'Pretty Little Liars' S4, E3 Recap: [SPOILER] The Return

6/26/2013 8:25am EDT
Just when I had started wondering about the characters that disappeared, this episode surprised me by bringing some of Rosewood’s finest back.

First, Aria’s mom, Ella (Holly Marie Combs), is the center of attention in the episode opener. Still seeing coffee shop owner, Zach, Ella is asked to escape to Vienna with Zach for “less than a year.” She contemplates if leaving Aria would be a good reason. Aria, who finds herself jealous of her mom’s love life, sees this as a good opportunity for her mom to continue to be happy and gives Ella her blessing to go.

My biggest shocker for a return was...

Pretty Little Liars
The much anticipated season 4 of Pretty Little Liars premiered last night and the season premiere episode left us with answers to all of our questions, with the usual add on of new questions.

Let’s rewind to the end of season 3. Spencer tricked Toby into meeting up with her, where they both decided to reunite in efforts to catch Red Coat in action. Spencer pretended to be part of the “A” team so that she could plan a fake lodge party in hopes that Mona would come and bring along “A” with her.  Hanna, Aria and Emily were all in on her plan, after they confronted Spencer about her recent bre...

Ryan Merriman And Kristen McMullen
Actor Ryan Merriman proposed to longtime girlfriend Kristen McMullen over New Year's Eve and managed to keep the big news a secret until now.

During the premiere of Jackie Robinson biopic 42 in Hollywood on Tuesday night, the Pretty Little Liars star confirmed the news and explained how the couple's "hectic" engagement night in his native New Zealand turned out perfect.

"There is this awesome thing called Sky City, with a Stratosphere tower, and they light off about $300,000 worth of fireworks at midnight," he tells Us Weekly magazine. "As soon as I gave her a kiss and proposed, the firew...

Recap: ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Episode 18: ‘Dead to Me’

2/7/2013 9:35am EST
This episode was a massive bag of filler but even the Pretty Little Liars need a day off right?  Most of the girls are busy making their way through their own dramas all while seemingly ignoring a fractured Spencer.

Case in point:  While chilling at the Brew, Hanna and Emily are consoling Aria, who is in Ezra withdrawal.  They are all confused and they turn to their leader (Spencer) for guidance and she’s blank.  No emotion.  No proof she was even listening to the conversation.  She just makes up an excuse and heads up to the coffee house register.

Jason walks in and informs the Liars tha...

'Pretty Little Liars' Recap: 'Out of the Frying Pan, Into the Inferno'

1/30/2013 11:17am EST
Pretty Little Liars
A heartbroken Spencer makes for excellent television, this much we already knew.  How great it would be to watch however …I think we undersold it.  She goes through so many emotions in this episode – every scene she isn’t in just doesn’t seem to measure up.

Stage 1:  Denial and Isolation

We start with Spencer having a sex dream with Toby that goes awry.  Articles of clothes are being removed and then the next thing you know, Toby is in full A garb and strangling her.  That’s enough to dry out any wet dream.  And our heroine (somehow that’s what she seems like) awakens to figure out that r...

Recap: 'Pretty Little Liars': Episode 16: 'Misery Loves Company'

1/23/2013 12:29pm EST
Pretty Little Liars
A lot happened in this episode.  Blondes showed their crazy.  Brunettes had breakdowns.  And a shirtless man appeared fresh out the shower.   There is so much to cover, let’s jump right in.

The girls are at the Montgomery house tending to a fever-ish Aria, who in her stupor she insists that they leave her all alone at home with a band of crazy people around.  She’ll manage on her own.  This clearly will not end well.

And to prove it, Toby and Mona are in their new hide-out, which looks exactly like the last one, cooking up a dastardly plan that will instill fear into the hearts of the gir...

