Pretty Little Liars

OMG....If only Gossip Girl could be this sultry. LIE. Lie..liar.. What's that they say..never trust a pretty girl with an ugly secret?

From the get go you have Ari getting in over head with some guy at the local bar's loo. Hot and heavy. Lucy Hale plays Ari who's back from Iceland. As the story progresses we learn..she just made out with her new English teacher..and she knows what her dad, Chad Lowe did in his car with a student last year. But her parents Chad and Holly Combs are putting things back together. Just an inkling of Picket Fences might prevail....because they have a secret...(Troian Avery Bellisario, Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson and Shay Mitchell) and they know Amber knows all. Even their secrets now. But could Jenna have something to do with it? That must be where the secret starts. And yet we learn at the end that their missing friend is dead. Or is she? Jenna shows up, blind at the funeral.

I definitely thought the show was well written and showed some real girl problems, falling in lust or love with the wrong guy, shop-lifting, over-eating and even a playful lesbian story-line that was well needed.

Honestly, I was shocked by ABC Family. Granted, I'm a GREEK lover, but I seriously felt the network failed with the uber-preachy saga of THE SECRET LIFE OF AN AMERICAN TEENAGER. Still am not a fan of that show. But this just might be what the doctor ordered for the summer. A mystery. With little secrets at every turn.
