There is no hockey. I have no life. I’ve spent my time catching up on tv shows I missed. Or just revisiting them in general. I whipped through season two of Mad Men the other day. A few weeks ago it was a Burn Notice marathon. Because I am an ONTD obsessive, and they tend to know what’s good, I had to know what was up with True Blood. I thought it was in the vein of Twilight. I stayed up a few nights watching season one and catching up on season two and OMFGGGGGG ITS SO GOOD. And its amazing and wonderful and best of all the vampires don’t effing sparkle. It almost fills the void that Buffy left when it was over… So here is your Thursday Slice of Cheesecake, one of the babes of True Blood.
This is Alexander Skarsgard. He is Swedish. Also, he is 6’4″. I KNOWWWWW RIGHT?! He plays the badass Eric Northman on True Blood, the thousand year old Viking vampire whose dying words were “Wherever I am, there will always be women.” Come on, that is amazing right? His character on True Blood is hilarious in his own stoic way. He owns a vampire nightclub called Fangtasia. Oh and why his hair gets shorter on the show was fantastic. I’m not going to ruin how it happened.
The thing I like most about the show is it really shows vampires in a modern setting. In Buffy there was always a disconnect. But with the premise of True Blood, vamps fighting for their equal rights in the world (well some…) they are integrating into society. They have BMWs, play Wii golf and get pissy when they aren’t texted back. They fly special airlines and stay in vampire hotels. The product True Blood is a synthetic blood substitute that is ordered like beer, and it’s heated up in a microwave. There are humans who are called fangbangers that seek out vampires to bite them. It all just endlessly amuses me. Askars makes out with Lady Gaga in her amazing video for Paparazzi;
This is from some Swedish movie he did, but like that matters?
