Remember how cool it was when the writers behind True Blood trotted out the shape shifters in season two to compete with the vampires for our attention? With season three they’ve jacked the bar up pretty high by bringing out a whole parade of supernatural creatures.
The series picks up with Sookie (Anna Paquin) turning to a werewolf named Alcide (Joe Manganiello) to help her rescue her vampire beau Bill (Stephen Moyer) being held in Mississippi. By the end of the season, we are introduced a whole pack of (former) Nazi werewolves, some kind of panther/werewolf hybrid (lots of inbreeding in that clan), a witch and fairies, in one of the most creative seasons yet.
The writing is brilliant as always and the characters absolutely captivating. I can’t imagine how they can possible top themselves with season four.
