  • Team Klaus-Haley

    I love the show. But there are just too many love triangles/squares in it. every character seems to have a romantic relationship with at least 2 other characters.

    I think the writers should clear their minds and finally decide who is perfect for who.

    the show needs a central/focus love team, much like TVD, and I think it should be Haley & Klaus. A love triangle would be a bit distasteful since they have a child and it has already been done by TVD.

    I would want Klaus and Haley to just hook up and fall in this deep, passionate, dependent relationship in an, us vs the world style. that everyone just has to deal with this scary power couple and others wanting to destroy their relationship to like lessen/divide their power.

    And I think there are just too many strong characters in the story, there should be a defined heroine and hero in the story and everyone else should just fall in supporting roles. so I think getting rid of Cami and Davina and keeping them away is a great move.

    I think this show has a lot of potential, I would hate to see it go because of bad ratings.

    I hope they get the writers get their thing together.
  • Seoson 4 (my thoughts)

    They are not cancelling anything. They just got rid of excess baggage. This show will fast forward 20 years or so. Granted this is my opinion, but Hope will have grown, Haley finally finds some cures and they will dig Klaus out. Got rid of Davina cause she ages. Got rid of the cop cause he ages. Cammie does not age so I do not know why to get rid of her. But in general everything will be alright. Sort of. There is still Marcel to deal with and who know what Vincent will become, but in general an interesting 4th season it shall be.
  • My favorite show

    I love the originals they're always on the move I hope this shows doesn't get cancelled because it would be really devastating
  • Stupidity

    I really think that most of the characters in TO is stupid, sure they have made stupid things and great enemies in the past but all(but Vincent) seem to miss that almost every bad thing that has happened have been the works of the ancectors not the Michaelssons. So I hope this will work, not holding my breath though.
  • No peace for Klaus

    why kill Cami character ?so disappointed.....
  • How i got my ex back

    I want to share my great experience to the whole world about how i got my lover back. I promise to share this testimony all over the world once my boyfriend return back to me, and today with all due respect i want to thank Lord Alika for bringing joy and happiness to my relationship and my family. I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is real and genuine. I never believed in any of these things until i loosed my boyfriend, I required help until i found a grate spell caster, And he cast a love spell for me, and he assured me that I will get my boyfriend back in two days after the spell has been cast. two days later, my phone rang, and so shockingly, it was my boyfriend who has not called me for past 6 months now, and made an apology for the heart break, and told me that he is ready to be my back bone till the rest of his life with me. Lord Alika released him up to know how much i loved and wanted him. And opened his eyes to picture how much we have share together. As I'm writing this testimony right now I'm the most happiest girl on earth and me and my boyfriend is living a happy life and our love is now stronger than how it were even before our break up. So that's why I promised to share my testimony all over the thanks goes to Lord Alika for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in situation you are undergoing a heart break, and I assure you that as he has done mine for me, she will definitely help you too. or call him +2348072718865

  • why ruin the plot???

    When you watch both the vampire diaries and the originals, they just keep ruining two good shows!! I hope this was a glimps of the future and not what will acutally happen!! I am refering to the scene where the waitress sais klaus has been gone for 3 years.... klaus is the heart of the show... so i hope they are not taking him out of the show!
  • Change the day.

    Plz change the day too friday....
  • Best Show On TV Right Now

    There have been very few TV Series or even movies where I do not pause for a second to critique the acting, the plot, or the choice of actor for a role but The originals straight up hypnotizes me. The direction of the series seems infinite and the writing decisions made have been outstanding. Nothing bothers me more then predictability and a feud between the bloodlines which stems from VPD was a ingenious tangent rather then go with another dead relative !!!!! Thank you for an hour away from reality once a week......
  • Luv Baby Hope

    She is walking now AWWW! Great Show!
  • great show.

    I love this show. More Bloody and mature than vampire Diaries though the writers need to come up with a new threat. Seriously this show has strongest, most cunning, Bad As*** on Tv and they need a better challenge.

