You Take the Good, You Take the Lies: Is <i>Pretty Little Liars</i> the New <i>Facts of Life</i>?

Charlotte Rae, Mrs. Edna Garrett herself, made a surprise cameo last week on ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars, which makes perfect sense when you think about it. After all, don't Eastland's goody two shows and Rosewood's little vixens have a lot of common? Sure, they come from different economic backgrounds, but both groups of girls know what it's like to feel that the world never seems to be living up to your dreams. And despite their scheming, the Liars do have good intentions while Edna's gang have juicy little secrets of their own. In fact, the closer we looked, the more we realized how similar the characters were.

Imagine if the girls from Pretty Little Liars lived in a small southern town, returned to it as adults, oh, and never blinded anyone.

TWoP 10: Characters We're Most Happy to Be Free Of

We've started celebrating Independence Day a few days early, and we're especially happy because the past TV season allowed us to finally get away from some truly terrible characters. Thank goodness for deaths and cancellations. We'll light some sprinklers in these people's honor.

TWoP 10: Summer Shows We're Most Excited For

We even had a tough time narrowing the list of shows we're anxiously awaiting down to these ten.

TwoP 10: Characters We Want Back From the Dead

To be clear, this list has nothing to do with characters we miss. When we write "Want Back From the Dead," we mean "Want Back For Full-Out Zombie Vengeance." Our choices have little to do with how much we liked (or loathed) these now-dead characters, and everything to do with how awesome it would be to see them return to their shows and eat the human flesh of their former cast mates during a monstrous apocalypse. Spoilers abound, so beware!
