Ain't It Cool News (

Herc’s Seen Anna Paquin Get Highly Naked In Sunday's First TRUE BLOOD Since November!!

I am – Hercules!!

True Blood 2.1 FAQ What’s it called? “Nothing But The Blood.” Who’s responsible? Teleplay is credited to “Sleeper Cell” vet Alexander Woo, who also wrote “True Blood’s” season-one finale. What says HBO? “Season Two Premiere. A shocking murder outside Merlotte's has Bon Temps reeling. Meanwhile, Sookie's relationship with Bill is tested when she learns of his siring of Jessica, and of his involvement in her uncle's death. Sam recalls a shape-shifting encounter he had with Maryann as a 17-year-old. Jason gets a sudden windfall that allows him to pay for a leadership retreat with the Fellowship of the Sun. Two adversaries find themselves sharing a mysterious dungeon and, possibly, the same fate.” Was that gay cook Lafayette the murderee outside Merlotte’s? He was not. The murderee’s true identity is revealed in spoiler-cloaking invisotext. It’s the exorcist who purged Tara’s mom of her demons. Is Bill one of the adversaries sharing the mysterious dungeon? No. What else is HBO not telling us? Sookie’s pal Tara wants to keep her connection to the deceased secret. The big news? Anna Paquin gets far more naked in this episode than in any prior installment. What’s good? The dungeon. Freshly minted vampire Jessica’s primer on Bill’s lifestyle. Michelle Forbes, still dishy nearly two decades after first essaying Ro Laren. The well-lit Paquin nakedness. The fact that season two's first four episodes left me craving more. What’s not so good? Bon Temps keeps reminding me of Sunnydale, and how much more fun Sunnydale was; “Buffy’s” plotting and dialogue were sharper and more graceful. And “True Blood” still isn’t as enjoyable as "American Beauty" or “Six Feet Under,” which begs the question: Why isn’t Alan Ball writing these episodes? How does it end, spoiler-boy? “Die, you dead fucker!!” 9 p.m. Sunday. HBO.

    The gay guys and women at work love this show...

    by TheGhostWhoLurks

    What is it, like Sex in the City, with fangs? Because the only other person I know who watches is forced by his girlfriend.

    because of that somehow this makes me feel dirty.

    by Yeti

    Interview with the Vampire, having the eye teeth (?) as the primary vampire fangs is nothing new. Annnnnnnyway - really looking forward to S2 and am glad they're only using the books as a template, not a scene for scene carbon copy.

  • June 14, 2009, 4:37 a.m. CST

    I couldn't care if the fangs

    by palpatinefuckedmydog

    came out of their asses. It's better than watching that cheerleader vampire show with that dick nose midget.

  • June 14, 2009, 4:41 a.m. CST

    Yeah, Yeti...

    by ErnestBorgNine

    and it bugs me every time. I know, I know, vampires aren't even real, but it's just a silly movie thing. Like when someone goes over to their parents house and they ring the door bell and wait for their own fucking parents to open the door. Or when someone tells a bunch of archers to Fire!

    S1 NO Tara nudity. S2 she needs to become a hot and heavy Lesbian to make up for no nudity in S1.

    "it's just a silly movie thing.

    with zero sex appeal. also lol at this show having vinny from home and away in it

    Alan Ball didn't write a lot of Six Feet Under

    by I am_NOTREAL

    If memory serves...but I've been looking forward to this. Yeah, sometimes the show is a little sloppy, a little lazy - but I still enjoy the hell out of it. Good adult fun.

    is the best kind of nakedness.

    Anna Paquin is getting naked?

    by Gabba-UK

    On a weekly basis? When the fuck did this start happening? And why hasn't it appeared on British tv yet?

  • June 14, 2009, 7:46 a.m. CST


    by Type 40

    From Home & Away? Last I "saw" of him, he was dressed as a bear on the witness protection programme! I think he left to be in Star Wars, if memory serves.

    Anna Paquin is cute,

    by Amy Chasing

    but her acting is a little one-note for me. Not as bad as Natalie Portman, but she's no Rose Byrne.

