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.
