I've been very lukewarm toward Secret Circle thus far. The characters are incredibly underdeveloped, the show is 90% backstory, and there's essentially just one guy. And he hasn't done anything. This week, though, there was a plot point that surprised me and a moment that made me laugh. Pat on the back, SC. This comes on the heels of your one really great line last week. Things are looking up.
I also appreciate what they did with Adam and Jake last week. Thanks to Chris Zylka, I'm beginning to think all mediocre actors should be given playful psychopaths to play before they move on to things like genuine emotion. Jake was much better as a self-loathing, evil murderer than he was at whatever he was doing last week.
