I hate Amy, but shes STRAIGHT from Alan Ball's world of horrible pretentious overly educated art chicks with issues. See: all of Claire's friends on Six Feet Under.
I like the show, but I hated a few things. I HATE the virginity scene. It's so cheesy and blech. I mean, it's such a gay man's fantasy about how a chick wants to lose her virginity. I HATE Tara's subplot. They need to weave her more into Sookie's world, not continue making her a separate world that feels excessive. I'm bored by Jason, as he is a fucktard. I'm not upset about Sookie being kind of dumb on the show cos honestly, I think she's a fucking idiot in the books, and even worse, I think she's an arrogant idiot who talks about how hot she is like every other page. I'm glad they're playing her down. but this last episode..it just felt over-the-top with Ball's whole 'vampire struggle=gay rights' thing. Her 'coming out' speech? Her 'accept me ladida?' Blech. They could have done something way cooler and more tense with the vampires coming into the bar. In the book, it's a much better moment. There was no reason to rush through it to watch Jason being a moron some more and then fuck yet another chick.
In the books it doesn't bother me that she's vain. I imagine listening to guys think things like that about you might make one's ego a bit overinflated. I also don't think she's quite an idiot, but she certainly isn't merely naive either. It's almost like a disorder, isn't it?
Jason is utterly boring. I get it, he's hot, and everyone wants to see him nekid. Fine. That can be done in five minutes.
Tara is so predictable. From the drunken mother to the crush on Jason to her angry woman routine--nothing there seems new or even important to the main storylines. She did redeem herself for me in the sixth (?) episode when she was taking care of Sookie. That was kinda sweet and I could actually see them as friends.
Bill is so maudlin as to be dull. Dull, dull, dull! I've never seen such a dull vampire. Someone else said it earlier, but we get it. Blood taking is sex to Bill. Move on!
