So after I finished game 1 of the World Series (i don't want to talk about it) I thought it'd be a good idea to clean up my DVR a bit. I knew there was no way in hell I'd be watching American Horror Story like I usually do on Wednesday nights, because.. No. Criminal Minds was also out of the running. Again, I hope for obvious reasons. So again.. No.
I went with safe.
I chose Pretty Little Liars and Ravenswood.
STOP READING NOW IF YOU DON'T WANT TO READ SPOILERS! or if you just hate teen dramasYou've been warned. Sorry that I'm not sorry.
Let's start with this.. Does anyone have any idea what is actually going on in Pretty Little Liars anymore?!
I feel like I need a cheat sheet.
Who is who? And who's good? Who's bad? Ali's alive? Is she the redcoat? Or who is redcoat? Or is Ali redcoat sometimes and sometimes it's someone else? What is the deal with Mona? Where did she go? Toby? Jason? Every hot guy who's ever been on the show?! Also, still confused about the whole Jenna thing. And don't even get me started on the whole Erza thing. (although, i love that plot twist! probably my favorite one on the show! i know i'm alone in this)
I mean we're in Season 4.. FOUR! Not only do I feel like we have no answers to any questions, I feel like the actual questions just keep piling on. And now I'm just.. confused.
To be perfectly honest, it's just kind of exhausting.
There are so many characters and so many story lines and so many plot twists to keep track of.
On one hand I'm annoyed with the show so much that I want to quit watching it.
BUT on the other hand, I'm addicted and I keep
|sure, Marlene, sure..|
Speaking of PLL, let's talk about it's new spin-off Ravenswood.
So the whole idea of this show had me confused from the minute they announced it.
They kept saying it was going to be totally different from PLL, but Caleb was going to be on it?
Also, they've showed previews for the 2nd half of PLL Season 4 and Caleb is in it.. So is he just going to bounce between shows all the time? That seems really hard to keep track of.. Especially since I'm still waiting on my PLL Cheat Sheet..
So Ravenswood.. What?!
I truly believe that Pilot episodes are tricky, especially when it's a spin-off of another popular tv show and especially when a well liked character (Caleb) from Show A (Pretty Little Liars) transfers to Show B (Ravenswood).
Another example of this would be The Originals, a spin-off of The Vampire Diaries. I wasn't totally head over heels in love with the pilot, but I've loved every single episode since.
Because of this, I'm definitely planning on giving Ravenswood another chance to wow me.
I guess I don't really have anything else to say about Ravenswood because I'm not totally sure I even know what the show is about yet.. Which seems odd, right?
So there's that.
A whole post about 2 teen shows on ABC Family that I DVR.
Should I be embarrassed? Because I'm not.
Haters gonna hate.
