You write a blog long enough, you’re bound to start repeating yourself.
Or just realize your pleas are going unanswered.
And after last night’s season premiere, I feel a repeat of that column — with the appropriate updates, of course — is in order:
Dear True Blood writers:
I started watching your show because of your clever ad campaign featuring vampires. They’re hot right now, as you are well aware. And Bill Compton? He’s really hot.
The first year of the series, you kept me and no doubt a lot of True Blood viewers very happy. It was all Sookie and Bill and the whole vamp storyline. Good times in Bon Temps.
Now, it’s season [four]. [Vampire Eric and Sookie seem poised to pounce upon each other.] I never thought I’d meet a vampire on True Blood to rival my love for Bill, but there [Eric] is. I want more Eric…and more Bill to battle Eric for Sookie’s affections.
But what is this? Some weirdo [woman bringing birds back to life] in the woods? In my house, we call this storyline the elongated commercial break before the real players — the vamps — come back on-screen.
The show’s called True Blood. Show us more of it.
Yep. Still works. ‘Cause it’s still true.
