Pugwall was an Australian kids TV series from the late 80s/early 90s.  Based on the book of the same name by Margaret Clark, it was about a boy called Peter Unwin George Wall (played by Jason Torrens) whose nickname Pugwall came from each of the letters of his name. Pugwall lives with his parents and younger sister Marion (Emma Snow), nicknamed Marmaloid. His big dream is to be in a band and when he gets a guitar for his 13th birthday he forms the Orange Organics with his friends Orfo (Jay McCormack), Bazza (Troy Beckwith) and Stringbean (Ricky Fleming).

Pugwall is the guitarist and sings as well, Orfo plays the drums, Bazza the keyboard and Stringbean is the bass guitarist but they are missing one thing- a lead singer. Then Pugwall has a bike accident, which leads to him meeting Jenny (Rebecca Blomberg) in hospital, who turns out to the singer they're looking for.

The second series was called Pugwall's Summer. I remember watching this in the summer holidays. Pugwall's Summer is more familiar to me, maybe because it was a bit later and I was older. According to it was shown in the UK from 1992 to 1994, so I would have been about 10 when Pugwall's Summer was on. It looks really dated now but if they showed it on TV now, I'd watch it again! lol.

Here's the first series opening of Pugwall:

Unexpected Girls Updates

Back in September I did a post about the American reality TV show Unexpected. You can read it here:

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;

The gossip site Starcasm also reports that Unexpected's producers are casting for a new programme:

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).



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…
