Desperate Housewives meets Gossip Girl on the corner of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. This doesn't surprise me, seeing as the show is on ABC Family...And it makes sense that ABC would take one of their most popular shows for a female demographic and fuse it together with a popular teen show from a competing network.
The idea of never knowing the truth and getting caught in dirty secrets is timeless and ageless and I really think the whole point of the psycho-stalker ghost is to illustrate how each character is extremely paranoid about keeping up false appearances. Dare I say, this dead friend of theirs...Allison...is merely a figment of their imagination to confront the larger issues of their social life. Who knows, though? PRETTY LITTLE LIARS is definitely a must see!
