    And I am talking about the character Eric, not ASkars by any means. By all accounts he seems to be a really decent guy.
    Oh, I don't see him that way on the show at all. YES he is a manipulative asshole, but he's also so much more. When they portayed his "fierce loyalty" and love for Godric it added such pathos and depth to his character--I was MUCH pleased. He's also got a more modern, evolved attitude toward women than Bill does, by far. This new, lovesick aspect is going to be FUN to watch. I mean, whose heart doesn't melt at the thought of the bad, baaaaad boy being felled by a "frenzy" of love and lust? Just imagine it's YOURSELF as the recipient of all that virile desire. GodDAMN.

    Yes, its all a big fantasy, that's exactly my point. It doesn't exist in real life. But we'll go with the fantasy since its a sci-fi show.

    I disagree. The power he wields in such a natural way, is an attractive trait but there seems to be more there than that. I actually like the Eric in the last book (in certain parts) than the one in book 4. Particularly him talking to Sookie about his wife and children. He is manipulative and bossy and he does typically look out for number one. Unfortunately it seems like more than a soft spot for Sookie (spoiler) - question: in that last book, when Eric says "Clancy lives on in Bill" and Pam says "As you live on in Sookie" - what the hell do you think they are going to do with that? It seems like that statement coupled along with Sookie demanding "Where were you, I was praying you would come" and he says "You'll know where I was soon" or something to that effect - what the hell are they planning????

    Yeah much more than a soft spot. This is Eric's heart, on Sookie: (hee hee)

    Frenzy!!!

    Dig this crazy mood I'm in,
    listen to my heart as it starts to spin.
    Whish, when you kiss me, and do it again,
    I'm in a Frenzy!!!

    Watch my eyes, when you light them up,
    Bling!
    Listen to me whine, like a harpsichord.
    When you touch me I warm right up,
    I'm in a Frenzy!!!

    Frenzy!!!

    This love gushes from my heart,
    like a water from a spout.
    You build a flame, from a tiny spark.
    You can really knock me out.

    Yeah!

    Ease my mind with your real cool lines,
    daddy, fill my soul with love divine.
    When you say your mine, all mine,
    I'm in a Frenzy!!!

    Yeah I have to remind myself that especially when forced to believe that Eric is actually hot for Sookie. In real life a guy like that would never go for a lecturing prude like her, especially a gap toothed potato faced one. Bill is SO much more her type. May she stay with Bill forever. Pam and Eric all the way.

    I hate Suckie.

    I like Sook much better in the books than on the show.

    BTW, I posted some incredible new pics of Asgard in the hot guys thread. Totally lucious.

    Agreed - I like Sookie much better in the book. She's not such a cunt-faced bitch ... I mean, lecturing dog-faced gremlin....

    Eh, Sookie has shown a lot of qualities that Eric prizes highly, like "fierce loyalty" and courage in standing up to him on behalf of her friend Lafayette. And she pushed THAT deal as far as she could to her own benefit, just like Eric would have done. Then of course she was so kind to his beloved Godric, speaking up for him to the fearsome HBIC Nan Flanagan, and then not letting him die alone. On top of that, if we get to see another perspective on the bullet sucking scene like I AM CONVINCED WE WILL (I must shout because nobody believes me, lol) we will see there was a LOT more to it than the asinine shit we saw from the delusional Bill's pov.

    Here's my take on the bullet sucking scene:

    Hey, I believe you. I noticed the same thing you did about how in that first ep, Jason walked up to Luke and Luke wasn't all nasty. And then the next ep, it was as though it was someone else's spin on it. It was odd.
    Kill him.
    Kill her.

    I still don't see Eric lusting after Sookie because she's a good, loyal dog. I don't even know how much he appreciates those qualities about her. For all his wonderfulness, I think he's a very shallow vampire. He did show depth with his feeling towards Godric but that was for his maker and a fellow vampire. I DO however believe that a lot of his keenness on Sookie comes from his intense rivalry with Bill Compton. Like when Sophie-Anne tells Bill that he and Eric should stop competing and just fuck each other already. Taking Sookie away from Bill is a big part of it. Also there is something about Sookie that is irresistable to vampires, but that's in the books. Spoiler: Sookie's great grandfather was a fairy. Fairies are irresistable to vampires causing them to go into a frenzy of lust.

    Even in the books, I didn't see Sookie and Eric as a love, soul mate match. More of an intense, super sonic sexual relationship. Sadly I don't see that happening on the show. I don't feel the chemistry between Sookie and Eric. You do sense it with Bill though. Probably spill over from real life.

    Lol, well thank goodness. I think we get a hint from the previews that it will be ERIC who gives us the other perspective, which is a VERY good thing as Sookie would only romanticize what happened, as we've seen from her dreams. Anyway, in the preview you see the queen on top of a prone Eric, just like what I believe was Sookie's position in the REAL bullet sucking scene. Eric turns his head and gets that faraway "I'm about to have a flashback" look in his eye. Whoo, go Eric.

    I actually thought she could act, she was great in Thirteen and not that bad in The Wrestler, but I also think she completely sucks as the Queen.
    And OMG she'll be back in the next season, fuck !

    I was half expecting him to appear in Maryann's dress in the scene where Lafayette accidently kills the guy besides her
    That would have been funny (especially because of the style of the dress )

    OMG yeah !

    Nevertheless I think the Queen's got the best line when she tells Bill that he and Eric should fuck and she would watch !

    I completely agree with you on that.
    Good thing maybe, because I'd rather see Eric fuck anyone but Sookie in the show !





    And I can't remember who didn't want to read the books because they feared they would enjoy the show less, well I'm currently reading them and I actually like the show better, it goes in different directions and displays more characters (can you believe Tara doesn't appear until the end of book 2 and we barely see Lafayette in the books !)
    So I think it's quite easy to consider the books and the show as 2 different things and enjoy both of them.

    I do not. It was so random and out of left field I can only hope they make up for it with a satisfying explanation.
