Pretty Little Liars


I have a confession. I am obsessed with a show that was designed for 16-year-old girls...and I am 26. But I'm not alone! Pretty Little Liars on ABC Family seems to be doing really well in it's first two weeks on air. In fact, Kate, of Nautical by Nature, and our pal, Amanda, even set up a PLL viewing party this week. We re-watched the first episode, followed by the second as we chomped on pizza. Good times!

Based on the book series created by Sara Shepard, the show chronicles four female friends (Spencer, Hannah, Aria, and Emily) who used to be five, until the fifth, Allison, goes missing. The remaining four lose touch and grow apart - that is until Allison's body appears a year later and they all start receiving threatening text messages from "A". Is it her? Is she really alive? Or is someone playing a cruel joke on them? That's the mystery that drives the show!

This new phenomenon has all the makings of a Gossip Girl-esque show: cattiness, hot guys, privilege, and most importantly, drama...in every sense of the word.

So far there have only been two episodes, both of which have been great! Pretty Little Liars definitely leaves you longing for more. It seems that each week is going to be a mini cliffhanger. If you need any info, ABC Family has you covered. You can even watch past episodes online. If you want to follow on Twitter, they are @ABCFpll. And of course, be sure to follow me @jointhegossip ;)

Who else is watching?

On a side note...I am out of town for work this weekend. I'll be at The Underwear Affair in Edmonton! When I get back I'll reply to comments and visit your blogs. Have a great weekend =)

OMG…I love this show too! I DVR’d the first episode for fun to see if I would like it and I was instantly hooked. I need to know more about Jenna. I still have one episode to watch and then I should be caught up. I love that you ladies had a viewing party. So fun!
