It feels weirdly good to be back in this world.

The pilot may not be perfect, but it definitely is pretty, and I'd be lying a little if it didn't hold promise. More of this, please.

"Someone is about to snap...and kill." From those words alone, you know Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists is going to be a wild effing ride.

Enter the Professor, just made a turn that portends great things in the show's future... if it gets to keep telling its story.

It's hard to embrace the new, especially when you've been invested in certain characters for so long, but the new additions to the Pretty Little Liars world fit the mold the original series created perfectly.

Glossy, soapy, sexy revamp will thrill fans of original.

As was the case with its parent series, nothing is quite what it seems on The Perfectionists.

Mar 21, 2019 | Full Review…

The Perfectionists is much darker than its predecessor, and that's clear from the start. The episode literally opens in the dark.

Mar 21, 2019 | Full Review…

Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists is doing exactly what the Pretty Little Liars part of the full title suggests it will, and it's those same comfortable, artistically sharp, and spooky beats that will keep fans of the old tuning in for the new.

Mar 20, 2019 | Rating: 7.6/10 | Full Review…

PLL: The Perfectionists is more in line with the actual spirit of the original series... which will at least make it worth checking out.

    it's been 2 years since the curtains closed on the residents of Rosewood on ‘Pretty Little Liars' now Marlene King introduces her spin-off series called 'Perfectionists' new faces are introduced as well as some familiar ones the story takes place at Beacon Heights; Ali is the new TA and Mona comes back from France after defeating Mary Drake and Spencer's twin sister Ali and Emily have twin babies yet they're in a bit of a rut as far as their happyness is concerned, Mona arrives to pursue a career in game design it's a new town full of new liars and new secrets the new faces here come in the form of Sofia Carson as Ava Jalali, Eli Brown as Dylan Walker, Sydney Park as Caitlin Lewis, and Chris Mason as Nolan Hotchkiss; the group here is a much more diverse and ethnic circle of friends although they each have their own baggage in one shape or form Nolan is sociopath who blackmails people while cheating on Caitlin, Ava's family has a messy reputation with her father on the run from embezzlement, Dylan has a boyfriend but is going to college soon, and Caitlin's mom's infidelity could potentially ruin her presidential campaign unfortunately things go south when a murder occurs, Nolan Hotchkiss is killed and it sends everyone spiraling so now it's up to Ali and Mona to crack down on the mystery even if it means resorting to their old methods of lying, manipulating, and bouncing back to mean-girl status Former FBI agent Dana Booker is also on the case as the schools new head of security, bad enough she's also on Ava's case for her father's crimes Ali, Mona, Ava, Caitlin, and Dylan must all work together in order to survive this deadly game of cat-and-mouse the finale leads to a big face-off with the Perfectionists and Nolan's killer Is murder justified if it means ending someone's hostility?, we spend our whole lives trying to be perfect and to snuff out the ugly, out of the dirt blooms a flower, hiding in the shadows makes you an easy target, in the public eye everyone's watching, what is it to truly be perfect?, politics isn't just about policy it's about getting to know the people, sometimes the truth is more telling than a lie, it's funny how we become the thing we hate the most sometimes, technology keeps us safe but it makes us vulnerable a very very good first season even if it is short I'm very glad this follow-up didnt dismantle what made the previous show so addictive

    The show has a great mystery and is very interesting. It is not my favorite new show of 2019 but it is a great time filler. The acting from Sasha Pieterse, Janel Parrish, Sofia Carson, Eli Brown, and Sydney Park are great. Overall it is a pretty good show.

    It is a really good show with lots of drama. I don't usually watch spinoffs because it ruins everything but this is amazing and I cant wait until Wednesday(when the next episode comes out)

    I was expecting to see a tv series with casual everyday cruelty and petty bickering in its backbone. Instead I found a well produced production with an engaging mystery and rather fun over the top dramatic scares/surprises. The cello music is beautiful, the characters have far more depth than I have come to expect on mystery tv, and while manipulation is a central theme, cruelty is not. At least, it isn't a core trait of the protagonists. It's certainly possible any one of them could have killed him.... but that is another point entirely. Personally a show that glorifies bullies turns my stomach... but this show, while having bullies, does not glorify the behavior. Rather it weaves a web around those in a position of popularity power and questions the hows and whys of how they got there, probing for their weaknesses and humanity. It is a story where you know for sure some people are not to be trusted. A story where even those you think you can trust are not solid bets. But you suspect that even if one of the protagonists is the murderer, they may be trustworthy in their own way. At the very least you can trust that it will be an interesting, and dramatic, journey.

    I never watched the original Pretty Little Liars but this has piqued my interest to start watching the original. The first few episodes are rough but what starting show doesn't have those rough episodes. I like the story it keeps me interested and you don't need to watch the original to watch this which is nice.

    I really like the plot. This looks like it will be a lot better that the original PLL. I canâ??t wait to see Alison and Mona in action
