Boring and scattered story, some secondary intriguing characters, fangtastic Jessica and wicked Jason
14 June 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Bad Blood ? Bad premiere ! I gave up on True Blood during season 1 and didn't even watch its 9th episode, Plaisir D'Amour. Even if I found Jason's story interesting the rest quickly became painful to watch. So I skipped the whole second season and only decided to give the third a chance because I read the show had improved. Far from it because when Strange Blood, the pilot, was captivating and intriguing this episode was dead boring most of the time. It's like nothing happened when I was expecting a fierce battle between vampires and werewolves. Moreover too many arcs were covered and I can't imagine enduring other episodes just to know more about Jason or if Sookie will ever marry Bill. Her investigation was just pointless and she looked like a brainless Alice lost in Fangland. Anna Paquin's acting is really bad at times and I really miss the days when I used to have a crush on her after X-Men.

As for the whole V traffic I couldn't care less about it. How can you be so creativeless ? It's like if the writers fed their ideas from an empty body, completely drained of its vital fluids. I also had to meet the Queen for the first time and her appearance wasn't surprising at all. The actress playing her is not special enough and I think she lacks charisma. However Eric was more convincing and even if his sex slave reminded me of the pilot I think that character has potential. But his boss doesn't stand a chance against Kerrigan ! It leads us to Jessica Hamby, Bill's female vampire. Deborah Ann Woll is definitely irresistible and her pure beauty perfectly balances the filthiness of her character. She reminded me of the young girl in Interview with the Vampire who didn't know how to behave after she was turned into a vampire. Watching her first steps in the other world could definitely be entertaining and exciting.

Last but not least what saved Bad Blood from being rotten is Jason and his neverending issues. Some of her scenes were quite funny and I still remember some of their dialogs. Will it turn you on or off ? Well my advice is to find it by yourself because I'm just a mere mortal reviewer and even if I don't really recommend it there're still a few things in True Blood that deserves your attention.
