    Good series
  • The real reason why TVD and The Originals suck now.

    3.0
    I began watching The Vampire Diaries when I was 11 years old. I religiously watched tvd. Me and my friends were all obsessed with that show, all we would do is talk about how amazing tvd was.. I was so obsessed with tvd that if I missed the first five minutes of the show, I would wait until the next day just so I could watch the episode in one sitting. It was actually one of the best shows I have every watched until it just started to suck

    Man. first started diskliking it when Damon and Elena started having a relationship. I HATED it. I thought it was a horrible plot idea. It took me a very, very, long time to accept their relationship. It was only after I realized Stefan deserved better than someone like Elena (the girl who went after his brother when he was going through a difficult time) I had really shipped Stelena with all my heart and to this day I wish Delena had never happened. Sigh tvd would've probably had way more ratings than it does now. Anyway after a while I accepted and even began to ship Delena. But another reason why I looooooved tvd so much was because of THE ORIGINALS. I feel as if the originals were more than just some characters in tvd they seemed to come off as main characters. And I loved them. But more than anything I believe everyone loved klaus but loved him even more when he was with caroline. Klaroline was one of the biggest ships I worshipped. I strongly believed they would be together but nope My favorite seasons of TVD was season 2&3, which were the seasons where klaroline was happening plus Stefan was with Elena. I started to dislike tvd season 4. And then it just kept getting worse. Every week I would tell myself hmm okay maybe next week is gonna be better&nope it still sucked I remember before in tvd there were so many things happening at the same time! It was never just one problem, it was many. And that made tvd a wonderful, thrilling show! Ever since season 4 I kept telling myself it would get better but finally during the mid season of season 6 I had gave up all hope on the vampire diaries and I quit it. It was very hard but ehh tvd was shit then and is now . I used to watch the originals as well and I thought it was pretty interesting. But reason why I quit the originals was because how they really just quit klaroline. Klaroline was a very huge ship and I believe a lotttttttttt of people would've kept watching tvd and the originals if they stayed together. Episode where i stopped watching the originals was when that psychiatrist girl I forgot her name got killed and klaus turned her into a vampire and they're together now. i figured she would end up being a vampire. I'm pretty sure fans wouldn't have been so angry with the originals and tvd if they showed klaus grieving over the fact that him and Caroline are no more. It was such a terrible idea how they just jumped right into the originals and klaus didn't even seem to miss Caroline. Same goes for Caroline, she seemed to forget klaus quite fast. This upsetted many of us. Klaroline was so huge but within a matter of one seasons they killed them! Also klaus kissed the psychiatrist which basically made me come to my conclusion that tvd and the originals, the shows which I loved suck ass. I wouldn't recommend this show to no one unless they just want to watch two seasons which is 2&3of tvd. But overall i believe the actors playing the roles were amazing I loved them! Nina , Ian , Paul, Joseph and the many more were just wonderful and I really appreciate the work they put into tvd and the originals.
  • Pretty little liars lovers

    Ok honestly this is the best show I've ever watched ever since the first episode I've just loved it the way they portray love is just absolutely perfect it's also really interesting I wish it wasn't ending at season 8 because it's so good the only thing I personally don't like is Delena Damon and Elena just don't work I feel like Elena and Stephen were the best couple ever shown on tv I also feel like if they spiced up season 8 with the reunion of stelena the show might have a chance to come back or even a good ending even sterilize would be really good
  • Praying for a good Season 8

    4.0
    I loved the first four seasons of the vampire diaries and I will watch as many seasons as they air because the characters are somehow part of my family. However, this season was so confusing... I will have to watch it again to understand it (especially the second half)

    I think there is one major problem. Now, the characters are completely unrooted. Their relatives are dead, Mystic Falls is desert and they hate each other. I think it is very difficult to handle a plot like that. Besides, a good villain with a good motivation is needed urgently.

    Elena stopped having chemistry with Damon last season, when Alaric compelled her to forgot her memories. In my opinion, that relationship never made a full recovery. I don't like Bonenzo neither Steroline. Bonnie has always been strong, but now she doesn't even seem human anymore. Finally, Damon has been a saint for a few seasons; it doesn't makes sense anymore that Stephan blames him for everything he doesn't like is his life.

    Lily's arc was good, although Damon felt sorry too soon (when he was inside the stone).
  • I LOVE THIS SHOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    10
    I WATCH THIS SHOW EVERYDAY I LOVE IT TO MUCH and I LOVE JEREMY GILBERT AND ALL THE OTHER CHARACTERS !!!!!!!!!!

