Re: The Vampire Diaries - Season 4

Once again we have a plotline involving supposedly sympathetic people planning mass murder and/or the destruction of the world for the sake of some stupidity. Charming.

As for Matt: it's pretty clear that nobody cares about him. He's the last human of the group, and nobody bothers to suggest giving him Jeremy's ring.

Regarding Damon: Seriously? Your solution is to turn off the emotions of a newbie vampire...? She's your sire. You could have just told her to be at peace over Jeremy's passing. You didn't need to shut all her emotions down and turn her into ripper 2.0 (or 3.0?).

Re: The Vampire Diaries - Season 4

Yeah, the whole turning off her emotions thing was kinda stupid. Didn't everything go to hell when that happened to Stefan? It's also getting a little annoying that they seem to just keep randomly throwing Katherine into the story just for the hell of it.
I'll admit my memory of it isn't real clear, but I thought everyone but Bonnie was actually disgusted by the whole sacrificing twelve people thing?

I think the characters are losing IQ points. At least it felt like they would ask the obvious questions back in seasons 1 and 2. Now they just feel like mindless cardboard cutouts moved around to suit the plot.
The difference between Kevin Williamson showrunning and Julie Plec showrunning.

Then again, last night I gave up on Williamson's The Following because it was going nowhere, so...

Yes, but now she's in thrall to Shane/Silas, so she's just a programmed drone. Until she's conveniently not.
