Secret Circle Recap…umm…

DVR Issues AGAIN!

Soo…my dvr problems should be fixed for tonight’s episode and Team Seth gave me a recap of the prior episodes (not this one) from the commercials she watched. I’m sure something was missed, but nah…probably not. I didn’t see Nick die, but I am still sad. I also think Nick shouldn’t have been replaced by his big brother the witch killer aka Ken doll. (because, he looks like a boy Barbie.) Prove me wrong, Williamson, prove me wrong.

Really? Where's Barbie and her pink car to pick you up and take you to the Dream House?

  

So what can I say about this episode, that I haven’t actually watched, but saw the commercials when watching last week’s EXCELLENT Vampire Diaries?

Hey Cassie, liking The Blind Melon are we?

Seriously… was EVERYBODY a bumblebee this Halloween? Was it the IT costume? Are people having Blind Melon flashbacks? Because I bet Cassie was like 3 when that video came out. Somebody must of been watching VH1’s 90’s Video Countdown. (While Adam was watching VH1 Classic channel’s the 80’s show. Where better to get your The Cure and Depeche Mode fix?)  

Gone, so gone. Boo Hoo!

Ugh. Let’s see what happens tonight.

NEEDS YOUR HELP!

No clue.

Here’s the problem, my DVR no longer has the Secret Circle episodes. That I have failed to watch. Good news is that I watched all the Vampire Diaries. #Priorities

Sooo…we need you assistance dear readers. Could YOU catch us up? Either give us a run down in the comments? Or write a guest post! Feel free to be funny! Like jokes about Adam’s very dark eye lashes. He is either very lucky to have such lashes (I’m jealous) or he likes 8’s hair bands. You decide! Guest posts can be sent to talksupe@gmail.com.

Thanks guys!

We have MAJOR catch up to do…

Why are the Staceys doing this to us?!? Why?!?

 
It’s been busy…REALLY BUSY for the both of us. So expect gigantic and hilarious catch up posts about the Vampire Diaries and Secret Circle, which we need to stay up late and watch on our DVR’s. So here’s a challenge, you get to tell us a thing or two. In the comment section, tell us what you think about what happened so far on Vampire Diaries, Secret Circle and even Twilight. (Breaking Dawn is coming, y’all!)  Here are some suggestions:
 

Anything about these guys...you can even make something up and pretend it's fanfiction. I don't care, just make it rated T for my sensitive eyes. I might blush.

 
or…
 

Bad boys can be cool...on television

or…
 

It HAS to be eyeliner, right? Or he really loves Culture Club?

maybe…
 
 

Decisions that make us mad... We will miss you, Nick...

how about….
 

Fade to black, Meyer's style

 
perhaps…
 

I'm worried about that dress after that engagement ring! How about you?

 

Chess? Really?

 
New post soon!
 
 

Secret Circle Episode 2: “Bound” or…

In anticipation of tonight’s episode…

He better not start singing, “Friday, I’m in Love”.

Buddy, Are You Wearing Eyeliner?

*Poof! Spoilers!*

Here we go with episode two, and it appears this show is starting to find it’s groove. We had more humor, some more special effects (aka magic) and more character development. My only problem still…Adam. I don’t know what the issue is fully. He’s seems very intense, has super dark eyelashes (like he’s wearing mascara and eyeliner) and has a staring problem. He’s one episode away from starting a THE CURE tribute band. I can see him serenading, FRIDAY, I’M IN LOVE to Cassie in the quad on, you know, Friday and then singing, BOYS DON’T CRY to Diana on Monday. He’s a fickle, fickle boy. I had an idea of Adam in my head when I read the books in my teenager years, in between the times I was getting my doses of teen angst in the Sweet Valley High series. This television Adam is like a Edward Cullen/Stefan Salvatore hybrid, witch edition. Isn’t two of those, enough?

My original idea of Adam was found in these books.

Don’t worry… characters on shows grow on me and perhaps Adam will someday. Hopefully, by the next episode. Now that I vented…(sorry about that!) what happened in “Bound”? This is the picture recap…

Cassie tries to light a candle. Instead she breaks Nick's window.

 

That teaches a guy to be a Peeping Tom, immediately after he has secret...umm...sex with another girl.

 

School is hard enough without having these two in your class.Obviously, starting dangerous fires in school does not actually set off the sprinkler system. #safetyfail"

 

"I will serende The Cure songs to you forever...after I sing them to Cassie first."

 

Mr. Staring Problem is going to teach Cassie some "magic". (Is that what the kids are calling it these days?)

 

Oh I get it...their forbidden love creates the energy of light. Ugh. But it makes a nifty party trick!

 
 

Making "potions" is not a good thing, young man. Also you need to hang out with nicer girls like...Cassie.

 

What did I tell you about hanging out with nice girls, Don Juan? (Plus making poor Melissa jealous is just not cool.)

 

It's all fun and games until you magically push the Student Council President to her death on the jagged rocks.

  

Luckily, bad Faye's mommy and bad Diana's daddy have a crystal to bring her back to life.

 

Oops! It also kills your grandpa!

 
 

Luckily, those powers are officially binded! That will make everything better! Right? Right? At least a little? *crickets*

What will happen tonight, dear readers? Hopefully, more Cassie and Nick scenes. (One can only hope!)

