Some of you will care, while others won’t give a damn due to your hatred for True Blood wolves, but HBO has finally shared the DVD release date for Season 5 of True Blood. The big day is – May 21, 2013. Along with each bloody episode, the DVD also comes with an assortment of bonus features. Check out the details below.
“Returning for its fifth season, True Blood is HBO’s sexy, scary, wildly entertaining drama series from Oscar®- and Emmy®-winner Alan Ball (Six Feet Under) and based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. In addition to returning cast favorites – human/faerie waitress Sookie Stackhouse, her vampire suitors Bill Compton and Eric Northman, soul-searching pal Tara, shape-shifting boss Sam, rakish brother Jason, clairvoyant Lafayette and teen-vamp Jessica – Season 5 introduces a whole new wave of otherworldly characters. There’s Vampire Guardian Roman, president of the Vampire Authority, who wants co-existence between humans and vampires; vampire zealot Salome (yes, the Salome), intent on recreating the world in God’s vampyric image; Authority Chancellor Nora, who shares the same maker as Eric; werewolves J.D. and Martha, who want a reluctant Alcide to take his rightful place as packmaster; and many more. Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, True Blood Season 5 goes deep into the battle between the Vampire Authority and “vampire fundamentalists” – a political power play whose outcome could decide not only the fate of Sookie and her Bon Temps friends, but of all human existence.”

Wow, Moonlight. Way to keep fanning the flames by reminding us why we hate TB Weres. Also, you rewatch seasons 3-5, you’ll start to see how misogynistic the show has gotten. As for the weres of season 6, abandon hope all ye who watch the show.
Wait, what did I do wrong now? I have made my views on True Blood clear a thousand times now. But just because some of us don’t like the show doesn’t mean that I stop posting about it. I write about all werewolf things here, not some werewolf things.
I dont mean anything bad by my comment; i’m saying the dvd is a constant reminder of how bad the show has gotten. The show has gotten really misogynistic from seasons 3-5 just pay close attention to the women of the show and their relationships with the men; especially Sookie, Eric, and Bill. Dont ignore the rest of the female cast, they have it just as bad. There is no hope for the Weres; its like hoping,you reach the bottom of a bottomless pit its not gonna happen.
Why are you telling me to pay close attention though? I know how bad the show is. I know how the women are.
Yeah, but alot of TB viewers dont pay close attention. They just suck in everything that is in the show and continue to call it great.
If it makes any difference…I’ve always hated that show. Seen a few episodes here and there whenever they’re on TV.
It sucks – besides Being Human, there’s not a lot of things going on werewolf-wise…
