I read all of the “True Blood” books in the not-so-distant past. I thought the book series started off strong, but ended on a rather weak note. But it has nothing on the TV series. I will not be sticking this one out until the end. I found myself reading magazines while watching episodes from season 5 and decided to hang it up. The show has quite a lot of differences from the book, so I was hoping that it would have a stronger plot, but it did not. Dare I say, I think it’s even worse than the books. I did enjoy the first season or two, but season 5 was just awful. I think it’s time for “True Blood” to meet the “true death”.
