Spontaneous Saturday: Netflix Has Cost Me Sleep

There are times I spend so much time looking for something to watch on Netflix that I could of watched an entire movie by time I've browsed through almost every section. It's hard for me to really choose something to watch, sometimes I literally close my eyes and just pick something. That's what I did with this show...

and now it's costing me sleep because I am obsessed and completely hooked. I'll be watching this into the wee hours of the morning or any free moment I have. I can't stop! I'm up to season 2 episode 15 now in a little over 2 weeks. Yeah, that's a lot of TV. 

I've seen previews for this show and blew it off. Sure, it's over-dramatic, obviously very fictionalized, cliche, and meant for teenage girls, but I love it! 

Soon, I'll be left with this problem...

This will be disappointing, I really love watching episodes one after the other on Netflix. All the cliffhangers get picked up in minutes rather than a whole week...exactly first world problem. I'll live though!

Anyone else like this show? NO SPOILERS! What other shows can you recommend that are similar to this? 


  1. I LOVE this show! I'm so glad you found it! It really is a great show, and never seems to disappoint.

  2. I've been watching it since the beginning! I've also read 8 of the books :) I hope in and out every week that the endgame of the book doesn't happen! hahah

    As for shows like it...hmmm You might try The Lying Game. It's also on ABCFamily, and is based on books written by the same author as PLL. It's decent. Lately, I've been terribly into Teen Wolf. It's not at all like the movie hahah (I watch more than my fair share of "teen shows" and I'm 35, so...)

  3. i totally did the same thing when i caught on to six feet under quite a few years ago. i crammed like 4 seasons into a month, i watched it every waking moment. and then i came to a point where i had to wait for the new episodes to start up and it was soooo hard.

  4. I LOVE this show! I have been watching it since the beginning and I'm still obsessed! Haha I agree with destany, The Lying Game is def great too! Another one I'm obsessed with is "Revenge"! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

  5. I haven't watched PLL yet, but the exact same thing happened with me & the show "Breaking Bad". I watched all 4 seasons (46 episodes) in under 3 weeks. I was watching late at night since it's not exactly for kids and I had to wait for my little guys to go to sleep. We caught up just in time for season 5 to start, and then I find out that they are splitting up the season and not showing the second half of it until next year. SO, not only do I have to wait a week for each episode, soon they are going on a break and it will be months!!! Waaaah ;-) Maybe I can start PLL then ;)

  6. The same thing happened to me! I randomly picked it on Netflix, and got hooked. It's like Deparate Housewives: The Highschool Years.

  7. Also, they have pretty great nails - lots of dark colors on short nails.

  8. I love it too!!
    I'm addicted!
    I just watched revenge and I thought it's really nice too!

  9. Ohhh I hate that.... I catch up with a show in like 2 weeks and then have to wait for the season to start or for the next new episode... hate it!

    I watched one episode of this show and I was really confused because it was in the middle of the current season, so I'm thinking I will have to hijack my husband's Netflix account and catch up! Gotta love a little bit of bad tv, right? :-)

  10. It takes me forever to find something to watch as well. I'll have to check PLL out. I've heard so many people talk about.

    I feel the same when I watch Netflix, usually takes me forever to find a show/movie. I recently started watching Dawson's Creek.

    I love this show and I watch it every week. Sometimes it's sort of outlandish, but it just keeps the viewers watching!

  12. I LOVE this show! I won't tell you any spoilers :)
