    Thanks for the link above too! Fantastic!
    Season 3 includes some of Book 3 (Club Dead) I believe. Alan has included some of the Book storylines into each of the corresponding seasons, but he mixes it up, maybe enhances the plots is a better way of explaining it. Since he has the sole rights to the HBO series, he can veer away from the books any time he wants, and he does embellish to enrich the series experience. I love the books, but I also love the series ...... similar and different tastes. Alan Ball is a creative genius IMO.

    Wolves Get Meaty Roles in "True Blood" Vampire Series - WSJ.com

    LOS ANGELES—Producers on the HBO vampire series "True Blood" were in a race to finish several scenes last month. But their deadline wasn't about budgets or air dates. They needed to wrap the episodes before the wolves shed their winter coats.

    "We had to work on their timeline," says executive producer Gregg Fienberg. A lighter summer coat would make the 120-pound gray wolves, cast in werewolf roles, look smaller and less menacing. "We can't suddenly have wolves that look different."

    Television producers are used to working with high-maintenance stars. But the popularity of the vampire genre, which all of a sudden has embraced werewolves, has some productions learning to deal with wolf actors. Big-budget movies can afford to craft expensive computer-generated werewolves, but TV, with its smaller budgets, must often rely on the real thing.

    Re: True Blood (HBO)

    What's with the comment in that article about the vampire genre "all of a sudden" embracing weres? I wasn't aware that was a new thing.

    During the the panel discussion for the Ultimate Fan Experience, AB talks about how, when determining where they take the show, they go to the books first. They may use things from later books in season 3, but that's where they go first. Although I'm not a fan of Sookie-Bill, I'm going to trust AB that he's headed somewhere good for Sookie-Eric fans. Remember, Sookie and Bill's break-up was fairly abrupt in the books, so they can't do that on TB. He'll probably have much more of a triangle long-term before she, hopefully, ends up with Eric, at least for a while.

    I normally have a hard time watching panel discussion videos like the ones at Comic-Con, because I can't hear everyone. Those events are set up for the people in the room to hear, but they're not great on video. The Michael Ausiello panel interview was really good because there weren't women screaming every 2 seconds and they taped it for broadcast. so the sound was good.

    All in all, that panel discussion is about 45 minutes long and well worth it. My favorite part was when AB and Anna were answering a question about whether Sookie's attraction to Eric was just because she'd had his blood and then, from off camera, Alex says "It's not just the blood!"

    Re: True Blood (HBO)

    Thank you for mentioning the panel, because I really enjoyed it as well. It is one thing to watch performers in their roles, but quite another to see them in their own element discussing the characters they play. It helps me to appreciate their performances that much more, the contrast sometimes is so remarkable. Watching the camaraderie between them, and hearing how much they enjoy their characters, makes the individuals that much more endearing.

    Thank you for sharing it

    June 13 there is a bit of a preshow starting at 8:45pm before the season premiere. I am not sure if it is to refresh us (the viewing audience) about the previous season or to set us up for the new season.

    From Kristen Dos Santos on EOnline. Tasty treats ahead...


    Spoiler Chat: Hooray for Vampire Porn! True Blood Sexes Up Third Season

    Today 3:55 PM PDT by Kristin Dos Santos


    Anybody else counting the minutes til Vampire Porn returns?

    Or, wait. What 's its real name? Oh right, True Blood. And having just watched the first batch of fangtastic episodes of the third season—which starts this Sunday on HBO—I can tell you: The Vamp-Porn is back, baby! In fact, this season has more eye-popping and jaw-dropping sex scenes than ever before. And you fans know, that's sayin' something.

    So who's doing the dirty? And what else can you expect? Put the kiddies to bed and read on for scoop on True Blood, Glee, Dexter and more...
    True Blood, Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer John P. Johnson/HBO

    Randall: I saw on Twitter that you got the first few episodes of True Blood. Please let us know what you think!

    I think I'm so very grateful for Alan Ball and his cast and crew right now, because the next few months of TV would be looking so bleak if not for this Sunday's return of TB. It's just as gripping and shocking and hilarious as before, and you can keep reading for more juice! Also, I'm going to be interviewing the entire True Blood cast tomorrow night at the show's premiere party in Hollywood, so please help me out with some good questions by tweeting them to me @kristindsantos!

    Wendell: What's the word on True Blood? Are Sookie and Bill really over?

    They're so not in a happy place. But one of them will be in a sexy place. Here's what I can tell you about the first three episodes: Either Bill or Sookie has sex with someone, and it is hands-down the most unforgettable (you will have dreams/nightmares afterward!) sex scenes in the entire run of True Blood so far. Here's what else you can expect from the first three episodes:

    1. Someone tries to commit suicide.
    2. Someone tries to kill a sibling.
    3. Someone loses his head.
    4. Someone is pregnant.
    5. Someone has a one night stand--and it's the last person you'd expect.
    6. Someone has an underground sex marathon--and it's the first person you'd expect.
    7. There are more bare backsides than a gym locker room, and one belongs to one Mr. Alexander Skaarsgård. This just in from Alan Ball: You're welcome.

    Re: True Blood (HBO)

    Pregnant? Who on earth....it can't be Sookie. Tara? Sounds like they're going to start off with a bang. And, yay for number 7 on that list!

    The latest minisode with Jason and the black panther - are they going to bring that storyline in this season? They're killing me with all these teases.

    Sunday can't get here fast enough!
    It was me. I let the dogs out.
