Well, Who DO I want to see?
I know I Don’t like Scott Foley on TB.. I’m sure I’ll always see him as his character on Felicity (I know, showing my age here) But, I just don’t see how he’s going to benefit the show.
1. Quinn. Naturally, as my RP Character suggests, I am a fan of the Big, Broody Tiger with a Past. He’s such a great character & I just think the only man for the job is Vin Diesel. He’s who Charlaine had in mind when she wrote him, so it just fits.
2. JB DuRone. If Jason’s a stud, JB’s right there with him. None too swift in the smarts department, but fantastic eye candy, JB is just a good ol’ fashioned redneck party boy. If Sookie gets sick of or mad at any of the various suitors at her door, JB is more than willing to take their place.
3. Clovach (sp?) . The Britligen warrior is just an interesting person. The interactions she has & her quirks would just be fun to see in Alan Balls world.
4. Claude. Properly done. In the books, Claude is on the cover of Romance Novels. He’s STUNNING. He’s gay & proud. He doesn’t suffer fools. Seeing the weak effort that Alan Ball & company considered to be their Claude, I was deeply dissapointed. He’d even give LaLa a run for his money in the title of head diva in Bon Temps
5. Andre ~ It’s a mute point now With Sophie Anne gone, but it would have been fun to see the two centuries old Vampire Companions have a bicker over how V was distributed in the kingdom of Louisiana.
At Any rate, New Characters or not, I can’t wait for June 10th. Waiting does Suck.
I’ve been reading all the Fangathon blogs and I’ve noticed something: Sam’s pretty much a no-show, so today, I’m writing a love letter to Sam Merlotte, owner of Merlotte’s bar and grill in Bon Temps.
Well, we all knew that, and we know he’s a shape shifter. We also know he has been sweet on one of his employees since day one.
Even in the first book, Charlaine Harris made it plain that Sam has it bad for Sookie. He was about ready to ask her out the fateful night Vampire Bill walked into his bar.
Makes you want to compare Sam to Rick, the world weary bar owner in Casablanca.
“Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world he walks into mine.”
First, Bill breaks Sookie’s heart. Then, she and Alcide are always out of step. She’s interested, he’s not, and vice versa. Then, Eric wins her over when he can’t remember what he did. In the book, Quinn and Sookie have all the right intentions of having a relationship, but a bomb literally blows that relationship to kingdom come. Eric steps back in, but the in book does something much more surprising than anything imagined in True Blood.
Actually, way back in the early days of both the books and the show, Sookie and Sam kiss, but that’s quickly quashed by an extremely jealous Bill.
In the book, Sam has dated several other women, ending with werewolf Jannalynn, the Shreveport Pack’s enforcer. If you’re read “Deadlocked,” you know how that turns out and you also know there is a very big “IF” left at the end of the book, leaving fans practically drooling for the final Sookie Stackhouse novel, “Dead Ever After.”
In True Blood he had a standard booty call with Tara. Other than that, most of his relationships end badly. The jury is still out on how his relationship will go with Luna, a fellow shape shifter who was married to a werewolf, who happened to be Shreveport’s Pack Leader. He’s gone now, thanks to Alcide, so the jury is out on how this will affect Sam and Luna’s dating life.
I like the way Sam is described in the book. I love the “red gold” description of his hair, the way he is always just a tiny bit scruffy. He’s a good-hearted guy, the kind most girls would be happy to take home to mom and dad. He just doesn’t seem to ever get that far, which I find sad.
Did I mention he has a killer smile?
I’ll go out on a limb here and flat out say that I wish Sookie and Sam would wind up together. So many people think I am insane, that either Bill or Eric would be better for her because she can’t read their minds, but she has trouble reading Sam’s a lot of the time too.
Sam has never hurt Sookie. (Well his brother did when he was pretending to be Sam in the show, but Sam himself never has). He respects her as a person and her decisions, even when he disagrees with them. He doesn’t make decisions for her, like both vampires have.
