Season 10 Episode 1 Premiere I became disillusioned by during the third
season. The vampire parts of the show were great, as is expected, but the
writers kept putting in more, trying to fill in time with the multitude of
other characters who are nowhere near as exciting as vampires. The result was
as show which fluctuated from one minute to the next, from vampires doing
awesome things to characters I don't care about doing usual soap-y things.
Whether the writers planned this to reduce the load for the stars or genuinely thought
the other characters should have equal standing with Sookie and the vampires, a
lot of the previous season didn't click for me.
That's why I'm hesitant to say too much going things about
the season premiere, "She's Not There," which I did enjoy NCIS Season 10
Episode 1 Premiere Like the previous season premieres, it's a cool episode
because it shifts the show in a substantial way. Characters are in new
situations and roles, and there are new enemies and supernatural stuff. With
all this new stuff going on set in the mystical world of , it's hard not to get
excited. That said, do the writers have enough material to carry the excitement
for an entire season? Their track record says no, but maybe they have something
new this time around. Just maybe.
And if the format stays the same, oscillating between the
relatively boring residents of Bon Temps and the vampires, I guess that would
be okay. The first 15 minutes are probably the tripiest minutes of the show
since Maryann's first orgy. Sookie is NCIS Season 10 Episode 1
Premiere surrounded by fairies in their glowing splendor, and even finds the
bellboy from last season and her granddad. But the illusion is popped, fairies
turned into wrinkled hags who want to close the divide to the human world.
Sookie returns to the human world where she finds her home being sold and her
brother who informs her that she's been gone for a year!
In that year, a lot has changed. The vampires are making
outreach to the community, and of course everyone was consumed with finding
Sookie, who they presumed to be killed by Bill. There actually isn't too much
in the episode, but by the end of the episode, there are some startling new
developments. Bill is apparently king of Louisiana
now, he's infiltrated the witch group Lafayette and Jesus are in, NCIS Season 10 Episode 1
Premiere and sleeping with the lawyer Portia whose last name indicates a
relation to Andy and Terry.
One of the most surprising parts of the episode was that
Lafayette and Jesus are doing something interesting. The witches can actually
do things and the leader even makes contact with Eddie, the vampire from the
first season, and it makes for a good shock. But it's outdone by the final
ceremony--which has the gravitas Supernatural Latin stuff never has--the group
holding hands and momentarily possessing a bird. Out of all the non-vampire
plots, this plot was the only NCIS Season 10 Episode 1
Premiere one which got a big reaction out of me, so hopefully it pays off in
Now on to the stuff I didn't really like or don't care
about. Andy is addicted to V and is out of control, something we've seen time
and time again, and has little potential. Tara is off in New Orleans doing MMA
hooking up with girls, and trying to create a new identity--probably better
than her plot last season and Andy's this season, but I want to see more first.
Sam is part of some shape shifter anger management group, which is NCIS Season 10 Episode 1
Premiere almost an afterthought. Jason is still trying to help the people at
Hotshot, but they toss him in the refrigerator. While Jessica remains as cute
as ever, her problems this season, fighting the urge to drink others' blood, is
pretty much the same as her problems last season, the only difference being
that she's living with Hoyt now. Arlene's baby apparently rips heads off
dolls... but who cares other than Arlene?
All in all, "She's Not There" made for an
excellent season premiere. Even if the other characters still don't interest
me, I still think the episode had enough good parts to make up for it. My
philosophy with is that it is watchable until the vampires are no longer
interesting. NCIS Season
10 Episode 1 Premiere Each minute
wasted on a boring plot about some random person is actually a minute closer to
something good. Optimistic, yes, but that's how I get through each episode.
Yay!! Those hippy, trippy fairies were frauds. I think many
(even before HBO premiered the first eight minutes of Episode 1) knew this to
be true. However, as this show sometimes has a tendency to drag out stories
past their expiration date (*cough* Season 2 Maenad story *cough*), I am
THRILLED that they dropped this *** so quickly into the season. I think what
made me especially happy about this is that TB Sookie, who over the past three
seasons has shown NCIS
Season 10 Episode 1 Premiere difficulty putting two and two together,
worked it out ON HER OWN that something was amiss in the Land of the ***.
Yes, an orc wandering around a garden party for People Magazine’s 50 Most
Beautiful People, should throw up red flags for anyone whose brain cells number
in the triple digits. However, the fact that Sookie seemed to be the only one
aware of this (I’m sure because she didn’t ingest those glowing pears …
because, really, glowing apples would be TOO obvious) made me happy. Yes,
Sookie’s suspicions were raised the moment she microwaved on into Faeryland.
She was having NONE of that fruit. Perhaps she hadn’t forgotten her Sunday
school lesson of: when in a garden paradise, do not eat the fruit you are
offered. NCIS Season 10
Episode 1 Premiere At any rate, she finally seems to be using her brain and
this makes me so happy.
Oh, Book Sookie. I can sort of, kind of see you … and it is
nice Giving Credit Where Credit is DuIt is rare that the opening credits are mentioned in reviews
but I have to mention them because they made me cheer. Anyone who has spent
time in this fandom knows that the credit order has been a source of much
debate. Alexander Skarsgard’s name not being NCIS Season 10 Episode 1
Premiere listed up among the core cast has led some to argue that Eric’s arc on
would never take a similar path as his arc in the books. For what it is worth,
I never bought this argument. To me it is like saying Heather Locklear was
really only a guest star all those years on Melrose Place because that is how
she was listed in the credits. However, though I never bought this argument, I
grew tired of listening to some use it. Thus, I was very happy to see the
Season 4 credits roll, and to see Mr. Skarsgard’s name up with the core cast.
Vampire Showdown at Sundown NCIS Season 10 Episode 1
Premiere On Sookie’s first night back
from Faeryland, Eric and Bill show that they both have difficulty understanding
“Don’t ever talk to me” and “Get out of my life”. As soon as the sun sets, they
both vamp it on over to Sookie’s (or technically Eric’s) as quickly as
possible. Unfortunately for us, since Bill is still undead across from the
cemetery, this means that Bill arrives first.
Bill behaves like a royal jackass and promptly tries to
generate sympathy for himself by talking about how difficult the year has been
FOR HIM. NCIS Season 10 Episode 1 Premiere Considering the fact that Sookie has
experienced the death of another beloved family member just hours before, she
is not having the best of times either.
