TV Review: TRUE BLOOD – Season 5 – “Whatever I Am, You Made Me”

Rutina Wesley in TRUE BLOOD - Season 5 - "Whatever I Am, You Made Me" | ©2012 HBO/John P. Johnson

Just in case we weren’t aware of the keen contributions normally made to TRUE BLOOD by Rutina Wesley’s blunt-spoken Tara and Kristin Bauer van Straten’s brilliantly acerbic Pam, the episode “Whatever I Am, You Made Me” drives the point home by muffling both characters. Make no mistake, Tara and Pam are both front and center here, it’s just that they’re both in dead serious mode. Newly-vamped Tara, having fled from her cousin Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) and Sookie (Anna Paquin), almost kills a helpless woman changing a tire. Tara gets some self-control and takes shelter with old boss/boyfriend/shapeshifter Sam (Sam Trammell). […]Read On »

Lara Pulver is no stranger to genre television viewers. Her roles on BBC America’s ROBIN HOOD, MI-5, and HBO’s TRUE BLOOD have made her a familiar face. Of course fans of TRUE BLOOD that have read the original Charlaine Harris books were more than a little dismayed that Pulver’s character Claudine Crane the fairy was brutally killed by Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) last season. However, while she was promoting a new season of PBS’ SHERLOCK she said she might be able to come back to TRUE BLOOD in the new year. “It wouldn’t surprise me if she appears as some […]Read On »

Topher Grace plays Ben Geary, an FBI agent who partners with Paul. Among the people they talk to is Stephen Moyer’s Brutus, an imprisoned KGB assassin who reveres the man the other two are seeking. Moyer, who speaks with his native English accent when not playing characters who hail from elsewhere, speaks with great affection about his best-known character, TRUE BLOOD’s gentlemanly Louisiana vampire Bill Compton.

But what if an action may have catastrophic, irrevocable consequences? How to take responsibility for this without wrecking the lives of everyone in sight? This is a tough issue even for adults – for high school student Lisa Cohen (Anna Paquin), it’s practically unbearable. In MARGARET, the trouble starts when Lisa, a Manhattan dweller, […]Read On »