  • What I now think of the vampire diaries

    3.5
    Ok so The Vampire Diaries is a great show in all but season 7 just kills the magic .Like seriously Mystic Falls Damon [Not dead meaning he's not alive dead meaning He's gone],No good romance, No life threatening situations. The show just lost its life .all the show is now is boring.
  • Julie Plec Wake up! You are ruining The Vampire Diaries!

    2.0
    I used to love TVD. I waited each week for Thursday so that I could DVR it. Every week, I waited anxiously to start watching it halfway through (so I could skip commercials) and get my Damon fix! ;) However, this season has been such a let down, not even Ian can fix it. It has been sloppy and confusing. Too much time and energy wasted on Julian, Lily and the heretics that no one really cared about anyways. The Damon bashing has reached an all-time high, and that is despite the many sacrifices he has made for everyone, none of which anyone seems to notice, nor remember--writers and characters alike! I can see why the ratings for this show have plummeted, and it really has nothing to do with Nina Dobrev leaving the show. It has more to do with the confusing, and yet still boringly predictable if all else fails blame Damon because that has always worked in the past! My God! Can't the writers find a new dog and pony show to give the viewers?! Damon bashing was fine in the first four season--he deserved it! However, in the last few seasons he has made some serious changes. He makes the tough choices that no one wants to make for the people he loves, and yet, he never--and I mean NEVER gets any credit. I think the writers just kick the Damon character around so much because of how popular Ian is and they know they can get away with it. Well, not anymore. I am done! It was bad enough the way they kept flashing forward in such a ridiculous way that never let the audience know just what the heck was happening, but then we were forced to watch the Bonnie/Enzo relationship just appear in one episode--just a week or so before that she was chopping off his hand!! Real sloppy and completely unbelievable, not to mention unwatchable, I fast forwarded through every one of the B/E scenes! And then there was the scenes that made me realize this show no loner cares about the relationships between the characters. I cannot help but believe the writers simply want to continue to pigeon hole each character into their tiny little frame because they keep writing the same old plot lines with just a different villain in the mix! It is boring and predictable--find something new and exciting will you? How about actually allowing the other characters to acknowledge the growth Damon has had, huh? Now that would be a real crazy thing, hmm? I swear, I thought the Damon bashing was bad earlier in the series, but this season was like all six seasons before it--X's 10! And when I was forced to watch every single character in the show say what a piece of crap Damon is--literally in one episode, I think every character in the episode said how bad Damon was and how everything would be better without him! And yet, when he goes to do just that--(because yes, those insightful writers have no other tricks up their sleeves!) Stefan, Ric and then Bonnie all turn their backs on him and in some form or another tell him they are done with him!



    I have taken the Damon abuse for a long-long time because Ian was so you have given him nothing to work with this season. This is nothing more than a boring plot with the same old soccer ball (Damon) to kick around when you run out of interesting things to write about! Snooozzee! This is why TVD are about to be cancelled! Wake the heck up, Julie Plec, you've finally gone too far! Give us something new andf exciting--please, before you lose the last of the loyal fans you still have!!!!!!!!!!
  • No longer a great show

    1.5
    I was obsessed with vampire diaries a few years back. Season 2-4 were spectacular. But something went wrong. I don't think it matters who you ship or where particular storylines went wrong. The problem is in the breakdown of all the relationships these past few seasons. Friendships, romantic entanglements, family ties have all been demolished in ways that are hard to imagine while watching the earlier seasons. Season 7 is some of the absolute worst television I've ever watched. Shows like this that deal with supernatural elements always do well because of a deeply loving and loyal relationship of the core characters. They aren't all related by blood but they would die and kill for one another. Yet season 7 of vampire diaries has destroyed all of that. Elenas gone and no one has even bothered to try figuring out a way to break that spell (even though they became pretty chummy with the heretics). Matt hates all vampires and sets it up for Stefan to be killed despite these characters deep history or even matts history with Caroline and Elena. Jeremy drops out of sight without an explanation for why he didn't come back for Bonnie once she was no longer dead when he spent his last season being a drugged drunk mourning her death. Alaric hates Damon, Enzo and Damon haven't barely spoken since Enzo's initial appearance. Caroline and Stefan were dating and then suddenly they weren't. We have wasted a season on heretics that no one cares about. Stefan hates Damon. Vonnie hates Damon. No one cares about eachother anymore and it's crap. Why watch? The rich history between the characters has all been erased and there's just nothing left. Nothing.
  • AN AWESOME SHOW

    10
    Where do I start, an amazing show it is, the show, shows us true passionate love not T-V love .Every single character holds some spiritual aspect to them. Every character grasps on to love. I could not describe how amazing the show is with all the poets in the world! When I first started watching this show I was a bit scared of the thought of vampires. I was scared of the main character falling in love with A vampire, a very sweet generous vampire THAT HAD WARM LOVE IN ITS VEINS.. IF you were thinking of watching The Vampire diaries do not hesitate on watching it. WATCH IT. I fell in love with the show from day 1 . Vampire Diaries should never

    end it should keep on going.

