From The Mouth of A
The process of taking the book and turning it to the small screen is one which I think went extremely well aside from the physicality of some of the characters. However, I’m not so invested in the books (i.e. I haven’t been reading from the very beginning, and I’m only on book 4 now) that it bothers me like it did with Twilight (gag) and True Blood.
Episode one, the Pilot, was incredibly true to the majority of the first book though I’m betting that the reason it was only as much as it was, was so that there would end up being more than just 8 episodes.
I can’t help but wonder how exactly they’re going to potentially continue on this show into other seasons. I mean, with the Sookie Stackhouse books there is so much going on in each book that it provides material for an entire series. Sadly, PLL doesn’t offer than sort of pool to dive into. Also, are they going to expand story lines and/or add in new ones in order to stretch this out into at least a second season?
I guess this means that we’ll just have to see what next weeks bring.
