TV Journalists Weigh In on The Secret Circle Pilot
Some TV journalists received The Secret Circle Pilot yesterday. We asked them what they thought of the episode. Fortunately for us, they were kind enough to share:
Really liked the pilot, but it’s more of a set-up for the rest of the series. Gale, Phoebe, Britt and Dekker are great. Also, I really liked Shelley. Diana was never a favorite of mine from the books, but I liked her in the pilot. a lot
Better than the Vampire Diaries pilot, but it mostly sets up the rest of the series. I’m reserving judgment. Shelley TOTALLY reminds me of Dianna Agron.
*Gale Harold is by far the best part of The Secret Circle pilot. Great chem between Britt & Dekker too.*
Cool FX aside (and let’s face it, the scene in the woods when the dew drops lift in mid-air is amazing), you know this one will keep you on the edge of your seat week after week with twists and turns and conflicts between characters. There will be typical teen drama amplified ten-fold by the fact that mystical powers are in the mix, but then of course there are those that want to stop them from realizing what they are capable of, and those who want to exploit what they are capable of. It’s a giant metaphor for the potential every child has, but it’s set on a surreal backdrop that lets you just escape into another world.

Watched Ringer and Secret Circle last night. Sign me up for weekly viewings of each this fall. The girl playing Faye in Secret Circle was giving me serious early Cordelia Chase vibes. The bad girl you love to hate and hate to love.
REALLY enjoyed the Secret Circle pilot – I think a lot of people will. Though I’m biased toward CW shows that start with S and end with L-E.
As more reviews come in the post will be updated.
