*CONTAINS SPOILERS*

What I liked:

  • Bill and Sookie finally have a little more physical chemistry developing between them, it isn’t such an awkward thing to watch them together anymore.
  • The humour in this one was pretty sharp.
  • Pam and Eric when they are together. They are exceptionally entertaining – always sniping at each other, always loving each other, though goodness knows neither will admit it.
  • Seeing more Alexander Skarsgård as Eric Northman in this one. He is the one character that is really interesting, and I feel he was underused in the last season. He is the one that most people seem to love to see more of – his ruthlessness, his history, his attitude, all of it.
  • Eric and Sookie’s exchange about using words the other doesn’t understand.
  • The relationship between Hoyt and Jessica – it was really sweet.
  • Allan Hyde as Godric. He was truly amazing and very well done. His character had quite a bit of depth, even though he was only a brief part of what happened. Hyde was perfect to play him, he had that looks of having seen the world, yet he was still so beautiful. Big fan, me.
  • The relationship that Godric and Eric share, as well as the past. Both are very deep, both very sad. Eric is very loyal to Godric, which is something I like, and Godric is definitely very changed after two thousand years of living.

What I didn’t like:

  • The maenad having such a huge role.
  • The town’s craziness. It was fine, then it just got freaking stupid. It went from funny to annoying, and really, really quickly.
  • The whole way that Bill and Sookie “have a child” so to speak with Jessica. They make it so much like that and it just really shouldn’t be.
  • Eric’s fascination with Sookie is finally here – but it is out of nowhere and not properly explained.
  • I am still not enamoured with the wrong teeth being the fangs… small thing to grate on a person, but it does.

Again, another pretty decent season. I loved getting to see more of Eric and Pam in this one, they are worth the watch all the time. I felt extremely bad for Lafayette and all the things that he went through, he was so broken when all was said and done. Maryann annoyed me, seeing as she was supposed to have an important role, but not that important that it became a whole season’s worth of stuff. Watching how it was implemented was funny initially, all these people going cooked and not remembering, then it rapidly progressed to being a drag. Drifting back into Eric’s past of being the honourable Viking who turned was something I thoroughly enjoyed, and Godric as his maker was simply perfect. Eric really did actually feel something for his Maker, though it is something that confused Sookie endlessly. I think the thing with Godric and Eric was far better in the show than the books – Ocella was just annoying, and the history didn’t quite resonate the same. Jason’s retarded decision to join the Fellowship of the Sun proved to be incredibly funny, as Jason most certainly either didn’t attend Bible studies or Church, or just really didn’t absorb what was said. Thinking that Moses walked on water and wondering who Judas was really had me cracking up. Hoyt and Jessica meeting was just the most adorable thing, and he really seems to have pulled the ridiculously annoying side out of her, which was pretty cool. Steve and Sarah Newlin really made my stomach turn. He was just not… a man (I cannot explain this enough – any tying a pastel sweater around your shoulders does not help matter whatsoever), and Sarah was such a loose woman. Anyway, as far as it goes, some things were straightened out in this season and were most certainly enjoyable. You have to laugh at the cheese True Blood provides.

    Dearest JB,

    I hate to dog on someone just for the sake of it but the guy who played Pastor Steve and the character itself are one of the worst things I have ever hated.

    Honestly, I remember three things clearly about this season: 1) Jason being hilariously stupid at the Fellowship of the Sun, 2) Eric and Godric and that heartbreaking rooftop scene, and 3) Eric getting his hair cut, which I might just have to proclaim the best TB moment ever. Or at the very least the best Eric/Pam moment ever. So good.

      LOL gosh he was terrible there! And that scene was so sad 😦 Bwahahaha, I must say, that was incredibly entertaining hehehe. Glad there are some good things to remember from this… before it started going downhill – rapidly.

        It’s worth finishing, if just to laugh your ass off at Eric and Pam! I finished it all eventually just to say that I have, but I can totally get where you are coming from lol. Took me years to even look at the show again.

  6. Too much of the maenad for Season 2. That really made me not like this season too much. I’m glad I gave it a chance for Season 3 though 🙂
