friday {vampire} porn

{oooooooo the keyword hits I'm going to get with that post title...}

As one of my lovely readers so thoughtfully reminded me (seriously, how has this not been Sharpied into my calendar for months with about 5,012 alarms and alerts set and highlighted in RED???), True Blood premiers this Sunday!  


I'm curious to see where Alan Ball takes TB in Season 3... I'm hoping it's somewhere back near the brilliance of Season 1 and not another detour to Wack-a-Doodleville - aka the last half of Season 2.  Stick with the book plot lines + character development, Ball - Let those ancillary characters be, now, and get back to what you do best! 

So in anticipation... the question of the hour... 

Team Bill?  or...

Team Eric?

{and if you dare say Team Edward or Team Jacob, we are no longer friends}

Mi respuesta is not entirely cut and dry... While Alexander Skarsgard is dead sexy (dead! vampires! ha!  I kill myself! (kill! vampires! ha! I could go on and on... into eternity (eternity! vampires! ha!  Those are some immortal puns! (immortal! vampires! HA!...)))), Stephen Moyer is more my speed, lookswise.  And when the man says "Sookie" - in a way that can only be described as a purrrrrr-grunt - I giggle like a glamoured fang banger.  

But... BUT!  My undying (undying! vampires! ha!) allegiance lies on Team Eric... love how the character progresses in Harris' novels... love the show's styling department's inability to find Alexander a shirt... and, while mostly unrelated, love Skarsgard's GaGa video cameo.  

What say you, dear readers?  Will you be tuning in on Sunday?  Who does your heart neck belong to?

  1. While I do like Bill's Elvis voice (can't tell me that when he says "Sookie" he doesn't sound a little like the king) But I'm completely on team Eric. How amazing does that man look in those wife beater tanks. *swoon*

  3. I couldn't agree more - the last half of last season was ridiculous. Please no more of that. I like Sookie with Bill, but I'll take Eric for myself please!

  5. Oh crap, we have to re-subscribe to HBO stat, else get home from Boston on Sunday and be crushed by the lack of fangs on our tv.

  6. ERIC. ERIC. ERIC. I cannot say it enough! I love him in the books and have probably never been so pleased with a casting choice as I am with Eric. What you should not do, though, is look up the actor that Charlaine Harris modeled Eric in the book after. He's fug. Thank god HBO didn't let her go with that guy!

  7. Honestly? I am barking up the tree of Team Sam (he's a dog - get it? hahaha!) He can sniff my sheets any day.......:) But if he gets put down (I crack myself up....), then I am team Eric. Bill's weird hair color just freaks me out too much. I get that he can only go out at night but you can't tell me there isn't a decent colorist open late! :)

  8. I can't wait until it starts again! I'm all about Eric. Swoon. That man is HOT.

  9. Eric Eric..of course team Eric. All I can pray for is 2 words...Shower Scene...if there is a god, there will be a Shower Scene as in the books.

    I also pray that season 3 doesn't go off into crazytown and give us more of that whole Mary Ann crap. FYI Ball - NO ONE!! NO ONE!!! liked that stupid story line...

  10. Team Eric! My hubby and I are counting down the hours until Sunday afternoon. He's even Team Eric- he finds Bill annoying and "soppy."

  11. Sometimes the show makes it's hard to be for him, but I love Eric. The books have totally made me Team Eric and people who haven't read them look at me like I am CRAZY! But I am, I am Team Eric.

  12. Also Editing to add that my husband is Team Neither. He thinks Eric looks like Kid Rock, but at least he watches with me right?

  13. How is it that I have never seen this show??? In general, I think vampires are very sexy...you know, mysterious, wear capes, usually have fantastic parties, live in castles, all that stuff. LOL

  14. Team Eric all the way! Ah so excited! My DVR has been set to record this for weeks now. I also hope this season is more like season 1. I am so over the whole Mary Ann mess!

  15. Bill, definitely. Love him. But, I haven't read the books, and it seems like most people who have read the books are team Eric. I just don't see it :(

  16. ohmygracious Eric! Eric, Eric, Eric! That man is droolworthy. And I agree with Mrs. Jetplane.. please, please bring on the shower scene!

  17. You know, you really are a terribly good writer. And from the Texas region too, which is something. Please keep on with this blog. Thank you in advance.

  19. I just posted about how this was my latest obsession and can't wait for tomorrow night!!!

    This is such a hard decision!!! I am torn, I have just started reading the books, I love how cute Sookie and Bill are together but I would DIE for Eric. DIE. Love him. So I guess not so hard after all..... Team Eric.

  20. Now I'm kicking myself for not just biting the bullet and paying for HBO! I've seen Season 1, and will watch Season 2 as soon as it comes out on DVD. I think once we watch all of season 2 I'm just going to get it so I can watch Season 3 onDemand! I hope the premiere is fantastic!

  21. I am SO with you. I saw the show before I read the books, and was die-hard Team Bill. I just loved their story. Then I got to Sookie book 3 and it converted me- now permanently on Team Eric. Love the TB post!

  22. I know I am a little late to the party (short time reader, first time commenter) but did you see the Snoop Dogg Sookie video after the end of True Blood this weekend? OMG!
