True Blood ~ Season 2
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.

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.Read more ›
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.
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.
