Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Story by Elizabeth R. Finch & Brett Matthews, Teleplay by Julie Plec,   Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: John Behring     Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: May 10, 2012 I love it that THE VAMPIRE DIARIES can still have a season finale that not only shakes up most of the lives of the characters, but changes the game in significant ways. “The Departed” is a great example of how to get rid of unwanted or tired storylines, add new elements to existing storylines, and generally re-boot your […]Read On »

Jeremy Renner is no stranger to playing men caught up in violent activity on the streets or in war.

Jackson – THE TOWN, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL and 28 WEEKS LATER.

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Michael Narducci, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Joshua Butler     Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: April 24, 2012 The most important thing about THE VAMPIRE DIARIES episode “Do not go Gentle” is the fact that they are finally doing something with Alaric (Matthew Davis) that is worthwhile! For the better part of this season I have been railing on the fact that the writers just can’t seem to make up their minds in regards to what to do with Alaric. He gets smacked around, killed and […]Read On »

Smith Director: Chris Grismer     Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: April 19, 2012 With “Heart of Darkness”, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES returns from yet another break. Anyone remember them taking this many breaks in past seasons? Anywho, this episode saw not just the return of one of my favorite guilty pleasures, but also the return of two of my favorite boys on the show, Tyler (Michael Trevino) and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen). Not that Mystic Falls has had a […]Read On »

While at today’s NBCUniversal Summer Press Day 2012, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES actor Daniel Gillies hinted that he’s not completely done with THE VAMPIRE DIARIES even though his character Elijah Mikaelson had left town at the end of “All My Children” and he is also starring in the new NBC medical drama SAVING HOPE debuting on June 7. “I have not entirely left THE VAMPIRE DIARIES,” says Gillies. “Fortunately we film at different times during the year. I’m deeply indebted to what [THE VAMPIRE DIARIES] has given me, but this show [SAVING HOPE] takes precedence. I love [DIARIES executive producers] Julie […]Read On »

Miller Tobin     Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: March 22, 2012 With “The Murder of One”, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES solves some old problems, but in doing so makes things even more complicated for our gang in Mystic Falls.

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Rebecca Sonnenshine, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Lance Anderson   Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: March 22, 2012 Hmmm, two episodes back in and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES still doesn’t feel like it’s quite up to its potential. This series has been one of my favorite guilty pleasures for a couple of years, but following on the heels of the original vamp storyline this season, it seems that the writers are at a loss as to what to do next (besides bodily harm to Alaric (Matt Davis). So […]Read On »
