Welcome to Humor Nation. The Vampire Diaries came at a time when the Vampire crazy was beginning to sweep up the world. At first it looked like a rip-off of Twilight, but clearly it became evident that’s something far better than the Twilight saga. It had much better story-lines, interesting twists, and amazingly well-developed characters.
TVD became so popular that it spawned a spin-off series known as ‘The Originals’. The show focused on the ancient vampires in history. While both the shows are set in the same universe, the comparisons are bound to happen. It’s arguable which show is better, everyone has their own parameters to make the comparisons.
So Let’s Take A Look At 8 Reasons Why The Vampire Diaries Is Better Than The Originals
8. MULTIPLE STORIES
Lot of people think that TVD is just a story about a love triangle, but it is more than that. TVD has so many stories within one show. You have the story of two brothers, filled with love and hatred, but eventually they come together despite all their issues. It is also the story of three best friends who are thrown into the world of Supernatural, go through hell, but still manage to stick together. Elena, Caroline, and Bonnie, all three lose their loved ones, but still sacrifice for the love of one another. It is the story of a teenager who loses his parents, faces different supernatural threats, and ultimately becoming a vampire hunter, and has to resist killing her loving sister. But when it comes to TO, it has limited stories, it’s just the story of the Mikaelsons and their family bond.
7. THE ROMANCE
Perhaps the main driving force behind TVD is the love triangle between the Salvatore brothers and Elena which started it all. The show not only featured the love triangle but many memorable romances for other characters like Enzo, Caroline, Jeremy, Bonnie. The Originals lacked when it came to romantic relationships. It focused mostly on the themes of family and brotherhood which isn’t bad, but the viewers are of different age groups and they have different content requirements. This is the reason why TVD was popular with people of all age groups whereas TO was more adult centered.
6. BETTER DIALOGUES
When it comes to The Vampire Diaries, there is a lot of humor, wit, sarcasm, and naturality in the conversations. The nicknames such as Bon-Bon and the quotes such as ‘Hello Brother’ are emotional and memorable. But when it comes to Originals, it just has too many of the cheesy pep talks and the pompous and boastful speeches about the family at times feel so artificial. It’s always the family, Klaus needing to change, and then family again. All the dialogues between the characters revolve around them.
