We Liked: The Originals was definitely made for the guys to enjoy too. I love the gripping story along with the increased action and something always happening between the vampires, werewolves and witches; now also the Originals.

We Disliked: Some scenes are overacted and overdramatic. Does not happen too often but there are those times.

Our Final Take: 4 / 5 Good

The Originals (2013)

Synopsis: A spin-off from The Vampire Diaries and set in New Orleans, The Originals centers on the Mikaelson siblings, otherwise known as the world's original vampires: Klaus (Joseph Morgan), Elijah (Daniel Gillies), and Rebekah (Claire Holt). Now Klaus must take down his protégé, Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), who is now in charge of New Orleans, in order to re-take his city, as he originally built New Orleans. Klaus departed from the city after being chased down by his father Mikael, while it was being constructed and Marcel took charge. As Klaus has returned after many years, his ego has provoked him to become the king of the city. "Every King needs an heir" says Klaus, accepting the unborn child. The child is a first to be born to a hybrid (part vampire, part werewolf) and a werewolf (Hayley).
