January will see the return of all my fave shows first up are ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars and The Lying Game on 2nd Jan. Both are adaptations of the two novel series' of the same name by Sara Shepard. Both shows started out pretty badly, the acting, the writing it was all stiff, it made me cringe but eventually they grew on me and now i'm addicted.
PLL is midway through its second season and is like a teenage desperate housewives, which makes it a lot more relatable for viewers my age. The four girls are banded together by secrets revolving around their deceased friend. The girls are convinced they're friend was murdered and when they start receiving threats, they make it their mission to find out who is behind it all. The show is currently airing on MTV in the U.K. What I love about the wardrobe on this show is the individual style each liar has to reflect their individual personalities.
The Lying Game premiered in August 2011 and is based on a set of twins separated as toddlers. The twins find each other and swap lives in order to find out the truth about their birth parents. The main plot is reminiscent of Richy Rich/ The Prince and the Pauper with a million and one sub-plots but its good family drama. The show is set to air on 5* in the U.K in February 2012. The wardrobe on this show is like a toned down version of Gossip girl.
