Storyline

The vampire brothers Damon and Stefan Salvatore, eternal adolescents, having been leading "normal" lives, hiding their bloodthirsty condition, for centuries, moving on before their non-aging is noticed. They are back in the Virginia town where they became vampires. Stefan is noble, denying himself blood to avoid killing, and tries to control his evil brother Damon, who promised to Stefan an eternity of misery. Stefan falls in love with schoolgirl Elena, who has an uncanny resemblance to the Salvatore brothers old love, Katherine; and whose best friend Bonnie is a witch. Written by KGF Vissers

The illicit child of Twighlight and 90210.

The worst pile of drivel I've ever watched.

I love vampire stories, old style like Drac & Nosferatu, new style like Blade and Underworld, comedy vampires like Johnny Depp in Dark Shadows and Leslie Nielsen in whatever the heck that film was called but I was totally thrown by shopping vampires. My other half is a massive fan of the show and as such I've watched most of them. I don't know where to start on how bad this show really is. If it was called 'Vampires 90210' it might have made sense since no-one has actually written in a diary for about 3 seasons now.

OK, the cast - I've no idea who cast the Salvatore brothers but I'm under the impression they've never actually had a scary moment in their entire life. I'd be more afraid of my 8 year old daughter than that pair.

Having been forced through the various guises of Nina Dobrev I've a note for non vampire diaries watchers. If her hair has changed, she's supposed to be somebody else.

Tyler, (according to my other half) - He's rubbish but he's fit.

Sponsorship - Oh you've got a smart-phone that your sponsors gave you. That's nice, could you just leave it on screen and get out of the way. You might as well since it is the star of the scene normally.

Also, what's the deal with killing just about every character in the show just to bring them back in the next episode? I'm guessing the 'deal' is a lack of imagination in the script. At a script meeting - "Any ideas yet? Nope. Let's just kill someone. What about their contracts? It's OK, they'll be back next week!"

Do they not get tax breaks for filming outside the U.S? All these creatures from all over history and they all live in the U.S? Don't forget the Roma gypsies from... can you guess? That's right Romania, U.S.A.!
