The Daily Beast: "True Blood's Return: Secrets From Season 3"

Hungry for more True Blood?

Head over to The Daily Beast, where you can read my latest feature, "True Blood's Return: Secrets From Season 3," where I talk about my late-night visit to the set of HBO's vampire drama and interview series creator/executive producer Alan Ball and stars Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, and Alexander Skarsgard, and new cast member Denis O'Hare about what's coming up on the third season of the deliciously addictive drama.

If that weren't enough True Blood goodness, be sure to also check out the in-depth character-based gallery, where I break down what's coming up for your favorite characters--Sookie, Bill, Eric, Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis), Tara (Rutina Wesley), Jason (Ryan Kwanten), Sam (Sam Trammell), Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll), Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten), Sophie-Anne (Evan Rachel Wood), and newbie Russell, plus the werewolves--thanks to some insight from Ball, Paquin, Moyer, Skarsgard, and O'Hare.

(You can also read my advance review of the first three episodes of Season Three of True Blood here.)

What are you most looking forward to this season on True Blood? And is the anticipation driving you insane? Head to the comments section to discuss.

Season Three of True Blood launches this Sunday evening at 9 pm ET/PT on HBO.

Great article. What an awarding experience it must have been to actually visit the set of such a great and successful show. I am excited to see the love triangle that is Sookie, Bill and Eric. I am also excited to see the impact that the werewolves will have on the show. Another great interest of mine is the contest and comparison of True Blood and Twilight. Both release their next chapters this month with TB season 3 vs Eclipse. True Blood is winning on my TB vs Twilight release poll on
I'm sure the turn out for both vamp shows will be blood sucking!

Great piece on The Daily Beast! Can't wait for the premiere! I had forgotten some things from last season so your piece reminded me of where we left off with a lot of the characters and filled me in on the gaps in my memory! So Thanks!

Pilot Inspektor: CBS' "Smith"

I may just have to change my original "What I'll Be Watching This Fall" post, as I sat down and finally watched CBS' new crime drama Smith this weekend. (What? It's taken me a long time to make my way through the stack of pilot DVDs.) While it's on following Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars on Tuesday nights (10 pm ET/PT, to be exact), I'm going to be sure to leave enough room on my TiVo to make sure that I catch this compelling, amoral drama. While one can't help but be impressed by what might just be the most marquee-friendly cast in primetime--Ray Liotta, Virginia Madsen, Jonny Lee Miller, Amy Smart, Simon Baker, and Franky G all star and Shohreh Aghdashloo has a recurring role--the pilot's premise alone earned major points in my book: it's a crime drama from the point of view of the criminals, who engage in high-stakes heists. But don't be alarmed; it's nothing like NBC's short-lived Heist . Instead, think of it as The Italian

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous season

The Daily Beast: "How The Killing Went Wrong"

While the uproar over the U.S. version of The Killing has quieted, the show is still a pale imitation of the Danish series on which it is based. Over at The Daily Beast, you can read my latest feature, "How The Killing Went Wrong," in which I look at how The Killing has handled itself during its second season, and compare it to the stunning and electrifying original Danish series, Forbrydelsen , on which it is based. (I recently watched all 20 episodes of Forbrydelsen over a few evenings.) The original is a mind-blowing and gut-wrenching work of genius. It’s not necessary to rehash the anger that followed in the wake of the conclusion last June of the first season of AMC’s mystery drama The Killing, based on Søren Sveistrup’s landmark Danish show Forbrydelsen, which follows the murder of a schoolgirl and its impact on the people whose lives the investigation touches upon. What followed were irate reviews, burnished with the “burning intensity of 10,000 white-hot suns
