Teen Wolf

The new TV series Teen Wolf  started in the UK a few weeks ago. It's based on the Michael J Fox film about a teenager who becomes a werewolf.

Scott McCall (Tyler Posey) is a typical American teenager. Just before school starts he goes into the woods with his friend Stiles (Dylan O'Brien), looking for a body. When Stiles' dad (who is a policeman) shows up, Scott hides from him and is left alone. He is pursued and then bitten by a wolf. Afterwards he discovers he is changing in unexpected ways, not only is he faster and stronger (which improves his performance on the school lacrosse team) but he also transforms into a werewolf on full moon nights (or when he gets angry)! Around the same time, he meets new girl Allison (Crystal Reed), whose dad happens to be a werewolf hunter. Scott also comes across another werewolf, Derek (Tyler Hoechlin) who he suspects is the one who bit him. Derek denies this and tells Scott his attacker was another wolf, an "Alpha"  werewolf.

I've only seen 3 episodes of this so far and at first I wasn't that impressed but I think it's improving. It reminds me a bit of  The Vampire Diaries but with werewolves, lol. I'm not sure if I've seen the original film (maybe when I was little) but I think that was more of a comedy and this series is darker and more serious.

Teen Wolf is on every Thursday at 8pm on Sky Living (in the UK).

Note: The series will be ahead of us in America, so beware of spoilers! lol.

Unexpected Girls Updates

Back in September I did a post about the American reality TV show Unexpected. You can read it here: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2018/09/unexpected.html

There have been two seasons (or series as we also call it in the UK) so far. There will be a 3rd one  featuring mums Lexus, Mckayla and Chloe (Chloe joined in Series 2). Emiley who joined in Season 2, says she isn't returning (see below) so. Laura (who also joined in S2) will also not be back (see below for more on that). Original cast member Lexus shared a casting call on her Instagram page in November, so it seems the company is looking for new girls due to give birth from March to June 2019. Check out the post here; https://www.instagram.com/p/BpzfLAjg8ek/

The gossip site Starcasm also reports that Unexpected's producers are casting for a new programme: https://starcasm.net/unexpected-producers-casting-pregnant-teens-from-same-high-school-or-tap-program-for-new-reality-series/

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant UK

The Teen Mom universe keeps growing! This month sees the start of a brand new spin-off- a UK version of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. The original Teen Mom, now re-named Teen Mom OG (itself a spin-off on the American reality show 16 and Pregnant, which follow pregnant teenagers) started in 2009 and there have been several other shows since- Teen Mom 2, Teen Mom 3 (cancelled after one season), Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant and Teen Mom: Young Moms Club (formerly Pretty Little Mamas). There have also been several international versions, including Teen Mom UK and Teen Mom Australia. Series 6 of TM: UK just finished and now the British version of Young and Pregnant is due to start next week.

TM: Young and Pregnant UK follows 4 new girls- Charlie, Alisha, Laura and Charlotte who are all expecting babies. When TM UK started only Mia Boardman was pregnant but this time all of the mums were pregnant during filming. (Which makes sense since this is "young and pregnant"! lol).

Unexpected

23/2/19: Updated with new links. :)

Unexpected (full title Unexpected: Teenage & Pregnant) is an American reality TV series following the lives of pregnant teenagers and their partners, and their journey into parenthood. It's the TLC version of the hit show 16 and Pregnant, which spawned the spin off Teen Mom. The first series/season was shown last year, and Series 2 was shown in the US this summer and has just started in the UK.

Season 1 followed  16 year old Lilly Bennett and her boyfriend James,  15 year old Lexus Scheller and boyfriend Shayden, 17, and Mckayla Adkins 16 and her boyfriend Caelan Morrison. Lilly gave birth to daughter Aaliyah Rose, Lexus had a daughter named Scarlett, and McKayla had son Timothy (Timmy).

All 3 of the girls' mums were also teen mothers, and in Lexus' case her grandmother was a teen mum too.


S2 catches up with Mckayla and Lexus, and introduce some new girls and their boyfriends. I'm focusing mainly on the girls here, like with my Te…
