The Vampire Diaries
I love this time of year. The cool weather, the beautiful fall colors, and of course all the spooky delights of the Halloween season. For those of you who love all things vampire, might I suggest my latest and greatest guilty pleasure: The Vampire Diaries. The newest TV series is basically a teen soap opera starring two gorgeous blood sucking brothers Stefan and Damon, who both want one thing: the beautiful Elena. There are lots of interesting plot twists, secrets, scandals, and of course plenty of neck biting. One can't help but compare this show to Twilight (which it even references occasionally), but there are some interesting differences. For example, the vampires wear rings which help them to walk around during the daylight, as well as have mind control over their victims. Throw in a gorgeous supporting cast, dark sets, and some serious teen angst, and you have The Vampire Diaries. The show airs Thursdays at 7:00 PM MST on the CW. Happy viewing!
