You’re dead, dude. Get over it! – Damon
It’s Halloween, so what better time to sit watching the entire first series of teen horror series, The Vampire Diaries.
The premise is this. Small town girl, Elena Gilbert is busy trying to get over the death of her parents and has recently returned to high school when it comes to the attention of two vampire brothers that she bears a striking resemblance to their old vampire flame, Katherine Pierce – last seen in 1864.
So, first the good brother (well, the one trying to stay off the red stuff) Stefan, and then the not-so-good brother Damon hot foot it back to the town to gaze upon her, but with differing motives.
I won’t say too much more as it would spoil the show, but suffice to say there’s plenty of sibling rivalry, high school angst, romance and blood.
It’s a sexy series, aimed, I suspect at a market a little younger and with more mainstream tastes than my own, but it’s good fun, and I may or may not be on the hunt for series box sets 1-3. Y’know, just to pass the time.
