Favorite Vampire Diaries (in order)  
No clue why I decided to do this, but I listed all of The Vampire Diaries episodes in order of favorite to least favorite. To be fair, there is no episode that I don't like, and only the last three are episodes I consider merely okay. Anyhoo, no discussion, just a list that I didn't think long and hard about, just went with my first reaction to the episode as I thought of it. Any TVD fans on my flst, I'd be interested in reading your lists. :)

01. "Miss Mystic Falls" (S01E19)
02. "Fool Me Once" (S01E14)
03. "The Return" (S02E01)

Hah, I call it "Brave New Day," Brand New Day," etc. Obviously, this is not a fave episode of mine, LOL!

What? Last night's ep was your #11 OF ALL TIME?! Sigh, I would've seen it by now -- but on the plus side, if my husband likes TVD when we watch tonight, you'll be adding another one to your convert list. :)

(Heh, "Rose" has been my favorite in S2, and it's #19 for you. :p )

I really think that if you had watched s1 first, "Rose" would not be so high on your list. It was THE first episode you saw that had some honest-to-goodness somewhat positive Damon/Elena and it was an extremely powerful scene on top of that. Having so much other powerful, more positive, and in much better overall episodes, "Rose" just didn't stack up. Yes, it's a great episode, but I think every episode beyond a few in the first season are, however, comparatively, it's one of the weaker great ones in terms of story and pacing. At least that's how I felt about it, and I've read that many others felt that way as well. But, hey, maybe you would have loved it so regardless.

I REALLY loved last night's episode. SO GOOD! It was by the same writer who co-wrote my favorite episode (that, yes, does, have my favorite Damon/Elena stuff too).

I kind of had to laugh that the first three episodes were at the bottom but... so true. It really did pick up around episode 6 or 7. The pilot is... really bad. Oh, the fog machine! I'm glad I revisited the show over the summer because when I initially watched the pilot it left me thinking, "no thank you."

I do think that episode 7 was when the show first achieved greatness, but I think that "Family Ties" (ep 4) is underrated. That was the introduction of the town's history, the council, Stefan tricking Damon, locking him in the cellar, Elena being so stand-up, etc.

But yeah, the Pilot ... so beyond their weakest episode. Episode 2 isn't really that awful, it's just that some of the S/E stuff is way, waaaay too forced and the darkened hallways in the hospital drives me insane. But the stuff with Damon, Stefan and Vicki is wickedly awesome. And ep 3 has some really great stuff too, but it hadn't gelled yet. "Family Ties" Is really when it showed what it was capable of, I think, but again, yeah, I think it's underrated too. :(

I'm trying to do this list thing--and I thought to make it "easier" on myself I'd just do season one, but it is SO HARD to just pick ten.

I'll keep at it, but I don't know if I can do it.
