  1. Meh. That show's gone off the rails.

    It's all about Game of Thrones now. They shoulda put Daenerys Targaryen and a mother-effing baby dragon on their cover.

  3. The only thing hotter than a shirtless man in overalls is a shirtless man who wears A BEARD in overalls.

    Time for some Photoshop cropping.

  4. Agree, Johnny. The non-Alcides look like drooling doofuses with missing teeth.

  6. still haven't decided if i'm gonna pick up HBO for TB this season

    not sure i can deal with 12 episodes of "who will Sookie choose" -- ugh

    now tell me Ryan Kwanten will be running around in his briefs every episode, that's a different story :)

  7. I squealed... Anna Paquin is looking FIERCE in these promo shots. While I admit some of the romance stuff is going to be a snoozer, I think the show has dealt with relationships before in a non-sappy way, and I doubt it will devolve into a "Team Jacob/ Team Edward" goopfest. Really looking forward to what crap Russel Edgington will pursue and the return of the Fellowship of the Sun, hopefully with some good evangelical satire.

  8. They definitely pasted hair on Joe's arm. What's up with that?

  9. She would pick that hot werewolf guy over the rather anemic vampire twins.

  10. @ LETO: His character on True Blood is a werewolf. Notice that the other two (both Vampires, have their fangs on).
