Suspension of disbelief

Eric's cubby is the most unbelievable thing in the Vampires and Witches show. How could they have possibly built that thing, in under a year, without completely demolishing the house first? Concrete walls, floors and ceiling, entered through a small hole, in a house with no basement on presumably-swampy land.

Even "glamoured" contractors can't be that good.

This is where I draw the line. Right here.

    Is this a True Blood thing? Which episode should I *legally obtain from this here internet* to figure out what I should be puzzled over?

  2. Couldn't they have jacked the house up, maybe moved it over to one side, put in the den, then just plop the house back down over it and hook everything up? And you of all people should know that technical details would be trivial compared to the permits he would have had to obtain. That alone should have taken years.

    Wait a minute. with all the stupid that's gone on in that show. A simple matter of how they built a cubby gets you fired up? You've been doing renovations too long.

    Maybe Eric gained some sort of mystical concrete powers at the end of last season?

    A wizard did it.

    I don't watch the show myself, but my wife does, and comments as follows:

    Nah. That's nothing. More unbelievable is that they managed to renovate completely the two-storied old mansion next door from top to bottom in less than a year. In Bumfuck, Louisiana. Come on.

      I'm thinking about this very thing (and the cubby) this morning then while catching up on my feedreader this entry pops up. Between renovating the two POS houses in Bon Temps there would have had to been a small army of contractors on site 24x7 for a year. And nobody on Bill's side noticed the major below-grade concrete pour right next door?

    Well, may be they built the entire underground thing outside the house on the side and only the entrance is inside.

    Glitch in the matrix.

    It's more simple than that. The house is a shapeshifter.
