True Blood's Lauren Bowles on Season 7 Wedding Bells, Chances for a Movie

45 minutes ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

With people dying left and right (and occasionally naked) on True Blood‘s final season, it’s becoming harder to predict just how it’ll all end — and Lauren Bowles is relishing every minute of her front-row seat to Bon Temps’ demise.

Speaking with TVLine below, Bowles reflects on Holly’s three-week stint at Fangtasia, then does her best to tease the rest of Season 7, including my personal favorite question: Will someone say “I do” before the series ends? Plus, she discusses the possibility of a True Blood »

'True Blood' Season 7, Episode 4 Preview

7 July 2014 7:46 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The end is nigh for Sookie (Anna Paquin) and the rest of our favorite Bon Temps residents as HBO draws True Blood to a close with Season 7. Last night marked the closing of an era with "Fire in the Hole", which found Sookie attempting to take down the H-Vamps, while Vince (Brett Rickaby) and his vigilante posse posed an equally dangerous threat. We have the full episode recap detailing all the thrills and drama from last night, along with a first look at next week's new episode "Death is Not the End", which airs Sunday July 13.

True Blood The Final Season: Episode 7.03 - "Fire in the Hole" Recap

'True Blood' Recap: Sarah Newlin Returns, Rip Alcide

6 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Alicide died at the hands of the Bon Temps vigilantes and Pam convinced Eric to go after Sarah Newlin with her in True Blood’s “Fire in the Hole.”

Sookie And Bill Try To Track Hep-v Vamps

In Bon Temps, Sookie (Anna Paquin) put her master plan with Bill (Stephen Moyer) in motion: she was going to drink his blood (after last season’s transfusion, the blood she already had in her system is no longer adequate to alert Bill of her being in danger), and then sit in the woods as bait for the Hep-v vamps. Sookie would allow herself to be taken, just like the others, and Bill would then be able to locate them and rescue Sookie, Arlene (Carrie Preston), Holly (Lauren Bowles) and Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) from becoming Hep-v vamp dinner.

Bill isn’t all too thrilled with the plan, but he uses the time to »

Expectation vs reality: Sherlock, Hannibal and 5 more surprise TV hits

5 July 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Some television shows feel like they're going to be smash hits before anyone's seen a frame of footage; usually because of the writers working on it, the network's reputation with its genre, or the popularity of the actors involved.

Other programmes even feel like they're simply too big to fail; such as HBO's Game of Thrones and AMC's The Walking Dead, which also benefit from having rich source material to mine and a ready-made, evangelical audience.

But what about the TV shows that felt like bad ideas before they'd aired - or even during their debut season - yet managed to overcome widespread uncertainties and grow into well-regarded programmes it's hard to imagine we were ever unsure about?

Let's take a look at some recent examples of popular TV shows that didn't initially feel like they'd work, but proved the doubters wrong...

Carrie Preston Breaks Down True Blood's Exploding Vampire, "De-Fellatio"

30 June 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We need to talk about what happened to Carrie Preston's True Blood character. Arlene Fowler Bellefleur successfully—well, almost successfully—negotiated her way out of imprisonment. Pleading with one of her vampire captors, who just so happened to be a former teacher to her kids, everything was looking up for the feisty redhead. That is until the Hep-v infected compassionate vampire fed on her and, well, exploded. "The way they did that effect, they built an inflatable Betty...what they would do is they would deflate it really, really quickly and they would pump blood into it and all the blood would come pouring out," Preston told E! News. Yep, that wasn't a special effect. No green screen »

But first, check out a trailer for next week's all-new episode "Fire in the Hole".

True Blood The Final Season: Episode 7.02 - 'I Found You' Recap

“True Blood”: St. Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

30 June 2014 6:48 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Well that was an improvement, at least! When we last left True Blood, Sookie was hosting a psychic reading of Our Town where all the dialog has been replaced with “vamp slut danger whore.” We pick up where we left off, but from a very different vantage point. Let’s dig in!

Things kick off with Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) strolling into a flowery hacienda, where he unbuttons his shirt and fixes a cocktail. Atta vamp! For some reason Jason (Ryan Kwanten) appears, saying that he has been looking for him. Okay, this is clearly a dream sequence. Eric shakes a martini (shirt still open), which Jason chugs before saying that while he digs Violet, “I can’t get you outta my head.” Na-na-na, na-na-na-nice Kylie reference from the Aussie! Two points.

Jason takes Eric’s belt off – oh my! – and Eric pins him to a chair. But soon Jason and »

29 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Sookie, Jason, Alcide, Andy and Sam took a road trip to learn more about the Hep-v vampires while Arlene struggled for a way out of Fangtasia in True Blood's "I Found You."

