  • please just end the show

    i used to love this show, watched it from the very beginning. Now season 6 has ruined the whole show for me. when my boyfriend watches it i just want to turn it off and its so sad because i was in love. theyre bringing in stupid characters and after the 5th season, shouldve just ended it because the plot sucks, seems like they ran out of ideas, and the newer actors are horrible horrible actors. especially all these stupid witches. its getting so old and makes me so angry the way that its gone. i just wish the writers would kill everyone off the show and stop bringing people back. i mean theres only a certain amount of times you can raise people from the dead before its not even sad that they died in the first place because guess what, theyre just gona come right back. this show is the biggest disappointment of any show ive ever seen. even one tree hill and that show was on for ten yrs too long.
  • The Failings of TVD

    The Vampire Diaries started with a decent, honest concept, and then it became what every show does when it is dragged out for too long. The main plot becomes the romantic pairings and the subplot, is the actual plot. Rather than focus on character dynamics, development or unique villains, we see everything to be based on romantic involvement. I understand that romance is a major factor but when you do not even know the plot of the show, then you know it is getting worse. If you don't know the direction of which it is heading to, then you understand why less and less viewers tune in.

    In the previous seasons, mostly Season 1-2, there was a heavy concentration on plot, friendship, development and advancement of abilities. As the seasons drag on, we see the characters become one dimensional, romantically inclined, characteristically declined and sexually active. The villains are boring, one dimensional, uninteresting individuals who have no prior reason to be on the show. Many times, they are one dimensional.

    The writers do forget that a plot is suppose to come together, as a whole, not in crooked subplots that are disjointed. In the MANY romantic subplots, the main plot is forgotten and often left for the last three episodes. This is what makes the Vampire Diaries pathetic. You can focus on the romance but you have to remember the plot. The plot is what makes a show interesting. Just pairing up people, for the sake of viewership, just turns viewers off.

    Its sad to see a show fall. But it happens, especially when there are tons of love triangles, love interests, guest stars and the failure to use their main cast.
  • Season 6th of the vampire diaries

    Season 6 has become way boring! the vampire diaries was the first TV show that I always chose to watch, now it has become the last one! the first 4 episodes were way boring and it has turned from my best favorite TV show to the least favorite one.
  • The Heart Of A Child

    The Vampire Diaries is a great series overall, however, staff writers of the series are becoming sloppy with regards to the nature of the content. It's one thing to see vampires biting necks, but it's a completely different matter when principle characters start glorifying "massacres" - Damon, series 5 finale, and the whole tearing people's heads off and pulling people's hearts out. Not to mention the constant snapping people's necks. But don't worry, it's okay, characters can come back to life. There is no heaven or hell, it doesn't matter what you do in life, you just hang out in between worlds for a while, you're forgiven and then you come back and get to do whatever bad things you want all over again. Certain writers of The Vampire Diaries are "seriously" disturbed individuals and it is "disgusting" that the censors of television or, heaven's forbid, Warner Bros executives, don't wrangle in their uneducated employees who are giving impressionable minds "green lights" to commit suicide or inflict harm upon others. The Vampire Diaries started off okay, now it just "sucks"! Staff writers, get rid of them. Hire some truly talented writers who aren't psychologically disturbed!
  • what would make it perfect

    hhhhhhhhhhhhhh the only thing i liked about this series is when that vam-hunter said

    :"Good luck to you lads , the girl(lil ho elena) brought it on you , may you rot in it "

  • Dawson's Creek with pointy fangs

    That's right, if wasn't for the fangs this could be called Dawson's Creek. It has the same teenage drama, only with vampires. And this is a very poor comparison, because I think Dawson's Creek is one of the best shows I've ever seen. But like all the cast of Dawson's Creek I grew up and I can't stand this empty teenage dramas any longer. The last one I managed to follow without the urge to cut my wrists was The OC.

    Honestly CW should follow HBO and bury this waste of time... preferably with a stake in its heart.

