True Blood - a little tired?

Modern Portrait of a Vampire (by me)
The gang from True Blood is back and with the elimination of a few story lines at the end of last season things should be simpler now. Or not.

Is Bill a big, bad, vampire with a God complex? Is Sookie really going to lay off the supernatural love interests? Will Jessica be happier with Bill? Has Pam lost the bar? Is Sam going to be a parent to his shifter girlfriend's daughter? And what about those fairy babies? I'm sure they will factor into the story around the new guy, portrayed by Rutger Hauer. Who, frankly, is the one thing that WILL keep me tuning in (ok, maybe I still care a little bit about Eric...and Lafayette).

But can this infusion of new blood really help a story that is feeling somewhat tired? After all, all things must end. Even vampires.

That sounds like a vampire themed soap opera.
