“True Blood”: Dog Days are Over

7 July 2014 6:32 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Good grief, are they just going to kill everyone?! With the chief goal of the final season of True Blood clearly being to leave as few characters alive to see the cast party as possible (fewer drink tickets!), this week’s episode tidily dispatched with a central castmember, a longtime recurring character, and about a dozen others. Plus it featured Eric in a fabulous James Woods wig circa 1986. Let’s dig in!

We start the episode in an ashram in Los Angeles, where hotties are doing yoga. One of them turns out to be Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp). Ohhhh boy.

Over in France, Pam (Kristin Bauer Van Straten) asks Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) how long he’s been sick. He says a month. Pam says she felt Tara meet the true death, so I guess that confirms it once and for all. Eric says that he has finally given up, mostly because of Sylvie. »

'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 »

Interview: Amelia Rose Blaire Talks True Blood

6 July 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Joining an established, well-known community may initially be an unnerving job, especially for anyone unfamiliar with the society’s official way of life. This is certainly the case for one of the newest vampires, Willa Burrell, on the hit HBO mystery fantasy drama series, ‘True Blood,’ as well as the actress who portrays her, Amelia Rose Blaire. The gifted and resourceful star, who first stepped into the role during the show’s sixth season last summer, reprised her character in the current and final last season of the Emmy Award-winning series. Blaire, who was at first daunted by working with some of the actors she respects the most, and being integrated into  [ Read More ]

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 »

Is a True Blood Musical in the Works?

18 June 2014 5:43 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

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.
