In this episode, everybody hurts. So let’s all go be emo basketball shorts vampires after the jump!
Alright, alright, alright. I didn’t recap last week’s episode because it was a lot too rapey for me. And too terrible to talk about. But mostly too rapey. Usually I don’t mind the divergences from the book, although it would have been better if amnesiac Eric had been naked like in the books, but the change in the Hot Shot plotline from the books is just gross. In the books, the people in Hot Shot are insular and certainly different, but they are not the garbage monster stereotypes they are on the show. Anyway, now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s go behind the jump for this week’s hopefully less-rapey doings.
No recap this week. I tried, I really did, but the grossness of this episode, particularly the last scene in Hot Shot, defeated me. Also, Lala needs to rest. I checked the rules and it seems that I reserve the right to cancel one recap each season. It’s right there in the bylaws, underneath the heading “Not The Maryann Kind.” So I’m canceling this one!
[One bright spot of this episode–ASkars, you sir, are brutally hot.] Anyway, I’ll be back at the regularly scheduled time next week. Auf wiedersehen!

Hi! Hi! Sorry! Hi!
We’ve been rilly, rilly busy with work and life things. But not so busy that we couldn’t watch two entire cable series without posting anything at all about them!
We watched Game of Thrones and The Killing in their entirety. Guess who we think SHOULD have lost their head! Find out, after the jump!
Dear readers, we humbly apologize for being late with this recap. Two of us are moving and one of us is easily distracted by shiny objects. That would be me. The shiny objects would be the Emmys. True Blood didn’t win any, but they did provide us with an entertaining award presentation where we got to see exactly how much taller than Stephen Moyer Alexander Skarsgard is. But let’s focus on the show. I know, it’s hard, because not much happened in this episode until the very end, but sometimes, we have to eat our vegetables before we can have our deserts.
C’mon in! Eric assures us the sun is fine!
