‘True Blood’ live chat tonight during Season 2 premiere

June 15, 2009 | 2:46 a.m.

True Blood hug

Red lights, grey morning

You stumble out of a hole in the ground

A vampire or a victim

It depends on who’s around

I always loved those U2 lyrics and they flashed through my mind as I watched an advance DVD with the first four episodes of “True Blood” Season 2.

Don’t worry, no spoilers here … but I will tell you that the second season shows a lot of promise. The bright spots of the cast are again Rutina Wesley as Tara Thorton, Nelsan Ellis as Lafayette Reynolds and Stephen Moyer, who continues to add surprising layers to Bill Compton, the vampire with 19th century formality and conflicted feelings about his bloodsucking bretheren.  

Season 2 kicks off tonight with plenty of fangs and splatter and some especially nasty doings in a nightclub basement used as an abattoir for unfortunate humans. If you’re a “True Blood” fan and you want to drink in every drop of the show, visit the live chat hosted by our sister blog, Show Tracker, where Jessica Gelt will be vamping and venting, beginning at 8:30 PDT …

You can find the chat right here.
