    Although this show has same kinda drama, it is interesting to watch every episode. This is the best show ever! Keep renewing this as long as possible. It has a long way to go. I also suggest that series can have Original family at times. Love it!!

    I think the show should be cancelled after it’s sixth season. Continuing on for another 2 or 3 seasons would just damage the shows reputation. First off, none of the mythology adds up anymore and the story line has remained the same for the last 6 years (saving elena, love triangle with the two brothers and elena, damon going psycho, stefan trying to save him) It’s repetitive and boring and I think it’s time to make room for a new fresh show. I think the show should end, while it’s still on a high. I haven’t even watched the last three episodes because it feels like a chore to keep up with it now.

    I think the vampire diaries is amazing. I think season 6 will be great and there should definitely be a season 7 too! I just think they need to include more stelena (but in real life not dreams) we’ve had 2 seasons of delena, seriously we want some stelena back! However 5×18 Resident Evil that paul directed was phenomenal, I cried so hard!

    This show without originals isn’t the same.only interesting thing in the show was caroline and klaus (klaroline) relationship now without them the ratings will drop it’s just elena drama drama all over again so whenever klaroline starts I will watch the show again

    The last couple episodes have been pretty sweet. Whenever Damon returns to “complete psychopath” mode, the show always improves. Overall, the show started falling off once the Originals showed up; they started stealing every scene they were in, and Elena, or Katerina, and whatever else she is, is just toooo much of her; she can get annoying. It’s kind of ironic, but I think this show accidentally screwed itself by bringing in The Originals, but on the other hand, The Originals is an AMAZING show and WILL keep going, and I guarantee you that the dude who plays Klaus is going to have a very prosperous career after he gets the recognition he deserves for his range of acting ability, and I suppose the ladies think he’s a decent looking guy, but even I can understand the appeal of the British accent; drives girls insane.

      If you don’t round it, the demo is actually a 0.88 rating. I’m using the unrounded numbers when they’re available so we have more accurate averages. Rounding can make a big difference — especially when you have small demo numbers like the CW’s.

    I tvd kind of suck. I mean I like the actors and the acting but it’s really just frustrating. I mean I only really watch it because Michael Trevino, Nina Dobrev, and Steven R. McQueen is in it. And they’re all really good but, it could do better. I’m rooting for the show, I am, I just hope it gets better. So yeah another season.

  8. Maro says

      Why bother, this show is going in the toilet. I agree season 4 and especially season 5 are just awful……terrible, terrible lazy writing.
