What is the series about?

The Vampire Diaries is an American supernatural drama television series, which premiered on September 10, 2009, on The CW. Set in the fictional town of Mystic Falls, Virginia, it follows Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev), a vampire who falls in love with the brother of the century Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley), who is also a vampire. Her best friend from childhood Caroline Forbes (Candice Accola) is a witch who has to catch up on her education when she attends a boarding school for witches outside of Mystic Falls. Both boys are initially in love with the girl, but she eventually chooses the vampire, Stefan. Everyone thinks that he is dead, but in truth, he was turned into a vampire by his brother Damon (Ian Somerhalder). The series chronicles the lives of Elena, Stefan, and Damon as they deal with various dangers, their quest to find out where they came from and what they can do next to help themselves and their friends.

What makes this series exciting?

This series is set in a fictional town, where the normal inhabitants know of their existence, but they are not supposed to be seen. The Vampire Diaries revolves around the lives of vampires and witches. Vampires and witchcraft revolve around the scientific fact that what is dead doesn’t come back to life (except for some reason, vampires can). However, in this series, we have a vampire who rose from the dead. Many twists and turns take place as the story goes on. There are also many complications between the characters which make it hard for them to be able to trust each other all of the time.

What are the reviews?

The series is surprisingly well-received. IMDb has rated it a 7.7 out of 10 (with over 2000 votes), which is particularly unusual for a series that has only one season. The Vampire Diaries has been successful in the United Kingdom, where the first two seasons have just been released on DVD and Blu-Ray, with the third season to follow soon. However, there are negative reviews too: many people dislike Nina Dobrev’s acting and her character in the series, although they seem to like her character in The Perks of Being a Wallflower movie more than they do her character in The Vampire Diaries.
