I loved it!!!!! And i love true blood also but VD books came out BEFORE Sookie Stackhouse and twilight.

I saw it and I loved it. I’m not a huge twilight fan, but this was ten times better! It had interesting plotlines, likeable main characters and a clear protaganist/antaganist.

The books were horrible. The show is a little bit better.

Twilight and True Blood are way better.

it was really good.. surprisingly .. too bad it’s going to be compared to True Blood and Twilight for eternity..considering VD came out wayyy before

True Blood series finale!? Please say typo and it’s season finale only!

This is merely a true blood rip-off.

The show was really disappointing and boring. I tried to watch it until the end, but just couldn’t.

I enjoyed the pilot more than I did the book. The first book didn’t really catch my interest to read the rest, although I may try again. Everyone needs to stop saying it’s a ripoff and copycat considering LJ Smith wrote these books in the 90s. However, CW did definitely jump the bandwagon on the vampire craze. I think the show will get more interesting once they start revealing Damon and Stefan’s past with Katherine.

I really loved it.. once I got passed the differences between the books and the series.. I can’t wait for next thursday

It was just an okay show. Won’t be watching next week since I work, I’m fine with only seeing it every other week. I see it only lasting one season and then will be canceled. Now Blood Ties and Blade the Series, those were good shows that were ended before their time.

I think the books are better or they shall reveal themselves to be better.

luv it!!!! not as much as twilight saga but luv it!!! itz lyk twilight saga then vampire diaries rite unde by lyk 1point they wuld b equal in my book will so tottaly watch nxt week!!!!! i lyk almost n e thing that got 2 du wit vampires!

i liked it, but it was wayyyy too much of a copy of Twilight

I actually really enjoyed the pilot! It was a lot better than I thought it would be.

And people need to stop saying it’s a rip off of Twilight and True Blood. The Vampire Diaries were written in the 90s!

It was pretty good, we shall see what happens next week. Usually ratings falter after the first week. The music was awesome too!

I loved it. I’ve read all the books and just hope it follows that. I’m a big fan of vampires so of course I will tune in next week

I loved it and will be watching next week….To me this pilot is what I wished Twilight could’ve been but wasn’t because of the bad acting and lack of chemistry between the main characters. I can see how VD is similar to Twilight in some ways but I really don’t see comparisons with True Blood which is a good show but i think it’s different in many ways, dont watch it though because its too graphic for my taste. I was really impressed with Paul Wesley, I didn’t think id like him but he was great as Stefan, loved him. Nina and Ian were really good too and I like the storyline w/ the brothers. I’ll definitely be watching and after Supernatural this will be the other show I watch on CW because the rest of the shows they have(gossip girl, 90210, Melrose Place etc are really bad)..

Well Vampire Diaries was written before Twilight and True Blood isn’t even based on a book. It’s just this story became a show due to the stupid vampire phenomenon. But anyway, it was the original before Buffy and the others I listed.

@she shall remain nameless:

True Blood is based on a book series.


yes , Dead Until Dark. I havent read them but I love True Blood. Vampire Dairies books sucked though.
Twilight books were SO SO SO much better then the movie.

It SUCK!!!! It totally copied Twilight. Some scene were TOO FAKE!!! It just wasted my time!! Twilight is WAY BETTER!!!!

if you are too busy to watch it or had thoughts about how cliched some scenes were:

ok eww i dont like this shhow i love twilight and true blood this show sux

why do people always have to be hating. like the show just started, give it a chance! i thought it was pretty good and im deff gonna keep watching it. what is there not to like? oh because it’s not like twlight or true blood? like i dont see why people are comapring it to twilight, its nothing like it and every vampire show has its own story and i think the cast is great and stefan is hot, i dont see who else couldve played him and who cares if elena is not a blonde, its better to have an actress with brown hair that can act instead of a blonde who cant.

I saw some of was boring and a twilight rip off
