As seems to be the tradition in this new season, there’s a somewhat unexpected murder in the first scene. After interrogating Amber, Sarah Newlin’s vampire sister, and learning that Sarah is the cure for Hep V, but that she won’t turn her sister in now that she’s saved her. Eric gets so angry, he pops her like a blood-filled tick. And the Yakuza proposes that they capture Sarah Newlin together and create a serum from her blood and sell it as Nu Blood, and offers 49% of the company Eric (and Pam) to be “the vampire Jennie Craig,”...

The episode opens with Eric beating the shit out of the Yakuza, and getting tired, until he sees that they have Pam, in silver chains, and then he surrenders and Sarah Newlin escapes again. The Yakuza now have Eric and Pam in front of a giant digital clock ticking down the time until dawn. “Our first sunrise together,” Eric says to Pam. Jessica overhears Bill getting his affairs in order now that he has Hep V, so he makes an appointment with a vampire lawyer whose waiting room is filled to the brim with vampires settling their affairs...

Willa, Eric’s progeny, asks Erik to release her from his command, in exchange for giving him the location of Sarah Newlin’s sister. It turns out that Sarah Newlin’s sister Amber is a vampire who lives in Dallas. Now that all the infected vampires at Fangtasia are dead, Ginger wants to go with Eric (and Pam), or to finally be turned into a vampire, and reminds him that she has been his sex slave without sex for 15 years. Meanwhile Sookie mourns Alcide, whose father has arrived in Bon Temps and plans to throw a wake that will shake...

We start this episode with Sookie calling Alcide’s weredaddy to tell him that his son is dead, followed by Jason calling Hoyt Fortenberry to tell him his mom is dead, but he’s been so glammored that he doesn’t even remember that Jason and Jessica are the reason why he’s working on the Alaskan pipeline. Meanwhile Eric and Pam are heading back to the US with s stop-over in Shreveport so he can check in on his progeny, Willa, and reminisce about his early days in the 1980’s as the proprietor of a cheesy video store that later became...

So I’m not going to pussyfoot around here. This is the final season where all your favorite characters die. They killed Alcide in this episode. But I’ll get to that later. We open with our good friend Sarah Newlin doing yoga with some rather meek brown hair. Say what? And then we’re back on planet Bon Temps where the townsfolk are armed and dangerous killing any supernatural creature they can find, including Sam’s vampire protector. They even threaten Jason and Andy, but Andy shoots Mrs. Fortenberry dead (finally, someone shut...

On Monday, HBO aired filmmaker Doug Block’s 112 Weddings, A documentary that follows marriages from nuptials to current status. You can see it on HBO togo now. We love this idea at RomanceBeat.com and applaud the his entire project; too often we see the glorification of dating and then the huge wedding as the culmination of the romance.. It’s good to show the gritty and tough times too and...

What would an episode of True Blood be like without a little homoerotic fun? And so this episode opens with some hot M/M action between Erik and Jason, bare-chested no less, but, alas, it was all a dream. That Jason had. In church. And so it goes. Mayor Sam suggests to the population of Bon Temps that they clean up Arlette’s Bar & Grille because he is sure they are going to find her, as he and Vampire Bill and Sookie and Alcide are putting together a search party to try to find out where the infected troupe of vampires came from...

If you love zombies, then try to take in Zombies: The Musical in New York City before it closes this Sunday, June 29th. Zombies: A Musical is a comedy, so this is much lighten than Walking Dead. It was conceived and directed by Max Resto. The original choreography, which thankfully left out some of the cornier aspects of zombie-dance (i.e. Thriller and the not-so robot), was created by Tricia Brouk. The music by all respects was amazing with 16 songs making up the entire two-hour performance. Some personal favorites were ‘Zombie Blues’...

As a continuation of her previous nine novels, I’d say Desire Unleashed by author Leah Brooke kept to the script. There were two dominant men, a strong but submissive woman with an attitude problem and there was a certain amount of danger that threatens the fragile stability the founding fathers fought for when creating the town of Desire, Oklahoma for their women. Unfortunately, just as it is a plus that the author didn’t stray from the original plot line, it is also a hindrance to the whole series. For $9.99, I for one don’t want...

So the season opens with a blood BBQ invasion of the infected Hep V vampires and the true death of Tara in the first few minutes. Followed by fabulous Pam in Morocco playing Russian roulette looking for the equally fabulous Eric. And we learned that vampires can get stoned. Holy shit! Jessica’s hot new boyfriend was a Vietnam draft dodger who was beaten to death by his best friend’s dad and “saved” by a vampire. And Jessica is protecting Andy’s one remaining fairy daughter in the crazy one vampire/one human scheme that Mayor...
