  1. Loving this season, even without Elena, and possibly even more with her departure given how the remaining characters have to now faceLoving this season, even without Elena, and possibly even more with her departure given how the remaining characters have to now face themselves and one another. It's become more unpredictable & emotionally complex. Movie quality production levels and Freudian mind-benders make for a suspenseful & gripping vamp drama, grown out of what used to be a more popcorn teen-vamp drama. Yes, there's plenty of guilty pleasure eye candy to behold which we love, but it was time to grow and I'm glad to see the writers, directors, actors...whole TVD team taking it to the next level! And loving the interplay with The Originals too! Full Review »

    Its way too long... there's absolutely no reason for it to be a 10 episode series. At max this should be told in 4 tops 5 episodes. The actingIts way too long... there's absolutely no reason for it to be a 10 episode series. At max this should be told in 4 tops 5 episodes. The acting is ofcourse top class but why o why would you want to stretch this thing out so much. And the conclusion is just a lame duck. Full Review »
  4. I was misled it into thinking this was a show based on real characters and events. Not even close. A Mad Men esque soap opera with overwroughtI was misled it into thinking this was a show based on real characters and events. Not even close. A Mad Men esque soap opera with overwrought cliched veneer characters. There is the maverick scientist , the morally conflicted scientist, the mean scientist, proto big bang nerd scientists ,the usual bureaucratic stupid army types, a demonic proto CIA and vapid wifes'. All shot in bloodless sepia to bring us back to the 40's. Apparently there is lots of pointless sex too but I gave up after 2 episodes so I thankfully avoided that. I visited friends in Hiroshima last summer and hope they never get to see this. Not only garbage but insulting Full Review »
  5. This is well made diligently following the movie events but with a twist. Keeps you wanting to watch the next episode. I've not seen season 2This is well made diligently following the movie events but with a twist. Keeps you wanting to watch the next episode. I've not seen season 2 yet which moves the story out of the movie events but so far its good to watch. Full Review »
