Has True Blood taken things too far this year?

Has True Blood taken things too far this year?

This video from E concerns me. First off, there was no “werewolf gang rape” in True Blood that I ever saw and I watch each episode at least four times each week. Also, I don’t get why E says that the show is gross, shocking and disgusting and that it is shocking the fans. I know of no True Blood fans that feel this way and our site gets most of them visiting.

And, this is not the first time that Rolling Stone has had a nude cover. They go back to when John Lennon and Yoko Ono were nude on the cover November 23, 1968. That’s 42 years folks!

Get your facts straight, “E”!

Let us know what you think about the opinions shared in the video below.  We know that True Blood can be shocking and fun, but are you shocked by True Blood, in a bad way this season?  

Did this cover go too far?   Is the show going too far?

    Wow, E! was saying that there was a werewolf gang rape scene? That’s some serious bull sh*t. Whoever the fact checker is for E! sucks at their job. I I have been a fan since day one @ have read all the books. I also got 10 people invested in the show and they all love it. None of us find it remotely gross or disgusting. Only shocking sometimes, but in a very good way. Wow E! news, way to be a bunch of douche bags.

      I think that the ‘werewolf gang rape’ scene was when Debbie Pelt was joining Russell Edgington’s pack. If you only saw the preview when Debbie was getting crowd surfed, I imagine you could make that assumption.

        Correct, it was not gang rape per se rather, a gang BANG as in fangbanger with Debbie Pelt (who was not trailer trash in the book series, but still a psycho) but, IMHO, E’s reaching for ratings as they choose to attack a popular commodity…

    I read an article saying that the controversy is based on the fact that it is the first mainstream cover that shows naked men in a sexual way. In the past, it has only been women getting sexually objectified and naked men were presented in a more humorous way. Is it shocking? Heck yes! But that is what is so great about ‘True Blood.’ This E!News review is silly…I mean seriously, when has showing an HBO full sex scene ever allowed on E!News?

      Excellent point. If the cover had been Paquin, Woll, Wesley it would have been “Wow, look at the hot chicks from True Blood splattered w/ blood on the cover of Rolling Stone!” not “OMG! My toddlers might see this magazine at the grocery store – Scandal!”

      Not that Anyone should be “objectified” or made to look like a mindless object. These people are having So Much Fun! There IS a difference!! Besides, All of this “Its offensive to show Men as sexual beings” Crap? Newsflash: Men ARE sexual beings…Have been for Centuries!! heaven forbid they depict grown people as having or enjoying sexual desire and attraction for Each other!!
      ooohhh! Forgot People Arent “supposed” to feel like that! Thats Conservative bullcrap! True Blood is about More than “just sex”
      Its about hope,love,forgiveness,tolerance and acceptance!
      If people Are offended with the mag They Dont have to pick up a copy! If people are offended by the program on HBO They Dont have to watch it!!
      Don’t buy the dvds either and dont attend ANY conventions!
      TB has conveyed a message that its ok to be flawed fouled up and human. No 1 on the show has a “perfect” life! “perfectly happy” life? Now who’s being unrealistic!!
      There is Much that can be learned fromm this show
      Its My favorite and the Best Show on Tv if you ask me!

I never saw a werewolf rape scene….are you sure you’re watching the same show that we watch? I think Ryan might be a little jealous that he hasn’t been invited to appear on the show!

    Total crap .. I would say the reviewer has not watched the show but has gone by comments made around the internet. There was no such scene. Never. True Blood has gone to that point of almost crossing the line but stops and lets the viewers take the story further in their minds. I can only assume this person is talking about Debbie Pelt’s initiation at Lou Pines. Nope never happened. The show is on HBO for a reason. There is alot of wasted material on tv right now and thank goodness for True Blood and Alan Ball! If people can’t handle it then need to switch something more realistic and depressing like Law and Order.
    They are way off the mark.

Hey look at the reg tv and there are shows there that come awful close to the mark there. Ya’ll like violence, sex and mayhem on the reg channels so why can’t we have our mayhem on a channel that we pay to see. if ya don’t want to see it then click the remote to something else and leave the gore and sex to us..

    I agree there was no gang bang, and I don’t find any of it offensive. I think the cover is hilarious. But someone who really didn’t watch might have thought the Debbie initiation turned into a rape. After all, didn’t when Coot turned into the wolf on stage next to Debbie didn’t we all think for just one second….I know the people watching at my house did.

    I’m offended Senior Editor Sean Woods saying, “True Blood is all about sex.” No, it’s not – it’s much more than that. Kristin Dos Santos, don’t speak on behalf of the audience. You can’t speak for all of us, we love True Blood for what it is…have you checked the ratings? I think it speaks for itself.

    What the hell? When was there a werewolf gang rape scene? I don’t know what show E is watching but it isn’t True Blood. I find the show no way gross, shocking, or disgusting. I am not shocked at all by the sex scenes or kill scenes in True Blood. That’s what we expect, it’s True Blood not twilight! The cover of the Rolling Stone is also perfectly acceptabe. It’s not like it’s on the cover of “Teen Bop”. There have been at least 30 other Rolling Stone covers with nude people on them. I don’t understand why they are making such a big deal about the cover and the show. Stupid people…
    PS I personaly think the show has tons of humor.

