We have been long-time fans of the CW series, The Vampire Diaries. We could not have been happier when the CW announced their TVD spin-off, The Originals. An entire show devoted to Klaus, Elijah, and Rebecca? Yes, please! Did we mention Elijah? #eyecandy #itsallabouttheaccent
So far the season has been so much better than we expected. It's the best 42 minutes of our week!...watching the latest episode on the CW's website for Kelli and Hulu for Nat.
Besides the intricate plot, the excellent acting, the exquisite wardrobe, oh, and ELIJAH, The Originals has a more mature feel than TVD and we love that.
While watching the mid-season finale---seriously, we have to wait a month for new episodes?---we came to several realizations:
- ELIJAH IS OUR NEW DAMON. Enough said. #hashtagthat
- I want to be dressed by the wardrobe people on this show. I love how they dress Rebecca and Cami in those loose, flowy tops. They would really help camouflage my baby bump (which I still have after giving birth 2.5 years ago).
- Despite my avowed declaration to hate him, Klaus is growing on me.
- The Originals is so good, it's making me completely ambivalent about The Vampire Diaries. It's similar to how I felt about Twilight after reading Vampire Academy. This is scary!
