that comment alone just tells me you hate Damon or your a SE Shipper.
Oh but that IS a pattern with Damon. All damon ahs ever done these two seasons:
1) sulk after elena.
2) sleep with random female.
Steffie is not better. They both are pretty much 100% clones of Edward,w ith their very own bella swan :)
his has turned into One Tree Hill, or the OC.
sorry, but at this point, that would be an insult to those two shows. TVD now has worse writing than those millions of mexican soap operas that come out every year.
The show became more mature because it appealed more to the male audience ...
by focusing on guys stripping down, increasing a fanservice and introducing 10 to one male to female cast ratio AND adding couple of stupid romance pairings? suuure To me it seems they are even more targetting twilight demo now. .
The guest stars also did incredible jobs, great castings for Mikeal,Bill,Esther, and new fan favorite rebekah..
Too bad that those characters came out to be a pointless plot devices ina plotless season and then pointlessly died for no reason, eh? :)
Also Becky? Fan favorite? Sorry, but nope. Klaus might be fanfavorite, but becky the original cheerleader, not even close.
he show became more mature because it appealed more to the male audience ... The characters like Damon,Elena,Stefan,Matt,Klaus
This HAS to be joke, right?
Elena remains as two-sentence baseline introduced to us int he first episode. Except that she now seems to have even less emotional capacity and personality than she had at the start. Sorry, but this has to be a joke statement.
o complare Elena to Bella just shows how much you hate VD... Bella has not a lick of charater..
neither does elena.
he still manage to be evil enough where he tried to kill Elena 3x21.
by...throwing stuff at her house after he tried to enter him anouncing his presence and was not able to? How smart. Sorry, that was hilarious and not in any way "good" for his character. Someomne who was set up as paranoid chessmaster, came off as a complete fool.
Damon is no cry baby, his trade mark humor is still there, he's still witty.. im sure you can agree on that.. but as his personality goes, he has grown in an amazing way.. his buried emotions in S1 are now at the surface....please tell me how Damon has suffered character assassination, when? how?
because the show stripped away the layers to leave the only "emotional crybaby layer". Damon went from multilayered complex character into a very one-note one. That's not growth, thats simplification.
At the bellow commenteR: but is that a character growth or character assassination?
If that is growth then Klaus too grew ! Grew from an interesting villain to ponny-painting wussy.
Damon's "growth" goes against his baseline. Its not growth. Its stripping down the layers into one-dimensional archetype. Damon started as a mixed character with many layers. By now there's just "wussy crybaby". There are no layers. no shades of gray anymore. Damon is a shadow of his former, INTERESTING, personality and thats not growth. Thats something every character except Caroline has suffered in this show.
Caroline's character grew with a meaningful and consistent character development.
Everyone else degraded.
yep. the show left "mature" two seasons ago. all that is left is shallow soap without logic or coherence and with even more , unlikeable, bland, underdeveloped and personality-less "protagonist" than bella swan
For those telling people to not knock S4 before seeing it.... Think of it this way:
TVD is a restaurant.
First time you came you got unexpectedly good quality meal .
The second time you came you found 10 dead flies in your soup.
The third time you came you saw the cooks spitting into the meal and the steak that was promised was rotten and stinking.
Will you come the fourth time expecting something good? no.
they do just throw something from left field when they need a new plot line, but, how else would they survive if they Didn't do that?
Oh, I don't know...how about BY ACTUALLY writing coherently, like all good quality shows tend to do?
They will be throwing stuff at us we wouldnt guess,
Sadly has not worked for last season and half. as 50% of S3 was outright predictable and the other 50% were trainwrecky "plot twists" that go against all possible logic and coherence.
