I wasn't impressed with Moonlight overall, but Alex O'Loughlin was likable and Jason Dohring is always good.

I've stayed far away from Vampire Diaries. I'm familiar with the actors who play those two vampires and they're not favorites of mine.

Peter Facinelli is an actor I've liked in various things. He's good as Carlisle. Jasper sems a tad wimpy. And isn't he the one that wanted to chow down on Bella in the second film?

Eric was better in season 2 than season 1.

Eric really got on my nerves in season 1, so I wrote some parodies:

1)

Eric: Sookie is MINE!
Bill: No fair!
Sookie: I don't belong to anybody!
Vampire Queen: How about if I chop her in half and you both get half?
Eric: Yeah, that'd be ok with me.
Bill: No, don't chop her in half!
Sookie: Nobody's going to chop me in half!
Tara: Y'all are so stupid!
Eric: I'm bored. I think I'll go pillage a village.

2)

::Bill comes home and hears music in his house, comes upstairs to find the door to his bathroom open and Eric's in the bath, with music playing on his radio::
Eric: It sounds better if you understand Old Swedish.
Bill: Wtf are you doing in my bath?
Eric: No, really, it does. I'm not just kidding you.
Bill: Wtf are you doing in my bath?!
Eric: I was a Viking you know, so I was around when Old Swedish was spoken.
Bill: Dude, wtF are you doing in my bath?!
Eric: I mean, I used to go on these Viking raids and burn people's homes and rape people. And dogs. I was so cool.
Bill: Wtf are you doing in my bath?!!!
Eric: I'm really the coolest dude in town. Have you ever raped a dog?
Bill: Uh, what?!
Eric: Or a cat?
Bill: Get out of my damn bath!!
Eric: You can't give me orders. I'm your superior. I'm soooo superior. And Sookie belongs to me.
Bill: That's it! ::grabs a stake and stakes Eric::
Bill: Oh crap, now my bathroom's a mess.

3)

Eric: The books say I marry Sookie, so that’s it –she’s MINE!
Tara: No she’s not! Sookie is her own damn person!
Jason: Books? There’s books? Does that mean I have to read? I can’t read!
Sam: Woof! ::snarls at Eric::
Bill: We had books back in my day.
Tara: And slaves!
Eric: When I went a-Viking, we used to take slaves!
Tara: You too, huh? Why am I not surprised? You think you own Sookie.
Eric: I DO own Sookie. Charlaine Harris wrote that I marry her, so-
::Tara kicks him in the balls::
Eric: Ow!
Tara: Bill, let’s grab him!
Bill: I’m with you.
::Bill and Tara grab Eric::
Eric: Hey! What’s this? You can’t grab me! I’m the boss!
Jason: Can I join in?
Sam: Woof! ::bites Eric::
::They all drag Eric into the bathroom::
Eric: Hey, what are you doing?
Tara: Shove him into the toilet!
::They shove Eric headfirst down the toilet::
::Eric’s garbled cries from inside the toilet::
Jason: But what if I want to use the toilet?
Tara: Go do it outside, like Sam.
Sam: Woof!
::Eric sings in Old Swedish from inside the toilet bowl::
::Bill kicks Eric in the balls::
Eric: Ow!
Bill: Sookie is NOT yours.
Eric: But Charlaine Harris SAID-
Tara: Tough!
Eric: Waaaaaaaaaa!

Oh and Old Swedish wasn't spoken by the Vikings. That was Old Norse. But Eric doesn't know that and maybe the show writers don't either.

Is it just me or does the main vamp boyfriend in Vampire Diaries look kinda like Angel:

The main actress isn't bad looking: Photos of Nina Dobrev

I'm thinking maybe I'll sully myself with brainless teen crap and watch a bit to see what it's like. I've sampled most vampire shows over the years... Buffy, Angel, Forever Knight, Kindred the Embraced, Blade The Series, True Blood, Moonlight, Dark Shadows original and Dark Shadows the remake. Haven't seen Being Human yet but I intend to sample it. Haven't seen Blood Ties.

Hated how Forever Knight ended. They seemed determined to kil off every likable character. Retroactively ruined the show for me. It was never a great show, but it had a good central actor. Moonlight was a weak show. The main actor was likable, but not very forceful. Jason Dohring was good though. Kindred wasn't great but it had some interesting stuff and some good actors, notably Mark Frankel. The original Dork Shadows is pretty hard to take. The remake show from the early 90s is much better, an interesting atmosphere piece. Pity it was never finished. Blade The Series had a great female vampire character, Krista Starr. Buffy and True Blood are the best vampire shows.

I didn't care for Forever Knight all that much anyway

You seemed pretty enthusiastic about Kindred, way back when.

Kindred was pretty good, but I think it's more because I really liked the whitewolf game, and wanted to see what they'd make of the series.
