Nothing like Pretty Little Liars, which makes it great
26 April 2017 | by bellealecSee all my reviews

As a huge fan of Marlene King's "Pretty Little Liars" series, I wasn't sure what to expect when approaching "Famous In Love." I knew it would be an entirely different genre, and that's what makes it so great.

The show follows Paige Townsen through her journey into the spotlight, but oddly, she does not always feel like the main character. Rainer, her co-star and love interest, seems to have more interesting story lines than she does as times, despite not being the lead. Paige's two best friends, Jake and Cassie, both have extremely different, yet similar, personalities, and whereas Cassie's frustration with her best friend at times is understandable, Jake comes across as shallow, especially when all his friends want to do is help.

As the series progresses, the stories and characters grow to become likable, all except Jake, which is my only complaint considering he's in it as much as he is. There seems to be no sort of character development, and the writers constantly have him walking around shirtless, which is completely cringe-worthy. Even Rainer, the famous one, doesn't do that.

Overall, Famous in Love is an unsurprisingly good new show by Marlene King and I hope that it continues to stick around for years to come.
