Want to be grossed out? Want to laugh out loud? Want to be engrossed by fantastical characters with their tongue's stuck firmly in their cheek? If so, then True Blood is for you. Vampires, Werewolves, Faeries... it's all ridiculous, in the best possible way.
I've watched all the episodes, which doesn't seem to be a prerequisite for some folk reviewing this show. I mean who reads 20 pages of a 200 page book and then reviews it? The show changes throughout the seasons, and season 6 is must-watch-TV, and has literally brought the show back to life. Season 7 can't come fast enough, that was a decent cliffhanger.
OMG this show is by far the worst ive ever seen in my life !! 2 times i start watching and never get past season 1 episode 8 :D i mean what the hell!! fake acting ,bad music and worst screenplay eveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer !!!
the episodes i watched i was LOLing the whole time ! ! and Sookie ?? seriously what kind of a name is that ?! hahahaha and even better stackhouse xD xD
is there anyone like me here or ya'll fangbangers :D :P
Season 6 ... nothing makes sense, people keep making decisions with no reasoning behind it. Starts right away with writers deciding everyone will hate/fear bill from 1st second of season because he is supposedly super evil now no matter what he does/says and just goes downhill from there especially for sookie character. I didn't watch all episodes yet, but I hope they get better. Not saying it's all bad just a few decisions came off totally fake imo - otherwise the camp part of story/main plot I like.
I haven't watched the entire series: I'm only on the 4th Season. I've got nothing but admiration on this series playing against social norms. It constantly plays upon the morality of what it means to be human. The Vampires are given a choice: "Main Stream" or stand out. What is to be expected is that, much like life, the choice is not so black and white. Lines must be crossed in order to preserve either their own lives or the lives of the people close to them. It's a very dark take on the general aspects of would give this show a 10 rating, but the plot which starts out wide, complicated, and nail biting slows down drastically.
The first season blows open Sookie's peaceful, serene, southern life. Introducing Vampires, Murderers, Vampire Haters/Lovers, Voodoo, Shapeshifters and of course the wonderful Greek Mythos. Come the second season, Sookie has begun a strong, outspoken, vocal character not afraid to stand up to vampires.
@dougretter7 | Your post amuses me thoroughly. If you actually read between the lines of the entire "Christian" aspects of the show: The Church of Light. They are not representing Christian's as whole: period. They are the crazy fanatics; example would be Westboro Baptist Church. You must be Christian as your back goes up immediately in this case. The point of the contrast between the normal Christians "Hoyt" and "Sookie" is that nothing is EVER simple. They are perceived as 'stupid' in the show because they are meant to be compared with Vampires who are hundreds to thousands of years old: if you tried to match wits with anything that lived for thousands of years you'd look totally ignorant too.
I love True Blood when it started. The first season followed the books and hooked a lot of Charlaine Harris fans. Every season seemed to stray farther and farther from the books and now it is just ridiculous. Where has all the good television gone?
I Had little to no interest in the vampire craze that was sweeping up this country, but gave it a chance, and it officially sunk it's teeth into me! Excellent cast that you end up caring about, high production value, and an entertaining take on vampire / werewolf lore. People complain about profanity and some pretty hot soft core scenes, but isn't that the point of HBO?? My only gripe is a common one; 1st season = 9.5, 2nd season = 10, 3rd Season 8.5, 4th season = 6.5, etc .... Are they running out of material? are they running short on ideas and uses for the characters? I'm not sure, but the show is steadily losing steam, and I hope they regain stability this upcoming season.
Things started out pretty reasonable and interesting; enough that I watched into four seasons. Good girl Sookie hooks up with a good vampire, undying love, faithful to each other; a decent love story with unusual problems. By Season 4 she's turned into a whore and he's an evil opportunistic "good" guy. Jessica and Hoyt, young kids deeply in love, working hard to make something good out of their situation; now she's a whore sleeping with Hoyt's best friend. Everyone is screwing everyone, what the heck, vampires using humans as tools and disposable sex objects, no real values anywhere; just people using people. No one, at any social level appears to possess any character or decency that doesn't at some place wallor into animalistic sex or treachery. If you removed the "F" word, you would have shortened the series by 2 hours. Someone would have to point out to me anything virtuous in the storyline. The whole thing is sick.
When it began, I would have given this a decent rating; however, this entire series has descended into one putrid morass of sex, drugs, lying, cheating, group sex, betrayal, blood and guts, foul language, and ruined, broken people. Did I miss anythingoh yeah, and mocking people of faith, specifically Christians, who are portrayed as moronic, hypocritical buffoons. What started out fairly decent turned into a piece of crap. I refuse to watch the rest.
I just got into watching true blood . I was so hooked on it. I started watching the first episode and couldn't stop watching it . I watch it from beginning to the last episode in 3 days. I didn't like how episode 5 went. I can't wait till season 6 comes I just hope it's alot better than the last one. Does anyone know when session 6 comes out? I love this show. Iam a true blood fan all the way
At first I thought, meh, another vampire show, but I was surprised that the first two episodes got me so hooked that I had to know what goes next. It has a different perspective, it doesn't necessarily has new story lines, nor great continuity but it's addicting and it's good at cliffhangers. Also, I live Sookie.
True blood defines how vampires are supposed to be, gore, violent and lack of content for humanity unlike the mushy stereotypes of other vampire shows. The earlier seasons 1-3 was great and among the best of but season 4 and 5 is a bit letdown but i hope it the new show runner returns it to its glory days.
My favourite characters are Eric, Jessica and Jason.
I am really disappointed with Season 5. Jason is suppoed to be a Werepanther, Tera does Not become a vampire, because later in one of the books she is pregnant. Can't be pregnant if you're dead. Just the entire seaso is wrong. Now they have Jason with some kind of psychological problem? This is not how I imagined Season 5. I Love True Blood, I always will, bu you guys have to do something.
I liked how the first couple of seasons followed the books in a general way... Sorta anyway... But these later seasons have sorta spun off track in a really unexpected way. Not bad, but just surprising.
I loved this show. But I do admit, this season wasn't one of the best. It was a little boring at times, but when it did get interesting, it kept my on the edge of my seat. I still love the show regardless!
I really liked this season. At first, during the first 6 episodes, I really didn't know where they were going though in my opinion the plot has been more interesting this year. Religion and racism have been treated in a very fun -yet kinda deep way.
I'm also a little tired of the Sookie-Bill-Eric trifecta, so that last scene with Billith was the surprise I needed. I really want to see what's next...
Tara and Pam together is priceless!!
I confess I enjoyed a lot last season, and I admit it was the worst, but Antonia Gaviln de Logroo and the Inquisition story was great comedy ;)
This show has its flaws, and it's true the writing has it's WTF moments. But it's soooo much fun!!
I'm not sure why there are so many BLIND fans of this show? Yes, the sex and violence has its appeal as the reputation of HBO is known for, but the writing on this show is absolutely dreadful. I liked some of the characters from the previous seasons, so i tried to let the poor writing slide and be entertained, but I found myself rolling my eyes more times that enjoying the show. I have a bunch of friends who admit this season wasn't good, but they will watch regardless. I wish people would be more honest with their reviews because praising this show only means you'll get more of the same garbage from the writers. I was really disappointed with this season, and I'll nly give them two episodes next season before I bail for good.
