The Originals – S01.01 – Always and Forever

TechSupport went to bed. Miz watched the VD’s spin-off, The Originals.

The premise of this is that Elijah used to be a meanie in VD – the worst meanie -, but then Klaus was, and also Rebekah. But then Rebekah and Matt hooked up and we love this pairing. We also love that Klaus loves Caroline – swoon. VD issued a backdoor pilot in hopes of this spin-off, and it paid off. Pretty much, that’s all you need to know. Oh and all siblings are impeccably well dressed. If you don’t understand anything from this paragraph, never fear… you shouldn’t need it: This episode was a retelling of the pilot from Elijah’s point of view as well as telling all the history that you need to know as a new viewer to the Originals.

The result? Miz isn’t convinced. She likes VD a lot more, mainly because it’s her guilty pleasure. Maybe bring across Matt or Caroline and I would watch it. Confused. Maybe I need to go back and rewatch VD and Elijah in the early days as I never understood him as a character me thinks.
