The NY Post throws down the gauntlet and ticks off five reasons why Vampire Diaries is better than Twilight, citing legacy, violence, sex, a strong, independent female lead, and how Vampire Diaries is the under-dog:
“The vampires, while pretty, are still sort of vicious,” explained Lindsay Soll, editor of MTV’s Hollywood Crush blog. “When they’re hungry and about to feed, their fangs come out — they don’t even have fangs in ‘Twilight’ — and their veins stick out. They’re not afraid to make pretty people ugly.”
They’re also not afraid to make pretty people die.
