Pretty Little Liars

Pretty Little Liars is an American teen drama mystery/thriller television series created by Marlene King, the show premiered on June 8, 2010 on ABC Family. The series based on Sara Shepard's popular teen novels focuses on four teenaged girls who made a pact not to talk about what happened the night their friend disappeared a year ago.

Set in the fictitious town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania, the series follows the lives of Aria Montgomery (Lucy Hale), Spencer Hastings (Troian Bellisario), Hanna Marin (Ashley Benson) and Emily Fields (Shay Mitchell), four girls whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of their queen bee, Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse). One year later, they begin receiving messages from a mysterious figure using the name "A" who threatens to expose their secrets. At first they think it's Alison herself, but after she is found dead, the girls realize that someone else knows their secrets, including long-hidden ones they thought only Alison knew. As the show continues they discover more secrets that can harm not only them but the ones around them. They also discover clues that may lead them to find out the identity of "A" and Ali's death.

First I thought it is just another "I Know What You Did Last Summer", but it far more than that, the series has lot of things to offer. The characters are great and some part of their lives happened on teen’s life today that is why viewers can relate to it. The series is a bit realistic than those other TV series which is more on fantasy (referring about vampires, sorcerers, witches and alike TV shows) that you can’t really relate your life with. Pretty Little Liars also share lessons in life in some of their episodes but mostly their episodes will make the viewers think and think deeper.

Cougar Town

Cougar Town is an American television sitcom that premiered on ABC on 23 September 2009. The show was created by Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel and is produced by Coquette Productions in association with ABC Studios. The series focuses on a recently divorced woman in her forties facing the often humorous challenges, pitfalls and rewards of life's next chapter, along with her son, ex-husband, and friends who together make up her dysfunctional, but supportive and caring extended family.

The first season premiere episode shows Jules while she examines her naked body in the mirror for signs of aging. Jules, now divorced from her husband Bobby, tries to re-enter the dating world and relate to her young assistant Laurie. Jules' best friend and neighbor, Ellie, tries to prevent her from going out while her son is constantly being embarrassed by both of his parents. Jules begins dating Josh (Nick Zano). Jules' relationship with Josh ends when Josh tells Jules that he loves her. Unfortunately Jules does not feel the same way. Later Jules begins a relationship with Jeff (Scott Foley) a client who infuriates Jules with his indecision. Her relationship with Jeff ends when the relationship becomes too serious for Jules who is not looking for anything too serious so soon after her divorce, whereas Jeff is ready to settle down as he has being 'playing the field' for a long time.

After her relationship with Jeff ends, Jules falls into bed with ex-husband, Bobby (Brian Van Holt). This causes Bobby's feelings for Jules to stir even more and he later tells her that he wants her back. Jules, however, tells him that she loves him but 'not that way anymore' and that their happy ending is them as friends, raising their son, Travis (Dan Byrd) together. Toward the end of the season, the simmering feelings between Jules and neighbor Grayson (Josh Hopkins) boil to the surface, and the two begin
a relationship.

Cougar Town opened to mixed reviews from critics. Metacritic gave the series 49 out of 100 based on the pilot episode, from the 21 reviews it collected, and a user score of 4.5 out of 10 based on 46 votes. Many critics have speculated that show will only have a narrow target audience: older women; with Alessandra Stanley of The New York Times stating that the shows "plot description alone could drive away male viewers" while the Los Angeles Times' Mary McNamara opined that it "is fun and exciting for women over 40." Despite speculation, the show has done well with young males and young adults in all key demographics.

In The Irish Times Kate Holmquist writes that "Cox is both a symbol and a red light warning for everything that is wrong with the Hollywood portrayal of middle-aged women, who are rarely wise or strong or naturally aged" and states that she is "the female version of the pervert in a dirty raincoat". In contrast to the previous year, season 2 received positive reviews from critics. The second season currently holds an average score of 75 out of 100 on Metacritic, based on 7 reviews, indicating 'generally favorable reviews'. Hitfix writer Alan Sepinwall also gave a positive review of the show, saying that "midway through the first season the writers realized their cast was so funny together that the wisest course was to just put everyone together as often as possible. By the end of the season, it was often funnier many weeks than the Modern Family episode leading into it. This is still the show that Cougar Town became at mid-season last year."