  • June 14, 2009, 8 a.m. CST


    by Cotton McKnight

    In my opinion, that's the only purpose for these dumb shows. Weeds, True Blood, etc. I just want to see the female lead get naked. And eventually, my wish is fufilled.

  • June 14, 2009, 8:08 a.m. CST


    by photoboy

    That's all I need to know about to decide if it's worth watching.

  • June 14, 2009, 8:16 a.m. CST

    Anna Paquin was alright in the first X-Men

    by performingmonkey

    Since then she's done nothing for me.

  • June 14, 2009, 8:25 a.m. CST

    I don't mind the position other fangs as much as...

    by Chewtoy

    I'm more bothered by the extraordinarily cheap way the vampire fangs pop out on this show... They look like spring-loaded sharpened Chicklets. They even make a "click" like a switchblade when they pop... Really goofy, in my opinion.

    by DanielKurland

  • June 14, 2009, 8:47 a.m. CST

    Still blows my mind that Ball's episodes are....

    by DanielKurland

    easily the worst. Adore SFU, American Beauty, and Towelhead, but, this series improved DRASTICALLY by the second half of the season. Nothing against Ball, and I love this show now, but I just found it ironic that someone as accomplished as Ball wrote the least effective episodes in my opinion. And didn't Stephen Root do an incredible job last year?

  • June 14, 2009, 8:49 a.m. CST

    Biggest Buffy Fan ever.... but....

    by YouIgnorantGeeks

    And sorry... how is Bon Temps like Sunnydale?!?!!?!? So is every show with vampires going to be compared to Buffy? I LOVE Buffy, best show of all time in my opinion, followed by Angel... But I also love True Blood... probably best show on TV now, save for maybe, MAYBE, Lost. I mean "not as fun as sunnydale" WTF?!?!?! ITS A DIFFERENT TYPE OF SHOW!!!! Get the stick out of your ass. And for those who think its a girls show... um... no... this show is getting praise ALL OVER THE PLACE... men, women, doesn't matter. Thats why its considered such a runaway success. EVERYONE loves it. Those who say stuff like "my girlfriend forces me to watch it" are probably just extremely insecure closet homosexuals who don't realize there is nothing feminine about the show. Now if they were watching Vampire Diaries...

  • June 14, 2009, 8:50 a.m. CST

    And I love Paquin, but...

    by DanielKurland

    there is no way that anyone can say that she deserved the Emmy over January Jones last year for Betty Draper. It was Betty Draper's year!

  • June 14, 2009, 8:50 a.m. CST

    Anna Paquin isn't swimsuit model good looking

    by ZoeFan

    But that doesn't mean there isn't something really attractive about her.

  • June 14, 2009, 8:56 a.m. CST

    Anna Paquin

    by Canuck815

    She just won the Golden Globe, the Emmy is still technically hers to lose. This show is pretty addicting, and I'm really glad to hear the deceased wasn't who was expected. Anna Paquin in those short shorts? I've missed it.

  • June 14, 2009, 9:03 a.m. CST

    Canuck, wow, you're right...

    by DanielKurland

    I was positive it was the Emmy.

  • June 14, 2009, 9:23 a.m. CST

    I always get Anna Paquin and Thora Birch


    mixed up. Both cute and both have that girl next door look. Bring on the nakedness!

    Re: Richard Gere Raped My Gerbil

    by maelstrom_ZERO

    <p>I believe--and someone correct me if I'm wrong--that the correct term for the firing of arrows is "loose." And I got that from watching the commentary of Lord of the Rings, of all places.</p> <p>I recently finished watching TB within for the first time within a span of a few days, and I have to say, it's pretty enjoyable. It certainly isn't as well-done as Supernatural, or the dialogue as well-scripted as 1st season of BSG, but the characters are very well fleshed out and seem kind of realistic. TB is good stuff.</p>

    Thank God for FX, SHO, and AMC.

