    It's a sad commentary on my life (or probable lack thereof) and intellectual development that I know far too much about a frothy, light-weight, brain-candy mystery series. Mr. jen_faith is re-reading Paradise Lost with side dips into the history of Sumer, I am re-reading books about southern vampires. I wonder sometimes how we stayed married for so many years

    Facetiousness aside, I actually really like the Sookie Stackhouse series and the TV series is growing on me. There's nothing wrong with escapism once in a while.

    Back to the series: if Ball is introducing the Queen

    Spoiler

    this season, I am wondering if we are going to have a conflation of several books?

    I personally don't like that Lorena noticed something different in Barry's blood, since Sookie's blood is different because of her ancestry. Unless they're going to go the whole 'not fully normal human' route, but in the books Sookie's was always related to her ancestry and as far as we know, she and Barry don't share that.

    I don't think there was ever an explanation regarding Barry, however, book spoiler ahead

    Spoiler

    I think CH just sort of forgot Barry after she used him in the STL conflagration.

    I concur with book 4 being the best (please let HBO keep it for a season 4!) Actually, I only really liked books 1-4 then 8&9... 5-7 didn't do as much for me.

    And a nice note - Sunday's episode was the highest ever for viewership that TB has received with 4.5 million viewers at the 9pm timeslot (beating last week's 4.4 previous best). With DVR, etc, it had almost 12 million viewers!

    Oh, just re-watching the episode right now... LOVE when Sookie screams at Eric, calling him an a-hole and he goes 'you're right, I think I can tell her emotions!' He played so perfectly sarcastic.

    I believe this book scene does not make it into the show. Either Ball or Skarsgard was asked about it and said so.

    It is a tragedy of epic proportions.

    Who or what do we have to sacrifice to the HBO gods to make it happen? That's what I want to know

    Poor TVBill. He gets no love except from his ubers (and those numbers are dwindling). I think this is partially the fault of the TB writers. The way he is being written this season makes him come across as a complete drip. He spends most of his time either wallowing in existential angst or telling Eric that "SOOOKIE IS MIIINE!"

    I do think that the show is going to keep the book idea that

    In season 1 Bill also said to Eric about Sookie 'if anything happens to her you will be...' and Eric replies 'that sounds like an edict, but I would know about that...' which implies the books will be followed.

    In the books it's hard to be a Bill/Sookie shipper but in the show they make it seem more 'real' like the feelings are really truly there.

    Bill kind of implied Sookie's feelings for him aren't real too in this episode by stating that the exchange of blood can cause sexual attraction. Her sexual attraction for him really started after she had his blood the first time, didn't it? So he kind of did to her exactly what Eric did (though she did actually need his) but both men were saving her lives, but in different ways (Bill's blood from her beating, Eric shielding her so he took all the bodily damage).

    I got 3/4 of the first 4 books... couldn't get #2 as they didn't have it. It will be in, in 2 weeks. I am looking forward to actually reading those books. Sounds like they are good (better?) than the show. LOL!

    screech--in the books, Sookie is fascinated by Bill the first time she sees him, and there is a bit of attraction between Sookie and Eric before he tricks her into taking his blood--in fact in the book, he's even sneakier, as he protects her precisely so he CAN be shot to make her take the blood.

    That Eric, such a kidder.

    Part of that attraction is because she can't read their minds and it's peaceful. Bill was very polite and didn't treat her like a freak (in the books she's still a virgin because of this), and CH writes Eric as hot from the first introducion.

    I'm almost done with the first book(I only read about 10 pages a night before I go to sleep, so it takes me a while to get through books)...and I'm to the part where Bubba(lol his character cracks me up) is guarding Sookie's house and Sookie has found out Sam is a shapeshifter.

    ETA: I have a feeling I'll be reading through the books quicker when Eric is in them more

    The new T.V. Guide has in interview with Skarsgard - I think it's titled "Scene Stealer". Anyway in the article he says he's single, but very ready and looking forward to having a family. (Swoon!)

    Really! PML. Everything I've read about him says quite the opposite! That he's definitely not ready to settle down I've decided that though he's uber porny, he's a bit too thin for my tastes. As Eric, his slender figure is pretty swoon-worthy, but in that nekkid!Alexander! clip, he was just a bit too scrawny. His face is still uber porny, as is his voice

    Did you click on the link to the right with the scene of Alexander in the shower? Not very scrawny at all.

    I think I've read that Alexander kept moving around for work so couldn't stay in a relationship because of that, but now that he's more 'settled' in LA becaues of TB he has the time now and hopes it happens. He comes from a family of like 7 kids so it makes sense he wants kids. I'll move to LA to help him out with that...

    The most swoony thing I've read him saying in an interview was something like:
    Interviewer: Have you heard that over 50% of women in Sweden cheat?
    Alexander: I guess it's true. But it would snow in hell before I would do that.

    Oh, and in other True Blood news...
    http://andyswist.com/TrueBlood-dolls.html Ummm, where's Eric's?
