Show Summary

The Originals is a spin-off series originating from The Vampire Diaries. A thousand years ago the Original Vampire family swore to each other that family is power and they pledged to remain together forever. Centuries have passed and the family bonds are broken. Klaus Mikaelson heads to the French Quarter of New Orleans, a city his family helped build. His former protégé, Marcel, is now in control. Elijah follows Klaus to New Orleans where they discover werewolf Haley and a powerful witch named Sophie. Klaus has no intention of answering to his now powerful protégé and is determined to reclaim the city and the power along with reuniting his family. While waiting for Rebekah to join them, Klaus, Elijah and the witches form an uneasy alliance to make sure THE ORIGINALS once again rule New Orleans.

  • Really enjoying this show

    9.5
    I heard that Klaus was supposed to be taken off the Vampire Diaries at the end of the season that he was introduced, but they decided to keep him on since he was so great. I'm really glad they kept the Original Vampire storyline going in Vampire Diaries, and now this spin off. This show is much darker than Vampire Diaries. There are still some sappy characters, but for the most part it has a very good cast. Klaus and Elijah are great as always. I don't want to spoil it, so I'll just say that most of the additional characters in Season 2 are excellent. Awesome show!moreless
  • The Originals Show. A Very Nice Show.

    9.5
    This is a show whereby a family swore to each other to remain together forever.
  • A VAMPIRE STORY -FINALLY- LIVES UP TO ITS TITLE!

    9.0
    Twilight, The Vampire Diaries, True Blood... it has been over a decade since the last time a vampire movie or tv show wasn't centered around a mild, tedious love story between a girl and a boy (or two, or three, with the only spin being that one of them had fangs!

    The Originals finally did it! They broke the "romance spell" and focused on their identity. Of course there is romance in the air, it would have been a pity not to, with such immortal beauty walking around the New Orleans' surreal scenery, but Klaus and Elijah don't put their casual love inerests before their values - no matter how questionable these might be - nor all the universe conspires in helping them to find true love.

    The plot is fast-paced, with funny witty dialogues, action and sentimental moments, when needed and the characters are strictly structured. Thankfully, they don't have weird behavioral and personality changes, in order to support any given episode.

    And a short tribute to our beloved, invincible hybrid: first time I laid eyes on Klaus I admit I was a little sceptical. I thought "Is this angel face boy, with the blond curls and the baby-blue eyes the main villain, the mere mention of whose name makes everyone quiver?". It didn't take me more than two episodes to realise, however, that Joseph Morgan's Klaus is the best fictional vampire after Gary Oldman's Dracula, and that alone speaks volumes...moreless
  • The Originals Voice Acting!!! SEE THE PUN :)

    7.5
    Great Show by it's self but the second season is driving me insane by one small detail. How can i believe that this is there mother when her accent is killing me!!! No one is changing there personality and speech overnight. Kol is more than believable but "Lenore" was it the name of Mikaelsons mother is different story. If the accent was British rather than this Brooklyn or whatever (don't know all slangs or rather accents) then maybe.... English is not my native language but this is what is tormenting me, go figure.moreless
  • Good show

    Good show.
  • OLD BLOOD

    The Originals "I Love You, Goodbye" Review: Death at a Wedding

    Hayley and Jackson got married! And of course a major character died. That's just how this show rolls.

  • OLD BLOOD

    The Originals "The Devil Is Damned" Review: Family Is Power (Literally)

    You know what they say: The family that shouts at each other about loyalty together stays together.
