I absolutely love True Blood season two and the suspense i almost lost the placement of what season as i continue to watch. The seasons fly by like you will never even know your on season four because it pulls you in. Definitely do not want to watch this around kids the sexual content in it is very high but me and my partner always wait for the kids to go to bed so we can enjoy our adult show. If you like vampire diaries and drama filled shows this will be a extra souped up adult show for you to enjoy. I think the whole sookie thing is even more intense but in my own mind kinda funny since she is always the girl who needs to be saved but try's saving everyone else herself. The way i don't want to put any detail in anything because it takes all the joy out of being able to watch yourself and help make it much more exciting for your expectations. Enjoy a great show and be prepared for a great new show just for you adults or even you parents who have to watch cartoons all day.

There is a lot of gratuitous nudity -- thank god.

I liked season 1 well enough, but by the end of season 2, things just got silly, and then descended from there as the show went along its long, slow march to the final episode of the final season. The show remained visually exciting and well made. What was charming and quirky in season 1 soon turned to ludicrous and absurd. I'm all about the suspension of disbelief. If you tell me there are vampires - great, I believe it. If you tell me there are werewolves - very well. If you tell me there are werewolves that want to have sex with fairies who like having sex with vampires who are half fairy? Okay, I guess. There are so many gaping plot holes and flaws in the show's own logic about the world they created that it gets to the point where one can't possibly care what the hell happens next because it could be absolutely anything for no reason at all.

I tried reading the books and had a similar reaction. The first book is great but then they are progressively less compelling and imaginative, substituting stunt for wit and sex for charm.

True Blood Season Two is a Real Winner
Verified purchase
This is my second time around on the True Blood series. I never really thought of myself as a fan of the vampire genre, but True Blood totally changed all that. From the fabulous intro sequence, with it's great country music track, I was hooked. I never get tired of the intro. The perky and irrepressible character Sookie Stackhouse, played by Anna Paquin, is just as cute as a button, but she also has a real tough streak that you just have to admire and love. Stephen Moyer's character, vampire Bill, is a pure delight. He is the epitomy of the civil-war-era southern gentleman -- and a vampire. What a great combo. The supporting cast are all stellar as well. There is plenty of romantic interest as well as downright smokin' love scenes. It was a cable show to begin with, right? So not for the kiddies. It is interesting to note that Paquin was the second youngest Academy Award winner of all time -- at least as of the time she got the award -- beaten only by Shirley Temple. There is also plenty of action and of course gore galore laced with big, big helpings of laugh-out-loud humor. If you have a pulse, I can't see how you would not love this series. Season two is every bit as good as season one if not better -- and is a real winner.

Not as good as the first season but worth a watch
Verified purchase
I have never read the Charlaine Harris books that this show is based off of even though it seems like something that would be in my library. I found season two to be a bit off the trail that season one was. I would have loved to learn more about the Dallas vamps. The MaryAnn story line seemed to drag forever. The Jason and the Fellowship of the Light story line showed more about what goes on in Jason's head and by the end of the season, though he's a simpleton, you realize that he is loyal and has a very good heart. Godric. Why did they let me fall in love with Godric? I am so glad that this season explored a bit more of what was going on with Tara too. All in all, I didn't enjoy this season nearly as much as I enjoyed the first season, I think they filled it with fluff but it does keep you in touch and intrigued with the characters and eager to see what is going to happen next.

Series could have been renamed True Orgy
Verified purchase
I really liked True Blood Season One, thinking that Alan Ball did a great job expanding on the books without losing Charlaine Harris's vision of Sookie, the people of Bon Temps, the vampires, etc. *were*. This season, in spite of feeling big love for the unexpected Jessica Hamby story arc. I really enjoyed the whole Steve and Sarah Newlin angle, and that crazy church camp atmosphere was creepy and funny in equal amounts.

But oh my unholy bacchanalia, could the story line with MaryAnn have been drawn out more annoyingly? It's really annoying to watch a show based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels - because you'd think you'd be seeing a lot of Sookie, right? - only to find her starring role pre-empted by a maenad, a creature who played only the most minor of roles in the novels. I don't think that the television series has to be based chapter-for-chapter, episode-for-episode on the books, but there's only so much that can be done to "improve" on Charlaine Harris's work without the entire story (which includes all the characters) dis-integrating.

MaryAnn's story line wasn't so much uninteresting to me as it was stupid and overplayed. Greek mythology considered, her persona as Kind and Caring Social Worker was unusual...I would have thought that a maenad would have been the complete opposite and way more up front in her desire to party hard and take the town with her. Tara is revealed to be one of the most gullible and inept characters on television, possibly only surpassed by that little boy named Timmy in the long-ago program "Lassie": he was the kid who kept falling into wells or wandering into burning barns with alarming frequency. Tara is just as bad, and in the space of one short season has gone from an edgy and high-strung character that I liked to one that makes me roll my eyes every time she wanders on screen to either yell at someone or gush all over "Eggs."

