Three Clips from the CW’s Vampire Diaries

It’s not easy being a good, decent vampire. Just ask Stefan. He kinda likes this pretty brunette, but there’s that whole wanting to bite her in the neck and drink her blood thing. Then his brother shows up wanting to cause mischief, and it all goes downhill from there. Three video clips from the CW’s new show The Vampire Diaries, which looks like a cross between the “Twilight” franchise and Dawson’s Creek, minus, you know, the creek. And Dawson. Nina Dobrev makes for a decent Katie Holmes, though.

Four months after the tragic car accident that killed their parents, 17-year-old Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev, “DeGrassi: The Next Generation”) and her 15-year-old brother, Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen, “Everwood”) are still trying to cope with their grief and move on with their lives. Elena has always been the star student; beautiful, popular and involved with school and friends, but now she finds herself struggling to hide her sadness from the world.

As the school year begins, Elena and her friends are fascinated by a handsome and mysterious new student, Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley, “Army Wives”). Stefan and Elena are immediately drawn to one another, and Elena has no way of knowing that Stefan is a centuries-old vampire, struggling to live peacefully among humans, while his brother Damon (Ian Somerhalder, “Lost”) is the embodiment of vampire violence and brutality. Now these two vampire brothers ─ one good, one evil ─ are at war for Elena’s soul and for the souls of her friends, family and all the residents of the small town of Mystic Falls, Virginia.

Based on the series of books by L. J. Smith, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is from Alloy Entertainment and Bonanza Productions Inc in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers Kevin Williamson (“Dawson’s Creek,” “I Know What You Did Last Summer”), Julie Plec (“Kyle XY,” “Wasteland”), Leslie Morgenstein (“Gossip Girl,” “Privileged”) and Bob Levy (“Gossip Girl,” “Privileged”). Marcos Siega (“Dexter”) directed the pilot.

The show stars Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Katerina Graham, Kayla Ewell, Sara Canning, Michael Trevino, Steven R. McQueen, and Chris William Martin.

The Vampire Diaries premieres in the Fall on Thursdays with Supernatural on the CW.

    FYI…Vampire Diaries looks to be based on a book series of the same title that was out in the early 1990s.
    It predates Twilight and have been reluctant to see/read Twilight due to wondering if it will be the same as Vampire Diaries. LOL

    • Jade

      it is based on the book

    I have read the series of Vampire Diaries and I somewhat like the tv series that they are doing but they changed wayyy too much. First off, Elena has blonde, not brunette, hair, and the brothers are’nt at war for Elena’s friend’s souls, just her’s. Another thing, Elena does not have a brother, but a little sister that is a little kid.

    • Kylie

      I TOTALLY agree. Look what they did to Gossip Girl! I know thats a bad thing to associate this tv series with and all, but its a good example.
