Very Pleasantly Surprised
4 November 2017 | by tinevisceSee all my reviews

At the outset, I should mention that this review is only for the first two seasons: I fell in love with the original cast and I refuse to watch the third season which replaces all my favourite actors.

I remember watching the first episode sometime way back in 2013 or 2014 (around the time when it first aired, I should think) and then promptly forgot all about it. (I'm in India where it's rather difficult to come across Australian programming)

I found this again on Netflix two weeks back and I was hooked!

No praise is enough for the crackling cast: and they're so young! As far as I could see, they more or less were the age their characters were: and that was such a pleasant surprise compared to the 30 year old's playing at 16 on the CW (*cough* Vampire Diaries *cough*) Everybody played their parts amazingly well with no hint of camera awkwardness etc. A talented, good-looking bunch of young men and women- I hope they'll go really far in the industry.

I'd also like to commend the writers for creating really down-to- Earth characters (no angst-for-the-sake-of-angst nonsense American teen shows indulge in) who were likable! I loved seeing teens with more-or-less well adjusted lives with the usual problems with relationships; because that's what reality is usually like, right? I genuinely grew fond of the characters and rooted for them throughout the two seasons.

The plot-lines were also really well-done and kept me guessing a lot of the times. Nicely done!

The witchcraft bits, I feel, could have been better depicted or written- the show made it a tad too campy...but that's all right, really.

Highly recommended
