As we are about to go into the ‘FINAL SEASON’ of True Blood, there have been a ton of emotions floating around the world wide web about this. With each new detail that comes out about this 7th and final season, much has been said and felt by those in this fandom. While I had words to say aplenty, I noticed something was missing in the context and tone of my comments. Feelings! They lacked any kind of tone, snark, sarcasm or wit. I was just empty. In a nut shell……
I realized that I have been slowly feeling this way for quite some time in regards to this show. I am at that point to the hilt now. You see, I have many good things coming my way soon as far as entertainment goes. I have a few of my favorite summer shows returning, Big Brother UK has already started and I have some really great books being released! I was hoping I could count on True Blood being ONE of those things that I could get excited about. As it stands right now, the only thing I am excited about is the return of ERIC NORTHMAN, who has been my sole reason for watching this show for the past couple of seasons. With that being said, even that excitement is scarred with the thought of what they are going to do with his character. Alex can rock anything given to him but as usual the question will always be, WILL IT MAKE SENSE?
I should be sad that this show is ending after a seven year run. I should be sad that I will never again (after this season) look forward to Sunday True Blood nights and discussing it on Facebook right after the show. I should be sad that (after this season) there will be no blog posts about a new season and having speculations about what could happen. Alas, I am not sad, not about all that anyway. In fact, I am sad that I am not sad enough. I am actually glad it is ending, a show you used to love should not give a person a massive headache. I always finish what I started and I will go to the very end, just not with bells on.
These things ruined the show for me because they were all for naught and this is why I am not sad at all this show is ending. These things were full of major inconsistencies, simple plot devices or were simple overlooked and never addressed. It ruins the enjoyment of the show when said show is riddled with holes.
WHAT AM I SAD ABOUT
1. Not seeing Alex every Sunday night in the summer on my TV screen! This is what I will miss the most because he brings so much to the show, especially the last couple of seasons when they went off the rails. Eric Northman has been the MAIN saving grace, without him and a combo of a few other characters, this show would have tanked (JUST MY HUMBLE OPINION).
2. Jasonisms, pictures are so required here. The writers may have written the lines but Ryan made them great with his delivery.
3. Lafayette. Simply because I love him
At the end of the day, I am sad that I am not sad enough, nowhere near where I should be. I don’t know about my fellow bloggers here at ESL but I imagine it is along the same lines, at least somewhat! I wish I had that feeling of excitement that this show used to bring but I am just not getting the feels. As usual, sound off below!
