I've just finished watching the S3 box set, having studiously avoided all spoilers since last year. There were so many cliffhangers at the end that I started searching round for that missing extra disk. Not much gets resolved and a wait of a year for the next installment has made me distinctly grumpy.

I think I may prefer that the series moves too fast than subject us to the tiresome Tara/Mother soap that made the latter half of Series 1 so tedious, but there was so much happening in S3 that you didn't have time to register one thing before the next hit you. I also think that Sam's development as part nice guy part psychopath is too much - he is one of the moral compasses of the show, the others being Bill and Sookie and all three went haywire this season, which is leading us dangerously near to "so what"

And the Timotei advert fey - in Sookie's words "That is so lame". I've read the books and wondered how they were going to do it, appreciate its difficult but if anyone can make it convincing it would be Alan Ball. Sadly it appears to be impossible to do.

Having said all that, I still really enjoyed it - Alcide Hervaux is a great new character, I loved the werewolves and I adore Pam - who got more screen time this year.

**Update** - I've just watched the final season - Season 7 - it was terrible. If you're considering starting on "True Blood" - its a great ride. But if you're someone who needs a good ending to a 7 year series then think hard before you go there.

Following the hedonistic reign of terror of the redoubtable Maryann, the residents of Bon Temps are once again trying to pull their lives back together. For Sookie Stackhouse, events are complicated by the disappearance of her vampire lover Bill Compton, the emergence of a bunch of werewolves on the scene and the machinations of the vampire King of Mississippi. Meanwhile, Sookie's brother Jason pursues a new career in law-enforcement, Sam Merlott tracks down his real parents and Jessica, now broken up with Hoyt, embraces her vampire side more freely. Meanwhile (again), Lafayette gets a boyfriend called Jesus (True Blood? Controversial? Never!) and there are some meth-dealing hicks around causing mischief. And there's this werewolf called Alcide who fancies Sookie and spends a fair bit of time with his shirt off. And Tara gets emotionally abused (yet again) by Thomas Cromwell from The Tudors. And a whole ton of other stuff happened which I'm forgetting right now.

True Blood has always been a nutty, camp, somewhat trashy but always resolutely entertaining show, but its third season is nothing less than a sustained, full-scale assault on the viewer's senses and sanity. Learning from the pacing problems in Season 2 (where the latter part of the season degenerated into a tiresome parade of filler orgy scenes for no discernible plot reason), Alan Ball has massively overcompensated, packing every single instant of this season with surprising plot revelations, new characters, surprise reappearances of old characters (including dead ones), new ideas, new races, new concepts and, indeed, the kitchen sink. It's certainly not a dull season, but it is one that is overloaded to the point of near-incoherence.

You should only really get this box set if you've watched season 2 & 1, it's more of the same but in this case it's a good thing. In this season the 'Weres' are introduced along with the fairy 'Claudine' really worth a watch.

I'm not a massive fan of vampire stories on screen and I haven't read the books upon which the series is based.

But I don't think that really matters. It is just intreguing to have a TV series based upon the premise that Vampires are real and want to integrate into society like any other ethnic minority. So if you are an adult who are looking for a TV series to get on boxset and would like to see extreme adult themes explored then this is the one series that must be on your list.

This is the third series of True Blood and it was the series that I started watching first. After watching it, I watched the first two series because I wanted to see the backstory, but take it from me. The third series is the best TV series ever. It is not perfect, just beautifully flawed and hilarious. Jammed packed with interesting characters, performances that evoke strong feelings within you, whether positive or negative. Dialogue moving from the sublime to the ridiculous. But most of all, its so very entertaining.

Favorite Character.

Bill Compton. The brooding, noble gentleman cruelly cursed with immortality. Beautifully judged by the outstanding Stephen Moyer.

Honorable Mention. The maniacal King of Mississippi, Russel Edgington. Magnetic and hilariously over the top performance from Denis O'Hare. [Reminicient of Gary Oldman in Leon - The Director's Cut [Blu-ray]

That is not to say that there aren't other superb performances in the show. It takes a certain amount of skill to make stupidity and naivety look natural and every actor in the show plays that role well. Especially Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten).
