A Favorite Mystery Show

Pretty Little Liars is a relatively new show airing on ABC Family, and based on a series of books. It' centers around four best friends; artsy Aria, athletic Emily, book smart perfectionist Spencer, shop lifting "it girl" Hanna, and the secret that has a mysterious stalker, known as 'A', blackmailing them. The girls had secrets hidden from their parents, a secret that could land them all in jail, questions about their sexuality, nasty habit's of stealing, and relationships with people they should never have been involved with. The show is currently in it's second season, and is only getting better. It seems like more people then we could have ever imagined are involved in this plot to harm the girls and now everybody is a suspect. You can watch the girls try to unmask the mysterious A, while trying keep all their lies being unfolded.

I'm not gonna lie, I was very reluctant to watch this show, mostly because of the fact that I've never cared much for ABC Family's original shows. They're too wholesome, and try too hard to be inspirational TV, so they've never held my interest. But Pretty Little Liars, was addictive, interesting, and intriguing from the start. It wasn't a show about "all american teens" with "real life problems", acted out in completely unrealistic situations, like The Secret Life Of An American Teenager, or Greek. Pretty Little Liars is fun, mysterious and nail biting suspense, all while being appropriate for a young audience. I will be watching until the end. :-)
