Welcome to TB Peter, I know you will mix it up good with Bill and Eric. All this possible S5 "vampire business" is making me happy.

peter mensch is going to bring an intensity to the TrueBlood cast. he's going to make other actors like Alexander Skarsgard,Denis O'Hare Stephen Moyer,Christopher Meloni come up to his level of acting. maybe now we may get some awards/nominations next season???
