I’m a bit rusty at the blogging lark so please excuse me while I descend into an incoherent babbling mush in the corner. Oh my Salvatore!
Almost a month ago, I was introduced to The Vampire Diaries TV series. I have to be honest, I was expecting it to be a freak-of-the-week affair like so many other TV shows since Buffy The Vampire Slayer hit the screen. Or I was expecting it to be like Gossip Girl (I only watch it for Chuck Bass and even then it’s few and far between).
But I was wrong. Very wrong.
I’ve no shame in saying I watched both seasons of The Vampire Diaries over a period of a few days, let’s just say very power naps are not something to be ridiculed. Now I’m the biggest squeeing fan-girl in the corner. I am, as I suspect many others out are also, rooting for a Damon – Elena relationship.
In terms of writing, everything is so well thought out. Many of the plot points within the series are suggested or hinted throughout but were not revealed until it was required. Watching every episode is like watching a horror film each time, so much can happen, there’s lots of tension and it’s a series that when you watch it the second or third time you come at it from a completely different perspective (Stefan was always holier-than-thou) and context.
If you have not seen it, go watch it from the start otherwise you’ll be lost. The first few episodes are setting up everything so give it some time. Plus there’s lots of killing by a certain vampire named Damon…
This trailer doesn’t do the series justice but if I picked another one it would just give it all away.
