The Vampire Diaries. Season 1

I keep saying this again and again because it's the only truth in the world right now. Something really really good came from The Twilight Saga phenomenon. So good, in fact, that I want to kiss Stephanie Meyer for all the overrated hype on vampires she brought back this year. I can even give a hug to all the HBO people responsible for porn-vampires in True Blood.

The Vampire Diaries. I never knew I'd fall in love with another vampire show after Buffy The Vampire Slayer, until this one came along. It started low-budget and cheesy at times, but you have the star of the show that is the evil vampire brother, Damon. With characters like Damon, playful and boisterous and quiet all merged into a sexy smirk, I realized this show just can't fail.

And fail it didn't. It had the right amount of sex, supernatural thrill, oh-god-creepy!, ironic and silly humor, and oh-god-I-can't-believe-they-did-that-on-teen-television!

And all because there's this love triangle between a normal girl and two vampire brothers. Slap in complications of vampire town history and not knowing which characters will die (It's fun playing, "So who's the writers gonna kill next?"), and voila, The Vampire Diaries everyone. Don't let the hype get you down, vampires can be both smart and sexy. And teenagers. And still be so good.
