I’ll be reviewing HBO’s True Blood this season for Badass Digest. Excitement!
I appreciate the show’s fierce commitment to over-the-top blood-soaked Southern goth/fairy sex insanity, but I gotta be honest here: The real reason I campaigned to cover True Blood this season was to write about Christopher Meloni’s turn as a badass black-cloaked vampire who calls himself “The Authority” (Do ya feel the menace?).
OK, maybe Meloni’s not the only reason I want to write about True Blood this season. According to reports, this will be the final season spearheaded by show creator Alan Ball, which means the show could possibly start moving in a different direction as Season 5 progresses and the new showrunners start to influence things. I like change, and I love watching TV shows evolve over the years (for better or worse). It’ll be fun to follow the show this year to see what new tricks it has in store for us and how it plans keep us hooked for Season 6.
So join me @ Badass Digest every week after True Blood Season 5 premieres on June 10. It’ll be fun. And probably a little dirty.
