You’ll certainly know it when the film gets to it, but what’s especially cool is that writer/director Rian Johnson manages to come up with a new answer to the old moral conundrum. How we get there is a tale in itself. Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), our protagonist and […]Read On »

Smith Director: David Barrett  Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: October 6, 2010 THE SECRET CIRCLE continues to be an entertaining show, even though they are parceling out the story a little bit at a time.

Smith Director: Liz Friedlander Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: September 22, 2010 Yes, THE SECRET CIRCLE has real promise. The theme song is wonderfully creepy, and it helps to set a tone that hasn’t quite completely manifested on the show yet.
