Ranata Clark (thatchicknata) I totally disagree that Bill is not the hotter of the two. In the book, that's to be disputed but in the tv show/movie, Edward couldn't touch him.

Silvana (silvaubrey) I don't read Twilight, but I think Robert Pattinson is nowhere near Stephen Moyer in terms of hotness.


message 3: by Angie (new)

Angie (angiebowen) I don't like Bill at all (in the books or on the show) so Edward wins out on both counts for me. Put him up against Eric on the other hand and he's going down lol.


message 4: by Evelynn (new)

Evelynn Passino (evpassino) | 131 comments As a member of Team Bill and Team Edward...in a head-to-head, Bill wins hands down. Edward is downright goofy compared to Bill.

Great topic, by the way.


message 5: by Kathy (new)

Kathy (bookgoddess1969) Definitely Bill Compton!!!

Totally different dudes! I can't compare the two.


Jael ~ *~ Syhren ~* ~ (wwwgoodreadscomprofilejael) | 182 comments imo I think they both suck

Literally! lol. ;)


Jael ~ *~ Syhren ~* ~ (wwwgoodreadscomprofilejael) | 182 comments lol well not Edward since he is fangless, which in the vamp world makes him impotent lol


message 10: by Jessica (new)

Jessica | 193 comments I haven't seen the Twilight movie, so just comparing book to book, Edward wins (though its close). Just appearance wise from the live actions? Bill! Stephen Moyer is way hotter than the kid who plays Edward. I think its probably an age thing. Granted I'm only 28, but done up to look permanantly 17 movie-Edward just looks like a kid.

Or a virgin. LoL. Vamps have sex. Where's the fun in a celibate one??


message 12: by Lori (new)

Lori  (moderatrixlori) I've got to go with Edward on this one. I don't find Bill attractive at all. But, like Angie...Eric beats the hell out of either one of them.

Ugh! Eric really skeeves me out! (Is that a word? lol) It's Bill all the way for me! :)


message 14: by Kandice (new)

Kandice I guess there are things about each I find attractive, but Edward is... SEVENTEEN!!!! I don;t care how long he's been a vampire, that's jailbait! Moyer vs. Pattinson- Moyer wins, even though I am NOT on tem Bill. (Go team Eric!!!)

Jael ~ *~ Syhren ~* ~ (wwwgoodreadscomprofilejael) | 182 comments Eric is the King no competition. Edward is a co-dependent virgin and Bill is a Butthead


message 16: by Melinda (new)

Melinda (craftymommy) | 4 comments Aw hell, if Eric is an option; it's not even a competition! It's Eric, without a doubt. Both Bill and Edward pale in comparison.

Robert is the worse choice ever for Edward. I refuse to see this movie simply because he's now been changed in the books for me forever. Bill is attractive on the show, not in the books. In the books he reminds me of the Count from Sesame Street only taller. But I've said that before. LOL.

Eric totally beats them all but he wasn't mentioned so I still pick Bill.


message 18: by Paula (new)

Paula (Paula717) | 6 comments If I was a teenager again, I'd say Edward but since I'm not I have to say Bill. BUT if Eric was in the picture, I'd take the beautiful viking in a sec.

Ranata Clark (thatchicknata) Jael wrote: "Eric is the King no competition. Edward is a co-dependent virgin and Bill is a Butthead"

I don't want to say he's co-dependent but he's definitely a tortured soul and who wants their strong vampire boyfriend crying more than they do? He's like a hot Emo dude. LoL. And he doesn't put out!! VAMPIRES LOVE TO PUT OUT! =\


Jael ~ *~ Syhren ~* ~ (wwwgoodreadscomprofilejael) | 182 comments lol o, true but wait he did put out once and then tried to kill the spawn before it was born.

The count from Sesame Street?? I have to admit I didn't see that one coming, lol. I think Harris would shoot herself if she knew Bill was coming across that way.


message 23: by Kathy (new)

Kathy (bookgoddess1969) Thank god, Eric isn't in this. He creeps me out! Like the skanky guy, who's been around and thinks he's all that.....guess what.....to me, he's definitely not! But that's my opinion.

Go, Team Bill!!!!


message 24: by Jessica (new)

Jessica | 193 comments Ok, I never quite envisioned Eric as 'the skanky guy' LOL And Bill as 'The Count'? HAHAHA I'm on team Bill and even I think that's hillarious.

It is very funny, because it's so absurd. I'll have to listen closer next season for the "counting"......lol


Jael ~ *~ Syhren ~* ~ (wwwgoodreadscomprofilejael) | 182 comments LOL you gotta admit the sideburns and fangs make Bill the counts twin. One Sookie, Two Sookie, Three Sookie Stackhouses HA! HA! HA!

Ranata Clark (thatchicknata) Jael wrote: "lol o, true but wait he did put out once and then tried to kill the spawn before it was born."

He wasn't a dummy like Bella. LOL. I'd have tried to kill it (her whatever) as well.

His whole description and the pictures give me the Count vibe. It's so cliche. LOL


message 29: by Evelynn (new)

Evelynn Passino (evpassino) | 131 comments Didn't Bill mention something on the show about not liking text messaging? I guess that limits him to numbers.


message 30: by Mary Todd (new)

Mary Todd (marytodd) | 19 comments I think Bill's courtly 1860's manners make him seem 'count-like'. Eric is supposed to have been a Viking...maybe the tv Eric has assimilated better than the book Eric, but I always think of him as a bit barbarian, but regal.

