‘Awkward’ Season 4 Episode 16 Recap ‘Hashtag Drama’

October 22nd, 2014 10:35am EDT
Awkward
The sh*t has officially hit the fan. The dude database is hijacking Jenna and Tamara’s newsfeeds and turning Palos Hills High into a teen fight club. In “Awkward’s” “Hashtag Drama” ep, Jenna and Tamara get swept up in the fracas when Owen is rated #secrethottiewithabody. Thinking Jenna tagged him, he gives her a cheek kiss as gratitude. Problem is Tamara is the one that penned those kind words and for good reason. She hooked up with him. Did anyone else have this pop song in their head during the BFF’s dispute? Jenna’s attempts to apologize to Tamara only backfire when *NEWSFLASH*she makes ...

5 Ways ‘Awkward’ Jenna Is Like Matty
I know what you’re thinking: 'Awkward's' Jenna and Matty couldn’t be any more different. You’d be right, but only when it comes to their rollercoaster of a relationship. A part (which is, sadly quite often this season) they’re more likely to rub off on each other. Jenna is certainly picking up on Matty’s dysfunctional relationship tips, and I highlight five of them below.

1. Secret Lovers- It’s almost like history repeating itself when junior cougar Jenna spurred a secret rendezvous relationship with sophomore Owen. Not unlike the one Matty initiated on Jenna seasons ago, and had her make ...

Awkward
The Palos Hills jocks have transformed the slam book into the phonebook in “Bonfire Vanities.” Taking a cue from Ludacris, the jocks rate their hookups and area code the girls in…you guessed it, an actual phonebook.

Below are the five most epic moments of “Bonfire Vanities.”

'Awkward' Season 4 Episode 14 Recap Welcome To Hell, Rejection And Acceptance

October 8th, 2014 11:13am EDT
Awkward
I have a greater appreciation for my generation where college rejection letters were literally a hard copy letter wrapped around a thin envelope of terror. And mailed to your home where you have the luxury, at the very least, to wallow in being cast off in solitude. Unfortunately Jenna’s plugged-in gen warrants a more fast-paced approach to getting that fateful response.

And how horrifying is it when our fav self-conscious gal doesn’t get the reaction she expects in a crowded classroom of college acceptees, including bestie Tamara? Epically disappointing enough to keep the truth on the D.L...

'Awkward' Season 4, Episode 13 Recap: Auld Lang Party

Awkward
“Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind?”

If it’s inching closer to midnight on New Year’s Eve without a male or female pucker in sight. Ab-so-lu-te-ly!! But Jenna would instruct us to do as she says and not as she does. And what she did was smooch a sophomore on the night’s most ChapStick worthy night. So, hold the phone, is Jenna a jr. cougar? Sound off in the comments below.

Let’s rewind to 3 or 4 hours before the midnight kissing madness began. While Lacey borrowed a sparkling number from Taylor Swift’s closet to wear to Ally’s New Year’s party, Jenna primed her ...

‘Awkward’ Midseason Premiere Recap: Finals

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

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...