It was developed by Laeta Kalogridis for The WB, it was produced in 2002. This is a fantastic series which loved by many fans, unfortunately the show was one of the many that did not get to live as long as it should have. Despite the interesting storyline, addicting characters, a good theme, and a wonderful cast and crew, also with an amazing start within the 13 episodes the viewership quickly began to fall and the series was canceled.

The series is set in New Gotham City, several years after it has been abandoned by Batman, with Barbara Gordon, and Helena as the Huntress, having taken over his war on crime. A central feature of the series is the concept of metahumans. Individuals born with powers that cannot be explained, such as Helena and Dinah. No two metahumans have the same ability (or set of abilities) and there exists a whole sub culture of metahuman society that the outside world knows nothing about. Detective Reese introduced in this series who teamed up with Huntress and the Birds of Prey to defeat metahuman criminals. At first, he is disapproving of Helena's vigilantism, even trying to arrest her, but eventually he realises there is a need for the Birds of Prey to take down criminals the police can't handle. During the course of the show, the Birds of Prey often find themselves confronted with schemes masterminded by Dr. Quinzel, though they are unaware of her involvement until the final episodes of the series. Her attempts to discover what Helena is hiding, and the duplicitous nature of their therapy sessions together, form a large part of the series arc, beginning in the pilot episode, and being resolved in the series finale.

The Green Hornet

Van Williams as the Green Hornet and Bruce Lee as Kato in The Green Hornet TV SeriesThe Green Hornet is a fictional crime fighter which is originally created by Fran Striker for an American radio program in the 1930s, the character appeared in other media including it's television appearance in the 1960s. Inspired by the success of the Batman series, ABC brought The Green Hornet to television in 1966-67, an adaptation which introduced martial arts master Bruce Lee to American audiences and starred Van Williams as the Green Hornet.

Green Hornet is Britt (or "Brit") Reid, a newspaper publisher by day who by night goes out in his masked "Green Hornet" identity to fight crime as a vigilante. While the police and public believe the Hornet to be a ruthless criminal, the District Attorney knows Reid's secret identity, and welcomes his assistance in fighting racketeers and criminals. Also assisting Reid in his crusade are his secretary, Lenore Case, and his faithful valet, Kato (played by none other than the best in the business Bruce Lee), who is a Kung Fu expert and who drives the sleek "Black Beauty", the Hornet's well armed car. The Black Beauty could fire explosive charges from tubes at its bumpers, which were said to be rockets with explosive warheads, had a concealed-when-not-in-use, drop-down knock-out gas nozzle in the center of the front grille, and could launch a small flying video/audio surveillance device through the trunk lid. One relatively minor aspect of the character which tends to be given limited exposure in the actual productions is his blood relationship to The Lone Ranger, another character created by Striker. The Western property was sold to another company in the 1950s, a legal complication that resulted in the identity of the Masked Rider of the Plains being obscured when it has been dealt with at all in Green Hornet depictions.

Van Williams and Bruce Lee in The Green Hornet TV SeriesThe first episode of the series entitled, "The Silent Gun", aired at 730pm on Friday 9th September 1966 and was followed by the fantasy/time travel series "Time Tunnel". A few weeks later, on 28th September 1966, both the Green Hornet and Kato made guest appearances on the "Batman" episode "The Spell of Tut" in what was the first of two crossover plots in three episodes (the others being "A Piece of the Action" -1st March 1967 and "Batman's Satisfaction" -2nd March 1967). The music of "Flight of the Bumblebee" was so strongly identified with The Green Hornet that it was retained as the theme, orchestrated by Billy May (who also composed the new background scores) and conducted by Lionel Newman, with trumpet solo by Al Hirt.
