Since it was far too disgustingly humid to do anything outside yesterday, god forbid, Nathaniel came over and I caught him up on some True Blood (back on HBO for Season 2 June 14th!). I keep telling people how delightfully trashy and filthy and grimy it is, but watching the episodes again, I realized I'd been leaving out how it's also hilarious and deceptively well-acted (Rutina Wesley may struggle mightily with that bayou accent, but the girl can turn on a dime from world-weary and pissed off to childlike and hopeful). And it's chock full of great actors, down to the smallest of roles -- I really hope we get to dig into Todd Lowe's Terry Bellefleur this coming season.
Anyway, lucky me, I was able to find the following scene on YouTube, which I present to you as my single favorite scene on any TV show this season.
Now, help me decide here, what's my favorite part. Is it:
-- Lafayette removing his earrings once Arlene tells him the rednecks returned the burger because it "might have AIDS."
-- Arlene's "Oh fudge!" faux-despair that she's caused something dramatic to go down. (Seriously, Carrie Preston for all sorts of win.)
-- Lafayette licking the mayo off the redneck's AIDS-burger.
-- Lafayette wrecking holy hell like some kind of super commando trained in the art of fool-stomping.
-- Jason Stackhouse, high as you please on V, giggling like a child and snapping his fingers in approval.
I think they're all winners, don't you?
