What we find most interesting about these commentaries; is the fact that there are no commentaries for the final two episodes. Hmmm…could it be they have no words for how the season ended?
What about the fact that Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton) will be commenting on Episode 2 “You Smell Like Dinner” - in which Eric loses his memory? We would find it more interesting to find out how Alex felt about the scene where the spell is cast.
We can’t wait (of course) to find out Alex’s thoughts on drunken Eric! He is commenting on Episode 4 “I’m Alive And On Fire”! We’re curious to find out how warm the water was…KROKODILLER!!
Raelle Tucker will be giving insight to Episode 6 “I Wish I Was The Moon” – a favorite episode with Eric and Sookie lovers. Wonder what she’ll say?
Overall, Blu-Ray Definition.com gave True Blood Season 4′s Blu-Ray – 4 stars!
