'Pretty Little Liars: The Complete Sixth Season'
(Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Tyler Blackburn, Lucy Hale, Ian Harding, et al / 5-Disc DVD / NR / 2016 / Warner Bros.)
Overview: Get ready for more twists and thrills as season six of 'Pretty Little Liars' begins moments after the season five finale. A finale in which Aria, Emily, Hanna, Spencer and Mona are trapped outside the "dollhouse" where their tormentor, Charles, has been keeping them - with nowhere to run.
DVD Verdict: Well, let's start at the very beginning, because that's exactly when I first got hooked on this ingenious, creative, compelling show. Indeed, after just the very first episode, when four girls - who have recently grown apart after the event of their best friend's death - find out that their deceased friend is still sending them texts, signed notably with the single-letter name of "A", they come together to try to stop her from following through with threats to spill their darkest secrets.
Upon first thought, as a new fan to the show back then, you probably asked yourself how big these secrets could possibly be for four high school girls, but these girl's aren't just typical teenagers; their secrets run deeper than stealing a tube of lip gloss from the local drug store! Indeed, 'Pretty Little Liars' is one of those shows that is not fantastic, but drags you in and won't let you go until you find out what's next!
Here in the epic sixth Season box-set of 'Pretty Little Liars' we kick off in the very first episode, quite literally moments (nay, seconds) into the incredible season five finale where Aria, Emily, Hanna, Spencer and Mona are trapped outside the "dollhouse" where their tormentor, Charles, has been keeping them. With nowhere to run and angered by their attempted escape, Charles' games take a more demented and darker turn.
As we quickly see, as the girls struggle to survive, Ezra, Caleb and Toby (recurring guest star Keegan Allen) continue the fight to find the girls with or without Rosewood Police Department's help. Charles' story begins to come together through this sixth season, that was bound to happen, and with the Liars (SPOILER ALERT!) eventually solving the puzzle and unmasking Charles, they finally put an end to the "A" game.
Containing the entire 21 episodes from the sixth season, I won't give spoilers throughout this review, just in case, but I will give you (in no particular order) my top 5 episodes watched: In episode 5 ("She's No Angel"), Mona returns to Rosewood in a very fragile state as she must answer to the police for faking her death. Matters only get worse when she is confronted by Lesli's sister about Lesli's inadvertent involvement in Mona's plot. Hanna is determined to help Mona out, not only to reassure her she is safe from Alison but also to try and repair Mona's friendship with Lesli. Emily tries to help Sara with her troubled home life by encouraging her to explore the possibility of emancipation. Spencer, on the other hand, finds help from someone from her past.
In episode 11 ("Of Late I Think of Rosewood"), the ladies return to Rosewood after five years when they are summoned by a court to attend a hearing about A. In episode 15 ("Do Not Disturb"), convinced that Sara Harvey is behind the new threats, the Liars work together to get answers. In order to prove Sara Harvey is behind the threats, Team Sparia reunites to find evidence of Sara's involvement before they go to the cops. Caleb puts together a plan with Hanna to fight back against the new stalker by using the security footage tapes. Meanwhile, Aria gets unexpected news from her family, and Ali comforts Emily in her time of need.
In episode 19 ("Did You Miss Me?"), the Liars plan a counterattack after Alison has a close call; Ali has an unexpected visitor. Finally, and where as much as episode 20 is rather good too ("Hush... Hush, Sweet Liars" - where Hanna is offered up as bait as the Liars attempt to learn Uber Bad's true identity),the final (episode 21) is a solid gold rocker, of course!
In closing, and as stated before, once you start watching 'Pretty Little Liars,' you seriously can't stop! There's always little twists in each episode, and its definitely not gonna be what you're expecting. Overall, its a must watch and there aren't that many good things on TV right now, so definitely watch this. For, in Rosewood, nothing is as it seems!
[FYI: Almost every cast member knew who "A" was except Lucy Hale. They were afraid she would tell someone else because she's not so good in keeping secrets. She stated that herself in an online interview so you know it must be true - right?!] This is a Widescreen Presentation (1:78.1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:
