  • All About What You Really, Really Want

    9.5
    All About What You Really, Really Want was a superb episode of Privileged and I really enjoyed watching this episode because there was more displays ofopulence and wealth along with character and plot development. Megan really came through for Rose in this this episode in many ways and even scored for herself perhaps. This was a great character building and pivotal episode. I like how Megan is mentoring the girls especially Rose, though Sage seems to follow suite in the end. I look forward to watching more episodes of this fun series!!!!!!!

  • Rose is threstened to repeat freshmen year and that is when she has to take a stand about what she really really wants

    9.5
    The show is getting better with every episode! Megan, Joanna Garcia, who almost shunned dating from her life in the past is now opening up to see what life is offering. Even the writer's block is over for her because she is starting to embrace life. Although she protested much about Not being attracted to Will, you can see that she is reacting to what happened between him and Lily. She cant say that she wants him b/c that would get her to square one with her and her sister and one man. If she starts flirting with Will, it would look like she is getting back at her sister for stealing her boyfriend some years ago, so she goes for the next best thing (the sub-principle). Sage, as we all knew from the beginning ,is a bad influence on her sister. Although she protests that nobody loves Rose more than her, she puts her sister in risk of repeating her freshmen year. How is that loving? It is only at the end when she sees that she cant drag Rose with her to the other party that she forgoes going out and sits to study with her.moreless
  • Rose ditches a tutoring session to go to a yacht party.

    Privileged delivered another fine installment here as this unique series is both dramatically and comedically entertaining. The cast is perfectly put together with Joanna Garcia playing a lovable, socially-awkward, witty twentysomething. Her character Megan Smith takes complete control of the screen and has you hoping she finds whatever she is looking for on this road.



    Her comic book villain Sage, played by Ashley Newbrough is equally as captivating, yet significantly more evil. Her attempts to foil Megan's plans are often the highlight of CW Tuesdays.



    And then there's the adorable Rose, played by Lucy Kate Hale. The ambitious, yet socially-inclined sophomore faces tough tasks throughout her life and is trying to find the balance between schoolwork and popularity. Her jittery emotions are a constant source of comedy here and you find yourself loving her every move, even when it is the wrong one.



    Privileged does an excellent job separating itself from the rest of the CW lineup and the show seems to be getting better every week.moreless
  • When Rose is notified that she must repeat her freshman year of high school, Megan convinces the principal that Rose should continue her sophomore year. This causes Rose and Megan to consider what they really are searching for in their lives in Florida.moreless

    7.5
    A very good but not quite great episode of "Privileged" that does offer some resolutions to some initial conflicts brought up in the pilot and the ensuing episode. Rose finally makes a decision and gets down to studying for Duke and Megan and Will resolve to just be friends - opening the door for Megan to date Rose and Sage's way too young Principal, Mr. Cassidy. While things did draw to a close nicely, I am sure they have also opened the door to some new conflicts, I'm sure Laurel is not exactly going be psyched that Megan is dating the principal and Sage is not always going want to be the dutiful smarter sister that helps along Rose. Things look to be getting interesting - hopefully.moreless
