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!

    I watched the first couple of episodes of this after it spun off from Vampire Diaries, but I didn’t stick with it. Maybe I should give it another try!

      honestly, it has a slow start. I watched the first 2-3 episodes thinking ” this is so stupid ” lol. but the story got a lot better/ more interesting as it went on and now I’m really into it.

    I’m totally with you, this shoe is great!!!!! Do you know if they have canceled it or not? I thought I heard something to that effect a while back this year </3 It's better than Vampire Diaries.

      yeahhh! I love itt – I hope it’s not cancelled! I saw that season 2 came out late last year, but not sure what the status is now. I just finished season 1…I hope it’s not gone :-/ I haven’t seen Vampire Diaries, but I know people are obsessed with that show too haha

      haha I know! I’m starting to think that too lol. what other shows do you watch? I need a list! Shows I recommend (just in case you’re not already watching haha) – Lost Girl (seasons 1-4 are on netflix while 5 is in progress), Orphan Black (I stream via Itunes as I don’t have cable), Misfits (hulu all seasons), Grimm, This Is England (find online), Peaky Blinders (netflix), and I just started watching Turn which is pretty good if you enjoy history! Alongside season 2 of The Originals – trying to catch up lol

    I’ve never watched this show, but I too get hooked on a series and watch it all the way through, then I am hankering for the next episode…ARG! Sadly I may get to the end and find it’s cancelled. I hate that!!!

      omg me too! I hate discovering a show is cancelled after one season – that always sucks! This one goes on for at least 2 seasons (as far as I know) and it’s really good!

    My husband and I have just binge watched the fifth season of ‘Game of Thrones’ and now we have to wait until next year for the sixth season. I’m sure we’ll find something else to watch in the meantime 🙂

      omg I need to watch it! yess! Definitely do! also, if you have netflix and Hulu, these are also amazing ones: Lost Girl, iZombie, Grimm, Misfits (if you enjoy raunchy Brit humor), Peaky Blinders, and Orphan Black (though this is only online, on BBC America, or via iTunes).
