Even though it was terribly executed at times, with ridiculous plot holes, new characters coming out of nowhere, things thrown at us just to fill in the gaps of badly crafted stories and a whole lot of frustration at the end for not getting what I was expecting after 7 years of a whole intense relationship, PLL still made my adolescence what it was and I love these girls. It's bad but I love it. Sue me.
What an unsteady ride. The first seasons were undeniably the best. Throughout, what it executed well, was splendid (thematics, some storylines, the references, etc.), but what it did bad, was horrendous. In the final seasons, the writers lost control of the story and forced events that made no sense or didn't seem reasonable. A candid example of how somethings, when in excess, can become untamed on its on.
