Synopsis:
This sexy and spellbinding new series centres on the Original vampire family and the dangerous vampire/werewolf hybrid, Niklaus "Klaus" Mikaelson, who, along with his siblings Elijah and Rebekah, helped build New Orleans' French Quarter, only to be exiled a century ago. But a coven of witches desperate to reclaim its power lures the Mikaelsons back to their ancestral home, where the charismatic and diabolical vampire Marcel - Klaus' former protege - rules with his vampire army.
The Originals bring along caskets full of revenge, unrequited love and not-so-secret plans to reclaim the heart and soul of this thriving city, and a long-smoldering war between vampires, witches, wolves and humans soon erupts. Blood ties are strong, but the lust for power - and revenge - may prove stronger. Watch all 22 thrilling episodes starring the most compelling creatures of them all: The Originals'.

Lame and contrived - The Originals: Series 1 review by JR

Spoiler Alert
11/06/2015

I admit I didn't watch the whole series because this is dreadful juvenile rubbish. Cheesy script, no imagination, contrived rubbish.

Somehow it kept me wanting to know how it would end - The Originals: Series 1 review by KW

Spoiler Alert
26/09/2018

Cheesy script, ketchup running like water, some of the most ham acting I have seen in ages and yet I stuck it out to see just how the scriptwriter could conjure up an ending. Not a series I can recommend, and I can't think the city of New Orleans would be happy with it as well!
