True Blood Season 6 is coming in hot (premiering on HBO on June 16 at 9 p.m.), and those who hadn’t quite caught up yet are apparently doing just that. Right now, True Blood: The Complete Fifth Season is the top-selling DVD and Blu-ray in the U.S.
While many of us wouldn’t be able to deny ourselves True Blood in real time, there are definite advantages to catching up via this DVD. It’s packed with five episodic commentaries and a plethora of behind-the-scenes glimpses. There is also something called “True Blood Autopsy: The Anatomy of an Episode,” which Truebies will love due to its painstaking breakdown of the episode “Hopeless.”
There is also an “Authority Confessional” that goes into the origins of the characters and “True Blood Lines,” which is a “series wide family tree.”
And, as Kyle Kinder of geekexchange.com says, “this season is much more vamp-rich than a few of the immediate seasons, finally fleshing out the Vampire Authority, and leaving out much of the otherworldly distractions.”
If you’re catching up by DVD, keep in mind you only have 12 days left until the True Blood Season 6 premiere! Surely, the Season 5 set will leave you thirsting for more.
