Petaling Jaya, May 21st, 2010 - There is absolutely no question that the vampire phenomenon has taken off with a tremendous following that has swept up fans from all around the world. The Vampire Diaries has also gained its share of fans, jumping on the dark band wagon and making its way to 8TV this June.
The Vampire Diaries is an American supernatural-fantasy horror series that is based on the book sequence by L. J. Smith. It is guilty pleasure! Despite the fact that the series is made up of a high school pack, it surely has a very adult feel to it with the many complex issues that come up and the dark violent feel that is depicted. The show somehow manages to knit a set of relationships that breathe life into each character.
The story revolves around the young and gorgeous Elena Gilbert who returns to Mystic Falls High School after the tragic death of her parents. Along with her Aunt Jenna, Elena tries to look after her troubled younger brother, Jeremy and struggles to salvage whatever they have left. The first day of school was a struggle for Elena until she bumps into a mysterious new student, Stefan Salvatorem. As Elena get to know the young man, she is comforted knowing that there’s someone who is finally able relate to what she has been going through. What Elena doesn't know is that Stefan is in fact a vampire who is constantly resisting the temptation and urge to taste her blood. The stunning beauty ultimately falls in love with the charming vampire and slowly develops feelings for his malicious older brother Damon as well.
A mix of teen drama and supernatural darkness, The Vampire Diaries take fans on a thrilling journey that involves an excellent combination of setting and plot. Critics agree that the good adaptation of the characters to the story makes the film stronger than any other production of its kind.
Later, at a parent teacher conference, teacher Mr Tanner makes Elena’s Aunt Jenna feel like she is failing miserably as a surrogate parent especially when it comes to Jeremy. Anxious, Elena decides to drop by at the Salvatore’s house to talk to Stefan, but to her surprise she finds his brother Damon there. When Stefan arrives home, Elena is confused and embarrassed by what she had heard from Damon as well as the obvious reaction of Stefan who wasn't at all happy to see her there.
