Spin off from TVD and it becomes definitely better than TVD itself.

avatar

Where TVD becomes slightly more boring per episode, The Originals is getting better and better.

avatar

I can barely handle all the mushiness or crying in Vampire Diaries. Klaus is bad ass even when he is complaining about this or that. I gave up on Vampire Diaries when Elena erased her feelings for Damon. I knew he'd come back and more drama would happen. There's just something much better about this show.

One random day I was looking for a new show to watch, stumbled onto this show that had a neat darkish poster/fanart. Without looking at anything or knowing what the show was about I loaded up the first episode... crap I thought, another Vampire show. I finished that first episode, then the next, and the next... I couldn't stop watching. This show took me by surprise! Not only was I enjoying it, I feel like it is one of my favorite shows I have watched so far. Even if you do not like vampire shows, I feel like this is still worth a watch.

Top 3 tv shows for me in no particular order: Supernatural The Originals Friends Now I only have Supernatural left

avatar

I have watched 6 episodes so far and I just can't get invested in it... I like TVD more at the moment, because that's campy and that's why I watch it. The Originals tries to loose the campy factor and wants to be more serious, but I I want "more serious" I got other shows I prefer. I worry that i'm giving up too soon, but at the moment I can't find a reason to continue.

Best Fantasy TV Shows To Watch (Including The Originals)

  • The best place to start for me is “The Originals”. It’s the spin-off of The Vampire diaries, which we all remember. The first season premiered in 2013. It’s the storyline of power-hungry family, originals of the vampires, who are trying to reclaim their own city as they refer to  - “New Orleans”. But things get complicated when witches and other vampires get involved, who are not ready to give up power. Not surprising after Vampire diaries we saw this coming.

  • The next TV Show we’re gonna discuss is the “Supernatural”. Yes, why not, let’s dive in in our youths. The story revolves around two brothers, who are fighting bad supernatural creatures. Such as demons, monsters, and even fallen gods. It’s some kind of twist when we understand what their motive is, so go on trust me on this to start these series if you have not seen them yet.

  • And last but not least is of course “Game of Thrones”. Probably the most popular series of all.f you have not seen it yet, trust me you’re missing out. It’s the masterpiece written by George. R.R. Martin.  The plot follows the title. Seven kingdoms fighting for one throne, but it’s not that simple. They all have mutual enemies, which will lead them to form a truce and even fight for each other’s lives. This show is full of surprises so you don’t wanna miss it.

So these are my favorite fantasy TV shows, choose one to watch and have fun.

Don’t forget to come back in a couple of days for some fresh articles!
