They never take themselves too seriously, enjoying the hell out of some classic sci-fi tropes and dismantling some fantasy lore.

But while vastly different from the shows that came before, Legacies never forgets its roots and serves up delightful Easter eggs.

Vampire spinoff has new characters, violence, sexiness.

As someone who is still bitter about how The Originals' series finale played out, I was perfectly prepared to be disappointed by Legacies Season 1 Episode 1, but there was a lot to like about it.

Legacies is not at all what I was expecting... I probably would've scoffed and thought that the show was going too big. But I have to tell you guys: This show works. Yes, it's going big, but that's what makes it so fun (amongst other things). I am all in.

Legacies is for anyone interested in supernatural high school drama. And the nostalgic setting and fun easter eggs for fans of the Vampire Diaries universe are just the cherries on top.
