Thanks for the links, Linda! I still hope we get news about Midnight, Texas soon. The Gifted got renewed and so did Timeless, so maybe we'll get lucky again.

I understand what you mean about Manfred and Fiji, Linda. I just meant that since both their powers involve communicating with the dead, they may be a bit too similar. I like a couple that has commonalities but also differences where they complement each other and provide something the other doesn't have. So do you really prefer Manfred with Olivia? Because it seemed like you were about to say Fiji. But yeah, that's the reason I prefer Manfred with Olivia, because they have different personalities and they clash. There's a lot of chemistry there and a lot of spark to their scenes. And you're right, the Fiji/Bobo thing does seem more like it's the main love story on the show to be honest. A lot more so than the whole Creek thing.

Thanks for the pic, Arinna! It's a bit too big, so I put it in spoiler tags.

Manfred and his two ladies, huh?

I definitely get what you mean Alex, sometimes opposites attract and often a relationship between 2 very different people can be beneficial in the sense that they should be able to complement each other. And sometimes relationships between 2 people who have a lot in common can also be equally beneficial, it really just depends.

But even if NBC renews MT for a second season, the chances of Manfred breaking up with Creek and hooking up with either Olivia or Fiji is very slim, since Olivia has already married Lem and Fiji is now officially dating Bobo. Although I would be open to the idea of Manfred dumping Creek for a new girl...in the original novels, Manfred had actually dated a different girl and Creek was originally just a minor character who only appeared in the first book. Why couldn't the producers of the series just follow the damn book?

Yeah, I get what you're saying, Linda. So I guess Manfred could go with either character, but I just never saw any spark between him and Fiji, probably because she was more concerned with other things, and with Bobo. Yeah, Olivia is with Lem, but I did see genuine sparks with her and Manfred, so we'll have to wait and see.

Yes, that's also true. The damn books are canon and they'll probably wanna keep the couples the way they are. However, I'd like to mention that the show is based on the Charlaine Harris novels, and she's the writer of the Southern Vampire Mysteries that True Blood was based on. And Arinna can tell you that True Blood didn't exactly stick with the established couples either, so perhaps there's a chance, who knows? And you're right, if Creek is only a minor character in the books there's no reason to keep her around on the show.

Alex:

Yes I know MT is based on novels written by the same author who wrote the 'True Blood' novels and yes I'm also aware that the True Blood TV series also changed a lot of things that were different to the novels. I've read the original book that True Blood was based on and it annoys me so much that they had changed so many things in the series. I have the same feeling about the MT series straying too far away from the original novels, especially about Creek's character, she's so annoying and pointless in the series and have absolutely no chemistry with Francois whatsoever, the producers of the series should've just remained faithful to the books and made her a minor character like in the books. And I agree, I also saw some sexual tension and chemistry between Manfred and Olivia...even though I also like Manfred with Fiji, but as I mentioned before, I still prefer Fiji with Bobo more, so yeah at the end of the day I'm leaning more towards Manfred & Olivia also

Anyway I don't remember if this has been posted here before but I love this pic of Francois with Arielle Kebbel (Olivia) this was taken last September when they were promoting MT in Paris

Have you watched something new with him, Jade? Or you only miss him as Cesare? I for sure miss him as my Cesare.

Hi, Jade! Did you ever see Francois in Midnight, Texas?

Hi, Linda! I totally understand what it feels like to watch Hollywood screw up the source material in TV and movies, especially when you're a fan. So what changes did the show make to the story that you didn't like?

Yes, I also find it annoying that Creek isn't that important in the books but they make her Manfred's main love interest on the show. But maybe she's just around for that first season and they'll do something different with Manfred later.

Wow, so now you're on board with me when it comes to Manfred and Olivia? Nice. And thanks for that pic of Francois and Arielle! I hope we hear something soon because I'd love to see more Manfred/Olivia scenes. But that would mean breaking up Olivia and Lem. That'll be interesting since he's a vampire.
