The Boy Who Cried Wolf--MTV Combines Humor, Thrills, And Romance In This Unlikely Charmer Aug 05, 2011
By K. Harris
When I heard that MTV had plans to update the cheesy eighties movie "Teen Wolf" into a modern serialized drama, I can't say that I was filled with optimism. As the network was trying to establish a successful slate of scripted programming, however, a sexy and suspenseful werewolf thriller made sense. I just didn't know if MTV could get the right creative force to put the project together in an interesting way and utilize the budget and effects necessary to make it stand apart from the supernatural crowd. I think it's fair to say that this is more of a complete reinvention of the source film as opposed to any sort of remake. Aside from sharing an overlapping central theme, the two projects couldn't be more dissimilar. But utilizing the same sensibilities that have made "Vampire Diaries" a success, this wolf saga is an intoxicating blend of humor, romance, and chills. Starting as more of a frothy comedy, the series gradually incorporated darker elements as the narrative unfolded until you were sometimes surprised just how effective the thriller aspect was working.
I used "Vampire Diaries" as a specific reference point, because I also think that "Teen Wolf" has all the qualities needed to become a break-out hit. It is a show that would certainly be appreciated by people that don't watch MTV. "Vampire Diaries" on CW had an uneven (but likable) first season, but turned into a surprisingly sophisticated soap opera for a stellar second season. "Wolf," similarly, has the potential to evolve further into a smart and multi-layered entertainment. The twelve episodes of Season One, by necessity, focused on two major plot points--a boy who becomes a wolf and the search for his maker. In the show, Tyler Posey plays the central character. As he starts to understand what is happening, the scripts deftly blends comedy, confusion, and awe as he gets an unlikely tutor in the form of a more serious wolfman played by Tyler Hoechlin. The early episodes exhibit plenty of charm as Posey relishes his new school status and blossoming romance. As the show progresses, the sense of danger becomes a primary ingredient. I wasn't crazy about every aspect that helped bring the Alpha story line to fruition. The central mystery, when it was finally revealed, lacked a bit of surprise or impact for me. But it was a small point in an otherwise engaging season.
While the entire cast is attractive and effective, I've got to throw out props to Posey. Of course, only in TV land would Posey be considered a loser. Adorable smile, killer physique, and all around charming demeanor--the show brands him a geek initially for the apparent reason that he is an asthmatic (inhalers are so unsexy). He juggles the complexities of his role with dexterity and is always a winning protagonist--it is easy to be invested in his plight and emotional journey. As his wacky sidekick, Dylan O'Brien also gets a special shout-out from me. Why? He portrays the biggest cliche' possible as Posey's wise-cracking best friend and still makes it seem effortless and new. I really enjoyed this show. Fast and stylish, with an appropriately impressive MTV soundtrack, this is sheer entertainment. It doesn't have lofty goals--it just wants to give you a fun ride. And that it does. KGHarris, 8/11.

What, no Blu-Ray? Seriously? Jun 03, 2012
By Wesly Moore
I like this show so much that it surprises, no, astonishes me.
Now I am surprised, no, astonished at the absence of a Blu-Ray release.
What gives? This is a hit show for MTV. We know the high-def masters exist. I watched it on MTV-HD. I can get HD digital downloads from Amazon.
Seriously, if you missed this show when it first showed, give it a try. I haven't been this surprised by horror on TV since Spike's "Blade." It seems that "Teen Wolf" is finding an audience, so hopefully it will fare better.

I WAS BITTEN BY THE SHOW AND LOVED IT! Aug 31, 2011
By Lewis M. Greenberg
"ancient art prof"
I have never watched MTV but the advance notices on this show piqued my interest. I was hooked from Day 1. Some of the actors were already familiar from other shows (e.g. Colton Haynes from THE GATES - who played a werewolf there; Ian Bohen from earlier British work, etc.). The show is much more than just "boy gets bitten by werewolf" and "boy becomes werewolf". It's also a mystery as to who has done the "original biting" and who is the "Alpha Wolf". There are werewolf hunters with their own personalities and conflicts; there is depth to the characters; there is plenty of eye candy; great cliff hangers. Haynes, in particular, evolves as an interesting and conflicted character; the central character (Posey) is in love with a member of the werewolf hunters' family; a mysterious veterinarian and a hospitalized young lady who was also werewolf attacked add to the mix along with the new putative "Alpha" werewolf. This show was far better than most of those on the higher rung of network and cable TV. Can't wait for Season 2 and the DVD. An excellent "guilty pleasure".

