I have a feeling most of us share this feeling…
Crave Online shared their list of TV’s Guilty Pleasures and True Blood was mentioned.
This is what they said;
“True Blood” is a wonderfully crazy show unlike any other. It’s got a huge, devoted fan base, so you don’t really have to feel guilty about loving it unless you’re trying to describe it to the one person who’s unfamiliar with the show… then it makes you sound like a schizophrenic hobo. I mean, when one plotline is best described as “When the awesomely effeminate psychic chef goes into the kitchen, he sees a slave ghost lady stealing a baby that belongs to an old redheaded lady and her PTSD-suffering husband. And the telepathic fairy waitress has to choose between two different vampires and a werewolf as potential dating partners,” you know you’re watching a crazy show. Whoever you describe it to will probably want to throw you in the nuthouse, but as long as they let you watch “True Blood,” it’d be okay.
As the seasons progress, weirder and weirder awesomeness unfolds. Now it’s to the point now where you can’t possibly take the show seriously, which only adds to the amaze-balls factor. No matter what a person thinks about the show, they can’t argue about its entertainment value. Stuff happens that can only and has only happened on “True Blood.”
Speaking for myself…I do think it’s gotten crazier and crazier as the seasons have gone by. I would even call “True Blood” laughable. I wouldn’t say some things can only and has only happened on “True Blood” (cough) smoke monster like on “Lost” (cough). You can’t argue with the Eric Northman eye-candy we get to drool over each week either.
But…maybe it’s because we were so disappointed by how the book series ended and all the other disappointments we’ve already suffered at the hands of the writers on the show…I have to say that I’m guilty of still trying to keep my hopes alive where Eric and Sookie are concerned. I don’t understand it either, but what’s the point of watching, unless you can find some kind of reason to watch it? The craziness, nakedness and violence only provides entertainment for so long before even those become unwatchable. That’s why I think being invested in the characters gives it that added umph!
