This is a great show! It has a fabulous cast of great (and
beautiful) young actors. The writing is by the awesome Kevin Williamson,
who wrote "Dawson's Creek". It's about vampires, so it's horror; but it is
also a really good teen soap opera. It's just really well done.
When I first heard about the show, I was interested because of
Williamson. Then I heard it was about teen vampires, and I worried that it was a
TV version of "Twilight". However, then I did read that it was based on a
series of teen books that were around long before the Twilight books! And then
the final clincher was that Ian Somerhalder was starring in it. He is gorgeous
and was great on "Lost".
This is a good TV set to own for any fan of horror or soap
operas or TV. The stories are very good and there is a great cliff-hanger
ending of the series. The show has a lot of twists and turns to keep you
The set also has many great special features. "Into Mystic
Falls" is not only a great introduction to the show but gives a lot of detail
about how they put it together. "When Vampires Don't Suck!" focuses on the
show's (and book's) fandom and how they have dealt with it. "A New Breed
of Vampires" has a lot about the casting of the show, including some brief
glimpses of their screen tests. They also include a webisode "A Darker
Truth", and a gag reel. Lastly, you can also download the audio book for
the book "The Awakening". It is quite a good collection to own.
I recommend this show to anyone who loves good TV. This is a
very popular show and should be around for a long time.
