We just didn't see all that.
I don't know. It's hard to say how they'll do it since they're changing so much.

That wasnt the same one, but still very good. Thank you.

That WAS Franklin. I could tell by the sillouette. Which makes sense now that I think of it. I was watching 6 today, again, and realized that when she blugeoned him, he didnt disinegrate like vampires are supposed to when they die.

I don't think Franklin is dead either. But I was wondering about the disintegrating thing...they don't seem to when they die in the show. Or am I missing it? In the books it seems like a vampire's death is a pretty neat and tidy thing but when Bill staked Longshadow - ewwwww!!!! (Poor Ginger -she's hilarious.)

Or just now when Bill staked that bald dude, or back in Season 1 when Jason's girlfriend staked Eddy. Yea, its pretty nasty. So the fact that Franklin didnt do any of those things suggests to me that hes STILL alive. Or, errrrr, well, you know, a living vampire anyway.

Debbie Pelt is prettier than I pictured her in the book, which makes sense, since I didn't really get what Alcide saw in her anyway. Crystal just doesn't seem right, however, that's not really how I pictured her.

Of course, Sookie isn't really how I picture her from reading the books, and I watched a season and a half of the show before I started reading the books.

For some reason, I picture Claudine as looking like Maryann--maybe because she was showing up in the show as I was reading the series. I dunno. Sophie-Anne and Pam are not depicted the way I read them in the novels. Sophie-Anne seems too weak and flighty, and Pam is just not at all like she is in the books, in my opinion.

Well, I did not like how the staking of Lorena went down in the show. Anyone else? I'd rather Sookie have done it herself than Bill come to her rescue.

Oh, and Crystal in the books is described as dark, with dark hair. So I guess that's why she doesn't seem right.
post #67 of 188
Absolutely I prefer the book staking of Lorena but given how they are portraying Sookie I didn't think she'd do it alone. I was wondering if it would be her at all so I was glad it was.

The scene with Claudine was remeniscent of Jason and Amy's V trips *shudder*. So hokey.

But a very good episode!

I didn't like the way they introduced the Fae storyline, and I couldn't complain to my husband, because he hasn't finished the books yet!

I love Eric and Pam and Lafayette, I am glad they kept him in. I can do without Tara at this point, although she is more interesting on the show than in the books.
post #69 of 188
OK, The whole fea-dream sequence had me going, ahhh, WHAT?!?!?! Especially with the running and dancing and nakedness. Sorry, but it had cheesecake facotry written ALL OVER IT! Just my opinion though.

I'm glad franklin will be coming back. I liked him in a crazy freakish sorta way. I was SOOOO mad when it ended at 950 pm. Immediately I screamed, THEY DID IT AGAIN!

The actress portraying Claudine is way off from the book character. I'm wondering if they are going to skip making Jason Fae.

I thought I had remembered that Crystal was dark haired also. I'm not sure why they changed how Sookie staked Lorena, it was such a good part of the book and it seemed, to me, like they lessened Sookie's character.

I totally agree about Claudine. I had a hard time even watching that part of the show. I was also thinking the same thing about Jason. It would make sense considering he was affected/effected? by Maryanne. The only other reason I can figure that Sookie might not have a blood type is because of all the vampire blood that she has ingested.

Please dish how Sookie Staked Lorena in the book. I have read the synopsis, but it didnt give much detail.
post #73 of 188
In the books, she found Bill and Lorena, then Lorena went to attack Sookie. When she did, Sookie had a stake in her hand, and Lorena fell on the stake. It was almost on accident, but Sookie did do it by herself and was glad she did it.

Was it just me or did Claudine have a British/Irish/Scottish accent? I don't think she talked that way in the books, did she?

Crystal seems WAYYYYY off! It seems like they are trying to make her a character the audience can sympathize with.

And Bill helping Sookie stake Lorena, geesh! We all know she can do that herself!

Yes, on the show she has an accent, and in the books she does not.

Hey book readers. Any relevance in Claudines comment about the water NOT being what killed sookies parents? Or is that a total show thing?
post #77 of 188
It is a book thing and I believe it is in book 8 where they talk about that.

OK, now what about the V? Or humans drinking the vampire blood at all? Is there any similarities in the books to this? Just curious because this is the first time I have ever seen or read this type of activity in Vampire mythology, whether in books or movies. Usually the recipt of vampire blood, either drinking or introvenusly, has always resulted in turning. (I have been into the whole vampire mythology for a LONG TIME, and read several different conotations of the matter)

I actually think its a pretty cool spin. V being a powerful and addictive drug, but also having the ability to cure things like cancer, aids, and asmtha.

It's mentioned in the books that people do V, but it's not a storyline.

It is in the books. Eric and the queen don't sell it in the books but it is mentioned that people do like to drink the blood and have been known to drain a vampire just to get the blood to sell or injest.
