The start of this show needs to stop with the overly predictable “I’m gonna bite your face off Damon.” It’s getting old. We KNOW it’s a vampire show. But on the plus side, no fog!!! I’d give the whole episode a thumbs-up just on that fact alone. Love the football tryouts – vampires are about super-powers, not just neck-biting, blood-sucking gore. We want more! And finally Damon’s getting more interesting – we like the little streak of “humanity” that’s emerging. Sexy, bad-boy with hidden sensitive side? Yes, please!
