Well, at least I found out what boot and rally means.

My understanding of the "must be Thursday!" comment, was that her life was always going to be crazy and overrun with supes. These are now ordinary days for Sookie.
I started reading the books a few weeks ago and I last night I finished the one that aligns with this season. I really don't mind the extension of storylines beyond what was in the book, but it took me a while to make the connection between the book and the ONE aspect of the story that seems to be happening on the show this season.
A few thoughts:
- If they hadn't turned Tara into a perpetual victim from the beginning, I would have been interested in seeing the Tara-Mickey storyline. He sounded like a much more insidious character than Franklin was on the show (more intentionally cruel whereas Franklin on the show was just crazy).
- I'm starting to get an inkling why people want to see Quinn on the show. :nod
- Calvin Norris was really a much more interesting character than they let him be in the show. The whole Hotshot storyline was handled far better in the books.
- I thought the entire side story about werewolf politics was quite interesting, but I guess we are only going to get vamp politics with The Authority.
- Bill on the show strikes me as quite different than Bill in the books. Is it just me? I think book Bill strikes me as less predictable.
I've given up hope for Quinn. They totally miscast Claude, so I'd expect they'd cast some little 5 foot scrawny thing as Quinn and expect us to believe he's a weretiger. Pff.
At this point, BookBill and TVShowBill resemble each other in name only. I wonder if AB would have followed the books more, with respect to that character, if Stephen and Anna hadn't ended up together. While I'm happy for them personally, I hate Bill and Sookie together. The books aren't about that relationship past about book 2.
There were things that AB changed from the books that made sense, from a narrative perspective, but there are other changes that have been completely unnecessary. I'm much happier now that I just consider the show fan fiction for the books. While the last several books in the series haven't been the best, they're certainly not the muddled mess that the show is turning into.
I've given up hope that ANY characters are going to get killed off. They'll just keep adding more and more characters until each episode will just be dozens of little scenes where nothing ever happens.
Well the episodes are getting whacky, but the pace is quick so the story is moving on. Who would have thought Russell would kill of Roman that quickly. The previews look downright screwy.
No way is Roman dead. That stake wasn't all the way in and he hadn't exploded. Someone will save him - likely Bill and/or Eric.
Plus,Click to see Spoiler:Chris Meloni is signed on for at least 11 episodes this season, so he's not going anywhere. At least not yet.
Right now, I only care about the vamp storyline and the were/shifter storyline. The whole fire monster and Jesus/Lafayette/ Brujo nonsense is just that - nonsense. Same with the fairy club and the made-up story about Sookie and Jason's parents being killed by vamps instead of fairies.
I was totally bored by Jessica and Hoyt tonight.
