"If we had a keen vision and feeling of all ordinary human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrel's heart beat, and we should die of that roar which lies on the other side of silence." - from George Eliot’s Middlemarch
I think HBO's True Blood has just devolved into plot-less porn. And, I don't say that lightly. I love plotless porn... but pretending to have a plot and tell a story with this much sex is getting ridiculous.
[Spoiler (click to open)] Is there any real reason for these characters to be in shirtless BDSM harnesses? Seriously, they're just offering the ladies some eye candy, right? We all know this basically porn, right?
What are the writer's meetings like for this show? 'How can we show Jason fucking another lady, so he can show off his abs?' 'We need to write in a reason for Bill and Eric shirtless to appear shirtless - our ratings go up 3 points when that happens.'
Lol, True Blood. My ability to take you seriously and stay interested is rapidly decreasing. And I love porn. I just feel like I'd rather spend this hour at the gym getting into sex shape than actually watching the empty characters on the show do it.
