True Blood Season 5 – **(*)

Posted: November 30, 2015 in 2012, Comedy, Horror, Satire, TV series, USA, XX1/2

A few reasons why this season feels like it’s the best of the series so far:

  • unlike the previous seasons, few new characters are introduced, which is good, because you can root for the ones you like and loathe
  • almost all the remaining characters are worth rooting for
  • there are several separate stories which don’t necessarily need to merge by the end, making it much easier to follow
  • the references to sects and religious extremists is omnipresent. this season was made a few years ago, but we all now what extremist believers of a certain faith are capable off…
  • Tara becomes a Vampire
  • Pam becomes an important character and remains sexy as hell
  • Bill becomes evil
  • Eric plays the hero
  • Lafayette is more camp than ever
  • the one liners and many situations are funny again
  • the gore is original (Shapeshifting Sam turns into a fly and gets swallowed by a vampire – just guess what happens next)
  • it’s sexy and sensual as it should be
  • but above all: Sookie is no longer the centre of all attention and she still is by far the most fun character to watch
