The Originals is a Spin-Off from The Vampire Diaries, I fell in love with the original family on TVD and I followed them to their series, it's another of my favorite series, I love the supernatural. Why do we love bad boys so much? Klaus is bad but I love him, he is my favorite but the way he is with his daughter is beautiful.

The series "The Originals" is produced in the United States and broadcast on the CW Network in the country of origin, and in Brazil it is aired on MTV on closed TV. It is derived from the series "The Vampire Diaries", which is also broadcast by CW. As it is also portrayed in "TVD", in "TO" the fictional theme is based on the history of supernatural beings like witches, werewolves and vampires.

The interesting part of this show, even more so for anyone who has ever watched or even watched The Vampire Diaries, is that the series will focus on the plotting that revolves around the family of the first vampires in the world. The original vampire family, named Mikaelson, consists of Niklaus, Rebekah, Elijah, Freya, Kol and Finn, these being the children. But apart from vampires other people are close to these powerful beings, such as Hayley Marshal, Davina Claire, Camille O'Connel and Marcel Gerard.

The plot begins when Klaus returns to his hometown of New Jersey. He is threatened by a witch clan. After his arrival in the city, the revolts, adventures, attacks and fighting between supernatural beings become more frequent. With each episode we are faced with a different danger. Old threats surround the Mikaelson family. The patriarchs and creators of the beings of the night return in thrilling and angry episodes, with much adventure, adrenaline and emotion in this fantastic world.

Hayley, who already had an affair with Klaus, became pregnant with the protagonist. Hayley's pregnancy and her position toward the New Jersey werewolves cause great distress in the relationship between sucking beings and those of the full moon. There are always, in the seasons of "TO" some question that will fragment the groups. Witches, vampires and werewolves in constant friction. But not everyone joins the revolt, there is also the peaceful coexistence between these different species.

In addition to much adventure and excitement, in the series we can find a good romance, love triangle and a striking fraternal relationship between the originals. Between "tapas and kisses" is what can define the relationship between the original vampires, who are always in contradiction. But in the background, everyone loves everyone, and what they preserve, however unlike it, is the defense and unity of the family.

Something that is rewarding when watching the attraction is that we are watching a production with an intriguing, well written plot and with excellent actors that will embody in their characters and provide the best for those who are watching. As in the "mother series", the surprises are present in "TO" and the episodes are very good.
About one's personality, well, that's one of the strengths. As in Klaus, we face a character totally without understanding, because it happens as the strong and head of the family, but there are moments that demonstrate a hybrid (being a vampire and werewolf) fragile. There is a frequent loss of sanity and compassion in Klaus, leaving him as one of the most famous bipolar characters on TV (laughs).

Elijah is the heartthrob, there's no denying it. It's amazing how the character does not lose the elegance even in times of struggle. He is optimistic, determined and very strong. There's something about him that messes with Hayley, and vice versa. However, with the arrival of werewolf Jackson, with whom he marries the hybrid Hayley, everything changes. There are unforgettable scenes that are exciting, vivid and with the power to make you cry, laugh, finally, to enter the little screen and experience the moment. Like wonderful scenes like this, it's the marriage between Jackson and Hayley, it's perfect!

With the constant dangers that the family of the originals passes, a personage who does not remain long in the air is Rebekah. I think that's a pity, because I really like your way and your presence in New Jersey. The witch Davina Claire and Marcel Gerard are friends, and will always be very influential in the face of adversity in the city.
Camille O'Connel, therapist and human, is one of the only people, or rather the only human who gets attention and control from Klaus Mikaelson. The two live good times, good conversations, but few kisses. A pity, but nothing is lost even because it is not over yet and I await more kisses between Klaus and Camille.
What will happen even in the series will not tell, and in principle this is not my goal when reviewing a series for the blog. I intend with my reviews to present a little bit, a little of what is presented in the series I watch, leaving my opinion on such programs. So, I recommend you the series "The Originals", it's worth watching, it's very engaging and you'll want to see it all the time.

I await you in my next posts. Kisses
