It seems to be a growing consensus that HBO’s “True Blood” continues to break its own rules and that one of the only watchable factors is all of the sex, alongside a dabble of gore. Yet, people stay connected and give strength to this otherwise mediocre cable drama that’s costing you $30 a month to watch (you could do better with your money). After last night’s episode, HBO previewed Episode 5.05, “Let’s Boot and Rally”.

In Episode #53 (5.05): “Let’s Boot and Rally”: “With time running short, Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) enlist Sookie (Anna Paquin) to probe for clues on Russell’s (Denis O’Hare) hiding place. Unable to deal with the demon magic inside him, Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) calls out to Jesus’ (Kevin Alejandro) spirit for help. Patrick Devins (Scott Foley) and Terry (Todd Lowe) are held hostage in the bunker of their Iraq War buddy Brian Eller (Brian Geraghty). Jason (Ryan Kwanten) wakes to a disturbing dream; Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) gives Tara (Rutina Wesley) advice on adjusting to vampire life; Sam (Sam Trammell) visits Luna (Janina Gavankar) with bad news.” (Written by Angela Robinson; directed by Michael Lehmann.) Playdates: July 8, 11, 12 and 14

    Hey mr d if you are actually not watching what are you basing this opinion on? Also I thought the “consensus” was that season 5 was better than last. Please stop hating on the continued success of TB. It is going against your prediction of last year and that’s just the way it is. I also doubt people are buying HBO solely for TB as there are a lot of great shows year round on the channel. True Blood just happens to get the most viewers. In light of the “entertainment” your brand has released thus far you have no right to claim the higher ground here. Not by a longshot.

    @Nothing333 I totally agree. This season of True Blood is fantastic; I’ve loved every season tho. Season 3 was a little weak in my opinion, but it wasn’t BAD. When I like a show, I like a show. For all the flaws and everything, people will still watch. It’s hard to find any flaws in True Blood, though. This show is pure entertainment, and that’s the point.

    I don’t know why all the hating on True Blood. It is an amazing series…I even loved last season. But Season 5 is only like 3 or 4 episodes in and if you are not watching it, then you have no right to have a negative comment. Season 5 is off to an AMAZING start.

    as someone who disliked season 3 and found season 4 just ok, season 5 is VERY good! this is the best season (imo) since season 1. i’m back to actually looking forward to each ep.

    Agreed to all comments….also good news TB fans, season 6 has been officially confirmed today!

    • Nothing333

      The haters will hate but they just can’t make the show go away.
