'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 ...

Sailor Moon Reboot Returns With LGBT Storylines Intact: VIDEO

Tumblr_n8emxwaV3Q1qcsnnso1_500

Usagi Tsukino, better known by her crime fighting persona Sailor Moon, is back after a 14 year hiatus, and she’s brought some of her gay friends with her. Initially published by Naoko Takeuchi as manga for Nakayoshi magazine in the early 90s, Sailor Moon’s original source material and its subsequent run as a popular anime series were noted for their inclusion of complex lesbian, gay, and trangendered characters.

References to the romance between Sailor Venus and Sailor Mercury were written out of the American releases, as was that between notable villains Zoisite and Kunzite. Sailor Moon: Crystal, the latest release from Toei animation and Viz Media here in the West, seeks to restore the series with a retelling much closer to the original story.

“SAILOR MOON was groundbreaking in the way its storyline and main characters resonated with both a male and female audience,” said VIZ Media VP of Animation Brian Ige. “We’re thrilled to be able to release this empowering action title uncut and in its entirety.”

The series, airing on Hulu here in the US, premiered last weekend to much internet fanfare. Featuring Kotono Mitsuishi, Usagi’s original Japanese voice actress, Sailor Moon: Crystal integrates updated animation as well as a global simulcast, airing here in the States every first and third Saturday online.

Former Co-Host Of 'The View' Elisabeth Hasselbeck Slams Rosie O'Donnell's Return

Hasselbeck

Conservative talking head Elisabeth Hasselbeck recently called into Fox News chat show Fox & Friends to discuss the leftover beef she has with her former The View co-host and frenemy Rosie O’Donnell.

Hasselbeck and O’Donnell used to regularly butt heads, and now that O’Donnell has returned to the show, Hasselbeck has some words:

“Talk about not securing the border! Here comes into The View the very woman who spit in the face of our military, spit in the face of her own network and really in the face of a person who stood by her and had civilized debate for the time that she was there, coming back with a bunch of control ready to regain a seat at The View Table. Not surprising…”

Hasselbeck claims that O’Donnell took credit for producing a recent episode of The View that bid adieu to beloved long-time co-hostess Barbara Walters, and that O’Donnell actually intended the episode as her own return to the popular daytime talk show.

Hasselbeck continued by saying that that whoever else joins the show as a roundtable regular will likely be chosen by O’Donnell herself. Rumor is that the show is eyeing Abby Huntsman, Meghan McCain, and Margaret Hoover as possible conservative co-hosts.

You may recall that O’Donnell left the view amid failed contract negotiations back in 2007 whereas Hasselbeck left The View in 2013 to join the conservative chatterboxes at Fox and Friends.

Joy Behar, another former co-hostess of The View recently denounced Hasselbeck's comments about O'Donnell as "hate-filled."
