True Blood Comic-Con Panel 2010 + Exclusive Tra

I don't want to count the chickens before they hatch but this season feels like the best of the best! :w00t:

Anyway, they didn't say much during Comic-Con, spoiler wise. The most spoilery thing I think is that Alcide has been promoted to regular and will be part of the cast next season. :)

I will do a copy/paste of HBO True Blood's Official Twitter page (http://twitter.com/TrueBloodHBO) of what happened and was said:

- ON STAGE: Joe, Charlaine, Kristin, Deborah, Nelsan, Alan, Denis, Sam, Rutina, Anna, Stephen...and a cardboard cut-out of Alexander.

- Anna on Sookie saying "Sookeh." How does she do it? "I've just heard it a lot."

- STEPHEN on the "twisted" sex scene: "It's amazing the detail that goes into scene like that."

- RUTINA on Tara's penchant for loons: "She attracts people who love victims. When Tara gets intrigued, she gets insecure, runs away."

- DENIS on Russell's extensive backstory: "Alan gives us a starting point, then encourages us to fill things in. He has an ancient morality."

- Alan Ball loves Snoop Dogg's "Oh Sookie." He particularly loves "the Sookettes."

- NELSAN on Lafayette's new love: "It's good to see his softer side, where he's falling for somebody."

- KRISTIN on Eric's loyalty: Pam or Sookie? "I'm his progeny. Sookie is his infatuation. I think he'd take C, All of the Above."

- CHARLAINE: "I'm looking forward to meeting Sookie's Great Grandfather." Her fave episode? "I Will Rise Up"

- JOE, on being inducted into the brotherhood of the sock: "You're gonna like this weekend's episode."

- Moderator asked if Eric had to choose between Pam and Sookie, who would he choose? True Blood creator Charlaine Harris says: Pam!

- ALAN on S4: "People who know the books know that there's a character who doesn't really know who he/she is and becomes someone else."

- FAN: "What's it like working with animals on set?" KRISTIN: "Skarsgard isn't so bad once you get to know him."

- KRISTIN's favorite line: "I've been hearing and answering to 'hookah' a lot." NELSAN's favorite line: "I personally like 'Bitch.'"

- Of all the creatures on True Blood, ALAN would want to be a shifter.

- ALAN on WTFranklin: "We're going to luxuriate in the nature of his psychopathology."

- ALAN: "I believe Bill and Sookie are soulmates. I personally root for things to work out between them. I believe their love is true."

- TRUEBIE: "When is Tara gonna get a break?" ALAN: "Towards the end of this season. But it won't last..."

- ALAN likes the vampires in "Near Dark" & "Let the Right One In." Denis likes the vampires in "Thirst." Joe likes Kiefer in "Lost Boys."

- Alan Ball has not seen Twilight.

- Favorite True Blood moment one or off the screen? ALAN: "This one. This is the closest I'll ever get to being a rock star."

- Favorite moment? JOE: "When Alan asked me to become a series regular."

- Favorite moment? ANNA: "I get to kick some ass this season."

- DENIS: "The culture on the set of True Blood is the best I've ever had in my life. Everybody on that set, you fall in love with."

- CHARLAINE: "My favorite True Blood moment was shooting my cameo." (In the Season 2 finale, at Merlotte's)

- TRUEBIE: "How has Bill's evolution affected you?" STEPHEN: "You never know what you're going to get. But it's so delicious."

And that's it. :P

Here's a video of the panel. It is Part 1, so I guess they will upload Part 2, etc., soon.



And an Ausiello interview to Ball, Paquin and Moyer.

That trailer is amazing! I think this is going to be the best season to date! :thumbsup: --Glad tomorrow's Sunday! ;)

Thanks PV for the pannel breakdown. CH IMO has differant idea than AB on his direction I think...I am not sure if AB is going to be 100% true to the novels, but personally, if that's the case, I find it refreshing. I have only begun to read them and I feel AB took the work and made it better...which is rare IMO to like the show/film better than the novel...
