Pilot Watch: ‘The Secret Circle’

      The CW’s newest teen supernatural offering is based from a book series that I truly can’t believe I never read as a youth. Fantastical teenage adventures with witchcraft?

Splash Down: A review of Modern Family’s “Moon Landing”

In order to handle the emotional intensity of Friday Night Lights, I’ve been interspersing FNL with Season One of Modern Family.
