I’ve watched True Blood since the first episode but I’ve never really been part of the ‘fandom’ to be honest. Still I’ve checked it out from time to time and one thing I have noticed is that the more vocal part of fandom hates Bill and loves Eric.

We’re not just talking stuff like “Bill is boring and Eric is interesting” but they think Bill is a horrible, loathsome, misogynistic piece of shit. I’ve even seen him compared to Adolf Hitler and Osama bin Laden. I’ve seen less vitriol tossed at Ramsay Bolton and Gregor Clegane.

The confusing part for me is these people also think Eric is a great person, that he gets Sookie, that he’s the ideal boyfriend, etc. Really? Look at the above clip. Eric breaks into the room of the daughter of one of his enemies and plans on brutally murdering her to mess with her father. Notice the threat of sexual violence as he moves his hand up her legs and grabs her crotch and asks her how her father would react if he tore her up there. (He only spares her once she reveals she has pertinent information.) This is just one of many horrible things Eric has done. I can think back to the second season when he kept Lafayette in his filthy dungeon and left him to die. (Lafayette later suffered from PTSD because of this). 

I’ve liked my share of villains and antiheroes (see: my icon) but Eric is an irredeemably loathsome person. Bill is hardly a ‘good’ guy but in comparison? He’s a saint. To judge Beel for his sins and overlook the laundry list of horrible things Eric has done throughout the series you really have to be obtuse.

30 Days of Carnivale

30. Best fight

Definitely the fight between Ben and Justin. From the moment where Justin pursues Ben into the cornfields and we flash back to Ben’s dreams of being similarly followed by the “Tattooed Man” from the beginning of the series my heart was racing. 

This was of course intended to be the first battle in an ongoing war and wasn’t intended to be the ‘final’ confrontation between the two (both Ben and Justin were to survive the fight, but left weakened by their wounds). I suppose had this been the *end* of the story it might be a little anticlimactic for Ben and Justin to only meet up briefly but taking it as the closing of one chapter and the beginning of the other, it’s definitely a great moment.

For all the talks of slow pace and nothing happening in Carnivale, I would point to this episode and the second season in general; the revelation of Management, the finding of Scudder and the battle between Ben and Justin. As stated earlier, compare that to Lost and how long it took to find out who Jacob was and what was up with the Smoke Monster. 

And with this we close out on my ‘30 Days of Carnivale’. I hope fans of the show liked revisiting it and if only one person checked out the show because of this, then all the better.

Let’s shake some dust!

29. Favorite location
Babylon. Just a very creepy place… a ghost town by day, actual ghosts by night. And did I mention the abandoned mine? Brrr…

28. Least favorite episode
If I had to pick it would be “Hot and Bothered”. Nothing sticks out, it’s just an episode that I find to be meh. I wasn’t a huge fan of the Cooch family/love quadrangle subplot either.

27. Favourite non-romantic OTP
Justin and Iris had a very twisted, very interesting relationship. The second season subdued some of that but it was still fascinating to watch.

Nothing specific comes to mind but this scene has a great performance from Clancy Brown (as usual).

24. Best scene involving eating/drinking
The scene where Tommy Dolan grills the waitress on the deaths of the children in the ministry fire is particularly effective. Robert Knepper does great acting as he describes the sight of the burnt corpses while cutting through the steak for effect, giving the audience a grisly image without actually showing it.

23. Talk about the music

Not much for me to say, except that Jeff Beal’s work on the show was fantastic. Here’s a sample.
