Audio Commentary

Real Blood's 2nd season, with episodes including a brand-new cast of beasts attacking Louisiana overload town Bon Temps, is notably gorier and more camp than the very first season. While thematically the main focus in these 12 interesting episodes still revolves around faith and loyalty, these concerns are complicated by displays of pagan ritual and fascination. Though the vampire/human relationship dilemma continues, spearheaded by enthusiasts Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), there is less emphasis on addiction to V, or vampire blood, and more time dedicated to outsiders whose supernatural skills make some episodes seem like superhero fights.

Episode 1, "Nothing but the Blood," sets the gory example with a ruthless opening scene where the local shaman has been devitalized. While gruesome murders continue throughout the season, we end up being knowledgeable about a brand-new femme fatale, Maryann Forrester (Michelle Forbes), who hosts bacchanalia, such as the one in episode 4 ("Shake and Fingerpop") that provides Bon Temps a collective hangover. Also developing in this season are relationships in between Sookie and Bill's vampire colleagues Eric (Alexander Skarsgård), Eric's master Godric, and a vampire queen who plays Yahtzee throughout episode 11 ("Frenzy"). The ever-increasing vampire interest in Sookie causes her questioning her own supernatural psychic identity, particularly in the last episode ("Beyond Here Lies Nothin'"), a semi-ridiculous, over-the-top section that is more funny than terrifying. Also corny but funny are the episodes including Fellowship of the Sun zealots Steve and Sarah Newlin (Michael McMillian and Anna Camp), and Jason Stackhouse's evangelical dedication to them (with Ryan Kwanten as Stackhouse). Maybe the very best episodes are those dedicated to the endangered predicaments of Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell), Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis), and Tara (Rutina Wesley). New characters, like Tara's fan, Eggs (Mehcad Brooks), and the young, tempestuous vampire Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll), also add considerably to an already fantastic cast. Though the additionals in this DVD set, "The Vampire Report (Special Edition)" and "Fellowship of the Sun: Reflections of Light," offer lighthearted, pseudo-documentary fun, they feel quaint next to the lots of remarkable episodes of this scary serial.--Trinie Dalton
