The only thing I know less about True Blood is if any TR readers enjoy it or consider it nerdy. However, the only alternative I had to running this full trailer for True Blood season 5 was yet more Prometheus and Amazing Spider-Man bullshit, I figured a bit of total True Blood ignorance would be a pleasant change of pace to my constant Prometheus/Spidey bitching. Question: Can I assume Chris Meloni’s True Blood character is the same fridge-humping cafeteria worker he played in Wet Hot American Summer? ‘Cause that would be pretty awesome.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
