Well this post is slightly ironic as I haven't been keeping up with Pretty Little Liars this season. But then again it proves my point that Pretty Little Liars is a very gripping show, but you can easily skip episodes and not be confused as long as you get a quick gist from someone in the know.
I started to watch PLL when it first aired in the summer of 9th(?) grade. I would religiously watch the show with my neighbor each week and became obsessed. So obsessed that I started to read the books. Then I got more involved with the books and it got way too ahead in the show, so then I kept comparing the show to the books. Another season later and I gave up on thinking about little things in the books and started to watch the show for the show. I believe I skipped like the 3rd season or the 4th...but somewhere in that time me and my friends all became obsessed with it again and made parties out of it each week. Even though I missed a season, I was fine enough to know the majority of what was going on. It helps that each episode starts with a little flashback of what events will be talked about in that episode. Then after the disappointing 5th season finale, I sort of gave up on the show, but I also sort of want to rewatch it one day.
Basically if you live under a rock and don't know at least something about Pretty Little Liars, it's about 4 best friends who recently had one of their best friends go missing. The night of her disappearance had many secrets and on the day of her funeral, the 4 girls get a mysterious text from an anonymous person, named A. A knows all about the girls and manipulates them to do what A wants and A holds all the liars secrets against them. Love is thrown into the mix and it's all very drama filled. There are some episodes where things are a little duller, hence why I could lose interest easily if it weren't for my friends, but it would be a great show to binge watch!