With an HBO drama, you know it's going to be pretty forthright as far as language and sexuality go, and Season 2 of True Blood was no exception. I'm no prude, but seeing orgy scene after orgy scene was just grotesque. Listen, I don't want to see even young, fit people engaging in group sex, much less the droopy and middle-aged. But boy, you got to see it everywhere. Out on the lawn, sprawled across the booths in Merlotte's, just a bunch of groping, gasping, ugly group sex. It was too much, way too much. By the time MaryAnn was done away with, I was ready for all those nasty people of Bon Temps to go with her. Surely there's another little town near Shreveport where Sookie could have moved?

By the last episode, I was ready for True Blood Season 3 to include the following things: 1) for Sookie to call ServPro ("Like It Never Even Happened") to get her house back to normal, because you know her Gran is probably turning over in her grave; 2) for Lafayette to make enough money selling V to send Tara to some out-of-state university; 3) for Sookie and Eric to get something going on, already; and 4) for the Newlins to get their comeuppance.

It remains to be seen if those things will happen. On to Season 3!

Really not sure about this series
Verified purchase
I really can't make up my mind about this series. First it is loosely based on the books so don't expect things to happen as theyd id in the books.The amount of sex and violence is way over the top so be warned if you don't wan t to see an orgy with every kind of perversion and violence so bad that I actually shut my eyes quite a few times then this series isn't for you. The plus side are the main actors who do a great job with what they were given. I especially like Sookie(Anna Pacquin) and Vampire Bill(Stephen Moyer) and can totally see why they married in real life. There was so much chemistry between them the screen nearly sizzles. I didn't watch this when it was on HBO, but Amazon offers the first three seasons free if you have Prime. I still don't know if I will watch the other seasons. If you aren't squeamish ( I am) and if very realistic sex scenes don't bother you then you will probably enjoy this Series, just be sure the kids are out of the house or you will be answering questions you might not be ready to answer. ( that happened with my brothers son who was asleep but got up to get water). I know this is a convoluted review but hopefully it shows just how unsure I am about the series.

The Best True blood season yet, not GP
Verified purchase
While this show is filled with vampires, shape-shifters, werewolves, and several other magical creatures, the writers have done a fantastic job creating a realistic society in which these creatures have been proven real. The resultant curiosity, turmoil, and fear is colored by prejudice and preconceived hatred, which do seem to occur whenever a new group of different or special individuals is unearthed.

However be warned that this show, in true HBO fashion, contains frequent sex scenes and violent/bloody images. This season especially has constant blood and gore, usually combined with the sex scenes. It IS about vampires afterall.

I would highly recommend watching the first season first, as most of the plot twists and revelations about characters would make absolutely no sense to someone who has not seen the show before. The easiest way to not have you freaking out and/or scratching your head confusedly at this show is to watch all of the episodes in order.

Despite almost constant gore and considerably-more-than-just-ra​cy sex scenes, I do suggest watching the series. It is not some Twilight-ensue happy fairytale land where everyone is fine with the existence of mythical creatures; this series is dark and really gives the viewer a lot to think about (once they get past the raunchy-ness). The characters are very real, and everyone seems to have their own motive and drive throughout the series. Even the characters that would usually be considered caricatures of people (or vampires) have a descriptive and usually disturbing past that slowly becomes unveiled during the series, making them more real and relatable with every episode.

WARNING: DO NOT WATCH THIS SHOW UNLESS YOU CAN HANDLE LOTS OF GORE AND RAUNCHY SEX SCENES. YOU PROBABLY DO NOT WANT TO WATCH THIS ON YOUR FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT.

Almost as Good as Season 1
Verified purchase
We're just starting our third trip through Season 2 and enjoying it very much. I would give 4-1/2 stars if I could, but it's not quite at the 5-star level of Season 1.

The show remains well-written, funny, atmospheric and full of amazing twists and turns.

The cast continues to do a marvelous job. Ryan Kwanten, who plays dim bulb Jason Stackhouse, particularly stands out to me as an amazing actor. I don't know why the award-nominating people keep overlooking him. He gets to show off in a really enjoyable plot in which he is recruited by the vampire-hating Fellowship of the Sun Church in Dallas, joined by the equally wonderful Michael McMillan as Reverend Steve Newlin and Anna Camp as Steve's wife and ministry partner Sarah. If you've ever seen Christian media, you'll recognize Steve and Sarah Newlin. In another Dallas-focused plot, Sookie, Bill, Eric and Pam investigate the kidnapping of Area 9 vampire sheriff Godric, a story line that manages to be engrossing, thought-provoking and ultimately moving. Romance blossoms for Hoyt Fortenberry, much to his possessive mother's chagrin, and Sam hooks up with a girl who seems just right for him--but appearances can be deceiving.

The reason I can't give Season 2 five stars is the Mary Ann plot back in Bon Temps, which I found to be silly and tasteless. I don't mind that the show is sexy and violent. I don't expect "family viewing." But I did get grossed out by the tedious, repetitive orgy/sacrifice scenes that neither advanced plot nor developed character.

Still, I just love watching this show and can hardly wait for the Season 3 DVD set to come out. I wish they'd get on a faster-track release schedule, so somebody would give it to me for Christmas, or Valentine's Day, or Mother's day, or something.
