My favorite time of year is almost here – new Fall TV Season! It is like Christmas in September! I eagerly await Entertainment Weekly’s Fall TV Preview with the same anticipation I had waiting for the Sears catalog to come when I was a kid. Back then I would mark up page after page with desired Barbie items and anything involving plastic horses. Now I dog-ear my EW as I figure out what shows are worth my time and what shows I don’t trust the networks to keep on long enough for me to even learn the characters names.

One show I’m already excited for hits so many sweet spots on my cheese-meter: the CW’s Vampire Diaries. Yes, I know we should be on vampire backlash by now (I give it until a few weeks past the release of New Moon) Let’s take a look at the key ingredients to pull me into this sure to be craptastic show:

  1. Vampires
  2. Teens
  3. Pretty Boys
  4. Kevin Williamson

I have read all the damn Twilight books and am nursing a serious addiction to True Blood at the moment so  – check. I love, LOVE beyond all reason Cheesy Teen Dramas (90210 Original Flavor, The O.C.) – check. And Kevin Williamson – god bless him – gave us one of the all time greatest CTD’s everDawson’s Creek. I mean – he gave us Pacey Witter!! For that alone I owe this show a shot: Vampire Diaries on the CW

Loners in black leather jackets! 28 year olds playing teens! Love Triangles! Rage! Fangs! If this pilot ends w/ a musical montage as we review the teen angsty states of all the main characters I will be sold.

Premieres this Thursday @8PM
