  • Apr 21, 2019
    Ths was ok but i thought Maryellen sucked just didnt like that whole concept
  • Mar 30, 2019
    Shows the beginning of the plotting issues that plague later seasons. But the journey is still fun.
  • Feb 11, 2019
    A seven season supernatural ride in the American landscape, delivered by an awesome cast & crew!! Truly imaginative storyline that takes the Vampire franchise in a new direction- a must see for fans of the genre!!
  • Jun 29, 2017
    I adore the intentionally campy B feel they create in each season, they make it clear not to take anything thats happening to seriously in this crazy horror, comedy, soap opera, meets "goreous" adventure.

    By far my favorite season of TB. The King of Mississippi (Russell) and the psycho vampire, Franklin, mixed into the TB characters added instead of detracted from the storylines. Loved Russell on the News ripped the spine out of the newscaster. We also learn more about Bill's initial intentions and how vampire hierarchy truly works.

    In season 3, werewolves became a threat while vampire clans got into trouble. Much more adventurous than the previous seasons, season 3 was another enjoyable experience.

    While the secondary storylines are more interesting than the main story itself, True Blood's introduction to werewolves are a great addition to it's brilliant mythology.

    While some stuff isn't as interesting as the show wants you to think (werewolves?) the third season benefits from great additions to the cast.
