    I don't miss Quinn either. Sophie Anne was great in the books. They did have boring parts where CH really overdid it with the detail. Although, it really did paint a great picture for the characters and town of Bon Temps.

I don't miss Quinn though, or the banal minutiae of Sookie's day - woke up, made coffee and toast, did a load of laundry, picked up a few groceries and some library books, arrived at Merlotte's and put bag away (in the bottom drawer Sam let the waitresses use for that very purpose!) filled up napkin holders then reminded the reader of the menu (burgers, chicken strips, salad with chicken strips on top) and all the other fascinating details of a typical day in the life of the world's most boring telepath.

    oh and of course if she had a date with Eric there would also be a description of the most hideous outfit the 1980's ever rejected. Sexy!

    I don't know why I do this to myself and keep watching this POS show. They ruined the series and CH ruined it with the last fucking book. One big disappointment after another. Could have done so much with this show, but no! They added shit characters, like Tara's mother...who ever the fuck came up with that story line should be shot! Every time that useless bitch comes on the screen I want to break shit. Fuck you True Blood creators, fuck you. I'm glad this show is ending, and I hope your careers do as well. I would hate for one of these assholes to get a hold of another series I love and fuck it all to hell.

    Come on! The show was NEVER "Good". It's our generation's "Batman" TV show.

    Then, was there every really anything to ruin? I always thought it was one big hot mess. But I loved it anyway.

    I have been reading the books for years, and was really excited for the show and it was one big fat disappointment for me. They could have done so much with it, like following the books... but, instead they put out a big pile of shit. So yes, it was ruined for me.

    Okay, I thought you were saying the series was good but got bad. I definitely understand the disappointment of deviating wildly from the book.

    I can't quit this show now, no matter how bad it sucks. I'll tough it out til the end.

    Those are the two best points of the show and I'm pretty sure that is his real name

    So is the season just going to be a blood bath? Jesus.

    Spoilers in white: Alcide's death caught me way off guard. Good riddance Maxine Fortenberry.

    Wow Bill is looking really old. Those scenes where he was up in the tree were not a good angle for old Billy. And Sookie's whole "bait" plan was kind of redundant every time she shouted up the tree at the vampire not very successfully hiding there - don't vamps have super hearing? Wouldn't one of the hep-v vamps have wondered who that delicious-smelling girl was yelling at?

    Alcide - meh.

    I actually thought the show was really good, at first. It went downhill fast, but I still thought it was entertaining and pretty good. Now, it's terrible. Do they have any budget at all this season? It looks like something a bunch of college kids filmed.
