I think what I like the most about the show Vampire Diaries, ok so what I like most in addition to the fact that there are two super cute boys on there, is it’s a nice mixture of drama and horror.
During the first season there were several times when I jumped or had to cover my mouth to keep from screaming out and waking up the kids and/or the hubs. Probably the scene that sticks out most in my mind was in “Friday Night Bites”. This is the episode where Stefan joins the football team even though he really shouldn’t because one of the things that come with being a vampire is superior athleticism. Anyway, all kinds of people are being attacked and killed in town, including the football coach! Most of the townspeople chalk it up to some kind of while animal but the people in the know, like the sheriff and mayor know that their are vampires back in town.
Every time someone got attacked I was covering my eyes. Yes I’m a sucker for cheap scares.
So in addition to drama and horror I also love comedy. On The Complete First Season Blu-ray/DVD set they have a gag reel as part of the 8 hours of bonus features available. There’s nothing better than watching actors try to finish a suspenseful scene and end up cracking up because they are trying to be so serious.
The Complete First Season of Vampire Diaries will be available on August 31st but you can pre-order it online!
