All 12 episodes from the fifth season of the offbeat vampire drama adapted from Charlaine Harris's 'The Southern Vampire Mysteries' book series by writer Alan Ball. In this series, Sookie (Anna Paquin) makes an arrangement with Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) that will save a wounded Tara (Rutina Wesley) but leave her much changed and Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) find themselves under interrogation by the Vampire Authority following the murder of Nan Flanigan. The episodes comprise: 'Turn! Turn! Turn!', 'Authority Always Wins', 'Whatever I Am, You Made Me', 'We'll Meet Again', 'Let's Boot and Rally', 'Hopeless', 'In the Beginning', 'Somebody That I Used to Know', 'Everybody Wants to Rule the World', 'Gone, Gone, Gone', 'Sunset' and 'Save Yourself'.
Returning for its fifth season, True Blood is HBO’s sexy, scary, wildly entertaining drama series from Oscar®- and Emmy®-winner Alan Ball (Six Feet Under) and based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. In addition to returning cast favorites – human/faerie waitress Sookie Stackhouse, her vampire suitors Bill Compton and Eric Northman, soul-searching pal Tara, shape-shifting boss Sam, rakish brother Jason, clairvoyant Lafayette and teen-vamp Jessica – Season 5 introduces a whole new wave of otherworldly characters. There’s Vampire Guardian Roman, president of the Vampire Authority, who wants co-existence between humans and vampires; vampire zealot Salome (yes, the Salome), intent on recreating the world in God’s vampyric image; Authority Chancellor Nora, who shares the same maker as Eric; werewolves J.D. and Martha, who want a reluctant Alcide to take his rightful place as packmaster; and many more. Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, True Blood Season 5 goes deep into the battle between the Vampire Authority and “vampire fundamentalists” – a political power play whose outcome could decide not only the fate of Sookie and her Bon Temps friends, but of all human existence.

As far as the books go, we're off the edge of the map now, don't assume that the books and the TV series are in any way related
other than the names of the characters.
I felt this was quite a strong series, if only for the fact that there was so much going on that there was no time to be bored,
you had to pay attention and keep up, or you were going to miss something (always an excuse for a rewatch). I found the vampire council
laughable (really, you've survived how long with minimal social skills and a tendency to trust a man standing behind you with an axe?),
but it gave Russell an excuse to vamp it up to such extremes that he'd make a pantomime dame look like Jane Austen. So the funny bits worked
for me, but I found it hard to take the drama seriously.
Bill and Eric did strong, silent plotting although Bill also seems to have taken an unpleasant direction into mumbo jumbo fanaticism, Terry did bewildered, Arelene did gormless, Sam dependable, Sookie psychic, Jessica and Jason gorgeous much as usual. Hoyt breaks my heart in his scenes. Pam got several new dimensions, which I love, because I think she's great. Tara has given up being the emotional punchbag, but this now seems to have become Lafayette's role, which is so wrong because Lafayette exuberant is just irresistible.
Not as good a storyline as some other seasons, but everyone got plenty of screentime, which made for an exhilarating ride.
The whole wardrobe completes the era and makes it all the most visually entertaining viewing.
True Blood's music is just right for the setting of the scenes and interplay,
I have read all of the books and although this has moved away from them it is still in the keeping of the idea and enjoyable.
In general films can have music that can be a little noisey if people are talking in the film but that is only a little bit of criticism in most films it is the actors you want to hear not over powerful volume of the music but with True Blood they have it beautifully balanced.
