The show centres around the residents of Bon Temps, a small town in Louisiana and their encounters with the supernatural, not just vampires. There are Shapeshifters, Werewolves, Witches, Maenads, Fairies etc.
With a serial narration every episode ends on a cliffhanger, especially the finales. The show has come under criticism for having too many storylines, however this is a soap opera style show multiple subplots that may go nowhere were bound to happen. Like with most soap operas what happens in the stories doesn't really matter, what matters is the characters.
Speaking of which, this show has awesome characters and well casted actors portraying brilliantly. The main character telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse, played by Anna Paquin, gets a mixed reception since she can be stupid, irritating and has to be rescued a lot. But she feels real, and she can be very loveable, sympathetic, brave and hilarious. She really balances out sweetness and feistiness. Even when she becomes damsel-in-distress you never get the feeling she's going to give up. Her supernatural ability makes her feel like an outcast and has her questioning her humanity, which makes her interesting and relatable. The two main vampires are: Bill Compton who is gentlemanly yet darkly mysterious, then there's Eric Northman who is a bad-boy vampire yet hiding a soft spot. These two vampires are like the yin to each others yang, perfect contrast.Read more ›
Loved seasons 1-4. The characters were sharp, witty and for the majority fiesty- with all of the storylines connected across the series'. There is a bit of action, romance, comedy all wrapped up in a brilliant vampire parody. Something for everyone to enjoy. The acting is brilliant with Ryan Qwanten being a forerunner for me.
Season 5 lost its way a bit in my opinion and felt too long. Mainly because the normal character dynamics and dialogue between characters had disappeared with neither Eric nor Bill having much to do with Sookie, who almost became a background character for the next couple of seasons. There was little in the way of action and I found myself fast-forwarding through certain scenes due to boredom. There were several characters introduced who seemed to be there more to annoy the viewer than to add much to the story with most being killed off within the season itself or in the early stages of the next one.
Overall, a good way to spend your weekend. Though I wouldn't watch it with your parents- uncomfortable doesn't begin to describe it. The box set was good value for money and there were good extra features for each of the seasons.
I have never seen such an imaginative , well acted TV series before, a huge army of characters all intertwined in the humid swamps of Louisiana. Stephen Moyer as Vampire Bill Compton holds it all together with his underplayed acting, such a skill, and he is ably supported by Anna Paquin and the rest of the talented cast.
It's a very interesting show, if you haven't seen it before you'll be hooked by the end of the first episode.
