If you’re an Amazon Prime member life is looking good. And if you’re not, become one soon. HBO just made a huge deal with Amazon that allows Amazon Prime members streaming access to select seasons of True Blood and unlimited access to past seasons of shows such as The Sopranos.

This means you don’t need a subscription to HBO or a Blu-Ray player to get your Bill hunger satisfied. Just subscribe to Amazon Prime and turn on your laptop or PC starting on May 21st to fulfill your need. An Amazon Prime membership is $99 a year, which averages out to approximately $8 a month. Not a bad deal when it includes 2 day shipping on millions of items, the ability to read free kindle books and of course unlimited streaming of movies, TV shows and now True Blood.

Rumour has it that the episodes available for True Blood and other active series will include seasons that are at least 3 yrs old.

Everyone's thankful for more Bill Compton!

Don't worry, Bill! Season seven will premiere soon!

Well hell’s bells! We’ve made it all the way up to the season six finale of our True Blood rewatch! It seems like only yesterday when we were discussing season one, and all its glory. We’ve breezed through all six seasons, and now we’ve only got about two months to wait until the premiere of season seven. But in the meantime, hop on over to our forum, where there’s been tons of discussion going on.

Join us at the Simply Moyer Forum, where we’re discussing episode 610: Radioactive. And now that we’ve completed our rewatch, we’ll continue analyzing all the episodes and speculating what we anticipate for the seventh and final season of True Blood.

UPDATE: New Bill Compton Spoilers for S7

From eonline.com comes some exciting news for Bill Compton fans. We already know we’re going back in time with Mr. Compton, but now we know we’re gonna meet the wonderful people who gave us our vampire hero.

Andrea: I’m going to not make a bad vampire pun in hopes of you answering me this: What the heck is going on with Bill Compton? Last season on True Blood he was so … yeah.

We’re going back in time to meet Bill’s parents, William Compton Sr. and Margaret Compton in 1855. We’lll also see Caroline Compton (Shannon Lucio) give birth to one of Bill’s kids in the 1850s. And in the present, get ready to meet Brigette, a smokin’ hot…microbiologist.


So Stevedom fans, watcha think is up with Brigette? Is she helping Bill cure Hep V or is she gonna compete for Bill’s affection? Or does Brigette fit into a plot line we can’t even envision?

UPDATE: This audition tape for Brigitte has surfaced on Vimeo. Based on the dialogue, it appears she is involved with someone who knows Willa. Time will tell if she will have any connection to Bill.

Is Mr. Gus a Vampire?

We knew a new character by the name of Mr. Gus was being introduced for True Blood’s seventh season, but we didn’t know much about him. Ausiello from TV Line has the scoop on the supposed new Big Bad.

…………………………………

Question: Do you know if we’re going to meet any of the beloved but sadly departed characters of the past on True Blood‘s final season? If not, do you have any other scoops? —Kenn

Ausiello: No word yet on any Nights of the Living Dead, but I can tell you that we’re getting what sounds like a new Big Bad in Mr. Gus. Though he’s a Japanese businessman, he’s apparently been so Americanized that he’d make J.R. Ewing seem Asian. (By which we mean he rocks a 10-gallon hat and speaks with a drawl.) Oh, and thanks to a business back-stab, he’s got a thirst for vengeance that’s described as “infinite.” So, while he’ll appear to be middle-aged, I have a hunch he’s immortal.

Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin at the Fights

Steve and Anna were in the crowd at the MGM Grand Garden Arena last night when Manny Pacquiao defeated Timothy Bradley by unanimous decision (118-110, 116-112, 116-112) to reclaim the welterweight title. Lucky for us, a fan was there and caught a photo with the Emerys! We’ll let shutupatl speak for himself:

Bertie Portal Beats the Sahara

Bertie Portal beat the Sahara, but he’s not ready to go home yet. It seems six days of running isn’t enough for our man Bert, he plans on running another 5 miles today in the charity stage of the marathon. Sometimes there are things just more important than a shower. You’re our man Bert!

Bertie’s life partner, Sam Scott Thomas, posted the following on Bertie Portal: Blazing a Trail FaceBook page.

“Bertie grimaced and smiled through the final official leg of the 29th Marathon de Sables and crossed the line tired, no, exhausted; but complete at what he had achieved in the Sahara. Today had cooler temperatures and a cloudy sky but the heat remained. Covering marathon distance,, runners had a split start, 07:30 and 08:30 with the top 200 staring in the later wave.
Bertie maintained a consistent pace, enjoyed the day and is satisfied with an incredible life changing week.

