Being about Vampires it's hard not to compare Vampire Dairies to all the Supernatural Shows I watched recently..most recently of course True Blood. Watching VD is a substitute after being cut off of a great Show and making me wonder how far this substiute is going to be like True Blood.
Whenever I watch the Show, though Paul Wesley is doing a good job playing Stefan, I keep feeling like Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is going to get more interesting than Stefan will ever be. Why I am comparing it to True Blood in this matter? Simple, because thats exactly what happened with Eric and Bill. Though Bill was supposed to be the Hero and "good" Vampire I dare to say Eric is far more interesting and appealing than Bill.
Seems like most People are preferring the "bad" Vampire character.
I like Vampire Dairies, although it could increase its pace a little; after watching every Episode I feel like i only got worth 15min of Information and story out of it.
Watching yesterdays Episode "Haunted" made me feel like I felt when I started suspecting a soon-to-be involvement of Eric in Sookie's life (and not because she's a telepath, but 'cause he is very much interested in her and not able to realize it).
Damon was already showed to us, once, stroking Elena's face as if feeling deep emotions towards her and today, when he ordered her to leave after she slapped him, it just seemed like there was more to his words..he was afraid he might hurt her, because she's bleeding maybe? Remember when Stefan smelled Elina's blood first time and involuntarily changed? Damon didn't even flinch. Of course he is used to human blood and not deprived like Stefan but I would like to follow my instinct and say there might be more significance to this. And not to forget his big Entrance when Elina wanted her brothers memory to be erased. Before anyone might say, Damon acted out of guilt..remember Damon is not likely the guy to feel guilty because he realizes he made something wrong and the girl he desires point it out to him...Stefan tried many times the "guilt-trip-therapy" with Damon and all it got him was more troubles Damon shoved at him.
I don't know if this is just wishful thinking, 'cause I like Damon, but I really got the feeling he is gonna make Vampire Dairies the reason to watch it, just like Eric magically won over the audience. Keep in mind Ladies and Gentlemen its us who give the writers the inspiration and somehow the direction as to what we would like to see next in the story, so tell your Opinions:
What do you think? Is there a Chance Damon will succeed, like Eric did, to win you over? Is he going to outrun Stefan? More so, do you think him or Eric would be the more interesting Character?
