We have been watching this series from the very beginning and have long since passed the first season (but I desperately wanted to review to pass on the Blu-ray to a friend who is missing out not seeing the show, and most importantly then she and I can have the Stefan OR Damon conversations!).
I must admit we were slightly unsure to begin with and took a few episodes to settle into the show. We thought it looked slightly teeny and had some reservations but come episode three onwards, we started to get more and more suckered in with the plot and the characters. In the beginning I did not get the appeal of one of the lead characters, he seemed to have a very pronounced chin, but now I can see his true potential!!! But Damon is mine so do not get any other idea’s followers… haha!
We are now well and truly hooked, if you have somehow missed Vampire Diaries - did your TV blow up or you fell in a ditch? Seriously where have you been? it is worth giving it a chance and seeing what you think. Don’t dismiss it straight away it has continually improved, the plot is gripping and Vampires are very in at the moment. It is also not quite as gruesome as some of the other Vampire shows, good for the faint hearted like me! There is plenty of romance and an undercurrent theme of dark, brooding jealously. All I can say is Elena is a very lucky girl! Even with all the drama, she gets to hang out with two hotties… swoons!
Bonnie is sometimes a bit lame in her witchery attempts; she spends most of the show in a state of lethargy because her magic powers drain her (get a grip, have you tried running around after two young children, drink some red bull or something!). Caroline is a great character and one hubbie seems quite partial too!!! I guess I am not in a position to complain given my blood lust for the two leads…
Here is hubbie doing his best impression (can I have a rain check on any blood sucking please!):
