Secretary of State John Kerry Fined $50 For Not Shoveling His Sidewalk
Sorry, Mr. Secretary, but the king's funeral is no excuse. Secretary of State John Kerry was in Saudi Arabia with President Obama and the First Lady to attend the funeral of King Abdullah when winter storm Juno dumped about two feet of snow outside Kerry's brownstone back home in Boston. The white stuff sat in a pristine pile on his Beacon Hill sidewalk for two days. After Kerry was "snow shamed" by a camera-wielding Bostonian posting a citizen complaint online, the city slapped Kerry with a $50 fine on Thursday morning. By Thursday evening, the sidewalks were clear. "Diplomats - they're just like us.

Teen Wolf Review: “A Promise To The Dead” (Season 4, Episode 11)

Teen Wolf managed to squeeze a first date into the penultimate episode between run-ins with the berserkers, which added a little teen normalcy to the pending doom, but they had a little trouble making it through the evening at that pace.

Although Scott (Tyler Posey) and Kira (Arden Cho) skipped right past dinner and a movie (Star Wars, selected personally by Stiles), and opted for a more risque activity, their intimate evening is cut short when Kate (Jill Wagner) and her supernatural bodyguard crash the party. It looks like these two aren’t cut out for a “normal” relationship after all, and somehow that shouldn’t come as any real surprise to regular viewers of the show.

Peter’s (Ian Bohen) plan to take Scott out of the equation is almost a success story, until Kate decides to insert her own agenda in the master plan. Instead of taking him out in the loft,

Teen Wolf Season 4 Episode 8 Recap: Who Are The Martins?

Last night’s Teen Wolf began with Scott and Stiles going to Kira and Liam with a plan to keep Beacon Hill’s death rate down. Since the Benefactor needs visual proof in order to give payment for the killings, the plan is to make the Benefactor come to them to get it. In other words, Scott will have Kira shock him into a coma-like sleep that makes him appear to be dead. He’s rushed into the hospital and pronounced dead. Mom Melissa puts on an Oscar-worthy performance as a grieving Mom! Turns out she was in on the plan, but the … Continue reading →

“Teen Wolf” 4.03: A Fine Young Cannibal

Scott and Stiles must fight for their places on the lacrosse team. Meanwhile, people die horribly.

Previously on Teen Wolf…. The much beloved Sour Wolf was turned into a totes adorable Twink Wolf for reasons no sane human being could possibly understand. The Hales were revealed as one-percenters just before they were totally robbed by a Mysterious Person. Berzerkers showed up and hurt Scott’s feelings so bad he couldn’t get up and so Twink Wolf had to kick their asses for him, which turned him back into Sour Wolf, only now with golden wolfy eyes. And your recapper couldn’t keep his Nakimuras and Yukimuras straight even with IMDb there to help out.

We start off with another one of Beacon Hill’s budding underwear models outside his house looking for his kitty. He really pulls out all the stops in his search too. He looks left and

‘Teen Wolf’ Recap: Stiles Discovers A Dark Secret About Himself

Plus: The power’s out in Beacon Hills, but that didn’t stop the gang from saving the day — and letting their hormones run wild!

When Derek’s (Tyler Hoechlin) away, the pack will play! On the Jan. 27 episode of Teen Wolf, a black-light rave at Derek’s abandoned loft seemed like the perfect way for everyone to blow off some steam — that is, until a few spooky-faced party crashers decided to spoil the fun.

Beacon Hills Ink

It all began when Lydia (Holland Roden) overheard the uninvited guests lurking in the shadows — she’s a banshee, remember? — then quickly fell victim to their wicked tattoo’d ways. In fact, several characters found themselves with a mysterious backwards “5″ behind their ear, but they didn’t exactly have time to decipher what that meant before a nasty fight ensued.

Alicia Minshew Talks Playing A Lesbian On Web Series ‘Beacon Hill’

Plus, the former ‘All My Children’ star shows HollywoodLife.com how to twerk!

During her tenure as Kendall Hart on ABC’s All My Children, Alicia Minshew was a busy girl. Faking pregnancies, facing murder charges and stealing grooms were all in a day’s work for the on-screen daughter of Susan Lucci‘s Erica Kane. But twerking? That was never one of Alicia’s many on-screen endeavours — until now.

Alicia recently paid a visit to HollywoodLife.com‘s New York office, and yes, we asked her if she knew how to twerk. But in our defense, this interview was conducted right after Miley Cyrus‘ Vma debacle — and, honestly, Alicia didn’t need much convincing.