  • June 14, 2009, 10:15 a.m. CST


    by Hint_of_Smegma

    Buffy the fricking Vampire Slayer was funnier and better written? On what fucking planet was this? Buffy was a joke, I will never, never understand why so many people stick up for it. It had some - SOME - good ideas, but it was badly acted, the writing was too fond of throwing in wink wink nudge nudge moments and Whedon was obviously so far up himself when he was writing it he had to open his mouth in order to see the word processor. True Blood beats it in ever single department - casting, acting, writing, ideas, humour. Plus, naked chicks and no David "Craptastic" Boreanz. Put Charisma Carpenter in it as a mute who has to get naked a lot and it will quite possibly be the greatest show ever. That is all.

  • June 14, 2009, 10:19 a.m. CST

    Watched all of Season One in a row on ondemand

    by Boblobla

    And I have to say, if I had to wait in weekly installments, I might not have enjoyed the show as much. When the show has it's big "holy shit" moments, they're awesome, like when we finally see a staking, or how Bill became a vampire. The reveal of the killer's identity at the end of season one was, I thought a bit of a cop out as they went with someone that wouldn't really effect things too much. I was surprised by how sad I was when Jason's hippie vegan girlfriend bought it. But any show that has EB Farnum and Frank Sabotka on it is going to keep me watching for that. Well, that and Anna Paquin being naked. YOWZA.

  • June 14, 2009, 10:28 a.m. CST

    Having now wikied True Blood...

    by Gabba-UK

    Read what people have said, awards, reviews, the fact that the guy that did American Beauty and Six Feet Under is involved, Paquin puppies getting an airing not withstanding, why isn't this on British TV yet?

  • June 14, 2009, 10:28 a.m. CST

    i'm pouring a 40 ...

    by Toe Jam

    for lizzy caplan nudity. hands down, the highlight(s) of season one. and the chance of her getting naked on season two of "party down" doesn't look too promising.

  • June 14, 2009, 10:39 a.m. CST

    Thanks maelstrom_ZERO


    Oh, and I've not seen this show yet but everything here is telling me that I should rectify that mistake.

  • June 14, 2009, 10:40 a.m. CST

    This show makes me happy

    by Auriellis

    Mostly because most shows based on books ignore the books entirely or just keep the elements that work. I like True Blood because it does follow the books and then does even better by expanding the universe to tell stories surrounding the other characters.

  • June 14, 2009, 10:49 a.m. CST

    How is naked chicks f*cking, gay?

    by WhoDis

    And I haven't seen the show yet besides the online nude and sex clips and photos (waiting to see Season 1 on DVD with my wife who's out of town at the moment), but in regards to the vampire teeth, they do look a bit silly in this, it's more like snake fangs. It took me forever to get used to the bumpy forehead thing with BUFFY and at least it's not extra long fangs like in John Carpenter's VAMPIRES where the fangs are so long it would be impossible to close your mouth. I prefer the INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE teeth myself. Subtle and more realistic. RIP Stan Winston.

    by neoufo51

  • June 14, 2009, 11:06 a.m. CST


    by Canuck815

    Herc, if possible, you should try out a weekly TB talkback (I can't remember if you had one for season 1). It'd be sweet to have a place to come to discuss the 'holy shit' moments.

    by cifra

    Paquin's tits! I still wonder why this site ain't talking about Paquin's, Damon's and Lonnergan's "Margaret" being delayed for years. Or diggin' any news about the other delayed and said-to-be great Paquin movie, "Trick or Treat". If you guys measure the quality of a series by the size of someone's tits...

    You know what was really awesome in season 1?...

    by DanielKurland

    In the finale when Bill is in the sun and is fucking burned to SHIT. And thankfully, the makeup works and doesn't ruin the moment.

    it's funny

    TRUE BLOOD Season 1 > BUFFY TVS Seasons 6 & 7

    by SpyGuy

    You know it, I know it. <p>And wasn't Anna Paquin naked at the end of Season 1? Is there a clause in her contract that she does at least one episode naked per season? Fine by me...</p>

  • June 14, 2009, 11:58 a.m. CST

    Paquin was naked in season one...

    by DanielKurland

    I though it was funny, because to a certain point, she was shot to get around nudity, and it seemed she must have obviously been uncomfortable or something, but then the nudity is almost gratuitous.

