The Vampire Diaries First Season Report Card: A+

The television season may be over, but that doesn’t mean the time to offer up critiques on various shows, characters and actors is finished.

As we head into the summer, TV Fanatic will be grading and reviewing a number of the small screen’s biggest hits. First up: The Vampire Diaries.

What did we think of its first season? Who was its best character? Where do we hope it goes next year? Read on. Fine out. Chime in.

Best Character: Damon Salvatore. This will likely be the easiest choice we make on any show’s evaluation. Ian Somerhalder simply owned this role, having a blast with Damon’s snarky, sarcastic side – but deftly transitioning to serious and vulnerable when called for. Emmy voters will never even look at a CW show, but they should make an exception in this case.

Worst character: Caroline. This is more by default by anything. We had to choose someone. Caroline is nice and pretty, but she isn’t a vampire. She isn’t a werewolf. She’s sort of just eye candy for male viewers, which does make me wonder: why am I complaining again?

Best episode: Blood Brothers. This hour took us back to 1864, revealing exactly how Damon and Stefan were turned. It also threw a major, believable twist into the relationship between these brothers. Amazing stuff.

Love You To Death: The Unofficial Companion to The Vampire Diaries

A couple of months ago, I was contacted by Crissy Calhoun, author of “Spotted: Your One and Only Unofficial Guide to Gossip Girl”. She is currently writing a similar book for The Vampire Diaries, “Love You To Death: The Unofficial Companion to The Vampire Diaries” and it will be released in September of 2010. She asked me if I would be willing to answer a few questions about the TVD fandom, and of course, I happily agreed. So keep your eye out for it! And it is already available on Amazon for pre-order, I’m pre-ordering mine today!
