Jane By Design Deserves a Second Chance

It took me weeks, but I finally sat down and watched the season finale of Jane By Design. Or maybe I should say series finale? Rather abruptly — after just one season — ABC Family decided to cancel the show, which only garnered a 0.4 rating for its finale [source].

While Jane By Design may not have been on par with the supernova ratings for Pretty Little Liars or Switched at Birth, it was a highly popular show with a fan base that’s now angry to boot. And rightfully so. Cancelling Jane By Design was premature and I want it back! Continue reading

Did I mention that she has two boys fighting over her this season? Power to awkward ladies everywhere!

Catch up on last season of Awkward. here. Continue reading

Aria Montgomery Grows Up to Be Kate Quimby

After watching back to back episodes of Pretty Little Liars and Jane By Design I took away three things: (1) In the ABC Family universe 20-something men love hooking up with teen girls, (2) I still don’t fully accept Terri Hatcher as Jane and Ben’s mom and (3) I think that Kate Quimby is adult Aria Montgomery in disguise. They’re fashion and hair twins separated by decades and one hour of television.
