Thoughts about Connor?
^ thats just another retcon to balance the ridiculous powerlevel, strength and speed differences between humans and vampires - writers went with the whole frameskip effect shit and then mid S2 went overboard with vampire "greatness",to the point that the show is insulting our intellignce, by even implying that a vamp can't just own every hunter in town within seconds and trying to present them as "danger".
It just reveals that the show had absolutely no planning at all in its planning stages.Posted 10/20/2012 2:03:17 PM #
I mean hell, this show can't even decide on whether vamp hearts beat or not, as it openly contradicts itself in S2 and S3, its obvious they just make up shit as they go along without even checking for consistency.Posted 10/20/2012 2:06:06 PM #
Is there some button to block people from posting on the thread? Because I'm growing tired of a certain person who obviously has no other purpose in life than to go around and bash every TV show. You dislike it? Fine; you say it once. You don't go around and reply hateful stuff. Unless that really IS the only purpose of your life...Posted 10/20/2012 3:06:36 PM #
He sticks around to discuss other shows, but he's been active in the recap threads, so yeah Kitty, gotta go with the newbie here (welcome!!), why are you discussing the show everytime an ep airs when you're not even watching it? Anyway this forum is in the Paleozoic age, there's no block button.Posted 10/20/2012 3:58:33 PM #

now now, that's an insult to my reputation.
I do not bash "every tv show".
only the bad ones.

Because the writing fuck ups are still freaking hilarious. I am at the point where I pretty much do not care about the show, but have this strange masochistic interest in finding out on how much more nonsensical can Plec's writing get. Same still is with Supernatural. I guess you can call it bitterness for the show's lost potential.
And hey, making fun of Elena is ALWAYS healthy.Posted 10/20/2012 4:15:32 PM #
lol new people hating on kitty. happens every time. Karally welcome!
Anyway I'm pretty sure Jeremy will become a hunter. Remember how in the premiere he told Elena "I don't want you to become another one of them (vampires)".

About Connor, I always wanted hunters to come to Mystic Falls (legit hunters not like Alaric), but he's boring and he pretty much sucks. I mean vervain gloves wow how original. And tricking them with the blood. That was stupid. Also why did he have to stab that girl to get the blood? Couldn't he just use blood bags or something? Aren't hunters supposed to protect innocent people from vampires? Did he really have to stab that girl who had just lost her family? I mean come on. Unless he's not just a hunter. I don't know.Posted 10/20/2012 4:39:50 PM #

Supposedly because he's "hardcore". Yep...makes total sense...not.
Aren't hunters supposed to protect innocent people from vampires?
In a show that glorifies rapists like Damon and excuses all the fucked up shit and mistakes main cast did as if nothing?
Well of course hunters would be the badguys, can't have the salvabros portrayed in negative light after all.Posted 10/20/2012 4:45:39 PM #
Of course that was obvious since the s1, back then when the show did NOT suck - the show suffered from Twilight syndrome - as in "poor pitiful bloodsuckers, how dare those humans defend against them"
There's no sense of gray morality here(nor any kind of morality, tbh) - every hunter is a dick and the viewer is supposed to root for serial killers purelly because they are pretty, as show refuses to acknoledge or give consequences to their actions.Posted 10/20/2012 4:51:12 PM #
I hated Connor for the whole April thing! Whats the point of being a vampire hunter if ur much worse?Posted 10/20/2012 6:38:21 PM #
