I will admit I am a Vampire Diaries fan. Nina Dobrev and Ian Sommerhold had me hooked in the first episode. When they introduced the characters of the Mikaelson family in season 2 of the Vampire Diaries it brought a whole new dynamic to the show. Elijah was my new favorite. So when they introduced the spin-off of The Originals focusing on the origin story of the Mikaelson family and their lives I could not wait to watch.
So in 2013 when The Originals premiered I sat there and took it all in for the next 5 years. I rooted for Elijah and Hailey to get together. Then for Jackson and Hailey to make it work. For Rebekah to surrender to her love with Marcel. For Divina to find her happy ever after and break away from the oppression of her parents. There were so many storylines! And when Hope was born I thought for sure that would mean reconciliation for the Mikaelson family and that all would be forgiven. But it wasn’t. It just took us on another journey that no one ever saw coming.
The Originals have come to an end. It’s an end of an era. While I was sad to see the end of The Originals I’m happy to share you can now bring home all the seasons in one box set! Just in time for the holiday break, you can order the complete series of The Originals and binge watch them from start to finish. It’s a perfect way to spend time this holiday season, at least I think so. Because after the family gathering, after the presents have been opened, let’s be honest. The kids are going to ditch you and play with all those new toys. This may be the one time this year you have some quiet time to do something you enjoy, binge watch one of your favorite shows.
The Originals complete series can be ordered online or pick up a copy at your local retailer.
