And because it was born of a decade that comes with a particular stigma (one that posits the ’90s sucked for horror), it isn’t discussed all that much, but I think Taylor Hackford’s film is pretty solid.

True Blood Recap: Episode 709 ‘ Love is to Die’
I think I have accepted that True Blood is a “chick show.” The violence, the fighting, the monsters are all gone. But for me, that just leaves a hell of a lot less that is interesting. And they have wrapped up all the interesting storylines: Tara and her mom; Violet…well, okay, I guess those were the most interesting storylines. But have you noticed that in the last few episodes, Hep V has barely even been mentioned? And we haven’t had any attacks from Hep V vamps since the first couple episodes. I miss those junkie psychopaths. Bill has decided that he doesn’t want the cure. Worse, he can’t/won’t explain why. Some nonsense about accepting his fate. He later admits to Eric that he is doing it for Sookie. Anyway, Sookie and Jessica don’t take this very well. Sookie slaps him until Eric makes her stop, while Jessica asks to be released. Bill abides.
