Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 5

Vampire Diaries – Season 3 – The Reckoning The episode made me fairly apprehensive; I’ll explain why in a little bit, but phew, what a ride! Wasn’t that whole thing just… insanity?! I mean, Klaus, and Stefan… god… anyway, there’s no time like the right time to just… dive right in and get started with…

Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 4

Vampire Diaries – Season 3 – Disturbing Behavior This episode didn’t have any flashbacks, but it had kind of a herky-jerky flow, not to mention, a lot more focus on filler, –that I have to admit, didn’t do a whole lot for me. Don’t get me wrong, I still love the show, and it’s always…

The Vampire Diaries – Season 3 – The End of the Affair Oooh, we’re so happy to have you back, Vampire Diaries! I mean, you’re not True Blood, and you don’t have to be, –you’re unique, and beautiful…. like a Fight Club snowflake. Except with a better agenda, and hotter actors. I mean, Edward Norton…

Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 2

The Vampire Diaries – Season 3 – The Hybrid I’m trying out a new format for this whole synopsis thing; you might recognize the style from what I did this year with True Blood. Feedback is appreciated, but not compulsory. Now, to business! This was a frigging terrific episode, very emotional, –and I can’t wait…

Children of the Night

With the release of “Let Me In,” the American adaptation John Ajvide Lindquist’s novel, a trope that naturally comes to mind is the child vampire. Although as disturbing as it seems shocking, there’ve actually been a fair number of the breed in popular entertainment. One might think that Claudia from Anne Rice’s seminal “Interview With…

The Vampire Diaries Season 2 Episode 1

The Return The season finale of Vampire Diaries had everyone on edge; the kiss that Katherine gave Damon, who mistook her for Elena, the violent attack on Elena’s real father, John Gilbert, Jeremy’s attempted suicide, Anna’s death, Mayor Lockwood’s death at the hands of his own teammates, and Tyler Lockwood’s bizarre reaction to the device…

Vampire Diaries Season Finale! (Season 1, Episode 22)

Oh My Effing God. This episode will absolutely BLOW your mind, –it’s hot, it’s sexy, it’s got action, and deaths, –no ‘big’ deaths really, except for, well, let me not get too ahead of myself here. Basically, it’s the season finale, everything is coming to a conclusion, and yet, they drop all this other hardcore…

The Vampire Diaries, Season 1, Episode 20

Be prepared for flashbacks galore, this episode is chock full of tedious looking back on events; maybe it’s a personal taste issue… But I just can’t get into a flashback. Why not just sum it up in a single sentence: “Stefan forced Damon to transition to full vampire… back in yesteryear.” That was basically the…

The Vampire Diaries, Season 1, Episode 19

Things keep building as the season winds down to its finale; the tension is so thick you just want to …well, yeah, it’s kind of ‘climactic” like an orgasm. But the big finale is our finish, so we have to just grab the sheets and squirm. In this episode, Stefan’s ‘blood problem’ is getting really…

For those of you who don’t follow The Vampire Diaries too closely, –first of all, shame on you, –Malese Jow is the actress portraying Anna, daughter of Pearl. Anna is a young, teen vampire, over a century old, perhaps older even than Damon and Stefan, who worked her butt off to be able to get…

The Vampire Diaries, Season 1, Episode 18

As the season winds down, tension builds, –and it comes to a head when Johnathan Gilbert, brother of Elena’s father, returns to town. Not only does this ‘long lost’ type character come back to town, he also comes back with a chip on his shoulder, during kind of a bad time for everyone involved. Everyone…

The Vampire Diaries, Season 1 Episode 17

A lot happens in this episode, –it’s busy, and thank god, it’s the end of bullshit filler silliness. At least, not so much filler in this episode. As it turns out, Pearl isn’t really interested in killing a bunch of people; she wants to re-assimilate the vampire population in Mystic Falls, without really causing a…
