America’s teens cast 164 million votes for this Teen Choice 2014 – which may have been the second biggest surprise of the evening (The Other Woman for Teen Choice Comedy Movie? Really?), or maybe third biggest (Choice Movie Villain Donald Sutherland, above, bearing gifts from Panem!). Most of the rest of the evening was pretty much expected: Pretty Little Liars and The Vampire Diaries dominated the TV awards; Divergent, The Fault In Our Stars and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire dominated movies.
Also as usual, the Teen Choice Award show was less boring than most other award shows – except for the one with the Green Slime – and crammed in more awards than any two other awards shows. For a complete list of winners, follow the jump.

Beginning Saturday, October 15, fans of The CW’s dramas – including Ringer, Hart of Dixie, The Secret Circle, The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, Supernatural, 90210 and Nikita – will be able to catch up with them on Netflix. The same day, fans of The Vampire Chronicles, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill and Nikita will be able to marathon their way thought those shows’ past seasons – with previous seasons of Supernatural and 90210 coming available in January, 2012.
At first glance, The CW’s THE SECRET CIRCLE seems to have some of those elements that one would expect a CW show to have: a story built around high school kids, teen angst, a potential love triangle or two, lots of beautiful young people, and a pop soundtrack to highlight it all. But wait! Viewers who haven not set foot in a high school in more than a decade need not run away just yet. Besides, The CW isn’t just for teen girls anymore either — ok, maybe it is, but some of their shows can reach a wider audience! In searching to find the perfect companion to their bonafide hit, The Vampire Diaries, The CW seems to have found their magic show (um, pardon the pun). Once again they turn to Young Adult novel writer L.J. Smith, who penned The Vampire Diaries as well as The Secret Circle. And once again, the TV series will be based on the characters and events established by the novel, but will employ a certain freedom to take it all in a different direction.
The Pilot episode, teleplay by Andrew Miller, which will be airing this evening following the season premiere of The Vampire Diaries, did a terrific job of introducing the characters, establishing the circumstances and history, and offering multiple layers of story that will unfold in the weeks to come. The relationships of characters were beautifully intertwined to offer a wide range of possibilities, and the mysteries and secrets hinted at will have a chance to develop as the season progresses. This Pilot certainly packed a lot of events and information in a short period of time and did it quite adeptly. The entire cast is well-suited to their roles and so far they have great chemistry together. I’ll be honest and say that The Secret Circle doesn’t have the same frenetic pacing and shocking twists and turns of The Vampire Diaries, but that audience, as well as other casual viewers, should have no problem accepting this latest addition to the genre. And even though I haven’t stepped into a high school in a while, I really enjoyed the Pilot episode. It did its job of winning me over and wanting me to know more to the extent that I will be looking forward to seeing how the story unfolds in the weeks to come. If the ultimate goal of any new show is to keep you coming back for more, then The Secret Circle certainly met that goal!
