True Blood Returns
On Sunday, HBO’s hit show “True Blood” hit the small screen to premiere its 3rd season. I’m not going to lie, even though I’m not as really into the intense vampire phase that the rest of the country (/world) seems to be, but I like this show! It is absolutely insane.
The start of this season picks up immediately where last season left off. Can’t remember where that was? Yeah, I didn’t either. For the first time, I felt that HBO didn’t give us a sufficient recap of what went on last season. Don’t get me wrong, the summary was okay (all that bizarre and bewitching stuff with Maryann), but didn’t you think that there were details that we were expected to remember without being reminded?
This isn’t a network show, so we have much longer than a 3-month hiatus every time the season ends! I think Season 2 of “True Blood” finished up on September 13 of 2009. Considering the show just premiered again on June 13…come on! How are we supposed to remember every single thing that happened in an hour-long episode of a TV show that aired 9 months ago!
Needless to say, I was confused for a good 20 minutes of the episode. Actually…I still don’t really know who that guy is that Jessica is dealing with (the dead one) and why he is at the house. I hope that’s not a major spoiler, but I honestly can’t remember! I even looked up the plot of the Season 2 finale, and I’m still a little bit lost.
Next time, HBO, just add an extra 30 seconds so that I can be caught up. Maybe I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed, but I shouldn’t be dumbfounded, right?! Oh, also, next time, less Evan Rachel Wood and more…anything else.
