The Vampire Diaries (Thursdays 8/7 Central)

The people at the CW network must think they’ve hit the jackpot, or at least hold the winning lottery ticket. Cashing in on teen girls’ current vampire craze (Twilight etc.), The Vampire Diaries would seem to have the markings of a hit for the fall season. Based on a series of young-adult novels from the ‘90s, the show has all the ingredients that would seem to add up to a teen sensations: high school cliques, sibling rivalry, adolescent angst, drugs, family trauma, and of course, the aforementioned undead. Add in that it’s written by Scream scribe and Dawson’s Creek mastermind Kevin Williamson, and you’ve got what would seem like a sure thing.

But even if they’re vampires, high schoolers aren’t generally that interesting to anyone but themselves, which puts the show at a disadvantage. Granted, there’s some attempts to convey real emotion, but despite the amount of meat in the pilotindicating that there’s plenty to explore over the course of a seasonThe Vampire Diaries displays only faint signs of having any life in it.

Okay, so there’s been an overload of vampires. 1st, Twilight, then Jennifer’s Body and blah blah blah.. but Vampire Diaries is different, and definitely here to stay.
