Season 2
10 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

How does such a brilliantly executed/written show devolve into a massive pile of silly trash within 3 episodes?? True Blood season 2 picks up right were it left off with resident mind-reader, Sookie Stackhouse, and the citizens of Bon Temps reeling from the aftermath of a serial killer. This season, Bill has a new vampire protégé in Jessica, Eric's infatuation with Sookie explodes into full bore obsession while looking for his "maker", Godric, Lafayette gets scared straight(ha, not literally)and Jason Stackhouse joins a crazed group of Christians who look to trigger a holy war against the undead….whew. So far so good, right? Oh, yeah. I forgot to mention Mary Anne, the god-summoning- monster-witch. As far as I'm concerned her inclusion into the series almost "sucked" all that IS great with the show out in one fell swoop. Her "power" is making people party so hard they strip and fornicate all for the purpose of resurrecting an ancient deity. That's it. We are treated to hours upon hours of excellent writing, acting and suspense all to watch it fizzle out in a matter of seconds? That was also a problem with season 1, great build with a poor finish. With that off my chest, True Blood is still one of the best shows on TV... I just hope one day it will be considered TRUE-ly great.
