'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?

August 23rd, 2014 1:56pm EDT
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...

'Teen Wolf' Recap: Quarantine Within A Quarantine, Inception Style

August 5th, 2014 8:41am EDT
Teen Wolf - Stiles
Teen Wolf goes from supernatural to sci-fi this week in a way that mirrors real-life in a very sad way. Nothing on this show can touch the tragedy of the Ebola outbreak, but it’s strangely poignant to be reminded of such real world stakes.

On a lighter note, our episode begins with our assassin/pseudo-Frankenstein concocting a special poison against his werewolf monster. He looks like that bug salesman assassin from that one episode of Buffy. He listens for instructions on how to get the ca-ching on a tape, which we also hear…

Scott and Stiles listen to. Something about wire transfers and...

'Teen Wolf' Recap: Teenage Assassins Meet Their Demise, Everyone Embraces For Other Reasons

July 29th, 2014 8:35am EDT
Teen Wolf
This was such a heavy episode of Teen Wolf. After last week’s shenanigans, I figured it just be another week of Teenage Assassins, but instead Teen Wolf plays on its relationships more than anything.

There's something to be said for this transitionary year of Teen Wolf.Sure, it's basically ignored most of its core players -- there has been no talk of Isaac or Danny, for example -- but it's also putting the emotional stuff on these relationships we've watched for four seasons now. I don't think I'd care about this show at all if it weren't for the Scott and Stiles scenes and Lydia's friends...

'Teen Wolf' Recap: Lacrosse & Lycanthropy

Teen Wolf
Here's a PSA to supernatural creatures: stay away from Beacon Hills. And Beacon County. There have been werewolf attacks, kanima paralysis, packs of Alphas, crazy maybe-bisexual Druids, nogitsunes, and now a freaking Deadpool of assassins trying to kill anyone for a buck. Out of the 30,000 people who live in Beacon Hills, I recommend abandoning ship.

Like this blond werewolf chick who I desperately rooted to stay alive. I know it was impossible for her to stay alive because she appeared before the credits, but still. She fought off the impossibly tiny little assassin named Violet before i...

'Teen Wolf' Recap: The Lake House

'Teen Wolf' Recap: The Lake House
The Sheriff’s department is on the roof, waiting for one of the experts to investigate the murder. You know it's a big deal when the entire department is on the roof (and with a helicopter!). Then, as if the bat signal summoned him, Derek Hale arrives on the scene. Actually, Derek has always been Batman, he's just now embracing it. They investigate the cannibalistic teenager, who is a Wendigo – cannibalistic shapeshifters. But something smells wolfy.

That would be Liam, who is held in duct tape against his will at Scott's house. Scott and Stiles didn't really think this through, other than...
