    i dont understand why werewolves are threatening

    a man with a gun is much more dangerous than a wolf, even a large clever wolf

    their shifting seems to afford them nothing

    Well, to an extent, but the time it takes for someone to draw their gun, aim, unsafety and fire someone with a knife can close something like 9 feet. Wolves are even harder to shoot than a guy with a knife.

    Lots of wolves are an even bigger issue.

    If the question is why they don'tstayhuman and use guns instead...

    I dunno... Dogs don't like loud noises?

    I never got why Sam just doesn't visit a fucking zoo. Bam, Siberian Tiger mode activate.

    Dear God let us not go down the road of Sam and the Zoo again. Every season someone brings it up, bitches about Sam's shitty shifting choices, and its 10 pages of what he should have changed into.

    Five seasons in ladies and gents. By this point, it's time to accept thats just the way Sam is. If the show gets a bigger budget and they decide to change that; huzzah. But his character is pretty well established as "not that shifter".

    I now want Jessica and Eric's sister to meet, intimately. And then have them be ever so briefly interrupted by new werewolf hottie. Whom, since this is True Blood on HBO, decides to join in.

    You really think it's just because of the budget? With all the special effects in this show, you really don't think they could have thrown Barnum & Bailey a few bucks to borrow an elephant for the day? I mean, I'm not asking for Silver Back Sam to go rampaging around Bon Temps every time someone short-tips a waitress. But just once, just once, it'd be nice to see him do something in the face of danger that's even mildly interesting given his ability that lends itself to so much creativity.

    Its either the budget, or they just flat out don't want Sam to be the uber-shifter who can save the day almost everytime.

    It frustrated the hell out of me for the first couple of seasons, but I've accepted the fact Sam will not shift into what I would. Though I don't think he can shift into a T-Rex since they're all dead. But by God I would meditate on it daily in hopes I could.

    That or just wreck havoc as Stanley the honey badger.

    Sam's big shift this season will be Felix the Armadillo.

    And I will love it.

    Chekhov's Armadillo, waiting to go off.

    So, wolverines from North America, which puts Sam closer, are not an option but something very similar from Africa to Asia is? o.O

    That was a really good episode.

    I LOVE the
    Lilith / God mythos, and the council. And seeing some Spartacus love on the council was just icing on the cake. I had no idea he was cast for this show.

    Tonight's episode was pretty sweet. Lots of background info. Loving the bromance buddy-cop drama between Eric and Bill though.
    The interrogation scenes were pretty good, I liked their similar but characterized replies to the questions. Not sure where they're going with the Tara plot, is she still Tara and just confused or is she retarded or what? Still not very interested in the Terry story line, and how the fuck did Steve Newlin know that Bill isn't the King anymore? Also no Caine mentioned in the religion of vampires? Kind of weird to include Lilith but not him.

    There are other questions but those bothered me the most.

    Favorite line of the episode.
    "...Get the fuck out of my house."
    "No problem, psycho."

    I don't mind the Tara plot. It at least gives some justification for her angst beyond "Eggs! Franklin! Life!"

    That said, I would take ANY of the Tara bullshit to the Terry/Wolves garbage. Do. Not. Care. Give them their own damn show or webisodes or something. The lil wolf was just. . .oh man - so dumb.

    Much better than the first episode. Not caring so much for the werewolf plots. The vampire storylines (besides Tara) are keeping it going so far, though.

    Maybe they don't want to get sued by White Wolf.

    Also, Cain is the son of Adam so he doesn't really fit their mythology.

    Yeah I just couldn't not think of Caine when they were talking about the vampire bible. I guess it works just as good this way.

    The best part about the werewolf storyline is Alcide. I'm really glad he's sticking to his "Fuck this shit" attitude and not being swayed by retarded wolf clan member A and B. I'd agree that it's kinda dumb. I'm not very interested in it either. I just want Sam and Luna to go about living their shifter lives...

    Also (Authority spoilers...ish)
    I get we're supposed to understand that everyone and anyone can be on the authority, but let's do a quick head count here. We got rich looking powerful white dude, old domestic looking white woman, black bad ass from Spartacus, slick smooth (french?) interrogation guy, Eric's hot sweedish "sister", that other chick who questioned Eric, and then this random 8 year old kid. I don't even want to know what that kid did to be at this kind of power, I just hope he's a bad ass and not the whiny brat we saw of him.

    Well,
    The 8-year old kid is probably actually 900 years old or whatever. How child vampires in White Wolf's World of Darkness do it is by getting human adults hooked on their blood and wielding power through them. Imagine if Little Orphan Annie had blood that was as addictive as crack and gave people a supernatural high. Daddy Warbucks wouldn't stand a chance; she'd be controlling his empire in weeks.

    I realized last night that True Blood is a better show about the WoD than the actual WoD show, Kindred the Embraced.

    Of course, that isn't hard, that show sucked.

    But how much more badass would it be if it turns out he really is only 8.

    Lo and behold. Kid's background from the wiki, probably from the books or interviews with the kid
    Alexander Drew is an angelic looking, yet impetuous vampire. He was turned at the tender age of 9, and serves the Vampire Authority as a Chancellor. He enjoys smoking cigarettes and taunting everyone around him, including his fellow Chancellors. Alexander Drew is the oldest member of the Authority Council, as described in several interviews with the actor portraying him, Jacob Hopkins.

    Dear lord, Jessica negotiating with Fellowship boy was hotter than the sun.

    Wife and I got a chuckle figuring out that a vampire would suffer serious burns if it tried to touch our bearded dragons. UVB's calcium aiding powers FTFW.

    Have to agree that the were shit is boring, minus Alciede. Why it is they all have to be massive douches and degenerates is beyond me.

