Excuse the pun, but the Pretty Little Liars television show is just as revealing. For example, most teen shows that contain a student-teacher affair story line may last one or two episodes, but the student-teacher affair on the ABC Family show has lasted over three seasons. The affair between Mr. Fitz, the high school English teacher, and Aria began when Aria was a 16-year-old sophomore.
In the clip below, Aria has a daydream that someone exposed the affair to the principal. The scene is dramatized, because not once during the last three seasons did Mr. Fitz fear that he would go to jail for statutory rape. Why? Because the age-of-consent in Pennsylvania is 16-years-old. Mr. Fitz's only fear was that he would lose his job for making out with his student in the classroom, in his car and in his apartment.
