True Blood - Sookie Is Away With The Fairies

Three minute clip from the first episode of season four

Apparently this is how season four opens, with Sookie transported to a low budget ’70s fantasy film. As much as we love True Blood, we’re thinking the show’s approach to the fairy storyline is looking a little bit too literal, on-the-nose, and slightly cheesy alongside the show’s other more earthy plotlines. You never know, though – maybe by the end of the season we’ll all be taking it in our stride. Showrunner Alan Ball has a way of making the luicrous seem natural.

True Blood season four start in the US on HBO on 26 June, and will in later in the year in the UK on FX.
