Other shows about vampires and werewolves premiere this week

Television By

The Vampire Diaries ended about a month ago, but if you need to satisfy your supernatural craving (or wash the bad taste out of your mouth, it really depends), just remember that two other shows including vampires and were-creatures make their season premieres this week, too.

Tonight is the final and seventh season premiere of True Blood.

True Blood ‘Life Matters’ recap: … could the title be more obvious?

3 Recaps By

This week’s recap of True Blood’s “Life Matters” will be short and sweet. Why is that? Well, because considering it’s the penultimate episode of the glacial season six, not a whole lot happened. The episode is pretty evenly divided between Terry’s funeral/flashbacks and liberation from the vampire holding facility. Neither of them exactly rush at a breakneck speed, but they sort of leisurely unfold in some of the most sentimental moments of the season.

What’s in your DVD collection?

I woke up today and stared at this small shelf that holds up my TV in my room and realized something: I don’t have much of a DVD collection. For someone who really does love television, I’m someone with quite the anemic DVD library. And don’t even get me started on blu-ray discs.

True Blood Dead Meat review: AKA Why Anna Camp is my everything

The name of the game on this week’s True Blood was laughter; inappropriate or otherwise. After last week’s episode ended with the saccharine send-off of Nora, Eric and Bill are back to being nemeses. Remember that? How they used to, like, hate each other or whatever? It’s been too long. I like Eric and Billith at odds with one another, especially when it ends with the most ludicrous levitation and over-the-top breakdown by Eric.

True Blood ‘In the Evening’ recap: Were you hoping for more filler? Cuz you got it

“In the Evening” might just be the first instance in this season of True Blood where, I can’t really tell you what happened since not a whole lot took place, but I kinda don’t mind. See, as the end of season 6 rapidly approaches, it has finally become clear that, for most of the cast members of True Blood, there will be at least some sort of pay-off.

True Blood ‘Don’t You Feel Me’ recap

The more and more I watch True Blood it reminds me of reading Superman comics. At the end of each issue, Superman would find himself in a bind, like trapped in a burning building, only to discover at the very beginning of the next issue that he had, like, Super Breath or something so he could blow out the flames.

True Blood ‘F*ck the Pain Away’ recap

When we last left our heroine, she was half-naked holding an energy bolt to the back of Warlow’s head. Ya know, it’s weird, I always worry that these things are gonna sound weird when I write them out, but that’s about as natural as it gets, right? In true True Blood fashion, a showdown ensues where both protagonists are scantily clad.

True Blood ‘You’re No Good’ recap

When a show changes show runners, it’s only natural for the storytelling to falter a little bit. I mean, look at the unholy mess that is Supernatural’s seventh season. Now, True Blood was far from thriving when show runner Brian Buckner took the reins, but now that the third episode is over, I can’t help but wonder, with such a short season, can a show like True Blood afford to falter?

True Blood ‘The Sun’ recap

Take a show, like True Blood, which is already a half season, trim it down by a couple episodes due to your lead actress’s pregnancy and what you have is a really big problem when your second episode of the season already feels like filler. Well, maybe not filler, but this week’s episode, ‘The Sun”, took a helluva long time to say- well, to say not much at all.

We watch True Blood as a family. Is that weird?

Features By
true-blood-cast

Most families gather ’round the tube and catch up on some Disney Channel fare or maybe a good family drama — perhaps Parenthood or the new The Fosters. Even then, some may go for a wholesome multicam sitcom.

My family chooses True Blood.

As the sole person in my family (extended, to boot) who really even watches television — let alone, be a fan of some shows — there aren’t many series that we all make appointment TV together.
