What happened?
13 August 2013 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

OK So the first Season of True Blood I give it 10, it was great the way it was filmed and the storyline, The show itself had great potential and was getting better and better as the season progressed. I was left Wanting more. Season 2 was OK i give it a 8.5 just because the whole maenad thing was kinda stupid. Season 3 though was by far my favorite, because the werewolves finally came to break havoc on True Blood. The only thing that was kinda stupid was the whole redneck family were-panthers. but other then that i give that season and 9.2 it could have been a 10 but the whole were panther thing was stupid. Season 4 i give an 8.2 for the sole purpose that Sookie was now more intune with her fairy powers. Season 5 i give it an 8 because there was no true villain, other then the Vampires in general. Season 6 started OK but it went to a shithole. The direction the filming it seems like it was done by amateurs. Especially Season 6 episode 9, the parts where the cast was remembering Terry Bellefleur, they could have used scenes of season 1 and make new ones but very minimal. This season is interesting but by far the worst in terms of filming and direction goes. my rating for season 6 is a 6.8 The budget looks like crap. seems like a movie for the scifi channel. Lets Hope Alan Ball comes back to make this show better!