Interview: 'Love Me' Lead Lindsey Shaw Talks Dark Romance, Being Goofy and Looking For Uncomfortable

1/17/2013 11:00am EST
Love Me
When it comes to up and coming female talent to watch for nobody comes to mind faster then charismatic actress Lindsey Shaw.  A notable part of such past TV shows as "Aliens in America" and ABC Family’s "10 Things I Hate About You," Shaw is currently very well known for playing the complex character of Paige McCullers in the hit drama "Pretty Little Liars."  But for us it’s been the amazing film work that has starting showing even more savory sides of Shaw - her captivating turn as the aggressive yet sweet Eliana Wynter in 2011’s "The Howling Reborn" is without question truly entrancing wor...

Recap: 'Pretty Little Liars' Episode 15: 'Mona-Mania!'

1/16/2013 11:04am EST
Seems these days Bryon is always apologizing for something.  And things are no different in “Mona-Mania.”  The daddy with the leastest (we’re just going to pretend Hanna’s dad doesn’t exist) apologizes to Aria for accusing her and her friends of arson and attempted murder but she shrugs it off.  Nothing is forgiven.

While they are both bemoaning his failure as a father, Em, Hanna and Spence are back at the high school basement (a major location for this half of the season apparently).  Hanna is overwhelmed at the thought of having to worry about Aria’s daddy issues on top of her own. Spenc...

The Freaks Come Out At Night

It’s the wee hours of the night in Rosewood, PA and the freaks are out and about wreaking havoc.  Mona’s creeping into Hanna’s house to beg her former best friend for help with her biggest obstacle to date:  walking back into high school post-scandal.  Because she’s better now (at being evil) and the other kids will be mean.  And Toby is trying to run over some black hooded-kid on a skateboard, who refuses to accept that the sidewalk is his friend as opposed to the middle of the street where all cars fit. (That kid is revealed later, hang tight!)

Attention TV geeks: the Paley Center for Media has something you're going to want to see.

[WARNING: The following story reveals the identity of Pretty Little Liars' A. Read at your own risk].

The mystery of A's identity in ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars has finally been revealed and ultimately mirrored the books on which the series is based.

In the Season 2 finale, Spencer, Hanna, Aria and Emily grew closer to uncovering A by discovering a seedy motel that Alison, their murdered friend, had visited. It was the group's brainiac Spencer who realized that A wasn't following Alison; instead, Alison was spying on A, whose lair was in Room 2 of the Lost Woods Resort. Spencer took ...

It was a huge night for Katy Perry at the People's Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday - even though the pop star's marriage break-up prevented her from attending.

The I Kissed a Girl star pulled out of the event earlier this week via a tweet but it was still very much her night as she picked up five awards, including one for her guest spot on TV comedy How I Met Your Mother.

Watercooler: Is The Nine Lives of Chloe King the Cat's Meow?

Hello, kitty!

ABC Family let its cat-powered new teen drama out of the bag last night and from the fun, fast-paced pilot, we're inclined to say that Pretty Little Liars (which kicked off its second season in killer style an hour earlier) has quite the fitting companion piece. It's not PLL-level addictive yet, but it's far from a runt.

Starring the immensely charismatic Skyler Samuels, Nine Lives of Chloe King tells the tail, er, tale of a quirky teen who...

Summer 2011 TV Highlights

True Blood
As much as you should be going to the beach, catching a hot concert or spending time with friends at outdoor barbeques this summer, there is also a lot going on indoors too. We’re talking about what’s going on inside on the television. Summer television shows aren’t always about the addicting and sometimes laughable reality programs since stations like TNT and USA have stepped up their game with shows like The Closer and Burn Notice. As much as we were anticipating the return of Mad Men this summer only to be disappointed by the news that the premiere is delayed until 2012, we found a few m...

Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale graces the cover of the June/July issue of Seventeen magazine, which hits newsstands on May 24th.

Lucy also stars in the latest Scream sequel, and discussed her experience on the set, along with her love of horror films (she counts Paranormal Activity and The Exorcist among her favorites). But despite all the blood and gore on the set of Scream 4 and in the movies she likes, it's something else that really scares her.

"I hate flying," She says. "I don’t like planes. I get really anxious. That’s the main thing for me. I just hate flying."

Lucy also expla...
