This… this… Vampire Academy…  what?  The only thing more unbelievable than the fact that this show exists is the fact that it’s called Vampire Academy.  Talk about not burying the lead, huh?  Why not just call it, Harry Potter, But With Vampires!  This is the stupidest, most ridiculous, laziest flaming pile of feces that I’ve ever heard of.  This idea makes Percy Jackson look original and classy.  This is the very worst the vampire craze could ever get and surely a sign that nearly every vampire possibility can be exploited.  I assume they’ll get even more lazy the next time and just go straight up Vampires in Space, Like, You Know, Star Wars – But With Vampires.
