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 »

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Brian Young & Evan Bleiweiss, Based on the book by L.J. 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 »

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Caroline Dries, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: J. 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. At the end of last episode Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) had the last pieces of the mystical white oak tree in the form of a Mystic Falls Bridge sign. The big plan is to make the sign […]Read On »

TV Review: THE VAMPIRE DIARIES – Season 3 – “Break on Through”

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 »

TV Review: THE VAMPIRE DIARIES – Season 3 – “1912”

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Julie Plec & Elisabeth Finch, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: John Behring  Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: March 15, 2012 THE VAMPIRE DIARIES has a habit of giving audiences slam bang endings when they take breaks, and really strong episodes to kick off the show when it returns. That is why the return from a break episode “1912” is so perplexing to me. It just wasn’t good. It was boring, and there was little or nothing going on besides a few minor revelations that really don’t […]Read On »

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Evan Bleiweiss, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Pascal Verschooris  Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: February 16, 2012 Well, that was the shortest plot thread in the history of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES plot threads, now wasn’t it kids? By plot thread I am of course referencing the plot where Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and all of his siblings are tied together by their resurrected witch of a mother Esther (Alice Evans), so she can make them mortal and then kill them off. Sad that it only lasted two […]Read On »

TV Review: THE VAMPIRE DIARIES – Season 3 – “Dangerous Liaisons”

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: February 9, 2012 THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is making the storyline involving Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and his original vampire family at least interesting to watch. I was concerned initially at the start of the season when they brought Klaus back. Bringing back a villain from a previous season seemed weak sauce compared to how they had leveled up between prior seasons of the show. However, I have been pleasantly surprised with all of […]Read On »

TV Review: THE VAMPIRE DIARIES – Season 3 – “Bringing Out the Dead”

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Turi Meyer, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Jeffrey G. Hunt  Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: February 2, 2012 So the new episode of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is all about family. “Bringing Out the Dead” has some truly touching moments, and then some nice shockers and twists as usual. What exactly does family mean to our Mystic Falls crew? The ties that bind are tested and tightened in some cases as everyone gets put through the paces and more plots against Klaus (Joseph Morgan) move forward. The […]Read On »
