Vampire Diaries: Season One

I have been hooked on the Vampire Diaries for years.  This series actually started before Twilight became popular.  Then it became a television series, and that's what I want to talk about.  Tell us, who is your favorite vampire on the show?  Do you enjoy Damon more than Stephan?  Katherine more than Caroline?

And what do you think about the direction the show is taking?  I don't want to spoil it for people who haven't devoured every second of it yet.  So if you are going to comment with specifics, please put Spoiler Alert on it.

Personally, I love Damon.  I have from the very beginning.  Remember when (spoiler alert) he turned Vicki into a vampire and danced with her at the mansion?  That was epic.  It happens to be one of my most favorite moments from the show.  What about you?  What are your favorite moments?


In Season One:  I am among the many who fell for Damon over his brother.  While Stephen is brooding and tortured, Damon is bloodthirsty and driven.  If someone is being tortured, Damon is usually behind it.  He plays with people as if they are puppets, compelling them to do whatever he wants.

Elena is the girl both brothers are intrigued by.  In the opening, Stephen says he 'has to know her.'   It takes a while for us to find out why, that he was once in love with her mirror image.  This is also why Damon wants to get close to her.

There are many wonderful characters in this show.  What was your favorite episode?  Who is your favorite vampire?
