BWW Preview: THE ORIGINALS, The Ruin of Many a Poor Boy
by Jennifer McHugh - Sep 29, 2014

I first watched the backdoor pilot during Season Five of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES. I wasn't too excited even though I do adore Klaus' lips and I'd move mountains if Elijah asked me to.

I don't know why I doubted it to begin with, the Mikaelson Family has never disappointed in entertainment. I mean it's pretty much the same basic story as TVD, two brothers, one pretty good, one pretty bad, both invested in the same woman yada yada yada, but here, there are a lot more witches, a lot more wolves and a lot more intrigue. This isn't Mystic Falls; this is New Orleans. (more...)
