Around the YA blogosphere, talk about the new ABC Family Show, Pretty Little Liars has been rampant. Everyone has been talking about it and blogs like Alea from Pop Culture Junkie and The Story Siren have even participated in a fun game put on by ABC Family to celebrate the series premiere and all of the activity and buzz around the internet definitely had me curious to see how the show would be.
This series is based on the Pretty Little Liars series written by YA author, Sara Shepard. I found the following blurb about the TV show on the ABC Family website.
Check it out:
Rosewood is a perfect little town. So quiet and pristine, you'd never guess it holds so many secrets. Some of the ugliest ones belong to the prettiest girls in town -- Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily, four estranged friends whose darkest secrets are about to unravel.
One year ago, Alison, the Queen Bee of their group, disappeared and the girls swore they'd never tell what really happened that night. They thought their secrets would bond them together, but just the opposite is true. Then again, who's to say what the truth is in Rosewood. It seems everyone in town is lying about something.
Now, as the mystery surrounding Alison's disappearance resurfaces, the girls begin getting messages from "A," saying – and threatening – things only Alison would know. But it couldn't be Alison. Could it? Whoever it is, they seem to know all the girls' secrets, and seem to be watching their every move. The girls are friends again, but will they be there for each other if their dark secrets come to light?
After the show ended, I nodded. It was pretty good. I mean, the whole teacher/student thing is kind of iffy to me but I'm curious enough about the show to keep watching. At least for the next little while. I'm not sure if this is a show that I'll continue to watch because I can see myself losing interest but for now, it's caught my attention and I'll be tuning.
Did anyone else watch this show? What are your thoughts?
