Censuring The Censors

True Blood-Complete Second Season (Blu-ray)

   Episode ten, New World In My View is approximately ten minutes shorter than the other episodes. Normally, this would be a good indication of censorship because episodes on network television are normally made to conform to a specific length. This, however, appears to not be the case with HBO, the makers of True Blood. It is therefore not unreasonable to believe either that HBO simply wrote New World In My View to run forty-four minutes instead of the usual fifty-four, or that the OFLC censored it. In the absence of any evidence for the latter, we will go with the former explanation for the time being.
