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.

Yeah, that one. I don't know why it pinged me as LOOK AT THE SILLY BLACK PEOPLE SINGING SONGS, but that's how it read to me. Perhaps because it looked so little like a recognizable church exorcism of any kind, and so much like "now they will sing a cheerful song and wave sage around! Aren't they funny?" >>;;

And you're right: we COULD only properly assess the damage at the end of the season. So perhaps this idea IS untenable, and we should come up with some other debauched method of tallying that's less likely to kill us.

It was some pretty random shit, yeah. (Also I was pretty confused by the sage.) I think they were trying to make it "ironic" or whatever by having Arlene burp out her usual unconsciously racist shit and have everyone stare uncomfortably, but yeah....... no. It didn't really work for me either.

Also if we drank during the show it might be less head-desk inducing.
