TV Fanatic Round Table: Spinoff Showdown!

by at . Comments

Some combination of Christmas, Hanukah and July 4 came early for fans of Pretty Little Liars and The Vampire Diaries this year, as BOTH shows are in line for spinoffs in the fall:

Ravenswood has been confirmed by ABC Family as premiering in October, while a backdoor pilot for The Originals airs on April 25.

Which series has the TV Fanatic staff most excited? We answer that question below and then turn it over to our readers...

Miranda Wicker: The Originals. Elijah. Hopefully shirtless Klaus having hot hybrid sex with Hayley. Enough said.

Steve Marsi: PLL, because who Among us tv fAnAtics isn't enthrAlled with the concept of rAvenswood. Am I right y'All?

Carissa Pavlica: I'm looking forward to finally being able to enjoy The Vampire Diaries without The Originals, so that's a big NO for that series. As crAzy as Pretty Little Liars gets, they've never crossed me enough to tune out, so I'll be tuning into Ravenswood. Guaranteed.

Leigh Raines: Hmmm both shows are definitely guilty pleasures but I'm going with Ravenswood. The originals get a little too "brooding" for me at times.

Nick McHatton: I've never cared about Klaus or the other originals (aside from Elijah), so Ravenswood is my favorite new spinoff. Plus, can you imagine all the pretty people they'll pack into Ravenswood?

Matt Richenthal: Claire Holt will be on The Originals, right? And Phoebe Tonkin? So how is this a question?!?

YOUR turn, TV Fanatics: For which spinoff are you most excited?

. Some would say that he will meet some girl in New Orleans. I would not be the same. It would be ONE MORE GIRL, she would not be special, the only one that he cares about. And if he meets someone else, Caroline would become not so special to him and their relationship would be ruined. That's the deal with heartless bad guys. They fall for one special girl. And only her. I could give an example of one of my favourite show - Gossip Girl. The Chuck and Blair dynamic was so special when she was the only girl he loved, he cared about, he listened. And then lots of other girls came.. I don't even remember their names, but he was passionate about them too and I think it ruined the show and the dynamics of that amazingly written couple. You would call it unrealistic... It's a show. People who are watching need this epic love scenario. Ad I think Caroline and Klaus have that potential. I think Julie Plec should think how to make The Vampire Diaries work WITH the Original family and not to move them to another city just to make another "hit show". I do care about the Originals. I hope this show FAILS. AND FAILS BIG TIME And oh Cmon, bring back Kol to life.

Neither. I personally don't care about PLL spin-off, because it would be just dull, but i do care about originals. it was a stupid idea to do this show... Why? Because they have built amazing chemistry between the cast of the vampire diaries. Stefan and Rebekhah, Elijah and Katherine (oh c'mon), not to mention Klaus and Caroline! And they are moving three pf the best characters of TVD to New Orleans to meet witches and amazingly horrific psychology student mortal... I personally don't care about them. It is just plain stupid. I don't know how, but they are forgetting some important things. For example, Caroline and Klaus. They have amazing chemistry. The relationship is finally going somewhere and the importance of this relationship is that it is special in a way. Klaus cares only about Caroline, that what makes him and his character special. Without Caroline he is just a heartless monster who kills innoscent people and crushes their dreams. Some would say that he will meet some girl in New Orleans. I would not be the same. It would be ONE MORE GIRL, she would not be special, the only one that he cares about. And if he meets someone else, Caroline would become not so special to him and their relationship would be ruined. That's the deal with heartless bad guys. They fall for one special girl. And only her. I could give an example of one of my favourite show - Gossip Girl. The Chuck and Blair dynamic was so special when she was the only girl he loved, he cared about, he listened. And then lots of other girls came.. I don't even remember their names, but he was passionate about them too and I think it ruined the show and the dynamics of that amazingly written couple.

Of course people are mostly wondering on what will happen throughout the originals spinoff for vampire diaries and even though I don't find much excitement,I want to see the show get better again. ;P ;P =|

Why are we having a PLL spinoff? What's the reason?

I hope THE ORIGINALS has some crossovers from The Vampire Diaries.

On the one side, watching ridiculous good-looking and fashionable girls making life-changing,but sriousy bad and unreasonable desicions while chasing their tails and the rest of the cast.. Or, watching 3 incredible talented actors such as Joseph Morgan,Daniel Gillies and Claire Holt delving into the Originals storylines through a 42min/week screen time,characters that have been beloved more than the main characters of TVD by many! It is an uneven comparison! The Originals are an upcoming masterpiece while the Pll #2 is an duplicate probably!
