I can’t believe That’s Normal has been live since July & I haven’t talked about Pretty Little Liars yet. All this time you’ve gotten to know me and my love for things other than Vampires, I’ve never confessed my love for the over-dramatization, the questions they ask and never answer, the scandal between characters, the number of bodies that this tiny Pennsylvania town has racked up plus all the shirtless, fine-looking men in Pretty Little Liars.
If you’ve never watched PLL you’re kinda behind but here’s a quick recap:
The show begins with the disappearance of Alison Dilaurentis, a maniacal sociopath hidden behind gorgeous blonde hair and flawless skin. Okay I’m the one who calls her that but everyone knows it’s true. She turns up dead leaving her 4 best friends to wonder what happened the night she left their sleepover in the middle of the night. Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily begin to get texts and messages from a mysterious “A” who proceeds to haunt them every episode, kill their friends & the suspects for Ali’s murder, break up their relationships, threaten to spill their secrets and try to shut them up/ hurt them or even kill them. All the while the girls are apparently too afraid to do what normal teenagers in this situation with a murdered BFF would do: go to the police. Over the years we’ve discovered that you can trust no one & “A” is most likely multiple people, following the lead of ONE leader.
So now that you’re caught up, can we just talk about some observations I’ve recently had?
I love the other girl’s fashion but I CANNOT with Aria. Is this a cropped colored-demin jacket with cotton sleeves and a little pop of CLEAVAGE peeing out beneath?
I realize she is straight in real life (actually I have no idea. Maybe a girl can dream…)
How many times will their girlfriends be killed/almost killed/they be almost murdered/tires slashed/put into boxes with dead guys before they DO something?
We’ll discuss him in more detail later.. just enjoy the above for now.
I’m not feeling him this season. I think his hair is too short.
But no seriously
ARE the girls the dumbest girls in the world?? Going into a basement following a woman who five seconds ago accused Aria & her friends of trying to kill her and is now taking care of Aria and living in the Montgomery house while Aria’s mom just teaches English and hooks up with young dudes? REALLY? Girls get a clue- this is not how real life works. That woman is crazy and about to lock you in the basement. At LEAST make her go down first.
Meredith is A right? Or part of the team? And she’s setting up Aria’s Dad? Or….. is she just a deranged girl trying to protect Byron from getting blamed in a situation where he looks REALLY GUILTY? Did Byron really go through Aria’s things or did Meredith take the diary entries and make it all up?
WHERE ARE THE GIRL’S PARENTS? The NORMAL ones? Like Hanna’s mom who does normal things like steal from a bank and sleep with a police office as to not get turned in?
And WHERE is Spencer’s sister? Don’t tell me she’s in “Bucks County” or “Center City Philadelphia” and can’t make it over to say hi every once & awhile, PLL, writers because I KNOW that it takes max 45 min to get from “Rosewood” to Bucks County with traffic and center city is 15 minutes by train. Also no high school kids ever go on dates to Rittenhouse square.
Is Toby really bad? I know it would be cliche to have him eventually admit he was playing along to keep Spencer “safe,” but that’s what I want him to admit. I can’t handle Spencer being sad:
Mostly because that means we’ll get much less of Toby shirtless.
And WHERE is Ezra? Making more babies with high school girlfriends he’ll never know about? Letting his family pay off said girlfriends like it’s 1924?
And do they REALLY let formerly instituted teens who tried to kill their best friends BACK into the school where said best friends attend when they’re “better” and “medicated?” [And is it REALLY that easy to sip out of an asylum?]
And despite the inconsistencies in the story and the ridiculous of it all… I will continue to watch. For reasons other than Toby’s abs. And Ezra’s abs (if we ever see them again) and Caleb’s shower scenes. And Wren the hot doctor. There are other reasons, guys.
Pretty Little Liars is on ABC Family at 8pm on Tuesdays. You are 4 seasons behind but it’s one of the greatest shows on TV right now. And I mean that on the rating scale where Bunheads is the worst and Vampire Diaries is the best. It falls right behind Vampire Diaries with episodes with hot vampire sex. And if Caleb/Ezra/Toby are shirtless and Wren makes an appearance, it could rival VD that week.
Are you watching Pretty Little Liars? Can we please discuss how I don’t think you can guess what is going to happen in this show because it seems like the writers change their minds every week & will continue to do so until the show is cancelled?
