You know that the nice thing about a vampire war would be that despite all the carnage, all the blood would get cleaned up post haste. So you know, it’s got that going for it. “True Blood” is one of those shows that really works in cycles of anticipation. Before every season you get more and more excited by the mounting teasers and trailers, until finally that wicked opening crawl begins to screech. And then the season is never disappointing per se, but it never seems to live up in retrospect to the fever pitch that the waiting engendered.

That said, here’s the best trailer yet for the upcoming season.

Season 5 - Trailer #1
