FINALLY! After a long, LOOOONG break, the Vampire Diaries is returning tonight! Is everyone excited? Yes, I know you are. Okay, if you're not, then just play along. OR START WATCHING! I promise, you will love this show. I thought we could all get in the mood for tonight with @RayneatTwilight's Vampire Diaries video. She won 2nd place in the Vampire Diaries Fansite contest. (I kinda think she should have won first place!)
And, I made a video of Stefan and Damon for Twilightheaded - to try and talk the girls into watching, or at least reading the books. It did not work. *glares at Meadow, Spank, and Ginger* But, that should help us get in the mood too!
And, you know how we like to relate things back to books, right? Watch me do that... A lot of people have expressed dismay over the fact that the Vampire Diaries show is VERY different from the books. Luckily, I have not read them since September 2008 and I have a bad memory, so it's not bothering me that much. But, I do understand this point of view. I had just finished the True Blood books when the HBO show started. I tried and tried to watch, but it was so different - I couldn't handle it (even with Eric Northman). I decided to wait and try again when the books weren't so fresh in my mind. It hasn't happened... yet.
I'm sorry I'm not on the Vampire Diaries bandwagon, it's nothing personal, honest! It's just that there is only so much time I can commit to vampire-related lusting and I've used all of it with Twilight/True Blood. I can still WATCH True Blood, but I had to accept that there was a disconnect between the books and the show.
It still drives me a little crazy, but that's mostly just Anna Paquin's acting.
*giggles* Yeah, I've heard that she isn't the best.
What about you? Have you read The Vampire Diaries? Do you watch the show too? And what about True Blood? Does it drive you crazy when the tv shows (and movies, for that matter) depart too far from the text? Can you still watch and appreciate it?