    I like Elijah and I just have to say everytime an arrogant A H taunts him that he can't get to them he proves them wrong with class.
  • Love hate relationship

    I absolutely love to hate Klaus.
  • Better Show then Vampire Diaries

    Watching This Show just Bcoz of the Bad Boy Klaus :)
  • Klaus Mikaelson#1

    i watch this show just bcz of this an extraordinary
  • Klaus Mikaelson

    This show is amazing. I think what makes it so special is Klaus because there are slight moments when you think he is going to become good and loving, and boom he does something and all you can do is smile and say, That's the Klaus I know. The plots have been outstanding so far. I think the Originals should take a page out TVD most recent season though and somehow find a way to make Klaus even stronger by giving him witch powers making I say it a "tribred" wolf, vampire, and witch. Thus making him even more immortal than he is now. Cause let's be the real, the witches are still the most powerful and makes them a worthy adversary, but their tactics are just boring.
  • Klaus

    EVERYBODY WHO AGAINST KLAUS IS THE ENEMY! I'm upset with Elijah such a disappointment he had me fooled that's what I get tho KLAUS be righttt even when he seem so wrong they gonna get Hope taken with they STUPID ASSES!!! I legit cried I love Klaus. Ugh his siblings suck right now ahhhh lmfao when Fraya turn out to be everything Klaus said she is. Daliah wanted everybody against Klaus so did Fraya shocking.....
  • Amazing Show

    Its An amazing serious even better than TVD

  • So tired of all the whining!

    I liked it so much better when Klaus was a threat and not a whiny child having tantrums. I mean I like the show and watch it faithfully every week, but it seems to have gotten so far off the mark from what TVD had built this original family up to be and I am disappointed.

    It's sad that I was kinda glad Klaus got staked tonight. Maybe the writers will make him be more bad ass when the dagger is removed from his chest.

    I really hope the writers step it up soon. Kinda hope Caroline will show up all emotions off and crazy to spritz things up in Klaus' world :)
  • Far Superior to The Vampire Diaries

    I've seen a few episodes of TVD but haven't been too impressed by them. The Originals is almost like a completely different show, confined to New Orleans, as it takes the best characters from its parent show and gives them an excellent series, with twists, turns and unpredictable moments happening more than once per episode. It's one of the strongest shows on the CW and each episode just gets better and better.

    You don't have to be familiar with TVD to check this show out as well, as I wasn't when I gave it a go. Addictive, compelling and enthralling, The Originals is well worth a try if you're looking for something different to its parent series.
  • why do they tease us

    i wish they wouldn't tease us by making us wait so long for the originals episodes I get very frustrated and why don't they make more to air the episodes twice a week or something grrrrr
  • I really love this show

    First off you really don't need to have watched the Vampire Dairies to follow this show or really get into it. It may help but not necessary. I love the fact that this show is based out of New Orleans and how it brings the New Orleans culture to life with the vampires, witches, and of course werewolves. Having lived in New Orleans for 4 years believe me they got this spot on especially the cemeteries. The story line and character development is great and it keeps you on your toes and on the edge of your seat. The news development with Klause's and Haley's daughter is awesome can't wait to find out what powers the baby has if she lives. The arrival of Aunt Dahlia is almost here. Wow they really know how to keep the suspense and drama coming in this series. Over all I would recommend this TV series to anyone.
  • Really enjoying this show

    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!
  • The Originals Show. A Very Nice Show.

    This is a show whereby a family swore to each other to remain together forever.

    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...
  • The Originals Voice Acting!!! SEE THE PUN :)

    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.
  • Good show

    Good show.
  • Originally the Originals!

    Exceptional season 01, outstanding return for season 2!

    This show stands up to its title! It's an Original masterpiece!
  • Part of out lives along with Tvd of course

    Miss Julie Plec if u can hear we want some real always amazing match..
  • Much better

    Than tvd , i have been watching tvd for years but originals , just so cool , dark ,reasonable conversations , proper music and badass characters.
  • Call me naive...

    But I was expecting the Buffy-Angel relation when I heard of a Vampire Diaries spin-off. It's just a piece of crap spitting out an even worse piece of crap.
