Watching True Blood is like an addiction – I’ve spent a day (24 hours) watching it and just now finished the second season. One thing I have to say, it goes on perfectly like a fluid movie and the story lines keep on going. But ending the second season like that was just torture, I was lucky that I had the chance to watch the first 3 episodes of the third season right after. So my torture wasn’t long. I don’t know what’s gonna happen in the end of the third season because I have to wait until the next summer and that just might be too hard for me.
Anyhow, did I liked the second season? Oh yes I did! Manly because there was a lot of Eric in it and he is just delicious. I don’t know what it is but I like bad vampires more than the ones like Bill. Even if the actors were different, I’d still be a fan of Eric. He is to me the character you read and like because he has that mysterious side to him and to watch Alexander Skarsgård play him is pure pleasure. Over 6 feet (1,93m) tall, blond with strong features – it just screams mysterious. But at times it feels that it is easier to play a bad guy, although in this case Eric is more of an “I’m bad, I’m good, I don’t care” guy. Bill on the other hand is that character who you’re going to like or not. But usually for me, the couple who gets together right at the beginning is boring and I want the underdogs (Eric) to get the final laugh. (I like the torture too when two characters belong together but they just don’t know it or just lie to themselves – Bones is a good example!) So that is why I’m team Eric on this one, just like I was team Jacob before all the movies started coming out – totally ruined the books for me (haven’t even read the fourth one). Anyway, go underdogs – woof woof!
Similar to the first season, the second one had a main plot – this mysterious creature that attacked Sookie. But that’s not all – there is also this new social worker that starts helping Tara and Lafayette gets kidnapped by Eric – who got highlights but got blood all over them and had to cut his hair which was totally a better look for him! (This brings up a question – vamps are dead and everything heals after they get attacked or in Jessica’s case loose their virginity – but the hair doesn’t grow back? Oh well, all the series have those little itsy-bitsy mistakes, I mean, Edward has glitter all over him, so who can say that a perfectly good haircut is a mistake – so I’m gonna take it back!). And change in Erics appearance wasn’t the only thing that changed – Jason almost didn’t have any sex! I mean, he was hardly naked – although, Eric was.. and Bill .. and Sam. There was a new love interest for Tara and he was naked too. Baby vamp Jessica got a lot of screen time as well. And there were so many moments at the end of the season that I can’t even talk about – awesome is the word for those scenes that made me all shivery inside and I have to admit, I cried one time during the season but not gonna tell you where – those who are fans probably know , others – just watch the show already! One thing about the second season as well – in my head, its all just one big story and I can’t make out the episodes – this shows that watching True Blood in one sitting gives it a whole new meaning. Plus, when most of the episodes end you just can’t go to bed because you want to know what’s gonna happen next.
I have to remind you that what is great about True Blood, is the writing – along with the acting it makes those ironic and sarcastic (with a lot of cursing from Sookie!) dialogs interesting and enjoyable. And I can’t tell you how much I enjoy it as it goes on like a really long movie (I know I repeat it but most shows have something new in every episode, True Blood carries the same plots from start to end during many episodes). One season is like a 12 hour marathon with blood and vampires and blood and vampires – just adorable. But since the third one is airing now and I have watched all the episodes that have aired at this point I got sad so I decided to read Sookie Stackhouse’s books too. They are different I have heard but since the characters are the same and there is something very good (for me) to look forward in the latest books – so I must get to them fast. I’m guessing I have to start posting about books too – just kidding, I’m gonna stick with the movies and TV-shows. After all, I’m a fan of the show first and a reader of the books second.
So stay tuned for more blood!