    I never understood people that complain over things they see on their television that can easily be turned off if they don’t like it. They just want something to bitch about to get attention. So of course they’re going to go after a very successful show like True Blood.

    And there was NEVER any werewolf gang rape scene. I don’t where they got that from. Damn idiots.

    I personally think that E! is a little crazy. I have been a fan since the first season, and of the books before that. I, in no way, think that the show is gross or disgusting. I love it! Do I think it’s shocking? Of course. But definately not in a bad way. It’s on HBO people. It’s allowed a little sexuality (or a lot). But it’s expected. The story is still interesting and it keeps you on the edge of your seat. If you can’t handle a little nudity…well then take the stick out of your butt. As for the cover of “Rolling Stone”, is it really a magazine that a kid should be buying anyway? Get over yourself E!.

    I was really shocked when I saw the E! news video in the network. WTH? there was NO werewolf gang rape! I also watch those episode more than twice a day, it’s ridiculous. Kristin is aa prudish liar who has lost all my respect as a tv critic, and Ryan Seacrest is a real idiotic moron who (as someone said above) is just jealous that he’s not in that TB soup everybody talks about. The cover is wonderful: it’s artistic, it’s sexy, it’s shocking, it’s beyond boundaries,it’s well taken and designed,it’s erotic… IT’S THE SHOW! the show itself! I can’t believe how many prudish people still are in the US media. Those people on E! should first review the contents of everyday newspapers and other channels, including reality shows, that show more violence and potentially damaginf images than this simple magazine cover. the hell with you, E! entertainment! LONG LIVE TRUE BLOOD!

    And by the way…it DID NOT GO TOO FAR!

    I agree, this piece of totally overtly-exaggerated and sensationalised news by E probably will help with TB’s viewership numbers, not to mention the sale of RS mag. I don’t agree with the werewolve rape scene though – she’s probably referring to that episode where Debbie Pelt went through the pack initiation and got branded ? Obviously the S Editor was not a fan of the show, which doesn’t surprise me on why she didn’t even watch that episode properly.

    The thing I don’t get, who are they exactly blaming for this ? AB, the actors or RS ? What’s stupid is that while all these conservative people are getting their panties in a tight wad, AB, the actors and RS are prob laughing their way to the bank. LOL

    Oh, Kristin Dos Santos. I’ve liked you since you filled me in with “Buffy” spoilers, but you have fallen low: “True Blood has always been vampire porn.”? And the gang-bang? Get your facts straight and leave that TV Expert chair for a couple of weeks.

    Saying that True Blood is only about sex is like saying “The Sopranos” was only about mobsters, “Rome” only about killing people, “Alice” just about a girl partying and “In Treatment” simply about people whining about their moms in theraphy.

    As a fan, I’m insulted by assumptions that we are “shocked” and “disgusted”.

    1) It’s much easier to talk about titillating subject matter on tv when it is framed as “Has __ gone to far?”, “Is ___ too sexy?”, “What about the children?!?” etc. By tut-tuting about TB the anchors get to have their cake (showing/discussing the cover) and eat it too (remaining critical). It’s a pretty hypocritical stance to take.

    2) Kristin De Santos’ view that the show “has always been vampire porn” is strange, given that she’s been a pretty ardent supporter of the program in the past. The show has strong sexual content, but to dismiss it as “porn” is pretty rough.

    3) Everyone freaking out does realize, it’s not real blood right?

      Great point about the hypocrisy in this stupid “E” piece, AIDSBurger. Notice how as they’re railing about this “shocking” and “controversial” cover that kids might see, the camera is panning up, down, and all around the blood-spattered nakedness. Could the camera have gotten any closer?

      Anyone who dismisses “True Blood” as mere “vampire porn” either hasn’t watched it or doesn’t understand what it is they’ve been seeing. There are few shows on TV that come anywhere near TB’s artistry in combining humor, pathos, character development, human (and superhuman, obviously) relationships, and yes, sex. Long may it run.

As far as the jaw dropping moments we try to be open minded but we are all hoping those moments don’t become a major portion of the entertainment. And yes, we do leave the room when parts of the show make us uncomfortable. Hopefully we are not talking out of both sides of our mouth here. We do enjoy the drama, the intensity of the show and the every changing events that keep you tuning in crying for more. Keep up the great work!

    Incoming rant ~ stand back ,give me some room. This is a joke right? Coming from the E network whose almost entire program line up consist of programs that made household names out of young women that have made sex tapes and appeared nude in magazines and have no other discernible talents. E has been instrumental in making these girls famous initially for bad behavior then famous for being famous. In an era of salacious entertainment journalism that thrives off of and reports minute details of who did not wear panties today, whose boob job is bigger and jailhouse and rehab reports I’d like to say to E to STFU.
    Lazy fact checking and reporting is what passes for news and it must have been a slow news day to warrant so much coverage over this magazine cover. We have seen naked pregnant celebs and barely there swimsuit pics that exposed more than this cover.

