The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 19 recap Sorry, okay, but of all the things that this show does well, that delight me, I am least interested in the ongoing trials of our seniors in high school. Seriously, as though any of them were ever going to graduate anyway at this point? But on a serious note, it bothers me because, as we saw tonight, we’ve finally crossed the threshold where the “petty, teenage” concerns are just irrelevant,  seeing as saving the life of a given human is just all in a night’s work for Matt, the most “average” of them all. Full Story

The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 18 recap Please shut up, Caroline. Please. Now that we’ve covered that entire storyline, this was kind of a super-fun episode.   One of the things I like best about when Katherine and Elena face off – whether Elena’s in humanity mode, human mode, or none of the above – is that it makes her up her game. Full Story

The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 17 recap Come on, didn’t you think he was so hot in that sleeveless?  With the more-than-a-hint of eyeliner as he got all 80s soulful with her, and don’t tell me it was supposed to be the 70s, that was 80s Ren McCormick and St. Elmo’s Fire if I ever saw it. Full Story

Underwhelmed If That’s A Word

The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 16 recap Well, that was less than I expected.   Am I wrong? After watching Elena’s pain overwhelm her, then her badass walk out of the house she decided to torch, I thought the turning off of her feelings would mean she was unfeeling, but not necessarily numb to the point of …boredom. Full Story

The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 14 recap This was not the easiest episode of The Vampire Diaries to watch – I mean technically. I’m on West Coast time, the streaming was difficult in the hotel, no matter which site I’m used to going to I’m geoblocked somewhere. It was worth it. Full Story

“I will live a happy life without you”, he lied

The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 14 recap It took damn long enough!  Seriously, this episode, with the wandering and the moaning, and one person after another discovering that in fact there was only cure enough for one person, was kind of exhausting, wasn’t it? I mean, we get it already, and nobody’s relationships really changed, did they?    That’s not entirely true, I suppose. Full Story

The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 13 recap Not only was I not the only one who was thinking it, I have to believe it was where the whole idea came from, right? “Guys, how are we going to do this whole ‘nobody trusts anyone’ thing this week?” “Dump ‘em on a beach! Somerhalder on a beach! It’s flashbacks right there! I miss LOST!” It is indeed flashbacks, though Damon is way more interesting to watch than Boone, even when he’s doing nothing. Full Story

How Have I Not Made A “Run for the Cure” Joke Yet?

The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 12 recap “Dad ,There’s A Dance Tonight! “Not Anymore” I mean, these words made me really hope this was going to be a Footloose tribute – and you did too, what with the 80s music taking you back. What we got instead was a little more directly murderous on Elena’s part, but I mean, the sentiment is the same, right? Good girl has way more chutzpah than we bargained for? And the pure of heart get to have their pride at the dance, even if they don’t get the guy? (Can’t you just see Rebecca screaming “No! What about prom?” I now need to see that before I can successfully die happy. Full Story

The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 11 recap Guess whose PVR cut out right as (MAJOR SPOILER) Jeremy shot Damon in the heart? Obviously I found a way to work around it, because otherwise I wouldn’t have the charming title for this blog above but it kind of bugged me for a different reason. Full Story

The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 10 Remember how on the old, politically incorrect Scooby-Doo, no matter who actually screwed up, they would blame Daphne? I wasted serious time this morning trying to find the catchphrase they said but to no avail, so if you remember, you’ll make my weekend. Full Story

The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 9 recap I love Christmas.  I do, I’m that person.   I don’t go crazy, but I am one of those people who overspends on the “perfect” gift and prays that UPS gets their sh*t together (please, UPS) then wraps everything like a magazine and I get really excited to watch the same movie we’ve watched every year. Full Story
