Nary a sexxxytime in the finale, so let’s re-live some classic sexxxytime moments of TB.
You were the only two that mattered
This show was originally about Sookie and Bill. In the end it was too l guess. But by the end, Eric and Pam were the only two I cared about. Happy for the way they ended at least.
Grade(s): Episode: D. Season: F. Series: B-. I was all ready to give this finale an F, I swear! I really wanted to. 40 minutes of a wedding story? Kill me with a stake. But then they went and did 2 good things, actually going ahead and killing Bill, and getting a Led Zeppelin song to play over the end, which included some Pam and Eric awesomeness. Are Page and Plant going broke? Anyway, those things, and I guess Andy as wedding officiant, saved this from an F. Now, I still don’t understand why Bill wanted to die. If he wanted to be with his family, he should have offed himself centuries ago. Why did curable Hep V change that? And who the hell is Sookie’s love now? I understand the symbolism, she’s moved on, bla bla, but throw me a bone here writers. I guess the relative happy endings for everyone was nice, but I was really hoping for some big surprise, some big something, and I got a dinner party on the lawn. As for the season, well, we can forget it ever happened, because it was totally useless.
As for the series, it’s probably too early to judge it as a whole, we should let our thoughts linger and carefully consider our opinions. HA! Not on these here internets. All in all, the series was, uh, fine I guess. I will certainly remember it as the witty fun and sexy vamp summertime romp it was at its best. I am not sure the crappiness of the later seasons takes away from that. It diminishes it, certainly, but there was a time when we all loved this show. I’ll try to hang on to that. B- sounds about right.
And on that note, well, goodbye! I’m kinda sad! I’ll miss snarking, and I’ll miss you guys. Thanks to the readers. Thanks to the commentors, especially bea and steve who stuck it out with us to the end. And thanks to Wrap for being my awesome partner in crime for this whole wacky ride. Whose stupid idea was this?
