True Blood: Soon to be a True Classic?


OMAHA, NE – True Blood has been scaring up a nice chunk of America since its first episode on HBO in 2007. The Vampire Drama is loosely based on a series of books written by Charlaine Harris and produced by Alan Ball for HBO.  Earlier this month, HBO announced the upcoming 7th Season of True Blood will be its last.

During the course of True Blood’s run  it picked up numerous reviews and several awards. The show also explores several contemporary social issues, including discrimination and violence against minorities, including women and gays,  power of religion, the influence of the media, the importance of family and the search for an identity.

True Blood has built up a number of memorable characters and scenes over the course of its run.  This article has numerous wonderful scenes you should be sure and check out. My favorite is the Hoyt being glamored scene. And you know any scene with Rob Kazinksy is going to be a hot one!!!

While no one knows for sure what will happen in True Blood’s Seventh and final season, members of the cast dish out some possibilities in several interviews posted across the internet.  Here’s another article with some possible spoilers.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Still Chosen.


OMAHA, NE – Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Still Chosen after all these years! Buffy, created by Joss Whedon, had some of the best stories, fight scenes and acting during its run on UPN and The WB. Buffy had some of the best villains ever created! As a Buffy fan, you enjoyed the BIG BAD for an entire season, BIG BADS like Spike and Drusilla, Glory, The Mayor and The First.  Buffy also scored with great writing, some really memorable episodes and characters as well. Who can forget the timid and nerdy Willow growing into a powerful witch, and even one season’s BIG BAD!  Or Xander and his loyal friendship to the Scoobies?  During the course of the Buffy TV series, the show was cited as one of the best TV show of all time repeatedly, including eventually being named on  TV Guide’s Top Cult Show Ever. The show never won any nomination which angered fans and media critics year after year, after the show went off the air, the TV academy aimed to make things up to its cast and crew by staging a tribute event at its headquarters in North Hollywood, but Buffy herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar, didn’t show up.   I don’t blame her.  Buffy will always be tops in my mind, and millions of fans, too!

Buffy’s House was the location of many great scenes in the series, including falling in love with Angel, to building a base to fight The First.

Below, the unaired original Buffy pilot. Many fans don’t like it. I find it kind of endearing.  😀
