REVIEW: Pretty Little Liars “Surface Tension”

July 27th, 2011

PRETTY-LITTLE-LIARS-Never-Letting-Go-Season-2-Episode-7-5

Last night’s episode of Pretty Little Liars “Surface Tension” may have given us a clue into who murdered Ali. Or it may be a dead end. There was also a lot of making out, a potential injury and a dinner party that can only be described as awkward. And that’s a vast understatement. We also sort of find out what’s going on with Mike Montgomery, although there is definitely more to it than we know. And did I mention Aria, Ezra, Jason and the Montgomery’s in one room? Yeah, that happened.

REVIEW: Pretty Little Liars “Never Letting Go”

PRETTY-LITTLE-LIARS-Never-Letting-Go-Season-2-Episode-6-7

Last night’s Pretty Little Liars “Never Letting Go” centered around relationships — parental relationships, the girls’ relationships and significant others/possible significant others. Jason DiLaurentis also takes on an even bigger (sadly non-shirtless) role. I thought the episode set up some very interesting things for the future. Are the girls able to let go of Ali? Clearly, not quite yet.

REVIEW: Pretty Little Liars “The Devil You Know”

July 13th, 2011

PRETTY-LITTLE-LIARS-The-Devil-You-Know-Season-2-Episode-5

Last night’s episode of Pretty Little Liars, cleverly titled “The Devil You Know,” focused a lot on A. After this episode, there are many more questions than answers, and some people emerged as a bit shady and mysterious. Aria seems to have a slightly wandering eye, her brother is into some bad stuff (not drugs though, as I suspected) and Spencer’s mom FINALLY realizes what a total awful parent she’s been all this time. It was an intense episode. I really enjoyed the way the last scene played out (and how creepy it was!) and it was another episode that was beautifully shot with a scene reminiscent of the opening credits. And one of my favorite couples reunited!

ADVANCE REVIEW: The Closer Season 7 Premiere “Unknown Trouble”

July 11th, 2011

The Closer is back for its 7th and final season tonight! While I am thrilled it’s back, I am legitimately sad there won’t be anymore Brenda Leigh Johnson after this season. Brenda Leigh (played by the amazing Kyra Sedgwick) and her Major Crimes crew: Provenza, Flynn, Gabriel, and (former) Captain Pope are hilarious, heartwarming, and one of the best ensembles in drama today. And that’s a big statement coming from me. There are few shows that handle the “case-of-the-week” formula in a way that doesn’t get stale, while keeping us interested in the characters, and The Closer does a wonderful job of just that.

REVIEW: Pretty Little Liars “Blind Dates”

July 6th, 2011

PRETTY-LITTLE-LIARS-Blind-Dates-Season-2-Episode-4-7

Last night’s episode of Pretty Little Liars titled “Blind Dates,” had some huge, crazy intense moments, a new love interest (maybe) for Aria, and well, someone dies. Spoiler alert! But in Rosewood, we never know if someone is truly dead. We assume Alison is because they found her remains but then who is torturing the girls? Of course, A strikes again in a big way in “Blind Dates,” while one girl has a major breakthrough. I loved the intensity level of this episode. It was drama in its finest form. I also always love when there’s a creepy woods scene and there was a great one in last night’s episode.

INTERVIEW: Ian Harding (Ezra) from Pretty Little Liars

July 5th, 2011

Pretty Little Liars has really been heating up in the first few episodes of the second season. The girls have started living up to their title, but who could blame them given the situation they are in? One of my favorite relationships and story lines since episode one has been the Aria and Ezra relationship. Once quite taboo and essentially illegal, (that I was rooting for — sue me, they are adorable!), is no longer, because Ezra isn’t Aria’s teacher anymore. I recently had the chance to catch up with Ian Harding, who plays Ezra, and we talked about what’s to come for the big couple, the epic kiss from a couple weeks ago and that awful, pesky A and how he/she/them will be meddling in the “Ezria” relationship.
