Bringing Catherine back into the show so suddenly is terrible, desperate writing. Was this merely a way to write Jeremy off for a select no of episodes before they find some ridiculous way to write him back in? No doubt he will be dealt back in through what Silas has planned.
The addition of this Silas as the first immortal, who was never previously mentioned, is sop***ric at best. I guess the originals weren't that original after all. The new nemesis I can imagine. I wonder if the writers have any clue what is going to happen 3 episodes from now?
Rebekah is an original, and yet the show has her playing one of those blonde helpless barbies, usually the first to die in those awful hack'n'slash films. It would be nice to see the vampires in this show act like actual vampires instead of brooding teenagers. Especially Elena. She is still just as boring as ever. If it weren't for Damon, I doubt this show would survive.
Klaus. I think we all remember the long build up to his first appearance, only to be completely underwhelmed. He acts like a trust fund brat with daddy issues. A self absorbed asshole. Not a vampire who's lived for centuries. His father, though only present for a few episodes, added some much needed class to the show. Too expensive to have him as a regular maybe?
Elijah on the other hand was a great character. Much more representative of his race than all the others. A classic vampire who exuded menace, mixed with detachment, a strong sense of honor, and extreme violence. This is what you would expect from a vampire as old as he is. He didn't relate to anyone else in the show, which I thought was a great thing. Such a pity was never a main character.
I can say all this because I've watched every episode. I'm hoping in vain that this show will improve, but considering the target demographic, unlikely.
Although I can see many problems that could occur now that the Originals will have their own show, all I can think about is how fun it will be to see Elena now that she's 'flipped the switch'. A badass vampire Elena is what I've been waiting for since season1.
Long time TVD fan here! I can tell you the exact moment I fell in love with this show. It was that scene in season one when Bonnie lit all of those candles by accident, incase you were wondering. This show sucked me in and was building momentum throughout season 2 aka the best season of any television show, ever! Katherine, werewolves, Katherine, moonstones, KATHERINE!. Although I liked season 3, I didn't exactly love it. And I thought season 4 was a train wreck in the beginning. I didn't love the idea of vampire Elena, and I was under the impression that the writers didn't either. Enter vampire cure, which I thought was an even more terrible idea. However, after tonight and episode 80, all is forgiven. I thought I hated the cure, I thought I hated vampire Elena, I thought I hated Silas, but I was wrong. So incredibly wrong. The last 15 minutes of this episode was a game changer, for sure! Only person can use the cure? Silas' awakening came at the apparent expense of Jeremy's life? Katherine is back in town?! The writers of the TVD really know how to turn everything around! Just when you think they've started slacking, they bitch slap you in the face with some major plot twist. Bravo!
I for one like the originals' story better than the love triangle. One wonders how many seasons they can keep switching partners. One reason why they didn't kill off Klaus at the end of the last season was because of his popularity. Elijah will also appear in the spin off. I hope they introduce the baby who supposedly 'died' in the old country as they have now killed off 2 of them.
With the ability to have flashbacks over 1,000 years the Originals may well overtake TVD in the ratings and it wouldn't take a great drop to finish it off. I like Prof Shane and hope we see Silas who may take over from Klaus as the villain as they are now really showing his vulnerable , human side as when he saved Caroline (yet again!). I like Stefan and Rebekkah together and am really getting tired of Damon. the only way to take him is for him to take the cure despite saying he couldn't think of anything worse.
this show is good. i mean really good. but it is so NOT going according to the book. In the book, Elena NEVER and i mean NEVER breaks up with Stefan and though there was the issue with Damon, her and Stefan never break up. So what is going on with this show so far? and what's up with the fact that there is no Meredith?! you know her other best friend???
I absolutely love the show so far. Great story based on the books by LJ Smith. It is about time they are making a tv series after this author as she is an amazing writer and this is an amazing store of two vampires, one good and one evil, who fight over the soul of Elena. So far they are doing an amazing job of portraying the books into a tv show. Love the actors they chose to portray the characters and how they introduced them in the show. I hope it is going to be a show that is here to stay.
