Hypocrite much? You just claimed, without evidence, right in the previous sentence, that the majority of the fanbase shares your opinion.Majority of literate fanbase HERE. You will be hard pressed to find any regular forum goer here who could even tolerate miss cardboard. I am sure thare are people who like miss cardboard somewhere. There are people who LOVE Bella Swan too afterall. And majority of fanbase here can share that opinion but I am NOT speaking "For" them. "we" implies unified response and there's no such thing
I, also, can't see The Secret Circle on ABC Family because it is not a family show,Neither is pretty little liars. Runs on ABC Family just fine.
I ADORED this finale but there's one thing I miss... why the white haired man haven't told Conrad about Amanda Clarke trying to kill him and looking for revenge on the Graysons? And how could the white haired man not recognize her being Emily, Daniel Grayson's fiancÃ©e? Frankly the wya its going, I would not be surprised on if her mother leads that terrorist organization or is somehow connected to it. The WHM did mention her mother.
Well this cements it - Emily Thorne is batman. Hopefully Emily does NOT stop with her revenge now. This finale just added a whole bunch of new targets. Also who wants to bet that Victoria somehow did not board the plane or something, suspecting something and is hiding? Also canâ€™t decide on whether Charlotte will become mini-Victoria or mini-Emily. The most of episode does seem to imply the former, but the episode end and the whole Victoria situation hints at mini-Emily possibility. Ashley on other hand needs to die. NOW. Hopefully Emily completely destroys her next season.
(continued because of awful char limitations)The show then took even bigger nosedive with introduction of the entire Original Family of boredom, to the point that watching final episodes of the season felt like being forcefully fed sawdust for 45 minutes. The only way this show sees how to progress ANYTHING in plot or characters is by completely ignoring writing guidelines, logic and common sense. Hopes for S4: Get new writers and show-runners. ASAP. Also hire an actual direction instead of letting a janitor run around with a camera, because this show has got to have the worst cinematography on tv ever. From what is being heard about S4 is that its more of S3, but worse. Thank you but no thank you.
Final Grade: F+. Apart from forwood moments(and even those were watered down and Stelenized), this season was, what's the word, oh right...POINTLESS AND DIRECTIONLESS. It consists of a dozen or so of filler episodes that DO NOTHING, of characters randomly introduced for no reason at all and killed off. Was this season of Originals? Really did not feel that. This season was like a headless chicken running around the farm. IT was 22 episodes of a Benny Hill theme tune playing while characters engage in most pointless and OOC things possible. Writers failed to do anything interesting with Elena, drove the main triangle into the ground to the point that main trio is outright unlikeable and boring. At the same time Klaus and Originals were completely and utterly ruined Was Klaus supposed to be a villain? sorry, missed that bit because of all the house drawings and ponny riding he did while crying for his mommy and father. The show then took even bigger nosedive with introduction of the entire Original Family of boredom, to the point that watching final episodes of the season felt like being forcefully fed sawdust for 45 minutes. The only way this show sees how to progress ANYTHING in plot or characters is by completely ignoring writing guidelines, logic and common sense. Hopes for S4: Get new writers and show-runners. ASAP.

Best character: Caroline. No competition there. THe only relatable and well-developed character on the whole show. Worst Character: Elena. They managed to make her EVEN MORE annoying and EVEN MORE one-dimensional and EVEN BIGGER mary sue. S2 Elena at least had the moment where she stabbed Elijah. S3 Elena is outright annoying and bland and characterless. Best Episode:I'd say the premiere. Because Klaus was still threatening and Steffie was still not a wussy and there was some real intensity in thinking that Elena should be somehow hidden from Klaus. Worst Episode: The last 5 episodes of the season. Downright horrible and pointless mess of trainwreck plot devices, preictable plot "twists" and horribly bad writingMost Welcome Return: ANna and Pearl. Reminded just how much I used to love this show back in S1. Most unwelcome return: Rose. NO explanation needed. Biggest Surprise: That Matt is STILL not killed.
When something doesnt make sense its normal to critique.THIS. A work of fiction is created to be RECEIVED by audience. That reception can be objective and subjective, negative and positive. It won't always be positive. Good writing quality gets a positive reaction. Thus shows like Breaking Bad, House or Once Upon A Time will life for a LOT of seasons. Bad writing usually kills the kitsch shows fast. TVD is just taking longer because some people are still blindly defending it. However majority of more literate people realize - this is no longer tvd that they all began watching and loved. This now is Heroes S3/S4 level of a mess.
What are your general thoughts on season one?Haven't enjoyed a genre show this much since Buffy. the season, if one looks to it overall has been PERFECTLY paced and every character was perfectly developed. There might be some minor gripes (they made latter parts of Snow/Charming too mellow, but that most likely will get fixed next season and they will be back at snarking), but overall Season One was full of great writing, awesome plot twists and memorable, well-developed characters, while at the same time not forgetting to set up future plotlines(skipping ahead in flashbacks, as well as whole Hat Trick hat room stuff). I can only hope that S2 is as good as S1 was. Awesome show so far.
Now that Snow and Charming remember who they are, will the realize who Emma is?Considering writers have confirmed that they all retain both memory sets, I expect awkwardness. Emma never really had parents. Meeting your birth parents as an orphan is quite traumatic experience. Snow and CHarming on other hand got ROBBED of seeing their child grow up. Lots of angst there, I expect. The Huntsman was back for the last episode: sad reminder or awesome surprise?I'd go with awesome surprise. I certainly hope that this show, unlike certain others, does not start reviving characters left and right. The best thing is that death is final and permanent. Once you lose that, the only road in quality is down...(example: Supernatural, Vampire Diaries, etc)
