‘True Blood’: Farewell Bon Temps, Grab A Tru Blood For The Road
  |  @   |  

Did Tony Soprano get taken out when the screen went black? Were the Losties in Purgatory all along? Finales never satisfy everybody, and lines are usually drawn one minute after a series ends.

So how did the True Blood finale measure up?

Warning! Spoiler Alert!

Well it was certainly different from the usual episodes. Whereas one can usually count on gratuitous violence, nudity, and ridiculous lines like, “You just killed my fairy godmother!”, the series finale was much tamer and somber, emphasized by sad string music. The music set the pace and was appropriate for the gravity of Sookie’s (Anna Paquin) decision about Bill (Stephen Moyer). Bill is maudlin and feeling his humanity. He wants the true death even though the cure for Hep-V had been offered and subsequently rejected by him. He wants Sookie to end him with her fairy light ball, so that she can lead a normal life with babies. He believes that as long as he is alive, Sookie will always come back to him. That’s kinda arrogant, but he is probably right. While many may disagree, Bill was falling right in line with his character: brooding, guilt-stricken, and martyr-like. This is not including when Bill was evil and much more fun during the Authority storyline. Sad, guilty Bill made me want to kill him. I’ve always been more Team Eric though.

What’s Next For Our Favorite ‘True Blood’ Cast Members?
  |  @   |  

True Blood is meeting the true death tonight. While some of the cast members had managed to work on higher profile projects in between seasons (Joe Manganiello in Magic Mike; Alexander Skarsgard in Straw Dogs; Anna Paquin in X-Men: Days of Future Past), some of the cast did little else, choosing to hone their True Blood character (or enjoy their time off — I know I would). Still…we always had the comfort of knowing that come Summer, we could still catch Sookie and the gang jump from one bloody predicament to another.

But alas…everything must come to an end eventually, especially if it is as frivolously fun as True Blood. That doesn’t mean we won’t be able to see our faves act, direct, produce, and even write other films and television shows, right? So what can we look forward to? Here’s a look at what’s next for some of our favorite True Blood cast members.

Convention Report: Comicpalooza 2011
  |  

During Memorial Day weekend (May 27-29, 2011), Comicpalooza held its 4th annual multi-genre convention at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX. I attended the first two days of this three-day convention. First of all, this was my first big convention in Texas and the layout of the convention center was massive. The whole convention took place on the 3rd level of this massive convention center.

The highlights of the convention for me were the opportunities to interact with comic creators, comic fans, and celebrities. I spent a short amount of time on Friday observing the entire Con floor and chatting with various artists and writers in Artist Alley. I also checked out a few things in the Dealers Room. Before leaving for the day, I sat in on panel with comic writer Chris Roberson (I-Zombie), Fred Van Lente (Marvel Zombies), and Brian Denham (Zombie Fairy Tales) on a panel titled Comics & Zombies. By the name of the panel, you can guess what was discussed.
