    Sookie and Eric were never a viable couple? He and the writers are even dumber than I thought. The Bill flashbacks were the worst part of all 7 seasons.

    Your podcasts are great to listen to, EJ, but yikes, this one was horrible to sit through, just because of Buckner. Way to turn a show about celebrating what makes you different into crap about having a husband and a baby.

    Spent more time talking about Sookie’s faceless nobody husband than Eric/Pam’s relationship which is one of the most important? ARGH.
