Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Brian Young, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: John Dahl Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: January 19, 2012 I appreciate that THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is constantly evolving their characters and the characters relationships to each other. I really do. I don’t like tuning into a show every week to find the same old stagnant relationships that we’ve seen for a couple of seasons continue to limp towards some kind of inevitable confrontation or goal. The writers on this show consistently try to up the ante and to […]Read On »

TV Review: THE VAMPIRE DIARIES – Season 3 – “Our Town”

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Rebecca Sonnenshine, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Wendy Stanzler Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: January 12, 2012 THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is still one of my favorite guilty pleasures on television. The series is such a soap opera with supernatural elements that you can’t tear yourself away for fear of missing something important (or something tiny that will turn out to be important). “Our Town” continues the power play between Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Stefan (Paul Wesley); each one seeing how they can out maneuver and out […]Read On »

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Michael Narducci, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: John Behring    Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: January 5, 2012 Well, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is back from hiatus finally, and once again the clever writers of the series have found ways to change relationships, and flip a lot of things on their ears with “The New Deal” Before the break the big plan to kill Klaus (Joseph Morgan) was kiboshed by Stefan (Paul Wesley) who was trying to save Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) and really pretty […]Read On »

The vampires on THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, now in its third season Thursdays at 8 PM on the CW, have a lot to write about in their journals, particularly when it comes to their family relationships. From the start, we’ve had the complicated sibling relationship between Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder), both in love with the mortal Elena (Nina Dobrev). Last season, we met Daniel Gillies as Elijah, one of the Original vampires, whose brother Klaus (Joseph Morgan) is a half-vampire/half-werewolf hybrid. This might not be so bad if Klaus hadn’t killed the rest of the family and now keeps […]Read On »

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Julie Plec & Caroline Dries, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Rob Hardy    Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: October 20, 2010 I am consistently pleased with the way that THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is re-writing its own rules and making all kinds of changes in practically every episode. It seems like every single week the cliff-hanger this season is something completely unexpected and I love that about this show! “Smells like Teen Spirit” is no exception to the way the show is bending and twisting this season to […]Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: March 16, 2011 We are on week two of the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, and after losing Ashthon Jones and having all females in the bottom three, I made the argument that once again despite all the changes in format that the tween 13-year-old girls are dominating the voting bloc. Now, obviously, it may be too early to tell but if we end up with all the chicks going first in the first few weeks, it will probably ring true […]Read On »
