Pretty Little Liars: The A-Team is Back!

The A-team — Spencer, Aria, Hannah and Emily — is back in the third season premiere of ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars, which airs tonight at 8/7 central. Let’s not forget ABC Family is currently airing a marathon of season two episodes.

Let’s get down to business now — spoiler alert! In the season two finale, Mona, Hannah’s best friend, was revealed as the infamous “-A,” as altercations between Mona and Spencer occurred en route to a secluded hotel in connection with Allison’s disappearance. Mona is surely headed for jail but, the question remains, was Mona acting alone? If not, then who is she controlling? And, how will Mona control them in her orange jumpsuit?

According to TV Line, (Pretty Little Liars Boss Talks Season 3 Secrets — Ezra’s got ‘Em — and the Return of Maya?!?) Oliver Goldstick, the show’s executive producer, said the upcoming episodes will delve into “finding out who was the Black Swan, and also who is part of the ‘A’ syndicate… Is ‘A’ actually more than one person? And is Mona in fact controlling these people from behind ‘bars,’ or is Garrett the one doing that?”

While these are all important questions, what about Maya? Is she really dead? Nothing is as it appears in this show, so I’m going to take a wild guess and say no. Goldstick said, “You have not seen the last of Maya,” and Megan Masters from TV Line is happily reporting that it will not be in the form of a flashback.

So, where does tonight’s premiere start?

“It’s five months later, and there’s still a lot to recover from for these girls,” Goldstick said, according to TV Line. “The only thing that’s any comfort for them at all is the fact that Garrett is behind bars.”

“The web is more t’A’ngled than they ever imagined,” so take a look at the promo:

Can’t wait for the premiere? Me either.

Thank god for summer television premieres — Happy Pretty Little Liars premiere watching, A-team!

Not caught up? Then you’re in luck, seasons one and two are available on DVD.


Revenge: My Guilty Pleasure

ABC’s breakout show “Revenge” is my latest guilty pleasure and, thankfully, it has been renewed for season two, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“Revenge,” starring former “Brothers & Sisters” star Emily VanCamp, is what I classify as “The O.C.” meets the Upper-East-Siders of “Gossip Girl” meets the suspense and mystery of “Pretty Little Liars.” If you haven’t started watching, then you should take advantage of Hulu Plus’ one-week free offer. Trust me, you’ll be able to finish the entire first season in one week.

Emily Thorne, played by VanCamp, moves into a Hamptons beach house as she  attempts to unravel the oh-so-seemingly-perfect lives of the people who betrayed her father.

Conrad and Victoria Grayson, played by Henry Czerny and Madeleine Stowe, testified against Thorne’s father who was wrongfully convicted of crimes he didn’t commit. As a result, Thorne is working through her roadmap for revenge, which was left in a series of diaries by her father that explains the degrees of involvement played by each person.

If I haven’t already convinced you to watch “Revenge,” then take a peak at this promo for the pilot episode:

Trust me, you won’t be disappointed. And what’s  more, the first season just wrapped — giving you the entire summer to catch up and be ready for season two when it premieres in the fall.
