I think the Vampire Dairies is going down. The romance has been taken out, the friendship has been taken out, They need to get new writers or bring back the ones that left. Judy is not good alone or she is not thinking just of this series anymore. Maybe multitask isn't her thing. The excitement was great when no matter what Stefan did Elaina was always there and Stefan for Elaina, now it's all eat, eat, eat blood while killing and sex, sex, sex. You have to bring the balance back, it's become to overweight on one side. This is suppose to be a teen show but your getting into adult situations where love kind of moves on around like living in a commune where everyone starts sleeping with everyone else who they use to love and the person they slept with and loved before just doesn't care anymore, really??? If vampirism brings out your feelings even more than, the jealousy would be triple and forgiveness wouldn't be that easy, your contradicting.
Vampire Dairies is becoming just like every other soap opera. This is a teen show that it seems that no one has parents. Really??? This town only has kids, where adults come to visit every once in a while.
The paranormal we already know isn't real and that's what makes it exciting. But we know that there isn't a town that only has adults visiting once in a while. It needs to bring some adults in there that you see, adults that show some authority with their kids, adults that has conflict with the kids or other adults if your going to change the show at least Elaina's aunt and her boyfriend were around and the other parents in the book. You have practically taken all the adults and killed them.
Also the Damon and Elaina romance didn't work in the book because it wasn't the story line. Maybe you should get L.J.Smith write the screenplay, she can't do any worse than what is being done now. I am writing a romance paranormal series on redemption I am not an authority of screen plays or books yet, but I have read thousands of books and seen thousands of movies just for research and this series is starting go down.
Please bring back the romance with Elena and Stefan or the show is going to be fighting to get back a 7th season, because I know the 6th is already approved.
Pls bring back the reason the vampire dairies series was so successful in books. Why would you try to fix something that wasn't broken? The series did do better with some of the scenes that were better than the book but the whole premise is the love between them both and if you start to drift to far away from that you are going to loose not only this viewer but thousands of others. When you start drifting to far it might be too late to get back. Good luck.
