'The Vampire Diaries' - 'Miss Mystic Falls' Recap

by Jane Boursaw, posted Apr 23rd 2010 12:15PM
(S01E19) "I don't hurt people. I don't do that. I'm the good brother." - Stefan

Stefan may think he's the good brother, but despite his best efforts to stay that way, he's going dark. He can't deny his true nature, and drinking human blood just brings that boiling up inside his soul.

'The Vampire Diaries' - 'Under Control' Recap

The Vampire Diaries: Under Control
(S01E18) "Have I entered an alternate universe where Stefan is fun?" - Damon

Somewhere in the last few episodes, things have shifted on 'The Vampire Diaries.' Now Damon seems like the good vamp (well, sort of; how fun was it to see his face when Uncle John came back from the dead?), while Stefan is going dark. I don't mind seeing Stefan go dark, because, frankly, he's a little boring being so virtuous all the time.

But he's not going willingly, that's for sure. He's trying hard to detox, but that drink of human blood last week -- Elena's blood -- gave him a wicked hunger that is not easily satisfied. Is there a 12-step program for vampires?

'The Vampire Diaries' - 'Let the Right One In' Recap

The Vampire Diaries, Let the Right One In
(S01E17) "I'm not gonna turn someone who learned everything he knows about vampires from Netflix." - Anna to Jeremy

There's a storm brewing, not only in the weather, but also those 25 cranky vampires in the farmhouse outside of town. By the end of this episode, there were a few less vampires there, not to mention the owner of the house.

Damon and Alaric made a great badass team, even if Alaric was ticked enough about the whole incident to slug Damon after it was all over. And everything that happened helped to further my fascination with (the still not-dead?) Frederick, especially after Pearl told him they can't live by revenge and need to have better control over their emotions. We can see how well that worked for him.

'The Vampire Diaries' - 'A Few Good Men' Recap

The Vampire Diaries, A Few Good Men(S01E15) "Is there a problem? Did you find her? What's going on?" - Woman's voice on the other end of the cellphone Elena picked up after the mystery guy was hit by the truck

Well, I did what we talked about in the last review and re-watched the earlier episodes of 'The Vampire Diaries' leading up to this one. I think it helped, so I appreciate the discussion we had.

The big thing to me this week was the storyline revolving around Elena's mother -- who she is, what happened to her, and the mystery surrounding whether she's alive or dead. More after the jump.

David Anders Signs for 'Vampire Diaries'

by Mike Moody, posted Feb 24th 2010 12:01PM
david anders Don't feel sorry for David Anders. I know it seems like he's constantly getting killed off or written out of high-profile shows, but the guy always seems to land on his feet with another juicy new role on a popular series.

Just a few days after his most recent TV baddie bit the dust, TV Guide has confirmed that Anders is joining the cast of the CW hit 'The Vampire Diaries'.

Anders has been tapped to play Jonathan Gilbert, Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Jeremy's (Steven R. McQueen) uncle. But don't expect to see him acting like role a model for Mystic Fall's troubled teens. A source tells EW's Michael Ausiello that Uncle Jonathan is coming to town to "cause some trouble."

CW Renews 'Gossip Girl,' 'Vampire Diaries' and More

by Scott Harris, posted Feb 16th 2010 2:45PM
The undead will be breathing new life into the CW lineup for another year, as the network announced today that it has renewed 'The Vampire Diaries' for a second season.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, 'Vampire Diaries' is just one of several top performers for the youthful network that has been given an early renewal. Joining 'Dairies' for another go-round will be '90210,' 'Gossip Girl,' 'Supernatural' and 'America's Next Top Model,' which has yet to even premiere this season (its 14th cycle debuts on Mar.10).

The renewal of 'Vampire Diaries,' while earlier than usual, comes as no surprise, as the freshman hit has quickly established itself as the network's top performer, averaging 4.6 million viewers. And those strong numbers carried over to 'Supernatural,' which benefited from 'Vampire''s lead-in to post strong gains in the key 18-34 demographic over last year.

(S01E14) "Spirits talk, Mr. Salvatore, and so does my granddaughter. You are no friend to us. Now get off my porch." - Sheila to Damon

Well, finally! Finally we get to that darn tomb and see what's in there (lots of scary souls). At the beginning of this episode, I was going to complain about how 'The Vampire Diaries' has been a lot of talk and not much action lately. But at least we got the tomb scene, and Sheila's awesome witch powers. Still ... is it just me, or has the show leveled off a bit on the excitement factor?

Vamps Aren't Tramps: Why Vampires Rule Right Now

by Stephanie Earp, posted Dec 8th 2009 11:55PM

What is the deal with vampires? That seems to be the question on everyone's lips this season. Not just us commoners either - last week George Stromboulopolos asked Shawn Ashmore for his opinion (who is apparently qualified to answer based on his appearance in the 'X-Men' movies) - and Shawn had no reply. When such great minds as these are flummoxed, who am I to tackle the subject? And yet, here we are.

I think we all know that vampires in pop culture are metaphorical, but we're not really sure what they're standing in for. With zombies, George Romero pretty much decided it for us. In fact, the idea that zombies stand for consumerism is so entrenched that one of the few moments of purposeful comedy in 'New Moon' has Bella's friend dismissing the latest horror flick for being so predictable.

'True Blood' Leads People's Choice Awards Nominations

by Allyssa Lee, posted Nov 11th 2009 11:30AM
It's a good year to be undead. The People's Choice Awards nominations have been announced -- and after more than 18 million votes, the masses have made known that they're still thirsting for vampires. 'Twilight' has dominated the movie categories, and the blood-sucking Southern drama 'True Blood' has emerged as a top TV contender.

The HBO series picked up a nod for favorite TV obsession, and star Anna Paquin has been placed in the drama actress category. The gothic show has also been nominated as a sci-fi/fantasy favorite, along with fellow undead series (and best new TV drama nominee) 'The Vampire Diaries.' (The blood lust doesn't end there: Showtime's serial killer series 'Dexter' was also nominated as favorite TV obsession, and don't get us started on all the backstabbing that goes on with fellow obsessions 'Gossip Girl' and 'The Hills.')

Others who made the new TV drama short list include the just-canceled 'Eastwick,' 'FlashForward' and 'The Good Wife', while critical and cult hits 'Modern Family' and 'Glee' will be going up against each other (and the just-canceled 'Hank') for favorite new comedy.

Queen Latifah is hosting the event, which will be broadcast live on CBS Jan. 6. Vote for your favorites here, and check out the full list of TV nominees after the jump.
