From Amazon.co.uk

A show that continues to get better and better, True Blood recovered quickly from a divisive first episode or two to evolve into one of the best television series currently running in the US. Season two? It’s gone and made it even better.

The series as a whole is based on the Southern Vampire Mysteries novels by Charlaine Harris, but they’ve been weaved into television gold by Alan Ball. Ball, previously responsible for Six Feet Under, sets True Blood in a world where vampires are gradually becoming more and more accepted. Living side by side with humans, it’s inevitably not the easiest of worlds, but the scenario offers enough threads for some riveting viewing.

Season two of True Blood in particular is superb. It blends together the blood, sex and mystery that made the show so popular in the first place, but also moves the collection of characters into even more dangerous and edgy situations. Plus, there’s the small matter of an underlying narrative that builds to a terrific finish.

To say much more would be to spoil things, and True Blood is one show that absolutely shouldn’t be spoiled. Instead, it should be savoured, and with that in mind, this terrific second season boxset is a genuine must. --Jon Foster

Product Description

The biggest TV phenomenon of last year is back with a bite.

Welcome back to Bon Temps, home to mystery, Southern sensuality and dark secrets. For Sookie Stackhouse, life is more dangerous than ever after she and Bill become more deeply involved. Meanwhile, Tara finds herself under a lover’s spell. Sam puts his trust in an unlikely ally. Jason becomes involved with an anti-vampire sect. Eric becomes interested in Sookie after he recruits her to investigate the disappearance of his 2,000-year-old maker. And Maryann is revealed to possess a power that can control almost everyone in town. Then, after making a shocking discovery, Sookie, Bill and Sam must form the last line of defense against a diabolical plan that raises this award-winning series to bloody new heights.

Clothes fall to the floor almost as often as blood spatters the walls in this show that blends supernatural horror, sex, and mystery, with just a little bit of social commentary thrown in for good measure.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid continuation of the series 30 Sep 2009
By A. Whitehead TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good 26 Oct 2009
By J. Ball
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars RE: Great Second Season! 17 Jan 2010
By Caro
Format:DVD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fangbloodytastic! 7 Mar 2010
Format:DVD
True Blood just keeps getting better and better. Awesome storyline running through the entire series that intertwines with others. new and fascinating light shed on all the existing characters while introducing other intriguing characters to the plot.

Watched the entire season 2 online (i know that's naughty) in two days and I am so pre-ordering the DVDs as could watch it again and again.

TV show of the decade.

This is probably my favourite series of True Blood. I have loved them all, however this is when Sookie was still pretty innocent but the show took a more darker turn. It doesn't exactly follow the book, but all the characters and (a rather loose base of the) plot are there. The characters have developed into full stories by this point and it shows vampires to have a sense of humour which is a lot of fun. Additionally it begins to give a look at how the church and politicians are reacting to the vamps coming out of the coffin. More sex, more gore and more drama. 5 Stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first series 7 Dec 2010
Format:DVD
I absolutely adored the first series of True Blood. It was officially my New Favourite US Import, and while I was waiting for the second series I went out and read all nine True Blood novels by Charlaine Harris. Maybe that was where things started to go wrong. I thought the structure of the books was excellent: basically a series of supernatural detective novels, Sookie Stackhouse is firmly at the centre of each story, with boyfriends coming and going, and Sookie's subjective experience of events providing a moral heart. Leaving aside the fact that the second series departs significantly from the books (and of course it can't be expected to slavishly follow the novels' plot lines), the split storyline feels jumbled and disconnected. There seemed to be a need to give everyone in the large ensemble cast something to "do". Most significantly for me, as much as I love Bill Compton as a character, the this series seems to need him to be a "hero", perhaps because a female heroine isn't considered enough to carry the show - unlike the books. This also compromises his cool, detached (and very sexy) character, and Stephen Moyer's performances in the this second series are often very human (stressed, love-sick, anxious, vulnerable). Bring back the aloof and mysterious vampire of the first season!

Having said all this, the series is very entertaining and blackly funny, with high production values and engaging characters. If you enjoyed the first season you will enjoy the second, but I just wish I could say to the programme-makers: don't try to work out what you think people want from this show, but rather stick to the core ideas of the books, with Sookie Stackhouse at the heart of things.
