The Originals Season 1: Safety Is Definitely Not Guaranteed

Back in my first TV Chat for The Originals I complained that the show is inaccessible to new viewers and that there is no ‘in’ character to which the audience can relate. Four episodes on and those worries have been assuaged somewhat. We’re now far enough away from the drama of Mystic Falls forThe Originals to be its own show, the action and character drama centred firmly in New Orleans. As for an ‘in’ character, well, it’s starting to look like the entire Mikaelson family is our in to their world. They may be a thousand years old, but the need for love, acceptance and justice is very familiar – albeit exaggerated.
