New Year, New Updates

Share Button

Hey everyone,

It’s a New Year and I have a new laptop. It has been somewhat difficult to remain motivated to do all the research involved in my posts on iPads and phones the past few years, but now I have a computer! I realize how much I miss maintaining my blog and I am making it a personal goal to continue and do better than I have in the past.

Most of the shows I generally cover are on hiatus, so I will either be looking for new shows to cover in the meantime or covering episodes of the shows I currently write about that haven’t yet made an appearance on this blog.

Suggestions are ALWAYS welcome and encouraged, as they definitely improve my motivation to update regularly. I hope everyone had a great holiday and I hope 2017 is amazing for all of us.

My blog has been nominated for an award and I need everyone to continue nominating me at this link!

www.theexpertinstitute.com/blog-contest

If it asks for a category, choose “niche/specialty”

It’s my understanding that the blogs with the most nominations are more likely to win. The following is a blurb on how my blog got started. Please help me increase my chances of winning; it would mean the world to me!!

My blog got its start when I was struggling through the painstaking process of studying for the bar exam and wondering how come I could memorize the minutiae of every episode of Pretty Little Liars (when I could still make time to watch) but I couldn’t find a better way to memorize all of the copious information I needed to pass the test.

I decided to make a blog that mixed the two; the blog would cover the laws that the characters broke in episodes of TV shows, starting with Pretty Little Liars. I have since passed the bar exam; I am a barred attorney in New York, and I’ve added other TV shows to the blog, striving to addeducational value to viewers and write about the law in a fun, creative and unique manner.

ANNOUNCEMENT GOOD NEWS

I have been thinking about how to change this blog to make it easier for me to maintain and better for you readers. I finally figured out how to do it. Presently, my entries come out too long; I know that. They often take so long to do, that I would find myself “forcing” myself to do something I love, which was not what I was going for when I started this blog. It would take hours to watch episodes over again to make sure I got every detail. I have been taking a break and focusing on a happy medium/ compromise so that this blog could be successful.

FROM NOW ON: I will be choosing the glaring, INTERESTING, broken laws; the ones that stand out to me the most in episodes of our favorite tv shows. Instead of one long entry, if an episode has a lot I want to cover, I will do more than one entry. These entries will be shorter — don’t worry, they will never be TOO SHORT; I don’t believe myself to be capable. They will be shorter than my current entries though, but more content rich. I plan on producing better written, more creative, well researched articles by implementing this new method. This will benefit both me as a writer and my readers; it will present me with more realistic goals and allow me to create the content I wanted to when I started this blog, and it will make the entries more enjoyable and palatable for readers. The best part is that this will also allow me to update the blog more frequently and regularly!

This idea came to me because as many of you know, one of my favorite shows, Revenge, is coming to an end. Because of that, I have been thinking about the show more often, and in turn, better options for this blog. One particular part of Revenge’s penultimate episode inspired this new idea, and I will be covering it shortly and you will see what I mean. I am very excited about this, as I will be able to provide you with more of what I wanted to when I first started writing this blog. If there is a part that I don’t cover that you would like to see, PLEASE contact me via comments and let me know. Thank you so much for remaining patient; I wanted to restart this blog and be honest with my readers about why I had been struggling to do so. I hope you enjoy the new change as much as I do!

I know it must seem like I am the queen of making excuses, but I am typing this post from the hospital just to let you know that I still intend to keep every promise I made. However, I was in this car when it crashed, so forgive me if I take a little bit. :

Until this blog is back up and running, once my writing class is over, I encourage you to keep coming back because this will be happening very soon. In the meantime, for those who enjoy reading other types of my writing, like theories and analysis, I encourage you to check out my tumblr which can be found at kkthanks.tumblr.com .

Once again, this site will be back up and running soon, I just wanted to provide some content for now. 🙂 Don’t think I haven’t noticed how law focused this season of PLL has been, along with How To Get Away With Murder. Stay tuned! Thanks for your patience and understanding my need to prioritize.

