Life Unexpected Takes a Page From Pretty Little Liars
You have to admit, it’s a pretty awesome storyline. Girl meets boy in bar. Girl and boy develop major crushes on each other. Girl learns boy is actually her high school teacher. Cue drama and crazy mixed up feelings and a lot of puns about teacher’s pets and shiny apples. Pretty Little Liars did it with Aria (Lucy Hale) and Mr. Fitz (Ian Harding) in a way that has us coming back for more. And now it looks like The CW’s Life Unexpected is following suit with Lux (Britt Robertson) and her teacher, Mr. Daniels (Shaun Sipos), falling for each other.
There’s no denying the crazy similarities to the two storylines, right down to Lux meeting Mr. Daniels in an otherwise empty bar, which is exactly how Aria met Mr. Fitz. We have a feeling the producers of Life Unexpected also happen to be fans of Pretty Little Liars (who isn’t?). Will this become a season-long (at least!) scandal, like it did on Pretty Little Liars or will Lux and Mr. Daniels nip it in the bud before things go too far? Of course, we prefer good girl Aria’s romantic escapades with Mr. Fitz than we do (kinda) bad girl Lux’s with Mr. Daniels, but we want to know what you think.
