Editorial Reviews

Returning for its fifth season, True Blood is HBO’s sexy, scary, wildly entertaining drama series from Oscar®- and Emmy®-winner Alan Ball (Six Feet Under) and based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. In addition to returning cast favorites – human/faerie waitress Sookie Stackhouse, her vampire suitors Bill Compton and Eric Northman, soul-searching pal Tara, shape-shifting boss Sam, rakish brother Jason, clairvoyant Lafayette and teen-vamp Jessica – Season 5 introduces a whole new wave of otherworldly characters. There’s Vampire Guardian Roman, president of the Vampire Authority, who wants co-existence between humans and vampires; vampire zealot Salome (yes, the Salome), intent on recreating the world in God’s vampyric image; Authority Chancellor Nora, who shares the same maker as Eric; werewolves J.D. and Martha, who want a reluctant Alcide to take his rightful place as packmaster; and many more. Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, True Blood Season 5 goes deep into the battle between the Vampire Authority and “vampire fundamentalists” – a political power play whose outcome could decide not only the fate of Sookie and her Bon Temps friends, but of all human existence.

The Bon Temps gang returns for the fifth season of HBO's "True Blood". I am a colossal fan of the show, having seen every episode since the pilot. Like every show, "True Blood" has had a few ups and downs in terms of writing. Seasons one and two were the show at its best, in my opinion. Season three was a lot of fun, but suffered from cluttered storylines and tonal problems. But, season four -- although it still can't top season one or two -- was a solid return to form (and I can't understand the bashing it regularly receives on here from other fans).

So, how does season five compare? I found this year to be even better than the last; the most compelling reason for this is the fundamental shaking up of all things comfortable and familiar on the show. All of the close relationships have been compromised or changed or they've grown apart: Sookie/Bill/Eric, Sookie/Tara, Pam/Eric, Jason/Hoyt, Tara/Lafayette, etc. This was the year of the Break Up (friendships as well as romances). But, the interesting thing is how this made way for all sorts of new and compelling bonds to form: Bill/Eric, Pam/Tara, Jason/Jessica.

Season five was definitely a game-changer (probably because it was creator Alan Ball's farewell season). There isn't even a clear-cut Big Bad this year. The villain could be seen as The Authority and through our infiltration of the system this year, we get the sense of just how ambiguous the concepts of right and wrong, good and bad really are to the vampires of the True Blood 'verse. The most compelling part about this story is finally getting to see the inner workings of the Authority and how fundamentally it changes both Bill and Eric (especially toward the latter half of the season). The members of the Authority themselves, though, are a mixed bag.

I've been a fan of True Blood since the beginning, but this past season has begun to test my loyalty. The seasonal villain is too far-fetched. I know the characters are vampires, but it would be nice to see even one of them maintain a successful relationship. If this keeps up, we're going to need a flow chart just to keep up with who is sleeping with whom and who is now a vampire and who is still human. I still have hopes for the new season, but I'm only cautiously optimistic.

True Blood started as everyone saying you have to see this and me grudgingly taking Season 1 from a friend. I now own all the seasons, know each character by name with background story and am humbly awaiting the release of season five. Its addicting, dont' say I didn't warn you

Such a good series! If you have yet to get started on the True Blood sereis...where have you been?! Definitely not something for the young adult to be watching but us adults sure can watch and watch and watch!! I won't dare miss an episode and sometimes find that I will watch the new episode 2-3 times the first night it airs! Really good series just wish there were more episodes to each season and I HATE that this coming season (in 2014) will be the final season! Now that really sucks!!

Oh, dear. Poor Sookie. After the great ending of the last season with Debbie blasting Tara, and in turn Sookie blowing Debbie's head off, I was so happy. It was going to guarantee that this season would A: Open with a moral dilemma for Sookie cold-bloodedly murdering someone, and B: Do away with the most annoying character this program has (Tara). And it was going to have Christopher Meloni, who stagnated far too long on SVU, to finally play a character that would allow him to have fun. Also, with Bill and Eric playing fugitive, that had some good character conflict set up immediately as well. This had all the earmarks of a very good start.

Alas, none of these things were to be.

The fact that I watched every episode of the season was something befuddling to me, because other than one of the episodes directed by Michael Lehmann, this was an even more confusing and increasingly frustrating season with just some flat-out ham-fisted story arcs.

The main arc of the season was a not-bold-at-all-but-trying-to-be satire of rising fundamentalism and political and religious division in the United States where the Vampire Council slowly start to convert to a more fundamentalist belief that humans are their food, and they should not try to integrate at all but rather feed and kill at will according to the teachings of The Vampiric Bible and Lilith, the god of all vampires. On the human side of the spectrum, you have human groups in Bon Temps going around killing vampires and assorted "freaks", promoting the superiority of humans in the world. And then there's Sookie caught in the middle of everything, as per usual.
