Vampire Diaries just keeps getting better. I love that the episodes are focusing so much more on the bad brother than the good one. I've never read the books, but it's definitely the best plotted vampire soap opera out there. That's unexpected and very much the right thing to do.
Supernatural, on the other hand, was a letdown. The writing is so uneven on that show. Sam, Dean, and Bobby had very little of their usual personality and it wasn't the fault of the actors. Ben Edlund usually writes so much better for that show, but with this limp, humorless episode I'm starting to lose faith in him.
