Got a secret, can you keep it? Iâm in love with Pretty Little Liars. And I canât be alone: In the last few weeks, every conversation Iâve had about TV has somehow wound its way to ABC Familyâs dark little soapy teen drama. The mystery! The ridiculously hot English teacher! The obvious red herrings that weâre falling for anyway! Argh, I even love the Big Chill-homage (almost) opening titles.
The showâs not going to be taking home a Peabody anytime soon, but remember the trashy intrigue of that first season of Desperate Housewives? Remember dying to know what big bad secret Serena was keeping on the first season of Gossip Girl? Remember when Pacey hooking up with his teacher was like, national news? I remember all these things fondly, and PLL scratches those same itches, but with spookier undercurrents. More, please.
Have you fallen for Liars the way I have, PopWatchers? Itâs edging out Make It or Break It for me, largely because its characters are way less predictable. Is it taking top teen honors for you?
