Pretty Little Liars the Complete First Season Now Available on DVD–Why is This Show So Popular You Ask?


While holiday shopping, I saw that Pretty Little Liars The Complete First Season was finally available on DVD.  If you have not seen this show on ABC family, then you are missing out.  You are probably thinking, why is a grown adult watching a teen television show?  Come on, you can’t tell me you have a show or two you watch, that has become your guilty pleasure.  Well, this show has become mine, after flipping through the channels one night trying to find something to watch. I had seen promotional trailers for this show, but never thought it would interest me, as it was about teens.  But, I was wrong.  And, after seeing the Pretty Little Liars Season 1 on DVD, I began thinking about the show, and why I liked it so much. 

So, what is this show about your ask. Here is a brief synopsis:


When their best friend Alison mysteriously vanishes, four girls believe their secrets are safe forever. But when they begin to receive threatening messages from someone named "A," the truth may be only one text away. Filled with mystery, scandal, intrigue and nail-biting suspense, Pretty Little Liars is based on the best-selling book series for young adults from Alloy. Set one year after the disappearance of Alison, the manipulative and vindictive queen bee, the one-hour drama revolves around four 16-year-old girlfriends --Aria, Hanna, Spencer and Emily -- who have lost touch with one another until each begins to receive mysterious messages suggesting that Alison is watching them and knows their most private details they are desperate to keep hidden. Suddenly, living in their picturesque suburban community is far from perfect as secrets, lies and betrayals threaten everything they hold dear. Even after Alison's body is discovered, the messages don't stop.

It was hard for me to choose a favorite episode, but the one that stands out the most from Season 1 has to been Episode 11 – Moments Later.  In this episode, moments after Hanna is hit by a car, the girls' world is turned upside down. "A" is no longer content playing a game of cat and mouse - things have taken a far more ominous turn and now more than ever the four Pretty Little Liars have to turn to each other for support. With Hanna in the hospital and armed with the information of who "A" is, the girls are backtracking to figure out how they got to this point. How could this person know everything and want to use it against them? Meanwhile, each girl has to also deal with a secret that is either found out, confessed or confronted - proving that secrets still abound in Rosewood, PA.

This episode was jam packed with suspense and drama.  One minute everything is fine in Rosewood, PA, and then the next, the girls’ lives are turned upside and they scatter to deal with the consequences of their past actions, but trying to protect themselves and each other from having their secrets exposed.  Ahh, the drama of a great teen show, that has me addicted, and looking forward the Season 2 premiere on Jan. 2nd.