It’s that kind of bold energy that made Alicia a fan-favorite for more than a decade on daytime, and now she’s directing that energy at a few really exciting projects. Along with 2013′s Desires of the Heart,

Teen Wolf Review: “Unleashed” (Season 3, Episode 4)

In its first two seasons Teen Wolf pulled off some pretty spectacular storylines, and now we are finally getting a taste of what the show can do with twice as many episodes and half the rush.

There were some great moments on this episode of Teen Wolf, starting with a teacher that obviously hasn’t learned her lesson. Last week we saw Beacon Hill’s newest English teacher, Miss Blake (Haley Webb), find herself in a very wrong place at a very wrong time. Fortunately for her, she came out of it physically unharmed and with a real-life tragic hero to boot. And I’ll just go ahead and say what so many viewers were thinking, Derek Hale (Tyler Hoechlin) can save me anytime!

The ominous music and preposterous empty hallway 20 minutes before school starts aside, Miss Blake and Derek’s face time was actually pretty sweet. If these two

Dexter Going into the final season of the Showtime thriller, the secrets about what’s coming on the Dexter Season 8 are bigger than ever – but how do newer actors on the show deal with so much secrecy about their own characters?

Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints) recurs this summer as Jacob Elroy and says that he’s had to deal with being in the dark about some things in regard to his character: “I think everybody wants to know a little bit more,” he told me earlier this week. “It’s difficult to design a character when you

‘Teen Wolf’s’ Haynes lands on ‘Arrow’ while ‘Horizon’ lands at USA and ‘Weird’ gets shelved

  • doorQ.com
We all know season one of MTV’s Teen Wolf was much better than season two. Part of the problem was there seemed no clear direction for the characters anymore. All the best parts that made the show so much better in season one, the relationships between Scott and Stiles, Derek and Stiles, Stiles and his dad, Scott and Allison, Stiles and Lydia, Scott and his Mom were pushed to the side lines in favor of a muddle mythology that you knew how was going to end when former Battlestar Galactica actor Michael Hogan arrived in episode one. You knew from the start that he was a prick and unredeemable so it made his mustache twirling more annoying than you would expect.

I also had issues with actress Eaddy Mays, who played Allison’s un-approving Mom. She was so cold, such a stereotype of a frigid woman –though Scott’s

Marvin Hamlisch, Oscar-Winning Film Composer, Dies At Age 68

A moment of silence seems inappropriate for the great film composer Marvin Hamlisch, who passed away in Los Angeles at the age of 68. The three-time Oscar winner contributed so many memorable scores to such beloved Hollywood features as Ice Castles, The Sting, The Way We Were and A Chorus Line that it seems more appropriate to play one of his soundtracks in honor of his dominant spirit. Very few details were made available regarding Hamlisch.s death, which was reported on People.com early Tuesday morning. The site confirms that the composer suffered .a brief illness. but didn.t confirm the cause of Hamlisch.s death. So instead, let.s celebrate his life. Known by many as .the people.s composer,.

Tonight on Teen Wolf: The New (Gila-Lizard) Monster Strikes Again. And Again. And Again...

Tonight on Teen Wolf: The New (Gila-Lizard) Monster Strikes Again. And Again. And Again...

With Derek recruiting werewolves quicker than a girl procreating life for a spot on Teen Mom, Scott has a lot to worry about on Teen Wolf. But with a new creature in town hacking up people left and right, Scott might will have to put his differences with Derek aside to battle the new threat in Beacon Hills.

Tonight, the Gila-Lizard Monster (Tvo's name for the new beast until a new one comes along) is front and center, gripping the entire town of Beacon Hill in fear. Especially the Hunters, who are clearly (at least to our knowledge) not ready to handle this new situation in front of them and will possibly blame the attacks on the werewolves in the area. But one thing is for sure from the trailer for tonight's episode: the creature

Teen Wolf: The End is Nigh... Comic Con Final Four Episodes Trailer

Chills. Chills I tell ya...

This weekend at Comic Con, MTV released a trailer for the final four episodes of its hit new drama Teen Wolf and if you haven't seen it yet, then boy are you in for a treat.

The storyline ramps up as Allison will get closer and closer to her destiny as a werewolf slayer, the Argents will get even more menacing (i.e., Mama Argent), Stiles will be in deep you-know-what with the Hunters, and Scott? Well saying that his life gets even more complicated is the understatement of the century.

Seems like that death of a regular character is coming pretty soon as well, and it might be the catalyst to push people even further towards their fated positions, but will these teens of Beacon Hills fight fate or let it consume them whole?
