    True Blood is way better, but I still rather TVD than Twilight.

    Elena is a great beauty.

    I like Vampire Diaries and True Blood, but I still cannot get interested in the Twilight Saga.

    The Vampire Diaries is the best because they never disappoint week after week. Just when you thought you understood what is going on and then BAM! there's a twist and plot line.

    I like the other one better, vampire Bill. He's hot. The one played by Alexander Skarsgard is a jerk.

    Ummm.. I think you're behind in watching the show. Cause Bill isn't as much of a white knight as he seems. Plus he's too whiny to me. Eric (Erik?) is what I think of when I think of a vampire. Not some basically vegetarian pussy :p

    LOL, well, that sums up female fans of the show. There are Bill girls and Eric girls. :tongue:

    I don't think whiny is a term I would have used to describe Bill. I still like him better. I like dark haired guys with intense eyes. Eric's jackass schtick is good for comic relief and it's entertaining, but I'm a lot more attracted to guys like Bill.

    I read some of the books during the first season. I didn't think much of them. The show is much better. I saw how she basically decided to change directions and make Eric a more sympathetic love interest, which rubbed me the wrong way because I already liked Bill so much. Alan Ball took out all the things I didn't like in the first one which I thought made the show a lot better. It made me feel like we were sharing a brain or like he had anticipated my own opinions about the book and then made the show suit my tastes.

    Eric is also an example of a common romantic trope about the asshole guy who changes for just the right girl (or once he's found love), which sort of annoys me because I don't really believe that guy actually exists outside of fiction.

    I still think Eric is an asshole... just, I find him more physically appealing. And I don't like how manipulative -either- of them are. Shit, if we're going off of guys I would date, Sam is probably the closest. He has a whole bunch of things he seems to be working through, but he's a nice guy. Eric I wouldn't mind having for a night or two, though :tongue:
