Wow. Have found a site dedicated to the gloriousness that is Eric, well and Sookie too. Dedicated to them as a couple really and oh boy! Here I was thinking I was loopy as hell for liking Sookie Stackhouse enough to talk about her out loud- but no! The moderator and posters, like me, think Alan Ball has completely skewed up the adaptation for TV, so I now know I am not a complete cynical cow and I might at some point lament the choice of the weak chinned Swede for the role of the hulking great sex pot that is the Viking, but for the moment I can dwell happily in my wonderful little happy sub-fantasy land of vampires and faye and fun things like that!
