    Anyone else keeping up on Season 3? It's getting so intense... the ending to the last episode was just :yikes: and :rofl1: . I can't wait until sunday night's episode.

    The season started off slowly, but it's definitely picked up speed and is getting really good!

    Loved the books, but am not as fond of the show... then again, it's just cause Bill is not near as attractive as I think he should be, and Eric isn't... big enough? LOL Like, he's tall, sure, but not thick.

    We don't get it right now on our TV, but I'm probably gonna buy the DVDs of the seasons, just cause I'm weird like that, and I adooooore the opening of each show.

    Hahaha! I know, I was like wtf when they first showed him in the container :rofl1: So awesome. He is a really great character... definitely intimidating, but comedic as well.

    AgilityPup, I love the opening as well. It's so perfect for the show.

    Ya I find Bill not attractive, but I don't find Sookie all that pretty either. But the characters are great (love lafiyette sp? even though he wasn't a major character in the books)

    The opening is great!

    I don't find Bill attractive, but I really think he's a good character... and Sookie's pretty plain as well.

    I've only read the first book, but I actually enjoy the show more. I like how Tara was added in, and other characters are more detailed as well.

    Honestly, I hate Bill in all the books, and in the show. I just do not like his character (if you haven't read the books then I wont go into detail. ;)) And Sookie's actress drives me CRAZY! I was under the understanding while reading the books that she was supposed to be drop-dead gorgeous and all the guys liked her and drooled, but were scared off by her crazy. That's what *I* got, but she's... average?... in the show...

    Did either of you see the Rolling Stones cover with Eric, Bill, and Sookie on it? They really like to push the sex factor for publicity, it seems.

    Big fan here! I read all of the books (they have definitely gone downhill IMO) and watched all the episodes.

    I L O V E what they've done with Lafayette, and to a lesser degree Tara, Jason, Jessica... basically all the minor characters. Russel is pretty great, so was Franklin.

    I DO NOT love what they've done with Eric. In the show, he is so dark and brooding and WEEPY and kinda angry lol. In the books he has his negative moments but for the most part he is lighter, mischievous and more social. He flirts more. I hope we get to see that in the show.

    I think the only time we've really seen the Book Eric is when he tricks her into sucking the bullet out of his chest. That, and the tone of the scene, is much more book-like. Alan Ball said in one interview that Bill and Sookie will be the core of the show, which would explain why we see so little of Eric. It's a shame, because Book Eric is a great character.

    This is who inspired Eric, BTW:

    Personally I think Skarsgard is fine (I wish he would stand up straight though! And preferably stop slicking his hair back).

    I read the books... Wasn't too crazy about tem, but I do like them.
    LOVE the Show :D I watch them online, though, so sometimes I can't remember if I watched the latest episode. :(

    I LOVE True Blood. I also read all the Sookie Stackhouse books so far.

    Sookie needs to ditch Bill though. Oh and Eric is drool-worthy for sure, which is odd for me, I am not keen on blonde or very tall men, but he's rather striking.

    Just bought the first season on dvd last week and finished it up a couple days ago. Leaving for wal mart to buy the second season in a couple minutes:p


    Its been a while since I have really liked any series(except for weeds) enough to make a point to watch it.

    hmmm Eric. I liked the butt shot in the third season lol. He is rather drool worthy. And at first I did not like him as Eric, but he grew on me and I cant think of him not being Eric. hmmmmm...;)

    Agreed. :D

    I think the thing that gets me about Sookie is the teeth. Good lord, you could kick a field goal through those front ones. Not that I'm making fun of folks with dental issues, but you'd think she'd have it corrected.
