'True Blood' Recap - 'Bad Blood'

6/15/2010 9:25am EDT
True Blood
HBO has provided some incredible television for their hard working (and high paying) customers, but it's rare that a show catches fire the way True Blood has. This show achieved critical acclaim from the beginning, with people promising that Alan Ball has created more than just 'another vampire show,' and each season grew in popularity and viewership. Season three has premiered to high numbers, and with the momentum it has, it has a real chance of becoming the best rated show HBO has ever had. Does it deserve this? Hell yes. The marketing is brilliant but it does not lie; True Blood is back...

6/10/2010 12:50pm EDT
True Blood
Season three of HBO's gothic drama "True Blood" promises sex, danger, violence, scary werewolves, and even scarier new vampires. One of the most buzzed-about series since "The Sopranos" is premiering on June 13 to some hungry fans. Last summer, the show really began to boil, registering with both critics and audiences: At 4.3 million viewers an episode, it doubled its season 1 ratings. "It was a breakthrough season in terms of feeling like it became part of pop culture," says Michael Lombardo, HBO's head of programming. "It was the sort of show I started hearing people talk about on Mon...

Anna Paquin
Anna Paquin showed up at the "True Blood" season three Los Angeles premiere on Tuesday in a very bright blue and black dress. She looks pretty good, but we're not big fans of the shiny material used for the frock. What do you think?

The actress, who recently stated publicly that she's bisexual, doesn't understand why her sexual orientation is such a big deal. She insists it was never a big secret.

Anna is engaged to marry her vampire co-star Stephen Moyer, and she told Zap2it, "I'm not someone who endlessly talks about her personal life for no reason, but obviously, as someone who identi...

Anna Paquin

The actress, who is engaged to marry her True Blood co-star Stephen Moyer, announced her sexual orientation as part of a Public Service Announcement (PSA) taped for Cyndi Lauper's True Colors Fund, which fights for the rights of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) community.

Alexander Skarsgard Talks About Graphic Gay Scene In 'True Blood'

5/13/2010 8:40am EDT
True Blood
"True Blood" actor Alexander Skarsgard is eager to take on nudity and same-sex trysts if the role calls for it.

He explains, "I'm not a prude at all. I shot a very, very graphic scene two days ago with a man. I am from Sweden, and it's different there. If it makes sense, I'll just do it. And to me, so far, it's made sense every single time I've got naked or made out on the show."

According to, "True Blood’s" new gay vampire Talbot (Theo Alexander), will cheat on his 3,000-year-old boyfriend of 700 years, King of Mississippi Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare), with one o...

The marketing brains behind hit TV vampire drama True Blood have teamed up with men's magazine Playboy to turn the publication's latest naked Playmate into a 3D nude.

Hottest Vampires

The Top Hottest Vampires
Forget werewolves and witches, vampires have taken a bite out of pop culture and they're not going down without a fight. From films to fashion, gorgeous bloodsuckers are everywhere and causing a major heat wave as the biggest trend of 2009. Twilight may have caused thousands of teenagers to join Team Edward, but these seductive creatures have been captivating audiences for decades.

What's not to love about them? They're forever young, enchanting, seemingly unattainable, sometimes romantic, and always amazing in the sack. Some are tortured, while others just enjoy a good bloodbath. Fortu...

'True Blood' Recap: Evan Rachel Wood Disappoints, People Act Stupid

8/31/2009 11:44am EDT
True Blood
"True Blood" is a pretty remarkable show in that the second season eclipsed the first one in terms of writing and excellent acting, which was a big deal since the first season was critically acclaimed and beloved already. There are a lot of fans who say that they liked the premiere season, but they've started to love it this season. Every episode has been strong and interesting and weird, so it stands to reason that one episode eventually had to suck. Just so that "True Blood" didn't get too arrogant. This was that episode. It didn't suck so much as ... it was kind of treading water getting...

'True Blood' Recap: Jason To The Rescue, Sookie's New Power & More

8/24/2009 11:40am EDT
True Blood
"True Blood" I have a bone to pick with you. Now I love you very much, especially when you go crazy on me, but the most recent episode was only 45 minutes long. That is at least 10 minutes less than what we're used to, and the shortness was definitely felt. There are only two episodes left, and I expect them to be excruciatingly long to make up for it, got it?

