True Blood: Battle of the Seasons!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Looking back at the first six seasons of True Blood, it becomes apparent just how much was squeezed into such a short period of time.

There are probably far more characters than were necessary to make a good series. Storylines came and went, sometimes without making much sense or even bothering to arrive at a proper end.

But the core characters - the ones who won our hearts - have kept us coming back for more. The supernatural story of Sookie, Bill, Eric, Tara, Jason, Pam, Sam, Jessica and all the rest is so full of campy fun, sex and bloody mayhem it's difficult to look away.

Maryann the Maenad, Marnie the Wich and Warlow the Whatever-the-Hell-He- Turned-Out-To-Be didn't leave an impression... but they didn't destroy the central conflict that resides among the main characters, either, as they fought for love and redemption amidst a great deal of sin and evil deeds.

Take a look at our rankings, from worst to best, and tell us what you consider the best season of True Blood in the poll that follows.

True Blood Season 5
If you love government, especially the Vampire Authority, you must have loved Season 5. Tara became a vampire thanks to Sire Pam and Russell Eddington was finally put to rest by Eric. Sookie had a dalliance with Alcide and Terry... WTF was Terry doing? He was in his own world of PTSD with supernatural forces. The season was all over the board and kind of a mess.
