The Vampire Diaries “Katerina”

“Katerina” celebrated “Take Nina Dobrev to Work Day,” as she handled about more than half of the screen time (much of it talking to herself) all on her own. First, who sat out this episode: Alaric (except in previews), Tyler, Jenna, Matt, and Liz.

The DNR List: DVR’s Must-Save Episodes

Everybody who uses a DVR has to have them, right? Those episodes you just can’t get rid of because you want to watch them over and over again? Please don’t say it’s just us. Instead of negative news like unfair cancellations and those shows that have become so unbearable we’re […]

Moment of Goodness: Damon Tells Elena He Loves Her on The Vampire Diaries “Rose”

Heather M. does a wonderful job touching on the subject of this Moment of Goodness in her awesome recap, but it was so amazing I wanted to feature it on its own. Before I go into it, I first have to bring up a stellar scene that preceded it because […]

The Vampire Diaries “Rose”

Holy crap with the longing looks. We have some interesting pair-offs this week. First: no Matt, Jenna, Alaric, Katherine or Liz tonight. Aimee is still “missing.” Sarah is still dead. The basic gist of the hour is that Elena has been kidnapped (again) and Team Scooby (Bonnie, Jeremy, Stefan, and […]

The Vampire Diaries “Masquerade”

Okay, I’m not going to be popular, but I didn’t love this episode, mainly because at the end of the way overlong buildup, Katherine is still alive. There was plenty of momentum in trying to get her dead, in a charming Team Scooby-esque (Damon/Stefan/Alaric/Bonnie/Caroline/Jeremy) sort of way, but in the end, […]

Ogres, vampires and zombies, oh my! We’re in the midst of Halloween Week and primetime television just loves to celebrate this spook-tacular holiday. Here’s Part 2 of the TV Goodness preview that highlights Halloween-themed specials and episodes starting with Thursday night programming.

The Vampire Diaries “Plan B”

I imagine the employment agreement to work on TVD is a hysterical set of pages “Welcome! You will be employed for an indeterminate number of episodes, during which time you may be beaten, stabbed, flogged, shot or eaten. There’s also a possibility you may get to roll around with Nina […]

The Vampire Diaries “Kill or Be Killed”

OK, y’all. Apologies for being tardy, but there was A LOT to process this week. I’m going to review it a little bit differently, because while the scene-by-scene is awesome, it was the little OMG moments that made this episode amazing. Please forgive me if you were looking for specific […]

The Vampire Diaries “Memory Lane”

Okay then. So Katherine is still a duplicitous bitch, Caroline is a conflicted vampire, Mason is a conflicted werewolf, Damon is hellbent on avenging somebody for something, and Elena and Stefan are ahead of the game. No Matty or Bonnie or Jeremy this week; FYI, in case that’s where your […]

The Vampire Diaries “Brave New World”

Sweet Caroline. She well and truly vamped this evening, following Katherine’s big FU “game on” smothering-by-pillow. “Brave New World,” written by Brian Young (“Isobel,”, “Let the Right One In,” and others), was directed by John Dahl (Red Rock West, The Last Seduction, and for TVD, “Friday Night Bites”), and his […]
