“3) Bill Compton, True Blood
The worst thing that can happen to a TV show is for its romantic lead to make his big entrance and then sorta… whiff it. While we love love love True Blood, we’re just not down with the fangs that Sookie Stackhouse is banging. Because he’s short and whiny and prudish and a too-awkward mixture of gruff and tender. There’s nothing dangerous about him, and isn’t the implicit danger sort of the whole point of a vampire/human love story? A nation of TB fans seem to agree with us, judging by the collective sighs of relief (and moans of… well, relief) that went up when the far more intriguing Eric strode onto the screen. We get that Bill is central to the whole saga and mythos of the story, but does he have to be such a weenie all the time, especially when standing next to the (way taller) Eric?”
I loved Bill in the book until a certain moment in the books that I just couldn’t love him anymore…so I’ve never grown attached to the show Bill.
