We had an epiphany earlier this week: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Vampire Diaries and True Blood are all the same show (structurally speaking). All three vampire series are about an impossibly attractive and moderately magical heroine from small-town America who must balance the demands of friends and family with her problematic feelings for not one, but two sexy local vampires: a broody good one with an itchy conscience and a snarky bad one who likes to, um, eat women.
So, between now and Halloween, we'll be pitting the casts of our three favorite vampire shows (sorry, Moonlight) against each other in a little fan challenge we're calling Vampire Wars. We're setting up fights between characters from BTVS, TVD and TB in five competitions over the coming days, and the best out of five wins. You have to vote early and often in all five categories if you want your show to take home the trophy.
First up, tell us which vampire-show leading lady is tops: Buffy, Elena or "Sookeh" Stackhouse...
Hit the poll above, and then tell us in the comments why Buffy kicks Sookie's ass, or why Elena is your dark-horse candidate! Want to play again? Check back soon for the remaining four categories! (Got any ideas for another category, and want to make it best out of seven? Email us with a comparison poll we haven't thought of yet!)