  • This show sucks

    WAY to go off the books and add crap that never happened in her books on TV. If you are going to use a book for the series PLEASE remember that there are still people who read and have read the book way before this was a TV series. ONCE you add stuff that never happened I STOPED WEATCHING!!! THIS SHOW SHOULD BE CANCELED!
  • no no no

    so everything was going brilliant, this was by far one of my favourite series to watch. i was watching episodes everyday and became slightly addicted, i couldnt help myself but look up a few spoilers to find that elena falls for damon and ends things with stefan? due to this, i can literally no longer watch tvd, im so disapointed and annoyed at whoever decided that would be a great plot twist, as i loved stefan and elena, they were tvd! i also later discovered bonnie and jeremy die? i was getting so attached to the characters and their relationships, such a good story build up and i dont want to ruin it by watching on, it isnt possible. words cant describe how disapointed i am, really. im rating a 1, because its heartbreaking that elena falls for damon and leaves stefan then all the good guys die.

    Honestly, i dont get why the choice betwn damon and stefan is tough. damon rules...

    *your argument is invalid
  • Holy shit will Elena ever stop crying and this show just keep getting worse.

    This show cant get worse, I cant believe CW has space for stupid crap like TVD and the origianls but no space for Tomorrow People.

    They should have ended the series strong in season 3 itself, go on girls I honestly dont care if u dislike this. Just sharing my opinion.
  • These Vampires Suck

    The show was super awesome until Elena turned into a vampire, then everything went to shit. Also, they think they are being clever with all these plot twists but it is just getting ridiculous! I swear to god if something happens to Matt, I am completely done with this show, not everybody on it needs to be supernatural for it to get views. If anything they are hurting they rating by just killing everybody off!
  • Katherine dies, the show dies

    Katherine Freakin' Pierce was the life of the show. Everyone else has become boring and predictable; I can't even stand to watch scenes with Elena anymore. Like, what's so exciting about her? Nothing. The only thing preventing her from getting killed off, is the fact that she's the main character. Katherine, however, has always had more potential; how can the writers just throw away something as precious as the Goddess who gave the Salvatore brothers eternal life? She's their beginning and their end, always will be. Whether they like it or not. I believe Katherine deserves a lot more credit than she gets, and definitely does NOT deserve being dragged to hell. Like, wtf? People who have died before her and successfully passed through Bonnie were no better than her. They just hadn't lived and suffered as much, hadn't had as many chances to screw up as Kat did. I'm sure if they had been put in her shoes for a few years, they would've become a thousand times worse than her.
  • This show is a stalemate!

    Wow.. this show has literally gone to the dogs now!

    Season 4 clearly showed they had no more plots and brains...

    and now season 5... they just hitting the Repeat button!!

    Sad... it was so good before!


  • i didnt seen worst story like this.

    How elena will leave stefan ! thats disgusting . He Did Every Thing For . How She leaves him . Stefan kept his life to Save her. When elena loves Stephen no one gone . Whenever she starts feeling on loss his brother,bonnie and everything. I am it only one . That is also for stefan
  • Serial Killers and the women who love/cover for them.

    Hypothetical question:

    Whichever of the Salvatore bothers Elena is salivating for has just completed the ritual to wake up Acathla from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Elena has the sword necessary to end the ritual by killing her love, and he is completely open to attack, gloating over how she will not be able to kill him. Will she:

    A) Run him through, saving the world at the cost of killing the man she loved.

    B) Kiss him as the world gets flushed into hell, dooming humanity to extinction.

    I think we all know Elena will choose option 'B'.
  • Only watching because of Klaus + Caroline

    Elena sucked ever since this show started. I only watched again when I heard Klaus and Caroline's love was brewing and that it was worth watching the show. I even change the channel when Dobrevs face comes on and check back periodically to see if klaroline's on.
  • This crap needs to be booted off TV!

