DVD review: True Blood Season 4

Comment on this story


Season 4


True Blood has a fake Eric.

Let’s be honest, there isn’t a vampire as bad as Eric. Anywhere. Not even that shiny emo kid who doesn’t care too much for wolves in that mega franchise comes close.

So when you take Eric, the virile, sado-masochistic sex symbol, and turn him into a lap dog who can’t control his impulses and stays quarter-to-drooling, then we’re going to have a problem.

Am I right, ladies? Ladies?

Okay, maybe I’m alone on this one, but turning Eric into an imbecile does not redeem Sookie’s whiney self.

This season picks up a year and a bit after where season 3 ended: with Sookie finding out she’s actually a fairy. Straight off the bat, we are shown that the fairies have more to them than meets the eye.

She flees them and once back home in Bon Temps, Sookie discovers Bill is the new King Of Louisiana, which means Eric has amnesia, but is still enamoured by Sookie.

But in-between all that, they have to destroy necromancers who pose a threat to the vampires.

Best thing about this season: LaFayette discovering his powers as a medium.

Special Features: interviews with the show writers about episode back stories, post-production insight and six audio commentary options. – Helen Herimbi
