  1. Season 2 is already about to be released? I feel like we were just hearing about this new series. I admit, it's not one I watched, nor will I probably watch at all, but it must have gained some traction if it already has another season lined up.

    1. It was hugely popular among the female audience (give them hot male vampires and they will always go wild LOL). I thought it was rather poorely done, monotonous and childish, with the worst female performance I've ever seen on the small screen by Palmer. But, otherwise, it was watchable and relatively short with just eight episodes I think. It won't air this year, but next.

  2. A witch and a vampire. What a combination! But with the right chemistry, everything is possible.
    Nice, good-looking couple in the two photos: he is tall and handsome; she is medium and feminine.
    As mentioned in your reply to Theresa,it's probably very popular with female audience.

  3. I haven't heard of this one, but I'm kind of over the whole vampire trend. After I finish the last season of The Originals, I'm swearing off vampires for good. I swear... :)
