'True Blood' Recap: Eric Returns, Bon Temps Turns Against Sam And Andy

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.

Is a True Blood Musical in the Works?

Remember back in January when rumors of a possible "True Blood" movie were floating about? Well, grab your dancing shoes and get ready to do the Bon Temps Boogaloo because it looks like we might be getting a musical instead!

Per the AP, at the "True Blood" season premiere this past Tuesday night in Hollywood, composer Nathan Barr, who has written the instrumental scores for the series' entire seven seasons, said that True Blood: The Musical is indeed in the works.

"This was something that I pitched to HBO and [series creator] Alan Ball," said Barr, adding that the musical will revolve around protagonist, telepath, and waitress Sookie Stackhouse, portrayed in the HBO series by Anna Paquin. But, Barr added, after seven seasons of twists, turns, and characters for Sookie, it's proven a challenge to trim the saga down.

"I think we're really going to try to return to the roots of the show,

Most of the regulars appear in this new trailer for Season 7, the last hurrah of HBO's "True Blood." It arrives in just a few more weeks with a premiere directed by Stephen Moyer, and while we're not expecting a full return to the show's previous glory, we do have hopes that it will end on a high note.

The series follows waitress and part-faerie Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who can hear people’s thoughts, and vampires Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård). Created by Alan Ball, the show is based on the bestselling "Sookie Stackhouse" novels by Charlaine Harris.

True Blood Season 7 Spoilers: First Two Episode Descriptions Revealed

We are now a little over three weeks away from the True Blood Season 7 premiere and HBO is starting to spoon feed new details about the upcoming final season.

The latest bit of information from HBO falls squarely under the True Blood Season 7 spoilers category. The pay network has revealed the official synopsis for the first two episodes of the season, 'Jesus Gonna Be Here' and 'I Found You.'

When True Blood Season 6 wrapped up, the fate of Eric Northman was left hanging in the balance. Will Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) be in Season 7? All indications based on remarks made by HBO prior to the season entering production point toward yes, and the second synopsis below confirms that Pam hasn't forgotten about her missing maker. Heck, even the episode #72 title 'I Found You' points toward the discovery of Eric, though I suspect he won't be in a good place physically or mentally when found.

"United States of Tara" Recap 302: "To be Young and Gay in Fairytown, Homohio!"

Hello, and welcome to the recap of the second episode of Season Three of United States of Tara! I'm very excited to have the opportunity to do a regular recapping gig, and after Brent's venom-fueled season review and Michael's poison-pixel recap of episode one, the Powers That Be decided to change things up and have the recap done by someone who isn't a total Tara hater. (I keed, I keed!)

So, when last we saw the Gregson clan, Tara had decided to go back to college, having dropped out a few credits shy of graduation following a suicide attempt that was supposed to be a big secret but that Charmaine has apparently blabbed all over town.

Thanks to gay neighbor Ted pulling a few strings with some guy he had sex with, Tara is off to her first day at Kansas State at Overland Park as Marshall the filmmaker records the big day.

Swingtown: Watchdog Group Applauds TV Show Cancellation

Though the CBS 1970's series didn't maintain a very large audience, the viewers Swingtown did attract are very devoted. Many people have expressed great disappointment over the cancellation of the series after only one short season of 13 episodes. One particular group of people however couldn't be happier about Swingtown's demise and wants to take credit for it.

Set in the Summer of 1976, Swingtown follows the changing lives of three families in suburban Chicago. The show stars Molly Parker, Jack Davenport, Grant Show, Lana Parrilla, Josh Hopkins, Miriam Shor, Shanna Collins, Aaron Christian Howles, Brittany Robertson, Michael Rady, Nick Benson, and Kate Norby.

Critical and viewer reception for Swingtown was mixed and the pilot debuted to fewer than 8.6 million viewers and a 2.5/7 rating/share in the 18-49 demographic. The ratings for subsequent episodes dropped from there and CBS eventually shifted the series to a little-watched Saturday night timeslot.

Swingtown: CBS (Finally) Officially Cancels the 1970s TV Show

At the start of today's television press tour session, CBS president Nina Tassler announced something that we've all known for months. Swingtown isn't coming back for a second season.
