Extended Preview Video for The Vamprie Diaries on The CW with Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley, and Nina Dobrev

The Vampire Diaries: A Longer Look

If there were a literal music video version of this new, extended trailer for The CW's Vampire Diaries, I think half the captions would read "hot dudes stare hotly." Seriously, there are so many intense looks in this video that by the time the five minutes were up, Paul Wesley's eyes were burned into my brain. (I guess I'm starting to buy that whole "epicly beautiful" thing.)

When we're not staring deeply into Wesley's soul, we're learning more about Elena (Degrassi's Nina Dobrev) and the two vampires who will be battling for her heart and soul: Stefan (Wesley), who seems like a mopey puppydog of a vampire, and Damon (Ian Somerhalder), his smug, sarcastic, and more evil older brother. For me, the trailer picks up when Somerhalder arrives on the scene; I like his snappy comments, and the relationship between the two brothers looks like something I could get used to watching.

There are plenty of cheesy moments, but for whatever reason, I found myself oddly satisfied after watching this preview. Does it make you want to check out the series come Fall — or are you planning to skip it? To check out the video, just

I want to see it, but I thought Ian was the good guy and I found him more attractive initially, but now I'm torn between both of them haha. Idk about Nina, I also didn't like her on Degrassi, or maybe it was just her character?? lol.

This doesn't seem much like the books, but it looks intriguing (for television) nonetheless. I'll watch!

*cue the teenie-bopper squealing* I used to LOVE all of LJ Smith books so I'm really excited about this. Kind of reminds of how they changed things for True Blood from the Charlaine Harris books. Despite the changes, it looks like it'll be really fun to watch. Can't wait!!

I'll probably tune in for a couple of episodes at least. I love the original books, despite their cheesiness, so it might be neat to see something done in their spirit. I'm kind of glad they're not doing it word-for-word from the books!

I really hated this girl on Degrassi. I kinda liked the preview, but she's ruining for me.

I've never read the books, and I was kind of hesitant about the idea of this, but the trailer actually was kind of appealing. I might have to check it out.

I read these books back in 1992 and just finished re-reading them at the beach. They were in serious need of updating. Everything about them screamed 1980s. I hope they don't completely ruin it though.
