My Latest TV Show Addiction: The Originals
So, I have this tendency to get hopelessly addicted to shows on Netflix (and Hulu…and wherever LOL). I discover them in all manner of ways and once I get past the first or second episode, I end up binge watching an entire season. Although, I’m not quite through season 1 (so no spoilers please haha!), I’ve been seriously into The Originals. It’s a show that airs on CW, but is also streamed via Hulu (season 2) and Netflix (season 1) which is where I’ve been watching it.
Ironically, I thought it was stupid in the beginning, but it’s a slippery slope, I guess. I’m sitting there going, “this is so stupid” *clicks next episode.* And next thing you know, I’m on episode 45. This is how it happens, people!
Anyway, onto what the hell the show is about since I’m all into it now! In a nutshell, it’s about vampires living in New Orleans. “The Originals” are 3 siblings who are said to be the original vampires. There are other vampires in town along with witches, werewolves, and humans and everyone is battling for power.
I don’t want to give too much away because it’s pretty awesome, but if you enjoy vampire films and TV shows, you’ll probably enjoy this! It reminds me a lot of nostalgic 90’s and early 2000’s vampire films. There’s a layer of cheesiness, but a good story and interesting characters. It’s more story-oriented than sex-oriented (like True Blood) which is something I like. Sex for the sake of ratings is something I find really dumb, but I digress. Also, Faye from The Secret Circle is in it and that’s what originally put me onto the show so if you liked her in The Secret Circle, this is another good TV show to tune into! Another thing I love about this show is that it’s set in New Orleans, the costumes are awesome, and the music is AMAZING. Since it’s so awesome, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite songs from season 1 of the show for you guys to check out so I hope you enjoy!