    I end it hear saying what I realized in the show was never let go your metaphors
  • Future episodes

    So im an ultimate fan of the vampire diaries and i watched every episode and kept up with every person. So im really hoping that bonnies cousin that was in one of the earlier seasons because she said that she would be back.. hopefully im not the only one that remembers that.
  • How i got my ex back

I promise to share this testimony all over the world once my boyfriend return back to me, and today with all due respect i want to thank Lord Alika for bringing joy and happiness to my relationship and my family. I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is real and genuine. I never believed in any of these things until i loosed my boyfriend, I required help until i found a grate spell caster, And he cast a love spell for me, and he assured me that I will get my boyfriend back in two days after the spell has been cast. two days later, my phone rang, and so shockingly, it was my boyfriend who has not called me for past 6 months now, and made an apology for the heart break, and told me that he is ready to be my back bone till the rest of his life with me. Lord Alika released him up to know how much i loved and wanted him. And opened his eyes to picture how much we have share together. As I'm writing this testimony right now I'm the most happiest girl on earth and me and my boyfriend is living a happy life and our love is now stronger than how it were even before our break up. So that's why I promised to share my testimony all over the thanks goes to Lord Alika for the excessive work that he has done for me.

  • LOVE IT

    10
    When I got Netflix I started watching some shows I liked and I came across the Vampire Diaries. I was for sure that it was stupid but i watched it anyways.... Just one episode and I HAD to watch more. So I found myself watching it everyday for 3 weeks watching all 6 seasons. I sure hope it doesn't get cancelled!!!! Its very aggrevating when you watch 7 seasons and the show cancels at a good part. Then nobody will ever know what happens next. If you're going to cancel it please make the last episode make sense you know like a happily ever after instead of cutting it off in the middle of a story
  • More Than Original Vampires

    10
    The Vampire Diaries has been a fan favorite since its first airing seven years ago; creative, darkly sensual, and delightfully twisted, the deep characterization, captivating performances, and engaging backgrounds and storylines never fail to keep me wildly anticipating the next episode. It's more than a story - it's a universe and a legend all its own.



    First glancing at the title in 2009, I anticipated another cheesy romantic drama about a girl stuck between two guys, with the repetitive and unoriginal vampire universe as a background.



    Yeah, that's not what I got. The Vampire Diaries is entirely original; a once-hated of all things vampire related, I love the portrayal of it by this show, and find myself comparing everything else to it and finding nothing else remotely on par with it. Every character is enthralling, the plot thrilling and full of fantastic twists and turns. I've never been bored with it; not with a single episode, and I've been moved to tears more times than I can count by the beautiful performances of these actors. Exciting, original, and deeply moving, The Vampire Diaries will always be the show to watch.
  • Long time fan, now only disappointed

    1.0
    Last season I would've rated this show as a highly rated and well done show. However, the attempt to restart Damon as the lost and destructive brother after burning Elena in her slumber.... I finally understand now that the show has lost its way. If Damon truly loves Elena, he would stop at nothing until he could find a way to get her back. His personal hell would've been not being able to reach her despite how close she may be. This show only did so well with this strong romantic couple, with Elena seeing through the facade that Damon projects and the pain he was really in. This show should have furthered that plotline. But really it looks like he is losing himself.... that he, like an idiot set fire to a coffin through a hallucination but knew that was Elena's coffin. I'm sorry but even this turn of events has me turning away from the show. I was looking for true character development and acting, but unfortunately you make Damon a lost boy craving his mother and seeking destruction and giving up on gaining his love back when he turns to fighting. I'm sorry but I've had enough. I can no longer watch this show, the writing has turned to the worst and I no longer am intrigued or captured by it. I have watched the Originals also, but have also lost the interest in it as well. Don't even get me started on how all the characters just seem to be there with odd circumstances, but development is not really there. Only farfetched ideas that the writers put in to somehow explain through flashbacks. I'm sorry but even your fans have a limit to the ridiculousness of it all. I will no longer be watching this show again. I only created an account to write this review to express my severe disappointment with the show now. I hope the writers and directors can take these comments as constructive criticism and improve upon their work.

