“The Vampire Diaries” and “House” are among the newest titles arriving on the Blu-ray high definition format this week.

“The Vampire Diaries: The Complete First Season” (Warner Brothers, 2009-10, $69.97) is another in the growing list of TV shows and movies that have sparked something of a pop vampire craze. Many of these productions attempt to show that vampires are just like anyone else, with the exception of being cursed with a bloodlust.

This one takes place in the town of Mystic Falls, where teenager Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrey) is trying to put her life back together after the death of her parents. She finds comfort in the friendship with a new student, Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley). Unknown to her, Stefan is a vampire who is trying hard to keep his desires under control.

She eventually discovers the truth when Stefan’s evil brother Damon (Ian Somerhalder) arrives in town. Damon has no problem with his vampire ways and is intent on causing plenty of trouble while claiming Elena for himself. The battle is on between the two brothers.

The show is based on a series of books by L.J. Smith. Among the extras are deleted scenes, a gag reel and featurettes “Into Mystic Falls” and “A New Breed of Vampires.” The four-disc set includes 22 episodes.
