The best freeform shows of all time

8 Freeform Shows That Make Your Life Just A Little Bit Better

I promise you will not find the TV version of "10 Things I Hate About You" on this list... I have to much self respect.


I will confess that Freeform was my own personal form of crack in middle school it is genuinely ALL I watched. These shows range from their most popular to more obscure ones that got canceled pretty quickly.

1. "Switched at Birth"

This show was full of representation — be that for the deaf community, for people from different levels of income, for different sexuality or even different ethnicities — and this has something for everyone. This show tugged at my heart strings week after week and will probably always be the show that made me cry the most.

2. "Baby Daddy"

This was one of Freeforms best, and I might be biased because i went to a taping and met the cast but they are the real deal. This show ending was such a loss for the network and for me personally because it was at its heart about family and love and that is something you need more of one TV.

3. "Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists"

Now this show is fairly new, so I have only seen the first few episodes but it is turning out to be just as action packed as the show is is based on. There is murder and anonymous messages and romance and my two favorite girls Alison and Mona return.

4. "The Lying Game"

This show was ALMOST as action packed as "Pretty Little Liars." It's almost like if the "Parent Trap" was a teen soap opera. It's full of hot girls and guys and so much drama you will constantly be on the edge of you're seat.

5. "Jane By Design"

This is a show that didn't even nearly get as much time as it should have. I believe it had one season (maybe 2) but it was just the best. It followed Jane and her best friend Billy, as she navigates being a high school student and a fashion designer.

6. "Pretty Little Liars"

This is the show I have invested the most time in. I have probably watched it all the way through at least eight times. From beginning to end, it is drama filled and I loved every single moment of it. The cast is stellar and the plot never disappointed.

7. "The Fosters"

There are very few shows that have as much depth as this one especially shows on a network for young adults. I watched this show for years and was so sad to see it end because I fell completely in love with every single character. PLUS THAT THEME SONG!

8. "Young & Hungry"

This is Emily Osment's best work (I am so sorry Hannah Montana). This show doesn't take its self too seriously and is full of wit and heart. You will fall in love with every single character — especially the leading man, Josh.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
