B2S.com Gay Television Couple of the Year Award 2010: Russell Edgington and Talbot of HBO’s "True Blood"!

Alright so Russell Edgington the vampire king of Mississippi is evil, manipulative and Machiavellian. And his lover Talbot could have been a cast member of The A Vampire List: Mississippi but never had a gay couple been on television before that dealt with the ups and downs of their relationship and stayed together for over 700 years while having an open relationship to boot!

Even after Talbots death at the hands (and penis) of Eric Northam the loss and grief is enough to send Russell so far into the depths of insanity that he carries Talbots remains around in an urn talking to it and swearing to avenge his death.  Now that is LOVE!  Demented evil love but love all the same.

So forget Modern Family’s bourgeois Cam and Mitchell and the sugary sweet puppies of GLEE Kurt and Blaine.   BORING!

When it comes to being in love forever…..and I mean FOREVER no gay couple on television even comes close to beating Russell and Talbot of True Blood.
