I'm going to have the "less conscience, more ****" mantra in my head for a long, long time, because it absolutely had me cracking up.

Also, Bill/Sam dream-slash? Hawt. Bill may actually turn out to be somewhat less boring than dirt this season.

I don't know when or how I did a total 180 on Eric, but there it is. First season I wasn't into him at ALL, somewhere in the second season, though...hooboy. I'm glad to see him again. So very much of him. And how!

I can see where they're going to be taking Tara in pretty much the direction she went in the books and why. And Lafayette is still completely badass.

I have absolutely no idea why I love this show, but I do. Anna Paquin, when did you lose your ability to act?? I think watching her eating half a pecan pie made me hate her a little.

Bill is pretty boring, but I like Jessica, and I love the Jessica/Hoyt thing. I just wish she didn't get all emo and start killing people.

I hope we see a little more of the queen. She and Jessica remind me a lot of each other, actually... Both petulant little ******** except the Queen is a spoiled petulant little ***** while Jessica is a sheltered petulant little *****.

And yes, I had the same thing happen in regards to Eric as you, Ambrya. Didn't much care for him in the first season but want to see more and more of him now. And I like his assistant, who's name I can't seem to remember anymore.

Lafayette and Tara have long been my favorite characters, but I have to admit, I don't like self-indulgent, depressed Tara much. I'm tired of her getting ****** at Sookie all the time, and gobbling pills doesn't seem like something the Tara from the first season would do. And Sookie needs to fix her **** house.

Sam has long been a favorite of mine, but I don't care about his sojourn to find his family. They must be going somewhere with this, but I can't see where.

Not sure how I feel about the werewolves, but I never read the books and am not interested in starting now, so I'm not sure how that works out in the long run.

I'm going to wait until the season is over to watch these in one or two sittings because it's loosely based on book three. I currently have the latest book on hold at the library, so whatevs.

Liked it. Pretty much summed up the point of True Blood: *** and vampires.

We got a bunch of female jiggly parts.
We got Jason Stackhouse and Eric.

There's something for every one!

Other thoughts:
1. Lafayette is the man. My favorite character, always.
2. Bill was actually kinda cool in this one.
3. Eric is still my second favorite character since the second season.
4. If Sam's little sojourn to find his family doesn't involve the werewolves somehow, I'm gonna be disappointed.
5. LOL at Sam's dream.

I tried to read the books, but I wanted to shoot myself by chapter 3. The writing is HORRIBLE. And first person with the protagonist being a stupid *****? LOLNOTHANKS.

I thought that was one of the most powerful scenes I've ever seen in a television show (HBO or otherwise). I started to, like, sob when she did that...

@S3 Premier...

I thought it was good.

My favorite parts:

-Eric's ***, always welcome.
-The Bill/Sam scene was AWESOME. My friend and I were like O.O. But then she got mad when I pointed out that it was probably a dream because he drank Bill's blood. XD
-Pam pwning Lafayette.
-Lafayette pwning Tara's retarded, ****** mother.
-When Hoyt yells "Nice to meet you" when the two girls are leaving.

But I think TB is falling into the same trap Heroes did--there are too many characters. They just keep adding more and more, which means less time spent per story. And it makes the episode seem like it has ADD.

But I seriously wanted to just slam Sookie's head into a wall this whole episode. Like omg, stfu. When the episode started off with her running around screaming Bill's name I was like "Nice, we're off to a good start..."

Characters I love:
-Erik
-Bill
-Lafayette
-Pam
-Jessica
-Hoyt
-Godric :'(
-Terry

Characters I hate:
-Jason (so frickin' annoying...)
-Sookie (though she could possibly redeem herself)
-Andy
-Tara's mom
-Sheriff Deerborn

Characters I'm not a fan of, but hope they'll get better:
-the queen
-Tara
-Arlene
-Sam

I'm just hoping the werewolves are interesting, not just Vampires 2.0.

I have to say I don't mind Paquin's performance. It's alright. Granted that her character is a little to "nice" (to point of being annoying as ****) but some scenes I've seen from this season's promos give me hope she gets some attitude. And she's hot. Very. That has to count for something, eh?

As for season premiere? I liked it. Tara is becoming first grade *****, but it's nothing new. Lafayette is being his kickass self. Eric is getting more and more screen time, which is great. Bill/Sam awkwardness has potential of being hillarious distraction from main plot.

Also "Conscience off, **** on" might be best TV quote ever made. Seriously.

I'm actually starting to feel the same way. The way he looks at her gives me shivers.

And Sookie's impression of how Bill says her name had my husband and I crying, we were laughing so hard.

