Jessica Jumps In: A Newbie's Sample Of The Vampire Diaries
4. Necessary Investment Level
I never expected to say this about The Vampire Diaries, but it’s the sort of show you really need to invest in, especially while watching. With its ensemble cast and quickly paced story, audiences really have to focus while watching or they will miss major plot points. There are so many different plotlines and histories between the characters that you don’t want to miss anything while watching.
While the CW’s vampire and human love story isn’t without complications or intrigue, audiences could still skip an episode or two a season. While watching, I really felt like the show would have been much easier to grasp had I had a little background knowledge. Until some of the characters exhibited ripped out hearts or created a spell for fire, I wasn’t sure if they were human or supernatural and the characters had to “spell” it out for me.
