Moment of Geek: True Blood!

SurfTheChannel was being uncooperative today, so today's TrueBlood experience was achieved via TV Duck. Let's see.... We only got about 2 minutes of Eric-time, but it was probably a good thing. It was nice to see Bill as a competent character (mostly) after the last few episodes of him basically being tossed aside as a weak vampire. Jason Stackhouse and all his southern boy charm were at it again as he played "God" for a while. We're finally getting Tara back (now if only we can glamour the entire town of Bon Temps!) Maryanne is still a raging bitch and I can't wait for this season to be done so I can see how they get rid of her honestly. And now of course I'm also wonder, just what IS Sookie? Hrm... Questions, questions.

And now we get a new character! The Queen herself, Ms. Evan Rachel Wood (thanks, internet spoilers!) I don't really know much about her to be honest. She was in Running with Scissors (which apparently was a forgettable movie since I can't recall her or anyone else in it) and Across the Universe (which was nice visually, but was overrated I thought.) I do, however, recall her as a child in one of my favorite guilty pleasure girlie holiday films - Practical Magic, as Sandra Bullock's eldest daughter. So we'll see how this all pans out. Plus apparently she's going to be in the upcoming film American Pastoral, based on the very fantastic book by Philip Roth, so mad respect to a girl that wants to star in that (I haven't seen anything by director Phillip Noyce, but am hopeful he'll do good by the book.) Anyway... getting back to the subject at hand, here's the trailer for the next episode of True Blood!

I'm psyched for next week already!
