The clean and coiffed look doesn't make much sense to me for a man who worked the land all his life and is currently re-establishing his home. There's plenty of physical labor in that. Though I'm sure he will clean up nice for special occasions. Wouldn't be gentlemanly otherwise.

I even looked past the whole vampire database obsession. I loved him all the way up until the betrayal, couldn't BELIEVE what went down and then afterwards, I kept thinking he'd come back to Sookie or somehow sever his tie with Lorena and redeem himself. I still can't really believe that his relationship with Sookie was a set-up and nothing more. It may have started that way but I still believe he genuinely fell for her very early on.
Yep, I'm definitely twisted.

I do like this actor in the role but can't help picturing what Richard Armitage could do with it.
I think RA might be a tiny bit too mature-looking for the part esp when seen in the context of the rest of the cast but oh my God! we need more RA all the time!

I'm thinking they are sometimes making him look kinda ragged to signify that he's hungry? Thirsty. Maybe.
Good call. He's dehydrated!

When Bill talked about his past, I got the impression that his wife and kid(s?) died before he was turned, possibly due to the war, but maybe from something else like a sickness. It wasn't clear, but while talking to Sookie, it definitely sounded like he didn't outlive them due to the immortality.

I think the writers need to give them less exposition and more genuine conversation though. I find their actual dialogues clunky and unnatural often. The actors do a lot with little. Hopefully as the rules of the Sookieverse are explained they can leave the exposition behind.

My favourite little bit of physical acting by Stephen Moyer is the way -- several times -- he quickly pulled back when Sookie suddenly invaded his personal space. I guess Bill was raised in a time when a gentleman kept a polite distance between himself and the lady he was courting. Or maybe it's a case of a wise vamp knowing to keep some distance between himself and the neck of a human he enjoys conversing with. During his evening walk with Sookie, Bill says, "Humans are usually more squeamish about vampires than you are", and the way he jerks back from her sometimes reinforces the impression that her friendly ease with him is unusual and possibly alarming. He expects decent humans to know not to trust him.

There may be some other mistakes on the show and I guess there's no excuse for the non-immortal characters getting it wrong (and even if they did, I'd still be forgiving--this may be HBO and we expect more, but it's still TV...and I don't let it drag a show or film down for me too badly when I hear bad Canadian voices, or Brit accents put on by non-Brits), but this seems like one of the easiest aspects to fan-wank away.

Moyer is super sexy though. The first scene where he walks into the bar and everything else just fades to black around him and his glorious cheekbones totally gave me shivers. Also, he knows how to work the dialogue well and his chemistry with and Anna is good.
