True Blood Season 4: Episode 1 Recap
June 30, 2011 - Brandi Bowers
Ok, so the wait is over and True Blood is finally here! The show premiered on Sunday. Did you watch? What did you think? Apparently a lot of people watched because it tied for it's highest ratings. Of course, I was extremely excited to see the show, but I have to say, I walked away from the episode being less excited.
I thought a good bit of it was strange, and for True Blood, that's saying a lot. Spoiler Alert!!!!!! I thought the sequence with Sookie at the beginning was weird & I had already watched the preview of it, so starting off with something I'd already seen was a little disappointing. Once she left the fairy realm I thought things would be back to normal. Well, they definitely weren't. With Sookie being gone for a year, it felt like we were all gone and completely out of touch with these characters. And to me, one of the best things about this show, is the connection you feel to most of them!
I will admit, the last 15 or so minutes of the show really brought things back around for me. And the upcoming previews definitely reeled me in to watch more. And while it was great that they were showing episode 2 on HBO GO, everyone must have gone there because my app just kept crashing!
So, what do you think of True Blood Season 4 so far? Did it meet your expectations? I'm really excited to see what happens between Sookie & Eric this season! How great was that, that he kept her house because he knew she'd be back?! He even said, "Sookie, you are mine." I love it!
