'True Blood' RECAP - 'Lost Cause' [Spoilers]

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 12.52.23 AM

Ain’t no party like a True Blood party, because a True Blood party includes at least one stabbing.

Break out the jungle juice, because folks in Bon Temps are getting lit. (More like Bon Turnt, amirite?) Tonight's episode lacked the action-packed punch of this season's first few installments. Blame it on the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol, I guess.

We did, however, get some nice man-on-man action (albeit with almost no nudity whatsoever, which is notable on this show). 

So see who hooked up with whom, and share your comments on tonight's episode, AFTER THE JUMP ...

'True Blood' RECAP - 'Death Is Not The End' [Spoilers]

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 6.32.57 AM

Oh, this show. I've been pleased with how the final season of True Blood has been thinning the herd of the show's ridiculously bloated ensemble. However, after tonight's episode, I'm left a little unclear what the thrust of the remaining will be. Sometimes these things wrap themselves up a little too nicely. We're just four episodes in, and tonight's episode swiftly dealt with two of the primary groups of antagonists this season.

At least we know we can count on Sookie to run roughshod over everyone's lives in Bon Temps. It's probably the only thing we can count on from this show (aside from the gratuitous shirtlessness and sassy Pam one-liners).

Let's hold hands in bed and try to remember everything that happened in tonight's episode, AFTER THE JUMP ...

'True Blood' RECAP - 'Fire In the Hole' [Spoilers]

Tb_manganiello

This week's installment of True Blood featured a lot of the things that viewers hate about the series (a bunch of random new characters, overcomplicating plot lines with Vampire politics, a stupid Civil War-era flashback), and yet it was still a great episode. 

We'll dish on tonight's most shocking death in a bit, but suffice to say the final season's ongoing thinning of the ensemble has successfully upped the stakes. It really feels like no character is safe. Plus, we got the return of Anna Camp's Sarah Newlin. Sure, she's a bit more subdued than we last saw her, but she was absolutely the best thing about last season, and I could not be happier she's back. Hide your stillettos, because I'd wager it shan't be long before we see Newlin at her most unhinged.

There were enough deaths tonight to warrant this episode's own In Memoriam montage. So, get ready to pour one (or two or three) out for those that didn't make it to the end credits, AFTER THE JUMP ...

'True Blood' RECAP - 'I Found You' [Spoilers]

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 7.06.31 AM

I want to begin this week by thanking the man or woman responsible for somehow sneaking in my Eric (Alexander Skarsgård)-Jason (Ryan Kwanten) slash-fiction into the True Blood writers’ room. It made no sense and was completely unnecessary (just a dream sequence), but I certainly wasn’t complaining.

In addition to that scene, there were enough holes in tonight’s episode (plotholes! get your mind out of the gutter!) to remind viewers that this is True Blood, after all, and it’s best not to think too hard about it. 

Let's relive some of this week's insanity, AFTER THE JUMP ...

'True Blood' RECAP - 'Jesus Gonna Be Here' [Spoilers]

BY BOBBY HANKINSON

Welcome back, True Blood! The seventh and final season of HBO's off-the-rails vampire horror soap opera featured a town under siege and at least one character death that's sure to bring a smile to the face of many viewers.

We can all agree that sometimes this show is a total pile of garbage, but tonight's premiere showed some promise. It's definitely not the taut thriller it was in its first season, but, so far, the show's chaos feels contained to the Hep V spread we saw introduced last season. Let's hope it can maintain its focus. Regardless, we'll be chronicling the good, the bad and the utterly ridiculous all season with our weekly recaps.

Get up to speed on what went down this week, and share your thoughts on the premiere, AFTER THE JUMP ...

Everything You Need To Know For The Return of 'True Blood'

HBO’s long-running vampire series True Blood is sort of like the little girl in that Longfellow poem: When it’s good, it’s very, very good, and when it’s bad it’s horrid.

After six wildly uneven seasons, the faeries, vampires, witches, mediums, shifters, werewolves and who-knows-what-else of Bon Temps are back for one last hurrah. The seventh and final season of the show premieres Sunday at 9 p.m.

Though True Blood hasn’t always maintained consistent quality, it’s at least stayed compulsively watchable. The perfect frothy summer viewing, it doesn’t shy away from gross-out horror, melodramatic romance or lots and lots of gratuitous sex. It’s amassed a sizable gay following not only because the central conceit positions vampires as a loose allegory for the LGBT community, but also for showcasing several same-sex couplings and enough hunky man-flesh to rival most Channing Tatum movies.

In case you need a refresher on True Blood’s myriad characters and storylines ahead of Sunday’s premiere, we’ve got a quick reminder of where we left some of our favorites, AFTER THE JUMP
