Pretty Little Liars was called one of the most spectacular new shows of summer 2010 thanks to heavy promotion by ABC Family, including \"spicy promos and hot posters\". ABC Family encouraged fans to host a \"Pretty Little Premiere Party\" for the show by sending the first respondents a fan kit, and selected applicants to become part of an interactive \"Secret Keeper Game\" played with iPhones provided by the network. The show's official Facebook and Twitter accounts also promoted special fan features, including a \"Pretty Little Lie Detector\". Los Angeles department store Kitson showcased the show in their shop window.
Pretty Little Liars opened with mixed reviews. Metacritic gave the pilot episode 54 out of 100, based upon 14 critical reviews. The New York Daily News gave the show a positive review, commenting that it \"makes most popular vampire romances look anemic\", while concluding, \"Pretty Little Liars could go in several directions, including mundane teen clichés. It's got an equally good shot at making us care about these imperfect pretty girls.\" A writer on Terror Hook has stated that \" 'Pretty Little Liars' gets off to a very promising start. Great production all around, the writing keeps the viewer on their toes, and the acting just reinforces it. The overall mystery of the show in the end is dark and unpredictable, even stepping into the slasher film realm.\" The New York Post gave the show three out of five stars, stating, \"OK, so we've established that there is no socially redeeming value in this series and that your kids shouldn't watch it if they are too young and impressionable. But if you can distract them enough to miss the first 15 minutes, the show isn't half-bad. Actually, it is half-good, if that makes sense.\" The Los Angeles Times wrote that the series is \"one of those shows that manages to mildly, and perhaps unintentionally, spoof its genre while fully participating in it, and that's not a bad thing at all.\"
A tie-in edition featuring the Season 1 poster and logo of the 2006 first novel in the Pretty Little Liars series was released on the date of the show's premiere, as was the final book of the original book series, \"Wanted\". Wanted later decidedly became the eighth book of the series, as Shepard later confirmed she would extend the series. A TV tie in of the second book \"Flawless\" featuring an altered Season 3 poster was released on December 28, 2010.

Moving the action to a college setting was a good move. Saying goodbye to the high-school setting gives the series an immediate edge over the original's debut, but that's not to say the show is not cliche-ridden and littered with some pretty little errors. 59ce067264
