Re: vampires

The Vampire Diaries is Twilight x Dark Shadows. I've learned how to recognize and zap the Twilight part and watch the Dark Shadows part, which is good enough to keep me watching indefinitely. Almost thru S1 now.

I have this theory about TVD: the producers pulled a bait-and-switch on the CW. The first five or six episodes, which CW would have bought the series based on, are pure Twilight. Then the show suddenly starts becoming more Dark Shadowsy- which is probably the show the producers want to make. By that time, the audience was locked in and the ratings were secure. Launching with a more Dark Shadowsy show from the start might have gotten it cancelled, or not picked up by the CW to begin with. Clever.
