1. This must be the first vampire story I have ever seen in whch having sex with your vampire lover does not lead to the end of the world and soul-crushing misery but instead post-coital snuggling. I am still recovering.



Surprisingly, I really like Elena/Stefan - they're prety functional which is a rarity in TV ships, especially ones which involve the undead. My favorite scene with the two of them is when Stefan tries to do the usual "I am leaving you for your own good" thing (which drove me insane with Buffy/Angel btw) and Elena points out that if he is leaving her, it's for his own sake because she's made clear what she wants - him staying. And that knocks some sense into him. I may have cheered. This fixes so much of my problem with the idiotic "for your sake" junk I see in fiction. You know what is doing something for someone's sake? Giving them all the information and then allowing them to make their own decision.

2. This show is so emo. It needs to mock itself a bit.

3. Currently my strongest feeling is wanting to see Damon staked at the end of the show. Ugh. Admittedly, I rarely like bad boy characters at the best of times (grow the heck up and do something productive with yorself!) but Damon passed 'bad boy' about 200 murders ago. Currently he is somewhere between 'serial killer' and 'murdering psychopath' and neither is appealing in the least.

Because...ummmm...I am about 10 minutes into s2 opener ep of Vampire Diaries and I really really like it (it's like a whole different show from the awful pilot episode). Also, I am totally digging Stefan and Stefan/Elena.

I am completely (but pleasantly) shocked.

Oh, and I kinda want Bonnie/Damon :P

In completely unrelated news, I sort of skipped around Giant a bit, and WTF THE HELL ARE YOU DOING, insane father on Min Woo????????????????????????????? What, the fame of Bali Daddy is not letting you sleep at night? UGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH DIE.

Well, this was fun! I thoroughly enjoyed this and will be tuning in for more. I do wish the dialogue was snappier and the show had a bit of a sense of humor about itself, but Nikita is awesome (I've had a long-term girlcrush on Maggie Q, so that undoubtedly helps), there are things blowing up, and Shane West is pretty (I can see myself shipping his character with Maggie's in the future, if the show chooses to go that way. Especially after she shot him :P). I really liked the Ukrainian convict girl as well (I take it she is the other major female character?).

Wiki article says that some critics compared this to the Dollhouse which leaves me scratching my head madly. I mean, if Nikita was a brainwashed sexual slave obedient to her evil masters (who were all woobies, honest!), maybe, but as it is, it's a kickass show about a kickass woman. A show that does not make me cringe.

I am kinda imagining an IRIS cross-over in my head now. :)

ETA: You guys win. I am going to give Vampire Diaries another chance. I am going to watch s2 opener.

I see a number of flisties who love it, so I am considering checking it out. Hence, the poll.

However, there are four things keeping me from it: (1) I watched VD pilot and was bored out of my wits; (2) I find the guy who plays Stefan blindingly hideous; (3) I like the books it's based on and they changed a lot of stuff from them; (4) I could not even get past True Blood pilot - maybe post- Buffy vamp stuff is not my thing.

So, keeping it in mind, should I check it out anyway?
