While I agree that the show has seen its best days and that Klaus especially is far past his expiration date of interesting, I must admit that VD does continue to offer up some good twists. I do like the new vampire hunter and the whole vampire cure thing this season. I even liked the little Klaus-Rebekah-Stefan dinner last week. I thought that was well done, with some nice interaction from all three characters.
What I'm not liking as much is Elena as vampire. She's way too whiny. I think from a creative standpoint it was a good way to go, but the execution is leaving a lot to be desired. One thing I like though is that once she stops whining, she really likes to chomp down on peoples' necks. Seems like she might be a ripper.
