This is a very good show I enjoyed watching all of it's seasons. They have some good action, mystery, horror, romance and suspense. They make really good episodes, I think the a little to much romance, Elena going from brother to brother makes the show a turn off. In my opinion the writers feel like this is what makes the entire show which is sad. They have a lot of cool stuff to explore and were always focus on these 3 love triangle that for me kills the show. I just wish they choose a partner to be with and just leave it. Going on like this season to season is enough its time to move on to something greater than this.
The show is great and i'm a die hard DE shipper :) although I believe it'll be SE ultimately. Favourite characters is Elena,Damon,Caroline... I just thouht the originals and klaus character were introduced too soon because it's a great show and it's only season 3. who comes next to be the villain (although klaus seems hard to kill I mean he is still around )? for example in Smallville they brought Zod back multiple times and hopefully it won't be the same story. VD keeps you glued every week because every episode has a mini cliffhanger or introduction to the next episode in the final minutes or even seconds.
This show is amazing and constantly demonstrated that it has some really good writers of great expertise. It follows the life of a 17 year old girl (elena) and how she seems to be centrifugal force to all the other factors in the show. How the writers manipulate the casts as well as every piece of detail and prop is excellent, not only to the intensity and mystery of the show but also to the witty thinking of characters and they critically try to outwit each other and try to stay alive. There is excellent mastery of the character's relations despite the infighting. Understandably, it is the constant infighting that causes the pack to be close-knitted as they out smart the detrimental forces that rises against them in the turbulent, mysterious drama. The plot and sub plots are excellent. Overall, the plot and the manipulation of characters, detail and props are the factors that propels this outstanding show.
I have to start with the end because well it blew my mind. If your anything like me you have been waiting for this kiss & I have to sy it did not disappoint. WOW the chemistry between Damon & Elena is undeniable and explosive. I just wonder if it will last.
OMG! I love this show Nina Dobrev is so good at playing Elena and Paul Wesley is such a good actor the plots are amazing, I love how they add things in at unexpected moments where odd but awesome things go wrong for Elena and Stefan and I like how the people that you don't expect to die, die at the right moments.
I also like how they don't just stick to one theory of the vampire they have it all, witch, hybrid, werewolf its amazing. BEST SHOW EVER!
There is nothing in this show that I dont like. I mean the show keeps me on my toes, with all the twists in every episode. The season finale gave me exactly what i wanted, ripper Stefan, Delena kiss, and Anna returning. I recommend this show to everyone, it is rated pg 13 but the show doesnt have the sex in every episode, or the drugs. The only time they have drinking is when Damon is getting himself a berben(however you spell it). Anyway, best show on the planet!
yes its a teen drama and yes it has vampires so no critics would have balls to accept that its trending numero uno of tv. From script to acting they have till date not failed to deliver on entertainment. so get over it and rank it no.1 already.
So why was this not an instant hit from verybeginning like Greys. Instant answers..deviated from the book (thank god for that) so originalbook readersskeptikal, teen drama on vampire..haven'twe seen all that already in twilight..but wait.. there was a difference. Here the heroine is not already to jump in on bloodsuckingbandwagon, is notmesmerizedtill its point ofshallowness abt vampire beauty air quotes. So that made it more real. Along with writers weaving an intriguing plot they have so far kept the characters true to their role. So why number 7 when all others who rank above it lacklusterin comparison. Give it its due spot of number one tv drama. It totaly deserves it...
This is one of those shows that actually keeps me on my toes. The first few eps of season 1 may remind people of a certain travesty of a movie or book that is considered sadly a cultural phenomenon (it is a so-called saga.. please don't hate me) ...
This is one of those shows that actually keeps me on my toes. The first few eps of season 1 may remind people of a certain travesty of a movie or book that is considered sadly a cultural phenomenon (it is a so-called 'saga'.. please don't hate me) or just repel people from watching but as the season develops, it gets more interesting and gets farther from the aforementioned 'saga.' Later on, season after season, each episodes turn out as if they're season finales themselves. Definitely a show that gives you something to talk about (and sometimes to snark about). All in all, it's a fun, exciting, suspense-filled show that doesn't really cater to teenagers anymore (or so I feel like it) since it has too many blood (sucking) involved and yeah, some violence too. But still, this is a show to watch out for!
This show is really just too silly for words. They have a bunch of REALLY talented actors and actresses, that - for some mysterious reason - act pretty badly, most of the time. (Example: the talented Ian Somerhalder who keeps doing that annoying eye-thing and wiggles his eyebrows so much I am in danger of getting epilepsy... I am SO blaming the directors!)
