Last week as I was watching the latest episode of Vampire Diaries (in my sweats trying to convince myself no one has ever died from a cold), I noticed something odd.
There is not one single ugly or overweight person on the show. Not even a token plain BFF by which to measure the beauty of all others. Even the parents are gorgeous. Ok, except for this guy:
And I’m not sure he counts because he technically does not live in Mystic Falls. He just visits to cause trouble.
I can buy the idea of vampires, werewolves, hybrids, witches, and ghosts. But no ugly people? And no one eating one too many cheeseburgers? Come on.
Also why is it than when someone does escape from this town and disappears for years…they end up only a short drive away? Is there some interstate time warp that’s not being mentioned?
I’m just asking. And I sort of blame these questions on the frame of mind I was in at the time. Hopped up on cold meds isn’t a happy place. But now I am back to my old self! This may or may not be a good thing.
And of course, this rant in no way diminishes my love for all things VD.
