Synopsis

They're back – and they're not alone. The seductive characters of The Vampire Diaries return for a stunning 5-Disc 22-Episode Season Two. This time Elena, Stefan, Damon and the other residents of Mystic Falls are joined by sinister new blood. Released from the tomb, Katherine unleashes her personal brand of evil in a diabolical plot. The Originals – the world's oldest and most dangerous vampires – hunt for Elena, who discovers she has a terrifying connection to their world. And now bloodsuckers aren't the only monsters in town. On moonlit nights, werewolves roam in search of victims…including vampires, who succumb to a single werewolf bite. The Vampire Diaries: unending suspense, undying romance.

When I reviewed the first season of this show, I commented that its strength was keeping up the pace while still always serving the longer plot arc. I never felt like an episode was filler, everything always seemed to be moving somewhere and the number of twists and turns kept the ride interestng.

I'm pleased to say Season 2 keeps that up, and it also does a great deal to expand upon on and develop the core characters. I don't want to spoil anything for anybody who hasn't seen it, but Caroline and Tyler in particular have some excellent writing and progression this year. There are some absolutely brilliant new players in town, one of whom (Elijah) has become a great favourite of mine. The core chemistry between the three leads continues to sizzle, and Nina Dobrev in particular does an excellent job inhabiting two entirely different characters. It can be hard to keep up the tension in a triangle without having people get exasperated and "will you pick one and stick to it" but the writers do a good job of keeping things at a simmer without overdoing it. They also take care not to let the Salvatore brothers settle into two dimensional "good guy, bad guy" stereotypes - Damon may be dangerous but he never feels irredeemable, and Stefan may be a nice guy but there are always glimpses of the darker side within. That's important not just to keep the triangle plausible but to stop the whole thing being cliched and dull.

The stakes are raised and the show broadens its mythology, the performances and writing are consistently good... the show is keeping up the good work and hitting new strides without becoming convoluted or taking itself too seriously. Every time I thought someone or something had been too quiet, the next episode all was being revealed and the ongoing mystery kept me sucked in (pun intended). It's still a glossy teen drama, but it's far more than the fluff that such shows get stereotyped as. This is a really enjoyable bit of fantasy.

To start I would like to say that I loved Twilight and was hesitant to watch this when it first appeared on our screens. Certainly the first few episodes weren't exactly captivating but there was something in the dynamic between the characters that kept me watching. If I'm honest, Stefan and Elena's relationship doesn't really do anything for me. It seems merely a hinge for the rest of the show to hang from. Elena and Damon's chemistry however is sizzling! Let's face it, it's all we really tune in for.

The 'will they, won't they' suspense is excellent, if a little dragged out at times but I would also like to say that the 'secondary' characters are actually well fleshed out and the acting is quite good. This show really rely's on these other story lines heavily between bouts of the Elena love triangle and they do the job quite well.

Caroline especially has really developed into someone worth watching in her own right by the second series and is no longer simply a supporting character for the main action. The sucess of this show is largely due to the fact that it is based on the books, which became a cult hit first. I think it is this that kept me watching in the beginning but I must say that the show has not been disappointing in the slightest. (Which can sometimes happen after falling in love with the written version first.) I would actually recommend you to read the books first. The show is much better. So my point summing up is that you can like Twilight AND The Vampire Diaries. I actually don't associate them with each other at all. If you like a bit of fantasy romance, give it a go. I highly doubt you'll be dissapointed.

Back with a vengeance! Mystic Falls is again the setting for the timeless love triangle with its many twists and turns - werewolves and witches thrown into the mix.

Vampire brothers Stefan and Damon (getting on better now, though Damon has lapses) still strive to outwit treacherous former love Katherine, doppelganger nice Elena with her work cut out trying to limit the damage. Adding to problems are Originals, oldest vampires of all. Everybody seems to have secret agendas and ever-changing alliances. Passions abound, as do spectacular deaths (not all of them permanent) and much gory torture (recipients often soon as good as new) .

Although hooked, I worried at finding everything so confusing. What a relief in the bonuses to discover the cast had problems too, they amusingly struggling to explain some of the many involved relationships and other intricacies. For full enjoyment it is best to avoid asking questions like who cleans the brothers' house and why are Mystic Falls residents all so good looking, most seemingly aged between twenty and forty? Instead just sit back and enjoy the ride - fast paced action, charismatic cast, spectacular effects. Enjoy too the bonuses. One interestingly describes how the wolf sequences were perfected. Nina Dobrev is also deservedly praised for so impressively being Katherine and Elena - both roles so different and demanding, yet long scenes together totally convince.

Some viewers may feel Episode 21 would have been a better season ending - its massive confrontation so gripping, the following funerals providing some sort of closure, tantalizing cliffhangers whetting the appetite. In contrast, Episode 22 perhaps seems an anti-climax, rather cobbled together and creaking with contrivances?

Such reservations apart, one cannot deny the series does well what it sets out to do - the result cult viewing, with not only teenagers addicted.
