The acting isn't the greatest, but I have definitely seen much worse. Even the cheesier elements see: fog don't take themselves too seriously. The lesser episodes are still fantastic, and the truly great ones are rich with everything an episode of television could possibly desire. Because you easily see her bright intelligence and innocence on her face. After watching episode 4 i got all excited and started to flap my hands wishing the next episode will come out already.
Apparently one cannot copyright an idea, only product. Believe me at the end of every episode, maybe even in between commercials, you begin to speculate what the end possibilities could be. Perhaps that is the difference in these stories; the Vampire Diaries lack the certain amount of constipation. This is the age old vampire story: dark brooding vampire meets young human girl. I bet the producers are probably thinking up their next masterpiece.
It's been done before about a thousand times, right? If you like true blood, twilight and loved buffy then you should all watch this show mostly so that i can see the second episode!! The only flaw may be the characters. Elena has a sister in the book called Margaret, not a brother who is a drug addict. Vampire Diaries, based off a series written 15 years before Twilight,is about a girl Elena who just lost her parents when a new guy, Stefan Salvatore, comes to town but with Stefan also comes trouble, his brother Damon Salvatore. It takes place in a highschool, there is a vampire going after the main character. Silas demands that Damon commit an unthinkable act.
These series make you feel more connection to the reality than Twilight. This show should not be on during prime family viewing either. Maybe I'll catch future episodes on rerun, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it. I have been watching the show since the pilot episode and I absolutely love it. All in all, despite it's flaws, every episode has a mystery to it; it's hard to guess what's going to happen.
All of the characters are good looking and can deliver the snappy dialogue with ease. I wish Twilight was shot by Vampire Diaries technical production team. Please if you don't believe what I have just said sit down and read the books for yourself. It has a romance like Twilight and the intensity of True Blood. Pretty disappointed that they had such a great concept and turned it into a teen soap opera. I admit first two episodes were bit slow and sluggish , but by episode 4 the story really starts to kick in. As of right now the second season is in the first few episodes of airing and the magic has not gone out.
I'll review again when I know what i really think. Elena's best friend is a bubbly psychic, there is no shape shifters read werewolves yet nor mind readers yet , and Elena is not clumsy yet , although she does feel isolated and lives in a very small town. My girlfriend is obsessed with it, but I just cannot suspend my own disbelief enough to take it for anything more than bad acting, terrible plot and cheesy cast. But it's sad how much they knocked off twilight. You have Twilight and True blood and Vampire Diaries but don't let them keep you from watching.
Damon is just like his name demonic,attracting and tempting person. . Here in our house we Love Scifi, Vampires, Fantasy and the like. But wait, the publisher of L. Let's see where they take this and hope they keep true to the feel.
She also has another friend called Meredith and her and Caroline are sorta enemies. Then something magical happens, creeping up silently and latching on without the viewer's notice: interest. While many tend to compare it with the two, it's actually very different. They live in Fell's Church not Mystic Falls or whatever it was called! There is nothing new he can learn, and it makes for a bit of a pedophile storyline. Stephen perfectly reflects his good mood through his face.
