Spoiler Alert Thursday
Sadly, due to our excitement derived from anticipating and, indeed, watching the new episode of “True Blood,” we forgot to watch “Murdoch Mysteries,” which remains more or less excellent insofar as a crime procedural set in 1896 Toronto can be. While a terrible show on the whole, Peter Outerbridge’s character in “Happy Town” remains absolutely fantastic–the creepiest television character in a long time.
With respect to “True Blood,” I like that Pam is a more important character this time around and I continue to like the Jason/Andy relationship (“Conscience off, dick on and everything will be alright”). Tara and Sookie, however, are competing for the “most intolerable and self-righteous female character in recent history” title. Eric’s ass was featured prominently, about which this person says it was unnecessary; my partner says, in reply, “Bitch, please.” The slash community, no doubt, enjoyed Sam’s fantasy about Bill, especially the “I hear the water in Arkansas is very… hard” line. Hopefully, on account of Raelle Tucker’s involvement as writer and producer (a role she also had with “Supernatural”) the fan-baiting will continue.
Speaking of “Supernatural,” I read with horror that it has been moved to a Friday 9PM death slot on The CW. To which my partner, an even bigger fan of “Supernatural” than myself says, “I don’t want the show to end, but, clearly, it is better to burn out than to fade away. That’s time tested science!”
