Vampire Diaries pilot reviewed by the Vampire Nerd

The Vampire Nerd writes up a pretty slick review of the Vampire Diaries after reading the script…

CW plans to cash in on vampire craze with new show “Vampire Diaries”

When my contact in Los Angeles first informed me that the CW has a new vampire-themed show in the works titled “Vampire Diaries”, my first thought was “stake me now; another vampire show? How many copy-cat creations based on the themes of Twilight and True Blood can they possibly invent?”

Then I read the script.

My prediction: This show is going to be sick. Not like cough cough bad sick, like crazy cool insanely awesome kind of sick.

  1. How can vampire diaries copy the theme of true blood and twilight when vampire diaries was published first(the first four books where published in 1992)? So if anything twilight and true blood are copying vampire diaries!

  2. i think that its cool that u guys r actually gona make a show of the books and its sad how these girls can’t just b thankfull that your gona make a show and if their talkin about twilight by stephenie meyer goin by the book well den who cares cuz the movie was SHIT!!!
    just try 2 make it good and um i think elena should hav blond hair maybe u can make the actress u guys picked wear a wig and blue contacts…im just sayin but if not den i won’t complain.

  3. Twilight is a terrible copy of Vampire Diaries…. L.J. Smith should sue Stephenie Meyer for every cent she can get… (and maybe even Joss Whedon should get in on it too) Teen Vamp.. falling in love with a normal girl… One is new to the school district.. Teen Vamp tries to stay away from girl… Can’t.. Feels overwhelming need to keep her safe… Werewolf doesn’t like vamp… The Stephenie Meyer copy combined Tyler and Damon.. It’s sad.. No one has an original thought anymore!!!! I gave up a long long time ago…

  4. wait…why is Elena going to have a little brother(jeremy gilbert)? doesnt she have a little sister?

    BTW Stephenie Meyer did NOT copy ‘TVD’! Her story is…different. Meyer’s story revovles around this helpless girl with this mad addiction to a vampire (it’s very romance-y…not so much vampire/killing/blood sort of thing), when in ‘TVD’ it has more action/fighting/danger and is way more intense… plus Elena is a fighter when Bella is a weakling. And the style of vampire Meyer uses is not the classic type…not anything alike from LJ Smiths. SOOO…Meyer shouldnt get sued for every cent she got! She created her own story…just because its another vampire story it doesnt mean she stole the idea from Smith! Read carefully and stop judging. you got it? Have you ever thought of where Smith may have gotten her ideas….or where her dreams concieved the idea of vampires? or why she even thought of writing a third trilogy(The Return) (exactly when the vampire craze hit again)? yeah, i didnt think so.
    Get your facts straight people!

  5. twilight was awesome and it wasn’topying anyone, becuz in wat other vampire books do vampires have VENOM that turns pple into vampires? i didnt read true blood but in vampire diaries they hafta exchange blood then DIE 4 ppl 2 turn into vamps. also, it came to stephenie meyer in a dream, and u can’t copy ppls dreamd, can u? but yeah, the twilight movie wasnt that good but books r always betta then movies.
    thats y im sure this show is gunna be TERRIBLE. hoensetsly, bonnie is supposed 2 b a redhead! damon & stefn r supposed 2 b HOTT! ive never seen anyone so ugly. hoenstly, the director shoulda at least EREAD the book b4 he/she picked the cast cuz the only ppl that look the part r caroline and matt.

  6. I am reading the vampire diaries right now and I cannot even believe how much they are just like twilight. I was a huge twilight fan untill I seen that the Vampire Diaries were published in 1991 and they are just like twilight. I am dissapointed because just about everything about Stefan is Edward and the plot is strangely similiar. Even starting out as a Twilight fan, I do think if I was L.J. Smith was copied.

  7. OMG, you guys, Vampire Diaries is NOTHING like Twilight! The only thing the same is the vampires- and even then they are different! Did Stephanie steal the idea of sparkling in the sun?

    No. Because they don’t in TVD. They die in the sun.

    And did you read anything about Bella dying and coming back as a spirit, or Elena having a half-vamp baby?

    No. Because the plots are different.

    If you want to say she should sue every book that came after her’s where a 200-year-old vamp falls in love with a helpless teenage girl, she would earn lots of money because there are alot of books like that. There were books that came before her like that, too. Do they sue people over it? No, they don’t.

    Also, the werewolves had basically nothing to do with TVD except to throw in some extra danger. In Twilight, it’s a huge thing if you read the whole series. They’re nothing alike. She did not steal the plot. Tyler doesn’t like Stefan because he tried to kill him. Jacob doesn’t like Edward because Bella loves Edward instead of him.

    TVD is an awesome series. Twilight is an awesome series. They have nothing in common with each other except for the vamps existing.

    And I’m sorry, but the Twilight movie did not live up to my expectations because I had already read the book. They will probably mess up TVD books in the show, too. But it will most likely be a good show for those who didn’t read the books, like Twilight was for those who didn’t read it.

    But THEY ARE NOT THE SAME PLOT.

