I do not know why but I am completely addicted to "True Blood". Season 1 was wonderful and I guess I have watched three or four times. Season 2 just does not add up to season 1. At times it gets a bit boring and this is probably because they decided to veer from the books and flesh out the characters. I found that several of the episodes tended to drag but it regained momentum toward the end of the season. I had the feeling that the writers were trying very hard to add more supernatural characters aside from vampires. However we do have the evolution of Eric into a major character. "True Blood" is serious drama but in season 2 it just seems to have moved too far away from the main story and got bogged down in subplots. There is a lot of humor in season 2 and that is interesting in that the series is very dark. The season begins with the disappearance of Lafayette and Jason finding religion and introducing us to the Fellowship of the Sun. The entire series is well written and well acted and I find the cinematography to be beautiful (of course, it helps that I am from Louisiana). Prepare yourselves for the Vampire Queen of Louisiana and a wonderful performance by Evan Rachel Wood.
I was genuinely and pleasantly surprised by the second season of True Blood. While the series does get sillier and more over-the-top with the introduction of other supernatural beings, it manages to ground the storylines in human (figuratively speaking) drama. My main issue with season two is the story arc about Maryann, which I felt was never believable and her character and the developments surrounding her were just too distancing from Bill and Sookie's relationship and the civil rights issues. … more
True Blood Season One is like the cake. True Blood Season Two is the delicious icing on that cake! You must see Season One before Season Two or you wont understand the storyline. BTW...Season Three is AMAZING!
There is no doubt that True Blood has won the hearts (no pun intended) of America. In its second season on the air, the awesome vampire drama is the best thing HBO has had to offer in that category since The Sopranos. While True Blood was still highly entertaining and left you at the edge of your seat after each episode, its sophomore season left me just a little disappointed as I felt it lacked some of its umph from last season. With a great start to the season, True Blood slowly … more

The first season of True Blood hooked me from the start and made me excited to watch a vampire based tv series for the first time since Dark Shadows went off the air in1971. I looked forward to a an equally enjoyable second season and was greatly disappointed. The first season had stuck with a few main topics (vampires fighting for equal rights, Sookie's personal issues and the murder mystery). The second season lost me from the first episode. As the weeks went … more
" True Blood's second season premiered on June 14th 2009.
Season two focused heavily on the relationship between Sookie Stackhouse and her vampire boyfriend Bill. The anti-vampire church, The Fellowship of the Sun was one of the major plots during the season as well. Maryann Forrester was one of the bigger stories for season 2, as she takes over the town of Bon Temps.
