The Secret Circle'

Ryan: DVR It
It's good companion for 'The Vampire Diaries' and a good lead performance from Britt Robertson.
Furlong: Watch It
I got completely sucked in to this pilot, and am totally entranced with the cast, the history of the circle and having Britt Robertson (Lux!) back on my TV.
Bentley: Watch It
It's not action-packed -- it essentially sets the story up for the season to come. I trust Kevin Williamson, so I'm sure the excitement will ramp up more. Plus, the 'Vampire Diaries' pilot was kind of terrible and look at it now! 'Secret Circle' shows plenty of promise.
Harnick: Skip It
Not totally sold on the premise, but I bet I would've loved this show when I was in junior high.
Prudom: Watch It
For those who love 'The Vampire Diaries,' 'TSC' will be right up your alley. There's plenty of spooky intrigue and a hot young cast (some of whom are trying a little too hard, but I'll give them a couple of episodes to tone it down), though it's more reminiscent of 'The Craft' than 'Charmed.
