Let’s dive into "Awkward’s" penultimate ep, “Personal Statement,” which kicks off with Jenna traipsing confidently around her house flaunting a collegiate scarf. A hopeful fashion statement for pulling the trigger on her college app submissions later on that night, but still makes a mental checklist of her qualifications (grades ✓extra-curricular ...

MTV
Now that MatEva is an official thing (ewww, I know) or at least seems to be, me thinks Eva’s more the D.T.F girl, rather than the D.T.R type chick. Either way her mission to land a McKibben is pretty, much accomplished, but not without some manipulative maneuvering to get there. So, here we trace the 6 scheming steps Eva took to snag Matty.

1. For starters, she drove a wedge between Matty’s friends-with-benefits, sometime girlfriend, let’s just be friends partner Jenna. One startling example: Jenna looked to Eva for some girl counseling on Matty’s one word text to her, and she makes matter...

5 TV Shows You Should Binge Watch This Summer
Popcorn films once ruled the summer entertainment season. Now, TV is king. Every TV viewer, from the casual ones to the fanatics, easily finds shows that appeal to their binge-watching appetite among the ratings kings, or the ones critics obsess over. However, some smaller cult shows often get neglected by TV fans.

Being a television fan 1.0.1 says you must know all the highs and lows of shows like Breaking Bad, Lost, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, I Love Lucy, and The Sopranos. But they’re just a number of remarkably written, acted, and directed televisions series, some of which are currently ...

10 Hilarious Cartoons Not Just for Kids
With Fox's The Simpsons now well into its third decade on the air, it's been established for a while that animated television shows can appeal to the masses or even be aimed squarely at adult viewers.

From the antics of Peter Griffin to the adventures of Kyle, Stan, Cartman and Kenny, there are plenty of great shows that lull you in with the cartoon animation you watched as a kid, only to wallop you over the head with their over-the-top adult humor.

Here are 10 of our favorite cartoons aimed at adult audiences.

7 Canceled TV Shows We Wish Netflix Would Bring Back
Arrested Development's successful return for a fourth season on Netflix was lauded as a just reward for a show that was often viewed as a critical success but just didn't have the viewers to show for it. Arrested Development's success on Netflix started a new era of original programming for the company that has since given us other hits like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black.

With Netflix's status as a home for quality original shows still on the rise, we thought it might be fun to take a look at back at some of our favorite canceled shows that, like Arrested Development, were pe...

'Awkward' Season 4 Episode 8 Recap: Prison Breaks
Just when we thought Matty and Jake were the only ones on legal lockdown, Jenna, Luke and Tamara created their own version of being under lock and key in "Prison Breaks" ep.

We pick up where we left off: six happy couples crowding Tamara’s car are replaced with two mopping singles just shy of an Adele-like meltdown. Shaking off Matty’s verbal sting, Jenna offers to get all their grooves back with an impromptu college tour of hotties. Sadie blows off the rebound road trip whereas Tamara is 100 percent down to go; given her lifeline/stalker feed (her phone for those wondering) has been stole...

11 Things You Didn't Know About Ann B. Davis, The Brady Bunch's
Although an accredited actress for many years, it wasn't until taking on the role as the voice of reason in the Brady household did Ann B. Davis become a household name. For over 40 years, she was known as Alice, the maid, third parent and voice of reason on the iconic 1970's series, "The Brady Bunch." While much was known about her character, little was revealed about this talented woman's personal life, as she wished it to remain private. Upon her death on June 1, 2014 of a subdural hematoma, Davis was thrust back into the spotlight once again, this time as a woman who raised a generation...

Laura McCreary Takes Us Inside The 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Writers
Brooklyn Nine-Nine was a surprise hit for FOX this past season, including raking in two Golden Globe Awards. So what's it like behind the scenes at the fictional 99th Precinct? BFTV sat down with writer Laura McCreary to get some insight into the show's explosion of popularity and how all the laughs come together.

"It's definitely exciting," Laura said of Brooklyn Nine-Nine's success so far. "We had no idea. Obviously FOX is always behind the show, and there was great promotion to start, but we really had no idea if people were watching, how the momentum was doing."

She called working in ...

'Awkward' Season 4 Episode 7 Recap: After Hours
How long before Matty’s spiral of destructive acts comes to a halt? If I were a betting woman I’d say the season finale. Until then, his latest night life adventure lands him in the clink alongside Jake. Jenna can’t shake her feelings for Matty and another two-some has changed their relationship status to single on Facebook.

“After-Hours” opens as a horror movie, okay, my own version of terror: Jenna’s working on math equations, but more or less reciting “1+1.” And we all know that extra numeral is … come on where there is an open book there he’ll be; Luke. The study session quickly turns ...
