Starting to think that this is better than Twilight!

Ya, I'm starting to think that Vampire Diaries is better than twilight.I have to say the first episode sucks like hell but it started to win me from the second episode. Then the 3rd episode just confirmed it to be one of my fave series. Starting from the casting of characters like ahem Ian S as Damon hehe he's cute :). Then the story is starting to take it's toll when everything between the brothers conflict becomes clear, but hopefully they'll show more creatures. If they have it in the story(book which i haven't read... yet, still lazy). Going back ...Then the best part is that the vamps here have way better powers than the vamps in twilight now. And lastly the vamps here look horrific unlike in twilight. And lastly their graphics are better period. But don't get me wrong I still love twilight(the book).


Oh and for those who love vampire novels you guys should really check out The House of night Novels by P.C. Cast it's really a good novel ;P they should make it a series too. As in they have to!!!!!! lol

I have to say i think its really funny you thought the first episode "sucked like hell" because that episode had more in common with the books they were based on than any of the others thus far. For me personally I was hoping they'd all be like that but to each his own, I've decided to think of them as two completely different stories being told.
The (near) beginning when Elana was writing in her diary and we could hear what she wrote aloud, were the exact words from the beginning of the first book. Plus Stefen "glamoring" the receptionist into accepting him into the school. Also that time in Tanners history class where Stefen corrects a mistake Tanner has made in regards to history, loved that tie-in to the book. (though of course the fact he was correcting him on was different since in the books Stefen and Damon were alive back in the 1400's and in the tv series for some reason they chose to make them only 100 years old or so)
So if you really think that first episode to quote you again "sucked like hell" then you definitely shouldn't read the books :pAlso of all the vampire series I've read I thought Twilight was the worst one, Oo vampires get all sparkly out in the sunlight, wtf is with that bullshit... Granted it did have its good points, i thought integrating werewolves into it was great, and Jacobs character well written. But overall it was pretty much just a FAIL romance novel in my opinion.

Ya I still think the first episode sucked like hell but I like the series now. Like I said I started to like the show after the second episode. And just because I didn't like the first episode it doesn't mean I wouldn't read the book. I have patience. Anyway it's usually like that in some shows or books, the few first chapters or episodes aren't that compelling but when I continue reading or watching it becomes worth it. But still i might be wrong too, maybe the show will be better than the book. That's why I want to read it so I'll know. Better knowing than not right...

Trust me, this IS better then Twilight!I have to agree the first episode was all cheesy and weird, but after a lot of people got into it and the second/third episode started coming out, everyone was thinking the same thing: "This is pretty good..."
I love VD! It's become one of my favorite shows and I have to say it isn't AS cheesy as twilight!

I agree. I through this show was going to be terrible but I kept watching and am so glad I did. I think some shows, it takes a few episodes for the actors to get comfortable with their characters and get into the swing of things.
If you like vampire books the one series which is fantastic, both in it's characters, story-line and writing then take a look at the 'Dead' series by Charlaine Harrison. Books with bite! haha. The series True Blood is based on the books.
But honestly, i read all 10 in like 3 weeks, they are so addictive and every book introduces brand new stuff that is totally thrilling.
1) Dead Until Dark2) Living Dead in Dallas2) Club Dead4) Dead to the world
I can't name all of them but they are defiantly worth a read.
