The Vampire Diaries [4.5 out of 5] Category : Drama, FantasyI’m a huge fan of The Originals, it turns out it’s actually a spin off of The Vampire Diaries, a show that’s been around since 2009. 7 seasons in in fact which is awesome for any TV show these days. The golden age of TV they say this past decade has been, but that means new shows starting constantly and then cancelled abruptly when it doesn’t do well. I am still mourning the loss of The Secret Circle. Back to TVD, it is surprisingly good. It started a year after Twillight (2008) came along. Vampirism went full fledge mainstream from thereon forth. Reluctant at first to watch TVD due to its tragic synopsis ‘A teenage girl is torn between two vampire brothers’, as I completed season 7’s finale, very clearly I’ve been converted and consider me now a huge fan. Similar to how I never got around to watching Teen Wolf as well though. I don’t think I was meant to be part of the demographic. But hey, maybe I should give it a shot? It could be another TVD. As work begins to get hectic, I seem to watch more Netflix. A direct correlation to my productivity surprisingly. So yes, give this show a shot. I’ve fallen in love with the Salvatore brothers. Dare I say almost as much as The Winchesters from good ol’ Supernatural. I love the cast of TVD, a good mix of personalities and age groups. Elena, the female lead is pretty kick ass as well. Good storyline. Fantastic soundtrack as well! Just as good as Reign and that says a lot! 4.5 out of 5.
