Ooh a War! Maybe That'll Thin the Ranks of Irritating Characters: "True Blood" Season Six Trailer

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trailers | May 28, 2013 | Comments ()


"Game of Thrones" is almost done for another season, which means that HBO turns to its summer replacement fare of boobs and blood, the never quite as bad or good as you remember "True Blood". There are a couple of fullish trailers available now, which I have selflessly embedded below. Now with 100% less Bill growling while covered in blood:

Anyone else reminded of Principal Snider from Buffy? I mean the bad one not the nice one, eaten by the mayor, played by the guy who always played Ferengi on various iterations of "Star Trek"? Yeah, that speech doesn't come across to me at all as a powerful public figure laying down the law and channeling Churchill. It just reminds me of the poor principal trying to tell the three story tall demon snake that it was interrupting this proper occasion.

Here's a second trailer, which does a little better at highlighting Jason being a moron, which has always been an important secondary theme of the series:

Perhaps now the series can get back to the core dramatic themes of the novels: going to the post office and sunbathing. Either that or they can just kill the entire cast except for Pam and Lafayette and they can go on a road trip. That might be the best move.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    They definitely need to clean house - even if they don't want to kill off a lot of characters, not ALL of them need their own story lines all the time.

    I'm getting tired of hearing whingeing about about going to the post office and sunbathing. I've read all the books, including the last one, and these scenes were pretty obviously included to show Sookie moving away from the vampire life and back towards her (relatively) ordinary, small town human life. I don't have a problem with that.

    My pet theory is folks are just petulant that C.H. stopped writing steamy sex sequences.

    Make it stop!

    I love how Alcide just randomly rips his shirt off without any explaination.

  • You've summed up the entire reason I watch this show.

  • dizzylucy

    You say that like he's capable of doing anything else.

  • Rocabarra

    Needs more Eric and Alcide chest shots. Also, kill the Billith storyline and this season just might stand a chance at being awesomely camp once again.

  • Something, something, hot Eric, something, something, shirtless Joe, something, Jessica in a schoolgirl outfit, something something, Pam and also Lafayette, but sadly not in the same place. I'm sorry, was there a plot point I about which I was supposed to care?
