Airing Tonight: “True Blood” Season 7 (6/22/2014)

“This is the end, my only friend the end……” The brief lyric from the classic tune by The Doors seems rather appropriate as fans of the Supernatural series on HBO prepare themselves for the first episode of the final season of “True Blood”….queue dramatic music…….

Poster - True Blood - Season 7

Season 6 Recap: Season six focuses on Billith’s growing abilities. Sookie and Jason search for Warlow, the vampire responsible for their parents death. Louisiana governor leads a platform to eradicate the entire vampire race, leaving all fates in the balance.

Produced by Alan Ball and Brian Buckner, the seventh season continues the creepy happenings that are brewing down South with Miss Sookie Stackhouse, Vampire Bill Compton and a host of other strange individuals. When we last saw our heroine, she and many of the townspeople were ready to be attacked by what appeared to be zombie vampires. I realize that this is not the proper description but these vamps were affected by the “H” virus that had been put out there in the “True Blood” drink to wipe out their race. Anyway, it looked like it was going to get ugly and I am sure it will knock us off the couch from the moment that it begins this evening on HBO. Will you watch?

My Thoughts: For me personally I have been steadily losing interest in this show but I did still like it from time to time. I loved the first couple of seasons but felt the ones that followed were moving into X-Men territory just a little bit and not every circumstance was as compelling as they would want you to believe. What do you folks think? Are you still heavily invested in the show or think that it has run its course after the preceding six seasons. I have to wonder if this will hold a candle to the current “Penny Dreadful” series that I am loving. Let me know in the comments because I would love to hear what you think or what you expect from this final season. One has to wonder if any kind of offshoot series is to be expected once this runs its course
