When it comes to TRUE BLOOD I can honestly say I was blown away by the first season, there's been more than a few vampire shows on TV over the years and well, to put it simply, most of them sucked. There were a couple good ones, KINDRED THE EMBRACED, BLADE (yes, there was a series but no, it wasn't Wesley Snipes), and much to my surprise, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES. This show was different though, it didn't shy away from sex and violence and I dug that, but then things went downhill in season 2 and then barely tread water in season 3 (loved Russell though). Last season was a mixed bag, some good, some ridiculous but all in all watchable. I sincerely hope they try better this season otherwise I just don't see this show going much further.
