[TV REVIEW] ‘The Originals’ is Phenomenal!

Cast of 'The Originals'There has only been three episodes of ‘The Originals’, the spinoff of The CW hit series ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ and I’m seriously hooked. The story is full of diabolic scheming, intense rivalry between the characters and deliciously evil. I wasn’t a fan of Klaus when he was on ‘The Vampire Diaries’ because he was such an annoying asshole but now I actually like him a little bit. The main antagonist, Marcel, is actually more devious than Klaus!!

I love the drama and power dynamic in this show. The sibling rivalry of the original vampires mixed in the witches’ war with Marcel just makes this show so intriguing. Marcel is so smooth, power hungry and sly that he truly gives Klaus a run for his money. They might not be physically equals but in terms of the power they command, both are a force to be reckoned with.

I can’t wait to see where this show goes. With many relationships and complexities intertwining, it’s building into a beautiful tapestry.
