I was watching "Columbo" on MeTV last night. Then again, I wouldn't have watched "True Blood" anywho.

I just finished watching the last season of True Blood, and I didn't like it nearly as much as the previous seasons.  The show is starting to run out of steam.

Last night, this became only the third HBO drama that I've quit before it actually ended. Horrible, abysmal, gratuitously stupid television.

I'm still watching, but they made it REALLY weird last season. I think they are trying to get it back to where it was pre-season 5, and I think they will.  That said, I have to think 7 is the last one. And then I'll be sad. I think even bad True Blood is more enjoyable that most things on TV.

I thought it was that and I only watched the first season. Is her brother supposed to be mentally defective?

This.

Still, would've picked it if the basketball game was my only other option.

I think his penis starved his brain of blood, causing minor brain damage.

Trueblood and the NBA are both outside the neckbeard dweeb community that makes up the bulk of fark.

Exactly. Literally everyone I talked to about it agreed that there was way too many story arcs with the minor characters. How hard is that for the writers to see? Hopefully they have recognized that and have fixed it.

Looking forward to the season.

PLEASE GET NAKED JESSICA!!!!!

The only reason to watch that show is the boobies, and you can just download the clips off the Internet.

HBO either cancels a series too early or lets it drag on until it runs out of steam, with the exception of The Wire.

wait... when did we start talking about game of thrones?

kidding.  I just watched all three seasons over the last six days and finished the rains of castamere episode about an hour and a half ago and im still feeling sick about it... of course knowing what was going to happen made me queasy the entire episode

The Brains: Werewolf bush.


Not to mention one of the most spectacular racks and an ass that makes angels masturbate.  I'd google to find out who that chick was but I'm lazy.

Okay, I'm gonna need photographic proof of this ass.

I still watched it...but I think it jumped the shark with Billith and totally ignoring the books (Sookie-Eric romance).

Worst episode was 1000% better than the best episode of True Blood.
 
2013-06-17 10:30:34 PM
A naked Anna Paquin is more interesting than some guys throwing around a ball.
 
2013-06-17 10:30:58 PM
what is show about?
 
2013-06-17 10:32:59 PM
The show is still kind of worth watching, just so I can better enjoy the snark- and GIF-filled episode recaps over at io9.

Meh.  When Deborah Ann Woll shows some naughty bits then I'll get excited.

I was working on my cousin's computer last night, so I watched it for the first time ever when she did while I was waiting for updates to finish (so I could install more updates!). That was one hot werewolf. Actually both of those lady wolves looked very nice. It occurred to me that for them, "doing it doggy style" would have an entirely different meaning.
 
2013-06-17 10:50:06 PM
It's the show with a couple dozen different stories at any given time, where very little happens in most of the episodes because you only get 3 -5 minutes of any one plot, and everybody is some kind of mystical creature, even the ones that think they're human and haven't showed any signs of being anything but human, and lots of nakedness.  What's not to love?

He's always been on the dumb side but last season he hit his head on a tree and started seeing his dead parents and hearing voices in his head telling him to kill all the vampires. Either it's brain damage or something is making him act like that. I'm thinking we'll find out the reason later this season.

I am so sick of this show. I think I might just stop watching it now.

Last season I found myself complaining to my friends about:

* Sookie
* Tara
* Motherfarking Jason (seriously will someone please just kill him already?)
* Frank Sobotka (er whatever the hell his name is on this show, Sheriff Belfour?)
* Lafayette
* All the god damn werewolves (seriously stop it! I hope they get run over by cars)
* For that matter Sam and his stupid girlfriend
* Jessica
* Pam (again. Dead. NOW.)

Everyone has turned into such whiny biatches it's annoying.


The story has gotten too weird, the characters too emo, there's way too many plotlines involving mundane uncharismatic characters; they could probably cut the plotlines in half and put out 6 episode seasons for an immediate boost of quality. But HBO doesn't operate that way.
 
2013-06-17 11:15:44 PM
Can you blame viewers? The show jumped the shark 500 times over the last two seasons. The metaphors and themes have become increasingly heavy handed. The show is littered with painfully annoying characters (e.g. Tara). The main characters -- Bill and Sookie -- are among the least interesting on the show.

I could go on and on.
 
2013-06-17 11:17:43 PM
Still waiting for pics of the ass that would make angels masturbate.

Don't watch the show, so I need a little help here.
 
2013-06-17 11:20:13 PM
They haven't promoted the season opening as much as they have in years past.  I didn't know it had started again.

Can you name a televised sport (other than the Olympics or sumo) that isn't?
 
2013-06-17 11:37:57 PM
I thought it was pretty decent, it looks like we're going some interesting places, and quickly.

The actress in question is either Jamie Gray Hyder, or Kelly Overton. The latter seems to have better pictures available. Good luck.
 
2013-06-17 11:55:13 PM
That's a tough choice - both terrible options.

I'll take C: turn the TV off.
 
2013-06-17 11:59:50 PM
Is there a point where the Winchester brothers kill everybody and the show ends?
 
2013-06-18 12:06:48 AM
I was a huge True Blood fan when it was Sexy Deep South Vampires. I stopped watching after last season's premiere, when it became apparent that every single character on the show was going to be some sort of supernatural being.

It's a lot easier to weave a ton of weak plotlines than it is to put out a single, solid plot. And after finally getting around to watching True Blood, I have to say, the writers really suck. Supernatural's way better. Better characters, better writing, better story.

THANK YOU. It was Jamie. I couldn't find out who that chick was.  She has one of the hottest bodies I have ever seen.

GIS is severely lacking in nekkid pics of that hottie.

I agree the show is kind of going meh, but we watched the NBA finals and dvr'd True Blood, Nurse Jackie, and Mad Men. How do they take account for that?
 
2013-06-18 12:48:48 AM
I haven't watched since the second episode, because premium cable isn't cheap around these parts. But apparently Christopher Meloni is in the show now? I'm guessing his character is just Elliot Stabler with fangs. He was dressed the same and had the same damn haircut.

Yep.

I don't think I would like the slow plot movement if I was only watching one ep at a time though.

She looks good now, but there is a fat girl in there waiting to get out.
