Here we are once again – for the last time until April – to review the first half of season 7 of Pretty Little Liars based on our handy point system. Season 7 picks up right we left off: Hanna’s trap has backfired and she’s now captured by Team “A.D.”, aka Alison’s creepy new husband Eliott and her even creepier Aunt, “Mary Drake“, so let’s get to it:
The PLL marathon continues, and with it the completely arbitrary point system which, at this point, centers mostly around random details rather than the actual plot, because this thing is so convoluted that I can’t even.
Laid out chronologically and sorted by episode name & number, here are my random thoughts on the first part of season 6 of Pretty Little Liars:
My completely arbitrary point system is back for the Season 5 round-up of the craziness in the quaint little town of Rosewood, so let’s get into this (in more or less chronological order):
In my never-ending quest to find new (at least to me), interesting and fun TV material, I recently came to a conundrum: I wanted something light and frivolous, yet complex enough that it would keep me guessing. Nothing too heavy or horrific, but peppered with mystery and clues that begged to be deciphered. Something over-the-top and unrealistic, with beautiful people and quirky outfits and snappy dialogue that I could watch while, say, engaging in house chores, but substantial enough to not just use as background noise. A show counting plenty of past seasons to provide entertainment for a few weeks without becoming tedious.
I’m not sure exactly what I was looking for, but I definitely found just the thing in the most unlikely candidate: Pretty Little Liars.
I know, you’re shaking your head and going tsk tsk and judging me as you’re reading this. But hear me out.
