True Tween

I no longer watch True Blood, but I do watch the trailers and the episode summaries. That's bad enough.

But I notice a weird commonality between TB and the tweener hit series, Twilight. Both of them star a girl who is the object of the insane passion of two competing males.

Female vanity. It explains a great deal of our post-feminist culture. Galaxies of unreality designed to make girls feel better about themselves.

And, of course, given my orientational diversity (!), I fail to see the attraction. Bella always was a dud. Sookie had some spark but now she is what the Blacks and Gays call "a hot mess."

As usual, I think Jacob and Edward, and Eric and Bill would make better couplings, sans the girls

Actually, Jacob and Eric...or Jacob and Alcide...or Alcide and Jason.

Go back to sleep, ExC.

From what I heard, Jason ends up in prison and starts a whirlwind relationship with a vampire named Violet- a Polish chick from the Middle Ages who considers herself Catholic, but "bad-ass, medieval times Catholic," not the "modern world bullshit" of modern Catholicism. She also believes that romantic unions, like those between her and Jason, are sacred.

Sounds a little familiar, eh Ex? ;)

BTW, Jason has some nice chemistry with the new villain Ben, and even has an erotic dream in which he is shaving naked with Ben. Pretty diverting. I don't know how much chemistry Jason and Alcide have in the show. I like my romantic pairings to have chemistry, it enhances the eroticism.
