The Vampire Diaries & The Originals
I didn't see The Originals from last night but watched The Vampire Diaries.

This was okay. The thing with Silas is more interesting than last season. Liked the stuff with Jeremy and Damon. Katherine playing "what if" about being turned back is dumb. College murder mystery is dumb as well. What is going on with Matt? They only had a few scenes and it seemed odd. Looking forward to next week. :bolian:

I will post about The Originals later...was it new or did they air the backdoor pilot again?

Back door + 10 minutes of new material spliced in.

It's all really weak.

That isn't good - no wonder the ratings were bad.

Okay it was adjusted up. But didn't do what Beauty & The Beast a year before?

ETA: They should have aired it on time. TUE at 8PM.

They shouldn't have released it online two months ago.

Actually it was mostly new with a few repeat scenes. THey retold the story of the pilot from Elija's point of view.
I though TVD was OK, but I actually like The Originals more.

Re: The Vampire Diaries & The Originals
It was better than TVD EP...I enjoyed The Originals more too.

Re: The Vampire Diaries & The Originals
I was looking forward to TVD, but then once it started I realized that I was hesitant to even continue with it after the last few episode of last season. I enjoyed this one enough that I'll be sticking with it for the foreseeable future.

Re: The Vampire Diaries & The Originals
Klaus, Elijah and even Rebekah are good...I like Marcel too. I didn't like Phoebe Tonkin on The Secret Circle and I still don't see what she brings here with The Originals.

Fun Fact of the Day:
Phoebe Tonkin (Hayley) and Claire Holt (Rebekah) were two of the three leads in the first two seasons of the Australian teen series, H2O: Just Add Water.

Dish Network is fighting with my CBS and CW. I caught the Originals by watching it on my laptop.

It was not bad. I will have to see how they move on from the pilot.

With Klaus, Elijah and Rebecca on the Originals, I am going to give up on Vampire Diaries. The only character they have left that I cared about at all last season is Caroline.

Re: The Vampire Diaries & The Originals
Since it is two days later, I am going to create another post rather than editing my last one.

Well, I have now watched the first two eps of the Originals and the first ep of the Vampire Diaries. I will watch ep two of the Vampire Diaries and if it does not do more to grab me, I will be saying so long.

The Originals has done enough to intrigue me. It was interesting to find out that Klaus raised Marcel. Marcel blames Klaus for not coming back, and Klaus blames Marcel for not seeking him out. I wonder if Davina is so devoted to Marcel because he raised her?

Which Original does Marcel want to kill? Someone needs to give him the 411 that killing Klaus will wipe out him and his little gang.

I cannot pinpoint when Haley stopped annoying me, but I liked her the last ep. I love that Becs did not whine or pout, and Klaus really did have a plan. It was great when he Mickey Moused it for Becs and Haley.

TVD: The only characters I care about are Stefan & Katherine. The show is still okay for me.

TO: Love is superior to TVD at this point. Love Rebekah and it seems Marcel has a little witch...can't wait to see the next EP.

Re: The Vampire Diaries & The Originals
I liked Rebekah here, she was a petulent teenager on TVD but here she was fine.

Re: The Vampire Diaries & The Originals
"He was kind to me." Haley nailed it. What makes Elijah enjoyable is his compassion. He could wipe anything out of his path, but he takes the time to put himself in the other person's place. Plus, the man looks ultra fine in a suit.

I really felt bad for Marcel's friend and his girlfriend. They seemed like nice people and did not deserve what happened to them. At least she is dead and can't be tortured any more, but Marcel bricked him up for 100 yrs. That is brutal.

I love that Becs is being all take charge, and I feel for the woman. She uses a uncaring, unflinching facade but she still just wants someone to value her.

I wonder what is up with Haley? She has that freaky tattoo, wolves are drawn to her and the witch flipped out.

I actually like Cami. She is a nice contrast to the supernatural beings on the show.

Great EP of The Originals. I like Camille too. The ratings actually rose. :bolian:
