This is why True Blood beats the piss out of Twilight. The Vampires aren't glowing pussies.
I was going to four star this but then I noticed one of the related videos was the same clip uploaded with the title "What the Illuminati think of you".

Never seen the show. This almost makes me want to.
Sold, I'll pick up season one later today.
Pretty much what Irish Whiskey said. Stuff like this would be the last 5 minutes of every Lost episode where something actually happens. The rest is filler of Tara and her goddamn mother threatening to kill themselves, or a 20 something manchild trying to date a teenager.
This current plot might actually be interesting though. Since the beginning of the series I always wondered why they ignored the most interesting plot line, mainstream PR vampires vs violent old school killers, in favor of TARA AND HER GODDAMN MOTHER.
Good speech, but why would a 3,000 year old vampire affect a southern accent?

Because it's awesome?
He might just pick it up naturally after a hundred and fifty years, but you have to think that vampires would get pretty good at blending in with their neighbors, so as to no arouse suspicion.
But mostly because it's awesome.
Because accents change when you move around and settle elsewhere. It's a coping mechanism to hide the fact that you're an outsider.

If he learned English in the South first, he would have picked up the accent. The same as when people in India or Asia study English by copying British accents if that is where their language learning program is based or if they learn from British teachers.
I hate this show but I enjoy this scene. My friend who watches the show called me into the room just to see it, and I'm not surprised to find the clip here.
I'm just going to pretend this clip exists because it does and the blahfest that spawned it doesn't.
Telling yourself 'True Blood is awesome' because you frame it in the context of how bad Twilight sucks is like singing the praises of being forcibly sodomized with a unwashed, sticky dildo instead of a broken beer bottle.
They both suck. Massively. The characters are weak and tiresome, they both play off to childish soap opera stories, and neither offers anything -at all- new to the genre.
If there was any integrity left to the vampire-horror genre (which I doubt) both series do little more than degrade it by polishing it up and dumbing it down.
One turd polished, the other a stinking lump. Both still turds.

I've now watched up to this point, maybe 2/3 of the way through season 3, and I couldn't disagree more with the whole turd thing, at least regarding "True Blood". I love it. I have no opinion on Twilight, having not seen or read any of it.
Russell Edgington is the greatest vampire character ever, because he is so menacing, yet his motives are completely understandable. He wants to enslave the human race to prevent them from destroying the world. If I were a vampire, this would probably make perfect sense to me. Edgington is sort of like Hannibal Lector without the insanity.
But I agree with the naysayers that this scene is in not representative of True Blood up to this point, but that may change.