    At least get the unexpected and far more interesting Bill and Eric buddy cop show. Those two could be the only focus of the whole season and I would love it.

    The best part about the werewolf storyline is Alcide.

    Basically. I actually did enjoy the werewolf stuff originally, with the biker bar and all, but when it goes from bikers to this more inbred redneck type culture, it gets a lot less cool.
    Maybe with Russell being back, we'll have more badass werewolves-vs-vampires-through-history stuff. (Not sure if I need to spoil tag this? Seems common knowledge Russell is back this season and all, but the OP here is vague on what needs to be spoiler'd.)

    Also omg Pam/Eric backstory scenes. Why is no one mentioning this. "If I meet a lady, I'll let her know." So great.

    Of course, that isn't hard, that show sucked.

    I liked that show ... years after it was released and I watched it all together in one go online. And after I had some clue what WoD was since playing Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines. There is just something about commercials that ruins the ever living fuck out of shows for me and I could see if you had watched it when it aired that it sucked balls compared to the P&P stuff.

    The Vampire shadow broker politics stuff is holding this show together, without a doubt. I think Jason's stuff is a close second, despite him still being in many ways the same dumb ass who can get laid no matter what which I bet looks to anyone who doesn't care for him like that storyline spins its wheels like crazy and I think they would be right, I still find his scenes interesting. Interesting wheel spinning, whodathunkit.

    I think Terry, Sam, and Sookie all fall under the "God damn it, be more bad ass already!" banner. I am finding I want this show to full on embrace the action hero / anti-hero movie stuff. Relationships and stuff are good, setting is also good, but I feel like we have full on established all of that and its time for some brutal, balls to the wall, main characters gonna die action and drama. Blow it up real good. Then cry about the fall out - I was really disappointed Tara was vamped, I can only hope she just goes nuts and newborn vampire slaughters like a KKK rally and teams up with Russel Edgington who is impressed with her style ... and vamp her girlfriend too.

    Pam backstory:
    I really liked the period costume stuff. Pam was even interesting as a mortal.

    Perhaps we should use the spoiler system where the thread is unspoiled until the current season, which is spoilered. Or it could be like the GoT thread, where book stuff is spoilered and show stuff that has already aired (except for teasers) is not.

    To be fair, mentioning the books in here at all is largely pointless, as the only things that even vaguely resemble the books at this point are character names and roughly how they started out on the show.

    The books and the show are are running on their own tracks completely at this point, from what I understand.

    I think if book knowledge is being used to inform any hypothesis about future show events/characters, spoilers are warranted, even if it'll turn out to be completely dissimilar. But as far as "can we talk about last season/last episode/most recently aired episode" outside of spoiler tags, is something that could use clarification.

    I personally don't care either way, I just know others get really angry about their 'thpoilers. I always thought it along these lines:

    1) You can talk about anything from the past seasons outside of spoiler tags. It's been a full year or so since the last season, if you were really interested in the show you would have watched it by now. Why would you read past the OP? etc...

    2) They still use character backgrounds, names, and relationships from the books as far as I'm concerned. So please spoil all book conversation and knowledge.

    3) Anything from this season should be spoiled because of how recent it is.

    4) Jessica is hot. NSFW.

    Sookie's level of badassness and everything else:
    Yeah, she killed Debbie. A year ago. Yeah, it was yesterday in the show. Doesn't hold up well in reality at this point as a badass moment of Sookie, especially since now she's whining about it. And then she SAVES Tara! Fuck Sookie! Which leads me to:

    For crying out loud, why the hell is every character in fiction lately all "A vampire?! Noooo!". Stake that stupid bitch Tara. She should be jumping for joy, not never forgiving people. But it's Tara. She can't do anything not annoying, so just set her on fire already.

    Hoyt can do it. Hoyt is awesome. He can tell Tara to Fuck Off!

    Jessica seems to be slipping into vampire things instead of partying/relationship crap, so yay for that. She should kill Steve to keep her focused on saving her 'dad', but that doesn't seem likely, sadly.

    For crying out loud, why the hell is every character in fiction lately all "A vampire?! Noooo!". Stake that stupid bitch Tara. She should be jumping for joy, not never forgiving people. But it's Tara. She can't do anything not annoying, so just set her on fire already.

    Hoyt can do it. Hoyt is awesome. He can tell Tara to Fuck Off!

    Jessica seems to be slipping into vampire things instead of partying/relationship crap, so yay for that. She should kill Steve to keep her focused on saving her 'dad', but that doesn't seem likely, sadly.

    Well.
    Some people don't want to become a soulless monster. I think Tara is legitimately justified in being pissed at Sookie and Lafayette.

    Look at, I don't know, every vampire on the show. They're all flat-out murderers. Even Bill has done premeditated homicide, and he's the good one.

    The only good vampire in the show so far was Eddie... and we all know how that turned out. I do wonder sometimes if his "goodness" was more along the lines of just not having the power to be evil, since nobody taught him anything about being a vampire.

    Regarding Jessica,
    she still doesn't know that Bill is in trouble. Bill left her that nice voicemail saying that he was going to be out of time. That Steve DID know that Bill is in trouble is interesting. I don't think we know who his maker is yet.

    I swear people want this series to be a comic book.

    The truth about the shotgun moment is that it really illustrates the change happening to the main character and in general to the citizens of Bon Temps. 3 years ago Sookie wouldn't have fired a shotgun in retaliation at all, so her whining about it I think is her trying to cope with the changes that are happening inside her.

    Tara was raped by a vampire, so I think she has a right to say, " A Vampire?! Nooooo!" , not that she has so far. Actually her response to the sudden change I think has been pretty reasonable, given how truly horrible and decadent True Blood vampires have been throughout the series.
