The Vampire Diaries - A Confession

Friday, November 09, 2012

A couple of weeks ago, I started watching the first season of The Vampire Diaries. Not because I had a genuine interest in watching a television series about a topic that has become so clichéd. Rather, it was out of mere curiosity that I decided to tune in. There had been so many tweets popping up in my Twitter feed expressing excitement over season four of The Vampire Diaries, that I felled 'compelled' to see what it was all about. You see, I have a confession to make. I have a thing for vampire stories. Good vampire stories. And when they are depicted on the big screen or on my television set, I become even more enthralled with the dark, handsome portrayals we come to expect of the modern day vampire. Whether or not I have a giant poster of Robert Pattinson is not up for discussion at the moment. But I will confess that the devilishly good-looking Ian Somerhalder has recently caught my eye and has thus earned his way into this post as one of the most irresistible reasons for turning on my new high-definition flat screen TV. To date, I have managed to work my way through to the end of the second season, as a purely research-driven assignment, of course. And while the extremely high number of causalities in The Vampire Diaries seems to drastically outnumber those in Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, the far-reaching story line is nonetheless much easier to tolerate when you have the likes of Ian's character Damon Salvatore as a distraction. Is it just me or does Damon's brother Stefan pale in comparison?

Fess up. Are you on Team Damon or Team Stefan?

    1. I regret that I didn't watch it sooner. Now all I want to do is catch up on all the past seasons. Good news, I'm midway through Season 3. And what it is about Damon? His eyes? His hair? His smile? Or all of the above? ;)

  2. I'm going to put a cat amongst the pigeons, I'm on Team Stefan! I know I'm old enough to know better but I love, love, love the Vampire Diaries! It is my guilty pleasure much to the disgust of my sons who roll their eyes if they catch me watching it!
