When it comes to witches, it's really hard to not picture the classic get-up used in The Wizard of Oz. The pointy hat ... the green skin ... it's just classic stuff, man. However, truly evil witches aren't played for camp value. In fact, they can be downright frightening.
Halloween falls on a Monday this year, which means the holiday episodes of most TV shows are airing the week before, including those on The CW, but that doesn't mean genre fans don't have more to look forward to, as evidenced by the just released synopses of "The Vampire Diaries" Episode 3.08, "Ordinary People", and "The Secret Circle" Episode 1.08, "Beneath", both airing on November 3rd. "Supernatural" Episode 7.07, "The Mentalists", which bows November 4th, isn't sounding too shabby either.
Since "The Secret Circle" series is premiering on The CW tonight (September 15th) right after "The Vampire Diaries", we have put together a neat package of our past coverage to help you decide whether or not to stay put for the extra hour.

As far as this writer's concerned, last night's finale of "True Blood" went a long way toward righting what was wrong with Season 4 -- assuming that the people who apparently died stay dead -- and did a good job setting up the events of Season 5, coming June 2012. Want to relive some of what transpired? Here we have for you a recap of "And When I Die" along with an "Inside the Episode" video with writer Raelle Tucker and director Scott Winant.
From everything we're hearing about "The Secret Circle", it sounds like once we get through the first couple of episodes, we can expect shit to be hitting the fan in typical Kevin Williamson fashion. First, though, we have to get to know the characters, and helping in that regard is today's video interview with Jessica Parker Kennedy, who introduces us to Melissa, bad girl Faye's best friend.
