You know we really missed out with TOS being in that decade. I would have loved to have seen them pair Kirk with a woman like Lwaxana or Pam.

Re: True Blood SEASON 7

It just hit me with the final upon us, will they be tying in the scenes of Bill as Underground Railroad Hero? Will there be some parallel? I'm thinking Bill gets cured and then when just about to fall into Sookie's arms he pushes her away.. "no Sookie. I must not. So many others still need the True cure. I can no more stay with you and satisfy my carnal needs then I could turn my face from those who were oppressed and seek the homefires over their salvation." Stirring music.

Either there will be a parallel or we will hear nothing of it. IF there is a parallel it will be totally lame, a lame idea foisted upon us. But if there isn't it will be even worse because it means we endured those sepia bullshit scenes and it wasn't even someone's good idea at the time, it was just filler. Filler to make us feel MORE BAD that Bill was maybe gonna die.

Re: True Blood SEASON 7

I am in turns bitter about or amused by the mechanisms show runners will try to pull to "make" the audience feel something for the characters that they feel are the important ones. It is almost like they are offended when the audience embraces characters that were meant to be background and/or villains.

Show runners did the same thing with "Lost". They bent over backwards and jumped through hoops to try to get us to care about Jack and Kate when the story resided in every character other than those two. In "True Blood" I am drawn to Pam and Eric and several of the supporting characters. I hate Bill and actively dislike Sookie. Yet somehow the people in charge thing they can change my mind by feeding me needless filler.

Not sure whether I am bitter or amused at this moment.

Re: True Blood SEASON 7

Totally agree Shanndee! As to Lost, Jack and Kate made me want to abandon that (in retrospect very stupid) show, I could not stand them they were so.. NOTHING. Just big nothings. All I wanted to do was laugh at Sawyer's assholness and puzzle over Locke and enjoy Hurley. But Jack (for whom I cannot think of a single personality trait) and Kate who was totally unbelievable as a bad girl filled up the hours.

Re: True Blood SEASON 7

Thank God at least one of them died. I was *really* getting worried that I was right about Bill.

I am a little confused about the Tara storyline though. What was that all about and how was it resolved?

Re: True Blood SEASON 7

You know.. i was a huge fan of the show and its first season was just plain brilliant and something that had me glued to the screen.

That has lessened season by season until i just watched out of habit and for the few characters that were still interesting.

Season 7 just left me cold and the episodes are here to watch but i just couldn't bring up the necessary interest to hit play. So judging from online reviews and comments here i don't believe i have missed much or that the show has somehow turned good again.

Shame.. the setting and the characters seemed so interesting in the beginning but the whole show got dragged down bit by bit.

Re: True Blood SEASON 7

Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Awful. Simply awful. This great show turned into a soap in the last episode, and a self-parody in the last 5 minutes.

At first, when the scenes started projecting into the future, I thought we really were going to see a Six Feet Under type ending. But alas. Shame, Alan Ball....

The only bright spots of this episode were Eric and Pam.
Love those two, and I will miss those two. Here's to you Eric.

Re: True Blood SEASON 7

So, is it implied that the entire Tru Blood operation was carried out by this Mr. Gus and his ~10 henchmen and that all of them traveled to USA to catch Sarah Newlin? Are there no more Yakuza in Japan who might still be interested in catching Sarah Newlin?

Pam and Eric parts were good as usual. Everything else was boring and not worth watching.

Re: True Blood SEASON 7

I was happy. All the to be expected soap but I thought Jessica and Hoyt were touching and Sookie doing in Bill was obvious but touching. Obvious as in WHY did he want her to de-fairy herself when a quick stab with a stick would do the trick?

Also, I could never break a shovel like that with one kick, does she have super powers of strength I did not notice before?

Though obviously I would have preferred 50 minutes of a one hour show to be about Eric and Pam we did get some cool stuff with them. Yes.

THE BEST CHARACTERS.



"CASH ONLY. GET THE FUCK OUT!"

These are Pam's final words. This is awesome.

Re: True Blood SEASON 7

AND I think it was rather touching? In a bad place? That Sookie does in Bill in the exact spot where he crawled out of the grave naked and covered in dirt and fucked her for the very first time.

Circle of life.

The finale, like the past few seasons of the show was pretty dismal.

I liked it. Liked the whole season... much more than the last few. And, as everyone has said already, Eric + Pam = awesome.

He wanted her to de-fairy herself so she would cease to be vampire catnip. If she no longer had fairy blood she would be free to live a normal human life without vampire interference.

At least the annoying one did meet the true death. That made me happy. And pam and Eric finally acting like Pam and Eric when they took out the Yakuza.

Not great, but better than I feared.

Always was a controlling prick.

YES so fast, so furious

Much better than all that "oh guns are pointed at us, we must stand like stunned mullets" deal.
Not great, but better than I feared.
Oh yeah it was heaps better than it could have been.

This season had at least one great Pam and Eric ep and was still better than I remember the orgy season being, or the werepanther season, or the witch season. But really I want all the Pam and Eric scenes on one disc.
