I hate the guy that murdered Cassie's mother. When I say I hate him, I don't mean it in the sense that he's a well written villain that I love to hate. I hate him in the sense that he seems like a one dimensional villain from some kids cartoon. He comes off as a pure evil super villain, with no redeeming qualities. I also hate his character, because of the way other characters react to him.
When he murdered Cassie's mom, why didn't she use her witch powers to save herself? Why didn't she try to run out of the house? She acted like a chicken with its head cut off.
I would like to see a little more complexity and subtlety from the villain.
I was disappointed that a love triangle was set up during the first episode of this show. I worry that The Secret Circle is going to quickly turn into a soap opera.
Upon first meeting Cassie, Adam's father started talking about how Cassie's mother and him were supposed to be together, and that Cassie and his son, Adam, were destined to be together, because "it was written in the stars." Later on Cassie tells Adam that his father is "sweet, and that's a good thing." Um, no. The proper response would have been: "Your dad's kind of creepy."
I'll give this show 1, maybe 2 more episodes to start getting good. On the plus side, the main character, Cassie, is pretty easy on the eyes.
