Critic Reviews for True Blood Season 3

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (12)

True Blood is dominated by heated emotions and tortured love, but there continues to be spiky satire and camp at every turn.

Jun 22, 2018 | Full Review…

It's unavoidable that "True Blood" will fall into some of the same dramas as other vampire shows. It's just got sharper teeth.

Jun 20, 2010 | Full Review…

"Hot Sexy Vampires in Love!" Where do I sign up for that? Silly, gross, soapy, mysterious, intriguing, exotic, erotic "True Blood" is fun.

While I wasn't thrilled with the over-stuffing of this episode, I was truly excited (in more ways than one) to see my favorite characters back again.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

True Blood is the TV equivalent of the perfect summer beach book. It's funny, it's sexy, it's imaginative, it's outrageous.

May 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Those of you who love "True Blood" for its soapy mix of sex and horror - and occasional flashes of humor - nothing important is missing from the three episodes I've seen of the new season.

Jun 20, 2010 | Full Review…

By the middle of the second episode, the show begins to gain traction and sucks you in with its new set of tantalizing mysteries.

Jun 20, 2010 | Full Review…

Rather than running through a lot of well-written, well-acted, well-edited expository material, True Blood was back to playing on our hearts and minds and throats.

Jun 22, 2018 | Full Review…

True Blood vibrates at a level of inspired wackiness so high that its consistency is hard to determine.

Top Critic

HBO's Gothic hit remains as sexy, bloody and convoluted as ever.

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.
