HBO Home Entertainment is promising an immersive fan experience with its Blu-ray Disc version of True Blood: The Complete Third Season, offering nearly double the bonus content found with the second season.
The bulk of the extras come with the show’s enhanced viewing mode, which offers such features as character perspectives, in which characters from the show (in this case Jessica, Andy, Tommy and Alcide) pop up to discuss a scene with the audience; a flashback/flash forward mode, in which past or future scenes that relate to the current scene are played; as well as vampire histories and character bios. Viewers can skip from bonus event to bonus event.
New to the third season is “True Blood Lines,” an interactive on-screen guide that highlights the connections between the many worlds in the series.
These Blu-ray extras come in addition to the standard-DVD extras, which include a featurette about the show’s use of werewolves; "True Blood" Post Mortem vignettes; end-of-episode guides for bonus helpings of “True Blood”; Snoop Dogg’s “Oh Sookie” music video; and seven audio commentaries.
The five-disc set is due May 31 at $79.98 (the DVD version is $59.99).

Anna Paquin breathed a sigh of relief on Friday after her husband and 'True Blood' co-star, Stephen Moyer, survived a dangerous crash behind the wheel of a race car in Southern California.
The 41-year-old actor rushed to be a guest driver at the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race, according to RadarOnline, on very little sleep.
Before the race, Moyer had reportedly been working on the set of HBO's 'True Blood' until 6 a.m. Friday, after which his only downtime was one hour of sleep that morning, plus a power nap around lunchtime Friday.
Moyer's crash occurred after a sharp bend when his car plowed into a tire barrier, rolling his car. The Long Beach Press-Telegram reports that his vehicle did a 360-degree flip before landing back on its tires. Moyer walked away, uninjured, and even gave a thumbs-up to the crowd.
He later told the press, "I want to apologize to the rest of the drivers for ruining everyone's qualifying session."
