Pretty Little Liars & Ravenswood. Boom.

Surprise!! I couldn't fall asleep last night.
Obvious reasons.

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 dramas
You'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 delusionally thinking that maybe the next episode good 'ol I. Marlene King will give us some damn answers.

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..

I digress..
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.


  1. Soooo glad that you feel that way about PLL, because I totally do too. I've gotten to the point that I don't even have interest in watching but I need to know whats going on.

    And Ravenswood. Not even interested. Not one bit.

  2. Oh my gosh - Criminal Minds was SOOOO good last night! Hotch got to see his dead wife...among other things! :)

  3. I really think that this will be the last season of PLL :( I'm HOPING everything will start to be answered soooooonnnn

  4. hahah I love PLL and was shocked at Ali coming back for real! I think Ali s hiding and scared to death of red coat (I have NO IDEA who red coat is). And I am so sad about Ezra I hope it's a trick because I can't even take it!

    As for Ravenswood, I think ABC Fam is trying to go with something a little more spooky/supernatural. I think it will be pretty good but only time will tell! And yup, I'm 25 and watch these high school drama shows religiously too.. oops!! haha

  5. criminal minds such a love/hate! it gives me nightmares every time!

  6. I feel the same way about PLL. We need some answers to keep us going not just question after question. Where are all those hot guys going to? I thought the pilot for Ravenswood was ok. I will give it another episode or two to see if I am going to stick with it or not.

  7. I didn't even watch Ravenswood so I have no thoughts on it. And was it just me or did the Halloween special for PLL really have no point other than to introduce Ravenswood? That's what I was thinking the entire time I was watching it until the end when there was that whole thing with Ali and the Liars.


I love you people! Let's be friends.
