The concept of vampires has evolved quite a bit since Bram Stoker first introduced the idea more than a century ago.

The first known film adaptation is the truly frightening 1922 German interpretation, "Nosferatu". Then in 1931 Universal Studios introduced us to the all-time classic movie "Dracula" starring Bela Lugosi. Several sequels followed for a few years until audience interest waned. Then in the late 1950's, the United Kingdom's Hammer Films picked up the ball (or should I say stake), with a series of Dracula films starring the great Christopher Lee and often Peter Cushing too. Then there was another lull in vampires movies until the 1970's as stated above.

The transition in more recent vampire films and television shows to a younger, more sexually active "undead" is certainly a welcome change. Let's not leave out the beautiful Robert Pattinson or Paul Wesley from any possible joint venture involving all the current popular male vampires. That would be an orgy of activity undreamed of even in the imaginative mind of Bram Stoker!

Stoker did not introduce the idea of the Vampire to us, it has existed as long as Humans have told stories. The Mythos of the Vampire is diverse and Universal. The "Vampire Diaries" however are not connected to any Mythos, has no redeaming qualities and is just a Soap Opera with "vampires". The old series "Dark Shadows" did it better and had more mood, heart and depth than this turkey will ever have. Just because they use young and beautiful actors doesn't make it good! The "Twilight" books and movies are just as bad. I dont know why you can't do young vampires without the human melodrama and pettyness. These vampires have no soul and are just spoiled teens playing at being bad!
