then when he takes out Russell in the sun). I hope they flashback them at some point. It could flesh her out a little. At this point, she's a sassy, dangerous vampire who loves her maker and little else.

I think Pam is hysterical (Her eat, fuck, kill line pretty much made my night on Sunday), but to each their own! And Bill can be funny. I still laugh whenever someone brings up his lecture to Jessica on recycling.

Umm...least favorites...it can vary season to season based on the arcs they're given, but I'll go with Tommy, Crystal, and Andy right now for S4. I thought Sam and Jason/Crystal had the worst arcs last season by far which made them my least faves for a while. It really depends on plot with this show!

Characters I absolutely hate (As in, no amazing storyline could save them) would probably be Jason's v addict girlfriend off the top of my head. I couldn't wait for her to die!

Hmm, I think it's just that actress who plays Pam. She just doesn't do it for me! Did they ever do her backstory?

I thought Sam and Jason/Crystal had the worst arcs last season by far which made them my least faves for a while.

So true. Crystal is, imho, the worst thing to ever happen to the show. Goddamn trailer trash panthers! Not fair when the werewolves are so cool: Smacks of anti-feline bias!
