I am afraid to say that I have stopped watching The Vampire Diaries ... and even Ian Somerhalder great abs won't make me change my mind. I used to love the show, and we had the pleasure to photograph and put on the cover of Bello Mag two of their actors, Michael Trevino (BelloMag #23) and Steven R. McQueen (BelloMag #31).
But for some reasons, the magic of vampires-werewolfs-witches is not there anymore for me. We had 4 or 5 episodes on the DVR and after 20 minutes into the first episode I found myself texting on my phone (now it may not be surprising to some as it became cultural to be on the phone 24/7) but those who know me would tell you that it means something is wrong.
Anyway I think after I've heard "we have to kill the originals" ... "but you can't kill an original" ... "I know but I found some need magic wood" and Elena Gilbert (or was it Katerina Petrova!? I don't even remember if she is dead or alive) say 2 or 3 times to Damon Salvatore "I have feelings for you" (or maybe she said that to Stefan) or maybe she said "I cannot love you anymore" or something close ... I think I rolled my eyes and just gave up ... I know it's sad I used to love this show :-(
I also know there are ups and downs in every series, Desperate Housewives was up and down for seasons before going down, like all the way down a couple of years ago, The Walking Dead is one of my favorites but this second season had some pretty boring periods (the farm-gun thing almost killed me) right now I am really enjoying Game of Thrones (some of the stories) I love the Daenerys and her baby dragons story, King Joeffrey is an absolute nightmare (in a good way ... so well casted and play) the new gay king is another interesting story but for the pas couple episodes I feel like I am still waiting for this bloody winter to come ... I did loved Ringer (even if the pilot was not the best production I ever seen. I remember laughing at the boat scene) but the rest of the season was really cool, I think Sarah Michelle Gellar plays a big part in the success of this show.
So yes, maybe I should have tried harder with The Vampire Diaries ... but you know what I am fine with just a couple of images of the actors shirtless once in a while!
