    More hilarious writing for the characters. Thelma's lines are funny and witty. We notice that Cassie seems to be getting a little wonky personality-wise. It looks as though she's taking risks that she normally wouldn't have done before 'the curse' of the magic fell upon her. Thanks to the writers 'nancy drew' like situations that Thelma gets into, we do find out more about Azazeal, (fallen angel leader) and how he was conjured and whatnot. The thing I really like about this show and this episode, is that it really does a great job of showing the 'light' vs 'dark' side of this magical situation. What I mean is that, while the girls and guys in school can be catty and mean, they aren't 'evil' it's just that they haven't really grown up yet. In anycase, the characters are becoming more developed and the storyline is progressing nicely. I'm looking forward to the next one.moreless
  • Slows down

    8.0
    While Cassie and Thelma investigate the little girl who attacked them in the previous episode Azazeal continues his plans to get Cassie. The Headmaster and Jo discuss Cassie's situation and Thelma begins to enter the dreams of the girls of the school.

    This episode slows down the pace that was set at the end of episode 1 and because of this could cause the show to lose viewers as not much happens to excite.

    Sure Thelma finds the room where Esther was held many years ago and Cassie finally goes on a date, but it doesn't feel like a lot happens with the actual storyline of the show.moreless
  • Not really getting this show a little to British very slow unfloding. Is this one long novel or will she fight demon weekly?

    5.5
    Ok trying very hard to get this show. A big fan of Charmed and like Buffy aswell. So I am giving this a watch to see if it will be as good. So far it is not. I find it slow and plodding with super hot Cassie dress up like and old maid. I keep waiting for her to unzip the outfit and (tada) stripper girls jumbs out.

    Second complain is why not one wonder about her walking around talking to hweself jeez you think no one notice. Third I little explaintion please on why Thelma need money to get snack food and rofl she is afraid of a ghost what up with that.moreless

  • QUOTES (16)

    • Thelma: Men. In the end they're all arrogant pathetic pigs. Women run the world, men just shit in it.

    • Azazeal: You're not being very friendly are you?
      Cassie: What do you expect?
      Azazeal: Ah yes, poor Thelma. I didn't want to do that but, there you go, sometimes trivial things get in the way. There's nothing more natural than death Cassie, we were all born for it.

    • Thelma: Have you any idea how frustrating it is being a lesbian ghost?

    • (About Thelma)
      Cassie: They want to dedicate a bench to her. They asked me what her favourite spot was, I mean, what am I supposed to say to that?
      Troy: Girl's changing room!

    • Thelma: Azazeal said it was no accident you found the canary.
      Cassie: Canari.
      Thelma: Yeah, that.
      Cassie: Well what does that mean?
      Thelma: I don't know, but he's a man and they never make sense.

    • Thelma: Been stalked by any fallen angels recently?
      Cassie: I seem to attract them.

    • Roxanne: (About Cassie) Oh God, has she still got a face like a slapped arse?
      Gemma: She's so bloody miserable. Puts me off my vodka.
      Roxanne: Takes a lot to do that.

    • Thelma: I don't think I'm exploiting this ghost thing enough. I could perform a naked Haka in the headmaster's office and no one would know.
      Cassie: Because that's something you've always wanted to do?
      Thelma: I think Jo Watkins would appreciate it much more. See, I can still make you smile.
      Cassie: That was a grimace.

    • (About Jo)

      Cassie: You're kidding. How do you know that?

    • (About Cassies' Mum)
      David: She's still a fruitcake?
      Jo: She is undergoing treatment, yes.

    • Thelma: Cassie, you never watched me play netball.
      Cassie: You were crap!

    • Thelma: You should be grateful I can't grope you!
      Cassie: Believe me, I am.

    • Thelma: I've always been suspicious of little girls in white dresses.

    • Troy: (About Leon) He sings in his sleep you know!
