I'm definitely starting to see the Eric appeal. I wish I weren't so easy.

Pssshhh. You're not easy. You're just picking up on the subtle clues that Eric is better.

You know, I am ready to come over to team Eric. I can't quite describe why, he just seems cooler than Bill.

One more for team Eric. Bill can be be sooooo serious. Man, just laugh, or smile, or say something sarcastic once in a while - ok?
post #125 of 411
I like that Eric doesn't pretend to be anything other than the Vampire Sheriff he is. He takes his job of protecting his kind very seriously and doesn't apologize for being a vampire. Eric also doesn't flinch when Sookie gets feisty. In fact he seems amused. lol Bill? He gets rude, yells and treats her like a child.

I think Bill's so serious because he's trying so darn hard to be human. It's like he still hasn't let go of that life. He also pretended in the books (trying to be vague for those who have not read them).

i liked Bill best in the early episodes, like when he gave the presentation to the history club. where he gets to be an old fashioned gentleman, behave as he did when alive pre-war--i confess i found that charming. or, more recently, when he told Jessica she was dressed like a "slattern". i giggled. mostly, Bill's behavior gets annoying to me.

but Eric...he makes me blush. whole different thing. i look forward to seeing how his relationship with Sookie takes shape. (i have not read the books.)

Oh, help me, I am completely on Team Eric now that I've finished Season One. He is sublime.

You'll really like him in the books. Without giving away details, I get the distinct impression that Charlaine Harris became disillusioned with Bill during the storytelling process and contrived a number of ways to make him much less sympathetic to the reader than Eric. Deffo get the books.....you'll really enjoy them.

I just finished the last book and I still love Bill. Eric is hotter than hot but I still really like Bill.

Woo hoo!! I'm not alone! :

Seriously Eric in the books is a UAV to me. I still think it is so odd people like him. If he did half the things he did to Sookie to me oh heck no! Even the "horribly awful" revelation about Bill was small beans to me in comparison to Eric overall.
post #131 of 411
Maggie, will you please PM me to fill me in on the horrible revelation????? You're killing me

It's not that I don't like Bill. I find him to be very devoted to Sookie, but dang, HBO-Eric is just sex on a stick. So perhaps lust is clouding my better judgement here.

Okay, maybe I haven't been watching long enough (I *just* got HBO, actually for the sole purpose of watching True Blood but Eric reminds me of a skinny Bill Pullman. It irritates me. Maybe if I can catch some season 1 episodes I'd change my mind, but I don't know.

Eric does? I think you mean Bill? Eric is the former viking blond big slab of meat. Not exactly screaming Bill Pullman to me

Georgia~ PMing you now. You know Eric's look on HBO is ok but I think where I differ is I am just a darker hair/eyed lean kind of girl. I say lean because I can't find another word for it. I'm just not into the really muscular hunky type is what I mean. Sam is the hotty of the hotties on TB to me.

and *I* thought I was alone. : Have you read all of the books?

I can admit that Eric does have a hotness about him and it might be fun to 'sow some wild oats' with him but man I can't help just loving Bill.

I look forward to see if you change your mind after reading the last 2. I don't want to give away anything though. Just check back with me

No, Eric! I've read the entire series, I know who I'm talking about Something about the shape of his face and jaw. And I said a *skinny* (and blonde, better throw that in there) Bill Pullman!

So does anyone know where I can catch up on season 1?
post #138 of 411
Netflixs offers Season One; I think it's even avaiable on Instant watch.

Me too! Well I got it a few months ago but it was just for True Blood. I got to watch all the first season in reruns.

Me too again! I love Sam much better than Bill or Eric. I also perferred Jacob over Edward in Twilight. Maybe I'm just not as into vampires as I thought I was!

I just read the first book, and I'm on a waiting list for the second at the library. I'm getting to impatient though and may just have to go ahead and buy them all.

I also preferred Jacob but then again I 1) didn't like the Twilight series much and 2) was very creeped out by Edward *shivers*
