True Blood just keeps getting better...
Only 5 episodes in, and season 3 of True Blood is already better than the whole of season 2, and at least just as good as the first. Tara is still Tara, Sookie is still a tad annoying, and Jason will always be a moron, but damn it if everything else isn't blazing ahead full bore towards the abyss of awesomeness. With no brakes. Randomly, let's discuss the finer points: -The wolves are awesome, and the first glimpses inside their culture opens the door for all sorts of possibilities. the Nazi super-wolf/vamp thing is intriguing. -Alcide is pretty cool. Sookie's gonna bang him. -Eric is awesome, still, and thankfully he's getting a lot more to do this season. His back story is great. Oh, and Sookie's gonna bang him. Man is she looking good.
You dirty, dirty girl.
-I'm actually liking Sam and his story arc for a change. Sookie is not going to bang him. Poor Sam.
-Sookie using her powers again was awesome. Being familiar with the books, I'm wondering how they are going to handle all of that. They seem to deviate from the book in a lot of areas, and with her powers, I hope they do the same... it's too spoiler-ish to say anymore than that though.
-Lafayette is back in true form, which serves to make the show that much better. Considering he dies in the first book (or second, I can't remember), I think the best decision Alan Ball has made for the show is keeping him around. Oh, and Lafayette is going to bang Jesus.
"I don't know what Brokeblack Mountain is, but I'd love to go there."
-Sophie Anne and the Magister could be screwed.
-Pam better not bet screwed, she's really cool.
Leave her be, you Magister jerk!
And the non-finer points:
-Jason and the whole cop thing... come on.
-Tara being angry and confused is annoying... but it looks like this last episode she started to get her act together, and let's hope she changes for the better.
-Why can't they make the episodes 2 hours long? I mean, come on!
We can't wait for next week. I'm hoping we learn more about Eric an his viking-revenge plan, and I'm curious to see what happens to sookie now that people have seen her new ability.
Season 3 is an A+ so far guys, so keep it coming!
