True Blood: The Complete Seventh Season (DVD)
“True Blood is the sexy, scary, wildly entertaining series from Oscar® and Emmy winner Alan Ball (Six Feet Under) and based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. In this final season, an initial battle between raging Hep-Vamps and their Bon Temps prey sets the stage for a season-long series of hair-raising denouements for Sookie, Bill, Eric, Jason, Sam, Alcide, Tara and their human/vampire allies and adversaries. In the end, some of True Blood’s most beloved figures will meet cruel fates, while others will cheat death (true and otherwise) to forge happily-ever-after relationships that will leave fans surprised and, ultimately, satisfied. What will happen to your favorite True Blood character?”]]>

Well...I just finished the laat episode of season 7 and it did wrap itself up in a nice big red bow, didn't it. I'm just so sad that Bill and Sookie didn't get their happy ending. Now I have to unzombie myself after that binge watch and think happier thoughts. I'm glad I watched it all, though.
As mentioned above, the writing is excellent. One of the best aspects about this series is that it is definitely NOT predictable! Not in the least. You never know where the writers are going to take you...from one episode to the next, or from one season to the next. The character development, story lines, acting, directing, casting and effects are all first rate. Considering that the series has its fair share of killing (although not overly so, and it's certainly not the focus of the show), the series couldn't be called "dark" or gory by any means. I also would not call this show necessarily "violent" either. (Personally, I don't care for violent shows or movies, and I find this series to be tolerable on the violence scale. It does have killing and blood and bodies and body parts, after all there are vampires in it, but even so, it's done in a way that is not offensive or vulgar.)
There is comedy, drama, action and suspense...and very well choreographed cliff-hangers to end each episode. Despite the blood, death and suspense, the series as a whole is well balanced with comedy and other character's story lines which help keep it from being overly dark. There is a quite a bit of nudity - not raunchy, but tasteful and almost artful. So if you're sensitive to nudity, just be forewarned...or simply cover your eyes during those parts, because the story lines and acting make this series well worth watching. I easily give 5-stars to every season.
Another refreshing bonus is that the episode commentary for every season is also worth watching. The actors, directors and writers actually contribute thoughtful and interesting tidbits that add to the episodes and the series. It's best to watch the commentaries after you've completed the season because sometimes they accidentally reveal things that happen later in that season.
This series is well worth purchasing.
Still this series turned out much better than I expected, and I enjoyed the music and the main character, very much. I heard the final season was bad, but I liked it a lot. Much better than the middle seasons where a lot of the fairy shenanigans fell flat for me, along with the origins of vampires. Still it was clever in handling life saving plot devices for main characters by foreshadowing in lesser characters. The show had its flaws but they weren't enough to detract me from thoroughly enjoying the show.
