I covered HBO’s “True Blood” as long as they were sending me review copies, and as it turned out they only sent me the first five episodes and then left me high and dry. I guess I could give it a second look when it hits DVD and Blu-ray on May 19 and catch up on the eight episodes I missed prior to the upcoming Season 2 premiere on June 14th, but we’ll have to wait an see on that since HBO also never sends me review copies of their TV DVDs and I have so many as is I really only end up buying stuff I already know I want. I am not a huge blind buy consumer.
Nevertheless, “True Blood” is returning to HBO on June 14 and they have sent over ten preview images from the upcoming season including photos of Anna Paquin who plays the lead in the film named Sookie Stackhouse as the story of vampires in Bon Temps, Louisiana unfolds. You also get a look at Alexander Skarsgard (seen in the photo above) who plays Eric Northam, the oldest vampire to be introduced in the series while I was watching. Skarsagard is also rumored to be the star in the upcoming Thor comic book adaptation for Kenneth Branagh in the title role.