Not interested in Eric, however Carlyle is interesting.


message 31: by Tabatha B (new)

Tabatha B | 14 comments Ok, I am going to have to say Bill on this one just becasue he seems more vampire like. I meen come on...Edaward doesn't have fangs and he sparkles like diamonds in the sun. I wouldn't have thought this before reading the Sookie Series though since I read the Twilight series first.


message 32: by Angie (new)

Angie Edward has that boy cute going on... Bill is more sexy like a real man. So I would say Bill is more sexy and Edward is cute.


message 33: by Jess (new)

Jess | 116 comments I pick Eric! He's so much hotter than both of them. Both in the books, and in the show/movie.


Jael ~ *~ Syhren ~* ~ (wwwgoodreadscomprofilejael) | 182 comments Jess IA. Can't believe they left Eric out this equation


message 35: by Ranata (new)

Ranata Clark (thatchicknata) Jael wrote: "Jess IA. Can't believe they left Eric out this equation"

Eric isn't a big character yet. Her love interest is Bill so I see how they did that.


message 36: by Jess (new)

Jess | 116 comments Yeah, the article I think was based off the t.v show in which Eric isn't that prominent yet. I hope that changes next season. he's too hot to be a minor character :) lol


message 37: by Angie (new)

Angie (angiebowen) I do too Jess. I'm already really close to just giving up on the show but if they decide to downplay Eric so that Bill can remain the main character I'm definitely done.


message 38: by Jess (new)

Jess | 116 comments I completely agree!!


message 39: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (dawnv) Ok this is soo funny!

Mary Todd But didn't you think Caryle was a bit bright in the movie? I was like wow do I need glasses? Because there is bright and then there is this! I did like his back story though.

You know I did like Twilight but um I do not think I want to date a man than can hear the thoughts of my friends and listens without being chagrined how absurd not withstanding he was watching me sleep before we had a conversation. Not to mention if I was going to have an intimate relationship with a vamp I want to be bitten that is kind of the charm.
While I love Sookie and Eric I think I would like the Vampire King from Vegas for me how sad I cannot recall his name.

I'm already really close to just giving up on the show but if they decide to downplay Eric so that Bill can remain the main character I'm definitely done.
Jess and Angie I so agree but I do think they have made some choices that have fundamentally changed the Eric character


message 40: by Nicole (new)

Nicole (nlojeda) | 471 comments Mod
Butthead Bill! So funny that we continue to call him that. Who started it? LOL


message 41: by Theresa (new)

Theresa  (TSorrels) As far as the actors themselves go, there is no question for me: Moyer is the hotter of the two. Probably because I'm 28 and my taste doesn't run to pretty boys that are playing 17-year olds on TV. Pattinson is pretty - gorgeous eyes in real life - but as Kandice said (msg 14), he's jailbait!

As far as the characters they play, this is harder for me... on one hand, Bill (on TV) is hot, but he likes doing it in the dirt in a graveyard. Big ick factor there. Edward (in the movie), SPARKLES and won't put out. I don't know... tough decision. I think Bill is going to win with me.

And, lastly, as far as the book characters go... Edward, I guess. Sparkling aside, I have always thought Bill was a butthead - "Butthead Bill" is so fitting. :) Eric in the book would beat out both of them - especially amnesia Eric.


Jael ~ *~ Syhren ~* ~ (wwwgoodreadscomprofilejael) | 182 comments Nicole great job with changing the pic to Lafeyette. Damn he's scrumptious.


message 43: by Theresa (new)

Theresa  (TSorrels) I miss Lafeyette!

Thanks for reminding me, Jael, I meant to comment on the picture change yesterday. Good call, Nicole! :)


message 44: by Jess (new)

Jess | 116 comments I second that comment about a great picture choice. He is soo hot. Why did he have to leave??? why??


message 45: by Deanna (new)

Deanna (ibeeeg) As actors go... Moyer hands down.
As characters go... Bill... he is older and just better
Book characters...again...Bill.

Let me say though...if Eric was in the running then it would be Eric hands down for all 3 categories!!!!!


message 46: by jessica83 (new)

jessica83 Ward (stardustw83) | 32 comments I really don't think its fair to compare the two. One they are two different types of Vampires. The Twilight Saga portrays them as being beautifull creatures that can curb their hunger and drink from animals as to where in the Sookie Stackhouse series they don't instead its more sexual and they dont' really give up human blood they actually just get a synthetic form of it.
But if you are talking in general i like Edward way better because he at least knows how to show his love towards bella, as to where Bill is just a punk when it comes to sookie and is okay with letting Eric have her if he so desired to aquire her

That's exactly why we should compare them. They are different types of the same thing. You can still like both for different reasons...but totally worthy of comparison.

By the way...I pick Bill. Edward gets on my nerves every time I see a teenage girl clutching her Twilight books. The teen frenzy behind these books have soured them for me.




message 48: by sigmagal (new)

sigmagal | 7 comments I think that Bill is a better Vampire because lets face it he doesn't even kill animals. He just drinks synthetic blood. I also think that Bill is a little more adult. But on looks, I think that Edward wins hands down. There are a lot of things that I do not like about Bill and Edward. I think that Bill sucks for always disappearing when Sookie needs him. And like Bill Edward sucks for leaving Bella. But I think that Edward is genuine about his love for his leading lady. I think that Bill plays too many games.

I think that makes him the biggest punk of all!!
