Scream episode 5 recap: Broken ties

On the last episode of MTV’s Scream, Emma’s first time with Will was uploaded to everyone’s phone through Nina’s laptop. While trying to figure out who was responsible for recording her, she gets a phone call from Ghostface. Seems like he might be a suspect. as well. My guess is that Jake has something to do with this little video and Nina wasn’t so innocent either. There’s a new detective on the case — an old friend of the Sheriff’s. While at the vigil she asks Emma if she’d be able to stop by the sheriff’s office to speak with […]

Whenever Nev and Max encounter a celebrity on their show it usually involves someone trying to catfish them. The tables have turned this week on Catfish as the celebrity is the one looking to see if he’s being catfished by a “regular” girl. Ryan “R. Prophet,” formerly a part of the Grammy-nominated group Nappy Roots, recently started using social media. (I know, it’s crazy that he’s just starting to figure out how to use Facebook.) Prophet got to know a girl named Trinity and the two instantly connected. They started messaging each other almost every day but they still have yet […]

MTV’s “White People” documentary aims to get white Millennials talking about race

This past weekend, Democratic presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley ran into trouble during their appearances at Netroots Nation, a progressive political conference, when Black Lives Matter activists interrupted their speeches to draw attention to a topic that has been of increasing prominence especially over the past year — the deaths of people of color at the hands of police officers, and the idea of white privilege. Many activists were disappointed with these candidates’ responses, or non-responses, and in a way, it demonstrated how, among white people — even progressive candidates — race can be a very delicate and […]

Scream episode 1 recap: A haunting past

Now that the long awaited night has finally arrived, fans of the original Scream movie have been able to witness the new MTV adaptation of the film in the new series Scream. I’m personally a huge fan of the original movie and was quite skeptical at first. However, I know this isn’t going to be exactly the same and I’m OK with that. I’m excited to see how MTV is going to take a classic horror movie and draw it out into a series. The show starts off with the typical high school drama scene: popular girl leaks a video of non-popular […]
