TRUE BLOOD takes flight from the razor's edge between camp and classic. Creator Alan Ball's vampire drama is Southern Gothic gone wild, feeding on the popular obsession with the supernatural while creating its own rich world through a knowing, seductive concoction of sex, violence and soap opera. Michelle Forbes' brilliant performance as Maryann Forrester is the magnetic center of an audacious and orgiastic season that not only unleashes the ids in its audience, but also asks penetrating questions about what it is to be human - to desire, to discriminate and to dig deep into the delights of television.
