I tend to look at True Blood in contrast to the books. Alan Ball has remained tremendously faithful to the novels while still improving and expanding that universe.
I can’t say I’m too happy with the introduction of Alcide Herveaux to the mix. Man his story has been so rushed, he wasn’t given a lot to do in his first appearance but was charming. Also, Sookie seems to get dumber with every episode. The bit in Lou Pine’s I wanted to smash my television when she pulled that “buy me a cosmo” bullshit.
Some smokin’ screencaps after the jump.
