The Originals have had an awesome year and made the tops of most list. TV After Dark nominated this wonderful cast and crew three times for their time capsule. Be sure to vote for this awesome cast and crew.
“She is very much like all women. She just wants to be loved and accepted.” ~ Stephanie Flasher
My favorite female character for 2013 is Rebekah Mikaelson (played by Claire Holt) from The Originals. She is one badass bitch. I love that despite everything her family has done, she is loyal and extremely protective of them. The fact that Rebekah feels she must look after Hayley because she’s carrying Klaus’ child is great. I love that despite Rebekah’s hard exterior she is very much like all women. She just wants to be loved and accepted. I love that she’s not afraid to put people in their place, but can also be caring and compassionate.
“I have to recognise their talent – clearly they’re a force to be reckoned with and a team who deserve ample opportunities to expound their writing skills.” ~ Jayne Balke
“If we turned every man you dropped your knickers for then human beings would cease to exist and we’d have no bloody food.” ~ Klaus, The Originals
Undoubtedly, television is overflowing with brilliant writers (many who make me green with envy over their raw talent). To pick just one seems cruel, and I decided the only way to choose was to build from my favorite episode of The CW’s new spin-off series The Originals – namely, “Fruit of the Poisoned Tree.” Penned by Diane Ademu-John and Charlie Charbonneau, the episode exploded with emotion; it signified a turning point for the rookie series whereby it finally became a series of its own, separated by its overshadowing parent The Vampire Diaries. Diane is the writer in particular who I want to focus on, as she scripted my other favorite episode “House of the Rising Son” – an episode I found literally no fault with. For the second episode of a new series, that’s practically unheard of. For this reason I have to recognise her talent (and Charlie’s!) – clearly they’re both a force to be reckoned with and a team who deserve ample opportunities to expound their writing skills. And what better place to do that than the devilishly addictive series that is The Originals?
“The show isn’t perfect, but it has some compelling twists and flashback scenes designed to make your ovaries explode.” ~ Jayne Balke
Still an infant in TV series terms, but The Originals has quickly become a favourite of mine. It’s not only the appealing cast (Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies and Charles Michael Davis are the Christmas treats you can’t get enough of) which draws the viewer to this show, but the escalating evolution of events in New Orleans. It reminds me of The Vampire Diaries before it went haywire and drowned in doppelgängers; when each episode had you gripping your seat and wringing the life out of your feather pillow. The show isn’t perfect, but it has some compelling twists and flashback scenes designed to make your ovaries explode. If you’re looking for a new fantasy series to start, this is the one to go for.
“It’s a sexy, more mature supernatural show that does not disappoint.” ~ Stephanie Flasher
Another great show I’d recommend is The Originals. A spin-off of The Vampire Diaries, the series follows the Mikaelson siblings in New Orleans. It’s a new spin on a supernatural vampire show. The Originals is darker. It focuses more on life as a vampire and vampires being a part of the community. It’s nice to see vampires living as vampires rather than the struggle of coming to terms with being a vampire or the constant fear of being exposed as a vampire. The Originals is a sexy, more mature supernatural show that does not disappoint.
The Originals returns January 14th with brand new episodes….
