This season started off with a fantastic bang, but as it progressed the episodes became increasingly stupid and disappointing. The third season's main plot point is the exciting kidnapping of Bill by the King of Mississippi who has a pack of V-addicted werewolf henchman. Naturally, Sookie does everything she can to save her man with Eric both preventing and/or helping her in her endeavors. However, this season bombards the viewers with too many new characters and subplots. There are literally more than a dozen new characters, and most of the already established characters (Layfayette, Sam, Tara, Jessica, Jason, Arlene, etc) seem to have their own subplots going on. Some of the characters rarely have any interaction with each other, but only with the new characters in their own personal story. In fact the subplots take up so much of the show that I often feel like I am watching 4 or more shows at once. Along with new characters there are several new "supes" (supernaturals) that are introduced in this season including werewolves, werepanthers, fairies/"fae", and witches. I also find it strange that a good amount of the "supes" are backwater, dirty hicks who don't even look classy enough for a trailer park. Some cheesy and downright stupid scenes make viewers feel that perhaps True Blood is going in the direction of every other vampire show, book or movie, which is mind-numbing stupidity. Possibly the worst part about this season was the finale, which was a horrible episode, nonetheless horrible season finale. In fact I think it was probably the worst episode of True Blood I have ever seen.

However, this is not to say this season did not have some great twists and turns to keep viewers on the edge of their seat.

Following the hedonistic reign of terror of the redoubtable Maryann, the residents of Bon Temps are once again trying to pull their lives back together. For Sookie Stackhouse, events are complicated by the disappearance of her vampire lover Bill Compton, the emergence of a bunch of werewolves on the scene and the machinations of the vampire King of Mississippi. Meanwhile, Sookie's brother Jason pursues a new career in law-enforcement, Sam Merlott tracks down his real parents and Jessica, now broken up with Hoyt, embraces her vampire side more freely. Meanwhile (again), Lafayette gets a boyfriend called Jesus (True Blood? Controversial? Never!) and there are some meth-dealing hicks around causing mischief. And there's this werewolf called Alcide who fancies Sookie and spends a fair bit of time with his shirt off. And Tara gets emotionally abused (yet again) by Thomas Cromwell from The Tudors. And a whole ton of other stuff happened which I'm forgetting right now.

True Blood has always been a nutty, camp, somewhat trashy but always resolutely entertaining show, but its third season is nothing less than a sustained, full-scale assault on the viewer's senses and sanity. Learning from the pacing problems in Season 2 (where the latter part of the season degenerated into a tiresome parade of filler orgy scenes for no discernible plot reason), Alan Ball has massively overcompensated, packing every single instant of this season with surprising plot revelations, new characters, surprise reappearances of old characters (including dead ones), new ideas, new races, new concepts and, indeed, the kitchen sink. It's certainly not a dull season, but it is one that is overloaded to the point of near-incoherence.

I will admit this season had flaws. It did have too many storylines that most people didn't care about (Jason and Arlene's whole storylines for example). However, the plots that were good were really good and entertaining. The Sookie, Bill, Russell, and especially Eric and Pam stuff did not disappoint. Eric's and Russell's arcs were the best of the season. They were not only gripping but left you in agony waiting to find out what happened next. The only other downfall was the Sookie and Bill relationship got tedious being dragged out so long. Sookie began to look like a doormat, and you just wondered how far down the hole she would go. But otherwise, a very good season. If the writers would focus more on the supernatural plotlines and tie in Jason, Sam, and Tara's storylines directly with the more interesting supernatural plot they would achieve the perfect season. But I still say this is the best season because they gave more screentime to the most interesting characters and really focused on character development, which is very important and is something HBO does well and other regular cable shows often lack. Eric is the most captivating character on the show, and it was good to see his character's screentime adjusted in accordance with the books. I have read the books, but I was a show fan first and still perfer the show and I like most of the differences. The main storlyine is still there with changes to add drama. Hopefully Season 4 brings it and I am really looking forward to it!

I don't really get the negative reviews calling the show trashy. The whole point of HBO is that they don't have to censor the way other shows do and it allows them to depict the sex scenes and language more realistically. Of course, this is a vampire show, so it's going to be more violent and over the top.
