"Seepers" review: Sanctuary - Tesla returns in the "Vampire Diaries" episode

Sanctuary has always been unabashedly derivative, so it was only a matter of time before we got an episode that reflects the current interest in young, hot vampires. Sanctuary's smart move was to put a tongue-in-cheek spin on the story. Squeezing in references to True Blood, Buffy, and of course Bram Stoker, the writers entered cornball territory with the dialogue. ("I think Nikola's about to bite off more than he can chew"? Dear God.) Still, the return of the brilliant Tesla was worth any number of unnecessary and not very clever puns.

as corny as the episode was (ew, bad acting from the young vampires, much?)... it was brilliant. the cheesy dialogue being reminescent of past vampire shows (ie: Buffy, and the others you mentioned)...
and i agree that i would take any amount of cheese... for tesla!!
so awesome to see tesla again. :D
