I am really loving True Blood's plot.



Yes, plot.



A lot of plot is not worksafe, but some is.



Seriously - I am having such a selective viewing. Anything with Jason and his horribleness gets a skip. Ditto for Tara and her *yawn* family problems.

It's amazing how much better the show is that way. Not to mention, faster.

Certain scenes, however, need to be rewatched just to make sure I got all the plot nuances right.



God, this is such trash and I adore it.

I plan to get back to dramas soon, too much American TV is beginning to get to me.

I know I have a billion replies to make and promise to get to them but for now, it's time to confess:

I am addicted to Bill/Sookie.



The reason I formulate it like this is because so far, that is THE reason I like TB. Even if I cannot avoid a firm conviction that Sookie is, while sweet and brave, remarkably dim and with a nonexistent take on self-preservation, and is probably the kind of woman who writes letters to serial killers in prison.

I can't help it, you guys! She is so sunny and sweet and optimistically believing in good about everyone. Plus she has that adorable gap between her teeth (shut up!) And he is so old-fashioned (He is so old-fashioned he doesn't know how to truly use conditioner if his hair is any indication) and alpha (whatever - I have very TRADITIONAL preferences in my fictional men) and well-mannered and protective. And he asks for her permission to call on her and they have so much eye-fucking. He is also dark-haired and with a Southern accent. And they have ridiculous killer chemistry.



I fell for them about the moment when she saved his life and then mocked him for his prosaic name unbefitting a vampire. I am a goner.




So cheesy, so good.

So, yeah, I am watching for Bill/Sookie. It does not help that I (unpopular fandom opinion number 3) loathe the repulsive slimebag Jason - I am sure there are more mature amoebas out there. Not to mention that it is his character's fault I am subjected to those hilariously bad sex scenes. Ugh. I don't like Tara (unpopular fandom opinion number 4) because she is a total bitch (her intro scene ruined her to me for a good long while - if some sales person was that rude to me, I would have hauled off and slapped her) but she seems sort of functional so deserves better than Jason - I hope she gets over him.

As to Eric - I will take y'all's word for the fact that he gets awesome and hot in S2 but for now all I can say is his costumer, stylist, and make-up artist all hate him. He looks like a wannabe goth in pancake make-up. Alexander Skarsgaard isn't really my type at all, lookwise,* but objectively speaking, he is a very good-looking man, so I do not see why his assistants had to work so hard to make him look that bad. (The hair!!!)

* Seeing the amount of fangirls he has, he will hardly miss my devotion not being applied to him :)

Will I ever switch ships? Unlikely. Once I get a ship, I glom on like a limpet. I can sometimes lose interest in the ship for whatever reason, but then it usually means I am done with the show too - I sort of find it hard to refocus. But we'll see.

So yeah, Bill/Sookie is SO MY OTP! Eleventy! Clearly, in any show involving two vamps in love with a blonde heroine I will always go for a brunette guy over the blond one :P

I want them to have sex on a table or similar.

A few more caps from pilot )

So I'll be in my lonely Bill/Sookie corner. At least I know [livejournal.com profile] ambergold will join me :)

Here is a deliciously cheesy my for my deliciously cheesy ship:



I am using the only vamp ship icon I have. I need to get me a Bill/Sookie one.

I continue to enjoy True Blood, the HBO show about a small-town Southern waitress who can read minds and her involvement with the vampire world.

Mmmm. So shippy!



But do I risk a massive defriending if I confess that while I adore the canon OTP of Sookie/Bill (Bill is rather my type, I confess), I find the super-beloved Eric pretty unappealing: he looks like an albino redneck. Sorry! :)

Because [livejournal.com profile] angelicus's post reminded me of it.

Can I recommend a show called Roswell to you all? If you have had me friended for a couple of years, you remember how nuts I went over it: marathonning, lengthy write-ups, even fanfic.



A show that ran on WB for 3 seasons, it hit every romantic kink I had: it was my kdrama before I even knew what a kdrama was.

The protagonist of the story was Liz Parker, a 'good girl' who lived in the town of Roswell. The story starts when she gets accidentally shot during a confrontation in the diner she works at. She would have die if she wasn't healed by one Max Evans, a quiet loner who goes to her high school. You see, Max (together with sibling Isabel and friend Michael) is actually an alien...Oh, and he's been in love with Liz since childhood (how Korean!). Will Liz figure out his secret and will she get involved in the dangerous game of protecting him and his friends from the government? And we are off to an angsty, star-crossed love story with plenty of h/c, shippiness and make-outs. Liz/Max are one of my all-time TV OTPs.

Here is a general MV:



Yeah, make-outs:



(If you want more info, just click on my Roswell tag: there are tons of posts)

I have also finally started True Blood and so far I like. The leads are quite photogenic. Mmmm, vampires who look like they hit puberty!

I started reading the first of the True Blood books. It's very entertaining and trashy, two qualities that endear it to me (the heroine starts the book by describing the fact she is hot. LOL).

I think I might check out the show...

I don't care about vampires one way or another, positive or negative, but am always there if they bring on the cheesy fangy angst.
