9 THINGS WE WILL ACTUALLY MISS ABOUT “TRUE BLOOD”
HBO’s sexy supernatural series True Blood will be ending after next season — and not a moment too soon. But as bad as the show is, it’s still given us plenty to enjoy over its soon-to-be six-year run.
#1 - Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård)
"Remember when True Blood was a romance between Sookie and Bill? Remember when everyone realized what a mistake that was and put Eric front and center? The blond bad boy vampire has always been the highlight of the series, from his long-haired origins to his wacky amnesia to his full-frontal nudity. Long after it’s gone, True Blood will be remembered as the show that gave us Alexander Skarsgård, and for that, we will always be grateful.”
So from what I gather about everything Buckner has said about season seven… season seven is going to bomb. Big time. They’re taking my favorite show and turning it to shit from what I understand. That makes me sad and pissed off.
From my understanding, and please correct me if I’m wrong, he plans on taking it back to season 1, making it about Bill, and having Pam and Eric in only a few eps. I don’t even know what to say. In what universe does Buckner live on that makes any of this sound like a good idea? Is he that naive or oblivious to the fact that there’s a good chunk of people who watch the show because of Alex/Eric? Having him in limited scenes and basically tossing aside a major character like Eric is the most ridiculous, stupidest idea I’ve ever heard.
And why the hell is he making it about Bill? Last I checked the books were based on Sookie and she was the center of the show. I’m still pissed off at the fact there was that whole Lilith storyline and Bill becoming Billith like he was going to be some big villain. Then at the end he’s back to being Bill, which I don’t even understand since I thought Bill dyed when he drank the blood but okay, and now all is supposed to be forgiven? Yes let’s just forget all the horrible things he’s done and center a show about him!
Then they tease us with the possibility of Sookie and Eric in season 4 and after season 1 he was a big character. So much character development and for what? His character deserves better. Alex deserves better. You can bet I’ll be watching his scenes on Youtube then because to me the show won’t even be worth watching. Unless I’m not understanding all of this right or Buckner is a complete troll.
Is this the best they can do?
This isn’t a parody, is a complaint headed to Buckner and HBO based on the poster from Love Actually.
We don’t want an abusive relationship to succeed
Stop this nonsense before it’s too late
Because you got everybody there. You got your freshmen,
unfriendly black hotties,
girls who eat their faeries,
girls who don't eat anything,
sexually active band geeks,
the greatest people you will ever meet
and the worst
Beware of Billith.
I am in the midst of writing a recap of this finale … And all I want to do now is just link to this gifset and be done with it. Because this pretty much sums it up.
Please, Alla, power through the pain. I need you! WE need you.
Oh, darling! Thank you, but … I fear I’m about to let you down. Because I can’t seem to find that elusive silver lining. And who wants to read a 10-page rant? … Sigh. I am so, so sorry!t
Unfortunately right now, this is it to a T.
