The Vampire Diaries is a heartbreaking tale of love and loss, and can teach a lot about life at the same time. I've learned from this, that I should never take anyone whom I care about for granted.
The plot is incredible, not something I would usually consider interesting or even take the time to watch, who really wants to watch a show made up of super-natural beings? It just didn't make sense to me, until I watched The Vampire Diaries. There isn't many negative things anyone can say about this show, other than the fact Nina Dobrev's irritatingly preppy character, Elena Gillbert, is the most annoying person I've laid eyes on. Her constant love triangle with the Salvatore brothers, Stefan and Damon, is enough to send anyone insane and personally I think they should both run along without a care in the world for Elena.
This programme is so interestingly relatable to many teenage girls worldwide that it can't come as a shock that so many people tune in weekly to see what goes on next. Elena is such an ordinary character that it's understandable why so many people can relate themselves and their daily situations to her, and that is one of the main reasons why I am so in love with this show.
There is always something new happening in the small country town of Mystic Falls, and no episode is ever uninteresting. I managed to convince my friends (who bloody hate things like this) to sit through an episode with me, and they were both glued to the screen not checking social media once.
I highly recommend The Vampire Diaries if you're willing to give up your social life to watch it because honestly it will consume you.
