well THAT was a goddamn clusterfuck

So I just finished watching True Blood S4 and I'm actually KIND OF MAD, lol. Idek you guys, I was pretty fucking pissed about Jesus kicking it, but at least I saw that coming from a mile away, and I could have gotten past it. (And the results of that may be... uh, interesting, to boot.) But TARA. WHAT THE FUCK. THAT WAS SO FUCKING RANDOM. WHY WOULD YOU EVEN FUCKING DO THAT. IT DOESN'T EVEN MAKE ANY SENSE. GODDAMN.

Fuck you, True Blood writers. No srsly, fuck you. I've mostly been merely hilaritized by all your shock-factor camp writing, which is the reason I've watched the show to this point, but you've taken this shit too far. This was just completely random and pointless. Fuck.

(And I notice the characters you just killed off were two of the only three major poc AND queer characters on the cast, not to mention taking away the two most important ppl in the world to the remaining poc queer dude. Have you even killed off any other major non-villain characters? Oh, I mean, besides Tara's boyfriend from a previous season, who was GUESS WHAT ALSO A POC. Don't think I don't see what you did there.)

Idek if I want to watch the next season. I'm curious as to what happens to Lafayette, but lord knows they're just going to make him as miserable as possible, so I'm not sure there's any point.

Wow, that bad? I'm glad I stopped partway through s3 and just stuck with the books.

I've never read the books b/c I preferred the characters of the show - frex, Lafayette's my favorite and he's only a one-book murder victim in the books, and the awful shit I have heard about book!Bill... Well, I don't like TV!Bill much but at least he's not THAT unpalatable. And quite honestly I have enjoyed this ridiculous shock-factor camp they've got going on, but they've gradually been taking it farther and farther and TARA AND LAFAYETTE ALWAYS GET THE WORST OF IT, WHY. I mean damn.

Yeah, Lafayette was one of the reasons I kept watching. They took virtually nothing and made him into one of the more likeable characters.

The show and the books kept getting farther and farther apart, and I just eventually couldn't take the over-the-top let's-make-everything-trashy-and-totally-torture-them-all that the show fell into.

I don't think book!Bill is that bad. He made some mistakes and hid some things, but seems like a decent guy...er, vampire overall. TV!Tara is SO different than book!Tara. Like they're two completely different people who happen to share a name and a friend.
