Hawaii Five-0
Diehard, co-dependent friendships have become the stuff TV legend, not the "Pick me, choose me, love me" romances of the past. If "Orange Is The New Black" then so is the bromance. In honor bromance-based "Hawaii Five-0's" season premiere (and fast appraching 100th episode, I am counting down the 10 best TV bromances in returning shows.

10. Walter and Jesse on AMC's "Breaking Bad"

Technically the show ended in 2013, there's no denying the bizarre bromance between the cancer-stricken chemistry teacher Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and his meth-head former student, Jesse Pinkman (Aaro...

‘Awkward’ Midseason Premiere Recap: Finals

September 24th, 2014 10:07am EDT
Awkward
It’s now or never, people. Or at least that’s what MTV’s “Awkward” keeps hinting at, which begs the question: Are the Jatty love trials coming to an end? Let’s cross our fingers and hope it’s not true, and in the meantime let’s jump off that mind blowing cliff hanger and onto a safe place of absolution found in ep. 12 “Finals.”

Jenna Gets Dumped (Again)

Despite her best efforts to stay committed to her schoolwork, after all ‘tis the season of finals, surprisingly she can’t look at a book and not think of Luke. So, when her string of apology texts goes unanswered, Jenna makes a house, er d...

MTV’s ‘Awkward’ Season 4 Teasers
Pregnancy, what pregnancy? Judging by the liplock session between Matty and Jenna in the “Awkward” trailer for the fall premiere, evil Eva’s pregnancy bomb hasn’t completely obliterated Jatty. But brace yourself Jatty shippers, showrunners Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler hint to TVLine there will be bumps in the road.

“Jenna’s trying to be an adult about Matty. Their romantic relationship didn’t work out, so she’s trying to move on. She’s trying to be a good friend.”

It seemed Palos Hills high school power couple turned sworn enemies Jake and Tamara are going that route this season. ...

'Teen Wolf' Season 4 Finale Recap: An Uneven Season Brings A Strangely Satisfying Finale

'Teen Wolf' Season 4 Finale Recap: An Uneven Season Brings A Str
After a disappointing season, Teen Wolf delivers on the finale by completing ignoring what happened this season. Also, by completely ignoring what makes Teen Wolf so Teen Wolf.

Remember how much hope we had for the Benefactor storyline? Remember how excited we were for Lydia to embrace her banshee powers and get more involved? Remember how we used to love Teen Wolf? Remember DANNY?

I’m not sure Teen Wolf does either. In its fourth season Teen Wolf was in a state of transition state with Allison dying and an unforgettable villain perfectly performed by Dylan O’Brien. So they concocted a s...

'Teen Wolf' Season 4 Episode 11 Recap: Less Teen Melodrama, Please

September 2nd, 2014 8:37am EDT
Teen Wolf
After last week’s pretty disappointing “Monstrous,” Teen Wolf delivers a more character-focused episode that still leaves me feeling a little empty inside.

Maybe we’ve been spoiled for the past few season of Teen Wolf, but it’s generally around this time that the plot and energy kind of explodes into what I can only describe as 44 minutes of the characters scrambling around to dubstep as they try and find their footing. The stakes were always raised and they were always based in character. You can actually trace it back all the way to the beginning. In fact, I will break down penultimate e...

The Top 10 VMA Performances of All Time
The MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) generate more controversy than most other award shows. Some are epic, and many are epic fails. But there are always several that stand the test of time.

Many of today's music legends made their mark during the awards and in turn, made history. From Madonna to Britney to Justin Timberlake, here are the Top 10 VMA Performances of All Time:

10. Justin Timberlake, Medley 2013

It was the performance of the evening and clearly more classy than the bump and grind of Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke. Timberlake's Michael Jackson Video Vanguard honor was a well-des...

'Teen Wolf' Recap: Peter Hale Is The Villain We Deserve

Remember season one? No else does either. It was laughably bad sometimes thanks to a low budget and some choice cinematography, but Teen Wolf's first season is one I generally remember fondly though I don't remember many plot points but I have done my homework Since Teen Wolf's fourth season is at a crossroads, it feels natural that it is essentially rebooting itself and digging into its season one roots. But remember how you don't remember season one?

This whole rebooting business has irked me quite a bit lately. Teen Wolf has added more characters and complications than necessary, cutti...

MTV VMAs Flashback: Miley Cyrus & Robin Thicke Cause Controversy In 2013

August 24th, 2014 4:07pm EDT
Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus
Sure, it was just a year ago, but Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke had people talking for months last year following their performance of Thicke's hit "Blurred Lines" at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Their raunchy performance together (which may or may not have set the wheels in motion for Thicke's 2014 split from wife Paula Patton), which featured lots of "twerking" and Miley even grinding on Thicke's crotch, caused a huge controversy over what kids should be seeing on television.

This year, the Parent's Television Council (PTC) has asked MTV to tone things down, but it sounds like those reque...

Whatever Happened To The Cast Of Jersey Shore?

jersey shore
The show that revived the economy of a little shore town called Seaside Heights, New Jersey, "Jersey Shore" became an instant smash for MTV. Chronicling the lives of young adults who lived together in a summer shore house, it became a juggernet for the network and made millions for its stars. Since the series ended, the house is available for tours and the Shore Store where the cast worked still promotes t-shirts with their likeness' available; but the cast has moved on to lives away (or in some cases in front of ) the cameras. Whatever happened to the cast of "Jersey Shore?" Read on and fi...

'Teen Wolf' Recap: The Benefactor Reveal Wasn't Disappointing, It Was Awful

'Teen Wolf' Recap: The Benefactor Reveal Wasn't Disappointing, I
The Benefactor is supposed to be some big reveal but I can’t help but feel cheated. Cheated of this great big reveal only for it to mean absolutely nothing because I was too busy trying to make sense of what the hell actually happened this episode. There were convoluted plots that were poorly explained, awful pacing and awkward edits. I’m declaring it: this episode is the worst episode of recent memory for Teen Wolf, even after it started out so strong.

What’s so freaking problematic about this is that it just feels off. I’m sure the editors did their best with such a choppy script that we...
