While I know I’m late in the game to watch this show, thanks to the Black Friday sales a couple weeks ago I picked up the first two seasons of The Vampire Diaries for about $18 each. I started watching the series yesterday and am still just going through season 1, but the swoon-worthy potential was there right from the first episode. (So please BE CAREFUL about posting anything that’s spoilery!)
It’s funny, I never thought Boone on Lost was particularly cute, but Ian Somerhalder as Damon is delicious. While I usually like the bad boy characters, the good cop/bad cop dynamic that Stefan & Damon have really plays well off each other. Even with their constant rivalry, they still have each other’s backs when it comes down to it.
The episode I’m most looking forward to seeing is the one that explains how Damon got the way he is. From the flashback episodes, it shows the two brothers were the best of friends. I can’t wait to find out what happened to make him so jaded… showing the vulnerability within a bad boy.
Between Stefan’s levelheaded sincerity and Damon’s sarcastic quips, these two definitely make the show what it is. Admittedly I’m still fairly fresh into the series, and forgoing some of the cheesiness and suspension of disbelief, I’m nonetheless hooked. I wish I had more to say about this swoon-worthy duo but short of having a whole post just gushing about the eye candy, I’ll leave it off here for now with one of my fave swoon-worthy shots of the show so far until I’m further into the series to find the next fave. 😉
Are you Team Stefan or Team Damon? 😉