    Rolling Stone has often pushed the envelope in past years. Imo this cover is not shocking other than how incredibly beautiful their bodies are. Anything about TrueBlood that is shocking is because it is outside of the box innovative creative tv and not the usual mind numbing reality show, predictable dumbing down programing fodder offered up to the viewing public. I do not need vapid talking heads to tell me what is shocking or has crossed the line. That they are on air and make a living at pseudo reporting is what shocks me.

    She had herself branded…something she also agreed to and joined in with the Other Were skanks to be subjugated by Russell Edgington…Who had used them for centuries to do His bidding! Alcide Hervaux had his OWN ideas on How a Werewolf should be and She couldnt deal with that!

    I don’t even know where to begin with this one. First of all, my very conservative, 62-year old mother, was willing to go find this magazine for me if I couldn’t find it. That’s saying a lot right there.
    Secondly- E! ‘news’ is just another media outlet trying to put their own spin on stuff, not getting facts straight, and blowing things out of proportion.
    Thirdly- as Lynn says, what about John Lennon and Yoko Ono 42 years ago? What about Demi Moore nude on the cover of Esquire back in 1991- covered in paint, but nude nonetheless? These guys/gal were strategically covered, and um, fake blood!!
    What about all the advertising on tv- don’t companies try to sell sex all the time? And haven’t we seen nudity on the main networks? Yes, yes we have. If you need examples, E!, I’ll present those too.
    There’s a lot more to this show than sex and violence, and it’s most definitely not porn anyway. This was a perfectly timed cover, with only the 3 epis left- what better way to peak curiosity!
    Lastly, I have kids, and I know a lot of people who watch this do- it’s not something I let them watch, and I won’t be flaunting this cover around in my home when I do get the magazine.

    Whatever, E!.

    You see – I think everyone usually thinks of a threesome as 2 gals and a dude, yet here at Rolling Stone magazine they flaunt 2 men and a lady? OMG, but guess what? Charlaine Harris implied it in Book 6 and she got very raunchy on it – made a skewed reference to a Cook Off or in this case… She let you fill in the blanks, make no mistake – the books have lots of sex scenes and violent gory fights, so E! is trying hard to pump their circulation by “staking” a claim they cannot substantiate!

    Oh yes, BTW, in the late 70’s country-rock band Dr Hook did a song which declares you’re no-one unless you appear on the cover of Rolling Stone…

    Why don’t they mention anything about the extreme and very graphic violence displayed in video games? Some of the violence, in these games, make TB look like a walk in the park. What about the sexuality in todays graphic novels and comics? While we’re at it, take a look at Cosmopolitan. If memory serves me correctly, they’ve had more than a few naked models on the cover. Not to mention the fact they, blatantly, advertise the articles within (5 best sex positions that men like) and it’s sold in your local grocery store right next to the gum at the checkout stand. Common, E if you’re going to pick on TB and Rolling Stone you’re going to have to pick on a whole lot of other shows and magazines.

    I thought the cover was great and didn’t find it offensive at all.

    By the way the movie 300 was shown on basic cable at 8:00 in the evening when all the young children could see it. There was more violence in 3 minutes of that movie than there was in 3 seasons of TB. I find it rediculous that level of violence can be shown on tv, but God help us all if you show a nipple.

    I have been a fan since the beginning and have NEVER been offended or shocked. Surprised and delighted, yes. Wonderfully entertained, yes. Joyful that I found a show that stretches the boundaries and at the same time is grounded in the same issues that all people face, even though it’s shrouded in supernatural beings – YES!

    An all too common phenomenon among people who bash things: they don’t actually look at what they’re bashing. These are the people who insult movies before they even come out for example.
    “E” and their presenters, this doesn’t mean they have to sit through an entire movie/play an entire watch every episode to criticize any pieces of work. It just means they make sure your criticism is valid.
    If they want to comment on the quality of something, try to actually watch/read/play/listen to at least a substantial part of that work (about five minutes of something truly so bad it’s horrible to they should be enough to know it’s crap). “E” News is full flashing images and the “distress these images cause to photosensitive viewers”. They should be more concerned about that than the sex in True Blood that last only few seconds.
    If a person decides they hate something before even watching it their opinion may be less than dependable…

    Agreed! E! is very hypocritical! They are going to be the FIRST to send their reporters to MUG Anna, Stephen and Alexander for an interview on Emmy night. I can’t believe E! turned into the Disney Channel, like their stories are wholesome and family orientated. Riiiiight!?

    I think we all should write to the E! and demonstrate our dissatisfaction. And tell them that we will stop watching the E!

    Excuse me for saying it like this, but this is typical America! We in Europe can not believe you can watch movies with more blood than water in television but a nipple in the picture or on television is a disgrace. All sex scenes of TB was made very nicely and showed “nothing” but left a lot to the imagination. Bravo, TB,!

    I think the picture on the Rollings Stones is very nice. Why are we so afraid of the body “beauty”, anyway?
