True Blood "Hard-Hearted Hannah" - Ensnared

After a string of intriguing episodes, this one left me flat, and perhaps the less that is said about this episode, the better. If there was a theme, it appeared to be entrapment. Sam, Sookie, Godrick, the 1920's couple... heck, even Bill is trapped.

If watching previous vampire series has taught us anything, it's that the flashback is inevitable. Sometimes it can turn out cool (last week's flashback of Eric being turned), sometimes it can be hokey -- this week's bloody speakeasy for example. Maybe I'm just paying less attention now, but it seems like a bit of the buzz and sheen has come off True Blood. None of the cool kids are tweeting about it now, anyway. Until next week...