The script is holeridden, lacking all sense of logic - and all the absolute truths are questioned or proven wrong at least once. The characters contradict themselves constantly, they keep talking loudly to eachother about secrets (a'la daytime soap) and Elena is, honestly, a spoiled, stupid, boring brat who seems to be allergic to thinking, and who doesn't have any common sense at all. She proves this by constantly second guessing every single piece of good advise she ever gets.
Still: I kinda love it! It's silly, it's illogical and it's transparent - but it's also FUN, witty (Damon - I adore your oneliners and snarky comments!) and has a really great soundtrack. Result: I can't stop watching it.
I blame my mom for getting me hooked onto the show. I had originally said i wasn't going to get into the show because I had missed the series premiere way back in the 1st season. That didnt last long. When the season 1 dvds came out i bought it. And when the season 2 dvds came out i bought those. I am finally watching The Vampire Diaries on tv when it originally airs on tv. It is so much better that way. I am telling you, I can't un hook myself. I love this show. It has so much suspense and action and to make it all better they add a touch of love and romance like all tv dramas. It is the perfect combination. I will definitely continue watching this show until its time is up. :) Go vampire Diaries. you are awesome!!!!
well i expected the finale to be more interesting and exciting but it was a little disappointment. Klaus's blood was only solution, guessed that much, but i was hoping them to do something different and more impressive to get that. This overall has been superb, way way better than 1st season but last 3-4 eps have been disappointment, could have been better. Anyways, Bad Stefan is fine, but (if)good Damon.. that will suck!!!... His aggression and arrogance is what makes this show exciting and watchable. Katherine, after being in action for almost half d season has been spectator for rest. Elijah had it coming. You just leave a hybrid and walk around. Waiting for 3rd season and hope it will be even better.
This show is quickly becoming one of my favorites on TV. Although many people are growing weary of the vampire fad, I have to say that the story writing and incisive plot twists make this great show stick out among the multitude of recycled garbage out there.
Although the target audience of this show is predominantly teenagers, this drama can be enjoyed by the masses of young adults and beyond - assuming you can look past the high school setting.
If you've never watched this show I only have one forewarning for you: please reserve your judgement until you've seen at least the third and fourth episodes! Many people have said that the pilot and even the second episode reminded them way too much of the proverbial Twilight series.
At any rate, I strongly recommend this series to anyone looking for excellent drama, romance, action and even a little humor!
As a grown man who sneers at the Twilight generation, I am stunned, shocked, bewildered. This show is brilliance nonpareil, an underestimated gem in the TV landscape, and this episode hammered that home in spades.
I mean, holy frakking expletive. By what right does this DevelopmentallyDelayed-titled CW twilightsploitation bullexpletive have being SO DAMN GOOD?!?! Brilliant, multilayered, intelligent plotting; lovable, believable, consistent characters; dogged adherence to continuity and fascinating world-building; steady, encyclopedic, well-paced delivery of a smartly conceived mythos; regular "I shoulda seen that coming, but I didn't, because the show's smarter than I am" twists---on an episode-to-episode basis... I have more mindgasms each episode watching this than I ever had watching LOST... hell, even BSG. Judge me on this, I dare you. I frakkin' dare you :P
underage: sex, drugs, and drinking. really? that's what you've resorted to? we all know that kids do this, but to glorify it to the teenage fan base is appalling. i used to love the show, but now im about to stop watching b/c of this.
I love this show it is a good Vampire show not like Vampire movies these days cause Twilight is the worst and i hate people comparing TVD to Twilight it is completely different and its not fair to TVD because twilight is so cheesy and so boring.
In this decade its rare to see a good vampire show or movie but this show is so great in many ways it has everything humor, romance, action, blood, and violence. Every person in the planet should give this show a chance because its that good and its one of the best shows on TV. I love this show so much that i dont want it to end ever and every season it gets better and better (not like many dramas now most of them get worse and then better and worse all over again)so please creators and writers keep up the good work.
I love how each episode ends in a cliffhanger, which keeps you waiting for the next episode. I also like the fact even though this show is in its third season it still has a great story line. The show always keeps me guessing with all its twists and turns.
Yeah, yeah, yeah...I know, I'm an old fart and I need to get over myself and blah de blah quackety quack but you're right, when it comes to vampires I AM old school and I just can't seem to get myself behind these new age vampires!I grew up watching Cristopher Lee in all of his Hammer Studios Dracula epics...back when men were men, women were women and VAMPIRES were VAMPIRES!! If you were to hold up a crucifix to Cristopher Lee at his vampiric best, he'd vow to return with a demonic hiss...his fang filled face suffused with Satanic rage as he turned away and crashed his way through your picture window! Hold up a crucifix to one of these new age vampires, he turns himself into a dachshund, runs around in a circle, pisses all over your rug and runs under your couch and growls at you. (sigh).
