True Blood -- A Beginner's Guide Before Season 3

If you've convinced someone to watch this year that hasn't watched before this is helpful

With only a couple days until the season 3 premiere of True Blood, there are no doubt a lot of people out there wondering what all the hype is about. After all, True Blood, like the Sopranos and Dexter, is a cable show, and not everyone has access to pay channels like HBO and Showtime. So, with those potential fans in mind, here’s a run down of everything you need to know as we begin season 3 of True Blood.

What the Hell is This Show About Anyway?

It’s easy to buy into the notion that True Blood is yet another vampire/werewolf show, designed to capitalize on the popularity of Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight series. The comparisons of the two series, both based on popular novels, stop at vampires and supernatural creatures.

One of the show’s unique features is that it takes place on both a global and local level.

Globally, True Blood imagines a world in which vampires have come “out of the coffin” and announced their presence to the world. A Japanese company has created a synthetic blood beverage, called “Tru Blood,” which provides all the nutritional benefits of real blood without the unfortunate consequences to “donors.” As a result, vampires are out and about at night, enjoying their “lives” as real citizens.

A New York minute with 'True Blood' star Deborah Ann Woll

Deborah Ann Woll sinks her fangs into the new season of "True Blood," starting tonight on HBO. She stars as Jessica Hamby, a teen vampire who struggles with her identity. The Brooklyn-born actress, 25, never had that problem.
"I knew coming out of the womb that [acting] was what I was supposed to do," Woll says. At about 14, she began enrolling in acting programs around the city and at her Brooklyn Heights high school, the Packer Collegiate Institute. It's paid off. Besides "True Blood," Woll has three films in the works.
What can we expect from Jessica this season?
[Producer] Alan Ball has said before that this season is about identity, and I think that's what's happening for Jessica. It's a lot about discovering more about my vampiric nature versus my human nature and what's the right balance for Jessica. Bill [Stephen Moyer] has chosen a very mainstream human kind of existence, and Eric [Alexander Skarsgard] has chosen a very vampire existence. Every member of the undead has to find their own personal [path], And Jessica's working her way through that this season.

‘True Blood’ returns with even more characters and freaky lines

Basically just another review for the upcoming season -BUT there are a couple of interesting goodies in there...

I’ve decided that “True Blood” is the freakiest show on TV — much freakier than “Lost,” freakier even than “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”

But as the third season, which begins Sunday, revealed its many new features to me, I also realized that series creator Alan Ball has stepped up his game, compared to where he was at the start of the third season of his last HBO series.

That would be “Six Feet Under.” You may recall that show had a stellar first season, followed by a wobbly sophomore season, and then the wheels fell off. Like “Lost,” “Six Feet Under” eventually recovered and finished strongly.

As a graduation gift, HBO gave Ball the chance to adapt the Charlaine Harris novels about Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), a waitress in a bayou bar who can hear people’s thoughts, set in a near-future era when vampires have “come out of the coffin” thanks to synthetic blood substitutes

Metacritic ranks the best Vampire TV shows

Only some of these shows suck

Sesame Street doesn’t count
Is it possible that Sesame Street’s debonair Count von Count may have predisposed the current generation of TV watchers to regard most vampires as gorgeous rather than grotesque? Almost all of the television Undead are portrayed with some level of allure; for the hundreds of disposable vamps staked by Buffy the Vampire Slayer, there’s always the dangerously attractive Angel, Drusilla, and Spike.
ImageThe classic vampiric traits of sensuality, immortality, violence, and angst can add appeal to almost any story. Even relatively obscure shows inspire devotion, with fans of Forever Knight’s vampire detective Nick Knight or Blood Ties’ Henry Fitzroy showing up to passionately plead their case in the comments of the omnipresent Internet polls asking readers if they prefer the Zeitgeist-dominating vamps of Twilight, The Vampire Diaries, or True Blood.
Modern vampires quickly made the jump from literature to film, but their small-screen presence has increased sharply as of late. Dark Shadows began featuring a recurring romantic undead character in 1966, and vampires began to manifest in programs such as ’70s supernatural detective show Kolchack: The Night Stalker and Dr. Who.

"True Blood" returns with even sharper teeth

"The one time in my entire life I thought I was happy, I was a zombie." -- Tara (Rutina Wesley),"True Blood"

Sometimes I wonder if I'll wake up from these happy, golden years as a TV critic and say the same thing. But then the third season screeners of "True Blood" (returns 9 p.m. Sunday, June 13) arrive in the mail, and I forget all of that and instead plummet into a world so dark and dirty and hilarious and unnerving that it glamours me into a placid state, then leaves me wanting more.

How does Alan Ball do it? His vampire tale serves up the stickiest, filthiest, most delicious debauchery imaginable with reckless abandon. Whether Bill is throwing a flaming lamp at someone's head or Eric is biting into a foe and then apologizing to his hostess by saying, bashfully, "I got your rug all wet," whether Tara is weeping snottily into a bottle of Wild Turkey or slugging some racist rednecks in the face, whether Sam is earnestly discussing his roots with some strangers or ripping off his clothes and running through the woods as a dog, this show is filled with the kinds of curveballs that keep you slightly off-kilter, unsettled and unprepared for what might happen next.
