The Vampire Diaries - My Latest Obsession  

I have only recently began watching The Vampire Diaries, but have rapidly become completely hooked. Yes, it is cheesey, corny, and soapier than a car wash, but it also contains one of the best characters portrayed on television at the moment (in my humble opinion :-), Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder). Part of the reason, of course, is best explained with images rather than words...


You may also remember Somerhalder playing Boone on Lost - though I found both that show and the character largely forgettable. And I definately don't remember him being this smoking hot :-)

In any case, the character of Damon Salvatore is not only ridiculoulsy good looking, he is charming, sarcastic, evil, scheming and consistently funny, always getting the best lines in every episode. He is ever so very flawed, and completely aware of that fact and open about it to everyone else. For example, here is a quote:
Mason: I've heard a lot of great things about you.
Damon: Really? That's weird because I'm a dick.

And he is just so very, very bad...


It's nice to have a new obsession :-)
