    I'm still watching. I LOVE it. I thought my DVR missed a recording too, but I just think they skipped this week. I'm so into this series.

      I was sad it wasn't on. I kinda had a mini freak out cause our guide is always F'ed up showing shows at the wrong times, etc. I had to google to ensure it wasn't really on.

      However, I went out and bought 4 of the books with a gift card. I started it last night. I'm liking it but the character of Elena is so different!

        Different in what way? I definitely won't read the books because I already have like 10 books on my shelf I haven't cracked open yet.

          She's really full of herself in the books. She is continually looking at herself in the mirror and thinking she is so beautiful. She's also the "queen" of the high school- the most beautiful, desirable girl and apparently she knows it. She's a maneater and wants Stefan so she can "conquer" him because he keeps turning her down. Granted I'm at pg 50, but so far she seems like a huge bitch.

          The TV version of her is MUCH more likeable. However, I'm digging the style of writing. It's a little more of a mature read- for teen lit that is. I don't feel as dorky liking it like Twilight or House of Night.

            Ahh, yeah, that doesn't sound likable at all. I like the tv version of Elena so I'm glad they didn't make her like the book version. That description does kind of sound like Katherine though.... and BTW I was not expecting the reveal about Katherine (Catherine?) being the one who turned the boys. I am interested to see vampire Vicky (is that her name? the druggie girl) though!

              I read the first 2 books in high school and couldn't continue reading them. Elena in the books continues to be narcissistic through the first and possibly the second, I don't remember. I hope they don't follow the books - they get a little weird from what I've heard, like Elena turns into a spirit .

              I do love the TV show, I'm glad they got rid of the corny fog and stuff! My fiance even watches it - I love that it's darker than everything else on TV (not including supernatural)

                I can't believe I just found this thread. I LOVE this show. I didn't think I would at first, but I was hooked after the pilot and have been following it ever since. I agree. I do like it because it's a little darker than other series' on tv. I didn't expect that at all. Bummer that this week was a repeat. Can't wait til the next episode!

                  I read the first 2 books when they came out but now I want to read them again! I don't remember much from 10 years ago! LOL

                  I do remember Elena being a mean girl though.

                  The author, LJ Smith has restarted the series. One book is out now and the other is due in March, I think.

                  Great idea about the GC, Rach. I have one to borders that I totally forgot about!

                    I am still watching as well. I was super bummed that it was a rerun this week.

                      And another re-run this week But I LOVE how they are straying from the books...it makes it more exciting not knowing exactly what's going to happen...like the twilight movies.
