You gotta love it.
19 July 2018 | by omarkhmuhammadSee all my reviews

I honestly do not know why am I watching this show. Whether it's because it's interesting, or I loved the characters since the first time I saw them. But I keep on watching it even though a lot of things bug me about it. I mean, why does everyone storm in everywhere and scare the human characters? Why can't they enter just like everyone else does? But then again, you forget all about that when you see Stefan and Elena smiling to each other without people noticing and hear Damon giving someone a hard time because they simply suck.
