True Blood Season two was amazing. Just in case you don't already know this show is for adults only! It is full of graphic sex and you do not want sensitive eyes to see. So why did I like it so much you ask? It was probably because of the focus on characters that don't get enough attention in the books. I was really hoping for the Eric in spandex scene (you will know what I am talking about if you read the books) but it was not in there but neither were most of the scenes from the book.
It was easier to stomach this season because they have strayed so far from the books it is more like an alternate world. You get to know more about Sam and Tara in this season than you do in the books and a few of the minor characters. I enjoyed the role Andy the police officer played in this season. I also have renewed faith in what can only be great and humorous development of the brainless Jason Stackhouse character.
I can't say enough good things about the second season but i will have to mention a few negatives. The first one is that there was too much sex. I mean they really could have had more story and less sex. It was just kind of outrageous the amount of naked people and sex parties you had to wade through to get to the good stuff. Don't get me wrong I am not one to freak over a sex scene of two but when you have to fit one into virtually every episode it gets old for those of us not wanting the porn experience. The second I already mentioned....NO ERIC IN SPANDEX. If you can't tell I am a big Eric Northman fan and I was not so glad that was cut out of the story. Other than that I just loved season two of True Blood.
