So, totally by accident, my wife and I decided to revisit the first episode of "True Blood" which was one of our weekly favorites back in 2008 (!) when it first appeared. A week later we are midway through season 3 (thank you, Amazon Prime!) and absolutely loving it, again :)
I have a vague memory of the wheels coming off in the back half of the show (season 5ish, maybe?) but the first three seasons have just been wonderful - a very strong cast with a lot of detail paid to each and every character. Fantastic music, humor and a solid horror scene or two (or three or four) thrown in and you've got the ingredients for a really great story which just thrives in the "binge" mode. (Also, worth noting, the T&A, both male and female, is solid throughout as well ;) )
If you haven't given it a whirl in a while, check it out again. A lot of fun and really well done!
