If it hasn’t been invented yet, how about we start a drinking game where you have to drink every time one of the hunky guys from True Blood appears shirtless? Sign. Me. Up!
With every new hour of the Alan Ball-created HBO series, there’s always a chance that one of the many men will appear either shirtless or naked in the course of any given scene. Kudo’s to Ball, who clearly knows how to keep the gay (and straight) fans happy and, of course, how to keep them watching True Blood every Sunday night.
SInce I’ve seen the next few episodes, it’s safe to say the eye candy is going to keep on coming and, trust me, it does not disappoint. The dim and loveable Jason (ripped up Ryan Kwanten) continues to fight his growing lust for Vamp Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll), who is in the midst of breaking up with cute and dopey Hoyt (Jim Parrack). Seeing Jason overwhelmed and confused by his emotions (and dropping to do push-ups every time he wants to push his sexually charged feelings aside) is almost as wonderful as the scenes where he is sans shirt, which, thankfully, are often.

If you are caught up on the show (SPOILER ALERT if you are not caught up on the current episodes, proceed with caution), you know that she and the amnesiac Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) have finally done the nasty which has given us plenty of opportunity to gaze at Skarsgard’s lean, tight physique. But I’m torn as to whether I like this kinder, gentler Eric or prefer the sardonic, fierce, ball-buster he was before the witch’s spell took away his mojo. (Which do you prefer?)
Then there’s Bill (Stephen Moyer) who is no longer with Sookie and has landed in the role of King and, in my opinion, is finally interesting and sexy. In years past, his pining for Sookie was at the point of ridiculousness as nothing else mattered. Since some time passed between ….CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE
