I know the whole VAMPIRE-MANIA is getting too cliché but i'm loving The Vampire Diaries so much! When I first heard of it i was so esceptic because i thought the characters were a copycat of Edward and Bella in Twilight (I mean, look at their skin colours, hair colours, etc.) but then i saw the show and got charmed with it. I remember when my beloved friend Daniella told me "Oh c'mon Josh, u must see it.. it's different from Twilight, etc haha"..
All I can say is that The Vampire Diaries IS NOT Twilight. This is scarier, not-so-commercial and different. You deff must see it and I think the showstopper is Ian Somerhalder because his performance on the show is just INCREDIBLE! Deff check it out!
