For the past few season I have been an avid Vampire Diaries fan, but something died inside of me about six episodes ago and I couldn't force myself to continue to watch. I have five episodes still unwatched on my PVR and I can't see myself watching.
I've blogged about the excitement of Vampire Diaries at the end of last season and couldn't wait for the new season to begin. Elena had died with Damon's vampire blood in her body and had risen as a vampire, while still Stefan's girl. Since then Elena has decided that she loves Damon and doesn't love Stefan in "that way" anymore. Elena's character has morphed into a heroine that I don't respect and can't empathize with. Actually she drives me crazy now!
I'm not sure if it's the love triangle or just the lack of sense of the heroine. The last time that I felt this way I was reading the last book of the Twilight series. Now I LOVED the first two books, but then as I started through the third one, Bella's whiny voice got to me and although I finished the series in less than a week (who needs sleep?) I had a bad taste in my mouth. And then once it hit the big screen, it was even worse. I had to make myself go to Eclipse and the first part of Breaking Dawn. And I have yet to watch the second part of Breaking Dawn. Why? Because I can't stand the whiny heroine, even when she learns to stand on her own two feet.
My PVR is running out of room and last week my husband asked if he could delete my Vamp Diaries because I wasn't watching them and I refused worried that my love and devotion could be sparked back up. After seriously thinking about it, I'm on my way to hit the "delete" button myself.
Has this ever happened to you? Any shows or book series that you devoured only to lose interest? Are you a fan of Vampire Diaries? Have you lost interest? Gained interest?
Thanks for reading!
