I was thrilled to see a Pam & Eric backstory, and agree with you Spider about it being an interesting take. Pam was a young lady in the books who had a wealthy and powerful family. She was expect to act proper and marry a man her family had chosen, but she preferred to sneak out and fool around with other guys. Eric found her late one night when she was returning home. She was a little defiant and wild, but no madam.
I'm a bit intrigued by the authority plot. A few of the members are incredible actors. Love Doctore from Spartacus. I think the search for Russell Edgington has *potential* to break it up nicely.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