  • June 14, 2009, 11:59 a.m. CST


    by DanielKurland

    So I guess Eric sticks around probably...

  • June 14, 2009, noon CST

    by Biffs_Pleasure_Paradise

    Sorry she just isn't. Pretty ugly in my opinion. I think some of you just squirt your pants cause she was Rogue.

  • June 14, 2009, 12:17 p.m. CST


    by Bloo

    in the books at least he does, but from the sounds of the S2 opener they are taking a few liberties with the book, we'll see, quite a bit of liberties with S1 and the first book so, but the spirit of the book was still there

    Too squeamish???

    by Gabba-UK

    Ok, maybe were a bit too careful with having violence on TV but nudity? We get LOADS of that. Maybe why we have a much lower murder rate than the US but a much higher teenage pregnancy rate. I think I prefer it that way........ especially as the age of consent here is 16.

    Brits too squeamish?

    by Jarek

    Give me a fucking break. This is the same nation that put Apparitions, Being Human, Dead Set, Ideal, etc. on TV. Those that know anything about British TV know that they sport not only one of the most screwed up senses of humour around, but also don't hold back on the red stuff... at all. I think you have it backwards... which is typical ignorance.

  • June 14, 2009, 4:59 p.m. CST

    I get more of a Veronica Mars vibe from this show

    by jah_kingdom

    Especially, the 2nd part of season one. A previous talkbacker described the writing as ,"lazy," and I'd have to agree. Premise is good and the guy who plays Bill is perfect but the writing really is lackluster. The sex scenes are hot though.

    by filmstu2005

    Oh just admit it you fucks this is a pretty damn entertaining show. Bill is perfect. Ana paquin plays Sookie well, although Tara is a pretty scene-stealing actress. But who wouldnt want to see Ana paquin get bit by a vampire on her nipples? Okay, well not as creepy like that, but the whole graveyard sex thing, to those that know what i'm talking about? Instant hook into this show. Jaw-dropping, in fact, everyone in the room watching it with me were hooked from that point on, well way b4 that actually.

    Average looking chicks naked = attainable fantasy for us

    That is basically what it is. If it's someone on par with a genetic jackpot it's fantasy but we know we'll never get it. Paquin naked means, "there is some girl working at my mall's Cinnabon on par with her that I could probably tap if I told her I owned a car."

    Enough with stupid buffy!!

    by ulcer

    "Bon Temps keeps reminding me of Sunnydale" HOW? Sunnydale was a white middle class California suburb with soccer moms and station wagon, and the whole point of Buffy is that that the school is that the highs school is an alegory. How incredibly *stupid* do you have to be to see any kind of link between anything in True Blood and Buffy! You have an 8 year old-level understanding of tvs and film. Ho they both use the word "Vampires"! Well then!!

    .. although this show kind of dies you to like it, with Tara and and Sookie's brother being so annoying. Still, Ensign Ro's character. apparently changed a lot from the book, is very promising.<br><br> And yes, it's a drama, not a comedy aimed at teenage girls, like Buffy was.

    It's that gap toothed grin of hers that puts Paquin over the top. She's like a walking advertisement for that stereotype about gap toothed girls being nymphomaniacs. Hate all you want. You know she's hot. <br /><br />And she's also a great actress. Oscar as a child, Golden Globe as an adult. She's too quirky looking for the average MAXIM reader, but men who love real women know what we like when we see it. She's beautiful.

    i think if you are labeling this show as a "gay show" you probably just read some entertainment weekly article that compared the vampire right movement in the show to the real life gay rights movement. this show is obviously made with both sexes in mind and caters to both. the gay/vampire allegory that was played up in the early days of this show by the press (and alan balls own sexuality) isn't really present in the show at all or not in some blatant annoying way. the only gay character, Lafayette, is one of the best on the show, and on tv right now. I bet even Jack Bauer would suck his dick.

