CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- ABC Family has had its share of interesting shows over the years. In the past few, though, its ratings have gone through the roof with the network's crazy, intense, dramatic shows.
It all started with the mystery "Pretty Little Liars," about a group of girls who have been best friends forever. Their relationship was held together by another friend, Alison, who disappeared one night while the girls were camping. Her body was found later.
After Alison's death, the girls split up. However, they reunited at her funeral -- and reunited with her, or so it seemed. They start receiving scary text messages from a mystery person named "A," which makes them wonder whether Alison is actually dead.
The texts contain secrets from their past and things occurring in their lives now. The girls have their suspicions about who "A" is, but then that person is gone, and they're still receiving messages from "A."
Throughout the show's two seasons, crazy things have happened. By the end of this one, some questions will be answered, but they could drive the friendship apart.
Paired with "Pretty Little Liars," and sometimes referred to as its sister show, is "The Lying Game," which is in its first season. It's about twin sisters, Sutton Mercer and Emma Becker, who reunite after being separated since birth.
Sutton lives a fabulous rich life while Emma is in foster care with a mean foster mother and horrible foster brother. The girls plan to reunite after Sutton's family vacation, but Emma can't wait. She's gotten in big trouble with the law and has to leave the foster home or be sent to jail.
