I watched it.
Aw, come on – you knew I would. How can I NOT watch Vampire Dairies? I’m a sucker (pardon the pun) for kids that are too cool for high school, wallow in angst and lick razor canines. I love stories of attraction where the young couple have little more in common that being good looking and in the same room. Why this captures my imagination, I’m not sure I will ever understand, but I embrace it, and there, I find good company.
Did I like it. Oh, that’s beside the point. I’ll watch it, like I watched creator Kevin Williamson’s other way too self aware teen dramas. However, we are now referring to the show as Dawson’s Neck. There are flaws. Like the best friend – she’s hard to watch. The color of those contacts is unsettling, especially as her left eye is about 2-inches higher then her right. Also, I have a feeling that Stephan’s brother is going to get old really fast. And the game of who’s got the ring, I can see that becoming annoying. I don’t know how long this viewing will last, especially as HULU – my main source for TV these days – doesn’t seem to be hosting the show. (Amazon let me watch the first episode for free – the little pushers! I bet they will make me pay for the rest…)
Speaking of, I love the rules that come with each vampire world. Some vamps can go out in sunlight, some can’t, some won’t. Some fly, some just walk really fast. Pick your gift: mind control, thought reading, super strength, pouty lips. What’s your pleasure. So many tricks and so many ponies.
And – while we’re talking ponies, have you seen this?
