  • All About Overcompensating

    All About Overcompensating was a great episode of Privileged and I really enjoyed watching this episode because there was a lot of character development though I feel that it was worse that it had to have been. Megan and Will are officially dating and of course something big comes up. It was touching that Sage felt for Rose though she couldn't do anything to help her, until she came up with a great plan. I look forward to watching the next episode to see what happens!!!!!

  • Will and Megan are together only for him to then go to Brazil for 6 months. Sage tries to help Rose cheat on a test.

    For me, Privileged just gets better and better. I loved seeing Will and Megan go out on a proper date and was really saddenened when he announced that he is going to Brazil for 6 months.

    The story with Sage and Rose is going well too. Sage's brainwave with the bag with the test answers on was just genius. And Laurel using Megan to dig out information on her former lover and father to her daughter was so typical of her

    The episode finished on a cliffhanger. Will Megan be able to intervene to stop Rose cheating in the test? I for one can't wait for next week's episode to find out!moreless
  • This was one of the better episodes in a while.

    Megan and Will finally get together and they are already going through it. I am glad the Megan didn't let Will get away with dating other people it wasn't her at all. I was so shocked to find out that as soon as they get together he has to leave. I think that he is going to ask her to go with him. I am think that the season finally will be her deciding weather or not she will go. This is all guess work on my part, but I can't wait to see if I am right. I don't like that Laural is digging in to the past I just think that it would be too hurtful for everyone involved to find out about her cheating. Even though she had a good reason I just think that it would affect the girls too much and they had already lost a lot.moreless
  • Rose gets a "D" on a test.

    It is starting to feel like the appeal of Privileged is evaporating. The once sweet and clever take on the CW Network's obsession with teen dramas has becoming diluted into just about everything the rest of them are about. This just does not feel like the same kind of show that started in September.

    There were some good things such as Rose going down the bad girl path and Sage had a few funny lines but mostly everything else came off as filler. It felt like I was watching a Josh Schwartz show with how they immediately caused friction in the Megan/Will relationship by having him go to Brazil. I still plan on tuning it but Privileged needs some work.moreless
