No your eyes are not deceiving you, you are seeing what you are seeing or not seeing as the case may be! I have been having a little problem with my laptop computer (still an ongoing problem) and wouldn’t you know it ties in with True Blood!
It seems that I have am having trouble with the letter ‘E’ on my laptop (this is no joking matter I am dead serious) and it is the strangest thing. One minute it works and is there but the nxt it is compltly missing in the words I type.Theeeeeen the neeeeeext it giveeeeees meeeeee too many. It reminded me of the lack of Eric we have been getting for the final season promos. Oh,there he is in all his glory YAH! OMG, now where did he go? Quit appearing and disappearing, your driving me crazy!
We have all been wondering what Eric’s fate is and what this final season will bring. We know Alex has been filming and that is a good thing, seeing as how hush hush the powers that be have been about his storyline. Fine, be secretive if you want, that is all well and good but this is not how you get what you know to be a major fan base interested in the final season. Interest as it stands right now is skating on thin ice. Here is the gist of my opinion on this matter.
It is piss poor marketing IMO. If I am trying to sell a product, I go with my best,lead with it and give my BEST the BEST within that final product. I don’t sit him on the bench for most of a seven game series and only bring him out in the final seconds of game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals and expect to capture Lord Stanley in all his glory. He has to be used to his full potential and given the most ice time, in a manner of speaking. In my circles and in the clubs I hang out, that player is Eric so give him something good that can be appreciated by fans. In my view, Eric has always received the short end of the stick in the good guy department.
Bottom line is that ERIC sells this show for me, HE is the draw and if after pimping him out (which they are barely doing as they have done in the past) he is NOT a major player in the game (final season) all the powers that be would succeed is doing is ticking off their major fan base for misleading them. I won’t be suckered in again. I would rather sit on the bench with Eric, not caring if they win the Stanley Cup at all. You can’t stick BABY, I mean Eric, in a corner and only bring him out in a last ditch effort to win the game ( read win audience over) and then proceed to give the game winning goal to a mediocre player who did not even assist in said goal.
With that being said, I would like True Blood to go out with a bang and hold Lord Stanley’s Cup high above their heads, proud of their achievements and for giving their fans a great final ten episode season rather than leaving them with a WTF did I just watch feeling?
That remains to be seen but put me in coach, I’m ready to play. I tried to make this post funny and it started out that way with the telling of my letter E problem but then I got down to business and it got serious. Teach me to try and be funny huh? By the way, I do have a serious issue with this particular letter working only when it wants to and I thought to myself why do two of my favorite fictional characters have to start with the most used vowel out there? Why couldn’t it be the letter Q I am having problems with. One of my typing fingers are sore having to slam on the E button! Off to ice my finger!
Authors Note: NO keyboard letters were harmed during the making of this post, trying to get one letter to cooperate,just a finger! Yeah, I know I am not funny! Until next time!
