kaoi saidI thought it was on par with the previous 3 seasons. It's not like the show is known for its great writing or acting, it's the worst thing on t.v. and we all keep watching
Now having Kevin Alejandro on it just gives it a little something more ;)
Oh c'mon...it most certainly is not the worst thing on TV...it's a dirtier, but more fascinating Vampire story than that bullshit pretty people "Vampire Diaries" crap...and it's light years more interesting that the mundane rehashing of crime shows that are so flippin' numerous, they've gotten ridiculous: yes, I'm talking about "Criminal Minds," "Law & Orders," "CSI's," and all the other fucking shows that make living so very, very sad!
Frankly, I did like the first episode...and I saw the second online and liked it as well.
I was happy that Sam didn't kill Tommy, but it sucked that Tommy is now that old bigot's surrogate son!!!
People, chill...Alcide is in Season 4!
I didn't mind the shift for Tara: remember that the whole point was she was starting out a new life. She's always been angry and strong...so female UFC makes perfect sense. She's always had a little bit of lesbian yearning in her: remember when she became slightly infatuated with Sookie for just a moment in Season 1 when she realized that Sookie and Jason look alike?
I like the witches...and in the second episode, I think you are beginning to see the next trial and tribulation of Sam...a guy who is WAY too cute to be single and suffering the pangs of unrequited love. ;) LOL
Arlene is annoying me! I think they really should've shifted her to a much more secondary character...as in "Waitress #3?" LOL She just whines ALL the time.
Andy & Terry Bellfleur were more than enough Bellfleurs for the series...we really didn't need "Portia" to enter the mix. And how in the hell is Andy hooked on V?
I actually like Jessica...and I like Hoyt too...but I think the two of them need to be disconnected. Hoyt is the nice, secondary character...Jessica is the young Vampire with a nasty streak! I can't really blame her for cheating on Hoyt...did you see that "fang banger" guy who came on to her? WOW!
I kinda like the way the Jason & the Werepanther storyline is unfolding. It's pretty cool...and I think is going to be very interesting. And even though he's an inbred hillbilly redneck with a face that looks like he's been beaten on a time or two, I do like Felton...he's evil of course, but he's still pretty cute!
Love Eric...and Pam as well! I like that it was Eric who bought Sookie's house.
Learning what happened to Sophie-Anne was kinda cool too...don't piss off Nan Flanagan! LOL
So far, I really like the fourth season...I like it a bit better than I liked Season 2, though not quite as much as I liked season 1 & 3. I think some of the storylines have to be whittled down a little bit (ie. Arlene, Hoyt, Hoyt's Mother, the Bellfleurs!!!), and I'm hoping we'll see Claudine again (in her glory) and Claude as well (non-troll-like)...
On the subject of the Faeries...I think Maab may wind up being an excellent villain in this season...but remember what she said when you dislike the fact that the Faeries obviously are more troll-like than we originally thought: the Vampires drove them onto this new, desolate plain! It makes perfect sense that their appearance would be mostly illusion.
Also, on Sookie not using her power more frequently...frankly I hope she doesn't. That was one of the great unravellings that happened with "Heroes"- too many people with abilities...not enough time to put them altogether.
"True Blood" may be nearing that when you consider that there is one fairy, two shifters, three witches and one were-panther if you just count the staff at Merlottes and their nearest and dearest!
