Product Description

The vampire brothers Damon and Stefan Salvatore, eternal adolescents, having been leading 'normal' lives and hiding their bloodthirsty condition for centuries, moving on before their non-aging is noticed. Now they are back in the Virginia town where they became vampires. Stefan is noble, denying himself blood to avoid killing, and he tries to control his evil brother Damon. Stefan falls in love with schoolgirl Elena, whose best friend is a witch, like her grandma. Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley star in this dramatic vampire TV series from Warner Home Video. This package contains season three of The Vampire Diaries in a five-disc box set.

From the Manufacturer


Give In to Your Appetite

The sexy, sinister beings of The Vampire Diaries are back in a thrilling Season Three. As Stefan succumbs to Klaus, Damon and Elena join forces to try to save him, rekindling their long-repressed emotions. Meanwhile the door to the other side opens wide, allowing spirits to invade and come between Jeremy and Bonnie. Caroline and Tyler grow closer, pushing their families farther apart. But when the original vampire hunter and his kin arise from their caskets after a thousand years, every hybrid, ghost, witch, vampire and werewolf of Mystic Falls had better beware.

This show is just so amazing. I been a fan since season one and I could say it just keeps getting better and better. The plots pull off more action and blood, but also a more deep look on the characters feelings. Also, the introduction of new characters (and comebacks of old ones) are part of the reason has been so good since the beginning.
Every episode is a great episode, because sometimes in a show they are some few episodes you want to forget (maybe because they're too boring, and useless for the main plot), but that's not the case with this show. Every episode is important.
I know that only half of the season aired (writing this as of November 10th, the original airing of the "mid-season" finale), but I could say is so far so good. I can't wait to see the another half (hopefully something more extreme). Anyway, I hope this show lasts at least five seasons, because it has a lot of strings to pull off, and that fans could enjoy easily... It's worth the pre-order.

I only regret is that it is only on once a week. I think that the Vampire Diaries Series has the potential to run for many seasons to come. There is a fantastic set of characters that can travel back and forward in time to revel the secrets of the past and how they interplay with the present and the future. the historic perspectives are so interesting. Europe, Romania, Chicago .Mystic Fall, The plots and settings are endless can't get enough off it. Did I mention the love story and sexual tension between so many of the characters, not only the stars of the series Damien, Elena and Stefan. Want more could we possibly ask for than more,more,more!!!

I was only somewhat shocked about the turn of events in this episode; I felt it was just a matter of time before certain events occurred (so as not to be too much of a spoiler, I will just say that this is in regard to what happens with Alaric and Elena). Some issues were wrapped up, but we are left with enough cliffhangers to keep us on edge until the show returns in the fall. There were plenty of the twists that keeps fans of the show hooked! All in all, a very exciting season finale for one of the most addictive shows on TV. If a fan of this show, this episode is a must!
Just to comment on Vampire Dairies in general and the Twilight comparisons: I gave this show a shot when I was bored with my usual TV fare and wanted something different, waiting to sneer at the "cheap Twilight knock-off." But to my surprise, Vampire Dairies is SO MUCH BETTER (and I am a fan of Twilight!). This show is everything Twilight wants to be. The acting is better, the stories more engaging, there are no neat little happy endings, and, for the characters, the lines between good and evil are much more blurred, which, in my opinion, provides for greater dramatic impact. Don't be put off by the demographic this show is aimed at (I am WAY over that line!)- its just a well-made show that deserves greater recognition.

Great storyline, sexy cast, great acting, great directing and producing. The show seems to get better and better. Episode after episode. And since the very first episode blew my mind, season three is a killer!

While it's undeniable that The Vampire Diaries is targeted at the teen to 20s crowd, it has appeal for other ages. The gore and violence is kept relevant rather than over the top - and I challenge anyone who doesn't normally buy into the supernatural genre to give this show a chance.

While the constant drama surrounding Elena does, at times, get as boring and annoying as the similar infatuation with Lana on Smallville, the show delivers powerful story lines, interesting twists and excellent performances from the majority of the cast. You become drawn into the story and the acting is so good that, for the most part, you completely forget that you're watching a show.

Memorable, delicious, with a depth of emotion that drives the main characters to do what's necessary, unthinkable, unavoidable. A great show!

The Vampire Diaries season 3 is full of magic and mayhem and does not relent for a second!

One of the best things about Vampire Diaries is the lore and the mythology the creators and the writers have intertwined with the show. We learn so much about the origins and history of all of the characters of the vamps, weres and witches - each mythos being fresh and darn right brilliant. To me, VD is the best vampire franchise ever, second only to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. VD is far superior to Twilight, because the romance is actually realistic and authentic and the show is actually dark, like a vampire franchise should be. VD is better then True Blood because, True Blood (excluding the brilliant first season) tries waaaaay too hard to be dark and gritty and it focuses more on the sex and blood then it does on the acutal characters and storylines. Dont get me wrong, Vampire Diaries is def flawed, but on a scale of 1 to 10, it is a 8.5 and like I said, it is the best vampire franchise since the cult series, Buffy. Season 3, so far, has withoutadoubt(!) been the best season thus far and it only gets better! Its dark and sexy and doesn't try too hard while still touching every element a vampire show should have and more!

The characters, every single one of them are well rounded and the show has a cast of brilliantly strong females; from Katherine and Elena, to the amazing Caroline and the great Bonnie and the really missed Anna and Lexie! This is a show Twilight and True Blood should have aspired to be like ..... also, Secret Circle, you are a good show, but not as good as your sister program, VD, so take a note and quit the sex nonsense and sub-nudity and get better, like I know you can. Your a great show, but you can be amazing like Vampire Diaries!!!

Release date?
Probably sometime this summer. I think the last two seasons have been released in July or August (that's when the library got them, anyway), so season three will probably be the same.
