In a world where MTV puts out tons of totally crap programming, has anyone bothered to watch this supposedly "Darker" Teen Wolf?

Based only on a commercial that I saw at a movie theater, I guarantee that this version of Teen Wolf will be much funnier and better than the movie. Of course, topping the original is not a hard accomplishment.

I found this show by accident last night, and I was trying to figure out who the star was. Then it hit me--Maid in Manhattan!!! He was Jennifer Lopez's son. I hadn't seen him since 2002. I don't think this show is like the movie at all. I didn't really like the movie, and I think the show is a lot better. Last night was the first time in years that I actually watched MTV. I really do hate that channel. But the show looks pretty good--I'll watch it next week.

I don't know about funnier. It seems to be a lot like The Vampire Diaries in tone. Surprisingly it is not bad

I watched the first two episodes.  Like MatCR said, sort of like Vampire Diaries in tone.  Not a comedy and not like the movie.  The hero has powers even when not in "vampire mode."  Hearing, smell, better speed/coordination.  But excess emotion (ala The Hulk) can cause him to turn or start to turn.  I'll keep watching.

I know it's not a comedy, I was just taking a cheap shot at the movie (it's terribly unfunny) and the TV series (which looks like an unintentional comedy).

It really wasn't that bad.  I've only seen the first episode so far.  It's kind of in the Smallville "learning about my powers" mode at first.  And, is that Martouf as the hunter/Allison's dad (rhetorical question; haven't seen the dude in a while).


I'm not a big Jeph Loeb fan, but I honestly don't mind the original movie.  It is hard to believe Fox would have taken the role after Back to the Future, but since they were released the same year, I guess he didn't.  Certainly not great, but I can watch it when I find it on cable.

Yeah, on the Back To The Future disc, he says how they were shooting at a location for Teen Wolf and BTTF was shooting up the street (when Eric Stoltz was still the lead) and he was thinking that the was the type of movie he wished he was in.

The biggest problem I have with the show is that MTV reruns it about five times a day, and the idiotic Comcast DVR wants to record them all.  All except the first airing, which it thought was a rerun.

It's a bit silly, but way better then expected.

I caught the first two episodes on FiOS on demand last night. It wasn't terrible but it was very paint by numbers. We've seen all of these pieces in roughly this configuration before.

Stick with it, it gets . . . well, it really stays about the same! Heh. The kid playing Stiles has been in nothing, but he strongly reminds me of someone and I can't put my finger on it.

If they shook things up and revealed that the girl that the main character is stalking is actually secretly a werewolf herself, that would get me interested. Otherwise, it's the Clark/Lana storyline from "Smallville" -- if Clark was way creepier about it.

This was renewed for a second season. I'm glad, because I actually look forward to it every week now. Monday's was pretty nutty. The jock dude was looking like death warmed over last time we saw him, but he was back to normal again. I guess it was kind of shown why, since the alpha made him sick again. I guess it's a mental connection thing. Also, they were pretty aware that a big beast was chasing them, but they don't even mention it. "It must be Derek!" Oh, well. They're passing the alpha off as the vet, but I'm calling the science teacher right now. Not like it's a big brainstorm, as they've left clues about it.

Yeah, I agree, the teacher... It's mediocre, but it's got enough to keep me interested. The chick werewolf hunter is so smoking hot too, that helps!!!!

Well, this show changed pretty rapidly. Everything's pretty much out in the open now. I'm not sure how I feel about Allison being clued in to every single thing, but it's carved in stone that she isn't her aunt. They may make it appear that way at first, since she's feeling betrayed and confused, but she won't join the hunt for Scott. It might not have seemed like an option before, but Scott pretty much has to tell his mom everything now. How do you keep her from dating a psychopath alpha? Tell her he turned you and then show her. I guess next week is the finale, and finally an extended end to my TV watching year. I've had it pretty good since last fall, with Jeopardy lasting until the end of July and a pretty large number of summer shows. Now, the boredom sets in until the fall season starts up.

Funny thing, is that this show did not register on my radar until I saw an ad for it, while traveling in Europe. I decided to check it out, and surprisingly, I find it enjoyable and addictive. Hard to believe that, considering the name of the show and the fact that it's on MTV, a network that I have not watched since the days of Beavis & Butt-Head.


I did wonder if the name of the show would hold it back, but from the fact that it got a 2nd season, it didn't. Except for a few things, this show is really different from the movie (which I never seen in its entirety) or the cartoon series (which I did watch).


About 5 episodes in, and the tough part is trying to limit 1 episode per day. I do wonder about Jackson, and how his wounds (caused by Derek's claws) did not heal right away. I assume it will be answered in a later episode.


ETA - And I did not read the latter half of this thread to not be spoiled.

After missing most of the first season, I decided to catch the premiere last night after the MTV Movie Awards since it's slim pickings during the summer. During the first half I was convinced I was watching a softcore porn flick from late night Cinemax. It went from a mostly naked guy exploding out of a lake to two teenagers wrapped around each other on (and around) a bed to a naked chick taking a shower.
