We are huge True Blood fans!! And as fans we have a few…er…bones to pick. This series has the opportunity for major stiletto- heeled a$$ kicking, quip-flinging, and general hotness, so we are more than a little disappointed when our TrueBlood heroes turn into TrueDuds.
*Warning: Spoilers and language may be present.*
I know, I know! I’m catching up. Sunday will be episode 3 and I will be timely in posting. 1 point for me
Sookie: Why the all the sweaters? Is it really necessary to put one on every time you come home? Isn’t it, like 1,000 degrees in Louisiana? And while we’re at it, what’s up with the creepy paper you sleep next to? Put it in a drawer already. Figures, though, you would “stumble” upon a handsome stranger while being late to work. You’ve gone through everyone else in the town, I guess you need some NewBlood. 7 points for leaving Arlene stranded at work again, and admitting a stranger into your house after EVERYTHING YOU HAVE BEEN THROUGH
Arlene: Keep it coming! I’m liking your savvy. “Organic means you play the fancy piano at church.” Yes, girl. Sock it to those snotts! Glad you rescued your man from a sticky situation, but I’m not OK with lying to a pregnant woman about her dead husband. 1 point (You did try to be gentle…)
Andy: Those little girls are just running little fairy circles around you!! I love it. Cheers to them and for you for being brave enough to ask for help. Seriously now, stop complaining. 1 point
Tara: I’m still waiting for you to kick some butt, but maybe you are learning compassion. Also, maybe you will be the strong arm our Pam needs. Is her boo-hooing reminding you of anyone…ah hem…Tara? 0 points
Pam: I will allow you touching moments from time to time. But we need you… 0 points (for now)
Sam: REALLY? The worst luck. You lost Emma after having her for a day. A DAY!! And who else would have spies in the bushes outside their trailer. Ugh. 5 points
Emma: Honey, I’m glad you are having fun with Lafayette, but show some respect for your mamma. A tear? Anything? 5 points
Nicole: It is not OK to OUT someone. Ever. Period. Get out of the bushes. 10 points
Alcide: Noooo! You have been in charge for 10 minutes and you are already acting crazy. Use your words. 5 points
Jason: “That makes me a Fairy Prince!” You poor, sweet, thang… Let me comfort you… 0 points
Eric: Disguises, digging out bullets with broken beer bottles, hovering outside a teenager’s window with sexy eyes, yes to all of it! 0 points
Truest Dud of the second episode goes to Nicole. Just because your parents did amazing things doesn’t mean you get to force other people into your way of thinking. Not a good first impression.
The Lamest Costume Award goes to Lilith and Co. for the RIDICULOUS merkins. I dare you to un-see them now….
We wouldn’t be the Work Life Balance Protection Agency without sending you home with a motivational goody or two. Here’s yours.
