60 minutes

Continuing the tradition of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and THE ORIGINALS, the story of the next generation of supernatural beings at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. Klaus Mikaelson’s daughter, 17-year-old Hope Mikaelson; Alaric Saltzman’s twins, Lizzie and Josie Saltzman; and other young adults come of age in the most unconventional way possible, nurtured to be their best selves…in spite of their worst impulses. Will these young witches, vampires and werewolves become the heroes they want to be — or the villains they were born to be?

Definitely a show geared towards a pre-teen audience. The cast is mostly real teens and it deals with a lot of teens angst. If you are looking for a continuation in style of 'The Originals' then you are out of luck. It is somewhat more reminiscing of "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" but with even younger cast. Also it feels insulting that they are trying to make it more Harry Potter like with a cheap imitation of the Goblet of Fire and all.

It's doing better than I thought it was going to, but lacks the essence of its predecessors.

Fun show, though doesn't feel like it has the same stakes/investment level as The Vampire Diaries. Lots of fun easter eggs though

The weakest from every series about the vampires. Hope is totally different person than she was in The Originals. This i'snt consistent. She doesn't have true relationships with her family what is strange.

Its a continuation of The Vampire Diaries. Alaric Saltzman is now running a school for supernatural creatures. The school has a library called The Stephan Salvator Memorial Library, which is kind of fun. The guy that is the cop in Mystic Falls, Matt Donovan, does a cameo in a couple episodes. No other main characters from the Vampires show.

The 'evil' fraternal twin witch girls have grown up and are a major part of the season one plot. It's a bad sister good sister thing, much like Damon and Stephan. And Claus' girl has grown up and she is going to be interesting. I never watched The Originals so some of the history is disjointed for me. The school reminded me a bit of X-Men. Kind of a rip off of the concept.

The plot is a bit thin in most of the episodes (up to episode 14), and one of the witch sisters appears to have the emotion maturity of a 2 year old, which comes off as bad acting. Its basically a monster hunt. Every episode is a new monster to fight. Its geared toward kids than the original Vampires.

Spoilers: The Merge happens in the final episode and the cute innocent sister wins out.

I just love most things vampires, werewolves, and supernaturals... Yet this show is not as interesting character-wise as The Originals. Cast and character backstories are nowhere as deep or complex and driving. It's obvious CW is going for the younger audience. But hey-- That's showbiz. Yet, it is worth a watch due to the fascinatingly fun intro of bizarre yet documented tormentors.

The Dragon is abit much & makes it 'cheapy'. All the supernatural vibe just does not seem well executed. Otherwise everything else is very well.
