Small Disclosure

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.

And to tell the truth, Damon (played by Ian Somerhalder) is not all that bad. Deep down he is a love sick fool and he has killed the most people out of anyone else on the show in his quest for true love.

We didn’t start watching The Vampire Diaries until a few months ago. Robin and I have had some epic Netflix marathons of this show over the past few months and were happy to hear that The Vampire Diaries: The Complete Sixth Season is available on DVD.  It’s got a hilarious gag reel and some great special features on there.

Synopsis:

The Vampire Diaries continues its sixth season with more delicious drama to sink your teeth into. In season five, after a passionate summer with Damon, Elena headed to Whitmore College with Caroline, not knowing Bonnie sacrificed her life for Jeremy’s. Meanwhile, Stefan and Caroline’s friendship deepened as they stood up to the Travelers, a nomadic witch tribe driven to strip Mystic Falls of magic and cast out its supernatural residents. In the shocking season finale, Damon, fearing he would lose his loved ones on the crumbling Other Side, made a huge sacrifice to bring them all back — with catastrophic and heartbreaking results. Season six follows the characters’ journey back to each other as they explore the duality of good versus evil inside themselves. Matt Davis reprises his role as Alaric Saltzman, recently returned from The Other Side. Plus, the season will make you misty-eyed as the departure of a major character will turn lives upside down and leave us asking what happened to Mystic Falls.

Like I said, the new season premiers in a few weeks on the WB, so make sure you check out The Vampire Diaries: The Complete Sixth Season so that you’re all caught up!  Own it on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital HD today!

  9. I always watch the first three episodes of a new show, and I did so with this one, but for some reason it didn’t hold me and I stopped watching it. I thought that one of the vampires looked exactly like Rob Lowe when he was that age though. 🙂