The beast inside Feb 15, 2012
By E. A Solinas
Urban fantasy series are currently undergoing a boom -- anything with vampires, werewolves and the like has an automatic audience.
Enter "Teen Wolf," which seems to be the lycanthropic counterpart to the "Vampire Diaries" -- lots of attractive teenage characters, secrets, violence, supernatural mysteries and some high-school romance. While the main character's werewolf form is incredibly unscary, the rest of the series is quite strong -- even if it does seem to use lycanthropy as a metaphor for puberty.
Weedy teenager Scott McCall (Tyler Posey) and his nerdy buddy Stiles (Dylan O'Brien) are prowling through a woods where a murder has recently occurred, and a large furry animal bites Scott. The following day, he finds that he's gained incredible senses, healing and agility -- which allows him to become the new star of the lacrosse team.
Stiles claims Scott is a werewolf, but Scott ignores him... until he starts transforming in the middle of a date with a new girl in town, Allison (Crystal Reed). Another werewolf, Derek Hale (Tyler Hoechlin) takes Scott under his wing to educate him about how to control his lycanthropic urges, since anything that raises his heart rate can transform him at a moment's notice.
Even worse: there are an ancient family of werewolf hunters in the area, and it turns out that Allison's dad and sadistic aunt are among them. Also, jock Jackson (Colton Haynes) is sniffing out Scott's secret.
But Scott's high school woes soon become the least of his troubles. He was turned into a werewolf by an alpha -- a savage, bloodthirsty creature who is killing more people around the town. And somehow this rampage is connected to a fire that killed Derek's entire family several years ago. And if Scott doesn't join the alpha, the lives of everyone he loves will be endangered...
"Teen Wolf" hits a solid balance of teen romance, dark action, gore, horror and dry comedy. It's hard to get all those elements in the right proportions, but for the most part the series gets it right. The only problem is that a few episodes are a little too heavy on the teen soap opera romance (oh noes! Scott is making out with Jackson's girlfriend whom Stiles is also crushing on! ANGST! DRAMA!).
But when the focus is on the werewolf stuff, "Teen Wolf" shines -- there's lots of growling, misty woods, and bloody violence, and the writers throw some curveballs at the audience (just who/what IS that vet?!). There's also an atmosphere of growing tension and darkness, which grows stronger as the season unfolds. Fortunately, the writers know how to leaven the story with plenty of humor, usually from Stiles ("What did I sound like to you?" "Like a cat being choked to death").
The special effects are a little dodgy. Some of them (like the alpha werewolf form) are decent, but the CGI werewolf maws are sometimes goofy-looking -- and the beta werewolf form is not scary AT ALL.
The cast is pretty uniformly solid -- even seemingly-cliched characters like Lydia (the Queen Bee/Mean Girl), Chris Argent (Allison's scary werewolf-hunter dad) and Jackson (the arrogant jock who desperately wants to be a werewolf) are well-rounded, with excellent reasons for them to act and feel as they do. Posey, Hoechlin and O'Brien make a solid central trio as the earnest good boy, the tall-dark-and-brooding bad boy, and the nerdy sidekick respectively, and they all have excellent chemistry.
"Teen Wolf" has a few freshman wobbles, but overall it's a sleek, eerie story that balances action, romance and horror in equal measure. And it leaves you hungry for whatever is coming next for the teen wolf.

By D. Davis
Didn't think I would be as into this series as I am but I'm hooked. This is the perfect blend of romance, action, and suspense.
