Vampire Diaries: Here All Week

You've never watched it, but now's your chance to catch up with The CW's new Vampire Diaries: It's smarter than Twilight, cheaper than True Blood, and all 10 episodes produced thus far are running in a five-night marathon, beginning tonight. Courtesy to the viewers, or desperate lack of holiday rerun material? The CW ain't talkin.' ---

The Vampire Diaries has young, sexy vampires (and various other supernatural creatures--all sexy, of course), but the writing and acting won't make anyone over the age/IQ of 14 want to drive a stake through their frontal lobe. The story's not as complex as True Blood (Vampire brothers--one repentant and earnest, the other bad and snarky--battle for the love of a mortal girl. There, we're done), but the dark tone and body count are more adult than Twilight/New Moon.

The ultimate test? I can make it through a whole episode The Vampire Diaries without laughing fits or blood seeping from my brain. Twilight, not so much.

New episodes return in January; here's the Vampire Diaries extended trailer:
