True Blood: Who Is Sookie Stackhouse’s Best Love Interest?

Alexander Skarsgard, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer

Even though Sookie Stackhouse swears off men pretty much every season, True Blood's resident faerie has gone through nearly half a dozen love interests in almost as many seasons.

This year, her new potential flame is a fellow faerie hybrid named Ben Flynn (Rob Kazinsky), who suddenly came into her life last week — which naturally makes us worry about who Ben really is. After all, it wouldn't be the first time that Sookie (Anna Paquin) got herself mixed up in trouble thanks to a love interest, be it Bill (Stephen Moyer), Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) or Alcide (Joe Manganiello). But which of Sookie's love interests has been the best for her? Let's take a look at the competition: read more

15 True Blood Spoilers: Plus, Why Powerful Vampire Eric Is "Completely Lost"

Alexander Skarsgard

Trying to get True Blood executive producer Alan Ball and the cast of the HBO series to give away anything about the upcoming fourth season is not easy. Oh, but how they love to tease! During Saturday's PaleyFest panel, we heard all about fairies, demon babies, amnesia (poor Eric!) and why — brace yourselves — Sookie and Bill are doomed for the time being.

Bill's not getting back into Sookie's, er, good graces any time soon. It's going to take a long while for her to get past Eric's... read more

Roush Review: Give Terriers a Chance

Michael Raymond-James and Donal Logue

Like a dog returning to a favorite bone, I can't stop singing the praises of FX's Terriers (Wednesdays at 10/9c), which has flown dangerously under the radar since premiering with little fanfare right after Labor Day. It's an easier series to love than it is to pigeonhole, which (along with a vague and misleading title) may explain why it has struggled to find a following beyond a passionate few. In a fall season that has been remarkable for so much unremarkable formula blandness at the network level, Terriers is the rare show whose endearingly messy and flawed characters get under your skin and stay there. ...

Roush Review: Terriers and Hellcats

Donal Logue, Ashley Tisdale

Don't look for the scruffy buddy-heroes of FX's Terriers to be named Best of Show. Top dogs they're not. These likably roguish mutts, private eyes who operate without a license because "we found that by not working with them we never have to worry about losing them," are the opposite of slick. Brawn is not their strong suit. But they're great, funny, funky company.
