Are you familiar with “Pretty Little Liars”tv show? I started watching it (when it first aired), during the summer break of all the other TV shows I’m currently watching, and to be honest it wasn’t exactly love at first sight. However, it was interesting enough to keep me watching it and I’m glad I did, because it turned out to be a very good one.
The series follow the lives of Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily, four girls whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of their queen bee, Alison. One year later, they begin receiving messages from a mysterious figure using the name “A” who threatens to expose their secrets — including long-hidden ones they thought only Alison knew (Source).
The show had a four month break after September, and it continued its 1st season on January 3rd. From then, the story got darker, the fashion way better and the characters more interesting. I can describe the show, as a mixture of Sex and the City, in a more teen way (four basic female characters, who are close friends, each with her own style and personality), and Gossip Girl (don’t tell me you don’t see the resemblance between “A” and “Gossip Girl”? They both have a way to know all the dirty secrets and threatening to expose them. Plus, we don’t have a clue of who they really are. And they both have a Queen bee character. For “Pretty Little Liars” it was Alison, and for “Gossip Girl”, the one and only, Blair Waldorf). Furthermore, Pretty Little Liars takes place mostly in a high school, like Gossip Girl did in the first seasons, and its fashion style has evolved a lot. Each character has a unique and very interesting style, which the audience has begun to imitate, as well as Sex & the City’s and Gossip Girl’s.
