Even now, there are girls who go crazy when they hear the names of Damon Salvatore or Stefan Salvatore. The Vampire Diaries first aired in 2009 and has ruled the hearts of viewers ever since. Apart from the cast, the storyline serves as a major factor compelling you to watch the show.
#1 Hotness Overloaded
The cast of The Vampire Diaries is a complete package of hot, sexy and sometimes cute. Although every character is attractive, Damon Salvator tops the list at all times not only in appearance but also in his sarcasm.
The romance between a witch and human, vampire and human, vampire and werewolf and so on will make your heart skip a beat. Some of them are Delena, Stelena, Klaroline, Steroline, Forwood, Bamon.
#3 The Right Pace
TVD has just the right pace. It never drags any situation more than required and therefore, never gets boring. You’ll never see someone being sad for a long time over someone he/she has lost or a mistake he/she has made, everyone is always busy fighting the new villain in Mystic Falls.
#4 Interesting characters with mysterious lives
The fascinating characters become all the more exciting to watch with their flashbacks popping up. Each character has a background story describing how he/she became a vampire. The moment you think you have figured out a character the show throws you a flashback shedding all your theories in dirt.
#5 The Friendship
The characters in the story are willing to do anything for the sake of their friendship, which includes sacrificing their lives or even taking someone’s life.
#6 Plot Twists
One of the aspects of TVD that makes it worth the watch are the endless plot twists. Even if you have forgotten what happened in the previous seasons, the show does not. The strong character development with each season (also episodes to a certain extent) keeps you glued to your laptop screen watching one episode after another.
#7 No black and white but shades of grey
None of the characters of the vampire diaries has absolutely pure motives but is driven by his/her intention to save himself/herself or his/her loved ones. It is quite interesting to watch characters doing all the right things for all the wrong reasons as well as doing all the wrong things for all the right reasons. Moreover, there are repercussions for every action and there is no running away from it.
#8 Best Villains
TVD has a whole string of entertaining (also hot) villains. You never know what will be their next move. Mikael, Elijah, Klaus, Katherine and many more. Even the protagonists can turn into villains with just a flip of the humanity switch.
#9 Scariness accompanied by existential questions
The best part about TVD and also the scariest is not just losing your dear ones but even worse i.e. losing yourself. Vampires are given a choice to flip their humanity switch and refrain from feeling any kind of emotions making them monsters. However, they are not monsters until and unless they do not flip the switch; they always have a choice.
