I want expecting much when it came up as a suggestion in my prime lists. if you're a homophob, not for you. if you're not into girl power, strong women, not for you. if you're racist, not going to be for you. if you like fantasy, crossed with "crime" solving, military-ish with superwomen? you're in luck. it's surprisingly engaging. charmed with a while lot more kick-assery going on.

wow i must say i wasnt expecting much from this show actually but this was breathtaking the story the action the plot everything was flawless i loved the beautiful ladies and the action i cant wait till wednesday from now on

Despite the season preview at the end of the pilot previewing some intriguing "witchy" scenes ahead I think I'm going to pass. Wasn't certain beforehand how YA oriented this will be but from what I've seen that is certainly the target audience (if I had known it would air on Freeform I wouldn't have bothered - just thought that this being at SXSW would mean something different..). Lots of stuff gets skipped over or is handled superficially which is weird for a show declaring sisterhood/their squad to be something crucial.

Good first episode. I was expecting mediocre CGI, stiff acting and lots of lesbians. I only got lesbians so far. Color me surprised. Let's see if it keeps up.

OMG, teen melodrama on witchcraft fantasy genre background. Overall story excruciatingly boring. Coming of age stuff, is caretural. It's bad.

I thought it was absolutely fantastic, great acting and storyline

I just finished the first episode. I can't believe how much character development went into the first episode. So far the material is fresh and current. The acting and special effects are far and away better than most shows in the past decade. Keeping politics out of this, the show is about the U.S. military and it's struggle against an encroaching terrorist group called the Spree. The twist is that the U.S. military is comprised solely of witches. The Spree seem to be comprised of witches as well. I'm interested to see where this series goes.

The lesbian stuff is overblown not that it mattered. It was a little bit light on character development, but there wasn’t much time before the action started, so I was okay with how it was handled. The show moves at a quick pace and good story line as far as I’m concerned. I loved it. Definitely worth a watch.

This was actually decent, with a really interesting ending. It had a few lows with some lazy dialogue and writing, but overall was much better than expected. It feels like the next season will open up the story properly. First season had a lot of character development and some really good twists. Not just the lesbian witch show I thought it will be from the trailer.
