Yo, Friends List!  
Anyone who even scrolls through my posts knows that I'm majorly obsessed with The Vampire Diaries. Not all of you watch it for various reasons. Well, I'm giving one more shout-out in an attempt to get some of you to give it a shot. Netflix bought the rights to a bunch of CW shows for instant watch and TVD is one of them.

That's right, if you have Netflix,you can watch the first two seasons of The Vampire Diaries through Instant Watch! (Obviously, you'll have to find alternative ways of watching season 03 -- they just aired episode 5.)

So, give it a shot. I doubt highly that any of you will regret it. The first three episodes do initially come across exactly what you'd expect a vampire show on the CW to be like, but it starts to get really good, then great, then fantastic, the OMG!awesome and has pretty much stayed there for most of its run so far. (And even the first three episodes are MUCH better upon rewatch.)

Just try it. Try to get through episode four. It's a really, really, really, really good show. In all my years of TV-watching, I have NEVER been this in love with a show before. And even if you're not into vampires (yes, leucocrystal, I'm thinking of you), that's okay because that is not what it's really about. It's about family and friends and tribal morality and the choices we make or don't make and how they affect our lives. The friendships and familial relationships are as important as the romances. Strong writing, strong acting, wonderful characters, gorgeous cast. Give it a shot!

Just wanted to second this recommendation. :D Seriously, it's more about family than vampires. Every main character has at least one strong family tie. Everyone is someone's brother/sister/daughter/son/mother/father. Just so refreshing. And about history being doomed to repeat itself unless we change our ways...oh the themes are fantastic. :)

Such a great show!!!

And I third this recommendation. Please don't miss this show anyone. You'll be missing a lifestyle and a opportunity to make a lots of friends all around the world !!

I will admit, I never bothered with this at first because I just rolled my eyes and thought Oh God, not another Twilight. My friend convinced me to give it a go and now I am more obsessed with it than she is.

I don't think there is a character that I won't/ haven't had tears over when something has happened to them.

And I will totally second this rec for the pretty that will fill your screen, they are all gorgeous :)

Haha, that's exactly what I tell people - if you can make it to episode 5, you'll be hooked.

Okay, I've decided to give it a second try...I'm not HOOKED yet, but I'm on Episode 4 and willing to keep watching.
Arabian: Damon04arabian on October 19th, 2011 01:14 am (UTC)
Yay! Episode 04 is when it started to turn for me. I didn't start to get hooked though till ep 7-9. :)

Ah, this explains why my sister and niece are watching it. I went over to their house just yesterday and my niece was begging to watch it after she finishes her homework. I thought they rented but I know my sister and niece are Instant stream lovers so yeah haha. My niece loves it and my sister is still getting the hang of it. The only highlight my sister finds of the show right now is Damon. hehe. In her words "SO FREAKING GORGEOUS AND HOT." haha. I always talked about it with them and now they are watching it. *smirk*