    dioxholster, it's a parable

    by YackBacker

    Vampires are the vilified minority of our society, much like how blacks, Asians, Hispanics and gays have been and are treated. It's a none-to-subtle allegory, but the fantasy aspect is meant to draw in the viewer with a hook- vampires. STAR TREK did the same thing, but used fu-manchu sporting aliens to represent the Soviet Union and other aliens to serve as symbols of other people among our own world. Besides, if you take TRUE BLOOD on face value alone, this take on vampires shows a more complex "villain." And that itself is more compelling than the slash and gore retreads that have dominated the horror genre.

    by Crow3711

    I mostly enjoy True Blood, and continue to watch it on DVR when i get time, but for a show as fucking ridiculously campy as this, it takes itself so seriously, its hilarious. Those love scenes (not the sex and nudity) the scene where she broke in front of Bill right before they went and got it on, was maybe the worst thing ive ever seen " you..bill compton!" I laughed out loud. I think its hilarious how many stupid college girls and frat boys act like this is the best show on tv jsut because they watch it, no other reason. No one questions what they watch anymore, its simply the best because they like it. As entertaining as true blood can be, its extremely fluffy and full of camp.

    Empires TF review was the worst, such inconsistencies

    by ganymede3010

    So far I've read 4 reviews on the revenge of the fallen. Each of them contradicting each other. The IGN review says that the Optimus/Megatron/Starscream/Blackouduel is the best of the movie. While the Empire review says the same battle was lame. Also, TFW2005 has a few reviews up. All of them contradicting each other. This tells me that this movie is going to deliver. Some will like some acts better then the other ones. But overall, the criticism has been the movie's length, and to much action? When I drop 16.25 per IMAX ticket, I want the most action and length for my buck.

  • June 15, 2009, 11:53 a.m. CST


    by CaptainAxis the mental midgets like Diox and Ash0k who see everything in political terms. I really feel sad for you. You can't even watch a show without applying your bullshit politics to it. Does EVERYTHING boil down to "liberal" and "conservative" for you guys? Are you that incapable of seeing viewpoints other than your own that you can't deal with shows like this? Fucking pathetic.

  • June 15, 2009, noon CST


    by CaptainAxis

    The anti-vampire people aren't all religious, either. The show works in grey areas, which is probably why feeble-minded pseudo-conservatives like you can't handle it. When Sookie reads minds of the people in the dinner, most of them are against vampires (or at least, the idea of humans mingling with vampires) for reasons other than religion. You do realize that you don't have to watch the show if you don't like it... right?

    So, this show awakened your secret gay longing didn't it? Be honest -- you get hard looking at the crucifix don't you? Jebus nearly naked in his bloody diaper? Cmon, admit it, you know you rubbed one out to him at least once. Or was that your priest who forced you too? PRAISE JEBUS!!!

    My only point was that the characters/creatures in "True Blood" don't seem terribly frightening or scary. For horror, I find "Supernatural" to be more engaging. Just my .02.

    sorry i was generalizing

    by martinlutherkrangjr

    when i said its not a gay show but that it appeals to both sexes, yes both sexes can be gay but since this board is just basically about tits i assumed all the gay bashing was directed towards gay men. i don't think the shows gay and if you think it is maybe its just because you are attracted to all the "hot dudes" on the show.

    by CaptainAxis

    What a brilliant observation. When was True Blood marketed as a horror show? If you don't "get" what they're doing with this show, stick with Supernatural.

    Really like this show

    by kuryakin

    I don't see how anyone can say it takes itself too seriously though, since it has so much bizarre comedy in it. Like how when Eric appears at the end, all big and scary but he's obviously been in the middle of getting his highlights done; or the scene where Bill starts talking about recycling There was also that bit last season where Rene's fiancee discovers the "How to speak Cajun " tape that was straight out of the Naked Gun or something, just completely silly and tongue in cheek But changing topic slightly, how the fuck is Skarsgaard not Thor? Look at the fucker, he's a big Viking bastard Have his dad play Odin, BADA BING that's half Branagh's job done right there

    Really? I watch lots of "grown up" shows like Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Damages, Rescue Me, LOST, and Dexter. Oh yeah, none of them are on HBO.

    by martinlutherkrangjr

    hbo makes some great shows still, but i think everyone else (except the networks) got wise to what they were doing and now you see lots of other shows on basic cable that are equal or superior to the quality of hbo's original programming. i am excited for a song of fire and ice on hbo if that ever happens and doesn't suck.

