Freddie Highmore is amazing as Shaun a young surgeon with autism. The pilot is very touching. His acting is the one reason people should watch the show. That is not a story we usually watch on television. Really loves it.
The show is so good. First of all it's different from TVD. And we get to see the story from Klaus point of view. Then the witches are more powerful (it's like they are limited in TVD). The show is a battle of species (witches vs vampire vs werewolves vs human. really addictive!!!