Also in his favor, he has saved Sookies like more than once, just like Bill and Eric. In my world, he’s a serious contender. In the book, he shifts into a lion to defend Sookie. A LION. Now that’s someone willing to protect you in any way possible.
And, since he still has a beating heart, he can stay out in the sun, something Sookie won’t give up. She loves the daylight and she can only share it with Bill and Eric if they get a big ole Sookie cocktail before they step outside, and even then they can only stay a little while.
And hey, if they had a fight and Sookie told him he was in the doghouse, he should simply shift to Dean to collie and go for it. What more could a girl want?
So Sam, this blog’s for you. You’re a great guy, you deserve a great girl and I hope you find one. Personally, I hope it’s Sookie, both in the book and in the series.
In the first season,when Lafayette takes Tara to that party,and this guy starts to throw these corny pickup-lines at Tara.And Tara basically tells the guy that she is married to a phsyco and that her “husband” is going to chop off is dick if he catches them.<——-Lol that was pretty great !!!
This is from last Sunday’s finale of Once Upon a Time, Maleficent was trapped as a dragon in a basement by the queen.
More Manganiello from the premiere of WTEWYE-
From Eonline–Suzylem: I know the new season of True Blood has not started yet, but any word on what is coming up?
“They just released the new trailer, and there’s some crazy stuff,” Joe Manganiello says. “The million-dollar question is always, ‘Is Alcide going to hook up with Sookie?'” So, you know, is he? Joe would only give a big smile. Translation: Duh. And yes, Joe is totally down with Alcide becoming a dad if that’s how the HBO hit decides to handle Anna Paquin’s real-life pregnancy. “I will say that I’m the only character on the show that can get her pregnant, so if they have to with it, there’s kind of only one way you can go!
Joe Manganiello plays a character who makes the dads in “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” rather envious with his athletic physique, but it was no walk in the park to shoot the role for the well-toned actor. In the movie, Joe has a host of memorable – and mostly shirtless — scenes, but one of his movie moments involves pull-ups that were shot over and over again. “It was over 100 [degrees] during those days that I had to do all of the chin-ups,” he told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson at the film’s Los Angeles premiere on Monday night. “I had to do about 900 chin-ups a day, and it was about 100 degrees.” He may have had to sweat it out, but there is one thing Joe did not have to do on the set. “I didn’t have to change any diapers… but I’m sure somebody did,” he laughed referring to the 31 babies used in the filming process.

There’s nother casting notice for episode #511: for True Blood:
Episode #511, “Finally”
Director: Lesli Linka Glatter
Writer: Angela Robinson
Outside Dates: approx. 5/25/12
[GENERAL CAVENAUGH] A tough as nails general along the lines of Norman Schwarzkopf. Guest star
This is an update to the previous casting call posted on the site link here:
Without her I wouldn’t even be doing this. Without her I wouldn’t have waited with toe curling anticipation each year for the release of the next book. Without her there would be no True Blood.
I have to confess that Dead Until Dark was a bit dicey for me. There were interesting aspects to it and I enjoyed her spin on the vampire legend. However, at first, I found the detailed descriptions of Sookie’s wardrobe and her daily routine uninteresting. Then I gave the Living Dead in Dallas a try and fell in love with Sookie’s pluck, Eric’s fascination with her and learning more about vampire culture and heirarchy. Not all of the successive books were good but when they were, they were exciting, unexpectedly funny and very sexy.
What I’ve enjoyed the most from the books is the development of Eric and Sookie’s relationship. They argue. They fight side by side. They surprise each other. They fall in love. It’s an adult relationship where they talk and respect each other. Oh and there’s lots of monkey sex.
So Charlaine, there’s only one book left. I refuse to speculate as to what will happen in Dead Ever After. I’m putting my full faith in you that, no matter Sookie’s fate, it will be a fun, touching and leave me wanting more just like a good story should.
