And that brings us to present day me, spending hours after each work day marathon watching Seasons 1 and 2 of the show. (Season 3 just came in at the library!)
Pretty Little Liars is the story of four friends torn apart, and brought together again, by the murder of a close friend (who might have been described as their “Ringleader”). As the girls dig deeper into what happened to their friend, Alison DiLaurentis, they begin getting anonymous texts that bully and break them into submission.
A person or persons known as ‘A’ wants the girls isolated and obedient. And all I want to know is…WHO THE HECK IS ‘A’?!!’
As I’m watching the drama unfold, I’ve come to love and hate a few things about this show, and I needed to get them off my chest.
Reasons I Love Pretty Little Liars
1. The Clothes
I would love, love, LOVE the wardrobe of these girls! I know it’s TV, but they NEVER wear the same outfit twice! Spencer’s all studious hipster with the biggest selection of blazers I’ve ever seen and coveted. Emily’s all adora-letic in her sporty tee’s and jeans. Hanna dresses like she’s constantly on a blind date at a fancy restaurant. And Aria is fashion forward with fitted dresses, leather jackets, and one wacky shoe collection!
2. The Boys
I must admit that Pretty Little Liars has some Pretty Handsome Eye-Candy. And no, I will not be ashamed for looking.
3. The Villains
Some of the suspicious on the list of ‘A’-possibles include: Jenna – the girl who was blinded by a bad prank gone wrong, Garrett – Jenna’s boyfriend and crooked cop who keeps messing with evidence, it might even be Alison’s own brother, Jason, or Spencer’s sister, Melissa.
4. The Semi-Connection to my old love, Charmed
As a teenager, I loved watching the show, Charmed – the story of three witch sisters who kicked demon butt. One of the sisters, Piper, was played by Holly Marie Combs. Now I get to watch Holly on Pretty Little Liars in the role of Ella Montgomery, Aria’s mom!
Reasons I Hate Pretty Little Liars
1. The Clothes
Ok, this one is on both sides because while I love the clothes, it irritates me that these are High School girls whose wardrobes are bigger than the one I have now! Who’s paying for these rags?!
2. The Incredibly Poor Ability to Hide Oneself
Why are they ALWAYS hiding behind the bushes?! Hello, WE SEE YOU!
And every girl leaves her curtains wide open! Um, if you’re being stalked both in real life and in cyber-space, close your effing curtains!
3. Alison DiLaurentis
I can’t stand Ali! This is the girl who brought them all together as friends, and later, was murdered. She was manipulative, selfish, and conniving. But she looks like bubblegum. It irritates the crap out of me.
I guess the love portion wins this round, but there’s still 2 seasons more to go…
What’s your take? Do you watch Pretty Little Liars? What do like about the show? What do you dislike?
Who’s your favorite character? Mine’s Spencer. And Caleb!
