Real News. Real Funny.
Doom MD: That show jumped the shark with the introduction of witches and glow faeries.
mariner314: Looking forward to Billith.
brewswane: I live there and have to say that subbys headline makes no sense at all. "camp' Minden??? Referring to New Orleans doesnt make any sense either since it is almost 300 miles away
Freakman: It's artillery propellant, so it's not the stuff that makes the artillery round explode. It's the stuff that explodes inside the artillery tube to push the artillery round downrange. It burns fast and hot but doesn't create an explosion in the traditional sense. If this stuff went off, it would cause a huge, bright fire but not much else. Great for arson, not so great for blowing up Tru:Blood plants./artillery officer//I hope Billith catches a stake next season
Rich Cream: So purchasing wasn't informed that inventory had already been filled? Were they producing it but there was no place to send it? To keep the contract and employees going? It's a former ammunition plant being leased, so the explosives are left over from previous company? If the new company produces explosives also why wasn't that mentioned?
slayer199: mariner314: Looking forward to Billith.I'm not. IMHO, they killed the show.The interesting thing about TB was how the vampires coped with maintaining (or failing to maintain) their humanity. While some may have suspected that Bill was duplicitous, it was confirmed at the end of the season 2 years ago. Eric was the one that has the firmer hold on his humanity (compliments of Godric).The writers painted themselves into a corner. At least with the previous seasons, they more or less followed the basic plotlines of the books. This season they went completely off the reservation. Sookie doesn't choose Eric, Billith, etc. There's no vampire alive or dead that can defeat Lilith. Anything they'd come up with would be contrived nonsense (and don't even think about having Bill beat Lilith from within because his willpower is so great...Bill met the True Death).
labrat8420: What got these guys in trouble is taking gubmint money without a proper disposal site for the munitions components.
