It's truly a shame Claire Holt (who plays Rebekah Mikaelson) has left the series, she was by far one of my favorite actors/actresses on the show. Wikipedia says it may not be a permanent decision, so hopefully we will see more of her character in the future.

Totally agree with Renier on this subject. TVD got boring, because of all the drama that's always going on with Elena. They are vampires, stop degrading them. Know ima get alot of crap for this, but it reminds me of Twilight(which is strongly dislike). Then you have T.O's series. Drama? yes a bit, but that is followed by vamps, ww's, and more vamp, and someone dying P: . 2 thumbs up for T.O's

There are obviously lots of vampires. If you like lots of vampires, you can't be wrong.

I am not into vampire shows or werewolfs or witches. I saw this on here when it first came out and when I read that it was a spin-off from The Vampire Diaries, I immediately lost interest. Finally decided to watch the first episode and now I am hooked. Great show great cast , only 2 episodes into it and cannot wait to see what comes next.

Wow can this show get any better?? YES it does. each weeks episode surpasses the last. Wow what is happening to the Witches? So much for following nature and all things good. They are no better than politicians..all they seek is power at any cost. Downright Bitches! Hurting Rebecca the way they have. She is one of the good guys..The Witches have this holier than thou attitude. Like the saying goes.Let He who is without sin cast the 1st stone...Ya they are far from innocent and they walk around like their s*** don't stink hurting anyone and anything that makes the mistake of getting in their way...and what is worse is they have no problems killing one of their own..♥♥♥ 10/10 ♥♥♥

If the series keeps its ratings steady, then there is no reason why the CW wouldn’t renew it for a second season. The Originals currently averages a 1.0 rating in the coveted 18-49 advertizing demo, and 2.1 million total viewers. At this point, The Originals is definitely heading toward a second season renewal ... i hope so,i love this show,well better than the vampire diaries ..

It's easy to pick up the originals storyline even if you have not watched the vampire diaries but i admit it does make it easier to understand the characters... Klaus is probably the most complex character around but if you don't watch the vampire diaries first you may not see that right away... I enjoy the vampire diaries for what it is but the originals is superior in every way..... The characters are more likeable, the plot is deeper and much darker and above all there is Zero twilight esque teen angst... this is a show about vampires who love being vampires and revel in the darkness...

The Vampire Diaries introduced a story arc that involves Klaus and his plan to make new hybrids using the main girl from the other show. However it seemed that the teen drama aspect wasn't as appealing as the well written story of the Original Vampires. As far as I see it, The Originals was a great concept introduced by a weaker show and so they intelligently made it it's own series.

you don't HAVE to watch tvd technically. but i'd 99.9999% say that you'd like it better and understand it better if you did watch tvd first. it gives you not only the backstory to who the characters are and where they come from but all the mythology about the TVD world's vampires that you're just not going to get unless you have seen TVD. there's SO MUCH to it. good show though! i like it.

Could someone explain to me, what spin-off to Vampire Diaries means? I don't or never have watched Vampire Diaries nor any other vampire shows, but this looks interesting. If I started to watch this..would I be missing a storyline because I am not familiar with Vampire Diaries? Thanks in advance :) <3

The Originals outwit, outshine, outkill, outplot and even outscript the Vampire Diaries. I was getting so sick and tired of Elena crying every f'n episode about her woes. Girl needs to grow a pair. What a breath of fresh air the show The Originals are. They don't sit around and cry--they get s#$% done! As much as I miss Damon--Klaus and Elijah make up for the lost eye candy. I think this show will outlast TVP.

I'm really digging the new show. much better than TVD. i was getting tired of the whole having to save Elena's life, and Elena drama shit. that was getting old. at a point TVD was only good because of the other characters not the whole Elena, damon, stefan drama.

If you are a true Orinials fan, and you haven't watched TVD, you should at least skim through S3 of TVD. It covers so much. Waking Rebecka, his hybrid army, the return of his whole family including both parents, falling for Caroline, the war with the Salvatores, how they became vampires, and the epic scene where Klaus finally faces his father after 1000 years of running just shouldn't be missed.
