    As a teenager, I find it catchy and interesting. I think the fact that it has a mix of genres makes it different. Sure, it can be a little cliche and generally predictable but the subplots are basically unique. Let`s take the relationships as an example. I mean, most High school drama series nowadays make us believe that our relationships in high school are the "real" ones. It may not be for an adult crowd but a lot of us teenagers enjoy watching this show. Full Review »

    A story about teenage girls, pretty looking, popular and naughty. Sorry, haven't we seen something similar already on the market? No, we have not, even if it looks like we have. This series is something really special. It is about the thrust, friendship and of course, keeping secrets. Simple, isn't it. I would say so, but when you start watching this series you realise that it isn't. Life of a teenager, even if he/she looks handsome/pretty can be complicated and hard to live. That kind of life are tasting also four teenage girls who have lost a good friend last summer. They didn't really lost her, she disappeared and now they have finally found her body, she is dead. Is she, why are those four friends still getting text messages from her, signed -A ? Looks scary and complicated? I can only tell you that it will get worse. Other facts and things will you have to discover yourself by watching it. You won't be sorry for it. -A Full Review »

    This show only serves to reinforce the most negative stereotypes about teenage girls in America. They have absolutely no intentions of thinking about others before they act, and they admonish the use of (pardon my french) general **** to serve their own purposes. That said, the story is somewhat interesting (when I wasn't asleep, my girlfriend kept trying to explain it to me), but the characters fall short of being interesting or even remotely salvageable in character. If there is any kind of retribution and rebirth type of narrative in the coming seasons, I imagine it will fall short of being even slightly sincere. In brief, there are no likable characters, the narrative is spotty and confusing, however, the show serves its purpose in that it only relates any kind of interesting story or characterization to girls between the ages of 14 and 18.
