Advance review of The Vampire Diaries: The Complete First Season DVD

Review by Craig Byrne – Webmaster

The Vampire Diaries Season 1 will be available on DVD and Blu-ray on August 31 (only two weeks away!), and thanks to Warner Home Video, we’ve been able to take an advance look at the set, which collects the 22 episodes of the show’s first season. This review will be split into sections, and hopefully will be in-depth enough for those of you who just can’t wait for the end of the month.

Packaging/Design: The first thing you’ll notice with any DVD set is the packaging, right? Well… the first thing I noticed here was how thin the packaging for this season set is. It’s much slimmer than comparative sets forSmallville and Supernatural and about 1/4 the size of the X-Files DVD sets of old. Just because it takes up less space, though, doesn’t mean it’s packaged in a way that is inferior. Discs do not overlap each other and are easy to get out.

Individual disc art isn’t as cool as what we had with something like Smallville, nor are there any fancy menus, really… most title screens look like the front cover. The time not spent on disc art, however, is better spent on extras, which I’ll get to in a moment.

When you slide out the set, there’s a photo of Ian, Nina, and Paul on the back cover.

Nina Dobrev’s panel:

Q: Stefan or Damon?
N: Defan – the other brother.

Q: You were in The American Mall…
N: It was a musical movie, it was really crazy. It was three weeks of singing and dancing. Really fun!

Q: Do you like the flashbacks on The Vampire Diaries?
N: They’re my favourite! It’s a rare opportunity to find a cool character that you love. Somebody dresses me – it’s like Halloween. Lots of fun.
