yes there is a difference between what type of thing they are doing(movie and show), but that doesn't mean necesarilly that just because tvd is a show that it was going to be better. it just was. and actually the fact that it is a show could actually have hurt it, but they did it right. becuz it wasn't a movie it had to decide if it wanted to do just stuff from the books and elaborate or add new stuff, and what new stuff would they add. also, tvd is way better as everyone has said in terms of acting and plot. i mean kristen stewart is being paid 20 million for the next 2 twilight movies and she can't act at all. the movies have such a huge budget but they still dont c ome across as that good. while, tvd has a smaller budget because its a tv show and they still manage to come out with good effects, good acting, and good writing every week, which for me makes the show and prooves in terms of quality that i really like tvd better.
