Tamora Monroe is a Fantastic Villain on ‘Teen Wolf’

So, I saw a teaser clip that showed the re-introduction of Ethan and Jackson to the series. I was super excited because I felt like Jackson’s story ended too quickly. But my excitement was quickly replaced by confusion because Ethan and Jackson are in a relationship. The last time we saw Jackson, he was figuring out how to detangle himself from Lydia.

Lets Get Spunky! A Blast From the Past

"Let's Get Spunky!" is the retro-spoof debut comedy from the deranged minds at Seriously Distur6ed Studios, LLC, written and directed by Robert Glenn Plotner. Imagine falling asleep while watching TVLand and awakening in a world of classic era television where everything has been turned on its head, demented and smartly twisted as if Mayberry had been invaded by Monty Python or "Leave it to Beaver" had become entwined with "Family Guy." In the pilot episode, 8-year-old Spunky Wisenheimer joins the Army's Guinea Pig Corps and gets firsthand experience with above-ground nuclear testing. The fallout takes Spunky into a darkly comic landscape populated by escaped mutants, desperately lonely Army Nuke testers, strange appendages, a heroic lactating dwarf, and a G-Man with an unusual interest in taking Spunky under his wing. Classic television will wake up with a terrible hangover, jump in the shower, and try desperately to scrub all the dirty away - but it will never, never be the same.
