The Maenadian reign of terror may be over, but Sookie Stackhouse and the townspeople of Bon Temps face a new calamity that makes the bacchanalian evils of Maryanne Forrester seem tame by comparison. In Season 3, Sookie desperately tries to locate her fiancé, ending up in a netherworld of human and undead interlopers, among them the powerful Vampire King of Mississippi, Russell Edgington.

Those "soaps" off old, were silly, goofy AND HIGHLY ADDICTIVE! The TENSION, The Perfect Hair,(on EVERYONE!), The MAKEUP!
Anyone recall Erica Kane?? The DRAMA..ALL those marriages, All the PREGNANCIES....ALL of the (shush,now)....Illegitimate children!
True Blood does it's job very well! Takes our minds OFF our daily troubles, and puts them right where they BELONG....in the capable,loving hands of one of the best porn stars of the 19th century....MARILYN CHAMBERS!!
Take a chill pill!
Tru Blood is a brand of synthetic bottled blood engineered by Japanese scientists. Catering to the vampire population, the release of Tru Blood was the main catalyst for the Great Revelation - when vampires "came out of the coffin" and revealed their existence to the world.
Tru Blood is marketed as an alternative blood source for vampires and supposedly meets all their nutritional needs. However, many vampires have found Tru Blood to be revolting compared to human blood. Sam Merlotte notes that it is, at best, like a human giving up a favorite food in favor of drinking a slim-fast shake. It comes in as many flavors as there are blood types (e.g. B Negative, O Positive). It has been seen to be as expensive as $45 a bottle in hotels.
Tru Blood is intended to be served warm, with most preferring it at 37 degrees Celsius (98.6 F) much to the disgust of Hoyt Fortenberry after deciding to try it. It can be consumed cold or at room temperature, though most vampires will enjoy the drink even less at those temperatures.
Sensationalism has replaced most of the fun as most characters are pushed beyond their believable limits and plot twists come to substitute for enjoyable coherence often. Suckee, oops misspelled, has been in bed with almost all the characters by mid #3, and yet with all her trials and tribulations is not allowed to rise to the level of a Candide which would give the series some class and more chance to rise above simple sensationalism. Poor Bill has been good and then bad and then good so often and with such little motivation that the set dresser should have put out a little sign saying "He is good for a few minutes" to guide viewers. The Suckie character has the chance of being the innocent abroad in a poluted world, but is not allowed to rise to this satisfying dimension (nor is any other either).
This all goes to say that Season 3 allows much less intellectual enjoyment and is mainly a slam-bang kitchen sink mode of plotting and character "development." Even while consuming it as a knowing fan, the viewer is reminded of how much has been lost from Season 1. The "drama" of which of three "men" Suckie will love deeply this minute is sucked away by the creation of a reasonably realistic character manipulated so much beyond justification or coherence. It may not be possible, by Season 3, to treat this work as anything of any lasting value--a serious violation of its promise in Season 1.
Of course, experienced long term viewers can still go along for the roller coaster rides and would be sorry if the show had been ended after Season 2. And, too, viewers had better see all of 3 if they want to indulge in 4 and then 5 (or more?). In the end, however, it is just too bad that real inventiveness and deeper satisfaction could not be, somehow, carried on by the poor writers who, by Season 3, have been drained of intelligent fun and must be as pale as their characters now are...in both ways.
I wish Season 3 could have staked out satisfying, instead of hodge-podge, new ground.
