Time to Rant

So, I've been watching The Vampire Diaries since day 1, and loved it, especially Damon, but hey, what's not to love? The story was interesting - a teenage triangle. Two brothers in love with the same girl. Other characters were also interesting - Tyler and Matt, Jeremy and Jenna, Caroline and her mother, Bonnie and her grams. And Katherine, of course.  The plot was tight and I couldn't wait for Thursday nights.

But now, I hate to say, I'm losing interest in the show. There are too many characters. Too much blood. Too much death. I could live with that, but now, except for Matt (why doesn't he leave town?) there are no "good" guys left. Even Elena is a killer.

I find it increasingly ridiculous that anyone can be killed and revived and killed again. I mean, it seems like whenever the writers run out of ideas, they just kill someone, though few people stay dead. Enough already!

I wish the writers would get back to the core cast, get rid of Klaus and his messed-up family, bring back Tyler, let someone have a happy life.

I know a show needs tension, but, IMO, it's getting harder and harder to like these people when they've all become murderers, sometimes a dozen at a time!!!!
