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.

I WAS BITTEN BY THE SHOW AND LOVED IT! Aug 31, 2011
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".

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.

Smart, hip, and witty Dec 12, 2012
By Steven W. Tanner
This show caught me by surprise. I thought it would be dopey, but I really loved it. The minimalist approach to the werewolf effects is a smart choice. Still a little on a cheesy-side but it could be a lot worse. The characters are perfectly casted. What I really like is the story. Most shows bore me because I can predict plot turns a mile ahead. Teen Wolf season one has some genuine suspense that caught me off guard and the story went in directions I could never have predicted. Well done.
Season two is good, but not great.

Teen Wolf is awesome! Curious about the DVD. Aug 02, 2012
By Adam T.
I dig this show a lot, and I was all set to hate it. I thought it was just going to be another bad take on Twilight, and Twilight was bad enough, but I was pleasantly suprised, when on the recommendation of a family member I sat down and watched Teen Wolf. I couldn't have been more wrong. The show is a well written show that cleverly combines action, comedy, horror, and drama, sometimes into the same scene. The cast is also really great. You usually don't find young stars like this that can actually act, but these people can. Through their performances we get to know, and care about the characters. As an avid horror fan I will say that this isn't really scary, nor is it really meant to be, but it still sinks it's claw into you and keeps you interested.
If I could throw out any criticisms it would be that most of the CGI, and fight scenes aren't the best, it's nothing that actually takes you out of it, but it's definitely not the best out there. Though I will say, Season 2 has done better on both of these fronts, I'm guessing due to a larger budget on account of it's success. I can't wait to finish season 2 and I sit impatiently for the start of season 3.
I watched all of season 1 before I actually bought the dvd, and I was curious if anyone knows: On the back it says "This series is musically edited". What does this mean? Is the music on the dvd different than the original aired verison?
If anyone can clear this up I'd appericate it, thanks.
