Waiting Sucks and HBO Keeps Fans Wanting More:

Season 5 poster RomanEarly in the life of its series True Blood, HBO hit upon the simple but clever tag line of ‘Waiting Sucks’. Now, as anticipation over the June 10th premiere of Season 5 grows, fans find that they ‘Crave More’. HBO has fueled the excitement with titillating teaser videos; some provide glimpses behind the scenes, while others are simply humorous promotion.

Two recently released teasers provide peeks into two separate story lines. Both videos give hints as to what to expect from characters and plot, while still managing to raise additional questions that make fans eager to tune in to the show.

One of these two recent videos features Sam (Sam Trammell) and Luna (Janina Gavankar). Sitting on a sofa, Luna cries while Sam tries to lend comfort. The dialog tells fans that someone has died mysteriously. An unexpected, unidentified sound captures their attention just as the scene ends on a menacing note. Who died? How did they die? Are Sam and Luna in danger, too? What was that sound?

What do you think?

Another recent teaser video has Terry (Todd Lowe) and Patrick (Scott Foley) being held at gunpoint and handcuffed. They know this person, but fans don’t – yet. The scene ends with the unknown character asking if anything had followed them there. Who is the new character? Why is he cuffing Patrick and Terry? What is it that might have followed them?

Any guesses?

HBO also uses humor in its teaser videos. ‘Don’t Cry, It’s Back’ uses bloody tears and scenes of character anguish to promote Season 5. The video is a montage of True Blood characters crying. The clips are assembled in a way that makes it seem they are sad over the lack of new True Blood episodes.

Which one is your favorite?
