True Blood Season 5: Tomorrow!

David Bowie once wrote a song about changes. We can assume, for all intents and purposes, that he was referring to a television show. After all, most heartfelt rock ballads were written about TV. For instance, John Lennon's "Imagine" was about St. Elsewhere, and The Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses" was about Mr. Ed. OK, maybe not, but the case could certainly be made for Bowie's "Changes."

Over the course of a few seasons, a television show is bound to take on a few new directions. Sometimes, this can be chalked up to organic growth and character development. Other times, the alterations are... less favorable. And far too frequently, the show you signed on for is not the same show you end up with, to the point where your own simple description of what your favorite program is about changes drastically from the first season to the last.

On its way back to HBO for a fifth season, True Blood is one of many culprits of this practice. Below are a few examples of shows that have undertaken drastic makeovers, and the different ways you might have pitched these programs to your friends, relatives, or nonthreatening subway passengers.
