Whedonverse writers working on The Vampire Diaries. Kansas City Star interview with Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain.

Vampire Diaries is great. Seriously.
Like their stuff, not sure if I like it enough to catch up on this show (watched the first 6 ish and felt like I pretty much got the idea).

Put it this way, I didn't even watch it for Gina ;).
Yessss. I was planning to watch the series for David Anders. This show just keeps on surprising me with stuff!
It got surprisingly decent as the season went on. Fast-paced, dark, violent and a tad scary. Pretty good for a teenage fantasy show.
Yeah, basically after the first five/six there's a huge improvement. It's one of my favourite shows on right now actually. So: Yay!
The show is actually really good. The first few episodes aren't much, but around the sixth/seventh it picks up and gets pretty awesome. Definitely worth checking out (again). As for the article, yay! :D
I haven't bothered to check, but I swear The CW employs the highest number of female writers around.
Cool, so I apparently stopped watching just as it got good. Bloody typical ;).
Yeah, I'd say episode 6 ("Lost Girls") is when things really start picking up. Good stuff. :-)
Don't they already have Andrew Chambliss from Dollhouse? I loooove The Vampire Diaries!
This show turned into the biggest (happy) surprise of the last TV season for me. Somerhalder is a revelation. He's more Spike than Spike was. :)

Saje, after that is when it started to pick up.

Exactly my reaction. Great news to hear Fain and Craft are joining them! :)
I wasn't wild about it, but I have to admit that what others are saying is true. It really did get better after several episodes. Honestly, I thought the pilot was atrocious. I even kept watching in an "oh my, this is so bad it's good" sort of way. Then about halfway through Season 1 (marathoned it), I realized I was enjoying it. :)
Score another one for the posters here who said it got way better. I also tuned into the pilot and went, "Yeah... That's what I thought this would be." Then I heard posters here saying how much better it got so I did a marathon of it and powered through. Now I'm hooked cause it did get surprisingly awesome. With Fain and Craft on board I'm even more stocked for the second season!
It is my favorite show with White Collar being second. What other series have you watched that had 7 cliff hangers at the end of the season? I can't hardly wait until the new season starts Thursday. Ian has got Damon down perfectly and reminds me so much of James and Spike and has beautiful blue eyes with that dark hair, what is not to love. TVD is the best vampire show or movie out right now.

The 4400 season 2 finale, geez that was intense. I must give Vampire Diaries a look see, it does sound like fun. That and The Gates as well.
Been watching 'The Gates' and it's not bad with some decent moments (must admit part of the appeal is the ever watchable Rhona Mitra and the woman that plays the police chief's wife is fit too, even if the character herself makes watching paint dry seem like a day at Alton Towers). It's kind of like 'Knots Landing' or 'Melrose Place' with vampires/the supernatural.

May take another look at 'Vampire Diaries'.
