HAHAHAHAHAHAOMG I TOTALLY REMEMBER THAT SHOW TOO!!!
Nostalgic references now qualify as comedy, apparently. Score one for Jimmy Fallon.
Let’s take a point away from Mark Paul though, for reminding everyone why no one’s really ever taken him seriously.
Weird Al makes me wish I didn’t have ears. Or that maybe that I was functionally retarded, so that maybe I could enjoy his music on the level it was intended.
I realize that hyperbolic negativity is a lot more fun to write, but don’t you think you’re being a little harsh? TRUE BLOOD is far from perfect, but once you get past Alan Ball’s soap boxing (a skill picked up from years of watching SIX FEET UNDER), it’s a pretty fun camp-horror show. It lacks the depth of other HBO greats, but that’s hardly a reason to discount the show. And calling it one of the worst shows on television, well that suggests that you either don’t watch enough television, or that you’re just a geek who doesn’t want something with all that kissin’ to be so popular.
In all serious, genre fans should take the success of TRUE BLOOD to be a fucking great thing. Execs at HBO will be far more willing to greenlight genre television now. Imagine a show with the artistic value of LOST or BATTLESTAR produced with the creative freedom HBO offers their show-runners. It’ll be a good time to be alive, kids.
