I have been a major Sookie Stackhouse fan for years. I began reading Charlaine Harris's series, then called the Southern Vampire Mysteries, since before book four came out, and have read them all in order. I was puzzled when I found out that HBO was going to make a TV adaptation of it. Why this particular series? Why not Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series? (It would have been suitable, what with all of the sex and all.) There were others as well, like Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld and MaryJanice Davidson's Queen Betsy series -- all of which have the erotic tones that HBO would have loved. So why this book series? Now I know why, but more on that later.

I very much enjoyed season one. It was very faithful to Dead Until Dark, except that small characters like Tara and Lafayette were expanded, and you get everyone's point of view, not just Sookie's. Also, Bill has more depth here, and you see things from his point of view, and you understand him better. Other storylines were added, like the emphasis on "V" addiction, which makes sense. Season two has taken things to a whole other level and I love it so far. I can't wait for the blu-ray release! From the very beginning, the show has very sexually explicit scenes, most of which centered on Jason's exploits, and some violence as well, with a great deal of emphasis to vampire hatred as the new form of southern racism/segregation. Season two takes things further, with gore and horror replacing the sex (there's still plenty of it though), and the fledging out of characters like Eric, Tara and Lafayette (whose death does not happen in the TV series).

I've already watched the two season and was delighted to see I could get it on demand. Willing to put out my hard earned money to own the show but then was puzzled to see it was only a rental and not ownership for On demand. What makes this even more insane is the rental is $3 per/ eps for one 24 hr viewing. That is the same price to OWN 1 eps. in HD for any other show. Then to add to the insanity you can buy the season on Blu-ray for only $42. Ok a little more then $3 per/eps but still they have to make the disc and the box the disc go in and storage for inventory vs on-demand being a little server space. And you OWN the disc and can walk over to anyone house with Blu-ray to play it, no restrictions to deal with. So how in the world does their on-demand policy make sense?

Again it shows why piracy is so common place when companies come up with these insane pricing and ownership schemes. So I guess for now I just won't own True Blood and live with just one time viewing when it shows on HBO (cheaper that way).

I recorded most of True Blood Season 2 last summer on my DVR but I missed two episodes.

I though I would just purchase them from Amazon because I had some credit left from a gift card. Then I found two problems. First, I was disappointed to see that it's $3 per episode, not the $3 I am used to for TV shows. Second, I was even more disappointed to see that it's only a RENTAL, not a purchase. HBO and Amazon expect you to pay $3 an episode to watch the season ONE TIME!?!

That's just crazy. If they want to make them rentals they can't be more than $1 per episode. If I pay more than that I expect to OWN the series and be able to watch them over and over. This is why people download shows illegally, unreasonable policies and ridiculous pricing.

The first season of True Blood was about as much fun as a TV show could be and as a fan I was eager to jump into season two, especially after the cliff-hanging ending to season one.

The first few episodes weren't too bad - they fit in well with what came previously. We see that a few humans have been kidnapped for various reasons and are being kept in a basement that was decorated right out of the darkest moments of "Saw" or "Hostel".

But then the show pursued two equally inane storylines: the first involves the "Fellowship of the Sun", a fundamentalist bible-thumpin' Christian Church led by a group of big-haired, frozen-faced... I was going to say "zombies", but they're humans - just the worst kind of stereotypes - the husband/wife team heading the church is like a younger version of Jim and Tammy Faye. Anyway, the Fellowship recruits Jason to become a warrior for Jesus while they have secretly kidnapped Godric, one of the more ancient and powerful vampires. The second storyline revolves around Tara and her evolving relationship with Maryanne, a woman with mysterious supernatural powers. (I'm stifling the urge to add spoilers, even though I think the spoilers wouldn't dampen your enjoyment more than the already tepid script.)

Season one was fun and sassy and sexy, with great characters: Bill the Southern Gentleman vampire, Sookie the telepathic waitress, Jason - Sookie's dim-witted brother, Tara the sassy on the outside - tender on the inside girl and Lafayette, Tara's exotically flamboyant gay short-order-cook cousin. Season two is dull and disjointed and often just plain stupid. The series, initially designed around the characters of Sookie the Waitress and Bill the Vampire, demotes both of them to supporting characters in this disjointed mess of a season. I'll stick around for a few moments of season three to see if the show improves, but life is short, know what I mean?
