New interview by Kevin Williamson
KW's interview. Gems like this can be found here:WILLIAMSON: Essentially, the father being gay is not really the story. He is a gay man, a gay character. What we’re doing is his point of view about vampires. It’s very specific. He’s part of the Council, he’s against all vampires, but he also has a daughter who’s a vampire. What do you do? So it’s more of the father/daughter relationship, rather than any sort of other story.
I laughed out loud at this. So he is bassically saying "we find his sexual preference boring so we will make him into unlikeable racist dick instead!"....WILLIAMSON:Things always change when you start breaking the storylines, but I think from the day beginning when [fellow VAMPIRE DIARIES executive producer/show runner] Julie [Plec] and I sat down and laid out how are we going to get to the finish line of the very end of the entire show, we’re still on track. It’s going to end where we always said we were going to end. And we’re doing it all within the right time. We said, “This is going to happen in Season Two, and this will happen in Season Three.” And so we know where we’re headed at the end of the season to launch our fourth season.
I just LOVE how in this bit he starts to bullshit. HE HIMSELF SAID LAST SEASON THAT THEY HAVE NO PLAN and nnow he is chirping a different tune. Ooops.
Good to know that directionless trainwreck of this season was PREPLANNED....WILLIAMSON: but we’re in addition to following the books to some degree, we keep going back to the books and saying, “What can we pillage? What have we not done yet? What have we not used? How can we take this storyline and manipulate it and change it and turn it around?”
HOW ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT WAS GOOD ABOUT THE BOOOKS, EH?WILLIAMSON: She’s one of the characters in the books that we sort of changed who she is, a little bit, but now we’ve got her and she’s a new love interest to take [Alaric’s] mind off Aunt Jenna,
"ABIT"? " A BIT"? YOU MADE HER UNRECOGNISABLE. You completely raped Meredith's character and destroyed what was good about her. SHE IS ONE OF THE MOST HATED CHARACTERS ON THIS SHOW NOW,a longside matt and Elena. THE LEGENDARY Cardboard Trio.WILLIAMSON: Yes. We have no problem pacing ourselves. We’ll pace it up if we have to.
SURE. No problem at all except that this season was one huge pointless filler.
And now prepare for the BEST PART OF THE WHOLE INTERVIEW:WILLIAMSON: I love it. I’m loving this season. I think Julie Plec and her writers are doing an amazing job, and I’m glad they still let me be a part of it [laughs].
Yep. Any hope for this show is lost now.
Also lets not forget to vote up Elena as the character you want to kill off the most here:http://www.spoilertv.com/2012/02/poll-which-vampire-diaries-characters.html
lul wtf is kw smoking is he still working on TVD?
frankly at this point I think he is in his "Hidden Palms" writing mode, aka not good.
lul like TSC
TSC is so fail
I never seen an episode but from I heard about the storyline and Price's caps lul
lul KW ad Josh Schwartz
should make a club called: we hire retarded writers club because we're too fucking lazy to fix the mess we left for a new crappy show.
How can we take this storyline and manipulate it and change it and turn it around?I don't want a "manipulated" version of the books, I want a GOOD TV Show INTERPRETATION of the BOOKS. Not TV Show changing everything I love about the books.
TSC is ... ew. I'll probably watch bits of next episode because maybe I'll get my "super evil Daddy" but I really, really doubt it.
going by tvd I bet Black John will cry and start building a house somewhere...
Lol at last episode's "Adam is posessed by ghosts". No, just no.
