Format: DVD
Picking up events three weeks after the end of Season 1, the second season of True Blood opens with people trying to get back to normal life in Bon Temps, Louisiana, following the resolution of the serial killer problem. For the staff and regulars at Merlotte's this is complicated by the disappearance of their cook, Lafayette, under strange circumstances. Meanwhile, Jason Stackhouse has found religion and is being drawn into the orbit of the Fellowship of the Sun, an anti-vampire fundamentalist group, whilst Sookie and Bill's relationship continues to develop. The disappearance of Godric, the vampire sherrif of Texas, has Eric calling on Sookie and Bill's aid to help find him, meaning they are out of town when newcomer Maryann begins to have a very odd influence on the people of the town. Oh yes, and Bill also has a freshly-risen vampire protege, Jessica, to deal with.

True Blood's second season hits the ground running with a number of complex storylines in progress or just getting underway. As a result the second season has less of an introductory feel than the first, and cuts to the chase much more quickly. There's less of Sookie changing her mind every five minutes about whether she wants to be with Bill or not and more focus on more dynamic storylines, which is what the series needed after the first season, which got bogged down a few times.

The fact that Sookie and Bill are now together and that's pretty much it (despite a couple of curveballs sent towards the relationship late in the season) results in Anna Paquin raising her game notably. Whilst always decent in the role of Sookie, the character's frequent changes in attitude in Season 1 gave the impression of leaving her unsure about how to play the character.

After the first series of True Blood I was desperate to see what Alan Ball and co would do with the next book. Based loosely on the second "Sookie Stackhouse" novel, this series as compared with the previous is a lot slicker, sexier and character based. The relationship of Sookie and Bill develops, we get glimpses of the vampire world outside of Bon Temps, new characters such as Jessica are developed and old characters such as Tara and Sam are shown in a different light to the first series.

Overall, this is an excellent drama/thriller/horror series which gives a tired format (i.e Vampires in a remote town) a new spin. There are a few mediocre episodes, however, when this series is good, it is good! It does feel like "Buffy" from time to time but True Blood feels like it is more for young adults and adults rather than teens. It will be very interesting to see what happens next series. Definitely worth getting in to.

I think the person who gave this only 1 star is talking out of their hat!! Season 2 has been great, particularly with the characters of Eric and Pam and Jessica getting more screen time. A great 2nd season, my only criticism would be that the Maryann storyline took up too much time and I wanted to see even more Eric!! Looking forward to Season 3!

Even though there have been 4 seasons, I only tend to watch when they're released on box set, so I can watch multiple episodes. I'm so far behind everybody else, but I may as well review this (try to) anyway.

I gave my own opinion on what I believe a true vampire should be in the season one review. So don't need to touch on that, apart from mentioning that this series seems to remain faithful as to the nature of the creatures.

I remember reading the negative reviews from S1 and chuckling at the remarks regarding too much sex. Well I can only assume a portion of those critics, if they persevered, may have had a coronary during this season. Despite Jason Stackhouse getting far less 'action' in that department, it seems everyone else took advantage of that. And how! The majority of the cast at some stage had a great deal of sexy time. This was mainly due to the fleshing out of the maenad plot, played by Michelle Forbes (looking very different from those Kalifornia days), as Maryann Forrester. A maenad being a female worshipper of a chaotic Greek god. Who slowly took advantage of a vulnerable Tera, then ingratiated herself with the rest of the town.

Like season one, there are varying plot arcs that cross paths with one another. The maenad's pursuit of Sam may be considered the main plot line for season 2, as Maryann's orgy-riddled goal of shape-shifter sacrificial tomfoolery plays out. Though I'm guessing, ultimately, it may be the developing triangle between Sookie, Bill and Erik that plays a bigger role in latter seasons.

I felt that the plot was much more focused this time around than in the somewhat meandering first season.

Season 2 of True Blood is an improvement, both for the show and for the DVD contents.

Special Features list:

True Blood Season 2 Disc 1
- Audio Commentaries:
Episode 2 - Nelsan Ellis and Michael Lehmann - **** Unquestionably, Nelsan is an amazing actor, and it is very interesting to get his point of view. During this commentary we get a great insight to the relationship between Lafayette and Eric, and how Nelsan acted out the dungeon scenes.

True Blood Season 2 Disc 2

True Blood Season 2 Disc 3
- Audio Commentaries:
Episode 7 - Raelle Tucker and Michael Ruscio - **** Enjoyable commentary throughout. Raelle and Michael make a very good commentating couple.

True Blood Season 2 Disc 4
- Audio Commentaries:
Episode 8 - Stephen Moyer, Alexander Skarsgard and John Dahl - ***** By far the best commentary, in my opinion. Alexander and Stephen make a very funny commentating couple and I am looking forward to more commentaries from these two together! John Dahl complements them perfectly.
Episode 10 - Ryan Kwanten and Sam Trammell - **** First time for me listening to Ryan's real accent, quite a surprise. Ryan and Sam do a great job together.

True Blood Season 2 Disc 5
- The Fellowship of the Sun: Reflections of Light. (Rev. S. Newlin and his wife share their views on marriage, eternal life and more)

- Audio Commentaries:
Episode 11 - Rutina Wesley, Alan Ball and Daniel Minahan - **** It is always a pleasure to hear Alan's commentary. Loved the insight on the scenes with Tara and her mother.
