Roush Review: HBO's Bloody Good Sundays
This weekend, HBO fills out its summer Sunday lineup, as the final season of Entourage (begging the old "that's still on?" question) joins the red-hot True Blood and a resurgent Curb Your Enthusiasm, which airs its most uproarious episode of the season to date.
Let's take it from the top — or should I say, over-the-top — with a nod to True Blood (9/8c) for delivering the goods this season, adapting one of Charlaine Harris' best-ever storylines from the Sookie books and providing Alexander Skarsgard with a tour de force as the newly vulnerable Viking vampire Eric Northman. All memory of his majestic demonic past wiped clean by a possessed witch who's in over her head (the riveting Fiona Shaw as Marnie), Eric is like a lost child, playfully impulsive and clearly smitten by his caretaker Sookie but easily chastened and profoundly confused as to his true nature.
