What: The Vampire Diaries spin-off, focusing on The Original Family -- Klaus, Rebekah, Elijah -- as they make New Orleans their new home.
Why: Unlike all the other entries this year, we've already seen an episode of The Originals since The CW tested it out with a backdoor pilot episode of TVD. Not only did the familiar faces dazzle in this new setting, but Charles Michael Davis is a star-in-the-making and a ferocious foe for Klaus to tangle with.
When: Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on The CW.
