Pretty Little Liars > Pretty Little Liars Review: This Summer's Guilty Pleasure > Comments Page 2
Spencer looks too old. The only character that looks the same from books and movies is Aria, except for the yak bag and handmade bras
i was SUPER excited for this premiere...but i think they kind of ruined it with finishing THE WHOLE first book in the first episode. THAT was kind of nuts, but i get why they had to do it so not too many people would get confused and change the channel. if they continue at a slower pace i think Pretty Little Liars could be the IT show of the summer! keep it up! ( p.s. i read the books... and to those who read it, they might think it's going too fast which means nothing to build up to...)
i smell GOSSIP GIRL only dark side! lol but its fine!!
Well they should have changed that thing with Hannah's mom and the police officer, they don't have to stick to the books, there's place for improvement too....
As a reader of the books, I thought it was okay. Kind of boring, kind of rushed, but I think that was necessary to get things going. I think next episode will be better. The one thing I thought was really strange was how rushed Emily and Maya's relationship was - they met each other eight hours ago and all of a sudden Emily's all "Oh Maya I was so worried about you!"? Oh, and your criticism of the scene with Hanna's mom and the police officer - that scene was actually very accurate compared to the books, so that didn't bother me.
oh wow, the first time i heard they are going to make a series out of this. i am so watching it. I thought the episode was so rush since everything is just so crunched up. I know what happens in the story (since I read all the books, turnover ending! LOL) but i'm intruge seeing this seeing it as a series. these girls have alot of problems for sure, but not the bitchy ones you see on gossip girl. I always thought American life was always llike that.
The jenna thing kinda got out of hand. They explained why she was blind in the first place in the book. hopefully it gets resolve.
Is this season only 10 episode. So they making 10 episodes for each book?
And they can leave out that guy saying "I saw two blonde girls in the woods" and that's it. It's not a big deal.
And maybe Emily's mom will not be racist on the show but rather uptight, close minded and homophobic. It's not like her being racist is a major plot
Megan the song was not specifically made for the show. What do you expect? And it's just a song... which I think fits the show... although it was already used in GG so it's not original
I was very dissapointed with last night episode, and that was just in the first two minutes. Not only did they totally screw up a quote in the theme song: "two can keep a secret if one of the is dead" when the real quote is three can keep a secret if two of them are dead" you know this if you at least read the first book. But like Taylor said Spencer is supposed to be blonde, and emily is supposed to be a redhead and not at least half african american i mean cmon her mom's COmpletly racist twoards african americans!
You know what? I've never read the books and never really even heard of them before the show. But I just wanted to give the show a chance, because there are not many good shows on during the summer. I found myself very entertained, and interested to see what will happen next. I wasn't expecting much acting wise, and they so didn't deliver. Most of them can not act! But the stories and drama are going to keep me watching. Love the theme song too! It's awesome! 4/5 from me.
great episode...can't wait for the whole series and how true they stay to the books! i love the books sooo much! im on "wicked"
fun fact::: ian harding (ezra fitz) is one year younger than lucy hale (aria)! lol he's supposed to be the teacher and be like 5 years older! and the girl who plays spencer was born in 86!!! so olld for a 16 year old. like 11 years differnce. 16 year olds should have been born in 1993!!!!! LOL i no they use older actors like in gossip girl, but c'mon alison whoes playing 15 ..her real age is 13! she was born in 1996! its never the same age, either older or younger! ahhhh lol
cnt wait till next week!!!
lol, I'm so glad I don't know the book cause I think comparing it to them would totally ruin it for me. But the way it is, I just loooove the show and c/w for next week - an amazing way to get through the long summer of no series
I wasn't impressed. There was no suspense when it came to the romantic relationships at all. Ezra fell madly in love with Aria enough to risk his job for reasons they didn't feel were necessary to reveal to the viewers. Emily fell for Maya 12 seconds after they met... come on. Spencer's sister's boyfriend fell for Spencer the moment they met... Could we have gotten a little development?
All of this overshadowed the mystery for me.
Well geez Taylor, way to give a spoiler with no warning. And if judging from that quote alone, that doesn't really matter...he could just say "a blonde and a brunette" instead
I never read the books, so im wondering if im missing out on something here, but from the pilot I didn't find the series to be that good.
There were just too many moments where I had to suspend my disbelief, such as the almost pedophile-like school teacher. Aria obviously looked underage, but somehow the teacher didn't suspect anything and she was allowed to sit at the bar? Or the fact that he is still attempting to pursue a relationship with a girl he just met that would ruin his career. Or the fact that the cops would really go through all that trouble to apprehend a girl who may have taken a pair of sunglasses by going through the security cameras and then what, just start asking around if anyone knows her? (not sure if they actually do that). I also would want to assume that these girls would want to catch their friend's killer, instead of being busy hiding their secrets, which so far seem pretty minor in comparsion - maybe it'll become bigger secrets later on.
The acting is
the first episod was amazing. yea they tried to rush it, but they wanted to get more info in so that we wouldnt get cofused and stop watching it. id rather them have put a lot of info than just little bits of everyones "secret". i mean you have to remember that there are 4 girls, meaning there are gonna be 4 different stories to follow. i knew they rushed and crammed as much to this one episode as they could but they did it well. it wasnt just a big blob of information. either way im still gonna watch all the episodes. i just set my tv to record them lol. i dont want to miss out and im surious to see what "the jenna thing" is. i cant wait to find out.
Mona is described of having blonde hair too and that is important later in the series, too.
i feel a little disappointed...
the thing that bothers me the most was that they didn't even show evidence of hanna's bullimia, which was a BIG deal in the books. also in the books she stole jewelry from tiffany's, not a pair of sunglasses. i just kept comparing everything to the books. the end was kinda corny too, with them reading the text outloud. i will be watching next week, hopefully the next episode will be better.
I couldn't resist googling about the Jenna thing and I don't think it's very interesting. Like only Allison would care about that coming out.
And I hope they change the "killer"
I think the books are way better, but I'll watch it anyway.
I loved when Hanna's mom said: "I buy you everything you need to be popular."
The teacher if super cute. I think Aria and Him look so cute. She is 16 in a few years she will legal and no one would care. Hope they stick around together.
good ep, might stick arounf for the show even though it was a little rushed, new favorite character:Lucy, am i the only one rooting for her and her teacher to fall in love? LOL
i liked the pilot it didnt stray to far from the first book, it did seem a little rushed but i think that was only so that they could fit the first book into one episode, the rest of the series is going to be books 2, 3, and 4. so i am excited to see if they stay as close to the books as they did for the pilot.
I think that the episode was well done, except for the pysical appearance of the PLLs. The fact that Ali, Spencer, and Melissa are all blondes sets up for a huge bombshell later on in the novel series. Emily is supposed to be a fair skinned redhead, whose mother is a bit of a closet racist, and yet Emily looks like she could be half black herself. Hanna is the one who is supposed to be the bruntettem but I wasn't too disappointed with her character. I was most impressed with Aria. I think that they captured who she as really well. Ian thomas was also supposed to have dirty blonde hair. I enjoyed watching it last night, but I am just curious as to how they will fix all these things because in one of the novels, Ian Thomas says the following to Spencer, "I saw two blondes in the woods that night." This is what causes Spencer to think about who could've killed Ali, including her sister, melissa, and herself. Just sayin' :D
