Friend recommended it so I started watching this with my wife. First episode I was like "wtf? this is stupid and cheesy... and some things are just a total rip-off of Twilight" Yet.... there was something about it I really did like. So we watched two more episodes.
The plot started thickening up. Characters started to develop. Also the producers are very good at shocking, cliff-hanger, endings so you HAVE to see the next episode!
We're hooked now! We put on an episode or two now before we go to sleep and it's really starting to get very interesting. Yeah... it's still a little cheesy at times... it's not like Rome where it's sheer epic awesomeness at every moment.... but it's a great waste of time before we go to sleep =)
If you reply... please don't post any spoilers!
