The Secret Circle > The Secret Circle Review: One Shady Sibling > Comments Page 3
Oh well, If they have taken so many liberties with the book, what's one more liberty hey? (the biggest one of all)
I didn't like Adams fathers comments to Diana, she is a kid. A kid in love with his kid drunk or not that was mean and Diana didn't deserve it.
My only other complaint about the series so far is the hatred among the circle members. I know everything shouldn't be rosey all the time but they need to come together and soon.
@Dr.CerrenoMD I was confused when they mentioned the grandmother's name as Blake too...
@ Matt- It definately was a boring 41.33 seconds of television especially compared to last weeks episode because instead of it being packed with action it was packed with emotion and some very heart wrenching scenes. Kudos to Jessica Parker-Kennedy, she does have some acting chops and it was good to see her mature a little. I am liking Melissa a bit more.
Chris Zylka is a model turned actor (with no formal acting training, I checked wikipedia) so I wasn't expecting anything more than he portrayed already. I am sure that it will get better over time.
I liked how Charles showed remorse for killing Nick and I loved that scene with Diana picking out the picture. It looked like it was going to kill him! A different man from the one who killed Amelia in cold blood!!!
Faye was right, her mother is a cold hearted (b)witch. I really hope Cassie's grandmother didn't believe that she didn't know about the circle!
Note to Kevin Williamson and Andrew Miller: Cassie's Grandmother's w
I liked Jake a lot. There were definitely sparks between him and Cassie. Can's wait to see, what happens next!
I also disagree that Jake was boring. I thought there was definitely some chemistry between Cassie and Jake, and I kind of like him. He's far more interesting than Nick was.
Diana is far too mature for her age. I'd like to see her let loose and act a little crazy (or teenager-ish) now that she doesn't have Adam.
hmm.. while i agree that killing of a character(nick) was a good turning point i would have rather it be Melissa to perish, think about it, with her gone the new stony-faced kid would not be needed, a new&darker char.dev for Faye(angry) & Nick(grieving for losing another loved one), a believable and more angsty love triangle (N/C/A), and it would balance the genders out (3 girls/3 boys). I was rather fond of nick's pseudo-badboy crap and Melissa character is rather dependent in other characters to make her relevant, at least if her brother comes in the picture he'd be a believable bad-ass witch hunter..
Diana, by far is the most sincere character on that show, i mean i;d have thought there would be a cat fight between cassie and her, but the moment was pretty nice, to be honest...
chris zylka is a terrible actor.... his stony expressions made my eyes bleed.
for some reason i want Cassie and Jake to be together....Cake or Jassie anyone?I have a feeling that it will happen and cassie will eventually find out that he is a witch hunter.
I personally disagree that the older character Jake was rigid and boring. The chemistry between the two actors, Chris and Britt seemed far better than with Nick in placed.
I was a bit shocked that Diane spitted with Adam so early. Must of been the introduction of Chris who pushed Adam's wrong buttons.
@Anonymous, I also agree that this episode created many points of opportunities and stories. P.S I too saw the Teen Wolf reference... Witch Hunters and MTV hunter. Can't wait for next week.
As for the poor Nick... I'm praying in the L.J Smith universe he comes back as a ghost!! ha
I LOVED that amidst the random plot cards thrown on the table, they still took time out to show Melissa's grieving for the man she loved. Kudos for that. Even if it did feel a tad bit underplayed in contrast to the rest of the episode, it was still there and made me tear up a bit.
Better nickname for Cadam? Sure...how about Assie? :-))
I officially take Nick's death as the turning point for this series, and that's a good thing. With Jake around AND the hunters, it adds a lot of new possibilities and plots for the show to grow with. He's dark, he's still sort of a mystery, and the question remains; now that we know what he's up to, will he actually agree to be apart of this circle, and will Adam eventually be okay with him? I hope they stretch out Jake's secret about getting revenge, because it's interesting!
Given that we had two epic episodes before this, I'm okay that they slowed it down, gave us some more back story to our characters (Did you know Faye was almost sent to a Psychoward!?), and it also helped fill in why Charles felt bad about Nick. So this episode had everything it needed to push the show ahead in my opinion and tell us more about our character's history.
Next week we're digging deeper into the story, and we see the hunters are after the witches on Halloween!!! I'm so excited. I feel like, ye