PLL theory (for now) Mona and Ali 2.0

Share Button

My FINAL writing course ends relatively soon (within a matter of weeks) and once that happens, all of my writing time will be devoted to this blog and its initial purpose, pointing out the laws characters break in TV shows. I will catch up on the 3 shows I currently cover (I currently am working on a PLL entry) and I plan to do at least one guest entry on Better Call Saul. It will be a trial run to see how it goes, because I think it will be perfect for this blog. For now, for those of you who are fans of PLL, I am posting a theory regarding Ali, Mona, CeCe and Jason. It revisits one of my original theories about Ali and Mona secretly working together. Check it out, and I can’t wait to get back into the swing of things.

Mona and Ali 2.0:

Mona and Ali have always been rivals. They’ve been two characters that all of us love to hate. Mona and Ali are both unreliable narrators, causing the girls to think both of them were lying at times when they may have been telling the truth about important clues regarding Big A.

The girls recently admitted out loud that they wrongfully accused Alison of being A. They wrongfully accused her of LYING to them about being A. They’ve accused Mona of lying to them on many occasions too, which makes sense considering that she was A. But what if the two biggest liars on the show only really had ONE big secret?

What if Alison and Mona TRULY have been working together in secret the ENTIRE time? I’ve theorized about this in the past, before we learned that Alison was alive. I have found more support for this theory in recent episodes, though. It’s very possible that Alison and Mona, the show’s biggest “enemies,” have secretly been a team this whole time, and the girls didn’t figure it out because they were too busy accusing both Ali and Mona of lying to them.

I have been very busy lately, but PLEASE stay with me, guys. I’m very inspired, and this blog is going to make a comeback in a huge way. You won’t want to miss it!

Just so anyone reading is aware, I’ll be out of the country until next week, but “wait for it” as Alison from PLL would say. While Revenge is on hiatus I’ll be covering the stuff that went on in its most recent episodes. I have my work cut out for me with PLL and How To Get Away With Murder too!

CeCe & Meredith: PLL’s Crazy Twins? THEORY

Share Button

Since I really like wordpress, instead of using my other blog, I’m going to post this PLL theory on here even though it’s off topic in regards to broken laws. I should have 3 broken law recaps coming up on here soon. For now, here’s a theory about Meredith and CeCe from PLL being twins.

I noticed in Aria’s dream/ Ali hallucination (when she had been drugged to sleep by Meredith) Aria did not realize the blonde girl in the room was Ali and not Meredith until Ali turned around. She initially assumed that it was Meredith, because of how similar she and Ali look when they have their backs turned.

This is now a reoccurring theme considering that the same could be said about Cece and Bethany when we consider what we know so far about the night Ali “went missing.” Plenty of PLL fans have noticed that CeCe and Ali look a lot alike, some speculating that they might be related. Melissa’s video revealed that she thought that Bethany was Alison when she didn’t look at the person’s face. Although it has been awhile since we have seen Meredith on the show, I wonder if her resemblance to these girls might have significance. (more…)

Here’s what’s happening:

I am changing this blog to make it easier for me to get things done in a better quality way and more quickly. I am going to focus my coverage of shows on the parts with broken laws, and focus less on the parts that don’t have broken laws, so as to make the entries a bit more manageable. As for updates:

After the Jewish holidays (tonight) I need to rewatch How To Get Away With Murder and Revenge and then with this new method, I should have entries up soon! I love How To Get Away With Murder, so far, by the way. I hope you guys are watching!

A is for Arbitration : Pretty Little Liars Entertaining Law Quote

Share Button

IMG_3546

Today’s entertaining law quote comes from an early episode of Pretty Little Liars, “To Kill A Mocking Girl” (Season 1 episode 3 of PLL).

The quote:

“I can’t arbitrate on one cup of coffee!”

The context: Veronica Hastings is the woman behind this entertaining law quote, which is fitting since she plays an attorney on the show. She utters these words during one of Spencer and Melissa’s epic battles. This particular argument stems from Melissa’s anger about Spencer kissing her fiancé, Wren, and leading to their breakup.

Though she’s accustomed to the Hastings’ sibling rivalry, Veronica needs more caffeine before this civil war.

I hope you enjoyed the quote, and I’m still working on the bigger PLL posts that I owe you guys, so stay tuned for those, and for updates on “Revenge” and “How To Get Away With Murder.” As always, thank you for reading!
