  • The episode finally provided a relatively fast-paced viewing experience
  • Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about the overly long scene featuring Jason and Crystal, not to mention Lafayette’s overdrawn courtship with Jesus
  • I enjoyed Queen Sophie’s reappearance quite a lot – she tends to bring the amusing kind of crazy into the show – and it was good to see Eric employing his charms
  • Moreover, I was definitely quite happy to watch Jessica’s subplot, which was fast-paced and didn’t take up too much time
  • The big budget and creators’ attention to detail show in the best possible way, whether we consider the meticulously chosen clothing of the characters, the interior décor or the naturalistic blood and gore

      After a slumping first half of its season, HBO’s True Blood is finally gaining momentum in its 3.6 episode “I Got a Right to Sing the Blues”. With Bill Compton revealed as disloyal and Eric Northman entering the house of King Russell under false pretences, seemingly in order to exact revenge for his long-dead mother, finally almost all subplots begin to make sense.

      The episode finally provided a relatively fast-paced viewing experience. During


      its course, Bill was almost killed twice, Tara managed to massacre the creepy Franklin, there was quite a lot of male nudity – not to mention innuendo – and the scenes centred around King’s relationship with his royal consort, Talbot, were in fact quite hilarious, even if slightly offensive. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about the overly long scene featuring Jason and Crystal, not to mention Lafayette’s overdrawn courtship with Jesus. If that was the kind of thing I was looking for, I would be watching Queer as Folk (although, admittedly, on Queer as Folk the chances of a non-white couple like this would have been slim).

      quite happy to watch Jessica’s subplot, which was fast-paced and didn’t take up too much time. The best scene, however, was quite likely the discussion Sookie had with Russell: even though in itself the scene provided little information about either Sookie’s or vampires’ natures, it definitely promised further insight to come, and I always enjoy such revelations. With the episode ending on a cliffhanger I’m actually curious about – how can Sookie
      and Tara make it out of the mansion without getting Bill and themselves killed is quite a conundrum – I’ll be sure to tune in for the next episode.

      Finally, as usual, the show must be praised for excellent soundtrack, cinematography and acting. The big budget and creators’ attention to detail show in the best possible way, whether we consider the meticulously chosen clothing of the characters, the interior décor or the naturalistic blood and gore.