  • make a little show

    10
    I also agree that the series has become rather boring lately. But what I think will make it more fun and keep the interest for a little while at least, is to bring in an Original for a short period of time a series or two. Everybody like that show better, so why the hell not? Pitch in one of the brothers, Klaus or Elijah, just to show the vampires of Mystic Falls who's the baddest! And see that cocky son of a b*** Julian s*** his pants. And witness some display of power no matter from whom it will be whether Klaus or Elijah. I hope you like my idea guys. :)

  • What

    3.0
    I am in total agreement with "Cautiousnj" about what is happening to this show. I've been watching this show since the inception and have been a avid fan for all those years. Until this year and the last part of last year.

    This crap of going back and forth between the here-and-now to the future and back is just that.... crap! It makes absolutely NO sense to do that and only confuses things.

    Speaking of confusing things.. what the H___L is up with the writers??? Damon's and Stefan's going in and out of reality. Is it real or is it..... whatever?? I know they're trying to pique the interest and imagination of the viewers but, IMHO, they're only confusing the viewers. So. Is Damon back to reality or not? Is Stefan really seeing Damon or not? Did Damon really burn Elena's body or not?

    I must seriously ask the age-old question: WTF???????

    This is NOT making the show more interesting. It is making the show seriously un-watchable. Please... make some sense and get a more interesting storyline! I don't want to abandon the show, but certainly will if this keeps up.

    I WAS a huge vampire diary fan. But it seem as though the writers are putting all their efforts into the Originals. I now prefer to watch the Originals first and as I watch the VD show I am bored to death. What has happened to the writers imagination. Can't stand the story line especially how it is being filmed with this back and forth in reality and not reality. Please just end the show or make a new storyline from scratch. The characters are boring. It seems Stefan and Damien are the only stars and even they are beyond my interest. What happened? Ugh

    TBFH, I think they are dragging the show too f-ing much especially cuz they've been having a break for over a month. ALSO, I get that Nina left the show, but then they should somehow bring her in as a guest star and like u know actually make this something that is worth watching.
  • The vampire dairies

    10
    I like the vampire dairies my favorite couple is damon and elena. I like the 7th season and I can't wait to see who the person. Is that's trying to kill them I some what saw the face but you can't really tell to me it looked like elena but she's supposed to be asleep until bonnie dies. Where is little gilbert (Jeremy) we have not seen him not one time yet unless he is some were eles. I can't belive three years later bonnie and Enzo got together I didn't see that one coming. The tv show isn't bouncing around it tell you what happend before the three years came so it's like the past getting to the future. I can't belive damon and stefan is in the rock I was so mad when I saw that I wanted to just punch someone. I love the vampire dairies it's one of my second favorite shows sorry but the first is arrow. It is a really good show I can't wait until the next one. And to the cast and crew you guys did a really nice job on this TV show I hope it goes on as long as it can. Love you guys

  • Why?

    1.0
    First six seasons, great! Nina leaving? Not great, salvator brothers mother coming into the show, not great. I hate the seventh season and all of the new characters, they ruined the show and my love for it. I would watch the show on Netflix whenever I got the chance, then when I got a glimps of season 7, I stopped! It was terrible, it's not even vampire diaries anymore. Nina leaving the show was the worst thing ever and I do not believe this show will last much longer.
  • The Vampire Diaries

    8.5
    At first, I got real interested in that show because of former 'Degrassi' actress Nina Debrov, but then I lost it. Now a few years later (which is now), I finally got my enthusiasm for this show back. My favorite characters on the show are the Salvatore brothers. Like: Buffy, Dawson, Twilight & Felicity, there is always love triangle. But that's okay because I really love Love Triangles. To me, this show is popular for two reasons actually: 1) Former 'Degrassi' actress Nina Debrov and 2) Kevin Williamson, who's the creator of *Dawson's Creek*, but there are other reasons beside that too. Anyways, I really like this show, especially Damon & Stefan. Best characters on the show.
  • This Show Right Here!