The show opens with Sookie dreaming about Eric again, and while it does establish her softening toward him, they're becoming slightly annoying. DreamEric is most definitely not Eric, and hopefully Sookie needs to de-Twilight her th...

Recap: 'True Blood' Final Scene Is The Most Emotional To Date

True Blood
Why do you have to hurt us so, "True Blood?" The more we love you, the more you hurt us. Sniff. A lot of things are shifting on this show now, as Bon Temps officially goes to hell and Dallas is wrapped up with a lot of grief and pain on the horizon. Eric proves his humanity is still intact, which is not good news for Bill at all, and Godric meets the sun. Damnit.

The show opens a few minutes before the bomb goes off, and then Bill goes flying inside to see how his beloved Sookie is. There is blood and guts everywhere, proving that more than a few vampires and humans died, including the c...

'True Blood' Makes An Impression At Comic-Con

7/29/2009 11:53am EDT
True Blood
When "True Blood" first premiered on HBO last year, it already had quite an eager and excited audience. Perhaps it was the viral ads that HBO kept running, or the vampire-mania that was beginning to get attention again, but at least some of it had to do with its strong, vocal presence at the San Diego Comic Con. Thousands of people saw huge posters all over the con advertising the show and got a few first looks, so this year at a comic con it was like the cast was coming home to an inbuilt fanbase. Almost every major actor on the show appeared at the panel, and Ballroom 20, one of the large...

Anna Paquin and Kristen Stewart are both in love with vampires. Oh, and did we mention these girls love the actors in real life too?

On True Blood, Paquin's Sookie Stackhouse sleeps with vampire Bill (Stephen Moyer). In real life, they are a confirmed couple. Recent reports suggested the 26-year-old actress and her 39-year-old British beau were "heading to the altar," but they were dismissed by Paquin's publicist.

In Twilight, Stewart's Bella has a deep connection with vampire Edward (Robert Pattinson). The two actors have not publicly confirmed they are dating, but rumors have swi...

The second season of HBO's True Blood promises to be sexier, gorier, funnier and deeper than the first season, according to creator Alan Ball. He's absolutely right.

Starpulse had a chance to review the upcoming season's first four episodes and participate in a conference call with Ball. "The show is really finding its identity," he explained. And it's an identity we can really sink our teeth into.

Since season one finished last year, there have been some developments on the "True Blood" set. Anna Paquin & Stephen Moyer, who play star-crossed lovers Sookie, a human, & Bill, a vampir...

Best TV Couples That Aren't Together - But Should Be

2/13/2009 9:00am EST
There are a few unifying themes that you can find in almost any television show: drama, comedy, and yes, even a touch of romance. Comedies have plenty of drama (Hello Pam/Jim drama in The Office) and drama can have moments of comedy (everything Hurley says on Lost), but they all tend to have a focus on relationships. Even Law & Order, a cut and dry procedural, has a pairing here and there.

Yet there's a rule for shows that if a couple has great chemistry and sexual tension, don't let them get them together! It'll ruin the show! This has been the case a few times, but here are a few no...

'True Blood' Recap: Sookie Meets Vampire Bill

"True Blood" smashes vampire stereotypes in the first five minutes. A grizzled dirty convenience store clerk with hooded eyes and tattoos winds up being just that - a clerk - while a hunter with a pot belly turns out to be the real vamp. The other initial bloodsucker sighting is a severe looking blonde woman on TV advocating vampire rights. These vampires are not wearing black trench coats or seducing people with their eyes. They're not particularly attractive or graceful. They almost blend in.

But for someone like Louisiana waitress Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), vampires stan...

Vampire Series 'True Blood' Debuts Sept. 7 On HBO

In the not-too-distant future, vampires have come out of the coffin. Thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood, vampires no longer need humans for their fix and can walk freely, if not yet comfortably, among their living counterparts – though they can still come out only at night.

Meanwhile, in the backwoods Louisiana town of Bon Temps, Sookie Stackhouse works as a waitress at the down-home bar Merlotte's. Though outwardly normal, she has unusual qualities of her own: Sookie can read minds, which complicates her world in endless ways. But Sookie's life gets a lot more in...
