The Originals Episode 1.20 Review -- Daddy Issues

The Originals 1.20  Review  “A Closer Walk With Thee” April 22, 2014. – The CW Network   That sound you hear is me squealing like a tween who just touched the napkin Harry Styles wiped his mouth on when he and the rest of One Direction stopped off for post-show parfaits at the Dairy Queen. And, like that tween will never wash her grubby little fingers again, I intend to […]

The Originals Episode 1.19  Review “An Unblinking Death” April 22, 2014. – The CW Network If the Originals were Sesame Street, this episode would have been brought to you by the letter K – for Killings, Kieran and Kaboom. Of course, if this were Sesame Street, we’d have cute little puppet Klaus and cute little puppet Marcel snarling cutely at each other, while cute little puppet Elijah moons over cute […]

The Originals Episode 1.18 Review — The Originals Episode1.18 “The Big Uneasy” April 15, 2014 – CW Network  So, there’s good news and there’s bad news on the Originals front. The good news? Claire Holt recently cleared up the rumors about her status with the show. She will return, she just needs some time off. Which means I don’t have to view this show through the lens of someone super […]

The Originals Episode 1.17 Review “Moon Over Bourbon Street” 3/18/2014 – CW Network And, then there were two… Normally, I open these reviews with a little introduction blurb I hope lands closer to funny on the humorous-to-plodding spectrum. This time? I’ve got nothing. Last week, as we all know, Klaus allowed Rebekah to leave New Orleans with her life, with the caveat she never return. I’m sure I’m not the […]

The Originals Episode 1.16 Review — Garden of Eden

The Originals Episode 1.16 Review -- Garden of Eden

Judge Judy. Judge Alex. Judge Divorce Court Lady. There’s tons of options if small claims court shows are what tickle your daytime entertainment fancy, but the CW has provided a primetime option for those who prefer their court shows with more blood and less legal stuff. That’s right, Klaus took on the role of judge, jury and executioner as he held his trapped sister to a trial by fire. And, […]

The Originals Episode 1.15 Review — Crime and Punishment

The Originals Episode 1.15 Review -- Crime and Punishment

Last week, I complained that the show did not deliver on its promise Klaus would be subjected to unimaginable horrors. A pain, they promised, so severe the Original would wish he could die. Instead, it was Rebekah who suffered. And, this week, though Elijah told us Klaus was suffering, he seemed to be sleeping soundly. So, what gives? Turns out that the pain was coming. It was coming hard and […]

The Originals Episode 1.14 Review -- Disturbia

My what a long three weeks that was. So much has happened in the world. The Tonight Show has a new host. A bunch of stray puppies in Sochi have a new home. The NBA has its first openly gay player. Oh, and news broke that NBC plans to resurrect Heroes, which is perhaps the most baffling (and awesome) news story of all. Yatta! When last we left our dysfunctional […]

The Originals Episode 1.13 Review -- Crisis of Faith

 I’d like to open this review with an excerpt from The CW’s Guide to Angering Fans of The Originals: Step #1 – Present to them an intense, game-changing hour of television. Step #2 – Place Rebekah and Klaus in danger as a cliffhanger. Step #3 – Reveal to them the next episode won’t come on for THREE FREAKING WEEKS. Step #4 – Sit back and laugh at the subsequent Twitter […]
