You can't choose your parents as Countess Marya Zaleska (beautiful Gloria Holden) finds out. Von Helsing is on trial for staking Drac, he gets a psychiatrist to defend him (just go with it), the Countess also contacts the good doctor to treat her for that nasty blood thirst! She steals her daddy Dracula's body to burn in hopes of ending what she thinks is a curse but you all know how that turns out. They all wind up in Transylvania (where else?) in this sequel to Bela's "Dracula", it is excellent and different from the other sequels that followed. It ends with the Countess' version of Igor, Sandor, being jealous of the shrink and shooting an arrow (cue ABC's Poison Arrow) through her heart. Quelle dommage! By the way, Anne Rice reviewed this movie on Amazon a must read for vamp fans.
Chris Meloni on True Blood, the heat is on (maybe)! From Ausiello
TVLine has learned exclusively that the former Law & Order: SVU front man is circling what my sources are calling a “major role” in the show’s upcoming fifth season. If a deal comes to pass, this would be a major casting coup for True Blood. It would also mark a high-profile return to the small screen for Meloni following his sudden departure from SVU last spring.
Will he be Quinn? I would rather him as Russell's new beau, I can dream, right?
Onto TB goodies fresh off Bookies Love True Blood, join us there!

From Ausiello-Question: Even though it’s still a ways off, I can’t stop thinking about Season 5 of True Blood! I need to know anything, absolutely anything, about anything that may be happening next season! — TanyaAusiello: How about this? In the wake of Nan’s slaying, next season we’ll be meeting the Authority council, a colorful bunch that includes Kibwe, an Andre Braugher type who’s a proponent of prisoner rehab; Rosalyn Harris, a tough cookie who, from what I hear, could have been separated at birth from Paula Deen; and Alexander, a mischief-maker who only looks like he’s 9.
Will this Alexander be a twist on the books Alexei Romanov, who is book Eric's vamp brother?
Wishing Kristin and Ryan Happy Birthdays again, since today is Ryan's.
Joe likes Football, a lot.
Synopsis of Deadlocked at Vampire.com, the latest from CH.
I see a lot of articles the last couple of days that are just re-posts of interviews from the last weeks. They fool me till I get to the middle and it seems like I read it before. I go look back at my posts and sure enough, find the originals. I am trying to avoid repetition but if I do re-post something let me know so I can remove it. I'd rather keep the original sourced articles here.
