If you guys are Vampire Diaries fans I would love to hear about the new fall premiere! I think the transition to college is going well so far and look forward to the new story lines they come up with. Kind of reminding me of Buffy when she made the leap to college and locking Stefan under water is almost exactly what they did to Angel. Buffy is one of the greats though, so I’m not complaining about a little déjà vu.
Thank heavens Homeland finally jerked itself back onto the rails last night. Long con, indeed!
