Poor Vampire Diaries. Though the original L.J. Smith books were published back in the early 90′s, the TV series seems doomed to be compared to Twilight and lead-in Supernatural. And yes, that is Lost’s Ian Somerhalder as the bad brother.
Vampire Diaries isn’t the only new genre show we’ll see next fall – ABC has Eastwick based on the Updike book that was last adapted as a 1987 movie, while Fox has the reincarnation drama Past Life. (See the trailers for those at SciFi Wire.) I’m feeling a resounding meh… You?
