With the table firmly set for any number of possibilities, it should be interesting to see how the show proceeds from here.

Jan 7, 2015 | Full Review…

We're not exactly cliffhanger-y. Maybe that's okay. We have plenty of time.

Jun 12, 2014 | Full Review…

Tuesday night's Pretty Little Liars premiere, airing on ABC Family in the States and M3 here in Canada, was a whole other level of insanity.

Jun 12, 2014 | Full Review…

After months of waiting, the Pretty Little Liars return was a quite the letdown, wasn't it?

Jun 11, 2014 | Full Review…

If you thought the season four finale of Pretty Little Liars a few months ago had a lot going on, tonight's season premiere put it to shame.

    the cliffhanger at the end of Season 4 was a hell of a nail-biter; Shana revealed her true intentions and met a grisly fate now everyone is dealing with the aftermath of it all including Alison whom has officially made her return but all is not well as Mona and a new group of A followers band together in order to take her down once and for all considering the damage she left behind Aria, Spencer, Emily, and Hannah are glad Alison is back and sets everything straight about her disappearance but nothing is at it seems when new suspects and new clues begin popping up questioning her story slowly but surely the girls begin to lose Alison's trust and constantly switching alliances with Mona Alison then loses her mother, her father tries to console her but it's hard for her to get back into the life she left behind while also reconnecting with her brother Spencer's life spins more out of control with Toby being a cop struggling to choose between his duties to serve the law or go beyond it, she and her sister seem to be getting along but lies and deceit begin piling up pulling them away again plus she's having trouble choosing a stable relationship Aria while worrying about Ezra getting better from a close encounter helps her mother get over a heartbreak, she considers moving on with her life applying to college and getting away from the A drama but at the expense of her relationship with Ezra as well Emily wants to believe in Alison again but the discoveries made has her break all ties next to two new romances blossoming but has Emily constantly heartbroken Hannah goes through a major change of her own becoming her own person, Caleb also comes back but it's anything but perfect anymore, and she wants to make a life of her own away from Rosewood but obstacles like affording college and being framed for murder keep her down this season loses a bit of the spark from before but the writers do attempt to right the wrongs done to these girls and everything they have been through since Alison has been out of the picture we adjust like her to get back to her home, we want to move on, we want the girls to actually have normal lives but at this point A is still out there wanting to get back at these girls another death of a major character turns things around and the finale rounds up the Liars putting them in an ultimate test of psychological torture/mind games A has conjured up, the Liars face their worst fears like never before the show's 5th season goes deeper into the mindset of what these girls have faced, done, suffered, and what they wish to do in the future not a great season but still gripping

    A Great show! Defiantly lives up to the first 4 seasons! It is very intense.
  • Jul 31, 2015
    Season 5 had so many filler episodes that the writers forgot about Shana. Nevertheless the last episodes might have been the best ones of the entire series

    The beginning of the season was quite boring but picked up speed towards the end. The much-aniticipated 'A' reveal was disappointing though.

    Four girls, or “besties” hang out in a converted barn. The lights cut out, they all get scared, walk towards the door and …D’oh! It was their fifth bestie pulling a prank. This bestie is already on her phone, texting someone, because she’s Popular Bestie! She makes a super snarky comment, alludes to a boy, then they all fall asleep. One wakes up to find two are missing. One Bestie comes back, declaring the Queen Bestie is nowhere to be found, but she says… dramatically… “I think I heard her scream.” The group of insufferably attractive and well off “teenagers” (played by adults) struggle to deal with the disappearance of Queen Bestie. They all have teenage girl secrets that consist almost entirely of who is and isn’t kissing who. Someone is pestering them, threatening to reveal their secrets, signing off with Queen Bestie’s initials. Who is dead. I guess if I was 15 I would relate to them and their “terrible” situations. But I’m not and I hate them all. Full review available on ponderflix.

    I just love this show so much. I don't think any other show frustrates me in a good way as much as PLL. I'm constantly trying to put together clues to figure out who A is. I love the mystery, drama, suspense, and the witty comebacks. This season is my favorite and hopefully we will finally get some answers by the finale.
