First aired: 2011-1012
When I reviewed the First Season of the Vampire Diaries I was disappointed, at least for the first four episodes, but felt it pulled itself together and offered a good showing eventually. Not as good as some series but still worthwhile if a little teen.
Come the second season a lot of the angst was lost and the show, overall, improved (though the score remained the same).
Season 3 and I expected it to build in the general direction of the first two seasons but, instead, I felt that the show stagnated.
|Stefan - bad and bitey|
|Ian Somerhalder as Damon|
For this season 5 out of 10, with a belief that if the series continues on its path it is going to drop below average before very long, as it is teetering now.
