True Blood’s 5th season is strong. much better than last season. It definitely deserves a 6th season (at least!) Lovin True Blood! Yay

I disagree. I loved Season 4 and find Season 5 a bit of disappointment. I just don’t find this internal power struggle with the Vampires that interesting. The only storylines that save it for me are about the “shifters” ; the killing of the supernaturals by the “Obama” gang and Sookie trying to find out who killed her parents.

I’ll still watch but I am not as stoked about this show this year.

BLEH! It’s time to drive a stake in this one.
Soo tired of the forced relationships and “ooo, it’s a new booger!” plotline. Die and be done with it.
