What it accomplishes on a weekly basis is phenomenal. From how it creates likable characters and dialogue that isn’t too meta and not too jokey to how the look of the show, courtesy of Director of Photography  […]Read On »

TV Review: TEEN WOLF – Season 1 – “Night School”

Stars: Tyler Posey, Crystal Reed, Dylan O’Brien, Tyler Hoechlin, Holland Roden, Colton Haynes, Linden Ashby, JR Bourne Writer: Jeff Vlaming Director: Tim Andrew Network: MTV, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: July 12, 2011 Now this is more like it. TEEN WOLF, after splashing around in the teen angst drama pool for awhile, has started to get its scary on. In “Night School,” the show goes for its most horror movie-like episode yet, with lots of good atmospheric tension and upping the stakes for our beleaguered, newly lycanthropic hero Scott (Tyler Posey). Beginning the instant the previous episode, “Heart Monitor,” ended, […]Read On »

TV Review: TEEN WOLF – Season 1 – “Heart Monitor”

Tyler Posey and Tyler Hoechlin in TEEN WOLF - Season 1 - "Heart Monitor" | ©2011 MTV

Stars: Tyler Posey, Crystal Reed, Dylan O’Brien, Tyler Hoechlin, Holland Roden, Colton Haynes, Linden Ashby, JR Bourne Writer: Daniel Sinclair Director: Toby Wilkins Network: MTV, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: July 4, 2011 It’s clear that “Heart Monitor”, the latest episode of MTV’s great new genre series TEEN WOLF is just the set-up for some major badass-ness going into next week. And it’s about time. With the full moon on the horizon, and the Alpha Wolf wanting Scott (Tyler Posey) to become part of his pack, time is of essence for Scott to understand and control being a werewolf. On […]Read On »

TV Review: TEEN WOLF – Season 1 – “The Tell”

Holland Roden in TEEN WOLF - Season 1 | ©2011 MTV

Stars: Tyler Posey, Crystal Reed, Dylan O’Brien, Tyler Hoechlin, Holland Roden, Colton Haynes, Linden Ashby, JR Bourne Writer: Monica Macer Director: Toby Wilkins Network: MTV, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: June 27, 2011 I really hope MTV knows what it has with its new series TEEN WOLF. Each week, the show continually gets better and better with the characters getting more clearly defined and the horror ratcheting up. This is one of the best series it’s ever had on its network, and I hope it doesn’t get messed up any time soon (hey kids, here’s the new TEEN WOLF MOM […]Read On »

TV Review: TEEN WOLF – Season 1 – “Magic Bullet”

Tyler Hoechlin in TEEN WOLF - Season 1 | ©2011 MTV

Stars: Tyler Posey, Crystal Reed, Dylan O’Brien, Tyler Hoechlin, Holland Roden, Colton Haynes, Linden Ashby, JR Bourne Writer: Daniel Sinclair Director: Toby Wilkins Network: MTV, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: June 20, 2011 Only four episodes in and TEEN WOLF is leaving you wanting to more, which is a good thing since the latest episode “Magic Bullet” is heavy on establishing additional back story on the Argent family as a group of ruthless werewolf Hunters (but Hunters with a code). It also throws in some weird mumbo jumbo on a magic bullet (not a silver bullet, a magic bullet) that […]Read On »

TV Review: TEEN WOLF – Season 1 – “Pack Mentality”

Crystal Bryant in TEEN WOLF - Season 1 | ©2011 MTV

Stars: Tyler Posey, Crystal Reed, Dylan O’Brien, Tyler Hoechlin, Holland Roden, Colton Haynes, Linden Ashby, JR Bourne Writer: Jeff Flaming Director: Russell Mulcahy Network: MTV, Mondays @ 10 PM Airdate: June 13, 2011 The TEEN WOLF episode “Pack Mentality” has a good enough plot for us to forgive some of its shortcomings. The tension and romance is good, the makeup effects are less so, and there is a werewolf-on-werewolf fight that indicates a serious lack of imagination, albeit broadcast standards may have created some issues. The episode kicks off with Scott (Tyler Posey) having a terrifyingly vivid dream in which […]Read On »

TV Review: TEEN WOLF – Season 1 – “Second Chance at First Line”

Tyler Posey in TEEN WOLF - Season 1 | ©2011 MTV

Stars: Tyler Posey, Crystal Reed, Dylan O’Brien, Tyler Hoechlin, Holland Roden, Colton Haynes, Linden Ashby, JR Bourne Writer: Jeff Davis Director: Russell Mulcahy Network: MTV, airs Monday nights Airdate: June 6, 2011 TEEN WOLF has a lot of promise and Tyler Posey as the title character has a lot of charisma, plus great chemistry with Dylan O’Brien as his best bud Stiles, but here’s hoping that the show’s plotting gets a little more original than the “A” storyline in “Second Chance at First Line.” Scott (Posey) and Stiles have figured out that Scott’s lycanthropy isn’t triggered just by the full […]Read On »

TV Review: TEEN WOLF – Season 1 – “Wolf Moon”

Holland Roden, Colton Haynes, Dylan O’Brien, Crystal Reed, Tyler Posey and Tyler Hoechlin in TEEN WOLF - Season 1|©2011 MTV

Stars: Tyler Posey, Crystal Reed, Dylan O’Brien, Tyler Hoechlin, Holland Roden, Colton Haynes, Linden Ashby, JR Bourne Writer: Jeff Davis Director: Russell Mulcahy Network: MTV, airs Monday nights Airdate: June 5, 2011 Whether you found 1985’s feature film TEEN WOLF, starring Michael J. Fox in makeup that looked more simian than lupine when he wolfed out, adorable or incredibly annoying, just forget the whole thing when it comes to MTV’s TEEN WOLF. The two share a title, the basic concept of a teenaged male werewolf and presumably a lot of legal agreements. That’s it. MTV’s TEEN WOLF fits somewhere in […]Read On »
