My Weekly Obsession | Pretty Little Liars

I've decided to start a new, sort of, 'series' on my blog. I don't like using the word 'series' as such because I'm not too sure how long this will last, however, I like the idea for now and it should carry on for a little bit.

The new series shall be called 'My Weekly Obsession' and it will include a new blog post every Sunday, telling you all about something I have been loving the past week. That something may be a celebrity, a website, a food, an item of clothing, a TV show, ANYTHING GOES! I hope you like this idea but be sure to let me know what you think! :)

This first 'My Weekly Obsession' post is all about the TV series 'Pretty Little Liars.'

Pretty Little Liars is really popular an American series which has been around for a few years, however, I only started watching it 2 weeks ago! That's the thing with me, when something is really really popular, I either start loving it way before everyone else even knows it exists OR start loving it way after and when nobody is as interested any more. There is no inbetween haha!
There are currently 5 seasons of PLL, however, the show is still running and there is a new episode every Tuesday. I began watching it last Sunday and, this is pretty embarrassing to be honest because, as of today, I am completely caught up and waiting for new episodes to come out each week. If the fact that I have watched 5 years worth of episodes in 2 weeks doesn't prove to you that I have absolutely no social life whatsoever, I don't know what will!
Of course, I don't want to give too much away about the storyline for anybody who hasn't seen the show or isn't caught up, but I will give you a brief summary. The show is based around a group of girls, Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily who are all friends. Their other friend Alison, went missing a year ago and has not been seen since. The girls then start receiving messages from a mysterious 'A' in the form of texts, emails, notes and so on. The girls, and the audience, have no clue who this 'A' is and the show is pretty much them trying to unmask them. But, of course, there is SO MUCH more that happens, including relationships, family conflicts, arrests, breakdowns and a whole load of lies.

I have become obsessed with Pretty Little Liars, I think because the audience have no idea who 'A' is either, which makes it so much more entertaining. You think its one character one day and then, the next day, you change your mind. I do, however, have a lot of theories and could go on forever but I think this blog post is already long enough! I think it is so awesome how you can literally say that ANY character is 'A' and justify it with evidence and not many TV shows are like that! Also, I really like the way the show is written. Although it was originally based on a series of books, many more things happen in the TV series and I think the story is so clever, Nothing happens in the show without a good reason. Nobody says anything without a good reason. And nobody does anything without a good reason. Everything that happens now somehow relates to something that happened years ago and, although parts may seem really confusing at times, the pieces all fall into place eventually.
I also love the characters and, after watching Episode 1, the first thing I did was follow them all on Twitter & Instagram, naturally! I seem to have become obsessed with, not only their characters' lives, but their personal lives too!

On the subject of characters, I think my favourite Liar is Aria, however, I really really love Spencer and her sense of style because its so preppy and collegiate! I think my friends would probably say I am the Spencer of the group! Which PLL character are you most like??
Finally, lets talk OTPs because there's a lot of relationships in the show and who doesn't love a good bit of shipping?
My heart will always have a soft spot for Ezria, I think because they were the first proper couple we saw, they've been there since The Pilot and I love Lucy Hale & Ian Harding. However, I also adore Spoby and also Haleb, I mean, they're just GOALS, right!? Who's your PLL OTP??

That is going to be it for this blog post but I enjoyed writing this SO MUCH! I have become addicted to Pretty Little Liars and I honestly don't know what I'm going to do now only being able to watch 1 episode a week! ....well, saying that, I have actually already started watching it again right from the start haha!
Remember to let me know if you like the idea of this series and I'm sorry if this blog post is really rambly but PLL JUST GIVES ME SO MANY EMOTIONS!!!
