And is still a mess. A hot mess, to be sure (*pant* Jessica *pant*), but still more of a train wreck than not.
I can’t figure out why the writers feel the need to jam every single stupid character (of which there are far too many), into every episode. Did we need to see Sheriff Bellefleur’s bare ass and endure that scene where he’s talking to the kids of the witch-waitress-whose-name-I-can’t-even-bother-to-remember-because-she’s-simply-that-uninteresting-and-unimportant? I mean, really, who gives a crap?
And as much as I love Terry Bellefleur (the one non-supernatural guy left on the show, though I think the showrunners are going to ruin even that this season), we could have waited an episode or two before having him appear and get into a fight with his old army pal over some dark and terrible thing that happened in Iraq that is apparently coming back to kill off members of his Marine squad.
Sookie and Lafayette were basically Merry Maids this week on extended blood cleanup duty.
Tara is (unfortunately) alive. I can only hope her gunshot vampire brain means she won’t talk and simply goes around killing things without the constant whining.
Sam’s troubles with the wolf pack is so … yawn! What was I saying? Oh, yeah, I don’t care.
I’ll keep watching, but this show’s become a complete parody of itself. I remember in Season One when Bill went to speak at the Civil War meeting (whatever it was), and was given a picture of his family. It was a slow, quiet, and rather beautiful scene. His memories of the war and the ancestors of the townspeople he fought beside. I simply can’t imagine the current people behind the show doing anything remotely similar. I don’t think they have it in them.
And finally, I swear a lot (too much, probably), and I’m not offended by swearing at all, but damn, this show drops the F-bomb in just about every other sentence. It’s actually tedious to listen to the dialog anymore.
Still watching, but more because there’s nothing better on than because I’m invested or interested in what’s happening. The Authority and Russell Edgington’s return are really the only things I’m looking forward to.
