If you haven't already seen it, you NEED Pretty Little Liars in your life! ;)
I was pretty addicted after just a few episodes, and watched the full 6 seasons [or 5 and a half if we're being picky] in a couple of months.
If you haven't heard of it, Pretty Little Liars is an American drama / mystery / thriller, based on a series of books by author Sara Shepard back in 2006.
It's quite tricky to explain what the show is about without giving anything away, but basically a clique of teenage girls from Rosewood begin to fall apart after the disappearance of their 'queen bee' leader, super bitch, Alison diLaurentis leads to them beginning to receive threatening messages from an anonymous source, signing off with the name '-A'. The girls set out to find out who this mystery 'A' is that seems to know all of their darkest secrets and threatens to ruin their lives and those who are close to them. And over time, A does exactly that!
Every episode is met with twists and turns, new suspects and you constantly change your theory throughout each series! It's one of those box sets you could watch without stopping, if you had the time of course. I only managed to watch it during 'nap times' and before bed :)
Each series finale is met with an explosive cliff-hanger or plot twist, some of them have been absolutely amazing! The last 2 episodes of Season 5 were just genius!!
If you don't fall in love with the girls [massive girl crush on Aria over here!!], you'll most definitely be crushing on the guys. I've fallen slightly in love with Tyler Blackburn who plays Hanna's boyfriend, Caleb. But it's hard not to question every character at some point. The amount of times I said, 'It's him!' and 'She's definitely A!' convinced I knew who it was - needless to say I was wrong!
The identity of A was finally revealed at the end of Season 6a. It was a shock, although I have to admit there is still a lot of questions unanswered and it was a bit overwhelming with the amount of information they tried to squeeze in to explain things, it made my head hurt slightly!!
BUT, Pretty Little Liars is back this month with the 2nd part of Season 6. The girls are now five years on since the identity of A was revealed and after they'd all moved away from Rosewood, something, or someone, brings them all back together.
I'm stupidly excited about the new series!
If you're looking for a new box set to get into, give Pretty Little Liars a go if you:
*liked shows/films such as Gossip Girl / Mean Girls / Vampire Diaries
*like a bit of eye candy
*love a good plot twist
*love a box set that keeps you guessing
And if you've watched it, you have to read THIS, this person was in my head during the A reveal!! :)[obviously do not read it if you haven't yet watched it - contains spoilers!]
So, what are you loving watching?
Have you seen PLL? What did you think?
