Vampire Diaries are on here in Germany… I know a little late since the series started in the US in September, but we’re grateful that it’s on now. So I used my chance to watch the first episodes… And I have to admit I liked it. Of course, one can clearly see that the main idea was taken from the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer, but still it’s nice entertainment for watching tv.
And with Paul Wesley they got a really good looking hunk for leading male role! I’d prefer him to Robert Pattinson, definitely ;-). Searching for information I found out that also the Vampire Diaries are based on books.
My opinion?! Twilight is much more romantic, while the Vampire Diaries are more like real life, tougher and much more cruel in some ways (with all those murders). The actors are even, while the main male lead is better in Vampire Diaries, Twilight has its wolf pack – an absolute plus :-). I’ll continue watching both vampire stories… but please, don’t ask me what makes them so appealing.
