  • “General Hospital.” If you aren’t watching this, then you are basically a douche without any taste in television. Yes, the Kristina stories are a little annoying and, yes, her new study partner looks like an Indianwerewolf from “Twilight,” but that is besides the point: the whole Franco storyline is basically some of the best television writing in the history of television writing. Given that I don’t care for Nicolas and have no investment in Elizabeth and the whole cover-up that it is actually Lucky’s baby, I’m really hoping for a miscarriage.
  • “True Blood.” While events in the most recent episode seem to suggest that Eric’s loyalties are with Sophie-Anne insofar as he suggested to the Magister that Bill was responsible for the blood being sold, the more likely resolution to this is that Eric suspects that Russell is involved with the werewolves and will use this to justify a visit to Mississippi. Obviously, this will result in Godric related flashbacks. Given that Franklin is obviously an evil version of Bill (they both “procure”), it would seem that Bill’s turn to evil is more than likely a cover to further infiltrate Russell’s organization.
  • There was, to the best of my knowledge, nothing else on TV this week–with the exception of “The Gates,” but we’ll pretend that it never happened. Afterall, most TV viewers are already pretending that it doesn’t exist.
  • I am saddened to read that “Human Target,” by far the best new show of last season, has been moved to a Friday night death slot. This creates complications because “Supernatural” has also been moved to Friday nights to die a terrible death. “Caprica,” which originally aired on Fridays, will presumably remain in the same slot. Basically: three great “genre” shows all in the exact same time slot. Idiots.

  2. All this vampire politics stuff makes me realize I need to go back and watch season 1 — I started with 2, as that was the only Netflix we had at the time, and now I think I’m missing something.

  3. 1)I’m stoked that HBO just snagged Dustin Hoffman for next year’s Luck, screenplay by the amazing David Milch.
    2)Speaking of Milch, has anyone watched John from Cincinnati?
    3)C, way to stick it to A.

  4. The first season lays the grounds for the Newlins in the second season. The vampire political hierarchy is opaque in the first season. However, it is clear that Bill and Eric may, in some sense, respect one another, they certainly don’t care for one another.
