After all the mayhem and emotional catharsis of last week’s stellar episode, things are starting to get back to normal on The Vampire Diaries. Of course, normal for this show still means eating your ex-boyfriend and being chased by mythical vampire hunters, so normal is on a bit of a sliding supernatural scale.…

Welcome to the TV Roundtable, where some of TV Club’s writers tackle episodes that all deal with a central theme. The theme for the first eight installments is adolescence.
While a final decision has
yet to be announced on the fates of Ringer, Hart Of Dixie, and The Secret Circle, [Scratch that: See update below.] The CW has ended speculation on at least one of its bubble shows by renewing Nikita for a third season. The Maggie Q-starring action series will return alongside previously…
There is a rollercoaster, the Grizzly, at a park called King’s Dominion in Virginia. Very traditional—it’s wooden, rickety as hell, and not exactly a going attraction at the park. There aren’t any loops or even tricks, except the brief flash through a dark tunnel. But it’s weirdly one of the most fun rides there, and…

After last week’s chase for the crystals, “Prom” slows things down to idle, passes through the ol’ navigational buoys of finale set-up, and then accelerates into a whole series of emotional revelations, confrontations, and the kidnapping of everyone’s favorite character.

From the starting pistol on, “Traitor” nails everything Secret Circle could be and should be.

Just before the last break in episodes, Zap2It’s Carina Mackenzie said something on Twitter about The Secret Circle that threads together a lot of the chutes and ladders of this frustrating show: If you approach The Secret Circle as a witch-problem-of-the-week show as opposed to a The Vampire Diaries type show, you…

Last fall, I thought the pilot for The Secret Circle was, at least, promising in a second-hand-trash kind of way. It didn’t promise anything original, but at moments such as the murder of Cassie’s mother and the little love idyl with Cassie and Adam in the woods, it looked as if there might be fresh spins along the…

I generally find The Secret Circle difficult to write about. It’s like a dinner comprised of 85 percent bland food (wheat toast without jam, broiled chicken without seasoning, and so forth), then a quiche, fresh salsa, and some red velvet cake. And all you can say afterward is, “Well. We ate that.”
