Pretty Little Liars

I've mentioned a couple of times that Nate and I got rid of cable and are selectively choosing shows to watch online and buy on DVD. So forgive me if I'm a little late on the uptake with this one but…have you all seen Pretty Little Liars? This show rocks! It's like someone combined I Know What You Did Last Summer and Jawbreaker into a series. That doesn't suck. And doesn't have people hopping out with knives every five seconds.

It's a little bit Gossip Girl (without all the scandal) with the best parts of Dawson's Creek. It's a chick show, that's for sure. In my favorite episode, “The Perfect Storm,” a bunch of frenemies get trapped in the high school together with this bizarrely invasive detective (he doesn't seem to have any concept of Miranda rights or search warrant restrictions, but whatever) who keeps following the girls around suspiciously trying to figure out what happened to Allison. Join the club, man. My favorite character struggles with self-esteem and her sexuality, while some love triangles play out along with some family drama. All in a day's work. I love it when multiple plot points come to a head at once. It's like the final episode of The Bachelorette…times ten.

Missed some of the nail-biting suspense from last season? Make sure to get all caught up here: If you've already watched last season, don't tell me what happens! The winter premiere of this season is Jan 2 (it'll be showing on Mondays) at 8/7c on ABC Family.

I have been hired by Warner Bros WBWord division to raise awareness for ‘Pretty Little Liars.' All opinions are my own.
