Honestly, that might have been my favorite episode of the series. Of course that could be related to the fact that there was a ton of Eric and he was in a tank top.

I love Godric, he's so very Gandhi and makes an excellent point about evolution seeing as he's actually witnessed it. Oh and Jason totally redeemed himself, the smackdown of Steve was great, and he had the line of the night.

I do agree that the Maryanne plot is wearing thin, and that there needs to be more Lafayette. I love that man.

I finally figured out who the actress who plays Maryanne is! She was in the movie "Kalifornia" with David Duchovny, Brad Pitt and Juliette Lewis. I liked that movie a lot, and her specifically.

I like the idea of Godric, but I don't think the actor who plays him is very good; he's just not convincing to me at all for the lines Godric is given to say.

I like Sookie, but Bill is getting on my nerves. He is always pissed off or super serious and he's never happy or never smiles . . . even Eric smiles, and I consider him a fairly serious vampire. Bill is just one-note: angry . . . Ooooh boy, please! Can I be in a relationship with him? Fun. Not!

Having said all that, this is still my favorite show on television right now. I just hope the next episode is better than this 'Timebomb' one was.

Bill should not be in the same frame with Eric.

Each time it happens his stock goes down a bit.


He held his own with Sam.

But Eric is no Sam.

Now, Deep, just say that the actor who plays Godric cannot at all convincingly play strong, powerful, authoritative, or worthy of being revered, and then we can begin a true (blood) romance.

All the vampires (except Jessica and maybe Bill's maker) have that one-note kind of look. Bill's is angry, Eric's is bored, Eric's bitch's (I forgot her name) is extremely bored. Sam and Lafayette are probably the best actors of the bunch. Everyone else (especially Tara and Sookie) overact but, hey, it's a TV show and it's highly entertaining.

I know Maryanne from "In Treatment". She and her mole annoyed me in that show but while I'm tiring of her character in this, she's pretty good.

I know Michelle Forbes/Maryanne from her days as Ensign Ro Laren on Star Trek TNG. Yes, I'm a geek.

As for the acting, it's not groundbreaking, but it's entertaining. I love the line delivery on Eric, Pam, Jessica and Lafayette. Jessica's impersonation of Bill was freaking hilarious.

Knowing that vampires heal, I wondered if they'd go there. And they did. Poor Jessica!

Holy Crap. This show just keeps getting better and better. I actually got misty at the end. Oh and yeah Eric owns,
 
when he's crying, when he's naked, when he's outsmarking sookie, when he's smirking, pretty much all the time.

That episode was simultaneously awesome and terrible. Some weak scenes (it seems that whenever they reminisce on grandma I fall asleep), but plenty of great ones too.

Seriously though: Eric. Oh lordy. I used to not like him much. How did he suddenly morph into the sexiest and baddest of vampires? All of a sudden I'm bored with Bill. I can't blame Sookie, not at all.

Finally some action for Lafayette, too. I hope it's him who ends up killing Maryanne somehow!

Yup, definitely my favorite moment of the episode was Lafayette beating the crap out of Eggs.

The last sequence on the roof was very nicely done as well, and the last shot of the episode was I think the only time I can remember the show not ending on some crazy cliffhanger moment. Good change of style there.

It's Tuesday already. Where are my fellow fangbangers? I was kind of out of it when I watched this week's episode. I need to watch it again but Lafayette rules everything.

The highlight for me was Jason. The quote of the night was Sam's "Smite Me, Motherf@$#er". The last two episodes are going to be epic.
