Charlaine Harris' post-mortem of HBO's 'True Blood.'

Charlaine Harris has talked to about the last episode of HBO's "True Blood," which saw its season finale on August 24. Numerous spoilers on tap, as well as Harris adorably calling the mysterious Members Only Jacket Guy from the last frames of the "Sopranos" series finale "the guy in the Maker's Mark jacket."

'True Blood': Sookie deftly avoids the glowing oranges

"True Blood" is pretty much indefensible, my buddy argued last night. Bad or at best campy acting. Bad, exposition-laden dialogue. Dumb plot turns. Scattershot character development. Yet, it's still so goddamn addictive.

The fourth season of "True Blood," scheduled to debut in June on HBO, draws, unsurprisingly, from Charlaine Harris' fourth Sookie Stockhouse novel, "Dead to the World." Creator Alan Ball and the cast of "True Blood" dished on what to expect recently

True Blood: As worthless as tits on a turtle

Despite the mid-season promise of a battle royale between vampire royalty, Sookie's suitors and werewolves, not only did none materialize in the season finale of "True Blood," just about every plot turn was unsatisfying or downright dumb.

True Blood: Revelations

Shock of shocks, the "True Blood" scribes did not, as I predicted last time, stretch the Sookie reveal over three episodes. Nope, they spit it out immediately, starting with Sookie's reaction, which came in that charming manner that she and almost no one else usually greets ridiculous supernatural revelations

True Blood: The villian we've been waiting for

Until this season, "True Blood" has been all about how vampires relate to humans. In a metaphoric sense, they've represented just about every racial, sexual and political anxiety with which contemporary society struggles. Meanwhile, on a more surface level, the central plot line has focused on the dynamic between Vampire Bill and Sookie. The long and short: forbidden fruit, the search for humanity, S&M. You know, just like "Twilight."

True Blood: Love hurts

Love's never hurt quite like it did last night in TV land. Don Draper's a submissive — as in, the one who gets smacked in a dominant-submissive relationship — who, judging from the cut and hair color of his call girl, might have designs on letting Joan wallop him a bit. Meanwhile, on "True Blood" that familiar S&M formula for love is all out of whack.

'True Blood': Sookie has the force

It's not rare for an episodic hour-long drama that's built up a lot mythology to take on six story lines in one epsido, but because 'True Blood' veers so often from slapstick to drama to horror to soap-opera-style romance, the tonal shifts often feel really, really jarring.
