Pretty Little Liars

In case you were wondering, I actually have been watching each of the seven episodes of ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars to air since the first time I blogged about the show.

My official results following these 344 minutes of TV research are that – no: Pretty Little Liars does not suck, despite my initial fears and misgivings.

Now a recap of the shows main characters:

Spencer – I actually find the character a bit boring. She’s too perfect, too motivated … wound too tight. Plus, the storyline with her sister’s fiance ended after episode four, and her romance with the country club boy hasn’t been developed enough yet for me to care.

But actress Troian Bellisario is the real-life half sister of Sean Murray, who plays Agent Timothy McGee on NCIS. And anybody related to McGeek gets rad cool points in my book.

Emily – I started out really liking her, but Emily’s character has just disolved into blah over the stretch of the season. Yes, she kissed a girl and she liked it. Wow, so edgy. Then why is Emily’s storyline falling so flat?

I actually liked her better with Toby Cavanaugh – the quiet boy with a dark past nobody seemed to know much about. They went to homecoming together. It was sweet.

Until we find out that (SPOILER ALERT) he’s a stepsister-bedding crazy person who totaled his motorcycle and is now apparently on the run. Sad. I actually liked him.

AriaLucy Hale‘s character was originally my favorite on the show. Her relationship with puppy-faced English teacher Mr. Fitz actually managed to be really sweet, until they hung out at a bar together and his old college roommate reminded him that making googily eyes at a 16-year-old girl is probably not the smartest decision.

What I’m Watching: NCIS

NCIS. Tuesdays at 8 pm on CBS.


NCIS follows a team of Navy Criminal Investigative Service agents as they inspect crime scenes and solve murder cases.

Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) may seem rough around the edges, but has a caring heart and a bit of a messiah complex that means he will do almost anything to help someone in need.

Gibbs leads a team of three other NCIS agents. Timothy McGee (Sean Murray) is a computer whiz and lovably dorky. Anthony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) spouts trivia from classic films and is full of cocky self-confidence. Ziva David (Cote de Pablo) is a former Mossad agent from Israel with excellent spy skills, but a general lack of understanding when it comes to American culture.

Tony and Ziva bicker constantly, but their chemistry is one of my favorite things about this show.

Also in NCIS headquarters are Ducky (David McCallum), the primly-accented medical examiner with a funny habit of talking to corpses while he examines them, and Abby (Pauley Perrette), the kind-hearted  but overly- Read the rest of this entry »
