I have never seen a show like this. The way they created the vampire creatures is awesome. They have fangs, but their faces don't look like they aged 100 years every time their fangs come out like is Buffy the vampire slayer, and the vampires don't sparkle with creepy red eyes like in twilight. Awesome work. I ❤ Phoebe Tonkin, Daniel Gillies and Claire Holt, btw.

I'll start by saying, when they first appeared on The Vampire Diaries I didn't really like them. They were cruel and evil. Having them leave tvd to do their own show was the best decision yet! On the originals, it lets you get to know the real them. You get to see that they arent that bad or that evil after all. They're just like every other vampire/hybrid out there.. just stronger. They have feelings, they get hurt, they get happy, etc. I recommend this show. I really do.
