I don't know why I keep watching this, but here's my piece on this season so far:
I haven't seen the previous True Blood seasons before last,and I'm not really interested in doing so, but i've been told that they're pretty rushed up affairs to dive right into the new season's story on the first episodes. But the first episode of this season was perhaps one of the most heinous tv watching experiences of my life.
While this whole Marny/spirit of old peasant witch story is rather hokey, I find it just slightly interesting only because I am ROOTING for her, Tara, and the other people in the witch circle. Vampires do get away with so much intimidation and physical abuse of these people, and how they keep hanging around and willy nilly working with vampires after all the crazy shit they do to them has always boggled my mind (besides the lame romantic crutches they use to excuse them). I'd be more impressed if it was just Marny doing this "resistance" without the Antonia ghost, but oh well. And when peace was promised, Eric goes out and rips out one of the harmless wicka's heart to scare them all into giving up. I don't know anyone sees this show and think the main gang of vampires are anyone we're supposed to attach ourselves to, let alone root for.
The rest of the show's storylines are so fucking useless and bad I don't feel like addressing them.
Yeah, I've been hoping the same thing. Actually, I don't think I've ever watched this show as it was meant to be watched. I always imagine it's more about abusive relationships (or just general inequality), it's more enjoyable when you look at it that way. I remember most people were saying the vampires and other mythical beings in the show were suppose to represent minorities, but I think they have it backwards.
