DVD review: True Blood Season 4 – Celebrities Today!
True Blood has a fake Eric.
Let’s be honest, there isn’t a vampire as bad as Eric. Anywhere. Not even that shiny emo kid who doesn’t care too much for wolves in that mega franchise comes close.
So when you take Eric, the virile, sado-masochistic sex symbol, and turn him into a lap dog who can’t control his impulses and stays quarter-to-drooling, then we’re going to have a problem.
Am I right, ladies? Ladies?
Okay, maybe I’m alone on this one, but turning Eric into an imbecile does not redeem Sookie’s whiney self.
This season picks up a year and a bit after where season 3 ended: with Sookie finding out she’s actually a fairy. Straight off the bat, we are shown that the fairies have more to them than meets the eye.
She flees them and once back home in Bon Temps, Sookie discovers Bill is the new King Of Louisiana, which means Eric has amnesia, but is still enamoured by Sookie.
But in-between all that, they have to destroy necromancers who pose a threat to the vampires.
Best thing about this season: LaFayette discovering his powers as a medium.

Angelina Jolie 60 minutes full videoHere’s what the 36-year-old actress had to share: “I always felt not traditionally beautiful. I have big features…as I get older I look like my mom. And I love my mom. You start to kinda put your lineage in line of the different things you are. I see the Native American in me I can see the German from my father’s side and you come to love the combination,” Angie said. “As long as Brad [Pitt] thinks I’m beautiful…I wake up and I want to be a smarter person. But I feel like that’s certainly what I’m encouraging my girls to do,” Angelina continued. Angie teared up when talking about her mother. “My mother was a full-time mother,” Angelina said. “She didn’t have much of her own career, her own life, her own experiences … everything was for her children, I will never be as good a mother as she was. She was just grace incarnate. She was the most generous, loving — she’s better than me.” Angelina also discussed negative tabloid stories. “I don’t see those things. I don’t know who they are but I assume they’re not me. They’re not who I am. They’re not what I spend my day caring about. I find them quite shallow and often quite wrong.”
For its 35th anniversary the San Francisco Decorator Showcase returned to the Classic Revival mansion on 2020 Jackson Street, which had also been the home of the 1991 showcase. The honey-colored brick structure overlooking the Bay was designed in 1902 by German-born architect Julius E. Krafft (1855-1937), and is being offered for $17.5 million (as of June 2012.) Our Claudia Juestel, of Adeeni Design, gives us a tour…
