True Blood

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Mon­day, 8.30pm, Show­case In sea­son five last year, the plot of Alan Ball’s True Blood de­vel­oped more threads than an­gel hair pasta. It was over­whelm­ing. There was so much go­ing on and any­one who wasn’t ac­tu­ally some­one else was pre­tend­ing to be some­one else. How­ever, in this sea­son six de­but, the mad­den­ing pace has slowed. Sure, vam­pire Bill (Stephen Moyer) is some­one dif­fer­ent. He’s still Bill but has in­cor­po­rated the pow­ers of an an­cient fig­ure from the vam­pire bi­ble and can get staked and shrug it off like that liq­uid me­tal dude in Ter­mi­na­tor 2: Judg­ment Day. As al­ways there is plenty of room for the mas­sively built Al­cide (Joe Man­ganiello) to get his kit off while turn­ing into a wolf; and Sookie (Anna Paquin) is now so good with her fairy light she can turn it on and off like a torch.
