Why are our kick-ass heroines too stupid to live (TSTL)?!! First there is Sookie Stackhouse. Now there's Elena Gilbert. Of course you would slap a vampire because.... he could snap your neck like a twig... second, you are bleeding and the vampire in question is having control problems.... third, because you know for a fact that this vampire is the bad one who likes to kill... and, oh yes,... because you have a major case of TSTL??! At least Sookie was blonde, but Elena wasn't! Okey, okey, I bought this box set because I need something to watch while waiting for True Blood Season 4 to become available in the UK... but let me tell you, I had to be really desperate to continue watching this show. I know, I know, there are a lot of Vampire Diaries fans out there and I would probably get stoned with ripe tomatoes here, but... I don't think I'll ever finish watching this dvd box set...
There are good plot lines but Elena's TSTL is annoying!! It took me a month and a half of constant trying to get through the first disc. It took me two days to get through Seasons 1 to 3 dvd box sets of True Blood. You can imagine my frustration with The Vampire Diaries dvd box set! :(
And Nina might be beautiful but she can barely act...
