Never Met a Zombi I Didn’t Like…

TRUE BLOOD Season 2 Trailer shown at Comic-con

HBO unleashed this exclusive look trailer for its hit Sunday night vampire show True Blood, unfolding the events for the rest of season two. While I really enjoyed the first season, the program has really hit its stride. This year True Blood is wilder, more mysterious and certainly more suspenseful. It just feels bigger and badder.

One of the fun things about its success is seeing a cast of relatively unknown actors (other than Anna Panquin) get to shine. Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton), Alexander Skargard (Eric Northman), Rutina Wesley (Tara Thorton), Sam Trammell (Sam Merlotte), Ryan Kwanten (Jason Stackhouse), Nelsan Ellis (Lafayette Reynolds) and Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica Hamby) have all contributed solid work, making True Blood the television water cooler show of the moment. Veteran actress Michelle Forbes’ character, Maryann Forrester, has really opened up the storyline. Her character’s mysterious nature has fostered much intrigue as things continue to move forward. This show is now on a serious creative roll.

The interesting thing about True Blood is that I can’t make an argument that it works in any one conventional way, simply because the show is not conventional at all. As I said before, it reminds me of David Lynch’s cult phenomenon Twin Peaks which aired two decades ago on ABC. Like Twin Peaks, True Blood is different, very different, from standard TV fare and it fascinates week after week.
As for this new trailer- it’s excellent. Take a LOOK.

Plus here’s the panel discussion with the cast at Comic-con last week.
