Hi, this Natalie. If I had to narrow down when I became addicted to pop culture and TV, hands down it would be when I tuned into dun-a-nun-a-nunt-na-na Beverly Hills 90210. I became obsessed with all things 90210 and carried that addiction over to other dramas and sitcoms. Parlaying my love of writing and TV watching with a blogging gig at MTV and entertainment and pop culture writer for Regal Magazine. You can follow me @forevergoode

‘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

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 ...

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 11 Episode 4 Recap Reality’s Questionabl
“Nobody’s memory is perfect or complete,” voiceover Meredith starts, kicking off “Only Mama Knows” episode, where “Grey’s Anatomy” writers take us on a journey down the rabbit hole of the Ellis Grey/Richard Webber torrid affair and finally uncover its destruction.

To give her memory a jolt Mer digs into the archives and pulls out an old Ellis Grey speech boasting about the Grey Method. Mer watches with pride in her eyes, despite Derek throwing her the stink eye. Setting off round two of the Shepherds showdown; Derek still can’t wrap his head around Mer blowing off a workday when proving he...

‘Law & Order SVU’ Season 16 Episode 4 Recap: ‘Holden’s Manifesto’

October 16th, 2014 9:15am EDT
Law & Order SVU
I know how the SVU writers spent their summer vacations; thumbing through newspapers for the most heinous sexual crimes that would make up season 16. We’re already four episodes deep into the season and I already want to draw up a petition removing the “no actual person is represented “disclaimer shown at the beginning of each episode.

Yet, if the well is full they might as well draw from it. In “Holden’s Manifesto” we’re introduced to Holden, a narcissistic documentarian with a penchant for getting revenge on all his unrequited loves. If you’ve recently been struck by déjà vu, it’s becaus...

'Awkward' Recap: 6 Epic Moments From 'Bonfire Vanities'

October 15th, 2014 8:40am EDT
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. Tamara and Jenna fight fire with fire. Hehehe… get it? Because this “Awkward” ep is about the senior bonfire…okay, and our Sadie ship Sergio pleas have finally been answered. Below are the five most epic moments of “Bonfire Vanities.”

grey's anatomy
In the third episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” everyone is letting their weaknesses show…to the wrong people. Meredith reclaims her voiceover duties in the “Got to be Real” episode by enlightening us on the dangers and strengths of chucking that flawless (sorry, Bey) mask and expose those worry lines of vulnerability. Below I’ve broken up the surgeries and paired them with their venting partners.

Alex and Meredith

In the aftermath of learning she is sister to yet another unfamiliar face at the hospital, Mer consults with her new person at the most inconvenient time—when Alex is lathering up his...

‘Law & Order SVU' Season 16, Episode 3 Recap Best and Worst Scenes of 'Producer's Backend'

October 9th, 2014 9:47am EDT
Law & Order: SVU
Taking another page out of the real life playbook “Producer’s Backend” centers on a former child star with a penchant for causing havoc (sound familiar?) to herself, but mostly to others around her. Fortunately, Liv gets to the root of how and why the former child star is such a law-bending emotional train wreck. Below are eight of the best and worst scenes from “Producer’s Backend.”

BEST- Miranda Rights Done Right

'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...

'Grey's Anatomy' Season 11, Episode 2 Recap Puzzle With a Piece Missing

October 3rd, 2014 8:54am EDT
grey's anatomy
All the pieces in Maggie Pierce’s current life are, well, scattered; her social life consists of serial phone calls to her parents in avoidance of making friends and on-call rooms are used to complete crossword puzzles instead of in-hospital booty calls. While she seamlessly finds answers to medical mysteries, she’s lacking when it comes to resolutions in her personal life.

Makin’ the Rounds

The “Puzzle with a Piece Missing” opens with Maggie sharing, through a hijacked voiceover, a fun fact: Her record for “The New York Times” crossword puzzle is 11 minutes, which she hasn’t broken since...

'Grey’s Anatomy's' Eight Most Intense Family Disputes
You can cut the tension with a scalpel when new colleague and (unbeknownst to Mer) half-sister Maggie squared off against her in the O.R. during last week’s season premiere of Grey's Anatomy. And from the looks of tonight’s ep that animosity is still simmering on the surface.

But it wouldn’t be the first case of family drama pervading the halls of the hospital. Below we take a look back at the 10 most intense family disputes to visit Seattle Grace hospital.
