Update: True Blood: Season Finale Tonight 9PM

Update 2: I have to agree with this SciFiWire post, I think the finale, well, it sucked. It left me with the same anticlimactic ‘bleh’ feeling that the second half of the BSG finale left me with. And I was thinking the same thing, What in the Frakkin Hell were Ron D Moore/Alan Ball thinking letting the first half be so ‘hot n heavy’ and the second half sooo flat? SPOILERS AHEAD!!

(…)The episode began with much promise as it picked up at Sookie’s Gran’s house, where the psychotic maenad Maryann was preparing to wed the bull god Dionysus. The town was dancing about in goddess dresses, vines wrapped about their heads and eyes black as polished obsidian as they finished off the statue of meat in the front yard with a blessed ostrich egg smeared in blood. All of the pieces were in place for True Blood to go out in a dizzyingly maniacal fashion, the kind of fang-bared orgy way we have become accustomed to, even addicted to, for the past two years. However, after the first half of the show, when Maryann was gored by what she thought was her god come to ravage her in matrimonial bliss, but actually turned out to be the shape-shifter Sam Merlotte, the energy of the show began to fizzle.

Yes, I completely understand that there were more than a handful of loose ends that needed to be tied up before the season concluded, but it could have been done in a more gripping fashion, the style that True Blood has become renowned for. It was as if a massive, fierce warship were barreling across the ocean with sails at full mast only to suddenly turn into a Duck Adventures tour boat filled with tourists. The flavor became almost cloyingly sweet at times as the townsfolk attempted to settle back into a semblance of normalcy. While there was still a hint of death and destruction, there was simply not enough to really grip the audience and make them dream vampiric fever dreams during the long months between seasons two and three. Yes, yes, not everything can be pure insanity in Bon Temps; there must be a balance, yin and yang, stability and depravity, but this is True Blood we’re speaking of. The natural order of the universe need not apply in this case.(…)

Lo Lo Bromio!

…In fact, things have turned from bad to worse with Tara and Lafayette now under Maryann’s spell while a giant egg sits on a large bed nest in Sookie’s grandma’s old room.

I’m sure you’re all with me when I say that the mystery behind the giant egg is the first thing I want uncover. It’s the weirdest thing ever but considering all the crazy stuff that’s been happening all season long, I shouldn’t be surprised anymore.

True Blood: Michelle Forbes on Maryanne…

Awesome exclusive interview with SciFiWire, go read the whole thing!!:

As the finale looms, the stage is set for one hell of a battle as the only good guys left in Bon Temps—including Sookie, Bill (Stephen Moyer), Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) and Andy—try to stop Maryann and her minions from carving the heart out of Sam so that Dionysus will finally appear. How it will all end Forbes won’t tell, but she does rank the character as one of her favorites.

“She loves her mischief and having her fun along the way,” Forbes said with a laugh. “She has a different understanding of the world and this particular plane. She doesn’t see an end in the road the way everyone else does, because she has no time constraints and no moral constraints. And in playing her it is impossible for me to see her as a villain.

But the same can be said of any character that I have played. Admiral Cain [of Battlestar Galactica], you could say she was a villain, but the beauty of Ron Moore’s writing is that there was logic in what she did and said. The thing about Maryann, too, is that the writers have always given her a beautiful logic in what she says. I just love the entire story. I had no idea where it was going in the beginning. I, however, especially with Maryann, really enjoyed the sense of not knowing.”…

Awesome!!
Finally some studio execs with sense !!!

Visit the official HBO site here

True Blood season two returned less than a year after season one began and has only been airing for a little more than a month, but it’s doing so well that HBO executives announced today that they have already picked up season three and that the plan is to return again in June 2010.

“I think one of the reasons we brought it back as soon as we did is we always felt it felt like a summer show,” said Michael Lombardo, president, programming group and west coast operations, in a press conference today in Pasadena, Calif., at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. “So the hope is to bring it back next summer.”

…HBO co-president Richard Plepler added that high ratings gave them the confidence to renew the show again. “The size of these shows has really broken through into the popular culture in a way we haven’t seen before,” Plepler said.

The executives were cagier about specific details on upcoming episodes. As fans await Evan Rachel Wood’s debut as the lesbian Vampire Queen of Louisiana, Lombardo only confirmed his own satisfaction with her footage.

“It totally delivers,” Lombardo said…
