    TRUE BLOOD Recap: “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” | Collider

    As for “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” it still felt fractured, but it also actually moved. As for the missteps, the Sheriff Dearborne stuff all happened way too fast and was far too obvious (why bring him back in the episode where a dragon is mentioned except – wait – he’s involved! Again, that subtlety thing). But the best bit was most certainly that Patrick and the Ifrit were laid to rest. If there wasn’t anyone shouting for Patrick to shut up and bleed out by that point just be to be done with that story, I would be surprised.

    The good stuff from the episode included pieces of the show that felt like early True Blood. Lafayette is back to being his sassy self, Sookie is in her room trying to uncover mysteries in an oversized cat shirt from Wal-Mart, Tara and Pam exchange the best lines of the episode (of course) and Fangtasia became relevant again. There was even a little full-frontal male nudity thrown in, just for kicks!

    In the end, “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” has set up some great tension for the final three episodes of this season, with Bill and Eric fighting against each other (or Eric knocking some sense into him) and Sookie and the others gearing up for war. Let’s hope the final episodes actually follow-through.

    Grade: B

    Musings and Miscellanea:

    – John Rezig as Deputy Ellis slays every scene he’s in. According to IMDB he’s from Fort Wayne, Indiana, but I want to know more about this accent he’s affected.

    – Pam: “That doesn’t make us Oprah and Gayle.” Tara: “Suck it, vampire Barbie.”

    – Oh goodness, Alcide’s man-pain set to classic rock was almost too much for me. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Him teaming up with Papa may make for some fun, though.

    – Nora looks a lot better with a side part in her hair.

    – “I am not Whoopi Goldberg in Ghost. I am way cuter.” – Lafayette

    – Sam and Luna actually using their powers proactively was great – the flies as well as the pig rescue were nice little moments.

    – Did anyone else find it weirdly funny how no one noticed that Hoyt was being quietly eaten by hogs until a drugged-up Sookie pointed it out?

    – “I am not Gmail for dead bitches!” – Lafayette

    – Why are dead people always so cryptic?

    – Also, Lafayette never takes his medium abilities seriously, but something always ends up happening with it. You would think he would learn.

    – I love that Eric’s perma-face now is simply “oh my God, I am surrounded by idiots.” You are, sir, you certainly are.

    – Not gonna lie, I would love to have my fairie family just drop in anytime and bring me soup and give me the news of the day. Or maybe just Claude. But I still want the soup.
    some good points

    HBO Orders BUDA BRIDGE Pilot From BULLHEAD Director Michael Roskam | Collider

    HBO is bringing together a triple powerhouse of talent to head up its pilot script for Buda Bridge. At the center of the it all is Michael Roskam, who received an Oscar nom in Best Foreign-Language Film for his Belgian production Bullhead. Roskam is set to write and direct the pilot, as well as executive produce. Sharing the producer credit is Michael Mann, who partnered up with David Milch last year for the fantastic (but belegured) horse racing series Luck (also on HBO). Finishing out the trio is Mark Johnson, an executive producer on Breaking Bad. That credit speaks for itself.

    Buda Bridge is a Belgian-set crime story set in a Brussels of the near future. A woman is found dead on Buda Bridge, which leads to violent crimes and oddities that unleashes mayhem on the capital city. Twin Peaks: Europe? For more background on the project and the trailer for Bullhead, hit the jump.

    Roskam’s film Bullhead was lauded for its striking portrayal of the cattle industry, specifically the practice of injecting animals with a synthetic growth hormone, a desperate situation mirrored by the plight film’s protagonist (Matthias Schoenaerts). Apparently, both Johnson and Mann sought Roskam out after seeing the film, hoping to do a project together. Roskam – luckily – had an idea for a TV series at the ready (always be prepared!) which has manifested in Buda Bridge.
    anyone seen Bullhead? I SOOOOO want to see it, supposed to be brutal.

    So is [REDACTED] now gone from True Blood for good? | Blastr

    So yeah. ______'s exit from True Blood was surprisingly sad. Pretty damned effective, until they ruin it all, as they do with everything, and bring him back. Starting to like the Thelma & Louise vampire story(thank god they killed that Alexis Arquette looking vampire sheriff). Already tired of the fairies/Sookie thing, hard to care at all. Like Bill turning, but they will bone that too. Feel bad for the vamp i/t gal. And congrats Alan Ball, you have managed to make Russell Edgington boring, except for that whole 'let's break into zee german accent' deal.

    I still don't believe he's really turned. Especially the way he and Eric looked at each other once Russell brought up fairies..

    Still don't like Tara, but killing that guy in the bar with the "oh you've got to be kidding me" reaction from Pam was pretty funny.

    Man, was Eric's capitulation completely insincere or what? Pretty crappy job there. At least with Bill you had him showing off all the new toys to his baby vamp...I am sure you are right, but at least there is a smidgen of doubt in my mind there. They killed the toe sucking coroner too...not cool, I kinda liked him...the chopsticks were a nice touch though. Is it just me or was the 500 year old fairy pregnant? Why have that and not make mention of it? Seemed kind of odd. And yeah, Pam & Tara make for some interesting laughs. It's the best Tara has been all show long. Question...how can they do their makeup if they can't see their reflections?

    True Blood recap: Someone says goodbye in Gone, Gone, Gone

    Ok, so here is your preggo fairy explanation...

    but we did have a couple of perfunctory scenes with Andy including a reminder that he's in a relationship with Holly. Meanwhile, his one night stand Maurella is now very pregnant in Fairy Land (she's also 500 years old, and the fairy who translated the scroll for Sookie and Jason). Anyone interested in the possibility of an Andy/Holly/Maurella love triangle? Yeah, I didn't think so.
