I’ve watched since it’s inception and though for awhile that it was pretty decent. That was up until a few seasons ago where the storylines faded into a plethora of graphic sex scenes and the overuse of the word ‘Fuck’ in every aspect of the dialog. It wasn’t a sex scene or excessive cursing it was a stupid and boring storyline that didn’t hold your attention. The beginning of this season had absolutely lost me and I no longer watch it and with the now infamous “Republic*nt” episode I’ve really begun to understand my true dismay with the show: it has become too political. We watch fantasy shows to escape reality and one such reality is the stupid partisan politics from both sides of the political aisle playing with our future and lives as if they were pick up sticks. True Blood has decided for the past few season to inject it’s politics into the show creating a politically hostile show mixed with propaganda. It’s bad enough that I’ve become disillusioned with politics, but to have a show imbued with the essence of partisan politics makes me sick. I can deal with the sex scenes and cursing, I’m no prude, but inserting politics is just a deal breaker for me. I don’t give a damn what your politics are I just want to be entertained and not yelled at about certain political ideologies. I don’t care to see it in a show that’s why I read the news whether it’s CNN, MSNBC, IndyMedia, FOXNews, The Blaze, Drudge Report or whatever other news media group. Thankfully, this is True Bloods last season and many are happy to see it go mainly because of the crappy writing and the absolute silliness of the series the past few seasons.
Seriously, though, if I wanted to watch propaganda I’d watch Michael Moores films or Triumph of the Will. Those are more interesting than anything True Blood has to say.
