Channel Surfing admits to being a few years (ahem) beyond the target demographic of CW’s “The Vampire Diaries,” but we still enjoy a good guilty pleasure.
In last Thursday’s episode, the series offered a flashback where teacher Alaric Saltzman (Matthew Davis) is talking to his wife Isobel (Mia Kirshner) about her paranormal research. She’s deduced that Mystic Falls had vampires in it. He’s skeptical.
“You’re like Mulder, except hotter, and a girl,” Alaric says.
As she goes back to work, she responds: “Mulder was right in the end.”

Last night “The Vampire Diaries” returned after a month-long hiatus with one of its best episodes ever. “A Few Good Men” ticked all the boxes, and only furthered my belief that this is the best show on TV you’re not watching. And my adoration only has a little bit to do with that picture above.
On the surface, “Diaries” is a spooky, supernatural thriller with whip smart dialogue and a sense of realism you don’t often find in a sci-fi series. And I believe that’s because creators Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec don’t see their show as belonging to one genre or another. Whenever the characters approach the threshold of being too romantic, too comedic, too scary or too dramatic, the show veers quickly and precisely, like a trained drunk driver.
Last night’s episode alone had me swooning (aforementioned picture), laughing (welcome Melinda Clarke), screaming (Damon vs. Alaric) and dying for next week’s episode thanks to a bloody good final reveal.
I suspect that Kevin and Julie are just getting started as well — they’ve barely begun to pull back the curtain on this small town’s mysterious history and inhabitants. Personally, I can’t wait for the next tug on the drawstrings!
Returning with new episodes, the CW’s Vampire Diaries scored a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating, that’s the same as its last new episode (2/11). Vampire Diaries was down 8% to a 2.2 rating in the CW target women 18-34 demo.
