True Blood, Sunday 9:00 EST, HBO
Watchers, the season is half over already! How did that happen?! As is usually the case, lots happened in this episode.
I must say, I find Marnie creepy even when she isn’t possessed. I am very curious to see where this storyline will go, and at some point plan to read the book and see how they differ.
What do you think of the budding relationship between Jason and Jessica? In a way, it’s kind of sweet, as they seem to kind of “get” one another, but the whole best-friends-with-Hoyt situation poses a problem. And it seems as though Jason’s situation may be changing.
And, boy – does Sam ever have some damage control with Luna, huh? I got a kick out of Tommy’s mannerisms, body movements, and speech patterns coming from Sam — very well done.
The scene between Eric and Bill was so heartfelt and touching, especially what Eric said about Sookie, and this one was definitely my favorite this week. I still REALLY like Amnesiac Eric. The show started a couple of minutes late, so it ran over, and my DVR cut off the last one or two minutes, which I watched when it repeated later that night. I had originally written something else here, but after seeing those final moments, we know that Bill let Eric go on his own.
My favorite quote: “I hardly know any regular humans anymore” (Sookie to Jason).
Watchers, what are you enjoying most this season? Which storylines and characters are your favorites?
Warehouse 13, Monday 9:00 EST, SyFy
In this episode we didn’t get any more information regarding the shadowy organization, but we got a lot of Pete’s background, and some of Steve’s, as well.
I do like the aspect of the two teams, as I feel they are handling all of the characters so well and giving us two cool artifact stories every episode. What do you think?
I really feel as though this show hits it right on both characters and inventive storylines. A recent TV Guide article described the show as whimsical, and I think that’s the perfect adjective. If you had to pick, which aspect of the show is your favorite and why?
Haven, Friday 10:00 EST, SyFy (Brit)
This episode for me was a sleeper until the last fifteen minutes. Basically it seemed as if they were adapting Stephen King’s Maximum Overdrive for the small screen. Anything mechanical in Haven began to attack humans.
The part that interested me was Audrey 2’s storyline. She found coordinates in the paperback book that Audrey 1 had in the first episode. She follows the directions to a small island and finds an old cabin. Once inside things change dramatically for her. I won’t give anything away in case you haven’t seen the episode.
The one scene I got a kick out of was Duke dancing. He appeared to be doing the trademark Elvis shimmy. I did get a new insult out of this episode, “motherless scumbag”.
This episode was a take it or leave it, but I still am looking forward to the next show. What did you think?
What else have you been watching this week? I did not talk about Torchwood, but I have been watching – have you?
