Keep On Sucking in the Free World

Vampira stopped by last evening, we watched the repeats of "Secret Circle" together. She was asking "so what's this crap about Russell not being the STAR in season 5?" You can see how perplexed she was from the photo, I had no answers for her except let's wait and see, hope for the best before we go off on Ball (he shouldn't piss her off IMO).

True Blood | Remember Alcide’s crazy ex, Debbie Pelt? Well she’s about to be crazy with family. The HBO drama is in the process of casting the not-so-dearly departed’s mom and dad, Barbara and Gordon, who will hit Bon Temps loaded with questions bout their “missing” little girl. Though both ‘rents are described as “kindly,” Gordon will be riled up and grow defensive soon enough when Alcide speaks ill of the dead. Er, of the “missing.”

This cover of French Quarter #5 looks like Eric only has half his drag on, I had to look twice. You can buy a digital copy too HERE.
With Bodies piling up and their investigation at a dead end, Sookie, Bill and Eric are forced to seek help from the local authorities-but that meeting leaves the trio with more questions than answers-so Eric takes them to a secret New Orleans library of vampire history and information!
Here's the Season 4 teaser from FX UK,  it starts February 5th, Sundays at 10pm

Joe's in yet another mag, this time it's Hong Kong's Prestige (a great movie btw) he talks about a lot of things and has this to say about Alcide- more of the interview at the link.
In the books on which True Blood is based, the Southern Vampire Mysteries series by Charlaine Harris, the character of Alcide features more heavily in some books than others. But show creator Alan Ball seems to have taken a liking to Manganiello’s role, further infusing the plot with story arcs featuring the werewolf. When I suggest that this is a reaction to the character’s popularity with viewers, Manganiello shakes his head. “I don’t know that Alan’s somebody who caves to peer pressure – as evidenced by him killing off most of the cast after season four. I think Alan does what Alan wants, and Alan does what Alan feels is right,” he says with a laugh. “But whatever the reason is, I think I’ve greatly benefitted. I know for a fact that [Alcide] is going to play a bigger part [in season five.] My role is only going to increase, and I’ll wind up getting into territory that isn’t covered in the books.”

  From today's NYPost-
Scene-stealer Carrie Preston returns as the flighty legal eagle Elsbeth Tascioni, who saved Alicia (Julianna Margulies) when the Department of the Treasury pressured her to give up the firm’s suspected terrorist client. Preston was entertaining enough that Mama hoped that her initial episode might be a test bubble for a spinoff, so it’s worth setting the DVR — even if it means recording for three hours to accommodate the overtime on the preceding AFC playoff game, which is the most irritating part of this drama.

  1. I'm excited about Alcide's expanding role, getting into territory not in the books. A chance for some romance with him and Sookie?
