Where was the entertainment industry when I was a younger lad into the vampire situation? It seems like whenever I turn on the TV or browse the internet Iím hearing about yet another vampire story. Whether itís Twilight, Moonlight, or some other light I canít escape it. And most of itís bad, or at best mediocre. Perhaps I should be thankful that I had Buffy, the greatest vampire story ever put to film, and not some of these lamer attempts.
So it was in this mindset that I perused Production Weekly and was not in the least surprised to see that Steven R. McQueen Ė Steve McQueenís grandson Ė has been cast as Jeremy in The CWís Vampire Diaries. The series, from Kevin Williamson of Scream and Dawsonís Creek infamy, is about two vampire brothers. One is evil, one is good; and theyíre both after a girl named Elena. Being vampires theyíd also like a taste of her family and friends in the town they live in. Sounds overly dramatic and in need of an all new Pacey on television to me.
I kind of hate that so much of the vampire lore coming out is of the trite variety that Twilight has unleashed on the world. It still astounds me that anyone liked CBSís Moonlight. Iíll stick to my Buffy and original Vampire Chronicles, thank you very much.