Big thanks to family, loved ones and sponsors.

.Just the charity stage tomorrow of approximately 5 miles and then a night in a hotel, shower and a bed…
He will be home soon.”

If you would like to recognize Bertie’s achievement, why not buy Bertie a virtual beer by donating to Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity.

Buy this man a cold one.

……………………………………………….

And the winner is …
We ran a little give-away for everyone that sent their best wishes and encouragement to Bertie during his running of the marathon and we’ve got a winner for the autographed photo of Stephen Moyer. Congratulations to Pat … the happiest girl ever!

Stephen Moyer Submitted for Emmy Nomination

According to goldderby.com, NBC is submitting Stephen Moyer for an Emmy nomination for the 66th Primetime Emmy’s to take place on August 25th. If accepted, Steve will be competing in the category Outstanding Lead Actor in a Movie or Miniseries for his role as Captain von Trapp in last years holiday presentation of The Sound of Music.

Carrie Underwood will be submitted for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Movie or Miniseries and Audra McDonald, Christian Borle and Laura Benanti will be eligible for Outstanding Supporting Actor/Actress in a Movie or Miniseries. And to top it off, The Sound of Music will be listed as a Special Class Program and will hopefully walk away with an award.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the Television Academy recognizes talent when they see it and Steve makes the nominations list. Not only would it be a coupe for Steve’s career, the Emmy would look great next to Anna’s Oscar and Golden Globe.

Bertie Portal’s on the Run in the Sahara

Extreme heat! Sand dunes! Rock filled terrain! This is Bertie Portal’s play ground at the moment. As you know, we’re big fans of Stephen Moyer’s best mate, Bertie Portal. We’ve followed his career, his row across the Atlantic and now his run across the Sahara. It’s day 4 of the Marathon des Sables and Bertie’s doing an amazing job.

The temperatures have been averaging in the 40′s and have reached up to 50 degrees celsius, which makes it approximately 120 fahrenheit on an average day. The run is broken up into seven stages and so far Bertie has battled through the following distances:

Stage 1 – 34 km
Stage 2 – 41 km
Stage 3 – 37.5 km

Bertie is prolly running stage 4 as you read this, which should be the half-way point with 3 stages left to complete.

We have no doubt that Bertie will finish his run through the Sahara, but all y’all can make it easier for him to keep grinding away hour after hour. All you have to do is send Bert an email to keep his spirits up! He’s let us know in the past, that it was messages sent to him by people like you, that perked him up when he was the most discouraged on his row across the Atlantic. So, don’t be shy and let Bertie know you’re thinking of him.

Make sure you click on “Numéro de dossard” and scroll down to “775 Portal, Bertie” when the drop box appears. It’s the only way to make sure Bert gets the email. For the people that do send Bertie an email of encouragement, we’ll be entering you into a drawing to win an autographed photo of Steve. We’re running on the honour system, so just contact us at smadmin@simplymoyer.com and let us know you sent Bertie an appreciative email.

IF YOU NEED A TRANSLATION, CLICK ON THE PIC.

We’ll let you know when Bert finishes his trek but, don’t wait for us to update you on a regular basis. You can easily keep track of Bertie during the Marathon des Sable on his FaceBook page – Bertie Portal: Blazing a Trail.

While Bertie suffers through the heat and possible dehydration common to these events, you can do your part by donating to the charity he’s running for: Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity. No matter the amount, it’s never too little.

Do you want to own me? Send an email to Bertie and maybe you will.

Expressions by Stephen Moyer – Priceless!

It’s just a short paparazzi video of Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin taken on February 2nd, while on the red carpet at Elton John’s Oscar Party. It’s worth the watch though, as Steve’s reaction at the end of the video is priceless.

New True Blood Footage

The good news: HBO aired a Spring Preview Promo clip which included some new footage of True Blood prior to the season four premiere of Game of Thrones. The bad news: very little footage of Bill. But it’s early, and we’ll take what we can get. Check out the Spring Preview clip below for new shots of Bill, Sookie, and several other of Bon Temps’ finest citizens. Although waiting sucks, we’re now on the official countdown to season seven!

Stephen Moyer at Disneyland

It looks like Steve spent the day at Disneyland and a lucky fan was there to capture the occasion. And from her instagram caption, she seemed to be pretty damned excited by the occasion. But then again, who wouldn’t be?

Steve wasn’t there alone, as the same fan caught a picture of herself with Chris Bauer. And they said that Steve took the picture. How cool is that? Hope they’ve all had a fun day!
