Ok I’ve been watching the show Trueblood since the end of the 1st season last year, I was told it was good and I had to check it out. At first it kinda bothered me that it was set in Louisiana because I knew the potential of the story and the depth that could really be achieved if it were taken to a larger city with a little more danger and a little less southern accent. I don’t think I really enjoyed the first season like I’ve enjoyed other shows that I like, but I always had a strange feeling that the show would really start to get good as it progressed, the unveiling of new creatures and danger at every corner is always intriguing and the show seems to do a pretty good job of that now that we’re in season 2. Even though this new season is about 10 times better than season one it still sometimes finds a way to disappoint, it seems like every other episode is pretty pointless, I understand that not every show can be introducing new content, and I wouldn’t even want that, but the episodes that aren’t very good don’t necessarily offer anything, they’ll provide one good scene then the rest will be an attempt to further the relationships or build the characters but it often falls flat, giving us more information that we already know and not really leading us to believe that anything has truly happened. With that said I’m still excited every week when Trueblood is on because despite that it has a lot to offer and is probably the best show on right now, at least until Californication comes back on in the fall or It’s Always Sunny again in the fall. If you haven’t had the chance to see Trueblood I suggest you start checking it out, it has a great premise and is always full of adventure in the fantastical vampire world, plus it’s really starting to get good and you wouldn’t want to miss it.
