    I am almost caught up. still need to watch last weeks episode. I agree that Lafayette is hilarious. Tara is pretty funny too. Sookie's brother is such a sleaze. ok, gotta go. gotta get ice cream before the new episode starts.

    Ha we did that too (ice cream).

    Graeters Cinnamon! Best ice cream on earth.

    Tonight's show was pretty damn good - the only thing I'll give away is that we even got more Lizzy Caplan bewbage.

    Thanks, I couldn't remember where I knew her from.

    This show isn't really doing it for me, but I still keep watching every week. I have trouble getting past the accents.

    Well, if Alan Ball created something similar and unique as Six Feet Under, you would all probably complain of redundancy. It is with this corny appeal that True Blood works. All the previous vampire shows have been dark and dreary relying heavily on the Gothic meets today's world vibe. If you've read the series, then you can see just how corny it is and well, it fits. There is something appealing to the lousy acting as if the development relies on the crass acting methods. Bringing out the werewolf element in last night's episode was saweeetttt though.

    did they show a werewolf? did i miss it? i think Sam is more than that....

    also, Stephen Root cameo was wonderfully repulsive and i like how Jason & Lizzy Caplan's characters are becoming like the trashy couple from the first episode.

    I thought Entourage was going to jump the shark last night (or should i say smoke?) Glad they pulled it back together in the second half.

    No. They eluded to Sam's lycan-esque way...I think Taryn is the one with the biggest demons and if they play the book accordingly...

    Entourage has really been stellar for me this season. I like the fact that Ari gave up a dreamjob to still maintain his roots...he is human after all.

    I like the line ari said to his assistant...you have alot of Jew hatred for a Chinaman

    I really wanted Ari to take the job, I was annoyed that he ditched it because Vince was acting like a big baby about it.

    there is no way those hippy chick's boobs were real. hot, but i'd like someone to verify that for me, lol.

    and i'm still enjoying the show, but the camp thing is running thin with me. camp + vampires is almost as prevalent as dark + angst vampires. think buffy. i'd also like to see someone dress anna in something that doesn't look like it was thrown together out of a donations bin of thin cotton mervyns wear as well.

    and yes, lafayette wins this show.

    I haven't read the books, but heard from those who have that Sam is not a werewolf, but a shape shifter. He has transformed himself into his dog a few times thru the season already, but we just don't know it yet no? I don't know Sookie's secrt, but would like to be suprised with that one.

    Well Buffy wins over all other Vampire shows, I wouldn't quite call Buffy campy more in the dark + angst group.

    re: entourage

    i thought it was about not selling it and being your own boss? i think the whole radiohead stuff last week was cheesy, but i'm glad ari stuck to being ari. it would have been a complete corporate makeover for ari, in which he ulitmately would have fucked up. i think he made the right choice, and it didn't really have to do with vince's feelings, but more the way ari likes to work. of course he had to make sure his #1 client was protected through the whole thing, but i thought it was more about calling the shots than just "making it".

    I'm a reluctant fan of the show. It has just enough to keep me interested. One thing I'm glad to see is that they've toned down the "vampires = homosexuals" allegory. It's a nifty idea to play around with, but in the first few episodes it was so heavy-handed I expected the characters to nudge each other and wink whenever they said something loaded with symbolism.

    The allegory is more noticeable in the book, I think. I agree with you on that Roberto...but you didn't see last night's episode because it was pretty much back on.

    I got into this with Ally today, and I think Ari was gun ho about the job until he talked to Vince. The reaction was not what he was looking for and I think he felt that he was Vince behind. Although the being your own boss plays into it, he still has a partner who bosses him around. I think his wife knew which way he was leaning and gave him the push in that direction.

    No, I saw it. And you're right it was definitely back, although it didn't seem quite as forced. Maybe I've gotten used to it.

    see, i think he was more just initially excited. wow, someone wants to give me a ton of power and they're willing to pay a lot of money for it. but once he thought about it, i think a number of things showed it just wasn't for him. i'm sure vince's lack of enthusiasm helped push ari into saying no, but ari is not the type of person to make decisions based on what someone else wants. ultimately, i think ari enjoys being his own player in the game rather than someone's expensive pawn.

    and back on topic, fuck you blinken, the movie is awesome!!!

    I agree that Ari is not the type of person to make decisions based on what someone else wants, and that is why it bugged me. He seems to have a huge man crush on Vince and will do anything for the guy, like going into the desert and taking shrooms(which was just plain awesome).
