Season One of "The Vampire Diaries" is officially over, and if you're someone who dismissed it as just another teen angst vamp lite offering (trust us, it isn't), August 31st will be your chance to see if you were right or not as that's the day Warner Home Video is releasing the Blu-ray and DVD box sets.
First, a short synopsis of the series:
"For over a century, I have lived in secret. Until now. I know the risk, but I have to know her." Dark, brooding, pulsing with blood lust and transcendent with romance, 'The Vampire Diaries' – which started as a series of must-read novels by L.J. Smith – has become a must-watch television hit. Season One offers unforgettable characters, living and undead. They are vampire brothers Stefan and Damon, one good and one evil; Elena, a double for the beauty both brothers loved some 150 years earlier; plus Elena' brother Jeremy, witch-in-training Bonnie, good guy Matt, and more denizens of Mystic Falls, VA. All are caught up in a spellbinding web of secrets, passion, and terror.
All 22 episodes are included plus the following special features:
