Thumbs Say Not Bad For What It Is
Mr. Dawson’s Creek spent a long, empty headed weekend with the repeat viewings of the Twilight movies and The Craft and came to the logical conclusion…
Teenage witches! But they will live in the Pacific Northwest and drive trucks!
There will be one crazy bitch that’s mad with witchy power and magical glittery stuff will happen in the woods!
(OK, to be fair, the storyline comes from a series of books, so the derivative elements might not be his fault)
Maybe it’s because I find Britt Robertson charming or that I have a soft spot for young adult entertainment, but I have to say The Secret Circle bests both the inspirations. Which is kind of faint praise (especially in the case of Twilight) but still.
If the shows finds its sense of humor and goes wild it could be fun though it’s doubtful I’ll personally watch and wait (such hopefulness didn’t totally pay off with Supernatural.)
But what do you think?
I really liked the pilot episode and can’t wait to see the next episode tonight. I have to agree it did feel very much like The Craft but that’s a great film so nothing bad to say about that.