I love anything with vamps and I too caught this through Netflix. I like the ideas but it feels like its going downhill since the introduction of The Originals, I know I'm behind most of you episode wise, I will stick with it for now.
The first three seasons recently came on Netflix and I finished them in 2 weeks -that's how addicted I was. The story, acting, and characters are so compelling. I really hope that they can keep it up in the fourth season!! The relationship development between Elena/Stefan, Elena/Damon, and even Damon/Stefan is so well done. What scares me is that there are a few glimpses of inconsistencies and re-used story lines but hopefully this will not be a problem. Also am I the only one who would like to see Damon with Katherine? We haven't seen her in a while but they seem to have a better personality match than Damon and Elena
First of all, i LOVE this show!! Then, i think that.... hmmmm i am not 100% sure but i prefer Stefan with Elena and i would like to see Caroline with I like Tayler too... but i think that Caroline with Claus will be more interesting, because Claus become more sensitive when he is with Caroline. Oh and lastly..... Damon, he is GOD! I am from Greece and i could say that he is an ancient beauty God!! ;-)))
I watched it earlier and refer to it as the Twilight wannabe because of the similarity btw them and the love triangle thingie but was proved wrong. It tends to be cheesy at times and predictable but overall a good entertainment with teen drama, romance and supernatural creatures.
I love this show, and I cant WAIT for the next episode. I dunno about everyone else, but I LOVE Damon and Elena as a couple. Stefan and Elena never stuck for me, and I feel a stronger connection between her and Damon. The connection has obviously built over the seasons, and I feel like it's time for at LEAST a full season of pure Delena, no sire bond and 100% real. Stelena fans had their fun, it's our turn! Come on Julie!
This is the best show ever created in the history of the world. In a small comment box, one can't explain how badly one can get addicted as well as obsessed with this show. I love it! I could give my life for it without a second thought!
I love this show I had never seen any of the episodes before a few days ago when I found it on netflix. I have in the last few days went from episode one to now being all the way caught up and cant wait for the second half of season 4 to start. I love this show!!!
The vampire diaries is an amazing show and it has been my favort show since 2009 when it started and I feel obsessed. Nina Dobrev is my and Paul Wesley is my love and Ian is the perfect bestie or brother for me.
Vote for The vampire diaries for best supernatural serie!
the vampire diaries truly is a fantastic show. The actors and actresses have amazing talent and this season is better than ever. The best thing about the vampire diaries is that its easy to fall in love or hate other characters and fans love rooting for their team (stelena/delena). Truth is I would never say this was an amazing show if it wasn't, there isn't a night where i don't think about the vampire diaries ( i think it made me crazy) and wonder/ go over everything that has happened in the show. Sometimes I try not to watch it sometimes because it makes me think too much about what just happened in the episode and it drives me crazy because I am addicted and probably need help :)
The Vampire diaries is my life and changed everything about my life and I love it.
TVD is just a great show, with so much drama and plotlines for 8 seasons all concentrated in the first three. I think now it's risking being boring if the same themes and plotlines are presented again. The first episodes weren't that good for me, but nowi it's really paying off. We'll see if the writers will be able to offer some new interpretations, I think there's still plenty of good to be seen!
I think that season 4 is much better than season 3 but not as much better as season 1. I like the new direction the show has taken, but I hope it won't last all season long before they find the cure. What I dislike is there's too much characters. Too many stories related that you can't even remember what was related to previous seasons. But the show has grown, it's still a good tv show to watch... It's not Buffy, but after 4 seasons, I think this show is here to stay many more seasons.
Surprise! This isn't the teenybopper vampire soap you'd think it was. The Vampire Diaries is the television middle ground between Buffy and True Blood, and while it's not as great as the two, it packs a serious punch.
To be honest, I'm not liking Season 4. It's taken them 6 months to do TVD Season 4 and its turned out fucking shit. Its starting to become repetitive and you can easily say that something is going to happen in the next episode now. Its awful. I also miss Alaric, the show is NOTHING without Alaric.
