Since this post is riding on the coat tails of the previous one I figure it is only fitting to have this one about the television series The Vampire Diaries which is riding off the coat tails of Twilight. Some may not know that this series is actually based off of a book series of the same name that was actually written before Twilight.
I have not read the Vampire Diaries series so I was a little worried when this show first aired that these vampires would also be a little safe. I did find, like many of the more modern day vampires, they have a strong romantic nature. I find it kind of hard to believe that a 100 plus year old vampire would ever fall in love with a teenage girl no matter how mature she may seem, but that’s just me.
This show showcases two different kinds of vampire in the characters of the vampire brothers. One brother who feeds on animals is the safe, romantic, one who keeps a diary; where the other on is cruel, hates everyone, and feeds off humans. Of course both of them are able to make all the girls swoon, and oh boy I wonder if the teenage girl protagonist will be able to change the bad one and show him how to love again. The show is still new, so it will be interesting to see how the vampires evolve.
