Absolutely FABULOUS!!

I really hope there is a Season 2!! I recently rewatched True Blood and forgot how much I loved the show, I can’t get enough of it, Deb and Kristin do such a fantastic job deep diving into the details behind the story of each episode and the guests they bring in really help to highlight important aspects of the show you don’t normally get to hear about or see (directors, writers, guest stars, sound mixing etc.)