  • June 15, 2009, 6:35 p.m. CST


    by HoichiTheEarless

    Agreed... Paquin is quite luscious as a brunette. The showrunners of this thing need to come up with some kind of hair die plot line and get her naked again.

  • June 15, 2009, 7:27 p.m. CST

    Anna Paquin is PERFECT. Hey HBO...

    by 33.3rpm

    You give me naked Anna. I vow to watch every second of every episode this season. It's the least I can do. I love you. *kiss, kiss*

    You know what's gay? Buying the 12" Belloq doll from Sideshow

    by YackBacker

    Definitely more gay than watching Anna Paquin and Lizzy Caplan show their titties on this show. Get some perspective, you inbred mouthbreathers.

  • June 15, 2009, 9:22 p.m. CST

    Good-but-not-great start to the second season.

    by 3D-Man

    At times, the pacing seemed slower than molasses in the wind, although its obvious that a lot of story threads are being set up. And naked Anna Paquin at the end was just... wow.

    Alan Ball Overrated

    by tallsy

    I'm sorry but other than SFU, I don't know what people are seeing here. American Beauty was simultaneously condescending and cliche. Towelhead was just awful. This has to be the most overrated show on television.

  • June 15, 2009, 10:19 p.m. CST

    Heckles, you think Paquin looks like a "little girl"?

    by Tall_Boy66

    Uh, really? She has gigantic tits. Little girls don't have gigantic tits. I have no idea where you're comming from, buddy.

    Not nearly enough Skarsgard, waay too much Kwanten.

    by AnnoyYou

    Alexander Woo is just too in love with the utterly boring Jason Stackhouse/Ryan Kwanten. This episode gave way too much screen time to him, and he's clearly the least compelling character on the show. Bleah. However, although he was onscreen for only a few scenes, Eric/Skarsgard was worth the time invested in this otherwise lackluster premiere - I loved the foils in his hair (hee!) and the fact that he finally took out that moronic redneck. The only other pluses about this episode were Live!Lafayette and the back story on the totally scary Maryann (Michelle Forbes has ruled everything she's been on since her days as Ensign Ro on ST: the Next Generation). I hope next week there is MORE ERIC, which means it will automatically be better.

    Admittedly, I've only seen her on Damages, but she's fucking great on Damages.

    by Broseph

    Looks like HBO finally has a new Sopranos on their hands! The second season premiere of True Blood on Sunday night was the highest rated program for the premium cable network since the finale of The Sopranos. According to the Nielson ratings, 3.7 million viewers tuned in to True Blood on Sunday! Wow! The ratings are up 157% from the first season's premiere and up 51% than last season's finale. Sounds like HBO snagged a winner! Read'em and weep haters

    Entertaining Enough

    by _Maltheus_

    I don't know that I would say it's a quality show, it's pretty corny and they've got this whole liberal preachy thing going on, but I enjoy watching it well enough. It's a fun show that I put on the same level as Smallville (early show), Heroes (S1), Chuck or Reaper. Anna Paquin's hotness helps a lot in the watchability department. And I'm curious to see where the Ensign Ro plotline is going. However, I could do without the brother's plotline.

    Bon Temps, Louisiana

    by eonnoe

    I think the show is pretty entertaining. It can be corny at times and funny at others. The only thing that bugs me about the show is Bon Temps. With all the killing that goes on in that small town; why do they even go outside anymore? On a side note: True Blood starts Two years after vampires have "come out of the coffin". I wonder how the nation reacted when they made themselves known. Wouldnt there be anarchy in every city? I would picture the U.S. more like Night of the Living Dead than American Beauty if this ever happend.
