Sommers Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: May 5th, 2010 There’s one more episode of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, but this really felt like a season finale to me. The writers are going the way of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER season four, and the last episode will probably be a resolution episode from all of the fallout of this season. “The Sun Also Rises” is a well-crafted episode that […]Read On »

TV Review: THE VAMPIRE DIARIES – Season 2- “Daddy Issues”

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is a show that has really grown into one of my weekly must-watch shows. I was never a devotee of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER or CHARMED or even ANGEL, I didn’t really discover series like that until much later on DVD. Having said that, I started with episode one of DIARIES, simply because it came on when I needed a genre show to watch since TRUE BLOOD was on hiatus. I admit I wasn’t instantly sucked into the show, I had to warm up to it, but the series has definitely found its pacing and its overreaching arcs and everything runs like a well-oiled machine.
