THE VAMPIRE DIARIES MATT DONOVAN: USELESS CHARACTER?
There’s an article up on BuddyTV titled “5 Ways to Make Matt Interesting on The Vampire Diaries”, and the reason for the article is explained is:
“While I don’t mind Matt being alive, the truth is that there’s no real reason for it. More than any other character on The Vampire Diaries, Matt serves no purpose.

One of the most obvious things about Matt is that he’s one of only two main characters left who are unaware of the supernatural, and aside from his little mind-whammy from Katherine over the course of Plan B and Masquerade, he’s not really been consciously drawn into that world.

Writing and producing duo Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain, who were behind both “The Vampire Diaries” and “Angel,” are spearheading the effort with screenwriter Andrew Miller penning the pilot.

NEW PROMO FOR SUPERNATURAL ‘FAMILY MATTERS’
Check out the new promo for the next episode of Supernatural.
I have to agree, keeping Matt oblivious to the supernatural happenings around him lends a human quality to the show that would be missing otherwise. The whole Katherine mind massage takeover story line could not have happened had Matt been aware. What are your thoughts? Do you think Matt is a useless character?
Do you think another series based on L.J. Smith characters will be as huge a hit as Vampire Diaries?