    I started to watch this show on and off when it first came out. The first couple of episodes were a bore and reminded me of the twilight craze, so I decided not to watch the show. But now I appreciate them after going back to the beginning in a binge fest. I was over a buddies house started back when the show first started and he had on the last episode of season 1. We were pretty high so the show was really entertaining. After the season finale was over I wanted more. Thats when he asked if I wanted to watch the first few recordings of season 2 and catch up with him. After they were over, I was hooked to this show. This show is The Best vampire show imo. The Originals has potential of course to be better but Vpd right now is mind blowing. The show has changed so much from the first 6 seasons. But definitely in a good way. Since the focus on the main character shifts from Elena to everyone else, The show is everywhere at this point, but I like seeing the show this way. The time skips are are so great that they set the tide for the season. I really wanna know all that happens in between "then and now". Heretics are the best edition so far and so are all the loopholes they exploit to magic. Their introduction in a way felt like the revelation of Klaus' hybrid status. I hope this show makes it to 10 seasons or more.
  • I Can't Even Watch

    3.0
    I've watched seasons 1 through 6 on many occasions. Never disappointed and always fully in tune with the plot line. This is the one show I can just turn on while I'm doing homework and never be disappointed. The Damon and Elena love always captivated me, and I was always willing to watch that unfold. I loved all the characters and how they all fit together. I loved seeing each relationship unfold.

    I don't mind that Elena is "asleep" now or that she is no longer on the show. (I wish great things for Nina!)

    However, the current plot line is fuzzy and it bounces all over the place. And I don't like Lily one bit. The fact that she treats her boys the way she does, I find despicable. There is no love here. There is no clear indication of anything good coming. Alaric's love interest came back, but he has changed. Enzo and maybe a little Caroline.. could be a real game changer, but they are having him go a way that just isn't working. I don't see this going anywhere pleasant. Therefore, I can't even watch my favorite show anymore. The headlining actors should quit while they are ahead. Actually, now they are behind. But, I feel it might get worse. I'll watch another episode to see if my mind changes. But I'm afraid I will be too disappointed.

    Perfection
  • How Can a Mother Say Such Hurtful Hateful Things!

    3.0
    I personally am VERY disappointed in this season so far. I agree that loosing Elena is not as hard on the show as I expected, But ONLY because it feels like a completely new show! This season is so different than any other season. In my opinion the show has become less exciting and more daunting. This new season has become somewhat painful for me to watch... I can not see how I can be the only one that feels this way but one of my biggest issues is Lily. As one of many devout viewer of the show, from the very first episode till now... I have grown to love the characters of both Stephan & Damon. We have seen Damon go from a scary, dangerous, moody, irresponsible, selfish, mean vampire/brother to a lost, lonely, broken hearted (first over Katherine, then Elena) love struck, which made him kind (in his own way) selfless, hero in many ways including of willing to die for to a fault caring absolutely lovable immortal brother/boyfriend. & Stephan always the responsible heroic caring forgiving devoted... exc exc exc Lovable immortal Brother/ Boyfriend/ Friend. So knowing how much these 2 young (immortal) men can feel deeply in their hearts, how they both can love selflessly, to be able to love so deeply they not only make sacrifices for the person they love but are wiling to die for have seen the pain they can feel because they have a heart... So to bring their mother the first woman both of them ever loved deeply back into their lives only to hurt them for no reason, but because she decided she had to stop loving them???? Yet her motherly need to love was strong enough she made herself new children???? This season so far has been very hard to watch. Everything heartwarming about the show is gone. There are hints that Lily might still love her sons but just wont admit it... I ask the writers how can you make a mother so cold cruel, with words she can not take back and then all of a sudden make make something happen that is suppose to mean her painful words were not true & it will make everything alright??? The boys should trust her? Especially with their hearts??? It better be good! We have lost half the characters which helped bring the show to life..... Even the characters left seem to have changed. Enso is one of mamas boys willing to hurt the people he "actually" got to know over a woman who he only just met & turned him in one day. Alaric is becoming more of a threat, selfish, and willing to lie. Stephan seems to be falling for (LETS FACE IT) control freak Caroline who fit into past episodes as the event planner /organizer and even her pushy ways were acceptable to help friend get out of their funk/depression ad live life. But I cant imagine sweet tempered easy going low toned Stephan being anything but a floor mat for hot tempered high maintenance Caroline.... who would REALLY have to cause Stephan's character to change if he is going to survive her without loosing his mind.... (maybe that is how he will change) Bonnie and Damon haven't changed too much "except" they both seem to have given up the love of their life without going over the deep end.... Not even a good night of drinking away the sorrows.... which just doesn't make much sense considering they were both willing to give their own lives to save their beloved at one well I said a huge piece. I will leave it with I feel the show has lost its heart & could you bring back their mother just to make her hate her own sons for no good reason! I cant get past that.