I'm glad that Jason and Sookie are friends again. I'm not sure what I think about James Frain as a vampire who is @#%^ing Tara (according to next week's preview).

Anna Paquin's acting was abysmal again. Anyone else notice that horrible pose she had in the doorway at Merlot's when she was talking to Terry? She gets on my nerves, but the writers know how to keep you wanting to see what happens next week.

Second episode was pretty good too, IMO. I still hate Tara, Lafayette is still the man, and Jason is still a tool; albeit one who can sack a drug dealer pretty well.

I thought the exact same thing, lol.

Not having read the series, there's still a lot of mysteries I hope to figure out. Who was the woman Jason saw? What happened to the body in Jessica's basement? Who is the English-accented vampire? What's the deal with the werewolves? Did Sam's brother try and kill him?

Edit: Hit Post too soon, ha! Looking forward to the rest of this season!

A lot of these stories aren't even covered in the books, actually. For example [Book spoiler that doesn't affect the show] lafayette is the one in back of that car with his heart cut out, so all of his arcs in the show are the product of the writers. And really, none of the minor characters get much development at all, from what I understand. They are kinda using the books as a very basic framework, and source for ideas, but moving the show the way they want to.

Episode was fine. Moved along the plot, not boring, nothing too noteworthy.

He has to comply with orders from her, since she's his maker. He wasn't too happy about it, however.

That's what I told my husband, but he didn't believe me. I guess he missed that episode where it was explained. I'm glad I wasn't going crazy.

Yeah, she raped him with his *****...vampire melodrama. I'm kinda surprised that they don't do more with the maker-directives, but I'm guessing it's a frowned upon behavior by the higher ups.

I enjoy this show but at the same time I'm mixed with my feelings now. It took me exactly 5 episodes to actually enjoy the show at the start of season 1. I got use to the whole concept and I fully enjoyed myself. The second season I was so-so about adding a new "creature". Again, I got use to it and had accepted the new role. The third season has yet again, another new "creature". Maybe I will get use to it again but I thought the show revolved around vampires. Not adding all this extra stuff in the mix.

Having read the books before the TV series came out, it's hard to know where they are going to go with the creatures, since the TV series has already diverged a **** of a lot from the books.

The books are simpler in a way, as the plot sticks with Sookie instead of diving off with so much time spent on other characters such as her brother Jason, Her friend Tara, and La Fayette. Therefore there's room in the books for Sookie to be interacting with all sorts of other people/creatures as she comes into their life and they into hers. Everything revolves around the single Sookie-plot, whom she meets, makes enemies with, and teams up with. In the books there are werewolves who become major allies, witches of which one particular witch becomes a good friend, and Sookie and Jason's lives become more entwined with other types of shapeshifting people beyond Sam. There are also fairies, who later become major plot-drivers. Major Spoiler: Sookie and Jason have a small amount (one eighth?) of fairy blood in their ancestry. This is the source of Sookie's telepathy, and the slightly added attractiveness of her blood to vampires, since Fairy-blood is like Vampire-catnip. It is the source of Jason's extra charm at attracting women sexually.

Again, one thing that the TV plot script insults Jason with is his work attitude. While the book-version Jason is generally irresponsible about life and a total ladies'-killer, he's a hard worker at his job, and respected by his crew and other townsfolk for his work. In the books the reliability of Jason to his work is a plot turner a couple of times.

Since the TV series is so different from the books, I tend to view them as two separate entities, which I both love. The TV series writing seems to focus a lot on the affects and repercussions of prejudice, alienation and rejection (of any kind, but cloaking it in the metaphor of prejudice, alienation and rejection suffered by supernaturals from nonsupernaturals) Some obvious modern parallels are prejudice against blacks, gays, and Muslims. Sometimes victimisation is the result, sometimes revenge, escalating violence and exploitation of each faction against the other.

About 9?

They are really going to have get a shake along filming the series if they want to go as long as the books do. But I have a bad feeling they'll keep us waiting for the TV series filming like last time, because Anna Paquin and Alexander Skarsgård have thriving film and theatre careers as well.

It's not a film, but I think Generation Kill is a must-see 6-part series, with Alexander Skarsgård in it. Generation Kill was obviously meant to be an ensemble piece, but Skarsgard as Sgt. Brad "Iceman" Colbert completely stole the show by the end.

PS, S3E2 finally answered my question about why the scriptwriters gave La Fayette TWO legal jobs plus high end drug-dealing/hooking on the side, along with web-**** entrepreneurship. I was really wondering where that money was going.
