Now that I’m out of school, I can finally get into a summer series. My next pick? Pretty Little Liars. The show made its debut this past Tuesday with their pilot on ABC Family. Before you jump to any conclusions, just know that it might not be considered family “friendly.” Within the first ten minutes it was already getting steamy!
The show is based on a book, which I had never read. Synopsis: There are five best friends and one day one of the friends goes missing. Flash forward a year later, the girl is still missing, but the four remaining receive unusual texts from an unknown sender “A” who they believe is their missing friend Alison.
I always get a little worried with these types of series because I’m left wondering how long the show can actually go on? Sooner or later there has to be an ending right? The pilot was surprising and a little shocking. The acting is not as bad as The Secret Life of an American Teenager. My only problem with the show is that I feel that the characters are much more mature than they should be. Aside from not even looking like 16, they are behaving like they are in their mid-20’s.
