And why just compare it to Buffy, there's also twilight, True blood and being human. It's more comparable to true blood and twilight because none of the girls are vampire slayers.

Might be, but BtVS and TVD is both created on the same source of inspireration.

If there's something that needs to stop on this forum is all the hate there's been lately....

I think we should be able to talk about other things than TVD on this forum...but if people are complaining than just keep it to one thread...if people want to talk about Buffy, then make a thread and stick to that thread...just like there's a Nikita thread and a Supernatural thread....I don't see the problem...besides there's already a Buffy thread...so just stick to that thread...

I don't want this thread to get out of hand but I agree with it. I come here to talk about TVD not Buffy. I come here because I like TVD, I don't want to criticize it. I mean yes there are things about the show that I wish the writers did differently but that's their job, not mine.

@TeamDamon4ever Agree with that statement

 

@DaisyJane Also true...I love how the writers make the show, though. Although I think they should've worked on the Stelena/Delena love triangle more and they need to stop killing Elijah, but they are the writers and I still love them.

When Buffy, Spike, Giles - WHOEVER is mentioned in almost every single thread (okay, exaggeration!) then it's annoying.

 

Not every thread. Just where its relevant. People don't just go and bring it up in entirelly unrelated things.

 

Yeah, TVD is TVD...it shouldn't be compared to other supernatural shows, like they're something to live up to. That just makes TVD look like a waste, compared to them and I don't like that.

But thats just truth you see, TVD will pale in comparison to BTVS. In fact majority of the shows released after or befor it fail in comparison to it. Hence why one does not go comparing the entire show and its only healthy to bring up character comparisons in related themes.

 

Let's be fair: comparing tvd to BTVS is like comparing Pearl Harbor movie to War and Peace novel. BTVS is on entirelly different level of quality and comparing episodes or themes is unfair.  However there is nothing wrong comparing developments of similar characters or scenes TVD takes from BTVS.I've never seen BTVS but I love TVD and I always will. 

That explains your opinion. Otherwise it would be very self-explanatory and normal thing to compare and it would come naturally

Yes, I know Elena will always be compared to Buffy. But to ask the writers to make Elena the mirror image of her? That's just ridiculous... 

Why? that would make Elena better and Buffy-clone is way better than Bella-clone.

. To be honest i'm surprised he hasn't done it already. 

Well, some people have jobs;. Shocking, I know.

And why just compare it to Buffy, there's also twilight, True blood and being human.

1. Twilight is a valid comparison however that just DOWNRIGHT degrades TVD. Elena might be Belav2, but this show has far more redeeming points than Twiligh.

2. Funny you bring this up because twilight plain ripped off(unlike TVD, which copied) quite a few things from BTVS(like building destroying sex) and True Blood(while i do not really like that sitcom) is riddled with BTVS references.

Might be, but BtVS and TVD is both created on the same source of inspireration.

This too I agree. NOt to mention that BTVS ppretty much kickstarted the whole cult following on vampire fiction on tv. Every show since BTVS started, every movie since then has been compared to BTVS, I don't see why it should stop with TVD.

And yes, BTVS is inspired by TVD book premise, hence why basic premise is similar(blonde girl with bitchy personality and superpowers and the two vampires she is in love with). Joss Whedon, a genius and god-born-on-earth IMO, pretty much looked at TVD premise and made something grand out of it back then. SOmething that surpassed tvd books and every bit of vampire fiction or tv shows that would come in decades.

I come here because I like TVD, I don't want to criticize it.  

Then don't but the fact that someone will remains. DEAL WITH IT. Thats freedom of speech. Its not socialism, fascism or some authoritarian regime where nothing bad can be said. Its democracy and population critiques.

Critique, constructive one will always remain as long as people can back the arguments up. As will comparisons.

That's why i wrote that it was an exaggeration.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