  8. okk i think theyy could of did alot better with the freakn cast dont get me wrong…. mia from degrassi is awesome but it dosent fit elena!!!!!!!!!! I WAS THINKING THAT DAMON WAS GOING TO BE HOT!!!!! BUT EWWW!! AND SEFAN IS CUTE! BUT I THINK KELLLAN LUTZ WHOULD BE GREAT OR THAT DUDE KYLE FROM KYLE XY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. OK now ik that the 2 books are similar but please… there is also A LOT different. So dont accuse my favorite books or my next comment will be very angry.

  10. The show was awsome!!!!!! Gonna pick up the books tomorrow. This is wayyyyyyyy better than twilight. keep up the good work.

  11. I think TVD and Twilight are very similar. Is it possible for two people to think the same ideas? Yes. I don’t think Stephenie Meyer would have made it this far if she really did steal from Smith’s plotline. On the otherhand, Meyer could have very well read TVD and been inspired. And she says Edward and Bella came to her in a dream? How do you prove that??

    Either way, both authors have had enormous success. I’m just thankful TVD is on tv right now to hold me over until New Moon premieres.

  12. ok. im a huge vampire fan… not just twilight or vampire diaries (altho i am a fan) and yes they are similiar but come on… if you cant read the books and pick up on the differences and just enjoy the stories then you’re not true vampire fans! ive read the twilight series, the marked series, the vampire diaries series, and just started on the blue blood series. not to mention nora roberts vampire trilogy she has out or anne rice’s vampires book that were published way long ago!! and they all have similarities!! hello!!… they are all about vampires… theres bound to be similiar things in all of them! so just chill and enjoy them or dont read them! and and ps: if you’ve read the vampire diaries and are now watching the show (which i love) you’ll notice they arent really sticking to the book… which is fine with me cuz its just another vampire story! something i havent read or watched b4! :D
    sincerely,
    a vamp fanatic

  13. to Heather – it is not true that all vampire stories are bound to have similarities (besides the fact that they all contain vampires and blood of course :P ). take for example Let the Right One In (that was recently filmed)! it too has romance between a vampire and a person, and it’s NOTHING like those!

  14. Ok Love This Series! Amazing! and theres a poster for the show where nina is in a long purple dress and the guys are next to her as usual lol both wearing something purple. can anyone tell me where i can get this dress?? would love to wear something like it for my leavers day/prom :)

  15. Stephenie meyer is a shameless, talentless liar. She completely stole the plotline from Vampire Diaries, even DIRECTLY copying some of the text. She hasn’t got an original thought in her stupid simpering head. She ripped off L.J. Smith and then decided to tell everyone it ‘came to her in a dream.’ Who does she think she is, the virgin mary? Aside from her books being terribly written, they send out a destructive message to teenage girls that its perfectly fine for boys they barely know to creep into their room at night, follow them 24/7, and take the engine out of their car to stop them seeing any other boys.

    Sure, it’s possible for two people to have vaguely similar ideas, but to anyone who’s read the books it’s blindingly obvious that stephenie liar simply rewrote the vampire diaries and attempted to pass it off as her own. She’s so stupid she didn’t even think she’d get caught. Karma’s a b***h though. She’ll get what’s coming to her.

  16. COME ON THIS IS SO SIMILIAR!! THE WARS OF THE SOUTH? READING MINDS BUT NOT “BELLAS OR ELANA’S” ELENA BEING A HALF VAMP INSTEAD OF BIRTHG ONE…. DRINKING VENOM? GOING TO THE COOL DANCE WITH THE VAMPIRE? BEING ABLE TO GO IN THE SUN BUT WITH DIFF OUTCOMES ONE NEEDS A RING ONE DONT. BEING INCREADIBLY FAST NOT SLEEPING EVER? Just Myers changed a few things, I bet she was readng this book before going to bed… boom had a dream, then had to grow off of it… SHE DIDN’T WANT THE OTHERS TO BECOME A BOOK BUT THEN THE FANS WANTED MORE… YEAH SHE’D HAVE TO CHANGE SOME THINGS, OR SHE’D BE SUED… BUT THE BASICS ARE THERE THEN SHE ALSO BASED FROM WITHERING HEIGHTS, AND OTHERS…. SHE’S BEEN SUED TWICE FOR PLAGERISM, COME ON, NOT A CONISCIDENCE… IM A FAN BUT FOR THE MESSAGE TO BE, GIVE UP ALL HOPE AND BE WITH A GUY FOREVER?? WHAT ABOUT A JOB, HER FAMILY? NO… SHE WANTS AN EMOTIONALLY ABUSIVE VAMPIRE, AKA SOMEONE WHO LEACHES OFF OF HER!! AND SHE FEELS THE NEED TO FEEL THAT SHE’S NOT WORTHY?? IT’S A BAD MESSAG I JUST THINK THAT STEPHENIE SHOULD STICKTO WRITING SCREENPLAYS HER WRITING IS TERRIBLE SHE OVER-DESCRIBES STUFF IT GETS ANNOYING AND FOR BELLA TO BE SO SMART AND INTUITIVE THEN NOT BE ABLE TO FIGURE OUT THE BASICS, IS ANNOYING!!

  17. did stephanie meyer write something before twilight? obviously she ready Vampire diaries and copied the idea.
