True Blood is a show that comes on HBO. The show is based on Southern Vampire Mysteries (Sookie Stackhouse) by Charlaine Harris. I loved the books and I am a huge fan, but I must warn those of you that read the books that the show is a bit different. Seeing as the show is on HBO it does feature nudity, sexual scenes/content, violence, blood/gore, bad language, and drug use. This is not a show for children.
Bon Temps is a small town in Louisiana.Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) is a waitress at Merlotte's, the local bar. Sookie can read minds. If that isn't weird enough her boyfriend, Bill (Stephen Moyer), is a vampire. It seems trouble always finds Sookie in one form or another. This season focuses on many plot lines which all intertwine. Sookies brother, Jason (Ryan Kwanten), joining an Anti-Vampire church. Sookie's boss, Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell), and his unique history with Maryann (a character who came in at the end of season one). Tara (Rutina Wesley), Sookie's best friend, is living with Maryann (Michelle Forbes) and has weird black outs happening to her. Oh, and Sookie helps Eric (Alexander Skarsgard), a vampire sheriff, with a missing vampire case in Dallas.
Whew. I tried to give good yet brief details of the season without giving the entire story away. I would highly recommend that you watch season one before just trying to jump in on season two. Personally I like season two better. There is more action and the story line is captivating. The show features vampires, shifters, and other paranormal creatures. Another plus is the guys in the show are some pretty pleasing eye candy. Also I LOVE the theme song. It is by "Bad Things" by Jace Everett. .
One thing I hate is when Bill says "Sookie" *cringe* its like hearing a mix between a hick and elvis say the name. I know its petty but I can not help it, it just bothers me every time. Also sometimes randomly there will be unnecessary nudity or someone sparking a "hand rolled cigarette" for no reason, my theory on that is because well it's HBO and they can get away with it. Still I am a die-hard True Blood fan and I am waiting on season three to come out on DVD.
