TV: Check Out 19 Incredibly Boring Images From “True Blood”‘s Fifth Season


It’s sort of like self sabotage to tell you right in the headline how boring the following images are, but maybe your interest is piqued by the idea of looking at 19 absolutely boring images from HBO’s forthcoming fifth season of “True Blood.” Sure, I started last season as their #1 fan, and ended hating it more than “Heroes,” but I still think these photos suck – pun intended. At least HBO didn’t unload 19 images of Eric, Bill and Alcide with their shirts off… (To be clear, the issue isn’t that the show is like Twilight, it’s that it abandoned their initial/supportive viewership and started to cater to the female crowd.)

Anyways, inside you’ll find the full gallery featuring new looks at cast members Stephen Moyer, Alexander Skarsgard, Anna Paquin, Nelsan Ellis, Deborah Ann Woll and Kristin Bauer von Straten, along with newbies Christopher Meloni and Scott Foley and Lucy Griffiths.

“True Blood” returns to HBO Sunday, June 10 at 9 PM ET/PT.

    The photos don’t show much but I guess that’s a good thing. Don’t want to see everything before the season airs. I have a good feeling about season 5. Seems like they’re focusing on the vampires again, and that’s the shows strength. Plus, Russell Edgington and Steve Newland are back, not to mention Chris Meloni !

    No offense but you were never the #1 fan. A fair weather fan maybe at best. The photos aren’t great but certainly are worth the vitriol you’re wasting on them.

    I wouldn’t mind giving this season a chance. I’ve stuck with the show since season 1 I might as well hold on for the entire ride.

  • Ultrazilla

    I really don’t see how this show “caters to women”, but then again, the book series it’s based on has a larger female fan base…so why would that be a bad thing? True Blood is HARDLY Twilight, so the whole catering to women thing is nonsense.

    The irony of Mr. D complaining about a show pandering to a female audience, and yet his articles featuring actresses have sexy half-naked pictures of them.

    Am I supposed to be frightened by vamped out Steve Newlin?
