Vampire Diaries Post Mortem: Graduation

It’s been an interesting—and at times enormously frustrating season. I do not think season four of Vampire Diaries will go down as my favorite, from the uneven storytelling to the overabundance of some characters at the expense of others to the beating of some storylines like a dead horse, there were moments of great cheer and moments of throat clutching disappointment, and when I honestly felt some of my passion for this show wane, my bafflement at the choices seemingly being made often left me with a feeling of “really?” rather than “OMG” at the end of every episode. Thankfully, […]

Vampire Diaries Post Mortem: Break on Through

Unfortunately it’s been three long weeks since our last new episode of The Vampire Diaries and five weeks since I managed to get a post mortem up.  My apologies, in real life, when it rains, it pours.  Fortunately tomorrow night marks the return of our favorite paranormal drama and it’s going to be a mad dash through the final four of the season. Insert wail of denial here.  I hate summer hiatus, it’s long, long, long and I miss my show. But, I digress… So let’s break it down for Break on Through As a fan of the show, I […]
