Episode 1090: More Premieres From The CW...

The Graveyard Book was excellent! It's the kind of book whose ending leaves you wanting more, although like with quite a few of the children's books I've read so far, that ending feels too, well, convenient, for lack of a better word. I think I've read enough to keep up for the first two weeks of term, assuming I get that module. Am now watching the pilot of The Secret Circle, where the magic starts out as lame as on The Vampire Diaries, and then quickly gets a lot cooler. (Nice to see Gale Harold on TV again, after being criminally underused in Hellcats. He's definitely starting to get typecast though, but I suppose on The CW, every cast member is reducible to some sort of archetype anyway. Also, how is it possible that Thomas Dekker looks even younger now than he did on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles?) Granted, that show, as the season premiere demonstrated, has more than enough going for it already, even without the witch aspect. Intrigued by Jeremy's seeing the ghosts of his deceased girlfriends though, and it'll be interesting to see where that goes.
