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”

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 »

Exclusive Interview: TEEN WOLF producer Jeff Davis transforms the 1980s film into MTV’s new horror series – Part 2

TEEN WOLF - S1 - Posey

MTV’s new genre series TEEN WOLF is inspired by the 1980s Michael J. Fox comedy where he transformed into a teenage werewolf. While the transformation is still there, the story itself is much more serious and echoes such series as BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES in terms of teen angst mixed with horror. Tyler Posey plays Scott McCall who must deal with the after-effects of getting bit by a werewolf and how to affects his relationships with his friends, family and school mates. In Part 2 of our exclusive interview with executive producer Jeff Davis, we learn […]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 »

Exclusive Interview: Jeff Davis gets bitten by MTV’s TEEN WOLF – Part 1

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

When CRIMINAL MINDS creator Jeff Davis was approached by MTV to reboot the 1980s comedy TEEN WOLF, he was a bit hesitant until he found out they wanted something more along the lines of the BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER TV series than a sitcom with a laugh track. “MTV was always pushing us to go edgier,” Davis admits. “They gave us a mandate, that the writers turned into the three words we live by – Sexy, Scary and surprising. For us that meant plenty of twists and turns, lots of romance, a little bit of humor and plenty of scares. […]Read On »

Fresh Clip: First look at MTV’s TEEN WOLF trailer (and poster)

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

While The CW has made its mark with SUPERNATURAL and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and found great success with their genre-bending formulas, they really haven’t proven to be the heir to the BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER teen angst throne that Joss Whedon created so expertly on that landmark series. Well, there’s a good chance MTV’s TEEN WOLF could be the heir apparent. Based on the the horrendous (but cult) 1985 film starring Michael J. Fox, the new genre series owes more to BUFFY than that silly retro comedy. Tyler Posey is Scott McCall, an average high school student who is bitten […]Read On »
