Okay so we're 6 episodes in and so far not bad. The end of last season was fantastic and I've read the books so I wasn't surprised that Elena finally became a vampire but this show shouldn't even say it's based on the books because it's so far from what the books are. But overall I do enjoy this show and who doesn't love Ian Somerhalder!! Yum Yum
