Trivia

One of the coffins in Malcom's nest (specifically the green marble one) has "Gott ist tot" written repeatedly around it's side. "Gott ist tot" is German for "God is dead". See more »

Goofs

Forty minutes into the action, Sookie is at her grandmother's kitchen table, talking about her feelings towards Bill. She has long bangs and her dark roots are showing. Her Grannie mentions her "ability" and when the camera goes back to Sookie, she has shorter bangs, platinum blond hair and a softer makeup. Even the lighting looks all different from the previous framing. This look stays until she goes to Bill's house, peers into his window and then turns back: then, her black roots and longer bangs appear again. See more »

Quotes

Tara Thornton: [after confessing about sleeping with Sam] Y'know what? He barks in his sleep.

Orgy and Sex of Vampires and Humans
19 September 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Bill protects Sookie telling the other vampires that she belongs to him. The vampires tell her that blood of virgin is delicious and they have an orgy among them and the human Jerry in front of Sookie. Meanwhile Jason has a dissatisfactory sex with Dawn; Sookie loses her virginity with Bill in her dreams; and Tara has one night stand with Sam and then she breaks with her alcoholic mother.

"Mine" is a disappointing episode of "True Blood". I expected to see a traditional vampire movie and the idea of widely open vampire existence is interesting. However, the major concern of Alan Ball in this show seems to be the eroticism associated to a blending of "Twilight" with "Angel", with the romance of Sookie and the Bill, a vampire that really recalls Angel. Further, like in "Six Feet Under", the author seems to have the interest in pleasing the gay community with the character Lafayette. The joke with the Starbucks coming to Marthaville is hilarious. The lines and the wise advices of Adele Stackhouse are the best moments of this show. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Minha' ("Mine")
