Vampires return to network TV

The second season of The Vampire Diaries premieres tonight on the CW. In the right frame of (juvenile) mind, this is an entertaining if somewhat sullen alternative to the foolish Twilight movies (glitter vampires, really?). I'm hoping season 2 will maintain the scarier tone established in the last few episodes, all due of course to Entertainment Weekly's winner of the sexiest beast contest, Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhlader).
