As Seen On TV :: Sunday, August 24, 2014

In this installment of “As Seen On TV” I will give a three-sentence review of True Blood’s Thank You farewell, and episode 7 of The Strain which explores what services were rendered from Setrakian that Eichhorst will never forget. This feature will include SPOILERS, so read at your own risk and consider yourself warned.

Please share your thoughts in the comments to the shows I mini-review – I welcome all reactions, debate and discussions. Oh, and bring on the TV show recommendations, old and new.

A fanged-farewell to Bon Temps on True Blood’s series finale – “Thank You

It’s hard when you love a show but do not love the two main characters, which is the struggle I’ve had over the years with True Blood, and my not-so-fondness of Vampire Bill and Sookie Stackhouse (though I do love Sookie in the book series). For me, its always been about everyone else, so because of that I wish we’d had another hour of show with more of everyone else – but with what we did have, I loved Jessica and Hoyt’s wedding, Hoyt and Jason’s pre-wedding talk (“it puts everything in prescription for us” – oh, Jason), Arlene and Holly’s snooping around Vampire Bill’s mansion, little girl Tara and Gran’s appearance, and, of course, telemarketer’s evangilists, Pam and Eric’s, almost political looking future (here’s to New Blood and a renewed Pam and Eric lovers-love, at least it looked like that to me) – oh, and I was so glad that Sookie kept her light and staked Vampire Bill, one of the few moments where I almost liked TV Sookie in the way I love book Sookie. Thank you, for almost everything True Blood, I will miss you.

Well, who are you, cloaked vampire rebel alliance savior? A vampire-twist on The Strain’s episode 7 – “For Services Rendered

Best parts about this episode was the continuing complicated relationship between Setrakian and Eichhorst, the heroic Nanny Neeva’s saving of the Luss’ children, and the semi-introduction to what seems like the a band of vampire rebels. The latter is who I am dying to know more about, and am thrilled at the prospect that there are more than one “strain” of vampires in this universe. But, can we PLEASE find it in the plot to have Eph rid himself of the terrible wig and “shave his head”?
