      Words cannot express how good the first season was. The story line was very fast paced and if you missed an episode you missed a lot. Most of the shows on the CW rarely can catch my interest because they are focusing on a teen audience but I loved watching this with my younger family members. The DVD's special features are not that good, which is typical for the first season of most shows. It has "5 featurettes" (comic-con panel, origins, backstory, history, and PaleyFest Panel) which are interesting but I have found more interesting and entertaining things on youtube. The unaired scenes are divided up for each episode. This is great because I can look at them right after I view each episode. I have had DVDs that put them together and I would have to guess which episode they would/could have been in. There is no gag reel. I hate this because I love to see the cast members when they are not so serious (the way their characters are). Perhaps, the gag reel would not have been as good as those from Supernatural so they left it out.

      Usually I a not a big "spin-off" fan...in the case of the Originals I am OBSESSED! Word of advise, you can watch from season 1 and pick up the pieces, but you really should watch TVD (you can start at 3 if you want) to get the full back story of the original family! Julie Plec is a goddess she's so amazing at creating and writing these characters and the chemistry of the cast is just unbelievable! I have convinced a lot of friends to watch and not one of them didn't also get hooked!

      The Originals is a great show in that almost every character is a villain. They all have agendas and goals and will do whatever it takes to achieve them. Some have tragic origins, but they are all evil and that makes it more exciting. When heroes clash with evil, they worry about collateral damage and casualties, but villains can go all out which is fun to see. And what could be better than a four way war between vampires, witches, werewolves, and humans.

      This is probably one of the best spin off series of an original that we have seen. It may even be better than the Orginal....you see what I did there. Seriously though, it's intense, the music is great, picks up right where Vampire Diaries stopped with them, and just like the Vampire Diaries, you really feel for characters that in most cases would be villains. Klaus especially.

      If you love vampires, you MUST buy this set of DVDs of Season 1 of "The Originals". The show is awesome and it will leave you waiting for the next season to start. When I watched the last DVD, I wanted more and didn't want it to end! Can't wait until the new episodes begin! I'll be buying "Season 2" when it comes out. You won't be disappointed if you purchase it!

      This series, which I believe came from Vampire Diaries, appeals to those no longer in their Teens. Whereas Vampire Diaries seems geared to the younger generation, I feel this is to those still intrigued by the vampire stories but looking for something that is not as for the high school aged class of viewers.

      Fan of the Vampire Diaries and wasn't sure how I'd like this "spin-off" series. I enjoyed it a lot. Very rich, detailed and imaginative storyline - great entertainment. Purchased the Blu-ray / DVD Combo because it was only a few dollars more - very good quality picture and sound and nicely packaged.

      This show, "The Originals" is a spin-off from the CW's Vampire Diaries but stands on its own as a solid horror-fantasy program. Like most CW shows the cast is pretty but also quite talented. If you like eternal dysfunctional families this is for you. Plus the New Orleans setting can't be beat.
