Scream 1.5 Review: “Exposed”

What an episode!  The two least likable characters (Will and super-douche Jake) are blackmailing Brooke’s dad, who appears to have killed someone (maybe Brooke’s mom).  The new sheriff isn’t the sheriff anymore because his ex-girlfriend (and old drinking buddy) came in [...]
