Masshole Mommy and I really enjoy sitting down in the evenings after the kids are in bed and watching some tv together. Being the patient husband that I am, I put up with her shows (Dancing with the Stars and American Idol), but there is one show that we both really like and enjoy equally.
The Vampire Diaries.
If you keep up with the show, you know that they are going to start airing the 7th season next month & Masshole Mommy and I are definitely ready.
The Vampire Diaries is a really great show. It has everything for for both women and men. I will briefly talk about the female aspect- Six words: Damon, Stephan and Elena love triangle. Blah, blah, etc, etc.
Now I will talk about why guys will like it. There is fighting, blood and guts, double crossing and lots of back stabbing. Then there is Katherine, the sex craving “bad girl” vampire, who literally does not care who she hurts to get what she wants. Oh and then there is my personal favorite <3 Caroline. She is the blond bombshell that keeps everyone else on the show in line. There are werewolfs and witches that work together or betray each other- depending on the day. You never know what is going to happen and who is going to kill who.
The story-line goes back a thousand years with flash backs to different time periods like the middle ages and the roaring 1920’s along the way. I love that the vampires have super strength, speed and my personal favorite compulsion (think of it like hypnotizing someone). There are epic battles between the sides with people switching sides on a whim.
