True Blood—You guys, Sookie ruins everything! This week, Lafayette (or rather the devil that lives somewhere inside him) got so enraged at her for telling Alcide about Debbie (even though she didn’t mention him in the story) that he rigged her car’s brakes and almost killed her before she rolled out onto the road. She promptly went home and emptied her liquor cabinet. Meantime, Bill and Eric are back and hunting for Russell. Their first stop is to see Pam, because she and Sookie are the only ones who knew where Russell was buried. Bill keepsTara out of the room (Pam, finally feeling her maker oats, had saved her from frying in the tanning bed by commanding her to get out of it) while Eric grills Pam rather violently. It’s obvious after a while that she knows nothing and they ultimately have a sweet scene where he releases her as his progeny. Strange, but sweet. Pam ends up coachingTara through her first biting (and not draining of) a live human, who she explains are now hers to enjoy instead of always being hurt by them when she was one. The Authority storyline went on with Roman staking the kid vampire for draining a human. How very “sanguinista” of him! Nora’s still alive—for now. Unlike Sam’s shifter friends, who are dead. Not sure why. Jason and Andy went to a Fairy version of Studio 54 where Andy saw his Fairy hook up from last season and Jason ran into his cousin, who let drop that vampires killed his parents before being dragged away. Also, Terry and Scott Foley did some stuff but it was boring and creepy.

    What do you guys think of THE NEWSROOM?

    We talked about it a little amongs ourselves – Myndi still hasn’t seen episode 2 as of this writing. I’m not quite on board yet – I feel like I’m being lectured, and the fact that the show seems poised to have a confrontational interview every week means a weekly straw man to get shredded by Sorkin’s stand-in. (It’s something that’s always bugged me about his TV work.) Still, the characters are mostly appealing, so I’m waiting it out for a bit yet. And in the interest of full disclosure, I may not be giving it a fair shake because of Sorkin’s oft-reiterated belief that Internet writers are all bitter failures. That’s always in the back of my head.

    one gentle question: wtf is a turd wig?

    i’ve googled and googled, and found no absolute reference that makes any sense, but i did learn a new bar joke.

    please educate your humble commenter.

    First off, I apologize for anything you may have learned by Googling “Turd Wig”.

    It’s actually a line from last week’s “Bunk” – at one point the announcer said “We’re gonna need a turd wig because sh*t is getting ugly.” And since we keep it classy around here, I couldn’t possibly pass that up as a title.

    I don’t know if it makes any MORE sense now, but that’s where we got it from.

    How we long for the simpler days of “Beefsquatch!” Thanks for reading, cub! Larry–I promise to get caught up on Newsroom in the next couple days and give you my thoughts…I don’t have quite the same issues with Sorkin, though I completely see what EJ is saying. I felt that way with Studio 60, for sure.

  6. cub says:

    EJ and Myndi,
    thanks for answering. i watch CB!B! but avoid BUNK due to gross foot phobia and that guy’s voice– (neither of which bothered me/were present when he worked w/K.Schall, iirc)–beefsquatch, indeed!

    Working with Kristin Schall makes everybody more appealing!
