  Well I hate to say I told you so, but I told you so. This episode is an improvement over last week’s episode. Lots of storylines take a big step forward, and set up nicely for what should be an excellent episode 6. So here are my thoughts on episode 5, “I Hate You, I Love You”   How about that, Tommy’s storyline gets to lead off an episode! Just when I was wondering why they kept him around. His storyline didn’t seem to be going anywhere important. Who cares if he rips off Hoyt’s mom, but killing his parents is a whole other issue. Tommy shouldn’t feel bad because they got what they deserved. Maybe this is the event that will finally bring the brothers Merlotte together… or not. And who knew gators like marshmallows?   After a not so funny episode 4, this episode has some pretty interesting scenes. Let me start with Arlene, Terry, and The Baby. Terry calls in some reinforcements and gets Tara’s mom and now husband Reverend Daniels. He may need to call in the reinforcements for the


  Florida SuperCon 6 took place on the 4 th of July weekend this year. Unfortunately for me that meant I wouldn’t be able to attend all four days of the convention. Yes, this year they expanded it to four days of fun. I could barely handle three days last year, so I give a lot of credit out to anyone who survived four days worth of SuperCon. I attended the convention on Saturday, and as I did last year, I want to take you through my adventure.   Just like last year, I attended mostly events that were horror related. The first event that I went to was “Meet the Florida Ghost Team.” I met them last year, but it was good to hear from different members of the team this time. They talked about several interesting topics, one of which was the personalities of their team. Some are spiritual minded, while others are more scientific minded. They said having a balance of both personalities was important in their investigations. It helps them rule out reasons for possible spiritual events hap


  I know True Blood fans want to be excited about each and every episode, but let’s be real here. Episode 4 is not all that memorable when compared to the previous three episodes. I thought last week’s episode was down a notch after the first two, but I got ahead of myself. Episode 3 is far better than this one. I’m starting to see a trend between my thoughts on season 3 and now my thoughts on season 4. So here are my thoughts on episode 4, “I’m Alive and On Fire.”   One of the reasons this episode isn’t that great is that there aren’t too many lines to choose from for my favorite line of the week. Episode 3 had so many great lines they should have leant this episode some of them. Besides laughing at Eric’s new odd behavior, there isn’t much to laugh at. I almost don’t even want to do a favorite line of the night, but that wouldn’t feel right. So almost by default, I give my favorite line of the night to Sookie when she said, “you drank the whole fairy!” That is two weeks in a row


  “Of the three first episodes, this was the least awe inspiring one. The storylines just progressed, but nothing really stood out, except for that unusual ending (which I will get to).” That is how I started off my thoughts on episode three from last season, and I think I feel the same way after this season’s third episode. The storylines just progressed, some more than others, which all led up to a great finish. Mix in a bunch of great one-liners, and that is episode 3. So here are my thoughts on episode 3, “If You Love Me, Why Am I Dyin’?”   The episode opens with a scene of Sookie trying to drive away from Eric, and him just scaring her. That proved my point that the end of last week’s episode would have made for a better opening scene for this episode. The conversation they have after he catches up to her is fine, but it is stupid to have her drive then run away from him. Sookie knows better than that. She is not going to speed away from Eric in that yellow car, or out run him


     Really, Lego zombies? You are telling me that Lego sells Lego zombies? There are Legos from movies such as, Toy Story, Harry Potter, and Star Wars. There are also all kinds of Lego figures such as, “Kimono Girl,” “Surfer Girl,” “Sailor,” and “Hazmat Guy,” but zombies? Well, I guess so because I found the apparently kid friendly official Lego “Zombie:" “Slow in speed and even slower of mind, the lumbering Zombie may look a little scary, but he’s completely harmless in every way. Everything he does is slow, mindless and repetitive, from zoning out while watching TV, to waiting in line at the grocery store, to stacking one brick on top of another to build a perfectly even, completely featureless wall that stretches along for miles and miles. If you interrupt him, he’ll just stare at you blankly before going back to whatever he was doing before. If you put an obstacle in front of him, he’ll keep bumping into it over and over again until someone turns him around. If you pick hi


  After a terrific season premiere, I wondered if they could continue to build on the strong momentum going into episode 2. Everyone is always excited about a season premiere so it is easy to like the first episode, but it is up to the show to keep the viewer’s attention. It definitely kept my attention as most of the storylines took the next step forward, as they were very intriguing, and mysterious. So here are my thoughts on True Blood episode 2, “You Smell Like Dinner.”   The episode starts off in a serious situation for Jason, but in typical Jason fashion there is something to laugh about. As the camera pulls away from him, Timbo is licking the wound on his head. Jason wants him to knock it off, as he mentions he is more of a “band-aid kind of guy.” I like how Jason points out that Timbo cares about him otherwise he wouldn’t be licking him.   Jason’s situation continues to change as the episode goes on. From serious to funny, back to serious when Felton walks in the room. I qu
