Please cancel this god forsaken show. I have seen better acting in a play performed by homeless, talentless children!

Please Renew! Of course I want to go ahead and find out who all the A’s are and just as important what are all the reasons behind everyone’s motives………… I want to learn ALL the secrets and details before it gets cancelled. Esp since, from what I’ve heard, the books and the show aren’t similar at all. So I can’t even read the books to find out. Please let us get some closure to the ongoing mysteries…! For that person who thinks PLL is bad and Secret Life is better is I don’t know what to say… because Secret Life is so dang cheesy…I mean really… It’s a struggle to get through sometimes. Now FYI, I have watched Secret Life since day one and never missed a show, however, as time has passed the cheesier it’s become. The only reason I’ve stuck with it is to see how each relationship turns out-get closure. I’m glad it’s finally ending. Acting not so great PLL definatly put their hearts into each character.

This list is missing an episode from the summer season. Episode 3×12 was the midseason finale, 3×13 was the Halloween special, and 3×14 was the midseason premier.

As we already know their is a season 4. I must admit i just tuned into this show 4 days ago. I watched all of season 1 & 2 on netflix and downloads all 13 episodes of season 3 and watched them in 4 days. I accidently watched the show on 01/08/13 and liked it and i remembered seeing the show on netflix. I am up to date on this show and i must say it’s good.

I have one question i hope someone can answer. Where did i see the departure of Ezra and Aria already. I remember seeing them on Ezra couch talking about his son. Ezra finds out about his mother part in him being left out of his son’s life. Even thou he loves Aria he needs to be a father to his son. He Leaves Aria in his apartment and walks out to meet his son. Did I see this some where because this is going to happen before the end of this season. Any takes on this , please let me know.

Pretty Little Liars has already been renewed for a 4th season, an it will carry on to be one of the best shows on air. The actors and actresses put their all into the show, and clearly enjoy playing the roles. Who ever says that this show was ‘badly written’ or has ‘bad acting’ needs to actually watch and decipher what’s going on. Yes, it may be a teenage show, thus most of the viewers and fan base is made up of teenage girls – but this doesn’t stop others liking it also. My mother loves this show just about as much as I do, and we are both avid watchers from the UK. I have met so many people through this fan base from all around the world, which just goes to show that this show is loved everywhere, just as much as the books that the show is based on, are too. Why would this show gain an 8/10 rating on IMDb if it were bad? Why would Pretty Little Liars and its cast have won various awards if this show had ‘bad actors and bad writing?’ Take a moment to think about all of these things before you insult this show. By insulting Pretty Little Liars, you are insulting a lot of people around the world.

This show is just terrible. I can’t wait til it gets canceled. It probably won’t anytime soon cause it’s got a huge fan base (for some reason). But the plot, writing, acting, everything is just TERRIBLE.

Secret Life was WAY better than this crap in the early years. Now it’s gotten bad. But it had way more potential.

i highly doubt that pll will be cancelled. it’s abc family’s best show. everyone i know is watching it. if secret life and switched at birth is still going on and no one watches those shows, then pll will be fine.

Only reason I want them cancelled is because I want to find out who the other “A”s are.

Are the ratings for Pretty Little Liars really good for ABC Family, or are the ratings for Melissa and Joey really bad?
