It’s about time to tell you about my favourite tv series: the Vampire Diaries!
The series is set in the fictional town of Mystic Falls, Virginia, a town charged with supernatural history since its settlement of migrants from New England in the late 17th century. The series follows the life of Elena Gilbert, a 17-year-old girl, who falls for a 162-year-old vampire named Stefan Salvatore.
The story line revolves around the other inhabitants of the town, most notably Elena's younger brother Jeremy Gilbert, Elena's best friend Bonnie Bennett (a witch), Elena's close friend Caroline Forbes, Elena's childhood friend Tyler Lockwood and Elena's ex-boyfriend Matt Donovan.
The relationship between Elena and Stefan becomes increasingly complicated as Stefan's vicious and malevolent elder brother Damon returns to Mystic Falls with a plan to wreak havoc on the town and also to plan a vendetta against his younger brother.
Both brothers begin to show affection towards Elena, mainly because of her resemblance to their past love Katherine. It is revealed that Elena, a distant relative of Katherine, is Katherine's doppelganger, who eventually returns with plans against the trio.
The series is based on a novel by Lisa J. Smith, although they didn’t quite stick to the details. But that’s not necessary! The series possesses exactly the right mix of mysticism, romance and uncanniness. And the cast is just perfect.
