The men are young and smoothly shaven, with the babyish allure that officially means I'm too old for this shiz. The woman are beautiful and backstabbing, with the exception of likable everygirl Mary whose wide-eyed stare and pouty, pouty lips clearly indicate she's our cast-upon heroine. And don't forget the inclusion of the requisite supernatural elements that litter this show. I think it's in the CW handbook that every program in the 2013-2014 schedule has to include at least one touch of fantasticism. Super powers. Vampires. The 80's. Nostradamus. It's all part of the plan. The plan to make regular life as boring and unbearable as possible, because if there's one thing teens are too guilty of these days it's being satisfied with themselves and their lives. They need more inspiration to feel completely misunderstood and lacking.
All that aside, this does have potential for trashy fun. The kind of trashy fun I will never admit watching to my parents or my respectable friends. Or to enjoying, as I invariably will do (have you seen those over-the-top sets and mysterious spying screens?). I'll just have to try and get over the fetuses that have been cast as the love interests. Now excuse me while I get my dentures and settle in for my weekly dose of moving stories.
