Upcoming Best and Worst of Season 4 Series

Dear Readers,

I will do a series that lists Talktrueblood’s Best and Worst of Season 4. Various catergories will be voted on by my readers (PLEASE PARTICIPATE) and I will also give my own opinion along with the results later on.

Eventually I will recap the final episodes, as painful as that may be.

-Kat

P.S- I will also be doing a body language analysis of the couch scene eventually UGH.

No internet

Dear Readers, I have been going without reliable internet for a while now and have been incredibly busy so that’s why my posting has been off for a few weeks. However, this week it will get fixed and I will be able to post like I used to. Sorry I wasn’t able to get a real recap up this week. Hopefully I can do a special double recap and a few other postings to make up for it. Thank you for your patience and your loyalty, Kat

Body Language of the **NEW True Blood Entertainment Weekly Covers**

Thank you new reader   @b_azinga   for the suggestion! This is dedicated to you!

Entertainment Weekly, as many of you may already know, released three different covers seemingly so that fans could pick up their favorite couple from the news stands (Sookie with Eric, Bill, or Alcide). BUT there seems to be a lot more to the covers than that and maybe Entertainment Weekly is subtly inserting their own insight into the love triangle  square!………………

First of all, American Gothic by Grant Wood is typically interpreted as a painting that is meant to be ‘a critical depiction of American Rural Life,’ which connects with part of the nature of the show “True Blood”:

NOW for the Body Language of the Covers:

Alright, Sookie looks pretty comfortable with Alcide and she trusts him even to look head and stand pretty close to him. She stands pretty even with him (almost considering him her equal) and Alcide’s slanted eyebrows indicate his seriousness about protecting her. Her jaw line is even and her head is slightly tilted to the side (pointing toward him) which indicates her conciously willingness to get closer to him.

But, Sookie STANDS EVEN CLOSER TO ERIC! Her breast is even touching his arm (ha ha). Therefore, Sookie is even more comfortable with Eric than Alcide and Eric shows his dominance and his protective nature by standing in front of her (of course, the exposed fangs indicates his domination as well as his seriousness about protecting her as we know about vampires on True Blood). Her jaw line is also even and her head is also slightly tilted to the side (pointing toward Eric as well), which indicates her conscious willingness to get closer to him as well.

 

Wow, Look at Sookie’s face (it’s completely different from the other two pictures of course). Her head is not slightly pointed toward him like it is in the other pictures and her jaw line is more raised and stiffer which indicates her conscious willingness to get away from Bill as well as her fear about him. She also indicates her lack of trust in Bill by giving him a hard stare in order to watch him closely, rather than looking ahead. This looks pretty bad for Bill to me. Bill stands slightly in front of Sookie to show his dominance and the vampire face show’s his seriousness about protecting her of course but Sookie is clearly not comfortable with Bill having this role in her life right now…….

……SOOOO….

I think Entertainment Weekly has already picked their list of Best to Worst Suitors for Sookie (even if it appears they are simply giving the readers options for their favorite couple (as Pro-Bill sites would have you believe):

1. Eric

2. Alcide

3. Bill

Notice and Disclaimer

Dear Readers,

Recently, my personal life was invaded by a woman who sent an anonymous letter from Boston to my boss at my personal job to complain about me because she was offended by my views on DPD (dependent personality disorder) contained within the article on Sookie’s Psychology. While I realize that these views on Sookie may be offensive for those who actually possess the disorder, I simply made an analysis of the character presented on the screen in connection with the knowledge of psychology I have obtained in college classes as well as personal research and was not attempting to attack people who have the disorder, cause damage to their psyches, or provide them with medical advice.  I am very sorry this person was offended to such a degree, but I think it was out-of-line to invade my personal life in such a manner because they wanted to lodge a complaint against me.

DISCLAIMER: 

I do not claim and have never claimed advanced qualifications in the field of psychology and I am not offering medical or legal advice on this blog. I have not claimed advanced qualifications in any field in which I may use to interpret material on the show True Blood; I have also never claimed to offer advice in any of these fields. My knowledge of these subjects is based on my personal knowledge and research on them, therefore it should be taken as nothing other than my opinion of the research as it relates to True Blood. Because the material on True Blood is for mature audiences and contains offensive material,  it should be expected that the material on a blog containing interpretations of the show should be considered a place for mature audiences accepting that they may be offended by the material shown or discussed. I am sorry that people may not agree with my interpretations or may be personally offended by them. However,  this is a fantasy show for mature audiences containing offensive material and therefore, my blog should be considered to be in that same category. Therefore, all readers should be able to accept this risk and also accept that I should not be held personally or professionally liable for any negative reactions that occur as a result of reading or responding to the material contained within this blog. 

** All future complaints should be directed to me through many means of contact that are easy to access, including my facebook page or twitter** I can provide email addresses as necessary** If I attempt to respond to all comments directed to me on this page, then I will certainly listen to any type of criticism directed at me or the material contained within my blog**

Just as I am within my rights to use the internet to present personal views on a television show containing offensive material, you are well within your rights to use internet mediums (outside of our mutual personal lives) to launch complaints against me if you so choose.

Thank you,

Kat (Talktrueblood)

The Four Month Hiatus

Dear Readers of TTB,

I have had an especially difficult time in my life over the last four months and decided to take a break when it comes to blogging over the past four months. I appreciate the continued interest in my blog and plan on continuing this blog of course soon now that I have reached some stability in my personal life.  I am also a perfectionist sometimes so I often do not post articles and did not post articles I did not think were quality articles.

The next article will be titled Psychology on True Blood and of course there are several more marinating around in my head.

Some episodes may also be revisited and compared to earlier episodes.

I love all my readers and again THANK YOU,

TTB (Kat)

Welcome to TalkTrueBlood

I would like to share the ramblings of my scattered but detailed brain and also hear the ramblings of anyone else that might be keen to join in. I love a good discussion, especially a True Blood discussion.  I am open-minded so I am happy to read and discuss ANY opinions or theories/speculation and of course I will be discussing my own as well. I will give an episode by episode recap/discussion starting from Episode 3.03. I will also provide links to favorite blog entries other than my own of course.

I have been inspired to start this blog in part due to my obsession with True Blood and in part with my obsession with the blogs of others.

My favorite female characters (excluding 

Sookie of course) are the two ladies to the left < —————

My favorite male characters are numerous but if I had to pick three (as of now) I would say they are Eric, Jason, and Bill (though I am beginning to be throughly entertained by Russell and Franklin). Though I am a big Eric/Sookie fan, I welcome Bill and Alcide fans that wish to challenge me (no Quinn since he isn’t on true blood yet).
