Synopsis: The Vampire Diaries continues its sixth season with more delicious drama to sink your teeth into. In season five, after a passionate summer with Damon, Elena headed to Whitmore College with Caroline, not knowing Bonnie sacrificed her life for Jeremy's. Meanwhile, Stefan and Caroline's friendship deepened as they stood up to the Travelers, a nomadic witch tribe driven to strip Mystic Falls of magic and cast out its supernatural residents. In the shocking season finale, Damon, fearing he would lose his loved ones on the crumbling Other Side, made a huge sacrifice to bring them all back — with catastrophic and heartbreaking results. Season six follows the characters' journey back to each other as they explore the duality of good versus evil inside themselves. Matt Davis reprises his role as Alaric Saltzman, recently returned from The Other Side. Plus, the season will make you misty-eyed as the departure of a major character will turn lives upside down and leave us asking what happened to Mystic Falls.

Again I find myself jumping into the deep end of an already established horror series I know very little about, this particular vampire melodrama has very little by way of bite for me, unfortunately.The series is based on a series of books by author  L.J. Smith and developed for TV by none other than Kevin Williamson of Scream fame, it follows the exploits of Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev), who falls for a handsome century-old vampire named Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) in the supernaturally charged town of Mystic Falls, Virginia.

The Vampire Diaries is not my cup of tea and I had trouble watching the overly dramatic and the emotionally manipulative happenings which definitely felt they were more suited to my teen daughters - who just so happen to love the show - than to my forty-something self. I'm a hardcore horror fan, I love visceral gore and violence, I want my vampires to be fang-deep in the blood of the innocent ...not deep in love. That being said WB have put together a great looking HD collection for the fans of the movie with some decent extras, they were a bit too fan-service oriented for my tastes but I am certain more age appropriate fans of the series will enjoy it. 2/5
