I only started watching the series because I thought it would provide the same unintentional laughs “Twilight” did. At first, the plot even seemed lazily similar to that of “Twilight”: mopey human girl Elena meets broody vampire Stefan and falls in love, while mysterious “animal attacks” plague their gloomy small town of Mystic Falls.

In case you missed it or didn’t feel like sitting through four hours of TV, here’s our compilation of the night’s most exciting moments.
