Tele-Tuesday: Topnotch Teen TV, the Mysteries

With the upcoming release of my debut YA mystery novel, Football Sweetheart, I thought it would be fun to use last week’s and this week’s Tele-Tuesday posts to showcase a few of my favorite YA and teen television series on TV today.  I may be past my teen years, but these programs have what it takes to keep this thirty-something tuning in week after week.

Last week, we discussed the supernatural—The Vampire Diaries and Teen Wolf.  Personally, I don’t think we’ll ever tire of vampires and werewolves and we’ll always have a place for them on the television screen.  But what do these shows have besides the supernatural that keeps us coming back for more?  The pretty people…

This week, we have ABC Family’s mysteries.   I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again—these stories are both compelling and are filled with twists and turns week in and week out.   Pretty Little Liars is perhaps one of the best whodunits on television today, and The Lying Game keeps us guessing as to what Sutton is really trying to accomplish with her games.

And like the supernatural, these shows have plenty of pretty people, but we also have the fashion…

Pretty Little Liars

First, we have the earrings…

Aria always wears the cutest earrings…

See? Another pair…

Next, we have the hats…

Spencer can wear any kind of hat…

Hanna with her cute new haircut and red hat…

Emily… another cute hat!

And what about the clothes?

 

Then there’s the guys…

Who wouldn’t want a teacher that looks like Ezra?

Even Caleb sports an awesome hat…

And Toby doesn’t need fashion… he just needs to stick with his construction job.  Plus, he usually only wears a t-shirt anyway.

The Lying Game

We all know Sutton/Emma has the closet most girls dream about…

Ah, to dream…

And she puts together the cutest outfits…

But her friends are no slouches either…

Now, the boys are a different story.  They may be lacking in fashion sense, but I’ll take a guy who looks like this any day!

Ethan in his usual plaid button down…

Justin all sweaty after his morning run in a classic USMC tee…

And then there’s Thayer in his V-neck t-shirt…

So, what do you think?

Which show has the better fashion?

Do you watch Pretty Little Liars or The Lying Game?  What keeps you coming back for more?  The story?  The people?  The fashion?  Which show on television do you think has the best fashion?  I’d love to hear from you!

And overall, which is your favorite Topnotch Teen TV program?

While Football Sweetheart doesn’t have any of the supernatural, it does have the mystery.  Watch for it coming soon…

    I *love* hats! Those knitted hats are adorable. I need one. Or five. 😛

    • As do I, Jen! My mom and I recently went to a golfing store with my brother and nephews, and while I support their golf, I wasn’t interested in what they were looking at. So what did Mom and I do? We went and tried on all the fun hats. I still don’t know why I didn’t buy one… as much as I love them, I don’t have many in the closet.

      Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

  2. Lots of pretty people. But I’ve never seen these shows. I can’t wait for Football Sweetheart to come out. I love a good mystery.

  3. Both sound awesome!!

  4. I want that closet. Hmmm, I haven’t seen either show, but those actors and actresses sure are cute.

  5. You can’t force me to pick between Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars!!!
