Ah the first teaser for the Sixth Season of True Blood. It looks dreadful.
Immediately after the end of Season Five I canceled HBO. I couldn’t even get up the energy to post a blog for the last episode. True Blood has become a ridiculous mess. Alan Ball’s early comment/promise that he would “stay true to the spirit of the books” has been proven a lie. Who cares if EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER is in danger YET AGAIN this season.
The Southern Vampire Mysteries book series is about this unusual woman and the small town in which she lived. The characters are part of a small community that a reader comes to know and love. True Blood has contorted, distorted and corrupted these characters until they have become unrelated to each other and infinitely unlikable. Why should I care about what happens to anyone?
Honestly put this show out of it’s misery. It’s a mess. It’s been a mess since Maryann was elevated to a main character and it’s only gotten worse as the seasons have gone on.
By the looks of the casting calls the TPTB haven’t learned any lessons from the past. It’s another cast of thousands with several principal “big bads” who will be dead by the end of the season. YAWN.
“There’s no one to protect us now!” That’s certainly true. “It’s the beginning of the end.” It surely is, though I would argue Season 4 Episode 8 was the beginning of the end.
