    one more thing….these off-screen romances are a dime a dozen. Just cause they are a couple now doesn’t mean they will be, in real life, forever. How many celebs have dated their co-stars….too many to count. What happens when they split?

    i DO hope we see some eric/sookie in “dallas”. i love bill & sookie together, but i am a HUGE fan of the books & they just don’t come fast enough to get my ERIC FIX!!

    i can’t help it, i love the eric and sookie story in the books. yet, i do find myself fond of the bill ans sookie story in the show, i guess it’s that chemistry between the actors.

    I can’t friggin wait for season 2! The anticipation is killing me! Does anybody know what kind of special features will be on the season 1 dvds (aka new interviews, deleted scenes)? I need something to supplement my lack of True Blood!

    I sure hope that Alan Ball keeps Bill and Sookie together instead of splitting them up like in the books, they really do have so much chemistry together, sometimes when I watch True Blood I forget that its just a show, thats how great of actor/actress they are, they act completely natural with each other and normal, well I guess as normal as they can get being a telepath and a vampire, hmm, oh well the show still rocks!

    Stephen moyer and anna paquin are the best couple ever!
