Its a new show out on some US network, its based on the very first vampire book triology I ever read. It about a vampire called stefan who moves back to his old town and falls for a girl that reminds him of a past love, the only problem is that his brother damon also turns up and tries to make his life a living hell.
This is the story that got me hooked on the vampire legend as a whole. I would love to watch it, but I don't know whether streaming a TV show from the internet is legal or not - sorry to sound stupid but i'm really not up on my technology law.
If anyone has been able to see it for real, can you let me know what they think of it please?
I do hate that show. But then people from here might like it. It has the same sappiness and cheese where everyone is constntly brooding over very easy to solve problems. If you guys like a more grown up show try True Blood, its actually well written.
finally saw the first 2eps on ITV2 or something last ngiht and was underwhelmed, the book wasn't so sappy - but then again i was about 14 when i read that - good grief that like over a decade ago - sorry i wandered there!
Don't think there was enough to hold me in those two eps, but then again I did quiet Damon - reminds me a little of marty or what he may have been like before the experiment....
I've not yet seen this series. I have recorded it but not watched it yet. It does look good from the adverts - lets face it, that's what the adverts are meant to do, make a show look tempting - but it sounds like a lot of you aren't overly impressed. I'll have to try to have a watch sometime and see if it appeals.
To be honest I'm not hugely into angsty vampires, that's probably why Marty's my fave in Vampire High, he's a vamp who enjoys his un-life.
Demona, Darryl (and anyone else). I'd say that the easiest way if you're unsure of copyright law is to share links etc via Private Messages.
Demona, you said you read the books quite a while ago? Have you any links to them where we can get hold of them? I take it you'r not planning on continuing to watch to see if it improves? Damon? Ooh, who's Damon? In the show or IRL?
Lollipopfop, there seems to be a large number of vampire shows you're not keen on, huh? Saying that, given the number of them out there right now, there are gonna be bad ones among the multitudes. My personal favourite obsession for vampires (and werewolves ) is Being Human but I've not had the pleasure of watching True Blood yet. I've heard good things about it though. I dunno if you've found it yet but we've got a section for discussing True Blood too.
so damon is the 'bad' vampire - and really nice to look at in the show! The book is by LJ Smith, I have very old tattered copies around somewhere, but never found it on line - that might have to be a google search! I might the show another ep or two - just because i loved the books so. Also loving the new series of being human!
See I have heard some good things about this show and I have also heard bad things... I was not really too fussed but I have liked some clips I saw on YouTube and think I am going to give this a chance on the ITV Player catch up thing, seems like it could be decent enough tho!
