    Definitely older. Oh well. Maybe he'll be great.

    I figure AB feels it would be overkill for Sookie to be engaged to Bill, lusting after Eric, AND rubbing all over Alcide.
    That's probably true. Too much for an audience to keep up with as well.

    Only because he's changed Bill IMO. He should just follow the books and make Eric the hero *pouts*
    Who ordered a naked Swede?? MEEEEE!!

    Huge Alcide fan and Greys I freaking hate Quinn too!!! I'll be thrilled if we are spared that storyline. I'm just not seeing the Alcide I had pictured. Maybe he'll prove me wrong.

    Mark my words: AB is eventually going to reveal Bill as a huge ugly villain. All of the subtle clues and foreshadowing are pointing this way and AB is the one doing it, all the while shrewdly encouraging his audience/viewers to continue believing their lying eyes.

    And let's not forget Sam is in love with Sookie too. People will start throwing tomatoes at the teevee if one more hot man falls for her.

    The show is gearing up for a huge war between Bill and Eric over Sookie and AB probably didin't want to cast too good an actor in a prominent plotline which directly distracts from his core story.

    Seriously! And that's because it's so damn implausible! I have to tell myself "It's the fairy blood" without that no vampire would look twice at old Sook.

    I think AP is adorable, and I like Sookie for the most part, but my GOD you'd think she's the Raquel Welch of Bon Temps.

    She's more like Sandra Bernhard to me, but I get what you're saying.

    Good points. I think I'm letting the Beehl-lovers get to me. And Anne Rice comments on FB kind of confused me; either she's not very smart (entirely possible) or people see something quite different than me when they see True Blood.

    I'm curious if Debbie Pelt is going to be in the show. And if Eric is going to get to take the bullet for Sookie or that's going to be Beehl again.

    I can answer the Debbie Pelt part, they've been casting for the part but haven't announced who is playing her yet.

    Anne Rice is stupid, and I'm looking forward to finding out who is cast as Debbie Pelt and watching her storyline unfold, even moreso than Alcide.

    I wish they could cast Michelle Forbes as Debbie. I don't care if she's older than book Debbie, she can be a were-COUGAR lol, and Michelle is awesome.

    ANNNNNND lol:

    Top Ten Most Annoying Characters on TV:

    3) Bill Compton, True Blood
    The worst thing that can happen to a TV show is for its romantic lead to make his big entrance and then sorta... whiff it. While we love love love True Blood, we're just not down with the fangs that Sookie Stackhouse is banging. Because he's short and whiny and prudish and a too-awkward mixture of gruff and tender. There's nothing dangerous about him, and isn't the implicit danger sort of the whole point of a vampire/human love story? A nation of TB fans seem to agree with us, judging by the collective sighs of relief (and moans of... well, relief) that went up when the far more intriguing Eric strode onto the screen. We get that Bill is central to the whole saga and mythos of the story, but does he have to be such a weenie all the time, especially when standing next to the (way taller) Eric?

    This past week, I was walking by the old Warner studios that have been turned into independent production offices. It was nighttime, they'd left the lights on so I noticed several offices with nothing but True Blood posters, bulletin boards full of memos, schedules and notes with the True Blood logo on them. I wonder if it's where all the TB decisions go down? Might have to bring some binoculars with me next time to do some recon...