The Secret Circle…Next Vampire Diaries?

THE VERDICT IS…MAYBE? PERHAPS? COULD HAPPEN?

I hope Marnie fromTrue Blood isn't running this group

Tonight is the second episode of the Secret Circle. For this reason, we feel that you need our seal of approval of this new show. (Actually, you don’t. But we do have a inflated sense of self and feel that our opinions matter. Just humor us for a bit.) So what did we think? Here’s the breakdown…

1. Like the first episode (the entire season one) of Vampire Diaries, Secret Circle needs to find it’s groove:

It’s always hard to determine the worth of the first episode of a new show by the very first episode. There are always a few exceptions, like Zooey Deschanel’s The New Girl and Will Arnett’s Up All Night. The first episode’s of those two were hilarious and you should definitely check them both out. But, usually except if the show is horrible, it takes a couple episodes. Like with last Thursday’s Secret Circle, the episode was setting up characters and the beginnings of the plot. While there were some cool things going on it was still a bit dry. Hopefully, the next episode will bring in some lighthearted fun to the angst. It took Vampire Diaries the whole first season to go from pretty good to fantastic. Kevin Williamson and Company must have figured out the formula, so hopefully the transition will go quicker. 

Faye: "You have potential, Cassie." Cassie: "Potential to be in a series that can have be critically acclaimed AND actually have viewers?"

2. It’s all about the characters:

The Girls:

All I need is to get Lux's snark into this character

I have always liked the actress who plays Cassie, Britt Robertson. (Of course, the character was a red head in the books, but I will forgive that for now.) She was great on the show Life Unexpected, full of snark and toughness. You can only see glimmers of this in the character of Cassie. Of course, these are two different characters. I just would love to see a female character that is a strong role model for young women. (Even Vamp Di’s Elena isn’t at that point yet.) Let’s see what happens next episode.

I need to get back to Salem! I need to find Patch and Kayla...oh...wrong show.

Look it’s Stephenie from Days of Our Lives! Actually, it’s head witch Diana. It will be interesting to see if she can bring something extra to the character who even in the book was a virtuous character. Which means…yawn.

This is my bad girl look. It's the look I give the whole episode.

The bad girl is Faye. Yeah…umm…let’s get this character to be more well rounded and well dressed.

Got nothing.

There is another girl. I don’t think they really said anything about her, except that she’s Faye’s sidekick.

The Boys:

Will you love me if I have Edward Cullen hair?

Adam is Cassie’s star crossed love/Diana’s boyfriend. It’s like they took Stefan and Edward Cullen (for you Twilight fans) rolled them up, made them human and a wet blanket. The kid’s all squinty smouldering  stares, fishy kissy lips and creepy protective girly manliness over Cassie. I need this character to be attractive likeable and he’s not there yet. Either he will grow on me (like a fungus) or I need one of those soap opera type recasts. You know the ones, one episode the actor is there then magically a pretty actor is in the next episode in that part.

Hey Adam...don't you have a girlfriend?

I also need to point out that while I think he’s supposed to be a good guy, Adam’s drunk dad is a bit too interested in Cassie. All intense looks and “I loved your Mom. You look like her.” It’s as if he wants Adam to date Cassie to fill in for his lost love affair or to distract him for breaking the law and dating her himself. Actually, that could be interesting.

This is a romantic lead I could like

Nick. Oh Nick. You had me at Peeping Tom. Now that kid can be the bad boy romantic lead. Not the boarder-line cheater romantic lead. (See above). Plus, he has humor potential.  

The Villians:

Creepy and well dressed! It's like a hetero episode of Queer as Folk.

Diana’s Dad is played by Gale Harold from Queer as Folk! He plays fantastic bad guys. Also, well dressed gay men. Now this is what I like to see in a show. His character already has killed Cassie’s mom and almost murdered Adam’s dad! This should be interesting to see how it plays out with the big mystery of the books. I won’t give anything away, but rewatch the scene where he starts the fire at Cassie’s house. Take note of his wet footprints, but there is no water around.

I used to be the ingenue…

Faye’s mom is played by Natasha Henstridge. Didn’t she play that alien in Species? (Which I never watched, but I heard it was scary from the guy I had a crush on in 12th grade.) Now she’s playing a mom and high school principal. I feel so old.

3. Special Effects and Drama

That's the way to woo a girl! Pretty, sparkly water droplets!

That’s where this show is mirroring Vampire Diaries! We had the big house fire, Cassie’s car bursting into flames, pretty water droplet’s filling the sky and Adam’s dad drowning on the floor of the diner. If they can get that silly thing of character development fixed, we can have a great show.

You could have just helped her out of the car. Her legs aren't broken, Romeo.

 

Look out! It's the well dressed fire starter!

4. Humor.

Vampire Diaries is funny. Intentionally funny. (Unlike the Twilight movies, which are unintentionally funny and the intentionally funny is lame.) Secret Circle needs more funny like a snarky Damon. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Bringing the snark...One episode at a time!

So when watching Secret Circle tonight, keep an open mind. There is a lot of possibility in this one and it might be a great fit for the CW and Vampire Diaries.

Let us know what you thought about the first episode in the comments or @talksupe on Twitter.
