Product Description

Product Description

True Blood: The Complete Second Season (BD)

Amazon.ca

True Blood's second season, with episodes involving a new cast of monsters invading Louisiana swamp town Bon Temps, is notably gorier and more camp than the first season. While thematically the central focus in these 12 exciting episodes still revolves around faith and loyalty, these questions are complicated by displays of pagan ritual and obsession. Though the vampire/human relationship dilemma continues, spearheaded by lovers Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), there is less emphasis on addiction to V, or vampire blood, and more time dedicated to outsiders whose supernatural talents make some episodes feel like superhero battles.

Episode 1, "Nothing but the Blood," sets the gory example with a brutal opening scene in which the local shaman has been eviscerated. While gruesome murders continue throughout the season, we become familiar with a new femme fatale, Maryann Forrester (Michelle Forbes), who hosts bacchanalia, such as the one in episode 4 ("Shake and Fingerpop") that gives Bon Temps a collective hangover. Also developing in this season are relationships between Sookie and Bill's vampire colleagues Eric (Alexander Skarsgård), Eric's master Godric, and a vampire queen who plays Yahtzee throughout episode 11 ("Frenzy"). The ever-increasing vampire interest in Sookie leads to her questioning her own supernatural psychic identity, especially in the final episode ("Beyond Here Lies Nothin'"), a semi-ridiculous, over-the-top segment that is more humorous than scary. Also corny but funny are the episodes featuring Fellowship of the Sun zealots Steve and Sarah Newlin (Michael McMillian and Anna Camp), and Jason Stackhouse's evangelical dedication to them (with Ryan Kwanten as Stackhouse). Perhaps the best episodes are those dedicated to the endangered plights of Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell), Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis), and Tara (Rutina Wesley). New characters, like Tara's lover, Eggs (Mehcad Brooks), and the young, tempestuous vampire Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll), also add greatly to an already fabulous cast. Though the extras in this DVD set, "The Vampire Report (Special Edition)" and "Fellowship of the Sun: Reflections of Light," offer lighthearted, pseudo-documentary fun, they feel quaint next to the many wonderful episodes of this horror serial. --Trinie Dalton --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Format: Blu-ray
After watching Season 2, and especially the Maryann storyline, I was left wondering "where the heck did that come from?" I kind of got after the first few orgy scenes that Maryann wasn't what she seemed -- no need to hit me over the head with it. I don't consider myself a prude, but when the Maryann storyline descended into the realm of the ridiculous, I got awfully bored and started wondering how the actors could put up with such uninspired scripting.

One of the bright spots in Season 2 is the development of the Eric Northman character and his relationship with Sookie, and in the end I found myself fast-forwarding through the mindless orgy and party scenes to the Dallas storyline.

Since the Sookie Stackhouse novels themselves are written from a first-person perspective, I can understand the temptation of the TrueBlood writers to "flesh out" some of the other characters' activities, and even to create new characters/storylines that did not exist in the novels. However, Season 2 did so at the expense of the novels' core plot/character development and as a result lost a lot of the magic that was present in Season 1.

Another awesome - but faster and crazier - roller coaster ride of pure escapism for TB fans: intrigue, gore, sex, and loads of dark humor. These characters are so well written, you can't help but be interested in every one of them - no matter how minor. Loved the way each episode ending left us hungry for more. Cannot wait for Season Three!

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By S. Dosunmu on May 29 2010
Format: DVD
I think the key element to this brilliant series is attention to detail. Alan Ball, his staff as well as the brilliant actors not only create a world that is entirely believable but also go to great lengths to capture the internal conflict and emotions each character is going through. This season was all about coming of age. From Jessica discovering her new "body" and lifestyle to the powerful influence Maryann has on Bon temps and the people in it; each episode leads you to a climactic finally that leaves the viewer wanting more.
As someone who has followed the series first, I am now reading the books by the orginal creator Charlaine Harris.
It is safe to say that the television series & the book are closely related. What I love the most is that both Charlaine Harris and Alan Ball have remained true to the vampire mythology. For instance, when vampires are exposed to the sun, they burn and eventually evaporate unlike another series (Twilight) which alter that they glow.
Check out Season 3 premiering June 13th on HBO & HBO Canada.

Couldn't wait for the second season to come on DVD and I finally got it!!! I finally know what happened to Lafayette (my favorite character) and all the happy gang in Bon Temps. Can't wait for the third season to come out on DVD. (In case you're wondering, I don't get the channel the show plays on and I couldn't wait for the French version to play on regular TV...). Love it love it love it!!!

The first few episodes are a bit slow. We don't see why Maryam's caracter is there and where it's going. It picks up later on with a finish like an action movie. So it's a little bit different from the first season. There are still events that are not explained, even at the end... loose ends.
