Blu-ray of the Day: True Blood – The Complete Second Season

Directors: Daniel Minahan, Michael Lehmann, Scott Winant, John Dahl, Michael Ruscio, Adam Davidson, Michael Cuesta.
Creator: Alan Ball.
Score: Nathan Barr.

True Blood creator Alan Ball spiked his V juice with too much gay abandon in the vampire hit’s second season. It opens incredibly darkly but mid-way veers from the slyly satirical into lurid silliness, sacrificing the first season’s suspenseful finesse and romantic chemistry for campy farce and hedonistic horror. The latter is driven by Michelle Forbes (Battlestar Galactica: Homicide: Life on the Street) signing on as the ultimate she-devil who turns Bon Temps into a purgatory for paganists. At least season two looks much sharper on Blu-ray, even if the exclusive extras – two enhanced viewing modes – aren’t as compelling. There also are seven commentaries and two mockumentaries, the best being a special edition of TV’s The Vampire Report that includes a scoop about a new reality show (Daddy, I’m Dating a Vampire) and a sneak peek of the teen vampire soap, OMG! ur a vampire (:-. For a sneak peek of what to expect in season three of True Blood, which launches later this month on Prime, see this USA Today report.
