"True Blood" is back, and Season 6 picks up right where Season 5 left off. We’re watching bloody Billith rise, but this time from his red-tinged perspective. I’ll be honest — I’m approaching Season 6 a little nervously. What will a...

Morgan Lane Arnold, an emotionally frail 14-year-old freshman, navigated the hallways of her Howard County high school each day filled with anxiety, unable because of a learning disorder to decipher the social cues, jokes and emotions of her peers.

"Took you long enough." -- Russell Edgington
So they finally found Russell. Because no one thinks to search in the creepy asylum for a vampire seeking to be reborn.
Seriously, the asylum was like a low-rent haunted house run by high schools students....

Leave it to Russell Edgington to liven things up.
Captured by Eric and Bill (finally) at the Asylum of High School Student Horror House and brought back to the Authority, Russell seemed done for. He's outfitted with one of those helpful iStakes...

I'm pretty sure "True Blood" just went over the deep end.
Here's a quick summary of what went down tonight:
A hate group recruiting Hoyt, who suddenly is a really, really bad person.
The smoke monster chuckling.
Pam sporting crimped hair.

DJ KayJay was always interested in DJing, even before the rise of party-starters such as Calvin Harris and Deadmau5, whose songs have overtaken the club scene.
The Baltimore-based DJ, otherwise known as Kristin Jackson, likes to please the crowd with...

What do vampires do after massacring a wedding reception? Plan for world domination, of course.
After last week's monstrously ridiculous episode, this week was a bit more sedate. For "True Blood" that means a graphic sex scene, double Sams (seriously)...

Exhibit 23 of how ridiculous most of this episode was: Sookie actually says, "I'll be fine once I wash the pig out of my hair."
The season has tried my patience. It's not horrible, it's not great. Some moments are pretty great in a very campy way (I...

Sometimes, less is more. Tonight's episode clocked in at a brisk 50 minutes -- and it was one of the best episodes of the season. Even with the laughable introduction of a mysterious scroll. Dun-dun-dun!
With just two more episodes to go, this episode...

Lilith is one tricky chick.
As if Bill isn't full of himself enough, she appears to him (naked and bloody, of course) a few times, tells him he's the chosen one to lead and to drink her. All of her.
But she does the same thing to another Authority...

Just how many subplots swirled about in tonight's season premiere? I think I lost count at 32.
While it's always good to meet new characters (like Vampire Authority rep Nora, who gives off a distinct Rachel Weisz vibe) and see others get extended time...
