I can't be the only one watching this show? Spin off of the Vampire Diaries . Premiered on Thusday, 10/3/13 Show's on Tuesday.
Right now, I prefer it to Vampire Diaries.
The Originals dispenses with the teen-bopper stuff and delivers adult fare.
IMO, the best new show this season.
I'd also like to know why the most powerful teenage witch of all time has the hots for a vampire, since they're supposed to be mortal enemies.
After further consideration, I guess the thing that bugs me most about this show is that Klaus is such a one-dimensional character. He worked well as a villain, but as a protagonist, he's kind of dull. He's too predictable, and I can't see his plans for world domination making for a compelling show in the long term. He needs to significantly grow as a character over the first season, or we're going to be stuck watching him try and fail to be dastardly week after week.
We have seen his "soft" side on VD and how it gets him into trouble in one way or another.
This part of the Klaus, Rebecca, and Elijah characters needs to be front and center if the show is to last.
Great to see Elijah back in the mix.
Klaus expressed his true self tonite and Elijah reminded everyone what he really is.
Enjoyed the humor opening the show too.
Marcel is coming dangerously close to losing his head.
At this point, I don't know why The Originals don't kill every witch within a thousand miles of Bourbon Street.
THEIR world would certainly be a better place.
I seem to remember the dread just the mention of the names inspired in the Vampire Dairies.
So good to see Elijah back in action.
I'm actually enjoying this show MORE than the Vampire Diaries. And although Klaus has been, until now, the most dangerous Original for his ruthlessness, I think Elijah is more dangerous and possibly more powerful than Klaus.
He is more noble, but man, that display in the church was more frightening than anything I've seen from Klaus. That was just crazy.
The only thing that's bothering me is Cammy, as her side story seems superfluous at this point, so I'm not sure why she's still around. I hope something happens to make her more important, as right now she's just this show's Matt equivalent as the obligatory human who's gotten caught up in all of the supernatural drama.
I've been pretty disappointed with this season of The Vampire Diaries, but The Originals is improving week-to-week. Elijah is older than Klaus, so it would make sense if he was stronger, but I think he just likes being flashy when he kills, since he's usually so restrained.
Regarding the witches, I find it amusing that neither this nor the parent show have any warlocks. Do the witches reproduce through fission?
IIRC, in the Vampire Diaries it was stated witches have human fathers and magic descends thru the female line.
Niklaus father was a Werewolf. His mother cheated and he's was the family only Hybrid when mom made vamps. Elijah is his older brother and as he said that's why he so protective towards Niklaus, When dad beat Nik, Elijah did nothing to stop him.
They just had a male Witches (yep Warlock is a Hollywood term) on VD last night. Had at least 3 with the oldest being Silas. They even had a few the week before when wolf baby mamma was attacked in the swamp.
"Nowadays, you can just click a button and buy a book, meet your spouse or ruin someone's life. Sometimes those last two are the same thing." John Oliver.
BTW, good episode last night....probably best of the year.
Still on-board with Dracula, but I have put it on a thin leash.
That being said there are ways to deal with that. Chop em up , bury parts all over the world come to mind
That's the thing that's bothered me most about the originals since their introduction. They're supposed to be impossible to kill, but nobody has even though of beheading them. Their skin isn't made of steel or anything, so surely they couldn't survive that, unless they're like Homunculi, and their dismembered parts turn to dust and return to their bodies.
Is Tyler going to become a main character of The Originals, now that he's left TVD? I haven't seen any official announcements of him joining the cast, but that would seem to be the direction they're going.