True Blood "I Found You" Recap

The episode began with Jason (Ryan Kwanten) having a sexy dream about vampire Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) – a side effect of having drunk Eric’s blood last season. Just as things start getting truly steamy, Jason wakes up with a jolt in a church.

Outside the church, Sookie (Anna Paquin) suggests to Andy (Chris Bauer) that they track where the Hep-v infected vamps came from by investigating the dead girl Sookie stumbled upon in the woods the other night. Andy, desperate for a lead to find Holly (Lauren Bowles), agrees, and tells Sookie and Alcide (Joe Manganiello) to meet him at the station. As for everybody else, Sam (Sam Trammell) encourages them »

Recap: 'True Blood' - 'I Found You'

29 June 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Despite all evidence to the contrary, “True Blood” would like to give you what you want from it. This is not a Brechtian experiment in raising awareness of the audience’s desire to have its feelings manipulated in the name of “entertainment” by frustrating and disappointing us at every turn; at its best, it’s a robust sexy horror comedy made by HBO pros. But it’s been having trouble being scary and funny—intentionally, anyway—because of creative exhaustion, or the contempt that’s bred by familiarity, or because Alan Ball has left the building. Or maybe its priorities are just screwed up. “I Found You” opens with a languorously paced scene in which Jason Stackhouse tracks down Eric, standing in front of a window with his shirt open, as if practicing his moodiness. “Why’d you come here, Jason?” asks Eric “I came because I knew you’d ask that f***ing question, »

'True Blood' Season Seven Premiere Recap: Hep-v Vampires Kill Tara, Jessica Protects Adilyn

22 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

True Blood kicked off its seventh and final season Sunday night with Hep-v infected vamps attacking Bon Temps, killing Tara, and Pam traveling the world searching for Eric in “Jesus Gonna Be Here.”

R.I.P Tara

The entire town has gathered at Bellefleur’s Bar and Grill for the ‘One vampire for every human’ mixer, where they are promptly attacked by a group of Hep-v infected vampires. Chaos erupts, with Sam (Sam Trammell) and Alcide (Joe Manganiello) turning into their animal forms to help Bill (Stephen Moyer) and the other vamps fight off the crazed attack. In the chaos, the Hep-v vamps take Arlene (Carrie Preston), Holly (Lauren Bowles) and Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) hostage, among others, and kill Tara (Rutina Wesley), who was trying to protect her mother.

As suddenly as they appeared, the Hep-v vamps take off with their hostages, leaving the wounded and lost to take refuge inside the bar. »

Blu-ray Review: Recent TV Releases Include ‘True Detective,’ ‘Masters of Sex’

22 June 2014 12:42 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “Game of Thrones” is over and you’ve already binged “Orange is the New Black,” what are you supposed to do now? There are a few interesting new programs this season – FX’s “Tyrant” & “The Strain,” HBO’s “The Leftovers,” CBS’s “Extant,” and a few more – but it’s also a great time to catch up what you may have missed with new Blu-ray and DVD releases. There are five TV-to-Blu-ray releases this month that might warrant a look.

The top of the pile is also the best program of 2014 to date, a show that has really redefined the year in that it’s already used as a watermark (“Sure, Fargo and The Americans were great but they were no True Detective.”) With fantastic performances from Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, HBO has wasted no time in getting the wildly acclaimed “True Detective” on Blu-ray and DVD a »

'True Blood': What to Expect From the Season 7 Premiere

22 June 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

HBO’s True Blood premieres its seventh and final season on Sunday, and things have changed in Bon Temps. With the six-month time jump at the end of last season, viewers learned that gangs of Hep V-infected vampires have been ravaging small towns since the virus was spread through the world’s vampire population. Newly elected mayor Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) presents a controversial solution — every human not carrying the virus exchanging one vampire’s protection for that vampire drinking their blood. But a social to promote the policy at what was Merlotte’s, now owned by Arlene (Carrie Preston) and

True Blood: Tears as Stars Say Emotional Goodbye to the Show

True Blood vampires may cry tears of blood, but cast members on HBO's long-running horror hit wept the real salty thing as they read the script for the show's final episode. "It kind of snuck up on me," Anna Paquin told People at Tuesday's premiere of the show's seventh and final season at Hollywood's Chinese Theater. Paquin, 31, admitted she was one of several cast members who found themselves overcome by emotions during the final script run-through, but because the show is still shooting, she had more pressing matters on her mind.
