I see nobody has started a thread for this. lol
I cant wait for it to start, I really an curious how they are going to do the real pilot episode of the show. Rebekah is still yet to join her brothers. I actually hope the opening teaser is actually a flashback to the original family, which will give people who didn't see Vampire diaries, a chance to know who the characters are.

But I think that the show is darker, more adult. I think that there's going to be a lot more enchantment and magic to it, because of the New Orleans setting that we have to fulfil. And I think that we're going to see a lot more warfare. Kind of strategic... it's going to be a battle to reclaim this kingdom. A borderline mafia type battle with Elijah and Klaus usurping their former kingdom.
I like the sounds of it being more darker and adult, much like how Angel was from Buffy. I am curious how they are going to play with the idea of the originals being unkillable, I hope they put an end to the constant daggering of them, theres no way they will have Rebekah or Elijah daggered for two or three episodes in a row, since they are the stars.
