In advance of the release of True Blood, Season 2, on DVD May 25, the-trades.com reviewed the the series and the five disc set. I won’t recount the entire season here, as most of us have already seen it, but I will focus on the site’s review and the DVD set’s features.
The-Trades.com cites their highlights of the season, including:
1. Sookie‘s discovery of another telepath in Dallas
2. Eric‘s opinion of human children just before asking Sophie-Anne a favor
3. Bill‘s reunion with his maker, Lorena
While the site gave a very thorough and concise rundown of Season 2, I think it fell short when recounting Season 2 hits.
There were several well acted arcs and scenes beyond those noted above:
1. Jason‘s slow descent into the Fellowship of the Sun and his interactions with Steve, Sarah, and Luke (who could forget when Sarah tells him that God wants them to be together or when she tells him they must confess to Steve?)
2. Sam‘s shift in front of the deranged, brain-washed townsfolk (and Jason and Andy‘s reactions)
3. Sookie‘s blood bond with Eric, and the effect it has on her, in addition to her affinity to and compassion for Godric
There are too many more to recount! Luckily, the Season 2 disc set will let you relive your favorite scenes again and again. In addition to all 12 episdoes, the set also includes commentary on episodes 2, 7, 8, 10, 11, and 12 from all the major players including Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Ryan Kwanten, Rutina Wesley, Sam Trammell, Nelsan Ellis, and Alexander Skarsgard. Bonus features also include Fellowship of the Sun sermons designed to incite the vampire hate in you led by either Reverend Steve Newlin or his wife, Sarah; and, “The Vampire Report” news magazine covering all current events involving vampires with a commercial for the American Vampire League and public service announcements geared toward vampires (have you been tested for Hepatitis D?). All in all, a well conceived season with a series of bonus features designed to enhance the existing episode content and further your entrenchment into the supernatural world of Sookie Stackhouse.
Season 2 will be released on Standard DVD, Blu-Ray disc, and in digital download format on May 25 and will be available from the HBO Store, Amazon, and iTunes.
