True Blood Alumni Update

Lucy-Griffiths-2

Time for a quick update of some of our favorite True Blood actors.

Eric’s Vampire sibling, actress Lucy Griffiths, is to star in AMC’s pilot Preacher – based on the (very) graphic novel of the same name. We wish Lucy all the best with this, her True Blood character was sorely underused (more wasted potential from a show that ended up being renown for it).

Joe Manganiello has joined his fellow alumni Tara Buck, in the cast of Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday.

Here are the first set of images taken during the True Blood panel held at Comic Con on Saturday July 26, 2014. There were lots of tears from the cast and fans. It was sad for me knowing this would be the last time I would be taking photos of the cast.

One of my favorite parts was hearing which character each cast member would have liked to be on the show. A lot of them said Pam! Of course since she had the most amazing wardrobe! Kristin teared up a lot of course especially talking about her last day on set with Alex-

Alex and she had just agreed to say “see you tomorrow” but it was hard. Even Alex choked up a bit she said.  Continue reading

True Blood Showrunner Brian Buckner on Season 6, the Werewolf Problem, and the Jason-Eric Sex Dream

TBS6,10050

Another interview with Brian Buckner. He talks about the finale, Jason-Eric sex dream (which we did NOT get in the finale) and a little bit on season 7 of True Blood. Excerpt of interview below:

True Blood viewers had a right to be skeptical going into the HBO series’ sixth season. Not only did series creator Alan Ball depart after production had begun, he left behind an array of painted-into-corner plotlines and a scattered storytelling structure. The task of getting True Blood back on track fell to executive producer Brian Buckner, a longtime writer on the show. Despite the behind-the-scenes upheaval, the series saw a major uptick in quality and, more important, coherence. Plotlines once seen as indicative of True Blood‘s worst instincts (e.g., Andy knocks up a faerie!) suddenly became plotlines indicative ofTrue Blood at its most inspired (Andy grapples with his daughters’ deaths). Going into Sunday’s finale, the show seemed like it was being steered by capable hands.

But afterwards, the hard-earned, still fragile goodwill the show had accrued over the season seemingly dissipated overnight. Sure, some recappers liked it, but the immediate Internet consensus was that True Blood had just hit rock bottom. So what happened? Was it the very appealing and charismatic Warlow suddenly backhanding Sookie? Was it the jarring time jump? Was it Eric Northman’s almost offensively inglorious “death”? What exactly was it that made people reject this finale as somehow not being up to par with Season 2’s ostrich egg finale? To find out, Vulture reached out to Buckner to get the first-time showrunner’s take on this negative feedback, plus ask about his intentions for season seven. We also used the opportunity to get an official confirmation about that Jason-Eric sex dream we were promised.

Some would argue that it’s the job of a showrunner to create a controversial season finale. Nice job!
Yeah. I mean I knew it was controversial, I just didn’t think it would be hate-inspiring.

Why do you think the finale fueled so much negativity?
Well, it’s testament to Alex Skarsgard. People want those ten or twelve weeks with him in their living room and they may have feared we were taking him away from them.

It was a relief to hear that Eric will be back as a regular next season. Can you also confirm that these infected vampires aren’t actually zombies?
Well, they’re not zombies in the way that we’re used to zombies. They’re vampires and they need to eat humans, which all vampires do. But in order to stave off the effects of this mutating virus, they need to eat more, and more often, than the vampires that we’ve been living with for the last few years. The truth is, the way TV works is everybody wants us to have the answers already, but we haven’t even gotten in the [writers’] room for season seven yet. We knew that this was a story that we wanted to tell for next season and the idea that we were going to force vampires and humans into uneasy relationships for their own protection seemed like a really ripe place for us to go and is going to create character combinations that we haven’t had before. In terms of what every rule of this mutating virus is, we still have to do that work.

Will the feedback you’ve received recently influence the story lines of season seven?
I don’t think so. Look, the blogosphere … This, by the way, is my very first time sitting in this chair, watching something like this happen. It is my first rodeo. But I have been making TV for a long time and I don’t think that we should let the audience tell us what show to make. Because I think it’s the death of television if we give people exactly what they expect to get every week. What’s the point? So the idea that we need to release material beforehand and immediately come clean with our audience and promise to not surprise them anymore, I’m not sure that’s the TV world that we want to deliver.

So what do you make of all these interviews from Mr. Buckner? (still smells like damage control to me)

True Blood Season 6 Finale Episode Synopsis and Title Change

tbs6weeks118_0

True Blood season 6 has had quite a few episode title changes so far. The finale for season 6 will air on August 18, 2013. The title is now “Radioactive”.  The episode synopsis from TV Guide states:

 In the sixth-season finale, Jason feels a vampire attraction firsthand; and Bill finds that salvation isn’t free. Meanwhile, Sookie considers her future with Warlow as a new crisis poses a threat to humans and vampires alike.
So many speculations have been popping up on the finale. The synopsis does not reveal too much and sounds like it will leave fans wanting more again when the finale is over. Grateful that we will have a season 7 but dreading the long wait till the new season airs! Only 3 episodes left for season 6!
The new title does sound like the song by “Imagine Dragons”. I’m wondering if the anti-vamp group has a plan to wipe out vampires that involves missiles or bombs (and things go horribly wrong making them all ‘radioactive’??)

Lyrics:

Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa

I’m waking up to ash and dust
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
I’m breathing in the chemicals

I’m breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa

I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I’m radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I’m radioactive, radioactive

I raise my flags, don my clothes
It’s a revolution, I suppose
We’re painted red to fit right in
Whoa

I’m breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa

I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I’m radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I’m radioactive, radioactive

All systems go, the sun hasn’t died
Deep in my bones, straight from inside

I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I’m radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I’m radioactive, radioactive

True Blood will air their seventh episode on Sunday. The trailer below shows some of what we will see. I spy a lot of interesting action! Spoilers!! It does not bode very well for Nora who was infected with deadly Hep V virus in last week’s episode.

The episode synopsis states:

A tragedy close to home forces Sam (Sam Trammell) to ignore Alcide’s (Joe Manganiello) warning and return to Bon Temps. Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) shows her gratitude to James (Luke Grimes), a fellow incarcerated vamp, while an emboldened Sarah (Anna Camp) exacts a measure of revenge on Jason (Ryan Kwanten