    This has to be one of the saddest TV shows on at the moment. How Vampire Diaries has made it past Season One is beyond my knowledge.
  • Gonna stop watching

    The show has gone to hell!!!
  • All filler, no killer

    How does anyone actually consider this a great show? Aside from girls fantasizing, I can't see any worth to it.. it's super slow, the vampires are obsessed with a girl for no real reason (once again), there's barely any story to it.. I feel like I'm reading a book, but each episode is just a couple pages of the book. Super long description of some minute occurrence such as being stuck in a cave or [insert scenario here] where one of the vampire brothers shows up to save the girl and scare off another vampire, and then that's it. It's basically a soap opera with vampires thrown in the mix. Come on guys...
  • worst show ever.


    writer kevin williamson (dawsons creek) is doing everything he can to destroy everything i love about vampires into a "insert teen drama here" cliche of a show.

    breaking so many vampire doctrines that dracula is turning in his grave.

    the dialogue is at best...sadly funny.

    favourite moment is actually in the pilot.

    when stefan turns to elena and says... "i was never good at ... chit chat" seriously dude...never would have guessed that after a century of bloodsucking...thats the best you can come up with.

    at least everybody looks beautiful. project run away with teeth

  • Elena and her brother loses their parents. Life sucks. Suddenly a mysterious boy shows up at their school. A vampire. A couple of people die, one gets hurt. Another vampire shows up. A little fighting. And bla bla bla... Deja vu, anyone???

    With series like True Blood and movies like Twilight out there, the Vampire Daries just doesn't cut it. It's quite boring and gives a bad taste of deja vu. I can't believe i wasted over 40 min of my life watching this crap. But if I were to mention something good about the series it would have to be that Elenas brother is kinda cute and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is a little hot, but FYI, Stefan (Paul Wesley) is not. He is a mamas boy version of Angel (David Boreanaz). Sadly I think there's a lot of teenaged girls who will love him and this series... But in my opinion this is one of the worst vampire series ever...
  • Dire.

    How luck are the producers? They seem to have been able to cast three wooden actors in the lead roles. Ian Somerhalder as the smug and plastic-faced evil brother, Nina Dobrev as a passable Bambi, and Paul Wesley doing a pretty good impersonation of a mute with defined abs and less well defined personality.

    As if that wasn't bad enough, the same formulaic plot in every episode is just tedious; evil brother spreads rumour, Bambi told by friend of rumour, cue pouting and the inevitable falling out, followed by the hackneyed stalwart of other angst-ridden dramas - the make-up/make-out session. Imagine my surprise when next week the same thing happens all over again.
  • 1 girl, 2 vamps this story is getting old already

    Not much to review, same tween vampire trend that all the little girls are eating up. I see no real interest in this and I hope it doesn't make it past a first season. Buffy and Angel were the only CW young adult Vampire shows I'd watch. This was so dull, no original concept, storyline, characters... I can at least enjoy True Blood but it's not a watered down CW show. I didn't even enjoy Twilight so I guess I'm just not into this tween crap. Can this crap and bring back Terminator: TSCC. If you're a youngin and have never seen Buffy go rent or buy some DVD's and watch that instead of this crap.
  • Girl meets guy, who so happens to be a vampire. Guy fell in love with girl. Guy's brother come into the picture. Blah blah blah.

    Another chick vampire flick?? Isn't Twilight enough? Why are they cancelling all the good vampire series such as Moonlight and Angel? We need more in-depth storylines, not some cheap, cliched plots like this one! Although the cast is well chosen, the plot is seriously over-used. We can use some coffee to actually stay awake throughout the entire episode. The idea that the main vampire character is all "sparkling" with goodness and always trying to help the "damsel in distress" female protagonist is getting way boring. I doubt that I will give this series another thought. 4.6 million viewers, seriously? Supernatural deserves the love, not this chick flick.
  • One of the worst.

    What can you say. Platsic Barbie looking girls that can't act, just smile and try look cute. Toooooo much makeup and somtimes the girls look old. What are they 15 or 30? Hmm.

    And the vampire guy look old and what on earth did he wear?

    I know it's not about the looks and what cloths they have, but I can't help to not like it at all.

    And how they act in this show is horrible. It looks like one of my first movies I did when I was 12. And the show feels like a bad copy of Twilight.

    I'm not going to follow this show and I'm sure it will be a short one. Hell pull the plug now and use the time and money on something better!

    Score: 1 of 5
  • Worst piece of teen-vampire dung I have ever scene.

