Did you know the first 100 words of this column are the last 100 words I write every week? I say this for two reasons: 1) If you’ve ever noticed the coherency of this column increases as you work your way through it, you now know why. 2) You now also have an incentive to click to the second page of this column. (Yes! I’m paginated now! << I don’t know if that statement is the “Spoiler Room” speaking or yours truly. I’m going to say it’s the “room” since I, in fact, am not paginated.)
At any rate, take note of the little number “2″ because it’s your path 2 more scoop. (See what I did there.) Hey, I warned you just one paragraph ago…
Remember to send scoop requests to email@example.com (note to the two smooshed “r”s) and follow me on Twitter for more things that don’t make a lot of sense and a few things that do (like TV scoop!). @EWSandraG READ FULL STORY »
They did it outside. They did it inside. They did it in different rooms. They did it in different positions. Yes, after all that anticipation, Sookie and Eric finally hooked up on True Blood. Was it worth the wait? True Blood aficionado and “supernatural sexpert” Mandi Bierly weighs in with her thoughts as we break down the current season. Which side are we rooting for in the witches vs. vampires war? What storylines haven’t been working this season? And why is Sam’s brother Tommy such a colossal bummer? We discuss and debate all the twists and turns in Bon Temps and even offer some teases as to what to expect in the next few episodes. READ FULL STORY »
Alexander Skarsgard lovers, your prayers have been answered: HBO has picked up a fifth season of True Blood.
The pay cabler has ordered 12 more episodes of the drama from Alan Ball that’s based on Charlaine Harris’ mega-popular Sookie Stackhouse novels. The fifth season will bow next summer.
“I remain amazed and delighted by the enthusiasm of our viewers,” said Ball in a statement. “I can’t imagine having more fun than this.” READ FULL STORY »
True Blood just took another step toward a fifth season renewal.
Alan Ball just told critics at TCA press tour that he’s staying with the show since his deal has been renewed. The showrunner shot down concerns he might leave HBO vampire hit at the end of the season. “No,” he said when asked if he’s leaving, explaining that he’s having a great time on the series.
Not that Blood returning (or a showrunner wanting to stay on a hit series, for that matter), is much of a surprise, but it’s certainly good to hear, especially in the wake of Frank Darabont’s surprise exit from The Walking Dead.

'True Blood': Aaron Perilo, one of the new sheriffs in town, talks character's 'Fight Club' connection
On this week’s True Blood, we met the other four vampire sheriffs of Louisiana when King Bill summoned them to discuss their witch problem. One of the vampires, Blackburn (pictured), is played by Aaron Perilo, who celebrated his debut by watching the show with friends — a circle of dedicated True Blood fans. (They hushed the fool who “Ooh!”ed when he made his first appearance, he reports. There is no talking during True Blood.) Though Perilo is under the usual cast orders to stay spoiler-free, here’s what we gleaned from our chat this morning:
• Blackburn has been an acquaintance of Bill and Eric’s for “a very long time,” and he’s friends with Eric (at least the one who’d remember him). He doesn’t have a job in the human world, and “he doesn’t really care too much about the human race,” Perilo says. READ FULL STORY »
