It is the considerable opinion of BuddyTV that the people should not be allowed to vote. This morning the 2011 People‘s Choice Award nominees were announced and the choices are less than inspired. Sure, like a broken clock, some of the choices show an impressive exhibition of taste (nominating Ian Somerhalder‘s highly entertaining performance on The Vampire Diaries), but mostly, it‘s an embarrassment. Read more »

The mid-season finale of The Vampire Diaries was more like The Werewolf Diaries as Tyler took center stage and underwent his first transformation.

Instead, I got a few loose ends.  Read more »

On the last episode of The Vampire Diaries, Stefan brought back another possible threat to the non-human citizens of Mystic Falls: John Gilbert.

We last saw him telling Damon how to kill an Original. Later on, he swore to get Katherine out of the tomb.Test Yourself on Episode 2.13: "Daddy Issues" Read more »
This week, The Vampire Diaries is filled with heart. Sure, there‘s romance, but mostly I‘m talking about the huge number of hearts ripped from people‘s chests, plus the fact that Stefan, Damon and Luka all get tortured and Alaric gets killed. Happy Valentine‘s Day!Despite the high level of bloodshed, there are also great moments of romance for Caroline and Matt and, most importantly, Bonnie and Jeremy, who finally share their first kiss.  Read more »
This year on The Vampire Diaries was supposed to be the season of the wolf. The arrival of Mason and Tyler‘s transformation helped introduce werewolves into the show‘s mythology. But instead of being scary, the werewolves have turned out to be a real dud.In the past two weeks, the number of dead werewolves has climbed to double digits thanks to the forest brawl and the arrival of Elijah. Early on we were told that werewolves are an endangered species, now we know why. It‘s not the vampires who suck, it‘s the werewolves.  Read more »

If you‘re not familiar with the traditions of the Passover Seder, a seat is left empty for Elijah, who it is said will visit each house to foreshadow the coming of the Messiah and the end of days. Well, on tonight‘s episode of The Vampire Diaries, Elijah came to the Salvatore house not for a Seder, but for a dinner party. Regardless of the reason, it certainly does spell the end of days for someone and the arrival of someone else, though I‘d hardly call her the Messiah.  Read more »
At best, the Salvatores and Elena made an even trade when they got rid of Elijah, but freed Katherine from the Tomb last week on The Vampire Diaries. They just traded one villain for another, and while Elijah may be stronger thanks to his status as an Original, Katherine is a lot better at mind games and using her resemblance to Elena for her own devious plans.  Read more »
Last week on The Vampire Diaries, the gang‘s defenses were weakened. First, Jonas sapped Bonnie of her powers and endangered the upcoming sacrifice. Then, Elijah was killed and Katherine managed to escape from the tomb to tell the gang about Klaus‘ arrival. Think You Know Episode 2.15: "The Dinner Party"?We left our fans two major questions regarding these twists on The Vampire Diaries, and here‘s what they had to say. Read more »
After Elijah‘s death, I thought it might be a while before The Vampire Diaries killed another major character. How wrong I was, because in this episode, two major characters are killed, a major secret is revealed and a shocking return is sure to cause some trouble.With Katherine back, she‘s up to her old tricks, but she also wants to team up with the Salvatores to kill Klaus, which they understandably have a hard time believing.  Read more »

It seems as though Mother‘s Day will be coming early to The Vampire Diaries, since we‘ll see more of Isobel on the show this April. Don‘t expect any flowers or hugs though.

However, the trailer showed her with Katherine later on. And we‘re sure we can‘t trust either of them. For all we know, she was sent there by the looming threat that is Klaus.  Read more »

Both of them seem to be missing out on the action for now, although that might change when the show returns this April.Quiz: Think You Know the TVD Werewolves?  Read more »
Welcome to The GBU, a weekly column coming every Monday where I look at the Good, the Bad and the Ugly on TV.There have been a lot of actors who started with minor commercial roles, but it‘s hard to transition being a major commercial spokesperson into an actual acting career.

There are two basic kinds of Vampire Diaries episodes: the set-up and the payoff.

When Vampire Diaries and Supernatural Collide Here‘s some juicy Vampire Diaries casting news to sink your teeth into. The mysterious town of Mystic Falls is about to land a new sexy vampire (is there any other kind). The show has cast Lauren Cohan to play the role of 500 year old Rose. We don‘t know much about her character but her character but we can bet that this sexy "young" vamp will make a pass at Damon.Hardcore CW fans surely will remember Cohan as Bela Talbot from season 3 of Supernatural.

We‘ve only just met the infamous Klaus on The Vampire Diaries, but the one thing on everyone‘s minds is how to get rid of the guy. It‘s not fair to Joseph Morgan, really. Still, his character is a threat to Elena and that‘s all the reason the Salvatores need to make him disappear.This week, the fans have pooled their ideas to help out Damon and Stefan in bringing the Original to an end. Be warned; there will be bloodshed.How Much Do You Know About the TVD Sacrifice? Read more »
I was ready to write this episode of The Vampire Diaries off as a slow, emotional one where nothing big happens. Then two HUGE things happened in the last minute. There weren‘t a lot of witty one-liners or fierce action, but, as is often the case with The Vampire Diaries, I gasped a lot. Read more »
I know I sound like a broken record, but I‘m amazed at how good The Vampire Diaries is at shocking me.

It also raises a big question: What happens to Aunt Jenna now?  Read more »
