THE WRITERS’ ROOM: “Pretty Little Liars” Recapped and Revealed

Jim Rash and the creators of Pretty Little Liars are watching a YouTube clip of a screeching fan and her best friends as they squirm and cry through the season 4 finale of Pretty Little Liars. Throughout the episode one constantly pleads, “Get me through this!” to her fellow watchers. We screened a few fan videos on the set of THE WRITERS’ ROOM, but that one is particularly telling. Every plot twist is blessed with a jubilant shriek. Every cliff-hanger, another spilled bag of popcorn. And after the show’s credits, most fans head over to Twitter to discuss and debate all the details.

10 Schools Where Getting a Hall Pass is the Least of your Worries

It’s not like high school isn’t strange enough as it is. Add a little supernatural seasoning and you get TV shows and movies where high school gets downright spooky-weird, which makes for great angst-filled horror stories.

1. Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry Potter (2001-2011)
“Oh well, what’s life without a few dragons?”

It should come as no surprise that a school dedicated to the education of young witches and wizards would be filled with magical goings-on, including a whomping willow tree on the grounds (never mind an entire forbidden forest). But things got extra-strange when the Boy Who Lived enrolled. Basilisk in the basement? Check. Boggarts in the classroom? Oh yes. Centaurs, Dementors and ghosts? Of course. Even the climactic standoff, where numerous witches and wizards on both sides perished, is dubbed the Battle of Hogwarts.
