Tag Archive: Werewolves


Remember last season, how Jason was so into killing? He saw it as something noble and righteous.

Well, he’s not thinking those things now.

Nice to see some remorse from him. I wasn’t expecting that.

Ooooh, creepy. Poor Lafayette is still having all sorts of Pam/Eric problems. While I’m not happy with Tara’s apparent character arc, I like her strong and sassy, I must say that all and all, this looks absolutely fantastic.

Love the peek at Debbie Pelt, Franklin Mott and Russel Edginton that we’re getting. Seems that their characters and roles have been beefed up considerably.

And it’s also nice to see Sophie-Anne again.

I’m just getting caught up on all the True Blood goodness that came out over the course of this last week. First, here’s the latest promotional poster

Sam and his little sisterSecond, we have the latest minisode, this time starring our favorite southern gentlevamp, Bill Compton

Next is a clip of Sookie confronting Eric about Bill’s disappearance. Six hours and he still scopes out Sook’s cleavage… TWICE!

And finally there are some leaked photos of Sam and Bill experiencing a little of the same temptation as Sookie and Eric through their blood bond….

Bill and SamOoooh, steamy! I know a large portion of the viewing audience is going to be excited about this.

Are you?

Feeling Better Sam?

I’m beginning to think I should rename this blog “True Blood – All The Time” given the amount of TB related stuff I’ve been posting lately.

Should I be dialing it back?

While you’re considering, here’s the latest mini episode, this time starring our favorite canine.

Bewere - True BloodMeh! You would think the poster introducing the werewolves would be a little more interesting. I do have to admit, I like the play on words.

More True Blood goodies! They are really ramping the promotions up, but I wish they would do another video like they did last season with Bob Dylan’s Beyond Here Lies Nothin. That was fun.

So, what do you think? Is that Alcide, or Debbie?

Jason’s alone in the woods, with some blond, getting into all sorts of trouble.  You’d think he’d learn.

Number 4 in the Waiting Sucks… video teasers from HBO.

So, what do you think he’s up to, besides the obvious.

If you read the comments from my Perfection post, then you would have heard that I’ve been having a hard time cleaning the lipstick stains off my monitor thanks to the lovely high def photo I have of this month’s Details magazine cover featuring Alexander Skarsgård, aka Eric Northman, from True Blood.

Well hold on to your hats ladies, because there are in fact three True Blood covers this month: Alexander Skarsgård, Ryan Kwanten, and Stephen Moyer.

Ryan Kwaten, Alexander Skarsgard and Stephen Moyer

Damn! I think my monitor just melted.

High res images will come as soon as I can find them.

Get your straightjackets…..

Brit Morgan as Debbie Pelt… silver bullets and wolfsbane, because there’s a new werewolf in town, and she’s nutso!

Debbie Pelt, otherwise know as Alcide Herveaux crazy-assed-homicidal-not-so-ex girlfriend has been cast. Joining the Bon Temps irregulars is Brit Morgan who was last seen in ABC’s The Middlemen.

Apparently, Ball has beefed up Debbie’s role in season 3, which was already pretty extensive:

“She’s going to be in more episodes, so maybe that will have an impact on [what actress] we can get for her, which is a big question right now.”

And with that final bit of work complete, all of season 3’s major roles have now been cast.

Lois SmithIn other very welcome news, it seems we may not have seen the last of Sookie’s beloved Gran, played by the beautiful Lois Smith. According to Alan Ball:

“There’s a chance. I don’t think she’s gonna come back and go like, ‘Oh, you know what? I’m not dead!’ But she certainly can appear in flashbacks or in visions or perhaps there’s a different reality that someone might go into.”

Now that is very welcome news.

Thoughts, opinions, silverware?

Dylan Meconis - Heroine of the HourOne of the things I wanted to write about when I started this blog was comics, web based comics in particular. One of the reasons being is that I really enjoy them, I have a list that I hit everyday. Another reason is that a lot of the comics I’ve found online are written and/or drawn by women. It seems women artists and writers have really carved out a niche for themselves by producing online comics, unlike in the mainstream where they are still very much in the minority.

Dylan Meconis - Bite MeAt any rate, one of the writer/artists I’ve been following for the last six months or so is Dylan Meconis. Her webcomic, Bite Me!, is a hilarious mash up of Revolutionary France and the Interview with a Vampire mythos.  It’s a lot of fun and I highly recommend it, especially if you’re getting sick of all the sparkly vampires we’ve been inundated with recently.

Dylan completed posting that comic a little over a year ago (she finished writing and drawing it back in 2004)  and has been working and posting her latest project, Family Man, since 2006.

Family Man is more serious in tone than Bite Me!, although you will probably recognize a character or two. The protagonist, Luther Levy is struggling with questions of faith, race, and truth, both personal, academic and supernatural. There is no doubting that the setting, Germany during The Age of Reason, has been meticulously researched – you should see Dylan’s reading list.  So much so, that the story has yet to hit the main thrust of the narrative, even after four years of very hard work.  That is how vast the canvas that Dylan is using to paint her story.

Luther Levy - Family Man by Dylan MeconisDylan only updates the comic once a week, on Wednesdays, so it may seem very slow to see the story develop. Truth be told,  it often feels like we are on the geological timescale.  The good news is that the time frame works in the reader’s favour, as it provides the artist the time required to to draw some amazingly detailed images (check out the library!) The art is so rich you can practically smell the books and hear the scratching of the quill pens.  The atmosphere is further enhanced by the use of sepia tones, instead of full colour or black and white.  The colour palette really sets the tone for the story being told here.

Luther’s adventures are only beginning and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for him now that he’s getting settled into his new life at the university.

I hope you enjoy Family Man. Let me know what you think.

BTW, if you do enjoy Family Man, you can pre-order Volume 1 at Dylan’s Temple of Commerce.  You can also pick up the printed edition of Bite Me! which would make an excellent Mother’s Day gift – hint, hint!

Find out more about Dylan’s at Heroine of the Hour, her online portfolio and live journal.
