Fresh on the heels of the boring Twilight craze, and the well-deserved True Blood phase, CW is offering up its latest in teen dramas. Apparently, this show drew 5 million viewers its first night. That’s probably due to Twilight-hype. I can’t stand Twilight. It sucks ass. I couldn’t read the books, but read a review from Dan Bergstein on those Stephanie Meyer books. It was very entertaining. The movie kind of sucked as well.

This is the situation, as I’ve divined it using my psychic powers. The Fox network saw that Twilight was really working well. Wow, maybe vamps are cool again, said one exec. Another said, maybe not, remember Forever Knight. Then, everyone went bonkers for True Blood. The same exec said it confirmed his theory that vamps are back in, notably teen vamps, not crazy sex-addicted vamps. One exec mentioned Teen Wolf, the other slapped him on the back of the head.

So, we need to find a teen vampire series. Wait, my daughter used to read some vampire thingie called The Vampire Diaries in the 90s. Let’s pressure L. J. Smith to write some sequels as an added incentive. That will make it cool!

Warning: spoilers ahead

I’ll admit that the whole Petrova doppelganger is somewhat interesting, but the whole Sun/Moon curse thing that was laid onto them by some Shaman is idiotic. I ran out of time to watch the show and over the summer, I had other things to do then recap these. I have to admit that even though I started recapping the show to make fun of it, it’s slightly grown on me, thanks to the interesting changes that have happened at the end of the second season. The third season just started and I’m trying to catch up.

The show ended quite well in the second season. There were a lot of changes, quite a few characters died then came back, but all in all, it’s not so bad. I’ve actually started watching the third season.
