A couple older vampires would be good. I don't see any on the show. I am only on season 2. Hopefully there will be a couple as the show goes on. Young and hot is nice. In the real world old and plain exist too. Maybe a couple of plain old vampires to stir things up. Maybe you could put in a couple of warlocks too.
Anyone else find this "interview style" storytelling annoying? The background might as well just be out-of-focus cardboard cut-outs, with ambient sound, since almost the whole thing is shot like each character is being interviewed, and no one else is really there. No interaction with them, no nothing.
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.
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.
THE ONLY REASON I CONTINUE TO HANG AROUND THE SHOW AT THIS POINT IS TO SEE IF ANY KLAROLINE COMES OF IT
So I was near the ending of season 2, and I kind of thought it was starting to get stupid. Like how stefan can catch shooting wood stakes so easily, yet Pearl couldn't. Forget the shooting, Elijah was suppose to be an original yet he couldn't even dodge a running vampire at 1/10th of his age? I thought bringing an original was a good twist but its pretty stupid showing how they killed him 3x, 2x in 1 episode. I liked the show until they started showing someone from being godly and unkillable to slower reflex then a human.
Also one thing, how can Stefan catch a football coming at his head from behind him, without it touching him, while Elijah cant dodge something in-front of him?
i mean l really love this show but im so sick of the cure and elena and everything , this season is less than i expected .. im seriously watching it only for klaroline because the rest is boring and they are killing all the great characters like alaric , kol , jeremy and now klaus has a new show and he might not be on tvd as much .. and i hate the fact that we have to wait for some ep. more than 2 weeks or something like that .. don't get me wrong i still love the show but im disappointed by this season .. im sorry :(
Show is dragging..18 episodes and we are yet to know what the season is all about. Catherine suddenly showing up with elija. the true face of silas not seen since is awakening. this surely has to be the final season
That is all you need to assist you with watching this show. Damon is a great character and Ian Somerhalder does a great job of playing him. Damon and Stefan's chemistry is amazing, and that is a testament to Paul Wesley's acting too. Great cast, and a great show. Nothing but a 10!
Love, love, love this show. It has everything that a good show needs. Sexy characters, romance, danger, and supernatural twists and turns that are gut-wrenching, beautiful, sad, and mind blowing all at once. I've read every book by . Smith including the Vampire Diaries and loved them all as well. I like it when a book and show/movie have a completely different outlook and direction. It is fun to see how different people change the arc of a central idea and what kind of ending there turns out to be. I also cannot stand it when people are Team Delana (Meaning Damon or Elena) or Team Stephana (or whatever Stephan and Elena are called), and grip, bitch, and moan anytime Elena shows her feelings for the opposite brother. Helloooo people, the love triangle is at the absolute center of the entire show, so get over it. I love the tension that it creates between all of the characters and how one girl's choice effects everyone around her. Julie Plec Kevin Williamson and all of the other genius, brilliant writers who work on this show, keep doing what your doing. Your ability to constantly send me on an emotional roller-coaster ride with every new episode and keep all of the twists and turns fresh and mind blowing make this show what it
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.
