I started off my day watching What Maisie Knew. I had read the book awhile back when I first heard Alexander Skarsgard was going to be in it. It is a book from the late 1800s. I was disappointed in the film. The story-telling was poor and the translation truly got lost. The book focused on the bond between Alex’s character and Maisie as she grew up. Alex’s performance was the only good thing in the film; although he didn’t have much to work with. I later watched the season finale of True Blood and like a majority of fans, was disappointed in the story lines that wrapped it up and the drop off of built-up story lines that ended up fizzing in the end. Alex is too valuable in the series and Eric Northman cannot be phased out. He is surrounded by mountains of snow. He can submerge himself until nightfall and then fly away. It was bad enough that the season ended with less episodes than normal but couldn’t the writers have put fourth a bit more effort in wrapping the season up in a more meaningful way? Build up Warlow at the end of last season and the majority of this one just to have him mess up Sookie’s bathroom? Really. The Willow story line started out with promise and then fell short in the end. True Blood needs fresh blood, better writers.
