There is another joust, this time between Lord Gregor, and the newly introduced Sir Lloris, a.k.a Knight of the Flowers. Sir Lloris tricks Lord Gregor's horse, which enrages Lord Gregor.

Bloody Hell or Bloody Brilliant or Both

Posted by movieguyjon

Unless you've been sleeping in a coffin this whole time, you'll no doubt know about the season premiere of True Blood last week. Being a fan of the first season, I tuned in through my devious ways and got re-acclimated with the world of Sookie Stackhouse and her vampire pals. In fact, the season premiere picked up right where the last season left off, with the death of a certain individual who may or may not have been Lafayette. From the outset, the "gang" deals with this death in their own way and we get a basic idea of where the season is headed.

A lot of the internet has reacted favorably to the first episode, and I'm not going to sing that different of a tune. I'll definitely be checking in every week and you should too if you haven't already. There's blood, gore and tons of sex to satisfy everything you need out of a vampire television series. Oh, and there's other stuff like story and character development if you're into that too!

Episode 2 airs tonight, so if you haven't already, you best start watching the first season. You'll be glad you did.
