As many of you are well aware, I watch True Blood on HBO. Last season I stopped writing about it because even though it was a good show, it was nothing spectacular (in my opinion). Well this season has definitely changed my opinion.
Last season the story mainly revolved around Sookie and Bill's relationship, the serial killer, and Jason's crazy girlfriend. The Remy twist was cool, and Jason having sex with every girl in the town was great, but other than that, it was kind of boring and repetitive (oh, Bill did something dumb, Sookie runs to Sam, Sam loves Sookie, blah blah blah).
Fortunately this season, we have a much cooler set of stories, with much stronger characters. The Mary Ann story is probably my favorite. I kept trying to figure out what kind of being she was (I kept leaning towards Circe from the Odyssey) and the big revelation was that she is a type of being, Dionysus/Satan/Kali...very cool stuff.
Also, learning more about the vampire world makes me happy. Being a history lover, I love to see how their government is structured with Kings and Sheriffs and whatever else there is in their political systems. Also, seeing Eric's origin was awesome.
The Fellowship of the Sun story has been great though. How crazy are these fanatics? They really want to go to war with vampires? The preview for next week does not look like it will end well for them. Oh, and Eric better have a giant broad sword at some point.
Anyways, just thought I would throw out there some thoughts on the show. Anyone else care to let me know what they think of the season so far, favorite story lines, whatever.
