These posters are the worst! First, so they want us to believe Sam is in his 50’s? Cuz that dog isn’t even a puppy still…So shifters age slower than usual-fine..I’ll buy that. 2nd-Sam’s “Go To” is a Collie…WTF is with this big Hound? AB needs to work on oozing smexy instead of just baffling everyone. E/S in the torture room was a start…
I’m just not feelin these Posters IMO its been a waste of money. I also think they’ve had to many of them. I wanna see the Character Posters/Photos like we got last year. I mean where are those? are we even getting the Character ones, cuz if i remember correctly they had already released the Character ones at this point last year.
I still maintain that these posters don’t have anything to do with the narrative of the show. They’re like the razor and minicooper ads last year (much more cleaver campaign last year btw). They are as if this world is Charlaine’s world and the vamps and shapeshifters/weres are out.
It’s not very clever, and it’s been done, with the fly/bull/dog poster, but I don’t mind it so much, personally. If anything, it has been interesting having new stuff to look at and comment every 3-4 days (promos/posters, etc).
Kathy, I agree. I don’t think the posters are supposed to be connected to, or represent, the characters and are just part of a silly little advertising campaign. I’m actually enjoying them a bit. I tend not to take things so literally and am just trying to enjoy both the series and the books for what they are: pulpy, fun, silly, certainly not Shakespeare, dark and smusing. Both have suble nuances, but they are what they are. My world will not come to an end regardless of the outcome in either. Just enjoying the ride.
And really..no one in the series has good taste in clothes! Bill in his moth eaten robe or Eric in his wife beaters and track suits… Well, maybe Sam in those jeans and Pam (off hours).
Stupid, Kool-aid drinking, “need to wake up”, Bill loving Diana
The expression on the dog’s face = “Moooommmmm! Sally is squeezing me too tiiiiiight!” LOL
Ok, from what little we know about shifters … it starts around puberty … roughly 13 for Sam (in his TB back story with Maryann). So, the dog would be roughly mid teens we’ll figure. Let’s for 16 for argument’s sake.
2010 – 1962 = 48 years + 16 years old = 64 years old now. So, it can definitely be Sam’s mom or dad (we don’t know the gender of the dog in the picture) … because that’ll make the parents be around late 20’s/early 30’s when they had Sam.
As for the posters overall – I can take or leave them. They haven’t really added anything to the campaign overall. Just something else to get us to talk about True Blood.
This is vaguely amusing. I almost feel like these posters are for people who don’t watch the show at all. To grab their attention, make them say, “hmmm” but do these posters even get seen by people who aren’t already fans? Maybe they’re out in the bigger cities but where I live in the south, True Blood is a word-of mouth thing, not an advertised one. I practically have to bribe people to watch it! lol
ok…..it’s OFF…..BUT I JUST FOUND A PICS OF ERIC NAKED ON SET!!!!!
so…..i don’t wanna post here the link ‘couse it’s off…..maybe i should send a mail…or you can go on TrueBloodItaly on Facebook or on Twitter TrueBloodItalia.
An THIS PLEASE ! I mean *SPONTANEOUSLY COMBUSTS* Literally ….http://s3.amazonaws.com/data.tumblr.com/tumblr_l319ep4dBG1qc5buuo1_1280.jpg?AWSAccessKeyId=0RYTHV9YYQ4W5Q3HQMG2&Expires=1274987355&Signature=6y9qgUcyfH5AZzVb%2BhI0ap2Gvz0%3D
I’m not a moderator here, but anyway, if someone want to discuss these pics, please, I want to ask for your patience to wait until SVB make a post to discuss them. This is the kind of information that deserves its own post because it actually generates a big reaction and a lot of comments. Due to the growing number of comments, SVB actually needs our cooperation for organizing our comments on each respective post. We can help her a lot, if we wait just a little until she write her post.
Thanks Gigi. I think Gigi summed it but again, I must ask that you NOT post OT links into these threads. The Sookieverse Blog also has a Facebook account – you can post these links there if you like. If you do, we will all be able to see them. That’s probably the best bet and then these blog posts can remain on topic. SVB will also see them there and if it’s newsworthy, she will create a new post as soon as she can. We would really appreciate your cooperation on this. Thanks!
