Description
Returning for its fifth season, True Blood is HBO’s sexy, scary, wildly entertaining drama
series from Oscar®- and Emmy®-winner Alan Ball (Six Feet Under) and based on the
Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. In addition to returning cast favorites –
human/faerie waitress Sookie Stackhouse, her vampire suitors Bill Compton and Eric
Northman, soul-searching pal Tara, shape-shifting boss Sam, rakish brother Jason,
clairvoyant Lafayette and teen-vamp Jessica – Season 5 introduces a whole new wave of
otherworldly characters. There’s Vampire Guardian Roman, president of the Vampire
Authority, who wants co-existence between humans and vampires; vampire zealot
Salome (yes, the Salome), intent on recreating the world in God’s vampyric image;
Authority Chancellor Nora, who shares the same maker as Eric; werewolves J.D. and
Martha, who want a reluctant Alcide to take his rightful place as packmaster; and many

more. Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, True Blood Season 5 goes deep
into the battle between the Vampire Authority and “vampire fundamentalists” – a
political power play whose outcome could decide not only the fate of Sookie and her
Bon Temps friends, but of all human existence.


Customer Reviews
The Bon Temps gang returns for the fifth season of HBO's "True Blood". I am a colossal
fan of the show, having seen every episode since the pilot. Like every show, "True
Blood" has had a few ups and downs in terms of writing. Seasons one and two were the
show at its best, in my opinion. Season three was a lot of fun, but suffered from
cluttered storylines and tonal problems. But, season four -- although it still can't top
season one or two -- was a solid return to form (and I can't understand the bashing it
regularly receives on here from other fans).

So, how does season five compare? I found this year to be even better than the last; the
most compelling reason for this is the fundamental shaking up of all things comfortable
and familiar on the show. All of the close relationships have been compromised or
changed or they've grown apart: Sookie/Bill/Eric, Sookie/Tara, Pam/Eric, Jason/Hoyt,
Tara/Lafayette, etc. This was the year of the Break Up (friendships as well as romances).
But, the interesting thing is how this made way for all sorts of new and compelling
bonds to form: Bill/Eric, Pam/Tara, Jason/Jessica.
