Trivia

The crow that is seen in the pilot is in reference to Damon, who in the books had the power to transform into a crow. The producers said they didn't run with that because they didn't want to give him too many powers too quickly and leave no room for growth. See more »

so i read your comment about how Vampire Diaries ripped off Twilight i think you should do a bit of research before you say anyone would rip off that piece of crap by Stephenie Meyer. sorry to burst your bubble but Stephenie Meyer is the one who rips off everyone trying to be someone. Vampire Diaries was published in Septemeber of 1991 where as Twilight was published in 2005. though the show may be similar to the crap people call a movie, Twilight, the story and its concept came way before Stephenie dreamt that ridiculous scene which caused dumb little girls to go crazy. and with the True Blood series originally known as, The Southern Vampire Mysteries the first one was published in 2001, 4 years before Twilight. I just finished watching the first episode and i have to admit it does feel like the same torture i went through when watching the Twilight movie, at least the actors can act, which is saying a lot because the main people in Twilight cant. so you're wrong. :) research before you say others are rip offs. just saying.
