Now its sixth unforgettable season, True Blood is HBO's 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 addition to returning TB favorites - led by human/faerie hybrid Sookie (Anna Paquin), her unlikely vampire ally Eric (Alexander Skarsgård), and newly reconstituted supervamp Bill (Stephen Moyer) - Season 6 introduces several jarring storylines that threaten what little sense of normalcy remains in and around Bon Temps. As "Billith" comes to terms with his newfound powers after emerging from a pool of blood at the end of Season 5, Louisiana Governor Truman Burrell (new cast member Arliss Howard) declares open season on vampires, replete with novel anti-vamp weapons and a high-tech internment camp. Meanwhile, Sookie and Jason steel themselves for an encounter with the killer of their parents: the mysterious and ancient Warlow, whose identity remains a troubling mystery as the season unfolds.

In years to come-True Blood fans may look back on the scene from episode 9 where all the vampires are dancing and holding hands like a bunch of idiot as the PRECISE moment when True Blood jumped the shark. Now I'm not saying season 6 is all bad or even terrible. It's still True Blood so it's still entertaining. In some ways, I even thought it was an improvement over the disappointing season 5. The problem however seems to be two-fold:
1) This season lacked the feel of a "real" True Blood season. It almost felt like a "side season" or something not quite a part of the actual series but still related (sort of like Battlestar Gallactica one-offs like "The Plan" and "Blood and Chrome"). It just felt sort of empty and insignificant with no big threat or real enemy to fight. The big-bad this season looked like it was going to be Warlow. In the end however Warlow just came across as a chump, died like a chump and never really added much of anything to the story arch except for giving Sookie something and some ONE to do. The governor-another possible central threat likewise seemed unimportant and added nothing to the bigger picture. And what about Billith? Sookie was right on the nose when she said, "you're not a god Bill, you're just an a** hole." So really, out of three possible threats-there wasn't really much of any threat or any kind of real substance to keep the viewer interested.
2) This season was all over the place and I mean REALLY all over the place. Many of the characters we know and love seemed to do completely irrational things or they just became more and more unlikeable as the season went on. Eric was particularly nasty in the beginning, Bill was pretty much a dirt bag throughout even when he wasn't being Billith and even Alcide-who seems like one of the most morally grounded characters on the show became more and more unlikeable by the time the season ended. Also-the story seemed to change on a whim without any true direction as to where they were taking it. For those of you who watched this season-look back and try to describe it. You can pretty sum it all up in a sentence or two. "So yeah, the government decides to capture vampires to study and torture them then there's this Warlow guy who may or may not be a bad guy that Sookie jumps all over even though she's been giving Alcide the cold shoulder for years, oh and Bill is a god-somehow that factors into things, though I don't really see how...."
Don't get me wrong. This season was still entertaining and I still enjoyed watching it, but it just feels like if they don't start to right the ship a bit, True Blood could become the next show to fizzle out creatively and make us wish for it to end. Please, writers-get this show back on track. I miss the quality of the first four seasons.
PS: Writers- please also kill off Bill. Pretty pretty please. His character has run its course, and he's been a d**che bag for about three or four seasons now.
What I mean by that is that whenever a woman does a full nude scene they ALWAYS have the woman wearing a laugh out loud, ridiculous looking merkin (fake pubic hair) to conceal the crotch area. In some scenes it looked as though they taped a strip of a black garbage bag over the woman's crotch. It looks ridiculous. It's not just this show. Hollywood ALWAYS censors the vagina with merkins, but it looks especially ridiculous in this show.
Moreover, this show has shown the penis MANY times, including one episode that featured a nude man laying on a table as the camera slowly pans over his penis for a CLOSE-UP. Yet when it comes to frontal nudity for the women, the crotch is always hidden with a merkin.
If you're not going to censor the the genitals for men then don't do it with the women. But unfortunately ever since women started grooming in a manner where the crotch would be exposed, Hollywood always uses merkins to hide the vagina. It's a bizarre nudity double standard. With men they don't hesitate to show everything including actual genitals, yet with women they always use a cover up (merkin) to hide the genitals. It's a practice that really should end.
Your reviews are MEANINGLESS unless you're including something about the image & sound quality on the disc, whether there are extras that make it worth the money, how well Amazon.com handles the shipping, etc. The title of the submission page reads, "REVIEW YOUR PURCHASES", not "give us your opinion of the TV-show". You all are posers and liars!!!!
You people would probably even "review" the quality of a big-screen TV by ranting on about the guests on Leno's couch!
