Mine

Anyone else the acting in this episode was overdone? I really think this was a crappy episode and that isnt looking good.

"Sookie is mine." Not so country sounding. It's southern and possessive. Bill has been around long enough to be 173 years old, he's the next air to the plantation house in Louisiana, implying that he himself had deep roots in Louisiana. Therefore, he will have a southern accent and not only a possessive personality from the culture surrounding the era he was born and made but also of his vampire nature.

I actually thought Anna Paquin was the worst/cheesiest one in the episode (accent and delivery of lines).I actually looked at the TV screen and said, "How was this girl once nominated for an Academy Award?!"But...all in all...I am still enjoying the show - bad dialogue and all (and unnecessary graphic sex - which seems to be an Alan Ball specialty...I mean, who watched Six Feet Under...); even with its flaws though I am finding it to be one of the only interesting new shows of the Fall, so I am willing to let it slide to see how things play out.

Do get me wrong, I love the show, but after waiting almost two weeks I was severly disappointed. Thats all i was trying to get across.

I think his southern accent isn't too bad for a British actor hehe. And don't forget, he's probably lived alllll over the world for the hundreds of years that he's been alive/dead (?), so he may have a mish-mash of accents. The episode was great, just like the last two :) Sometimes I wonder the type of people who watch this show. I don't mean to be disrespectful (ok maybe I do :) ), but maybe you need to watch something less shocking & thought provoking? B/c I swear you people complain about the dumbest things. No show is perfect. Jeebus.

Hey Valene, I have nothing against a southern accent, especially since I was born and raised in the south, live in the south still, and have one myself. I was just saying his southern accent wasn't believable, over the top, and kind of slaughtered.

I read the books and this is really not what i thought. Tara and Sam dont hook up, although the violent sex is in the books. I love the show, and thats not what i was saying just the acting was not up to par with the other episodes. Everyone needs to remember Bill was from a different time thats why he talks the way he does. Sometimes we cant just let go of our past. I only thought that the acting in general was bad this episode, hopefully the next will be better although from the preview I can tell that the book no longer the story line their going on, except for the murders.

what do you all have against the southern accent: Go watch Gossip girl then!!!! I like this episode because until then it was hard to understand Bill dilemma! The nest in which he lives where he is the only who wants electricity, he likes reading, and he likes Sookie cos he cannot mesmerize her! Like in Californication (sic!) sex is everywhere but does not prevent from a real plot or real feelings! I'm impressed by all the risk the producers took to give something raw, brutal, new and sexy! I am a fan and I'm not the only one. Friends of mine have made a cleaner version so that they can share with the youngest in the family! HBO should do like some music videos, two versions, the original one and its cleaner version! in all the cases long life to true blood!

Uh, i totally thought it was horrible. The line "Sookie is mine" was just so country sounding...i know they are supposed to be in Louisiana but really? I think the guy who plays Bill is a british actor, so he WAY over hicked the accent. I actually fell asleep in the middle of this episode. I was digging the show, but by now we all know Sookie's brother is a dog and do we really need to keep seeing his violent sex acts? I vote no. Also, I thought it totally improbable that Tara and Sam would hook it up. I'm kinda over this one.
