Series taking a header into the ground
19 August 2014 | by trainspottingSee all my reviews

I doubt that I have watched a series that has gone from what I would consider a very good show in the first 3 years. A rating of 75 to 82 out of 100 for the first three seasons. To 30 to 50 out of a 100 for the last 3 seasons. This last season is especially slow, meaningless and horrible.

What happened did they kill off the writers from the first 3 seasons or did the writers see that this series was dying the "True Death" and leave.

I actually do not care any longer about Sookie, Bill, Eric or the rest of the cast of characters especially Tara and her moronic mother.

And really could you stop the CRYING. Every scene one weak ass character after another breaks out in tears. If you had a drinking game where every audience member had to take a shot when someone broke out in tears you would find over half the audience dead from alcohol poisoning before the show ended.

Truly sad to see a show with such promise hang on way to long and end this way.
