However, not all Gen 1 characters were left behind - I was thrilled to see Effy Stonem brought back, as well as her dorky and hilarious pal Pandora. Season three really revolves around Effy and her transformation from girl to woman (however rocky that may be). Almost as soon as the season begins she finds herself the center of a destructive love triangle with best friends Freddy and Cook, but as the season draws to a close, we get a glimpse that there may be more going on in Effy's mind than just your average teenage angst. Kaya Scodelario perfects the enigmatic Effy in this season and continues to make her, in my opinion, one of the most intriguing characters of the whole show.
My favorite additions to this season are Freddy and Cook. Freddy (Luke Pasqualino) has instant chemistry with Effy and their attraction gives the season a lot of its momentum as well as drama, causing problems for several other characters in its wake. Cook, played to absolute perfection by Jack O'Connell, is an instant bad-boy favorite. He drinks, smokes, and curses his way through life not caring about anything or anyone, meanwhile vying for Effy's affections, much to Freddy's dismay.
This show has always had the trifecta of plotline, character development, and dialogue.Read more ›
FYI for those who have seen Seasons 1 and/or 2, the characters are entirely different. Every 2 seasons they switch out all the characters for new ones. Personally, I find Seasons 3 and 4 to be better than the original seasons 1 and 2 but both are worth watching and owning in my opinion.
It's hard to say exactly what the problem is. I know part of it is that there's no one with the charm of Sid or the chemistry between him and Tony. Most of the leads seem very self-centered and one-dimensional. Some of them, like JJ, are pretty neat and fun to spend time with, but others just aren't. Effy is annoying, Freddy is too emo to live (as it were), Naomi is basically just there but doesn't do much. Basically the cast just isn't as interesting as they were in the first two series.
But that's not to say that this a bad set of stories. It's quite good, actually. You do get quite a lot of angst and lots of times when you want to throttle everyone on screen, and it's definitely not as deep as the first two series, but it does have its charms and some moments of real humor and emotion.
Overall it's still something I'd recommend, because even if it's not as good as the first two series, it's still better than much of what's out there.
