Season 4 showed up at my house today. The synopsis on the back says Bill is the new King of Mississippi. But I thought Bill was the King of Louisiana?

Did anyone else notice that?

I realize I'm probably making a mountain-out-of-a-molehill, but for some reason I find this very unsettling...

I know some people felt there were too many "monsters" but this is an urban fantasy tale with all types of horrors converging on Bon Temps so I'm not sure if it's an entirely fair criticism. Regardless, I felt this season was better than the previous season though that was good, too, this one was just better. There was a nice touch in the timeline here that added more texture and detail to the overall series but I don't want to give away spoilers. The coven of witches who show up created a nice division in Bon Temps and more importantly felt like one of the rare, real threats to all the vampires. STORY/PLOTTING: B plus; CHARACTERS/ DIALOGUE: B; OVERALL BON TEMPS CRAZINESS: B plus to A minus;
WHEN WATCHED: November to December 2011; OVERALL GRADE: B plus.

Wanted this on Blu-ray and it came with the DVD and Digital Copy as a bonus for no increase in price. $35 for this is a steal. I had to add this to my BluRay collection as I love the series.

This review is really late to the party because I wait and get the dvds from the library, but I just finished watching the full season 4 in three days and I have to vent. After just 4 seasons, I am starting to get majorly bored with this show. I was posessed when I first discovered season 1, as if I was taking V. I have to admit, I loved season 2 even more. The last two seasons have become increasingly tiresome. The balancing act of character growth, hot sex, melodrama, and humor used to be worthy of an HBO cable show, now it's turning into network tv with too many rushed plotholed uninteresting storylines (the ONLY good thing about that RIDICULOUS were-panther story was that Ryan Kwantaan, even covered with blood, can't help but exude sex.) He's still as much of a moron when he comes out of it as when he started. It really bugs me when characters that are so well written and acted that I fall in love with them are slowly drained of their juice with uncreative, repetitive, forced storylines that I'm now feeling I have to sit through to get to some meat. It's only been 4 seasons, this show should still be spontaneous, unpredictable, and juicy like it's vampires. Maybe watching a full season all at once is not the way to watch. There is still a lot to love, for sure. I thought Fiona Shaw's Marnie, like Michelle Forges mythic maenad in season 2, was Emmy worthy. Alexander Skarsgaard's amnesiac Eric and the subsequent change in his relationship with Anna Paquin's Sookie found me glued to the screen. THAT'S an example of creatively adding to the richness and depth of a popular character. I was SAD, I wanted MORE, when that idyllic time ended. I guess the parts I love are so well done that other parts are a real letdown. I guess that's really a tribute to how successfully True Blood still grabs me.

And Ryan Kwantaan STILL has "the sexiest hips I've ever seen". (Can't wait to see you again, Jessica!)

VINE VOICEon June 29, 2011
I have seen the first two episodes of this fourth season and I have great enthusiasm already for what is to come! When we last left Sookie she was upset by learning that Bill used her and decided to join her Fairy brethren in "Fairyland." Sookie is not there too long and finds it is no all she thought it to be. She has to make a daring escape to return to Bon Temps.

Sookie discovers that though she was away only a few hours, more than a year has passed in the "real" world. In fact, everyone thought Bill had killed her. A lot has changed. Sookie's house has been sold to a mysterious corporation, Bill is now the King of Louisianna, Andy is addicted to V, Jason is a full-fledged deputy, Sam has taken up with a group of Shape Shifters, Tara is living with a girlfriend in New Orleans, and Lafayette has been introduced to a coven of witches (he also has a new sleek do).

A lot happens in those first two episodes including Floyd and Jessica having their differences, learning that the new baby may be the second coming of Damian from "The Omen" and the secret vampire society is trying their hardest help vampires be accepted as normal citizens. Then we have Sheriff Eric who has new plans for Sookie. Only two episodes in and Eric is grudgingly accepting orders from King Bill and later is sent on a mission where he meets his match from something that seems to have changed him drastically. Lastly, the Panther clan have some secret plans for Jason.

I cannot wait for next week and I am lucky to suscribe to a cable service that has early premieres for the show so I am getting the new episodes a week early. The writers have done their best to already introduce a number of intriguing story lines so far and we still have not seen werewolves yet but I am sure they will be along as Sookie's werewolf friend has been signed on for this season of the show.

Let's face it: If you're a fan of the series, you're going to watch the 4th season of True Blood. But be prepared. It is not that good. Regardless of the hundreds of 5 Star Amazon reviews.

