'The Vampire Diaries' vs 'The Originals'

As I was scrolling through my Google+ app the other day, I came across a post. The topic of  which was 'The Vampire Diaries' or 'The Originals'.

'The Vampire Diaries' or 'The Originals'.

That's the question.

I don't know which I prefer. To be honest, I love them both so much. They are exactly the genre I am interested in. Teen television with hot actors and actresses, centred in a romance full of drama. The terrible woes of 2 brothers falling in love with the same woman.

The Vampire Diaries came first but it is getting very boring and slow, like the writers can't think of another story line. But I love books, the first 4 series were amazing and I can't wait to see what happens with - SPOILER ALERT - Bonnie! Eeek!

The Originals is finally starting to go somewhere. I love the connection between Hayley and Klaus and the fact that baby Hope is back is great. Everyone knows I love babies, right?

I l think that both shows would both be better if they started to have more cross over. That is how it started after all. I would love to see how the Salvator's and Elena would react the Klaus' new attitude and with him being a good guy. I think, The Originals made so many people connect with him, whereas before, he was kind of evil.

What do you think? Which is your favourite between the two?
