I hated Twilight (the book) but kinda dug Twilight (the movie), so I’m not sure how I feel about The CW’s latest pilot, Vampire Diaries:
Originally published in 1993 – which, as the CW took pains to note, was years before Stephenie Meyer launched her Twilight book franchise – Vampire Diaries revolves around a young woman who’s torn between two vampire brothers – one good, one evil – who are battling for her soul, and the souls of her pals, family and the small town where they live.
On the one hand, it’s being produced by the same company who does Gossip Girl and showrun by Dawson’s Creek‘s Kevin Williamson. Both potentially awesome. On the other hand, vampires are sooooo 2008.
