What do a night in a tent and a night in a hotel room have in common?
For Spencer Hastings and Hanna Marin the answer is getting pregnant.
Flash forward 16 years and Chloe Cavanaugh and Madison Rivers are the best of friends.
Chloe is a brilliant artist and her mother Spencer is her best friend (second to Madison of course). Her father is a famous photographer that’s never in town for more than a week or two at a time.
Madison is living the dream, she’s a chic fashionista just like her mom Hanna. Her parents are as in love as that fateful night in the tent 16 years ago. She is the spoiled eldest of soon to be five children.
What happens when both girls worlds are turned upside down and everything changes?

He’s covered in travel grime, pretty sure he still smells like the camel he was riding two days ago.
There’s a bar right next to his gate. Bottles of beer glisten in the light streaming in from the high windows of the terminal. Ice cold. No one knows him here. No one knows why he shouldn’t.
That’s when the sign catches his eye. “Welcome to Casablanca!”
Answers given consistently throughout 7B, not just thrown at us in the finale.
If ‘ThatNight‘ is important (which I think it is), show us the events of that night chronologically for e.g. who got buried first in the gazebo.
DO NOT REPEAT THE MISTAKES OF 6X10 when filming 7X20. That episode was poorly written and executed. Charlotte’s motivation for torturing the liars felt incredibly weak. The entire structure of the episode was disappointing as well as inconsistencies in Charlotte’s story.
Uber A’s motivation needs to be strong– they need to have a reason that is more than just seeking revenge for Charlotte’s murder. I want the girls to be guilty of having done something unforgivable to A.D for them to be targeted in such a brutal way. (I know Marlene has said A.D began their game after Charlotte’s death which in my opinion has to be a lie to mislead us. A.D had to have been playing the game with Charlotte before she got caught which is why they were able to take over easily after she was murdered).
Don’t leave reveals until the last 5 minutes of an episode – they should be consistent throughout the episode.
Don’t overhype the finale/premiere/any episode to get higher ratings –it has the opposite effect and leaves fans disappointed for e.g. The twitter hashtag #BigAreveal used to promote 5B finale was extremely misleading and left fans feeling cheated out on after the finale aired.
Make 7B climatic, emotional, deadly, answer-packed – 7A was good and it paralleled earlier seasons however considering this is the last season it lacked climax and answers we should have got. Too much of it was filled with romance filler storylines (haleb, spaleb drama, ezria engagement) most fans have no interest in. These storylines are enjoyable and fun to watch until they overtake the mystery of the show. We want answers and plot progression. 7B should have less romance, more mystery and plot development – most fans watch the show for the mystery not the ships.
More A.D texts/messages and scenes!!!
PLL weddingshouldn’t take up most of the finale – this is the last episode and we want everything that has happened in the last 7 seasons to make sense.
Don’t spoil the events of the finale or any episode by using ‘spoilery’ clips in promos/sneak peeks or in the synopsis. Some great moments in 6x20 were ruined through sneak peeks such as the scene with Mary Drake dressed as mummified Jessica to scare Alison. If a character is to be murdered in an episode don’t tell us this in advance. We prefer to not know and be genuinely shocked than to expect a death.
Reveal the identity of A.D/Uber A before the series finale and DON’T advertise when that will be for higher ratings. We want to be surprised.
While I have no further desire to pick on last weekend’s Jem and the Holograms, it is striking to compare the two female-centric genre offerings as a template of what to do and what not to do. Aside from being one of those “spend the whole movie to get to the starting gate” origin story” prequels, Jem failed because the (male) filmmakers involved didn’t trust the core concept of a spectacular female-centric musical action show and instead turned it into something stereotypically “girly.” The film, which was a mediocre version of what it was trying to be, pleased absolutely no one by alienating the fans and patronizing the would-be teen girl audience who prefers the likes of Pitch Perfect or Pretty Little Liars.
Supergirl, which debuted to rave reviews and kick-ass ratings on Tuesday night, made no such mistake. And that, at the moment, is its biggest win. It is as action-packed as Arrow, as sci-fi crazy as early episodes of The Flash, and as explosive as any male-centric action show. And in terms of the action, it doesn’t hold back in its violence. Okay, so the show isn’t yet violent in the “How do Gotham City and/or Star City have any cops left?” fashion, but the action is every bit as punishing as any male-centric superhero show. Not only does Kara kick super heroic butt, but she also gets smacked down, by a Kryptonian MRA troll no-less, when dramatically appropriate in a way that offers her no quarter in regards to gender. And its heroine required no approval from a dead dad or a living boyfriend to become the superheroine she wanted to be.
What ‘Supergirl’ Could Have Taught ‘Jem And The Holograms’
So the PLL ratings have continued to go down so much that they fell below 2 million viewers which is the first time ever. I’m not saying it’s because of what they’ve done to Ezria/Ezra, but well, it’s just “conveniently” during the time they ruined them.
