Did you guys just see the first season - Six episodes?

BBC America actually mushed part of Season 2 into Season 1 to make.. uhh.. BBSeason 1 or something. I think they took three or four episodes from the second, aired them with Season 1 and called it Season 1. The last epside to air in the US was with the new girl reliving her past.

It was odd how they got rid of half the cast, I wonder if they got a new head writer or producer or something..?

I know Christina Cole quit....I don't blame her!

Cassie was the most dislikable heroine of all time Laughing

I think they must have realised how bad season one was, and that the only character anyone likes is Thelma. Unfortunateley they made it even worse with the redhead chick, her acting was laughable.

The whole show was a missed opportunity from the get go.

Cassie was a despicable character.

and Thelma was a side character never used to her full potential.

Otherwise, a pretty terrible show, by my opinion.

From the reviews I've read you're not missing much.

Cassie became a side character and was eventually replaced, Thelma became a slightly less supporting character and there was a new cast.

Not much of a loss to me, personally. I thought this show was too obsessed with college melodrama, and didn't focus enough on the supernatural witchcraft aspect.

you're right about the college melodrama and lack of supernatural witchcraft stuff. But like I said before, just hard up for supernatural stuff on tv. I dunno anyway, sounds like they were makin' some big mistakes in the process of makin' a tv show. Confused

The series will be returning to BBC America for it's "second season" which is really just the rest of the episodes from the actual second season. It's supposed to finish out it's run during the summer of '07. That's it though, it was axed in the UK after the second season so we've got.. 8 or episodes left and then the series is over for good.

In the meantime they'll be running a marathon of the first on Oct. 29th,

No problem!

Now watch them end the second season on a cliffhanger. Neutral

The show has the worst season finale ever written. I really, honestly, recommended not bothering, unless you can get some pleasure out of just how bad this show is, which I suppose I did.

I gave up an episode before the first series finale.

I couldnt take it anymore.

Season 1 was just annoying. Season 2 has quite a bit of unintentional humour potential.

The episode where Ella gets the pox is a classic.
