Okay, so it’s confession time again. This time I want to tell you about this t.v. show that I really did not want to admit to watching, but since you have probably seen me checked into it on GetGlue, I’ve probably been found out by now.
The show is “Pretty Little Liars” on the ABC Family network.
I can’t help it, though. Somehow I just got sucked in.
The show is about these four beautiful high school girls (who I can’t even relate to!) who have a best friend that was killed a year before the first episode begins. But the mystery involving their friend’s disappearance and subsequent death is surrounded by mystery. And the girls themselves have secrets of their own that they aren’t telling about the night their friend, Allison, disappeared.
The show is about how the secrets start piling up and then begin to unravel and about how their dead friend (hereby referred to as “A”) has seemingly come back from the grave to taunt them via text messages and dirty little tricks that mess with their heads.
Again, I did not want to like this one and only watched the first episode out of curiosity. But now I simply cannot get enough of it!
I understand that the television series is based on a series of books by Sara Shepard. I’m not sure if I’ll start reading the books yet or not. But it’s very tempting. I’m sold on the plot, obviously.
I usually don’t like murder mysteries unless there’s some supernatural element involved. So why am I chomping at the bit for next week’s episode of this series?
So now it’s your turn: what’s your guilty television pleasure?
