Product description

True Blood ~ Season 2

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 --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

By A. Whitehead TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 30 Sept. 2009
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.

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.

By Mr. D. L. Rees TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 16 Sept. 2010
Format: DVD
Two major threats. In Dallas religious fanatics plan to destroy all vampires. In Bon Temps ancient maenad Maryann incites general debauchery and plots to sacrifice Sookie's boss Sam....

Fans of the books have reasons to be pleased. Season 2 remains true to the spirit of the second novel, any changes made enhancing the impact on screen: Lafayette has thus been spared an early death; being drawn into The Fellowship of the Sun ensures Sookie's brother Jason still has a major role to play.

The television adaptation captures well the book's atmosphere and is full of arresting performances, Anna Paquin perfect as telepathic waitress Sookie. Watch out for Godric, the oldest vampire of them all, he played by an eighteen year old - calm amidst turmoil and, ultimately, very moving indeed.

The unnerving title sequence evocatively prepares viewers for excesses of sex, violence and gore. Even so, some of the episodes - as when Bon Temps residents are possessed - prove distinctly unsettling. Fortunately humour remains a boon - much of it at unexpected moments.

12 50+ min. episodes, 6 with commentaries. 2 bonuses. One depicts the respectable facade of The Fellowship. The other is a "television programme" showing how the vampires integrate.

Charlaine Harris and viewers have been truly well served, but be advised strong stomachs are needed.
