The Futon Critic’s first look at MTV’s “Teen Wolf” re-imagining

A. Quinton — Jul. 15th 2010

TV review site The Futon Critic has got a very thorough review of the pilot of MTV’s “Teen Wolf” series. It begins with a very polite request not to repost any of the text anywhere, which I would normally be disinclined to honour since this is the Internet, but I’m trying to be better about that, so I recommend you go check it out for yourself. My take on the pilot, based on what I read? I was hopeful until I saw this:

I’m less sold on the show’s (albeit unfinished) special effects, which make its werewolves look like the vampires from “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”

Oops! Guess I fell off that wagon pretty quickly!

    The whole “let’s go poke around in the woods for a while since the cops are out looking for stuff” idea seems kind of lame to me. I kind of prefer the way it goes down in the Teen Wolf movie where the father is sort of like “Um, yeah…so I should probably tell you about all this”.

  • Ryan

    Well, what little hope I had for this show pretty much just flew out the window.

  • Roukas

    Are vampires really popular to the point where creatures on the opposite side of the spectrum from vampires have to be portrayed like vampires? Someone needs to do a study linking the adoration of vampires to frivolous and brooding naïveté, because the evidence is piling up by the truckload.

    Cliche, cliche, cliche, cliche.

    Welcome to the 5$-werewolf-mask party!!!
    Why did we expect something different?

    The werewolf in BTVS before or AFTER ‘Phases’? Cause Oz-wolf in that episode didn’t look bad. After though it was lame…
