Embracing a Healthy Family: The Vampire Diaries: The Complete Second Season on DVD

The Vampire Diaries: The Complete Second Season on DVD





The second season of The Vampire Diaries on DVD/Blu-Ray has some extra bonuses that might make you wanting more.  I love the bonus feature material on movies because it can provide more insight into the movie itself, sometimes they show interviews and of course, who doesn't like gags?   It's always the little bonus gift for buying the movie as a thank you in my opinion.  The second season of The Vampire Diaries was full of all the drama you love along with some romance with the two hunky boys.  After a season full of surprises, the special features was the icing on the cake.


The gag reel is my favorite as it's always funny to see others mess up during their lines.  Not sure why but it seems like it's human nature to laugh when someone falls provided they aren't hurt.  Seeing the slips, the running into things and the set falling apart gives a little depth into the characters and the show.  Of course seeing them fumble their words only proves they are human and not the flawless actors we see.



Special Features Include:
  • Pages of the Wolf: 3 Featurettes – The Myth & The Mystery (Werewolf Lore), Building the Beasts (Working with Actual and Mechanical Wolves) and Howling at the Moon (Michael Trevino’s Transformative Makeup Process)
  • Her Own Worst Enemy…Elena, Catherine and Nina!: Nina Dobrev Rises to the Challenge of Playing Two Roles
  • The Perfect Love Triangle: Vampires, Werewolves, Witches: Setting the Record Straight on Who’s Nibbling on Whom for the First Two Seasons
  • Unaired Scenes
  • Audio Commentary on “Masquerade” With Executive Producers Kevin Williamson & Julie Plec
  • Second Bite AKA Gag Reel




The special features also provided a great look into the creation of one actor portraying two people.  That is always a cool trick that doesn't really provide a good understanding on how difficult it is to pull off not only from the camera people and the editing crew but also the actors.  Nina Dobrev's role is one in which she plans two characters and how painstakingly difficult it is.  The feature shows how it is done and how hard it must be for an actor to be able to shift gears and act against a person not there.  It was probably my second favorite part of the bonus material.  I'm sure many would opt for the featurettes given the popularity of werwolfs!


It's a great bonus in purchasing the second season.
