In Bon Temps, everyone has something to hide. But when new threats emerge, no one can conceal the secrets of their past.
After Sookie discovers that Bill has been kidnapped, she heads to Mississippi where she becomes entangled in a world ruled by a pack of vicious werewolves and the powerful Vampire King, Russell Edgington. There, her powers resurface and she learns that Bill may not be trusted. Eric is also drawn to the King’s domain to settle an old score; Tara dives deep into turmoil; Jason falls for a mysterious woman; Lafayette can’t avoid love or demons; Jessica sharpens her vampire skills; and Sam uncovers the truth about his birth family. It all leads up to the revelation of the series... Sookie’s true identity.

The 12 episodes composing True Blood - Season 3 are either the best yet or the most ridiculous, depending on one's opinion of the increasing number of monsters entering the scene. As last season saw an onslaught of pagan and ancient Greek-derived "supernaturals", as they are called by Bon Temps' citizens, this season welcomes everything from werewolves to vampire royalty to that surprise-being that Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) finally discovers she shares genes with. While the first two seasons centered on the spicy love affair between Sookie and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), this season branches out once again from the vampire-human cultural blender. From the first episode, "Bad Blood", when Bill is whisked off to meet the King of Mississippi, Russell Edgington (Denis O'Hare), whose villainous scheme will inform all ensuing episodes, one gets less of Sookie and Bill, and more of everything else.
For example, Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) reveals himself this time around, starting in the episodes "Beautifully Broken" and "It Hurts Me Too", in which he tracks down members of his past and in turn meets some new family, like his mischievous brother, Tommy Mickens (Marshall Allman). Following up on Eggs's death at the end of season two, Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) and Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) have multiple police dramas, especially in later episodes like "I Smell a Rat" and "Fresh Blood". This season, too, presents some of life's greatest challenges to Tara Thornton (Rutina Wesley), as if she hadn't suffered enough after her new love Eggs was shot. Hoyt (Jim Parrack) and Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll), as a foil couple to Sookie and Bill's vampire-human coupling, have enormous hurdles to jump over simply to continue dating. While all of these dramas make the characters in Bon Temps come alive like never before, the silliest of the plots continues on, unfortunately, as Queen Sophie-Anne Leclerq (Evan Rachel Wood) has to battle King Edgington for Vamp-Blood sales territory. On the up side of that chess-game narrative, Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård) and his femme fatale, Pam De Beaufort (Kristin Bauer), play much larger roles this season, and in the finale, "Evil Is Going On", Eric not only discovers his deep past history but struggles through his rockiest present dangers thus far.
Interestingly, though Sookie is still the protagonist, True Blood appears to be shifting to a wider view, emphasizing the overall community and the effects supernatural warfare has on Bon Temps collectively. Lafayette Reynolds (Nelsan Ellis), still one of the most charming characters, discovers more about his past, thanks to nurse Jesus Velasquez (Kevin Alejandro), and Jason too discovers a new calling, thanks to Crystal Norris (Lindsay Pulsipher). If anything, this season of past recollections and the realizations of future callings will allow for this excellent series to carry on into infinity, as magical creatures continue to grace this setting enriched with full-fledged characters. Vampires were, as the cast confirms this time around, only the beginning. --Trinie DaltonSee all Product Description

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.
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.Read more ›
If you're offended by gratuitous sex, male and female nudity, surreal and bloody violence and bad language then this isn't for you.
On the plus side you get to see Eric's bum and a delicious half full frontal of him in the first episode.
Denis O Hare/russell edgington stole the show, it's worth buying just for his television rant. His performance as a cracked out Roy Orbison in the werewolf bar is just brilliant. Not to mention the little stripper girl snack in the limo..Nine Crimes is one of the best episodes in the season.
Lorena/Mario Klaveno was electrifying and utterly over the top. The much debated sex scene isn't as bad as everyone says, it's more surreal than horrifying. The torture scene is worse in my opinion.
Talbot and Eric getting jiggy with it..
'Tub o talbot'(I won't spoil it) was another highlight.
Franklin Mott/James Frain was another highlight, his texting skills are...interesting to say the least and his idea of how to get a girlfriend is unique.
Eric/Alexander skarsgard and Pam/ kirsten bauer van straten were wonderful as ever, watch out for the basement scene in the first episode and the heartbreaking dialogue in the 11th episode and the finale.
Nan flanigan stomping round in her dominatrix gear was a hoot, watch out for the look on her face when see's what Russell has done.
The vamps stole the show once again, whilst the humans were irrelevant and frankly an annoying distraction from the more interesting vamp plots.
Who gives a stuff about Sam's family and his sudden change of character *pah* the same goes for Arlene and Terry.Read more ›