I love the plot...I've keep watching reruns and never get bored + the vampires are HOT!!...pretty sure am in love with Damon Salvatore...i can't get enough of him ;)...its got humor(i love that, its got no explicit sexual content and ...like I said.., the men are HOT!BTW, its nothing like True Blood..i din't even finish the first season..t'was so boring...and I also din't like Twilight Movies much...thought they were overrated..especially the Edward character.and it dragged on and on and on.....Anyway back to V.D, the scenes where the vamps or the werewolves turn look so real...or where they are drinking blood from their victims...u kinda get the real picture...unlike some vamp movies that look fake from the word go.
The Vampire Diaries is based around the life of Elena Gilbert, a typical high school teenager until Stefan and Damon Salvatore arrive in Mystic Falls, VA. Enter vampires, witches and werewolves.. Oh my! The tension and drama amongst the supernatural in this town is about to explode. Not to mention the regular human folk who are being killed off left and right, despite the best efforts of the secret Founder's Council. The plot is constantly changing, evolving with crazy antics every week, keeping me on my toes and intrigued to see what will happen next. Not only are they sexy and intoxicating on the show, but he actors do a superb job portraying their characters, especially Candice Accola as Caroline Forbes, Ian Somerhalder as Damon Salvatore and Nina Dobrev playing both Elena Gilbert and Katherine Pierce. Dobrev's ability to play both characters is amazing, without her even having to speak a word, the viewer knows which character has entered the scene. Amazingly entertaining plot, great acting and keeps me wanting more!
Now this show i love... and of course my favourite character is Stefan.
Elena needs to get herself sorted out because can't be loving two guys at the same time. I mean both she and Stefan loves each other... and she's starting to develop feelings for Damon. I think she's gonna be unfaithful to Stefan seeing that she's always around Damon and Stefan's not around; he's out there living up to his words, helping Klaus in return for saving Damon's life.
I wonder how Stefan's gonna get loose from Klaus grips and come back from his evil side.
It's funny how things turn out... Stefan is now seen as the evil brother and Damon the good.
This show is the dictionary definition of "jumping on the bandwagon." Vampires are in right now (True Blood, Twilight, etc.) so let's patch a show together that'll feed on their flames. This show misses the mark so badly someone should call out "Fore!" This entire pilot, the entire time, has music playing in the background -- a barrage of dopey high school rock ballads set to such important scenes as making morning coffee. There might be, I can't remember for sure, maybe 60 seconds without the sappy, simple-minded mood-rock that is apparently all the rage since Grey's Anatomy. Here's an idea: when people are walking down the sidewalk, I don't need to have my heartstrings pulled on -- they're walking down the sidewalk!(I put 'they're walking down the sidewalk' in all caps and had to change it because this notepad program won't allow all caps -- LAME ALERT) To compound this point -- when people are having conversations about being admitted to school that year, I don't need to hear a goofy one-hit-wonder rockboy band singing lame vibro-pitched lyrics about "loving you, oooohhh heeeyyy." Take any Kyle XY episode (as attrocious as that thought is), remove all audio, replace that audio by lip-synching in any random dialogue from any Saved by the Bell episode and then overlay a soundtrack consisting of every Oasis B-side song ever made and you would have a show better than this one. I know its set in high school, but can the kids like, ya know, like not talk so like stupid like all of the time, omg. I am a huge fan of the vampire genre and am apalled at the lack of imagination and intuition this show has. I know its a CW show, I know its targeted most likely for high schoolers, but good God man, when I was in high school I had Twin Peaks -- is this the best they could do. Forget about this show and watch True Blood, when you get through with that, forget about this show again and watch Twin Peaks, after that watch one more episode of The Vampire Diaries and realize how bad it sucks!
Another vampire book adaption hmmm.... i dont see what's up with the hype with this show, i just dont. The show is so formulaic, and i kinda dont see what's the point of watching another vampire series/movie when we have twilight and true blood. Though i only enjoyed several minutes of the show, but those enjoyment are not enough for me to watch another installment of the show. This adaption is terribly transmitted into the small screen. Seems writers and producers are trying too much. I gave this show 6 stars because I love the book. ......Still, I wont be surprise is this show stick around for a little while. In the end, this show has the standard quality that the most cw shows has.
