    Yay for PLL

  • Nikki

    Twisted sucks.. they are trying like hell to pretend its not but it is.

  • platypus Perry

    Lol Nikki. Anyway I’m currently watching PLL on Netflix and on Season 3 episode one and much to,my surprise I like this guilty pleasure.

  • Liya

    Twisted is the best, great writings, directing and amazing actors. It doesn’t get better. I am hooked for real.

  • ForReal

    Twisted is so dull and contrived. People are only watching it because it’s been shoved down our throats and they make it start RIGHT after PLL ends. I’d much rather watch The Lying Game and so would everyone else I know. Too bad ABC Family decided to start this stupid show instead.

  • Jea

    I couldn’t disagree more with those of you hatin’ on Twisted. I watch both shows, but I find that I actually look forward to Twisted more than PLL these days. It’s a great show.

  • Alex

    I haved love PLL since it first aired and i love it soo much :D i also watch twisted and at first i was unsure about it but i was hooked as soon as the 2nd episode finished! I love both of these shows, im so glad to hear this news!

  • Krissy

    I completely agree with you ForReal! I would much rather watch The Lying Game! Too bad stupid ABC Family cancelled the series! I don’t understand why- The Lying Game was way more exciting and “twisted” than Twisted is. The Lying Game kept you guessing and wonder who did what or whose who! I’m so upset they cancelled it because they had an extra slot- due to the end of Secret Life- to keep it alive! I wouldn’t be surprised of Twisted was cancelled after this first season. Sorry Twisted lovers- it’s boring- we know nothing- it’s not exciting! I also truly love PLL because again- like The Lying Game- it keeps you guessing and on your toes never knowing what’s going to happen!

  • Jasmine

    Why so much hate for Twisted. I don’t even watch Pretty little liar, but you won’t see me bash the show. Haters! I looovvvvve twisted. The writing is not only superb, with character driven storylines, but the acting is the best I’ve seen in quite some time.

    I am so glad twisted is holding up and do believe rating will grow with time.
