The Vampire Diaries

I feel like the universe may want me to watch The Vampire Diaries. I am unsure whether to comply.

  1. I watched a good part of the first season but lost interest well before the end. In the final analysis it had its moments, but I couldn’t see anything it was doing that Joss Whedon didn’t do better the best part of a decade ago.

    I will admit, though, that the show had two things it did right:

    They weren’t afraid to pile on the plot twists and introduce new players at frequent intervals. There wasn’t time to get bored with anything as dull as a season-long story arc. (I really like story arcs, but I can understand why the creators of a new show might not want to risk starting something they couldn’t finish.)

    Ian Somerhalder was really terrific fun as the bad vampire brother Damon.

    In all fairness, I’ve been really bad at keeping up with new TV shows lately, so it may just be that if I’d stuck with it they’d have found a way to pique my interest again. I’d say give it a try.

  2. It’s fun to watch and beats most of the other free to air stuff. Not Buffy, or True Blood, but tries hard enough for a Monday night.

    Ian Somerhalder; so cute.

  3. watch it just for ian somerhalder. best eyes ever.

    otherwise, don’t bother reading the books; they are rotten.

  4. One of us! One of us!
