Great Review! OMG i am loving Chistopher Meloni when ever he is on screen i actually get glued to the screen. u guys forgot to mention sookie using her power on pam. oh …. and pam's line of "what the hell are y'all looking at go back to dry humping each other and buying my overprized drinks or get the eff out." lol.
Pam has the best lines They become instant classics like the Walmart sweatsuit, Sookie's super s.. and my favorite little dialogue-
Pam: She smells.
Sookie: Is that bad?
Pam: Can't imagine it's good. (while eye-rolling like a boss)
Another good episode. There are a lot of really strong women of power in this season. It is nice to see that. Women who have wielded power for a long time – Salome, and women who are just discovering their power – Sookie and maybe Tara. I do think Tara might be walking into the sun before the season is out though. I'm not feeling the Terry storyline, so far I don't care. I'm pissed really because I don't want to see the TB writers mess him up. I like him just as he is. I did enjoy Andy getting some skin time – has anyone else noticed how much he has been working out – great job. The bleach and Lafayette – nope didn't like that. I actually liked the Pam and Eric turn scene. She was completely vulnerable and completely committed when she did that. Which works perfectly for her, because she is a tough, brave character.
Thanks for the great review
glad u 2 are back – you 2 feed well off one another with your views……love your True Blood reviews……..!!!!!
Thanks guys!!!! We really appreciate you watching!!!
Nice review Ladies! I loved this episode. Facebook Andy & app controlled iStakes for Eric & Bil! Not to mention Salome's dance of the three rock-hard mmm-mmm-mmm, git it girl! This is going to b an interesting season.
You are back! Yeah! I have been sooo looking forward to you reviews! Here are some thoughts from me regarding episode 1, 2 and 3 of season 5….
How many characters can a comment be? I get the message too many So, I will split my comment into multiply ones.
I love that the show is going back to its original core topic. One of the reasons why the books by Charlaine Harris were so interesting and different was the idea that the vampires are “out of the coffin”. This was for me a centric theme and the most interesting one, the human and vampire relationship. And somehow I felt it came to short (not only in the show but also in the books). So many supernatural elements were introduced (werewolves, fairies, witches) that I felt this aspect was being neglected.
I absolutely love the Authority plot line. It is fantastic to get to know the vampires behind the mainstreaming movement and explore the struggles they have. I hope that this will be explored more with the coming episodes. It would also be interesting to see on a larger scale how humans are reacting to the “post – Russel – Edington – World” (that no longer is “post” ). We saw a little bit with – what was it? The “Stake House”?
Not keen on the werewolf story line. And I cannot pinpoint why but somehow it does not interest me. And I found that they ate Marcus quite disturbing… This is actually the storyline I find the least interesting and would not mind if disappears. As mentioned above I would rather they focus on the vampires.
Nora – I find the new character fantastic (and all the other new Authority members!!). When I first read that Eric’s sister will appear beginning of the year, I was reluctant about the idea. Now I hope that she will make it past episode 4 and hopefully into season 6!
I find the dynamic between Eric and Nora great. Moreover I find that it helps to bring out more layers of Eric. On a note of their physical relationship: I have read a lot of comments about how disturbing it is that they have sex. The way I see it is that we should not project human values and ethic norms on vampires. They are another species with sexual liberated believes and the terminology “sister” should rather be used as a loose description of their relation.
However what I wonder about – why are both so set on the agreement not to reveal their connection through their common maker? Maybe I did not catch essential information but would it not have been less of consequences (and less torture) for Nora if they have admitted their relationship? I still believe Nora tried to safe Eric (and as Bill was with him they came as a package deal) and did not do this because of political motivation (to support the Sanguanista) but because of a deep emotional motivation.
Further I doubt that Nora truly is part of the Sanguanista movement (or has the true fundamental believe). She cracked awful sudden after Rosalyn Harris suggested killing Eric and Bill, don’t you agree? I am asking myself is Nora is going as far as accepting the true death to keep Eric safe?
And in regards to that – I don’t believe that Eric is either – Sanguanista or mainstreamer. He is Eric. I believe he is content with being known as vampire to the human but not fully being integrated in society either. I truly believe that he was honest to Roman when he said that he tries to stay out of politics as much as possible. I konw this was not addressed directly yet, but hopefully it will. Do you think Eric’s standpoint and intentions will be revealed this season?
I too believe that Salome is at least involved with Sanguanista – if not so the head of the movement. We will see…
Tare the newest vampire. I must say that I was very skeptical when I first read that Tara will not die, but return in one form or another. I have to admit, I never was a fan of the character therefore not sad to see her go either. And the idea that she will be a vampire was repelling for me. That was at least after the season 4 finally last year.
Now I am not quite on board with the idea BUT I find it fantastic that it opens new possibilities to explore the vampire world. The writers of the show take it one step further than what we saw with Jessica (seeing the stars with Tara’s new vampire vision and the higher senses). I am looking forward to seeing how this plays out, especially the Pam – Tara relationship. I also wonder what Eric’s reaction will be like? At some point he must get to know that Pam made Tara vampire.
I absolutely adore and love the back story how Eric came about to turn Pam. Finally! Kristen Bauer van Straten is just perfect playing the role of Pam. Absolutely great how she portraits Pam as a human. The fearless front she is putting up but all the small details where you see that she is emotionally moved and not necessarily as tough as she displays to the outside.
On a general note – I am so happy that you are back with your True Blood episode reviews. Hands down Jenna and Roth, you two have the most sophisticated reviews I have seen. You are insightful, offer thought-out opinions and conclusions that make me think or reevaluate my opinion. There are so many things in my head now after seeing your reviews to the first three episodes… I actually don’t know where to start and to end…
I thank you for sharing your thoughts each week with us! I am really looking forward to seeing the review for episode 4 next week!
PS: Sorry for spamming with so many commets – it wouldn't let me post it all in one comment…
Finally, now we know what is the secret ingredient in the famous Gumbo of Bon Temps xD
Thanks for clearing and pointing out all the clues and reasons why Salome is part of the Sanguinista movement, that was a great answer to my question (is she a goodie or a baddie)
The Authority storyline is so interesting. I want to learn more about the chancellors. Just like Salome, each one of them should have a long back-story (by the way, what's up with that annoying and creepy chancellor kid on the council?? Does he come from of a distinguished lineage or is he so much powerful? Let's hope he won't beat up Eric and Bill, it will break their ego..).
Turning Sookie into a selfish person (thinking "will Alcide rat?" instead of "I'm sorry for him") and a gray character (consciously choosing to kill Debbie) is a smart move because she was too much self-righteous and shallow. Pam's origin story is very fascinating, giving her so much more to work with. I really hope Tara won't pull a Godric-sunrise, she's such a tragic character.
