This show is okay. I'm not liking the actress for Alice. Thought I did because I was glad they chose a more plain, ordinary actress instead of a supermodel, but eh. Alice in Wonderland I just imagine in that blue dress with bright blonde hair and blue eyes. The actress for her has a really bad hair color ombre thing, and her acting is even boring.
I find it hilarious how Hook used to date Neal's mom and now he's making out with his baby mama. Poor Neal.
I'll never like Bonnie as a character so seeing her return although she was never gone, is not exactly thrilling news. Thank GOD Amora is gone I could not take the Nina Dobrev monologue the show was becoming. Tessa is clearly delusional, I wonder if they'll show what happens on the other side with her and Silas (maybe desperation takes its toll on the other side and there could be a reunion). Overall, besides Bon Bon and the contrived destiny storyline, it was a decent episode. I still prefer The Originals.
While I'm no wild child like Jenna is, if I came home to my mom crying like that she'd at least hear me out and lecture me to death. It was a wasted opportunity, imo (just like the person said below me). Overall, the episode was okay. Jenna had no right to call Matty's new girl a sl*t after what she did. And has no right to tell him that he was fast to move on, when she was already dating someone else.
Wonder what will happen to this show when Cyrus is out of the cage. It's an okay show, it just hasn't completely taken off yet, which is fine.
Why not save money on casting, TVD? Let's just have a tv show with a billion doppelgängers of Nina Dobrev roaming around.
The first two seasons of GG have got to be one of the best two seasons for any show of its genre. They're amazing, and it's too bad it got destroyed and ruined after those.
This show made too bold of a choice killing the main character in the first/ second episode. I'm all for the death of characters, if you read my other reviews I pretty much encourage, embrace, or just don't care about the deaths of nearly every single character on a show. But you don't kill off a new character, one that's been introduced as having chemistry with Caleb, one that's just started discovering her family history and just met her only living blood relative, and then just bring her back as a ghost. I hate lame deaths, I hate when death on a show is meaningless. What's the point of her being dead if she's back. Also, why would I care about any of her family history or story now? She's dead. This show I don't imagine myself getting into, I don't see it as creepy, and I find it too much like Final Destination and The Secret Circle mixed into one.
Actually liking this show a LOT more than I did at the beginning. But then again I tend to like shows better in their earlier seasons, and as they go on tend to drag (However, Breaking Bad is an exception). I like how Elijah went total rogue; it showed us while he's proper if you will, he does have a very violent side. Elijah is definitely there for Hailey, and I think it could be an interesting if you will storyline (we all know how much the writers of this show like two brothers fighting for one girl). Women aren't portrayed TOO well on this show, but whatever it's enjoyable to watch.
Please kill off Bonnie. Keep in mind I say that because death really doesn't matter in this show. No one can die, and if they do die, it doesn't seem to mean anything. Keep in mind, this is a BAD thing. It means I don't give a flying crap if even my favorite main character dies, because hey, they can just come back next episode! Bad writing, you killed Bonnie and brought back Jer? Keep it that way.