There is definitely a tonal shift from the production side of the series. Be that the fault of the writers, directors, producers, editors or everyone else invloved in the making of the show behind the camera. Something is just way off. The series isn't as clever, as biting or as energetic as it was in its first three seasons. It feels more generic, less electric now. The episodes and the scenes just don't have that certain snap to them anymore.

And speaking of the writing...some of the characters do complete 180s and act completely different than they have before. Sookie literally falls out of love with Bill and into love with someone else in the span of 48 hours. The character now comes across as a simple-minded back woods floozie. Jessica is also entirely different as well from the character we fell in love with in seasons 2 and 3. Oh, and that "Fairy Storyline" from the previous season? Almost completely dropped after the first five minutes of the first episode of Season 4. (Almost.)

There are a couple of good scenes and even episodes, but it is just not the beast that it once was. Here's hoping Seasons 5 and 6 are better.

I'm not reviewing the program, lots of people have done that. I'm just clarifying what's in the packages.

If you buy the DVD version of this season you will get 5 discs.

If you buy the Blu Ray combo pack you will get 5 blu ray discs and you will get the DVD version of the movie which is squeezed onto 2 double sided DVD discs. You will not get the 5 disc DVD set in the combo pack. Also, the episodes found on the Blu Ray and DVD versions do not correspond so you can't jump back and forth between watching the show on DVD or on Blu ray. Pick one format and watch it all the way through. I bought both versions today and thought somebody else might be curious as to the actual content.

When this show first started I thought wow, they were finally going to do a great show about not-only vampires but other supernaturals as well. Also, since I have read all the books that this show is based on and loved them so much I hoped so much that the show would try to stay close to the real story.

For the first three seasons I wasn't too upset by the changes but this fourth season it was just pure rubbish. I wish I knew why the producers and writers of the show just decided to destroy such a wonderful story but they did. They took probably the most fantastic story element and character and just threw them away. Not only that, they purposely killed off the one of the best characters (and most beloved characters in the book) in such a way that they were giving the finger to all the people who loved her. Besides being brutal and sad it was so unnecessarily mean spirited. That's what angers me. Fine you don't like her concept then why use her at all? Why create her just to hurt those who lover her? I know the writers went out of their way to hurt the people who loved this part of the story. I hope that Harris didn't approve of this, in fact I hope she doesn't help them any more.

I have hundreds of films in my collection and for the first time when I watched the last episode of a something I went right over to the rubbish bin and threw not only the forth season away but the whole series and I cancelled my HBO subscription which I only had to watch True Blood.

I am so saddened that they ruined such a great story. I don't know why they did it but my feeling is that the writers wanted things that were dark and mean and terrible instead of bringing so beautiful goodness to the world. Such a shame it had such potential. I really thought someone finally got it.

I know a lot of you are going to give me negative remarks and give me a bad vote but darn, I just am so disappointed and sad that some no talent writers ruined such a great concept.

It's a done deal I'm going to get this dvd set when it comes out because I love TB. But this season was such a total let down. I remember when S3 went off, I couldn't get enough of it. I watched it over and over on HBO. But I haven't bothered to watch S4 since the last episode aired and I'm not all that excited for S5.

I know why too.
Eric is one of my favorite characters was made a complete creampuff whenever he was around Sookie. I couldn't stand the "I love you, Sookies" that he kept saying at least 10x in each episode. And their sex scenes couldn't have been more lame and mechanical if they tired any harder.

Laffy. He lost so much of himself when he and Jesus got together. A lot of his attitude just wasn't there. He seemed so docile.

Bill was an improvement.

Tara was still one of my favorites, though I didn't care for her change is partner preference. Don't have anything against Lesbianism, it just didn't feel right for Tara. It felt forced. With Pam it's natural, but... Well, not for Tara because of her past history with men.

I also thought the last episode was just rushed and not written well at all. So many details were missing as the writers hurried the episode along to set up for next season.

I'll watch it all over again to refresh, but this was the weakest season. It had some cool scenes, like Sam was entertaining and there was a lot of funny stuff. But a lot of other storylines were just forgotten about like Hotshot and the werepanthers. The fairies were just touched on in the first 8 mins.

I thought the Sookie character took a step back in season 4.
For a few days Eric is a "new" guy and she sleeps with him, this even after
he killed her fairy godmother. This is not a growing character but a shrinking, almost
desperate one. How could she forget all the stuff he pulled in the previous year or so in just a few days. For those women that find this romantic this is the reason men do not understand you.
