The Originals is an American television series that is a spin off from the popular show The Vampire Diaries.
In this spin off the focus is primarily on the lives of the Mikaelson family, Klaus and his four siblings, Elijah, Rebekah, Kol and Finn. The show is based in New Orleans, where Klaus used to rule in the quarter. However, now the inhabitants are ruled by his old protégé Marcel, causing some friction between the two as Klaus is determined to reclaim what is his, and will stop at nothing to get it. The show explores the relationships and feuds between those of the supernatural world; the witches, the werewolves and the vampires. In this show you can expect to see a lot of blood, a lot of suffering and a lot of death; it really is some good television.

Whether you’ve seen The Vampire Diaries or not, you can still watch this series and appreciate it as it’s own stand-alone show. Yes, there are some cross-overs during the four seasons, but as they aren’t major ones; you can still follow the story as they do them quite well. So, if you haven’t yet seen this series I would definitely recommend it. In the first three seasons there are twenty two episodes and in the fourth there are only thirteen episodes, but this is more than enough material to sink your teeth into. And what better time to do it than now? With the first episode of season five airing recently in America, it gives you plenty of time to get through them all. So what are you waiting for? Get ready. Get set. BINGE.
