Pretty Little Liars: Pretty Good

ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars debuted last night.  After the cancellation of 10 things I hate about you… I had to tune in to the new show.

The show is about 5 best friends, and one of them goes “missing”. The other 4 know what has happened to the missing girl but have made a pact to keep it a secret.  Seems like they stole the storyline from the movie Sorority Row but what is different is we, the audience, does not yet know what happened to the missing girl. The girls start getting mysterious messages, all signed “A”, assuming it is from the missing girl, who is named Alison.

The cast is packed full of former daytime soap stars, including Ashley Benson (ex-Abby, Days), Nia Peeples (ex-Karen, Y&R), and Tammin Sursok (ex-Colleen, Y&R) as well as Laura Leighton (Sydney, Melrose Place) and Bryce Johnson (Josh, Popular)

With lines like “I’m still here bitches, and I know everything” who wouldn’t want to watch?

One Life To Live: Dani is a Damsel In Distress

What is a girl to do? Her father, who she has not yet developed a relationship with, is in big trouble. Her sister, Starr, is a wreck because of their father and because of her boyfriend, Cole. Her mother just got some horrible news, and she can’t make up her mind about Matthew and the new guy. What’s going to happen when Todd is found guilty of killing Marty’s baby? Whats going to happen when Tea dies from her brain tumor? Whats going to happen Starr gets arrested for trying to tear Hannah apart? Whats going to happen when Matthew and new guy get in a fight because of Dani?

I don’t know if any of those things are going to happen, but one thing is for sure, Dani is going to freak out about whatever happens.  There is a good possibility that Tea may die from her tumor as it is rumored that Florencia Lozano is leaving the show. So what does that mean for Dani and Todd? Will she finally accept him as her father and build a relationship with him? Will her mother’s death send her straight into Matthew’s arms? And, if Tea dies, will Blair become her psuedo mother? There are a lot of possibilities! We’ll just have to wait and see!

Thanks for reading and remember, you only have One Life To Live!

General Hospital: Its “LuDa” crous!

This week is a big week for Lulu and Dante, or LuDa as I like to call them, on General Hospital. This is the week that LuDa fans have been waiting for, the couple will finally “make love” for the first time!  I’m excited, because seriously, its about time. But there are some conversations that need to be had between these two.

After being called a ‘selfish bitch’ by her beloved cousin Carly, Lulu is probably feeling like she is the size of a bug that has been squashed and is stuck to the bottom of Carly’s heel. So this makes her very vulnerable. Of course, Dante is struggling with his recent decision to throw his little brother Michael under the bus, making him as vulnerable and needy as ever. It makes perfect sense that the two would throw themselves at each other to ease the pain.

I, however, forsee more pain in their future. Michael may end up in prison causing Dante to feel horrible, and Lulu is keeping some things from Dante that may make him feel worse. She needs to tell him about her abortion as it has already been touched upon. This could be a deal breaker for Dante, OR, it could make him want to be closer to her.

She may also want to tell him about her own self-defense/murder cover up rediculousness. Killing Logan sent her over the edge and Dante needs to be in the know for future reference, because I’m sure she’ll be sent over the edge again at some point.

It seems ludicrous to me that these two things haven’t been discussed between a couple that is about to have sex for the first time. When in a relationship, don’t you share these types of things? But wait, this is the land of Soaps!

Be sure to tune in to General Hospital weekdays on ABC to find out what happens to LuDa!
