Anna Paquin & Stephen Moyer in 'True Blood'

Anna Paquin & Stephen Moyer in 'True Blood'

“True Blood’ is finally back on-air with their second season kicking off … I may have had to watch the first episode boot-leg off the Internet, cause I don’t have HBO … but, I must say, it was a spectacular start. I forgot how much I love Anna Paquin in this series and the complex stories the show brings to the small screen.

The first season left us hanging with Bill (Sookie’s vamp) “turning” a 17-year-old girl named Jessica into a vampire as punishment for killing another of their kind … Sookie’s brother, Jason, finding Jesus with the anti-vampire church … a mysterious woman named MaryAnn helping Sookie’s best-friend Tara after a DUI … Tara’s cousin LaFayette being attacked by a mysterious creature … and Sookie, Tara and Detective Bellefleur finding a dead body in his car.

After watching the first episode I really have no fucking idea what’s going on and I’m loving it! Of course, you find out who the dead person is in the car. Let’s just say that Tara freaks out and it does not help having a telepathic friend nearby when you’re freaking out in your head. Rutina Wesley is fantastic in this series … I hope her character continues to grow in a mature direction.

There are a few road-bumps in Sookie and Bill’s relationship … with Sookie finding out that Bill killed her pedophile Uncle and keeping his vamp muse Jessica a secret from her … I just feel Anna Paquin is a terrific actress and the relationship she has with Stephen Moyer in the show is like strawberries and chocolate … Delicious!

Personally, I think Jason is one of the best characters in the show and his involvement in the Fellowship of the Sun (anti-vamp church) is interesting since his sister is dating a vampire. I also think it’s fascinating because he’s not really in the church to hate vampires, but to find answers for what has happened to him in the past year… Plus, Ryan Kwanten is flipping hot!

Oh, and you have no fucking idea what MaryAnn is doing in this show?!? Why is she obsessed with Tara and what is her relationship with Sam Merlotte? I hope they tell us soon, cause she is a fucking trip … Nevertheless, I’m really excited to see Evan Rachel Wood on the series (she’s one of my favorite actresses) and I’m interested to see what they do with Deborah Ann Woll’s character Jessica … Love this show, it may only be 12 episodes a season, but what a fucking ride!
