True Blood in the News


FYIWith Halloween just around the corner, thoughts of Vampires are popping up everywhere. Not that vampires were far from our minds (or a certain Tall, Blonde, Viking one in particular), the rest of the world is just catching up to us. Like on NBC…. who have added a set of “fangs” to their line up with Dracula (10 PM eastern on Fridays). They are now trying to unite all fans of the fang with a primetime special “Why We (Heart) Vampires”. According to DreadCentral, the show will be ” a collection of fun, comedic interviews accompanied by entertaining clips from our favorite vampire moments.” Including some from True Blood. As of right now, it looks like True Blood will be represented by Kristin Bauer Van Straten and Carrie Preston. One wonders what clips we will see with Eric during the special.

The special should air this coming Friday (Nov 1st) at 8 PM eastern.

In other True Blood news, it looks like we will be having more of Lettie Mae in season 7 as actress Adina Porter has been upgraded to regular. I love her on HBO’s “The Newsroom” so I am very happy for her. The other side of me is going “this is taking even more time from when we could have Eric on our screens”.

Till next time folks!

About B

Really, there is never enough Eric... I'm loyal to the Viking, no matter what. I will love him whether in Book, Show, and just because... my first thoughts are of him and I close my eyes to dream of him. As far as I'm concerned, the night can not get here soon enough.

  1. I agree with you B. The more actors they add the less we will get of the Viking!

  2. Oh my, another show I’ll have to DVR. Thanks for the heads up on this special B. It should be interesting and I hope that they do show Eric in the TB clips and not all of the “other” one!! Very happy that TB is represented by our two lovely ladies, Kristin and Carrie.

  3. Lettie Mae and Pam could be an interesting combination! I hope they get at least a scene together.

  4. Happy Halloween everyone. I’m a big fan of this site, Alex, Eric when he’s written in character, and Eric/Sookie when it seemed like all these “professional” writers were organically going somewhere great with them. I’ve been lurking for 2+ years, but never posted before now. I’m not that tech-savvy. I just got my laptop, my Internet connection, and I’m ready to go. ESL was my first stop. Anyway, back to the topic: I love Adina Porter as an actress, don’t get me wrong. But I thought TB was done with the Lettie Mae s/l when Adina and Rutina had that great scene in s5 in FT where LM disowned her bisexual vampire daughter. After Middle Finger Ever After and the “entitled readers” public verbal attacks (sorry to rehash), I lost what little enthusiasm I had left for TB and pretty much sat out s6 except for Alex’s scenes (which were emotionally painful for me to watch as I felt Eric was written horribly OOC for the most part, though I know others here disagree, and I’m very cool with that) and a few others. I cannot stomach watching Tara’s original abuser LM get put on a fake “redemption” tour alongside Sookie’s original rapist Bill (again) and her attempted rapist Alcide. I also don’t care about Sookie’s boring misogynistic backburner “HEA” Sam: The Sequel (after Plot Device Pregnant Nicole is killed off or sent away just in time, of course). Not interested. Just like s6, I’ll sit out s7. I’ll wait until I know how the series ends. I might even cancel my HBO, since I don’t really watch it much anyway anymore. I’m tired of the abuse of my time and money. Anyway-I’m sorry for the lengthy rant. It’s my first post, and I’ve been carrying this for over TWO YEARS. Thanks for the head’s up on the vampire show, and keep up the fun escapism.
