Given that (at time of posting) True Blood is nicely into season 3 over in the States, I thought it round about time I got my backside into gear and review season 2 (after all the DVD set has been sat on my desk staring accusingly at me).
So, those of you who read my review of season 1 will know that I rather liked it. Season 2 can be fairly much split into two main arcs. We will deal, in the main with the vampire arc, and thus I will touch on, for a brief moment the Maryann (Michelle Forbes) arc.
Ultraviolet), are forced by the vampire sheriff of the area they live in, Eric (Alexander Skarsgård), to go to Dallas as Godric (Allan Hyde), the 2000 year old sheriff of the Texas area and Eric’s maker, has gone missing and Eric wishes to utilise Sookie’s telepathy in the search. A word here in respect of Skarsgård who is fantastic as Eric, a character with pathos, comedic moments and moments as cold as ice – rapidly becoming my favourite character as he is in the books.
Season 2 was fantastic, but let down by an over-long Maryann arc. 7.5 out of 10. The imdb page is here.
