'True Blood' RECAP - 'Almost Home' [Spoilers]

Screen Shot 2014-08-11 at 2.01.22 AM

If there was even a tiny, lingering hope that True Blood would stick the landing of its final season, that likely evaporated in tonight's episode. In what's become commonplace on True Blood, several storylines (of the show's many, many storylines) reached fairly unsatisfying conclusions. To put it in Chekhov terms: When True Blood introduces a gun in the first act, rest assured that gun will shoot a little "Bang!" flag and be forgotten in the second.

Let's rehash the latest goings-on in Bon Temps together, AFTER THE JUMP ...

A perfect blend of mundane and absurd, humor and heart, Please Like Me shines thanks to its writer, creator and star, Josh Thomas. We spoke to Josh about the show, his sex scenes and the one idea that was nixed by network executives.

Elton John, David Furnish, And 'True Blood' Creator Alan Ball Joining Forces On New HBO Show 'Virtuoso'

EltonDavidCalling all attractive, young musicians! Elton John, hubby David Furnish, and master of television Alan Ball want you to star in their (yes, their) upcoming HBO drama, Virtuoso. Set in 1790's Vienna at an elite music academy, the pilot episode of the new show will have this amazing gay trifecta backing it and they are currently seeking out stars.

Show Biz 411 reports:

The academy is run by our old friend from “Amadeus,” Mozart’s nemesis Antonio Salieri. There’s lots of music, ruffled shirts and sex of all kinds. There are probably a lot of candelabras set on ornate pianos, too. Knowing Ball, a whole universe will be set up for the musicians, the teachers, and the wealthy music patrons of Vienna. Sounds like there might be a lot of private recitals and lessons, as well...

The cable network is also in a deal now with Mick Jagger’s company for a series about rock music in the ’70s with “Boardwalk Empire” writer Terry Winter.

Sounds like fans of Ball and Winter's previous ventures have a lot to look forward to in the coming years. And perhaps Sir Elton will make a virtuosic piano appearance himself? One can only hope.

Will you be tuning in to Virtuoso? Sound off in the comments below!
