Think it over

Ok first off I am going to get all of the boring crap out of the way first. This. Show is NOT MEANT FOR YOUNG KIDS ok now that I have got my point across this Show is very very good exspeciualy if u like. Horror or mystery with a little action and fun just keep in mind it is about a killer but it also proves everyone no mater who needs and deserves a second.chance once in awile I love it give it a shot just not for small.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (10):

Armed with a charismatic male lead and an effectively suspenseful plot, Twisted has the potential to snare fans of teen-centric thrillers like Pretty Little Liars. But dialogue that's average at best -- coupled with a few far-from-gripping performances (see: Denise Richards) -- make this moody mystery so-so rather than stellar.

If anything's worth tuning in for, it's Jogia's magnetic performance as suspected "sociopath" Danny Desai, who proves a perfect blend of chilling and charming. He's also got great comic timing, resulting in a likable antihero you can't help but hope is innocent.
