Last night’s episode of True Blood was confusing. This whole season has been weird and disappointing. No, I am not upset that Sookie is no longer screwing Eric or Bill, I don’t wish the current season was anything like the first. I just wish it made sense. Here’s my beef with last night’s episode:
1. So, that’s it? You made a huge deal about Christopher Meloni’s character, making him seem really important only to kill him at the hands of Russel Edgington half-way through the season? Only you might not, because he might not actually be a vampire? Or something? The fuck?
2. Since you have the stake, why don’t you go ahead and drive it through Nora, get that one out of the way. That story line is only compounding the weirdness of this season.
3. Yep, still don’t care about Terry’s weird fire monster. Didn’t care about last season’s baby-ghost thing that dominated the last few episodes. I was more than happy with Terry just being a traumatized war veteran, didn’t need to know anything more.
4. I hate vampire Tara. I wasn’t crazy about her before, but now I hate her.
There’s just too much going on this season. Seriously, every character has some kind of supernatural predicament, or has someone trying to kill them, and it’s getting a bit much. It’s okay if you can’t fit in everyone in a season. You turn them into supporting characters, and then you give them the limelight the next season, that is, if it’s worth caring about. Too many storylines tires me after a bit, and eats up my energy to care about the show in general.
Maybe I’m just bitter because the weather here has been so horrible, and because National Ice Cream Day was such an epic fail for me. Shrug.
