Some people have called this show their guilty pleasure. The supporting characters like Caroline and Matt seem flat. Thankfully, Matt steps up and lets Elena feed off him. There is a psychic girl like Twilight. I am a huge fan of twilight, and I knew that they were trying to target us twilighters, but come on!! But it's sad how much they knocked off twilight.
Falls in love with girl. Same story as twilight except these teens drink and have sex. When Connor takes Jeremy, Matt and April hostage at the Grill, Stefan and Damon have a serious disagreement about the best course of action, and Elena is again caught between the two brothers. She came back from France not from their parents funeral or anything like that. Damon is just like his name demonic,attracting and tempting person. Katherine begins her game with Caroline, leaving a dark message to the Salvatore brothers.
But after I watched it, I couldn't believe the amount of drugs,sex, and alcohol abuse there was! Elena is another good chosen actress for the character. This is the age old vampire story: dark brooding vampire meets young human girl. She also has another friend called Meredith and her and Caroline are sorta enemies. Of course a love triangle is presented; Stefan's more demonic brother has an agenda to win Elena's affection. Even from watching the commercials I could tell that this would be a mediocrely acted, slightly sappy vampiric series, but since I only have basic cable and i love vampire stories ,I hoped they were saving the good stuff for the show.
It has been update to fit with the times a bit more. As of right now the second season is in the first few episodes of airing and the magic has not gone out. Sound off in the comments! Elena's best friend is a bubbly psychic, there is no shape shifters read werewolves yet nor mind readers yet , and Elena is not clumsy yet , although she does feel isolated and lives in a very small town. It also sticks to its plot, so what we are seeing is actually a story which has vampires as a part of it, not the other way around. True blood was bad enough but at least that had a bit of backbone, this is just bottom of the barrel viewing.
Watch episode 4, of course first episode isn't going to hook you in like its best show in the world. They have managed to obtain a bit of balance between the almost care-free world of high school and the dark gritty nature of what they can't see and don't know about. The acting isn't the greatest, but I have definitely seen much worse. I imagine it all made a much better book. Meanwhile, Klaus makes a discovery that leads to violence; and Elena and Damon go to the Gilbert lake house to help Jeremy conquer some dangerous inner demons When Stefan confronts Damon with a suspicion about Elena, Damon has no choice but to help Stefan investigate. All in all, despite it's flaws, every episode has a mystery to it; it's hard to guess what's going to happen. And what is it for? Did Bella and Edward get drunk and do drugs to get our attention? I'm a little sad that they are aiming so very hard for the Twilight crowd by throwing the romance factor in right away, but it has the potential to be pretty good.
Because you easily see her bright intelligence and innocence on her face. All of the characters are good looking and can deliver the snappy dialogue with ease. It will smooth out with time and become more comfortable for them and it will show through in the series. Also, why is a vampire spending so much time in high school? Apparently one cannot copyright an idea, only product. Im sick of seeing people bagging vampire diaries at the moment. Everyone else, you may proceed… Blood, blood and more blood! As the series progresses, Elena finds herself drawn to Stefan's brother Damon Salvatore resulting in a love triangle.
It has a romance like Twilight and the intensity of True Blood. Little does he know, Alaric is there listening. There are differences of course otherwise. While many tend to compare it with the two, it's actually very different. Tyler is comforted by his mysterious uncle Mason, who is the black sheep of his family. The former jock jerk really has come a long way. And did Plec make good on her promise that? This felt to me like actors that had not yet fit themselves into their characters.
I don't like nor dislike it really. There have to be stronger vampire stories that can be made into series that aren't cheesy clichés by the time they hit the small screen! I refer to it as smart writing, good acting, excellent storytelling, and wonderful viewing. Meredith walks to school on her first day of school not driven in a car with a friend. Okay, so there's been an overload of vampires. Anna's blood saves Jeremy and the 911 brings John to the hospital.
Far from it; this show only gets better. Is the ink a gift from the other side? Stefan and Klaus form an uneasy alliance to try and contain the danger that Connor has unleashed on the town. For starters, it follows the basic rules that apply to vampires, unlike Twilight where Edward Cullen just goes into Bella's house without any invitation, etc. J Smith's books the Vampire Diaries have been around already for last 15 years. And well that's as far into the first episode I saw because I couldn't stand watching it any further.
I really like the episodes, it is somehow fluent and has a taste of Twilight. There is nothing new he can learn, and it makes for a bit of a pedophile storyline. For anyone yes, even non 18-49 women demographic - we welcome the men! It was cheesy messed up series with messed up plot and characters! Books in order of reading:1. Even though Matt seems to have some roundness, Caroline just doesn't seem to change, she is always that annoying whiny girl;there are even times when Elena can be naive. I didn't think the acting was bad, but it was really predictable. I bet the producers are probably thinking up their next masterpiece. Though I haven't read the vampire diarys, I know that they changed the characters.
