‘True Blood’ Episode 4.5 Review ‘Me and the Devil’

25 July 2011 10:06 AM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

Finally! Last night’s episode of True Blood gave fans the relief they’ve been waiting for, the much-talked-about-but-never-happening Eric and Sookie hookup. Unfortunately, there are some clouds on the horizon, with Gran’s omen, the threat of more witches, the relief will be short lived. The opening scene was more action packed than usual with Tommy (Marshall Allman) finally killing his father Joe Lee (Cooper Huckabee) out of self-defense and accidentally killing his mother in the cross fire. We all know that if a shifter murders a member of their own family they have the power to shift into humans. There are certainly some interesting story lines to explore with Tommy. It also looks like he and Sam (Sam Trammell) have more in common, although no one really cares. Creepy baby Mikey is still at it. Arlene (Carrie Preston) and Terry (Todd Lowe) decided to perform an exorcism on their house like in Poltergeist. »

Recap: 'True Blood' - 'Me and The Devil'

24 July 2011 10:44 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When we last left Jason “Ghost Daddy” Stackhouse, he had three sets of super-duper DNA doin’ a line dance in his veins: fairy, vampire and were-panther. Which mythical blood plasma will win? My money is on fairy, but at the moment it doesn’t matter, because Tommy Merlotte is in immediate danger, y’all! The young shape-shifter is busy ex-caping from that evil, dog-fighting-ring-runnin’ Joe Lee! Fight, Tommy, fight! Turn into something horrible! Tommy stays human, but he still defends himself quite effectively. In fact, Tommy clocks Joe Lee right hard! On his hade! In a way that makes folks turn dead! And, »

‘True Blood,’ Season 4, Episode 5, ‘Me and the Devil’: TV Recap

24 July 2011 7:00 PM, PDT | Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal | See recent Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal news »

HBO Lauren Bowles in “True Blood

Poor Tommy is still getting jerked around (literally) by his evil father Joe Lee when finally, on the verge of being strangled to death, he fights back. Sorry Mickens family, but Tommy is just doing what viewers have wanted to do to you for two seasons. In another creepy wooded clearing, Marnie tells Jesus, Tara and Lafayette she was “taken over” by the spirit. The old “I-was-possessed” defense doesn’t work with vampires, Lafayette »

True Blood Bites: "Me and the Devil" Episode

24 July 2011 7:00 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Even though this episode mostly felt like filler, the heart-stopping final scene makes this week's episode of True Blood so worth it. There's also a visit from Godric, a couple of murders, and more witch mayhem. But it has to be Alexander Skarsgard who's this week's Mvp yet again - his portrayal of "new" Eric is so irresistibly wholesome; he continues to surprise me and make me love him even more. Let's get down to business and chat about the episode - I'm as excited to hear about your thoughts as I am about next week's episode. To break it all down into superlatives, just read more. Most justified character deaths: In self-defense, Tommy gets the better of Joe Lee, killing him and accidentally killing his mother too. Panicked, Tommy brings the dead bodies to Sam for help. Though they're almost caught by Andy, Tommy cleverly shifts into a crocodile, »

True Blood Bites: "I'm Alive and on Fire" Episode

18 July 2011 7:58 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

This week's True Blood contains so many defined abs that I can't even start to count them. Actual developments include Jason finally escaping from the most awful situation in all of Louisiana, Sam getting in deep with his new love interest, the witches gaining power, and Eric being naked and still wonderfully sweet. While this episode is really about setting up a lot of things, I'm excited about where those things are going. If you're ready to talk about this week's episode, just read more. Best Drunk Acting: Amnesiac Eric is maybe the most adorable character on TV, ever. Turns out that Claudine's fairy blood makes Eric behave like a drunk person, and after he pinches Sookie's butt repeatedly, he runs off to go swimming. Once the sun starts burning him, Sookie brings him home and takes care of him, but refuses to stay with him when he requests it. »

True Blood Review: Wiccan Awesome!

17 July 2011 8:00 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

You drank the whole fairy. Now go to your room!

Oh, Eric, you adorable, innocent, cursed viking of a vampire, you. While the actions of this deliciously drunk blood sucker were cuter than ever on "I'm Alive and on Fire," think about the ramifications that are befalling those trying to help him:

Sookie has lied to Bill, Alcide has revealed to Debbie that he's been to Bon Temps and Pam has lost her face. Is seeing Eric more vulnerable and less shirtless than ever really worth all this trouble? Various characters might not share your answer to that question, female fans.

There have been few funnier scenes in True Blood history than the opening shots of Eric slapping Sookie's (beautiful) butt, and the subsequent back-and-forth between him in the water and a naked Alcide on shore, alongside Sookie.

Later, an interesting point was raised: is this the real Eric? When he eventually regains his memory, »

‘True Blood,’ Season 4, Episode 4, ‘I’m Alive and On Fire’: TV Recap

17 July 2011 7:00 PM, PDT | Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal | See recent Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal news »

HBO Kristin Bauer van Straten and Fiona Shaw on “True Blood.”

Fairy blood apparently does weird things to people. And we thought V was addictive. Eric is giddy and drunk, pinching Sookie’s posterior and giddily running around the front yard. King Bill is interrogating Pam at Fangtasia about Eric’s whereabouts. It’s treason to lie to a king, remember. He tells Pam she’s not supposed to think, she’s supposed to “follow protocol.” Um, you’re talking to Pam. »

True Blood: The Complete Third Season Blu-ray and DVD Arrives May 31st

With vampires, shapeshifters, and werewolves, the seductive world of True Blood continues to grow each season, and the thrill ride continues when True Blood: The Complete Third Season comes out on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download from HBO Home Entertainment on May 31, 2011.

Season three finds Bill kidnapped and Sookie heading to Mississippi to find him. There she becomes entangled in a world ruled by a powerful Vampire King and the werewolves who do his bidding. »

Retro Review 1981: The Funhouse

18 March 2011 1:22 AM, PDT | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

The Funhouse (Original Release Date: 13 March 1981)

The Funhouse isn't the movie I wanted it to be. I mean that as no offense to the movie. It's just that for much of my life, I've been trying to find a specific movie I saw as a child. Every few years or so, I will think I've found it, only to watch my find and be disappointed when it turns out not to be the one I hoped it would be. The Funhouse was one of the two most recent candidates for this lost movie from my childhood. The other, Hell Night, is also a 1981 release. (I've peeked ahead and determined both that I've seen Hell Night before and that it isn't the one I'm looking for, either.)

A horror fan would probably classify both Funhouse and Hell Night as entries in the “Teenkill” subgenre. From the title alone you can probably »
