Pretty bad ass show. I watched it because it was rated up there with Supernatural on the CW.

Didn’t know people watched it here.

Of course expect spoilers here

Honestly it has a great cast and some pretty great moments(Damon and Rose comes to mind) Also Kathrine is a bitch but I hope she comes back.

Give it a couple episodes before you judge it fully.

In some cases. But it’s more like a lower age group targeting version.

Vampire Diaries is what you get when you filter everything out that makes True Blood awesome, and add everything that makes Twilight shit.

Yeah, it’s a great show; I’m surprised more people don’t watch it...

I think what turns some people off about this show is the name*, “Vampire Diaries”. It kinda implies that some lovestruck girl (lolBella) is writing down her every mind-numbing thought about a brooding vampire guy (lolEdward). However, it’s actually about the vampire guy -- Stefan -- keeping a journal. :I

Plus, it’s gorier than any show on Prime Time TV out there, barring good ol' Supernatural.

*Note: I also thought this show would be gay -- until I saw Damon merking bitches in Episode 2.

Try the other way around.
Just because it’s on cable doesn’t make it “better”, that’s a stupid assumption.

well that in itself doesn’t sound too bad because true blood does have it’s moments where it is trying to be graphic and nice just for the sake of doing so.

Like when the creators decided to give Lilith the most erect nipples on the planet. I was scared because I thought they were going to pierce through the screen and hit me in the face.

but if vampire diaries is targeted more towards tweens......... ehhhh. then it might have a twlight feel which I am NOT fond of at all.

Yeah Damon is pretty boss. He also has the tendency to be a dick and be right while doing it.

Vampire Diaries isn’t awful, but it’s a far cry from even being remotely as good as True Blood.

I never even mentioned cable.

From what I’ve heard, True Blood is more like Twilight than Vampire Diaries. But hey, if you’re fond of an abhorrently bad story, an annoying-as-shit cast (especially the main character), and wannabe-erotic softcore porn, True Blood is the show for you. I don’t judge.

I assumed you meant Cable TV, due to “a poor man’s []”.

As for Vampire Diaries not being as good as True Blood, lol, tell me what you think makes it “better”.

Supernatural is also focused on the more teen audience. There is some love story in there but there is also more to it than that. It also has better actors and script. It actually makes fun of Twilight in the earlier episodes.

Have you even seen True Blood? Now I’ll be the first to say I thought it was just as gay as Twilight when I first heard of it, but I saw it at someone’s house and I had no idea what I was watching, I actually liked it and when they told me it was True Blood, I was very surprised.

True Blood and Twilight have as much in common as Blade and Twilight, or Hellsing and Twilight.

What dumb-ass told you that?

True Blood is Twilight’s complete antithesis.

I find it to be a much more enjoyable show, and refreshing. I like it’s subtle use of vampire’s revealing themselves to humanity (and the political and social problems that follow) as a way to show the social injustices that happen in actual life (homophobia, racism ect.)

VD, while I won’t say it sucks, is too much like Twilight for me to get anything out of it.

I was the exact same way.

A good friend of mine really liked the show, and I constantly mocked her for it. Out of boredom, I sat down and watched the pilot one day.

Now, it’s the only show I still watch.

I’ve watched both. They both use similar themes. One can just show more nudity/sex and blood and say more adult words. It’s also a bit more light hearted in tone, it’s not a dark gritty vampire series. Though it has it’s dark moments(Ripper Stefan or Damon if you piss him off)

It’s not really all that like Twilight except that Stefan has a similar hairstyle as Edward(Though it’s the other way around. VD came first in book form)

I like True Blood. Though I have only got to the end of the 1st season due to hbo go problems.
