Debuting in early March '07, this series was introduced on the Trope Vision Network ([=TVn=]) to tap into the growing demographic of fans of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', ''Literature/HarryPotter'', and ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' who are pretty sure they can work up an example -- somehow, anyhow -- of a given trope from their show.[[note]] Don't be offended. We are all {{otaku}} of one sort or the other here. This is meant to be an in-joke, where all of us who have spammed the wiki with citations from our favorite show/genre can poke fun at ourselves.[[/note]]

The show developed an interesting multi-verse through the novel use of a [[FramingDevice framing device]], in which the intrepid heroes (The "Vamp Benders", among fans) would pass through a Story Gate at the beginning of each episode, landing them in surroundings and situations familiar to television viewers the world over. Classic episodes ("A Three Hour Tour" and "My So-Called Felicity") aired, giving rise to a fan [[EpilepticTrees theory]] that the Story Gate is in reality a [[HardLight Holodeck]] of some sort.

Producers are, of course, keeping mum on the controversy, but promising that all will eventually be revealed.

Though the immensely popular [[SpinOff tie-in comics and novels]] seem to be leaning in [[AdaptationDecay different]] [[AdaptationDistillation directions]] for the plot line, the series seems to be ignoring both and going along its own line.

Their mentor was Mr Edwin Rupert Udite, a retired English scientist with a long white beard who mysteriously disappeared, wheelchair and all, several years ago. Every week he sends them self-destructing cryptic messages which inevitably lead to the gang getting tangled up in the Dark Council's latest plot.

The series is currently well into its third season, with many a surprising twist. An episode in the third season resulted in a spin off. Though small at first, the show is slowly building up a separate fan base. Find it below.

For more information on the Dark Council, see AATAFOVS/EvilDramatisPersonae.

The show is actually a Finnish-American co-production, and is unique in that it has three executives for every one writer.

The series has a vast AlternateRealityGame accessible from its [[HomePage official website]]. This game has received criticism from fans that certain parts are impossible without buying the [[GuideDangIt official guide]].
