The Cell

The Vampire Diaries 5×09 ‘The Cell’: I am number 21051

That movie was super creepy….like with a capital C! I could never watch it, even though it had a few interesting artsy locations like the desert in Namibia with the white horse (or black). But props to the writers for titling this way the episode as really it was the most uncomfortable episode of TVD I […]

Dead Man on Campus

The Vampire Diaries 5×08 ‘Dead Man on Campus’: Suck it up

So it was a complete no-brainer that having killed someone who was supposed to be this season’s big bad (and who made last season barely tolerable) that show would just brush everything away and be like next stop – weird college stuff. But than again taking into account the life these characters have had ever […]

Death and the Maiden

The Vampire Diaries 5×07 ‘Death and The Maiden’: The cute one is here!

Well I have to admit was quite THE episode of TVD – three characters died, one was came back, Katherine is aging and Caroline again complained about her love life while doing the only part the writers seem to have going for her these days – fetch girl! Like again, the humor was great, especially in […]

Handle with Care

The Vampire Diaries 5×06 ‘Handle With Care’: Secrets of Snooki’s backyard

A lot of things went down in this episode…Everybody was doing stuff in the name of LOVE. Damon wanted to bring Bonnie back for Elena’s smile to come back, Jeremy wanted to bring Bonnie back because heart issues, Silas wanted to die just to be with Amara, Caroline complained about her miserable love life and […]

The Originals 1×6 ‘Fruit of the Poisoned Tree’: Vampire book club

Usually I can brush off Elijah, but my smile towards him was as big as Klaus’ this week (more on that heartwarming moment later). The brother that’s usually like, “let’s talk about our feelings” outdid Klaus in evil, Hayley had a brush with death, Cami ruffled the wrong feathers, Marcel was whatever and Rebekah will […]

Handle with Care

The Vampire Diaries 5×05 ‘Monster’s Ball’: All about my witch of a friend

Do you hate it when people bore you with details you could not care less about? TMI concept was created for a reason. It took me some time to learn how to master the ‘goes-into-one-ear-out-the-other’ yet keep a sympathetic poker face. Sometimes, I wish I could do it with this show because really, one thing […]

For Whom the Bell Tolls

The Vampire Diaries 5×04 ‘For Whom The Bell Tolls’: No weddings and a funeral

Ah, this episode was basically “meh” because there was no Silas, no Katherine and a very sort-of-wow cliffhanger took place in the last 10 seconds…and there were ghosts, which clearly defined this episode as very boring S3-type one (Ghost World anyone?). Yeah, so I am going to keep it very short and sweet…as I possibly […]

Original Sin

The Vampire Diaries 5×03 ‘Original Sin’: Truth about front row seats

So I have come to a conclusion that there is a very big difference between when I sit down to watch an episode of TVD and sit down to type up a review…because when I watching I am almost fine with everything, but when I write thoughts and logic fails get into my head. Like […]

True Lies

The Vampire Diaries 5×02 ‘True Lies’: You do realize you are dating a reformed serial killer

LOL, good one Damon. But so true. I love it when TVD jokes at itself because while we can sit and complain about the lack of good story lines, one thing we should be confessing in a therapy session one day is that we have been watching a show about hot serial killers falling in love […]

I Know What You Did Last Summer

The Vampire Diaries 5×01 ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’: Killing 101

Sorry for the creepy title, but taking into account this surprisingly good SEASON 5 premiere of The Vampire Diaries, it looks like the show did not waste any time getting back to basics. But before that, give yourselves a round of applause because guys, this show is in its 5th season! Five years we have […]

Graduation

The Vampire Diaries 4×23 ‘Graduation’: And then THIS happened!

Wow, I think we can safely say that 2013 finale week (or weeks) have been quite rewarding so far….Emily Thorne revealed her true identity to Jack….We got to finally meet THE MOTHER…and now ladies and gentlemen…TVD had a season finale which was almost as awesome as the return of Katherine in s1. For months everything […]

The Walking Dead

The Vampire Diaries 4×22 ‘The Walking Dead’: They’re Back!

Ok, so I jumped the gun last time thinking we were in for an “April’s Fool Day” graduation episode….I apologize. Before the season 4 finale we were supposed to watch an episode called “The Walking Dead” because well, there were loads of dead people walking around, although its kind of hilarious and weird at the same time […]

She’s Come Undone

The Vampire Diaries 4×21 ‘She’s Come Undone’: You Dated That?!

Ok, I was wrong when putting in the cons list last time the thing about torture. Actually, when you come to think, of it torture is something that this show does best – it is like the writers favorite creative subject to explore…. be it Caroline, Tyler, Stefan, Damon, Caroline and well, Caroline again. We […]

The Originals

The Vampire Diaries 4×20 ‘The Originals’: Satan’s Child

Ok, where to even begin? Um, so the best part of this episode was everything until the 22nd minute and 35 seconds. I even wanted to title my review “MARCEL RULES!” – and then witch number 2 uttered the words: “I have a special gift”….and I was like oh this has to be good….and she […]

Pictures of You

The Vampire Diaries 4×19 ‘Pictures of You’: Don’t Eat The Prom Queen!

I think we can all agree with Caroline’s best line of the episode: “I know you told me to kill her with kindness. But can I just kill her” because that is how I feel about that episode and have been feeling about the show in general this season. Here is why – this was […]

American Gothic

The Vampire Diaries 4×18 ‘American Gothic’: More Like Psycho

So I ended my last review gushing over the three things I was excited for this episode – the return of dapper Elijah, scheming Katherine and on the love front – Klaroline became sort of friends.  Now that was all awesome because almost all episodes Elijah is in are just that good and when you put Katherine […]

Because the Night

The Vampire Diaries 4×17 ‘Because The Night’: That 70’s vampire show

Haha, got ya! Because what exactly proved that those Damon flashbacks were from the 70’s? Certainly not Damon’s VERY visible 80’s eyeliner or the lack of hippy clothing from Lexi. Yawnyway, this episode was all about to two things – students playing the master and the master becoming the student. Also lots of ews! Let’s […]

Bring it On

The Vampire Diaries 4×16 ‘Bring It On’: Prioritize!

Ok and we are back! Surprisingly enough, I actually enjoyed this episode, yeah that is right – ENJOYED! Well aside from whatever that was that took place between Klaus and Hayley because on this show it only matters who the main three characters have sex with, regulars are just ..Eh. But nice to know Klaus […]

Stand by Me

The Vampire Diaries 4×15 ‘Stand By Me’: Total Shutdown

I know that probably people are going to praise this episode for the intensity of the situation, the visible countdown to Elena’s final breaking point and overall good performances by the entire cast in showing us that for once not one of them could really do anything about bringing Jeremy back even when brainwashed Bonnie […]

Down the Rabbit Hole

The Vampire Diaries 4×14 ‘Down The Rabbit Hole’: The Bitch Is Back!

I think I finally realized what TVD’ s main problem is – the viewers predict what is going to happen because it’s so damn obvious! Of coarse the cure is for only ONE person! Of coarse, Silas was some how controlling Shane to be brought back from the dead! Of coarse, it was Katherine who […]
