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 »

TV Review: THE VAMPIRE DIARIES – Season 3 – “Smells Like Teen Spirit”

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 »

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: October13, 2010 “The Reckoning” definitely delivers on a LOT of levels as the new season of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES continues. It’s Senior Prank Night and despite the fact that their entire world has been flipped on its ear in the last year or so, Caroline (Candice Accola) is determined that Elena (Nina Dobrev), Bonnie (Katerina Graham), and Tyler (Michael Trevino) are going to have a normal night of fun. Of course, no […]Read On »

TV Review: THE VAMPIRE DIARIES – Season 3 – “Disturbing Behavior”

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Brian Young, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Wendy Stanzler    Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: October 6, 2010 Why is THE VAMPIRE DIARIES like crack? I have no idea. I can’t get enough of this show. When I started watching it, I had finally decided to give it a shot, and I wasn’t all that hot to trot for it, but then after maybe two episodes I was hooked and was completely sucked in to all of the drama and multiple layered plots of the characters […]Read On »

TV Review: THE VAMPIRE DIARIES – Season 3 – “The End of the Affair”

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Caroline Dries, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Chris Grismer   Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: September 29, 2010 Once again, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES delivers with another fine episode. “The End of the Affair” is packed with lavish 1920’s flashbacks, and all kinds of cerebral goodies to chew on in the present. Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) hit Chicago in an effort to find out why Klaus can’t properly create his hybrid army. Of course Stefan knows the real reason, simply that Elena (Nina Dobrev) […]Read On »

TV Review: THE VAMPIRE DIARIES – Season 3 – “The Hybrid”

Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder in THE VAMPIRE DIARIES - Season 3 - "The Hybrid" | ©2011 The CW/Quantrell D. Colbert

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Joshua Butler, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Al Septien Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: September 22, 2010 THE VAMPIRE DIARIES never fails to please in terms of cliffhanger endings and surprises rolling in that are rarely suspected or even hinted at. Last week’s cliffhanger saw Caroline (Candice Accola) gunned down by Carol Lockwood (Susan Walters) with a Vervain tranquilizer, that was a brilliant ending but I think the new episode “The Hybrid” has an even better one (SPOILER ALERT) bringing back Caroline’s father played by Jack […]Read On »

Smith Director: John Behring Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: September 15, 2010 YAY! The wait is finally over and one of my favorite guilty pleasures is back! THE VAMPIRE DIARIES left us in a bit of a lurch last season with Stefan (Paul Wesley) taking off to join Klaus (Joseph Morgan) as he plots for the next phase in his supernatural vendetta. Poor Elena (Nina Dobrev) was left with only Damon (Ian Somerhalder) to make the pain go […]Read On »
