Bill and Sookie 4-EVER!

Source: The Vine

True Blood has to be one of the best shows to come around in quite a while. So good, in fact, that I have a routine for my Sunday nights. Have the t.v. on HBO at 9 p.m. and be there. See? Simple plan.

Series stars Stephen Moyer (Vampire Bill Compton) and Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse) supposedly began dating when they met during the initial first season of the show but the news didn't come out until the first season had finished wrapping and the show had already premiered.

I was a huge Bill fan last season. Holy smokes, could any vampire be more smoldering (and darn polite) than Bill Compton?

Badass vampire Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard)
This season, my passion for Bill has dimmed somewhat with the moving of vampire Eric Northman to the forefront. While Bill is polite and the ultimate vampire gentleman, Eric is a total badass and completely unapologetic. Could you imagine Bill worrying about getting blood in his in-the-process-of-being-highlighted hair after ripping someone to pieces? Nope, I couldn't either.

Anyhow, Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin are now engaged, surely sending the Sookie/Bill 'shippers into True Blood heaven.

Long live Sookie and Bill - - and their respective portrayers - -as True Blood turns in a season with some real bite (yeah, poor pun intended).

Ah, True Blood. I love it so much.

I feel the EXACT same way -- I used to like Bill okay but now I love Eric. Have you read the books? You'll love Eric even more if you do. My friend and I have a True Blood party each week -- well, more like a small get together to watch it : )

I don't think I ever realized Bill's last name was Cullen!

I had no idea they were dating... I love that they're engaged now!

I don't have HBO so I won't get to see season 2 until it's on DVD but I've heard a lot about Eric becoming the new love interest. Not sure that I like that!

Jenny, I think Season 2 is due to be released fairly quickly. I'm not sure if you can watch episodes online. Anyhow, it's a great season so far. And Eric definitely brings the hot (okbolover isn't the only one drooling). He wasn't even on my radar last season - - but he's become a more important character which I think is what happens in the books (haven't read them yet, Sarbear).

It's not Bill Cullen... That's Twilight. It's Bill Compton.

Thank you, Anonymous! I obviously got my hot vamps mixed up. It is indeed Bill Compton and I've made the change. :)
