True Blood Recap: Beautifully Broken

True-blood-tommy Nina Simone wrote this great song called "Mississippi Goddamn," which is an upbeat little tune about how messed up Ms. Simone's experiences in Mississippi were at the height of the Civil Rights Movement. Considering how Bill's visit to the Show Me Hospitality State* has gone so far, I'm thinking he may be borrowing a few bars from the High Priestess of Soul before too long.

Katee Sackhoff: Destroyer of Dreams

Katee-sackhoff-starbuck Fellow True Blood / Sookie Stackhouse fans, picture this, for a moment: The part of Debbie Pelt, the psychopathic batshit crazy wereanimal ex of Alcide, being played by the always awesometastic Katee Sackhoff. Starbuck the Shape-Shifter, if you will. Isn't that just perfection? Doesn't the mere thought of that casting decision make you feel all warm in the naughty bits?

New True Blood Season 3 Promo Posters

True Blood True Blood season three doesn't start until June 13, but new teaser posters are dripping out week by week and HBO better put these on some damn t-shirts like, yesterday. Despite being bloodier than pretty much anything else on TV, this show has an absolutely fantastic sense of humor:

Nurse-jackie Season Two of Nurse Jackie and United States of Tara both aired at 10 p.m. on Showtime last night.  If you missed them, (or care to watch them again because they are so damn amazing yo,) then here you go.  Don't say we never give you anything.

Treme Seems like we've been waiting on this forever, but The Wire creator David Simon's new HBO series about post-Katrina New Orleans starts April 11th. Trailer after the jump!


Getting Down To Pacifics

Band_of_brothers_hbo_miniseries__1_  Tonight was the premiere of HBO's new miniseries The Pacific and unlike Band of Brothers, I did not expect this one to be a documentary about those adorable Jonas boys. Why would I watch a documentary on The Jonas Brothers? Mind your own business. The point is The Pacific looked pretty much like Saving Private Ryan except with more palm trees and Asian people and no Tom Sizemore.  So at least it's off to a good start. Having Tom Sizemore attached to a project these days is like waking up after surgery and finding you've been accidentally stitched onto the belly of a grizzly bear who hates humans and is feeling a bit peckish and also does a lot of meth.

Big Love Recap: End of Days

Big_love_margene_nicki Honestly? This season finale was kind of tamer than I had anticipated. I think Lois chopping off Very Truly Yours Hollis Green's arm kind of spoiled me. Henceforth, any Big Love episode that doesn't end in some samurai action is kind of dull.

Big Love Recap: Next Ticket Out

Big_love_henricksons I'm concerned. There's only one episode of Big Love left and someone has already lost their arm to a machete. What can we expect for the season finale? Tarring and feathering? Disembowelment? A musical number? The horrific possibilities are endless.

Big Love Recap: Blood Atonement

Big_love_margene_barb_ring Late last night, after taking in the latest Big Love episode, I thought back to my more innocent days. Namely, my more innocent days of last week, when I naively thought that seeing Nicki pull up to a seedy motel/creepy marriage factory in a mini skirt and side ponytail and then seeing her proceed to kick ass and take names was one of the craziest things that I had seen happen on this show. Oh, what a fool I was.

Big Love Recap: Under One Roof

Big_love_bill I'll be honest. I had a really hard time tearing myself away from coverage of the Olympics to watch Big Love. I mean, how could the shenanigans of the Henricksons compare to the drama of mens' moguls or womens' speedskating? Well, after last night's episode, I'll never doubt Bill and Co. again.
