The Vampire Diaries - Season 2 [DVD] [2011]
The Vampire Diaries - Season 2 [DVD] [2011]
Dvd ~ Nina Dobrev
Price: £9.78

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Quality and Price., 25 Nov 2012

I couldn't find this DVD for a better price anywhere and was pleased as always by the service amazon provided.

This season of the vampire diaries explores the character of the elusive Katherine, along with the further development of the love triangle established fully at the end of last season. Nina Dobrev is both beautiful and convincing as she plays two characters completely differently on screen, sometimes against one another. I'm sure it's not an easy feat to create the sense of two people, that can be distinguished by the viewer without mention of names. The rest of the Cast, especially Paul Wesley and Candice Accola, also show real skill as their characters develop.
With more legends, attractive monsters and romantic interests, this is every bit as addictive as season 1. I didn't feel the script let me down as much as I might expect from a second season and at some points, it even capped season 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Watch., 25 Nov 2012

We know it's a romantic comedy and we know what the ending will be. But the witty rapport between the two mains, as well as the addition of some great characters from Woody Allen and Patricia Clarkson, is what makes this film great. A well written script created the anti-flick, making fun of the traditional film that we are all used to seeing and providing moments of shared laughter between director and the viewers through previously laboured points.
Is it going to win awards at Cannes? Of course not. But it will lighten up an evening after a long day at work and is still just as funny the second (and third and fourth ashamedly) times you see it.

I couldn't find this DVD cheaper on another site and was pleased to be able to buy the full box set for this amount.

This season is yet more of the attractive vampire diaries cast, with a few new additions and, of course, more legends to uncover. This season explores the origin of vampires, while the evolution of the love triangle between the three main characters continues. New relationships are formed elsewhere too, along with the development of characters in the plot.
I feel it was at points a step up from season 2 and will be excited to see where this goes into season 4. Gripping and addictive as always.
