Critic Reviews for Pretty Little Liars Season 3

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Despite its innocuous and frankly hilarious title, Pretty Little Liars has proved that it's a force to be reckoned with.

Sep 9, 2013 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

For a première, though, this felt a lot like filler. The liars have been turned left, then right, then left again so many times that it's hard to determine exactly what they are even after anymore.

Pretty Little Liars' third season went out with a (literal) fiery bang Tuesday.

Mar 20, 2018 | Full Review…

All these reveals started happening and I got this strange yet familiar feeling, this satisfaction mixed with frustration.

Mar 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Pretty Little Liars has finally moved from mysteriously complex to downright improbable.

Sep 9, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Our favorite little liars have finally returned to Rosewood and, damn, do they know how to make an entrance! The season three premiere of Pretty Little Liars wasted no time dropping this foursome into a pile of trouble.

Audience Reviews for Pretty Little Liars: Season 3

  • May 18, 2019
    One of the best seasons of this show. Dark, mysterious, and interesting.
  • Jul 02, 2018
    Need to focus on the worst character in the series for at least the first 5 episodes? Emily may even have convinced the first season as the young lesbian inside the closet, but after that play all that blah-blah-blah-babe already tired. Clearly the worst season ever. Obs: I loved the episode in which Spencer discovers that Toby is in the time -A.

    Pretty little liars was one of the best TV shows. I freaking love that show I was so hurt that it ended. It was so scary you never knew what was going to happen next best thing every. I like how the four girls stuck together and didn’t tell on each other. Keep the secret they was some good liars to, but I guess that’s says it in the name. of the tv show Emily fields was my favorite character she was so down to earth an humble an when A killed her girlfriend that made me so mad because she was so hurt and that was the first girl she was herself with an A also killed Emily’s dad most heartbreaking episode every Martha Stewart really did her thing on that tv show no to show like it I’m grateful to have been on the pll train an watch it A did some terrible things to them girls but no matter what they stayed strong through it all took what every came there way no matter what pretty littler liars is a to show that I can watch over and over again they also was some good actors I really enjoyed the show.

    This show was awesome. I loved watching every minute of it. I really like the characters - how they dress, how they interact, and the different personalities (how they react differently in different situations).

    Only gets better with every season. I love the main characters, positive female role models, and interesting story lines! Love it!
  • Jan 29, 2016
    A Great show! Defiantly lives up to the first two seasons!
  • Jun 19, 2015
    Just as thrilling as the first two seasons though by now it's clear that the real identity of 'A' is nowhere close to being revealed.
  • Jul 05, 2014
    My least favorite season, it had a lot of pointless episodes
  • Jun 07, 2014
    this season gives you some answers
  • Jun 01, 2014
    I'm gonna be completely honest and say that this season was very middling it felt a bit unfocused and didn't find its head in the right spot the beginning was off to a very good start don't get me wrong, they jumped right back into the suspense after the shocking Season 2 finale but as it went on I didn't care in the slightest what was going on I kept thinking to myself, guys can we please direct our attention back to A and what the girls have to face next in order to save themselves please?! then somewhere in the middle the creators found their way back and I'm glad they did because I was droning out of it fast it didn't feel as assured as it normally did for some reason and I wasn't being pulled in as much as I wanted to be at that point sadly though the same thing happened again near the end only they took a slight detour which really distracted from everything else that was going on I just wanted it to wrap up as quickly as possible there's a semblance of new characters joining the ranks, A is getting deeper and closer to the girls more than ever before, and even newer emotional complications begin to threaten everything they care about more clues and mysteries are being presented as to what A's next move is and what the actual story is behind Alison's murder there were some things I liked and some things I really did not like this time around I thought the first two seasons were better at giving me jolts, shocks, surprises, clever twists, smart writing, and engaging plot threads not a single person can be trusted in Rosewood which makes me ponder who A really is this season should have been better and I really hope that Season 4 can make up for the jumbled mix of results luckily this show hasn't lost me yet because it still retains interesting characters and an always-engaging mystery surrounding 1 person who's case has still yet to be solved can anyone be trusted? is no secret safe? how far are these girls willing to go to find the truth? will the unthinkable happen? how much more of the A-team is there? more questions and answers lie head for Aria, Spencer, Hannah and Emily and A still holds all the cards
