Vampire Diaries, Episode 1, Pilot Air Date 9/10/09
Pros: 1) Dramatic start to the show. 2) Good looking cast. 3) Passable acting by two main characters. 4) Cool vamp face/makeup.
Cons: 1) One word – fog. Hello? Very dated. We like contemporary vampires, especially for this type of hip vampire show. 2) Terrible acting from secondary cast. 3) Choppy scene changes. 4) Reminiscent of Bram Stoker’s Dracula – reincarnation of Mina.
Episode 2 Air Date: 9/17/09
