True Blood: The Complete Fifth Season (Blu-ray Review)
3 June 2013
Conclusion: For a season that disappointed me often, I’m still willing to give it rather high marks. I liked past seasons where Eric and Bill fought over Sookie. It’s weird to me that Bill is consumed with Lillith and the authority and rarely seems to care about Sookie. Pam in her yellow Walmart sweatsuit make the season worth watching for me. The melodrama needs to be kept in check and the writers would do well to simplify a lot of the stories.

Conclusion: Creator Alan Ball stepped down as showrunner at the end of this season. Maybe he was trying to tell too many stories before he left, but this season is a step down from what came before. It's still a fun and entertaining series, but not as engrossing and gripping and the earlier seasons. Fans should still have a good time watching the drama and horror unfold in Bon Temps in any case. . What Do You Think?
Conclusion: 'True Blood' returns with another season of vampires, werewolves, fairies, and all manner of supernatural freaks learning to live with one another. Although not as strong as the first two seasons, this fifth installment is an improvement over its predecessor, thanks to the inclusion of the Vampire Authority, brief as it is.
