True Blood Season 5: Russell Edgington's Back!

For those unaware, the 5th season of HBO's True Blood starts Sunday, June 10th! *shrieks with excitement*  As many know, True Blood series doesn't necessarily follow the bestselling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.  It does somewhat, but the storylines tend to ride askew, and the characters also vary.

For example, in the book Russell Edgington's character was somewhat nefarious, but no where near as wicked as the one in the True Blood show.  In fact, one of the most coveted characters on the hit cable series is Russell Edgington. In season 3, we watched Russell buried alive in cement. So much happened during that season with vamp politics, eternal vendetta's and betrayed lovers that is was all too delicious. That said, one of my favorite scenes was when Russell went cuckoo and appeared on national television. If you haven't had a chance to review this, take a peak! Warning: It's graphic so viewer beware!




Aside from "And now it's time for the weather...Tiffany?"--my other favorite line in this scene from Russell is "We want to eat you...right after we eat your children." Oooh, I can't wait for that freakenstein vamp to glorify True Blood in Season 5. With Russell, you know it will be fun, sick and without a doubt outrageous.

Have you seen this clip? Do you like Russell? Have you watched the series?

I started watching the series, but I haven't been able to get into it. I'll have to give it another try.

Yay True Blood season five. Yeah. I watched that episode Russell glided in and did his worst. I remember watching it, distracted then did a double take whenhe appeared fangs barred and swooping in for the poor woman's throat. Woohoo he is going to fire up the scenes. :)

I've read all the Sookie books, but I've never seen the show! Tragic. I need to get on that. It looks SO FUN. ;)

That scene was classic. I only saw half of season 4 because we had canceled HBO for a time. I need to catch up!

I love love LOVE Russell. He's so delightfully evil. And I cannot WAIT for True Blood to come back. It's one of those shows I thought I would hate, but now I'm totally addicted.
