Oh, I'm totally falling for the show and it's all your fault. I liked it after the Pilot, but the second episode REALLY made me curious as to what will happen next. I'm minutes away from watching the third now. Yay, so excited!

Doesn't Damon remind you of Clark on Red!K every now and then? When I was watching the rooftop scene with him, Stefan and Vicki, I couldn't help but see a bit of TW in every shot of IS. It's amazing. That dangerous, crazy look in the eye, that messed-up-but-totally-hot hair ... it's all there!

I'm actually liking Stefan and Elena together, even though they strongly remind me of Clana. I guess it's not so much them as the writing that's reminding me of SV, but at every turn, I'm pleasantly surprised at how much better the writers seem to be handling this show than they did SV. I mean, SV was special, but it was 8 years ago. That kinda stuff wouldn't fly now.

I like all the supporting characters too, surprisingly enough. Caroline is still my favourite (and yay for you liking her as well now!), I'm dying to know how this Caroline/Damon is going to go, I can't wait to find out more about Bonnie and I really like seeing how they're developing Matt. I was totally expecting him to be Whitney, but he's so not, and that interests me. And Vicki's scenes are hit and miss for me, but I like that she's unwittingly caught in the middle of something she doesn't understand or even remember. It makes everything just that much more dangerous and thrilling.

And everyone's pretty. So, yeah. :D

I'm totally with you on this one ... I hope we stick it through!

Damon does remind me of Red!K Clark, now that you say that! Especially in the way he's liable to do anything, just to amuse himself or satisfy some whim. His behavior inspires the same panicky feeling in the pit of my stomach. But it's even worse with Damon, because you knew the writers would only let Clark go so far, while Damon has no such limitations.

I get the Clana vibe, too, but thank goodness Elena is no Lana. She's not waiting around for someone to save her, she's perfectly capable of saving herself. I like her better all the time. But I have to admit Lana is the yardstick against which I judge her. If she starts talking about secrets and lies, I'm gonna freak. :)

I'm so glad you're watching this show, too! *twirls*
