TV preview: 'True Blood' is for true fans only
HBO's vampire series is a bloody mess literally. "True Blood" is swimming in faux plasma. And the convoluted plotlines have traveled far from Charlaine Harris' books. As Season 6 begins, Bill is resurrected; Sookie and Jason's fairy grandpa shows up; and vampires and humans are at each other's throats. If you aren't already a fan, you'll be totally lost.
