True Blood (2008)
True Blood Season 5
The writers really messed it up good this year.
I mean look at Dexter in comparison - they don't follow the books on Dexter but it is well written with a concise storyline. They went their own direction but always kept Dexter the central character and more importantly they kept to the principles of the story.
They didn't do that in TB. Sookie is not the central character as she is in the books. This year they had what seemed like 20 story lines. The story lines didn't mesh together and they were not all united by the main character. Can you imagine on Dexter if they did a storyline on Masuka's sexual perversion that Dexter knows nothing about? It wouldn't make sense and people would quit watching.
And even take Six Feet Under as another example - the entire show revolved around the one family sure they ran out of stuff to do at the end but they had a good run The writers messed up on TB by adding in storyline that didn't revolve around the main character.
TB Season 1 was awesome they stuck to the plot in the book added a little extra to spice it up . Even last season's story somewhat followed the book with improvements.
Season 5 is by far the worst season. There were too many story lines. The story lines didn't connect. A big part of book 5 was the fight to be the pack leader of the Werewolves which seemed out of place this season since they didn't tie it into Sookie at all. If Sookie is done interacting with the Werewolves then write them out!
I think TB is over. If everyone doesn't hate it this year I think next years abomination will be hated. It will only get worse. I think Alan Ball left because he knows there is no salvaging it and he wants to rremove himself so he can say he left before it went to crap.
