Eric the Viking-cum-Vampire Spin-off Series

Eric The Vampire

Although I’ve been a long-term fan of Alan Ball, I was diabolically bored by series 2 of True Blood, which Ball developed for TV.

The only saving grace was Eric Northman. Before becoming a vampire, Eric was a Viking. Viking to vampire. Really, it’s too much. *swoons*

So I was thinking Eric should be excised from the True Blood swill and given his own TV show.

What would happen on his show, you ask? Here’s a snippet of how it might go.

INT. MEDIEVAL CASTLE – NIGHT

A large ornate bathroom. The tub is filled. A crystal wine glass of blood-red liquid sits on the ledge.

ERIC enters. He is naked.

                                                                  

                                                                   ERIC  
                                                        (sexily)
                                            Blah blah blah…

                                                          (etc.)
                                                       

EXT. FORREST CLEARING – NIGHT

The moon is full. Owls hoot and animals cry out. Leaves rustle eerily.

ERIC enters. He is naked.

                                                                  

                                                                   ERIC  
                                                        (angrily)
                                            Blah blah blah… 

                                                        (etc.)

You see what I mean? It writes itself.