    Predictably lame. I hate this show with every fiber of my being. Take every schlocky cliche you can imagine about teen angst films and every schlocky cliche you can imagine about crappy vampire movies and put them together and you will have the steaming pile of crud that you could ever find in the way of a cruddy tv show. Seriously though, this is by far one of the lamest shows i think i have ever seen. I for one would rather carve my eyeballs out of my own head than to watch one more episode of this drivel. Corporate cookie-cutter crapavision.
  • Another vampire story?

    I don't get the whole Vampire-Human Relationship. The whole vampire thing is a MYTH and NOT real. I hated Twilight and thought Stephenie Meyer is an awful author and it doesn't change the fact that this show is any better. I don't get why do people waste their time watching some mythical creature exploring the mortal world, oh wait, I know why, they're all a bunch of fan girls probably crushing over the vampire. Pathetic. There are tons of shows that is just as good and is actually not far from reality and is just as entertaining and actually MAKES SENSE rather than this show.
  • The writers are pissing off the fans

    Anyone who went on tumblr, or or youtube would easily see that what the writers are doing with the characters is infuriating the fans. The fans are fed up with elena whining about everything and beign the center of the universe. the writers justify her whining by sayign she has been through so much. But in reality she hasnt been through as much as some of her friends. Caroline has been kidnapped 5 times, tortured 4 times, has nearly died twice from hybrid bites, was raped and abused by damon (and yes it was rape because he compelled away her will to fight back or deny him, she was not a consensual or willing elena could care actually throws it in carolines face because everything revolves around her.

    Then you take into account that the writers arent being logical at all when it comes to the other characters. If Klaus gains camille as a love interest in the spin off, fans are going to be infuriated. Why would a 1000 year old vampire who has never had a relationship with a woman besides sex and draining suddenly start a relationship with a human? especially since we all know that for the first time in over 1000 years he has fallen in love with caroline.

    Bonnies story line has gone down the toilet as well.


    It's more of a teenage love story than a vampire story, Mystic Falls is a natural magnet of supernatural disaster and none of the main characters dies (or stays dead). We have long before accepted that. Why can't they? Enough already with the ever whining, hypocritically moral, I-cannot-decide-who-or-what-I-want, poor Elena who has suffered so many great losses. Honestly, exept for her foster parents and an aunt, what has Elena lost? Both her boyfriends - who by the way are brothers and no one seems to care while everybody accused Katherine for the same reason - keep dying and then coming back, her brother came back, even her former/current teacher-father figure came back from the dead and I'm pretty sure her best friend is about to escape her fate too, soon. And Elena was a doppleganger and now she's a vampire. I mean, most of us are neither and have sustained heavier losses. And, moral? Elena? Please... Whoever theatens her little gang is a monster and must be put down for the greater good, but if any of her friends, or herself, snaps out and accidentally kills a town, she is sad for half an episode and it's ok, lets go to the grill, joy! That has nothing to do with the beautiful actress playing Elena, of course. She was great as Katherine. the character just sucks!

    Now, I won't even begin with Caroline. She is one of the most annoying, stupid characters in the history of tv shows. Ever! Klaus should have been high on bad blood or vervain the whole time while in Mystic Falls. Seriously, mate, you deserve way better!

    Stefan is a vampire in denial for more than 150 years. You are a vampire, Stefan! Vampires kill people. It's what they do for a living, literally. Get over with it or suicide, already!

    Damon is the only character that makes sincere efforts to keep up with his identity as a vampire in a decent way, and, of course, he is the bad guy! He is in love, now, and he tries to impress the "Virgin Bloody Mary" he fell for, we understand that, but I believe in Damon. He will return to his ways one day!

    Does anyone else wonder why they keep putting up with the arrogant nobody with the Italian name and the British accent? Why does't anyone just kill Enzo, already? They have killed far less meddling, annoying characters! Why??

    Overall, the show was decent for as long as there were main characters who were still human (Matt, the overhelpful fang-hug and Jeremy, the depressed ex-hunter do not count) and the Originals were in it. Now, it's all about whining vampires and an indifferent love story. Not for me anymore. Sorry...
