Secret CirclePlenty of teenage girls would love to discover a bunch of magical powers lying dormant within. But not Cassie on "The Secret Circle." She wants nothing to do with the guys and gals who've explained to her that she's the missing link to their magic carpet ride around the boat town of Chance Harbor, where generations of witches have been up to tricks of the sometimes-lethal variety for years.

The second episode of the series from the producers of "The Vampire Diaries" (based, like that CW show, on young adult novels by L.J. Smith) finds newcomer Cassie still rejecting what everyone was telling her last week was her destiny "written in the stars," including a forbidden romance with Adam. The dude has a girlfriend, yet he and Cassie keep ending up in some electric situations—including some magical moments that involve, you know, light bulbs and actual electricity.

Adam's girlfriend, Diana, is the de facto leader of the small-town circle. This week, she's increasingly concerned about the newfound power they've all been dealing with since Cassie's arrival (as she should be after Faye's chemistry class prank). She wants to "bind" the circle (hence the episode's title which apparently isn't a reference to the 1996 movie), which would essentially limit all of the explosive craziness Faye is hellbent on exploring. You see, the resident bad-girl doesn't see a need for limits, rules or "binding" of any kind. Read More.

I am a huge fan of L.J. Smith and have been for 17 years since I was in JR High. I was so excited when I heard they were making some of her books in to tv shows. Finally, i thought, something to fill the void that Buffy left. But when i first watched The Vampire Diaries i was so disapointed at how drasticly they had changed the story. I mean what was wrong with the plot line i had loved for so long? Then The Secret Circle tv show came out ( this story was my favorite Smith series) so i was very excited. However, i tried not to get my hopes up too much because of what they did to the VD. And once again, i feel like they butchered one of my favorite stories! I know the young kids who have just been exposed to LJ Smith since they started to republish her work love it, but I am a pre-twilight fan and I just wish they would stay true to the real books. Why fix something that was never broken.
