Aphrodisiac? Fairy?

First 4 episodes: "Incessant orgies powdered with Maryann's (Michelle Forbes) aphrodisiac fairy dust. "(Randy)

Aphrodisiac? FAIRY? If more spoilers of this kind will keep coming in, I might be tempted to become a True Blood fan ;-) Can I join team Maryann?

And to bore you all a little bit, here is a painting of the Maenads' dance in Greek mythology:

Dance, True Blood. Dance.

Who would have expected this, remembering what was said last year, when Michelle Forbes attended the premiere of True Blood:

"I love how much humor there is, it's so innocent and violent and creepy ..."
(Someone please correct me, if I got this wrong, please?)

Thanks to Deb for sending the HBO red carpet video.

P.S.:::: And a screen cap from one of the many promo videos. Thanks, Mandala, you rock !!

A Force to be Reckoned With

I'm Chris. On the Global Frequency.

A Taste of True Blood and Maryann

An HBO True Blood Special is now airing every day, leading up to the Premiere of Season 2, on 14th June. True Blood's writer Alan Ball recaps the first season and talks in some detail about the characters, including Maryann (played by Michelle) - now a recurring character in Season 2.
Alan comments on Maryann's apperance around the 15 min mark:
Maryann Forrester is a very interesting person...[and Tara's encounter with her has opened] up the door to a whole new world of weirdness.

Around the 26 min mark, Ball has this to say:
Maryann is something that I've never really seen before. She's a force to be reckoned with, and she's got some things she wants from this town, and none of them are good.

Part of the fun of Season 2 is the slowly unravelling "What Maryann is?", "What she wants?,and "How she goes about putting all that into motion?"

Keep on watching for a glimpse of a new scene with Maryann from the upcoming season towards the end.
All I can tell you is that it's very surprising.

Well, it sure looks like it!

I'm Randy. And you are on the Global Frequency.

Message to early blog visitors

For ~1 hour the blog goes into maintenance mode. Chris is going to install a new template/new layout. Some widgets / content of the widgets -- on the sidebars -- will be broken, but will be back within an hour. If all goes well, the new xml template will be much cleaner and faster.

Hi, I'm iHelix. I've been added to this blog as author. and wanted to say hi! It's a delight to be here.

At this early stage, mirandazero.blogspot doesn't show up in google or yahoo search results. The pages have been added to Google index, they are all verified. The crawlers are a little late to the party, though.

True Blood's Maryann in Season 2 - The Mystery Continues

Maryann to Tara in Season one: I'm a lot of things.
Michelle Forbes in an interview: I am a maenad. (Oops, that would explain a lot, Michelle F. is not Michelle F. but a maenad, always was.)
The IMDb (Internet Movie Database) thinks Michelle Forbes plays Maryann Forrester.
In the books she is also called Callisto. But there is no Maryann, I have been told.
Some people believe that she is a mysterious creature, a minotaur.
On the HBO promo videos we can see her: throwing a party, dancing, teasing Sam, whispering to Tara, perhaps scratching Sookie.

While in an episode of season one she showed up as a freaky pig lady, we are still waiting to see a promo for her hog.

Question on the HBO TB forums:
What else and who else would you like to see featured?

Maryann's Hog!
What's his name? Could it be Mountain Oyster?
Or is he servant Karl in shifter disguise?
Is he an orgy attendee and if soooo...
Will Tara have "bacon" with her "Eggs"
Did he go "hog-wild" (not half-cocked, that's for her rooster) and father a litter of octohoggies?
Will he squeal her out?
Two words: Swine Flu?
So many questions and no Piggy Promo!!!

A Piggy fan group anyone?

Ciao Kate - In Treatment Episode 25

Einen kurzen Augenblick hatte ich befürchtet, sie würden in Episode 25 von 'In Treatment' die Figur Kate (Michelle Forbes) kompromittieren. Aber dann ging es gut aus. Bye Kate, mit einem lachenden und einem weinenden Auge - weil wir sie wohl kaum noch wiedersehen werden.
Die zweite Staffel von 'In Treatment' ist anders. Die intime, intensive Kammerspiel-Form wurde aufgeweicht. Es gibt einige fast Soap-Opera-artige Elemente. Mein Interesse an den Charakteren ist nicht sehr groß, selbst Gina ist irgendwie nicht mehr dieselbe. Die therapeutische Glaubwürdigkeit bzw. der Realitätsbezug leidet auch sehr. Ich könnte mir vorstellen, dass man mit dieser Glättung und Verflachung mehr Zuschauer erreichen will.

Hier zum Abschied einige Screencaps (mehr im Picasa-Album, einfach auf ein Bild klicken):
