True Blood Season 7.10 Series Finale Review: Thank You

True Blood Season 7.10 Series Finale Review: Thank You

True Blood Season 7.10 Series Finale Review: Thank You August 24, 2014 – HBO Is there such a thing as a satisfying series finale? I can think of some finales that were universally maligned that still haunt me at night (HIMYM) and some that were divisively debated (Lost and Dexter to name just a couple), so it begs the question. It is impossible to please everyone, but one would expect […]

True Blood Season 7.09 Review: Love is to Die

True Blood Season 7.09 Review: Love is to Die August 17, 2014 – HBO Only one episode remaining, and boy did this week’s episode begin and end in the perfect place. All of the bullshit is over, everyone’s happy-ever-after is on its way, and all we have left for next week is Sookie, Bill, and the Yakuza. Oh, and a newly blonde Sarah Newlin. But before we come to next […]

True Blood Season 7.08 Review: Almost Home

True Blood Season 7.08 Review: Almost Home

True Blood Season 7.08 Review: Almost Home August 10, 2014 – HBO In case you haven’t heard, this is True Blood’s final season. But if you had been living under a rock, watching “Almost Home” might have given you a clue that the end was coming near. Throughout the hour, storylines were coming to a close faster than you can say, “She is mine,” in an over-exaggerated Southern accent. And […]

True Blood Season 7.07 Review: May Be The Last Time

True Blood Season 7.07 Review: May Be The Last Time

True Blood Season 7.07 Review: May Be The Last Time August 3, 2014 – HBO This week is the week of returns. In a season that is supposed to hearken back to the beginning, this is the episode that does that most blatantly. Not only do we have returning characters galore, but we even have a direct replay of one of the more famous scenes, even down to the wardrobe […]

True Blood Season 7.06 Review: Karma

True Blood Season 7.06 Review: Karma

True Blood Season 7.06 Review: Karma July 27, 2014 – HBO Another day, another slow episode with a lot of emotional moments. The slow pace is not something I would associate with True Blood as a series, but it seems to be working well for this final outing. The emotional toll of the Hep V infection is getting even higher, bringing many a bloody tear. And with that comes more […]

True Blood Season 7.05 Review: Lost Cause

True Blood Season 7.05 Review: Lost Cause

True Blood Season 7.05 Review: Lost Cause July 20, 2014 – HBO With the infected vampire horde a long-gone memory, things slowed down significantly this week in “Lost Cause.” With the only current threat the slowly progressing infection in our favorite vampire (and now vampires?!?), the question remains: can this series stay compelling to the very end? For sure, this episode still offered a lot of interesting moments and turning […]

True Blood Season 7.04 Review: Death Is Not The End

True Blood Season 7.04 Review: Death Is Not The End

True Blood Season 7.04 Review: Death Is Not The End July 13, 2014 – HBO With a title like “Death Is Not The End,” I immediately expected to see some beloved characters, dearly departed, but not completely gone. I also expected there to be yet another blood bath. I was not wrong, though who returned and who died I did not predict. In one sense, the deaths of two characters […]

True Blood Season 7.03 Review: Fire in the Hole

True Blood Season 7.03 Review: Fire in the Hole

True Blood Season 7.03 Review: Fire in the Hole July 6, 2014 – HBO Did anything really happen in “Fire in the Hole”? A few things. Most notably, we had the very quick death of two pretty major characters: one, a recurring character from the beginning, and the other, a central character who became quite a favorite from first appearance. Beyond this, however, this episode was just as quiet as […]
