Devin Williams: The plot was interesting enough but what let the story down was limited and repetitive rhetoric. Everyone bites their lip, everyone murmers, half of the characters had catty attitudes (even the men), and the love triangles made Rachel seem a lot like Kate from the TV show "Lost" and not in a good...
