Lots of slowness but awesomeness in the first episode.
Love that Eric highlights his hair and gets pissy about having his time interrupted.
Now for the spoilery bits
YAY Lafayette lives! I like Eric taking action against offenders of vampires, but the dungeon is a bit much this far for me, and kind of out of character (as Eric constantly boasts that nothing illegal is done on the Fangtasia premises).
Love that since it wasn't Lafayette it wasn't Lettie Mae that had died (the other popular guess of the victim). By looking at the body of Miss Jeanette and knowing the books, I have a hunch of who killed her. And Alan Ball has said that the viewers will know a bad guy before the characters do, so we'll find out soon...
Bill cracked me up this episode, what with his recycling talk and everything and giving bedtimes. And Jessica is growing on me. I kind of like her perky sassiness and her admiration of Sookie so far.
I don't particularly like Maryann though, but I hope she grows on me.
And damn, was that sex scene ever fricken hot! And I think Stephen Moyer has been working out, if his back is any indication. ROWR!
