Pretty Little Liars Recap: Do You Want To Be Happy Or Do You Want To Be Right?

Thank you, Audrey. This was helpful.

Thank you, Audrey. This was helpful.

Hello, people. As you hopefully read yesterday, I’ve employed a new Pretty Little Liars guru to help us parse through all this crazy. Unfortunately, after writing her inaugural post, Audrey went and got in a car crash. She’s ok (well, concussed), but I’m pinch hitting for this, the first of many, PLL recaps. Audrey will (hopefully) be chiming in via text, but due to like, damaged brain waves and painkillers, I’m not sure how much coherency we’ll get out of her. That said, we all know this show doesn’t make sense anyway. Here we go!

So when we left off last week, Aria was having some serious PTSD from (maybe) killing Shawna, who is (maybe, but probably not actually) A. Spencer is casually having sex with Toby in her bed in her parents’ house with the door open. Ali is visiting her OWN grave. Mona is rocking a killer navy blue sweater dress. And Emily and Hanna are following Jason DiLaurentis around town like it’s totally normal for two girls in leather pants to be standing on street corners in the dark.

Totally normal.

PLL Questions: An Inaugural Missive

Editor’s Note: Hi, guys! Allow me to introduce my friend Audrey Marks. She’s one of the greatest minds this generation has seen, and an avid fan of ABCFamily’s Pretty Little Liars. She has generated this entire post based on years of research, and, as you can see from the photo below, is basically a member of the cast. Enjoy her reflections and make her feel at home.

I got invested in 2011. Right from the beginning I was hooked. I was living in Pittsburgh. I was between jobs. I was looking for something meaningful to fill my time. Naturally I turned to Pretty Little Liars (a show about high school girls who never ask adults for help) to fill the void.

For five seasons and like three years I’ve been devoted to this ABC Family gem (and recruiting people to obsess with me along the way). It’s been a topic on the blog and countless gchats between Kelly Carroll and I. And now, I share my insights with you, dear reader.

Dancing with the Stars: All Stars Week Three!


So the challenge posed by the DWTS judges for this week was this: “show us something we’ve never seen before.” I have a problem with this for several reasons. 1) Len Goodman doesn’t like anything new or non-traditional. 2) This nice family show can’t do anything outside of the box! It’s not what their viewers want! 3) Bristol Palin.

Nevertheless, here we are at Week Three, which is Double Elimination week! The celebrities are in charge of costumes, choreography, music, everything. No matter what happens, it will be some show!
