“True Blood” is back and better than ever!

This show is truly bloody good fun!

After a lackluster second season (in my opinion, anyway), the HBO series has *vamped* things up considerably. I’m loving the dynamic duo team of Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) and Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer), and the increased sexual tension between Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) is nothing short of A-W-E-S-O-M-E. (Can’t wait for the show to delve further into the novels’ plotlines in that regard!)

“True Blood”: Are fans of the show reading the books?

Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello interviewed the “True Blood” cast at Comic-Con last week – including the intriguingly delicious threesome of Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgard. (That’s Sookie, Bill and Eric to you and me.)

While obviously they can’t reveal the direction in which their storylines are heading this season, I thought it was interesting that Eric – oops, I mean Alexander – questioned what fun it would be if the show simply followed the Charlaine Harris books verbatim.

And I absolutely was shocked when Bill (aka Stephen) pointed out that the books’ fans will only ever comprise about 5 percent of the “True Blood” viewership. Which made me wonder… why don’t all fans of the show read the books? That’s exactly how I got into the show: I watched the first season and loved it so much I had to know what was going to happen next! And for those of you who haven’t read the books, I strongly encourage you to do so… because you won’t believe what’s going to happen!

You can watch additional interviews with Michelle Forbes (Maryann) and Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica), creator Alan Ball, and Sam Trammell (Sam), Rutina Wesley (Tara) and Nelsan Ellis (Lafayette) right here.

“True Blood’s” Alexander Skarsgard takes a bite out of “Paparazzi”

This is probably the oddest pairing I’ve seen in a while: “True Blood’s” hotter-than-hot Alexander Skarsgard (that’s Eric the vamp) starring in Lady Gaga’s latest video, “Paparazzi.”

Oh, and did you see who else was in the vid? The triplets – ’84, ’85 and ’86 – from “Daisy of Love.” Good grief.
