    My wife and daughter (who remember the books better than i) confirmed my suspicions that *none* of this stuff is from the books, or even in character, despite the person who, on the comment on another story, explained pityingly to me just how excruciatingly faithful it was, and how i must not know anything about writing…Examples of Wrongness: "Steve Newlin, the Fellowship of the Sun's big kahuna" has never appeared or (so far as we can recall) even been alluded to in the books, and, therefore of course, neither has his wife.Luke doesn't seem to be a character from the books.And "Daphne, Merlotte's new waitress (and Sam's likely new love interest)," is definitely from the books, where Sam appears to have a crush on Sookie that she is either not noticing or is politely ignoring…And, even if the episodes adapted the books much more closely than they do, the tone of the series is just plain wrong (though i suspect, from that comment's word choice and general tone, that the commentor is one of the large number of enthusiasic fangrrls (or maybe fanboyz) who is totally style-deaf.

      And (step) Daughter Helen agrees with me that the still at the head of this aricle, given the show's general nasty-litte-kid sleaziness, looks rather as if she's serving up the new businessman's lunch special at Merlotte's.
