True Blood

The 20 Sexiest ‘True Blood’ Characters, Ranked

For all that the show originally promised to provide some interesting social commentary and a new spin on the the well-worked trope of vampirism, True Blood‘s charms have ultimately lain in its characters, who are pretty much all unfeasibly attractive and have unfeasible amounts of sex with one another. At least two of Flavorwire’s regular staffers have stuck with the show from start to finish, and yeah, if we’re honest, it was always about the sex. So, in advance of Sunday’s series finale, here’s a lighthearted look back at the sexiest characters on the show, ranked from #20 to… Read More

Why Ted Cruz and ‘True Blood’ Are Mortal Enemies

Amusing, if entirely predictable, news: Republican Rising Star™ and generally fun guy Ted Cruz is less than pleased with his unscheduled guest appearance on True Blood this week. In case you missed it, a fictional Bush Library gala for Ted Cruz featured as the setting for an almighty shitfight involving yakuza, Texas Republicans, security guards, and two very angry vampires. Cruz was unimpressed, taking to his Facebook page to complain that “[HBO] aired a misogynist and profanity-ridden episode where Texas Republicans are murdered attending a ‘Ted Cruz fundraiser.’ Well, I’m sorry to have lost the vampire vote, but am astonished (and amused) that HBO is suggesting that hard-core leftists are blood-sucking fiends.” Drum roll, please. Yes, folks, Ted’s here all week. Try the veal. … Read More

‘True Blood’ Season 7 Episode 4 Recap: The Aftermath

No TV show says summer to us more than True Blood, its Southern Gothic atmosphere and pulpy pleasures providing the perfect complement to sweaty evenings spent drinking mint juleps at home after another exhausting day in the hot sun. The show alternately drives us crazy and enthralls us, and its final season is as silly as ever. This week: more death! More blood! And the birth of Fangtasia! … Read More

‘True Blood’ Season 7 Episode 3 Recap: “Fire in the Hole”

With apologies to those who are truly broken up about what happened on True Blood last night (details after the jump), I’d argue that the only great thing about the show’s giant, unwieldy ensemble is that it leaves enough room some truly shocking character deaths — especially in this final season. Amid all the speechifying and sex and belabored subtext, these moments seem to be the only plot points that can drive this flabby and confused story forward. … Read More

‘True Blood’ Season 6 Episode 2 Recap: They’re All Going to Burn

No TV show says summer to us more than True Blood, its Southern Gothic atmosphere and pulpy pleasures providing the perfect complement to sweaty evenings spent drinking mint juleps at home after another exhausting day in the hot sun. The show alternately drives us crazy and enthralls us, and even though these days it’s more of the former than the latter, we keep coming back for more. This week: is the whole rounding-up-the-vampires plot going where we think it’s going? And if so, yikes. … Read More

‘True Blood’ Season 6 Premiere Recap: Which Character Drove Us Craziest This Week?

Yesssssssss True Blood is back! TV’s greatest ongoing bait-and-switch returns for another reason — lest we forget, the show’s first season promised to be some sort of vaguely serious exploration of what it might mean if vampires really were part of society, before taking a sharp left turn into the sort of high camp supernatural soap opera that allegedly highbrow TV aficionados can’t quite believe they find themselves addicted to watching. People like your correspondent, for instance. This season Flavorwire will be adopting various approaches to recapping the show, but for now, let’s stick with last season’s format, because with a new season comes a whole slew of new storylines, new characters… and new annoyances. So, who irritated us most last night? Read on, True Blood suckers… … Read More
