The Vampire Diaries

CW The Vampire Diaries

We Liked: Vampires, witches, werewolves, ghosts even hybrids vampire-werewolves. Strong vampire lore with vampire originals and bloodlines.

We Disliked: Too much romance at times, Twilight romance to the extreme. Later seasons have more action.

Our Final Take: 5 / 5 - Excellent

CW The Vampire Diaries Season 1 Review

It's Elena's first day back at Mystic Falls High School since the tragic death of her parents. Along with her Aunt Jenna, Elena tries her best to look after her troubled younger brother, Jeremy, and salvage what family they have left. The first day is already shaping up to be a struggle for Elena until she meets the mysterious new kid at school, Stefan. Elena is touched that he can relate to what she's going through. What Elena doesn't know is that Stefan is a vampire, constantly resisting the urge to taste her blood. As their undeniable connection grows deeper, Stefan's dangerous older brother, Damon, shows up to wreak havoc on the town of Mystic Falls - and claim Elena for himself. The Vampire Diaries is based on the bestselling book series from Alloy Entertainment.

CW The Vampire Diaries Season 2 Review

They're back - and they're not alone. The seductive characters of The Vampire Diaries Season Two. This time Elena, Stefan, Damon and the other residents of Mystic Falls are joined by sinister new blood. Released from the tomb, Katherine unleashes her personal brand of evil in a diabolical plot. The Originals - the world's oldest and most dangerous vampires - hunt for Elena, who discovers she has a terrifying connection to their world. And now bloodsuckers aren't the only monsters in town. On moonlit nights, werewolves roam in search of victims including vampires, who succumb to a single werewolf bite. The Vampire Diaries: unending suspense, undying romance.

CW The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Review

The vampires of The Vampire Diaries are back. Stefan is now helping Klaus while Damon and Elena join forces to rescue Stefan from Klaus. Damon and Elena do this while facing emotional tensions between one another. Jeremy and Bonnie have their own problems as spirits of the dead flood into the world of the living. Caroline and Tyler become further entangled in a new found love. To make matters worse, the original vampire hunter and his kin arise from their caskets after 1,000 years. All of the hybrids, ghosts, witches, vampires and werewolves must band together to fight off the original vampire hunter.

This season brought a lot of much-needed action to the popular TV series. I loved the extra back story into the original vampire hunter and his kin. Very rich with folklore and the best season so far!
