Scott's a non-athletic, socially awkward high school sophomore...but a single wolf bite changes everything. Now he's the popular star of his lacrosse team and dating the new girl in town. But Scott's "new" abilities also pull him into the middle of a war between werewolves and werewolf hunters.

I first started watching as I'd run out of stuff to watch on Netflix and this is free with Prime. The title itself 'Teen Wolf' kept me away for a while as I expected it to be like the 'Twilight' variety. I was pleasantly surprised, and before I knew it, I was binge watching all the seasons. The plot is tight, the casting is awesome, and I love the pace of the show. The special effects are great as well, no cheap CGI here. Tyler Posey does a great job playing the lead character and his sidekick Dylan O Brien is adorable and funny. I also love the Lacrosse team coach, who is caught unawares amongst all the fighting between these supernatural creatures; great for some light-hearted comedy, especially after the show takes on a more serious/dark turn after season 2. Lydia's character irritated me briefly, her constant pout and her 'I'm too cool' attitude put me off. Watching got much easier once she discovered her true powers. I tried watching the Vampire Diaries and eventually stopped watching after season 4 as I got fed up with the Elena/Damon/Stefan love triangle and felt the plot was tedious, with a tad too much teen angst thrown in. But, I will be looking out for Season 6 of Teen Wolf. Try it if you've been considering it as well, you just might love it too.
This show is woefully episodic and that comes across like a disconcerting accident rather than a meaningful artistic choice.
And I've gotten all the way to the end of whole first season with the feeling that that premise still remains unexplainable.
The dialogue is downright bad more often than not.
Yet I'm giving it four stars because it somehow manages to be a good show in spite of all that.
For one thing, the central theme of lycanthropy is attractive. It's not just about the visual motif being pretty either - it's more that they really do get across a sense of the wild magic and mystery in it.
Another big positive is that the star seems like a good actor and his character, his best friend and his girlfriend are especially sympathetic.
The show's insight into the primitive young male experience it depicts is really where it shines. And it ultimately has an optimistic feel as far as human character is concerned despite delving into some pretty dark episodes. So all in all, I vouch for this show as one of the best I've seen in a long time.
this is my guilty pleasure. my reason for making it past Mondays. I own all of the seasons released to dvd and watch them periodically.
it's cheesy sometimes but it's an mtv drama madeforteensso you gotta be ready to accept that . The plot is pretty decent for a Supernatural scifi drama and the character development is great and so subtle and natural that it is only when you do a re watch that you see how the characters have grown and evolved.
Teen Wolf season 1 lays out a foundation of characters of all ages in a small town but it's not your usual township as it has ware wolfs. It's a great program of action, decisions & outcomes. It's always evolving & changing, showing even that mystical life creatures encounter the same issues & problems that humans daily face. Following the characters is challenging as you are constantly guessing whom is what & are they the good ones or the bad ones. New characters are always being introduced as well as new kinds of mystical creatures which offers plenty of action as well as keeping the excitement level high. Choices made offer consequences & how it affects each other, friends & their family. There is the routine of being in high school & finding your place in the world & the older adult characters balance jobs, family & living. Presently I am on season 3 but I got hooked in Season 1 watching it. It's fun, relaxing, action packed & a great escape into another world.
I watched this since it was free on Amazon Prime and at first Tyler Posey's character as Scott drove me crazy as an immature and annoying teenager, who did those things that make you wince as the audience. But with the help of the handsome Derek Hale played by Tyler Hoechlin I made it enough episode in to finally start to like the younger cast members. By the end, I found its treatment it had some inner depth including its sympathetic use of Homosexual character and themes as real life and not a gimmick, the struggles of a single mom, and some true friendships among characters. A show that improved into a better season 2.
I have a blu-ray player that I thought was region adjustable but found out that when set for Region B, the subtitles were permanent when playing even when set for English language. Video quality was great. I only wish they just made all blu-ray players region free. It would make it so much better for customers anywhere in the world and the manufacturer so they wouldn't run out of supply in one particular region. With such a popular show, only Region B or C was available and never for the USA...very disappointed.

This series has the potential to be it's generation's Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The supporting cast actually far exceeds the main character as we often sing 'scotty doesn't know'. This also has the single best handling of LGBT issues I have seen in television. Smart, scary, arc driven. There is a bit of silliness in the practical effects and how the werewolves run but all in all an intriguing series. (Worthing through season 4 already, purchase the whole series)

I know, when one thinks teen wolf they think 1980's and weird special effects, but give this show a chance and you wont be dissapointed.
it is a modern take on the saga and amazing campness that was the 1980s epic. The actors and actressess are all incredibly beautiful and that doesnt hurt ;) but the writing and the acting is superb and i find that its also incredibly funny.
the character of stiles is perhaps my faveourite, and its because he gets some of the best lines, so regardless of age and preference i think you should all give it a chance, maybe youtube a clip or two but definately buy it and support the cause and help ensure the longevity of one of the best things that MTV has produced in a while...
so do yourself a favour and get this dvd, watch this show and support the cause that is teen wolf
Loving this series im so hooked on the storyline and the wonderful acting of tyler posey who plays Scott McCall the fated teen wolf. Styles is his friend and confidante until the ALPHA Derek who bit scott reveals he was the wolf who changed his normal life to become one of his pack and along with scott,s girlfriend Allyson the team unite against her father who is a hunter and intends to rid the town of the evil in his eyes that live within it. This first series has many twists and turns but the storyline itself holds you too the screen and once one episode finishes straight onto next to see what happens as each one is edge of the seat viewing. Buy and enjoy series two is now out also and just as breath holding as the first.

It's so great to finally have that show on DVD, not just because it is great show but because most episodes end on a cliffhanger and it was maddening to have to wait a week for the next one. Now you don't have to! For those who don't know it, it is a surprisingly good teen show about a teenage boy who becomes a werewolf by mistake and finds his life - and his friends' - transformed by it. It's got great actors, suspence, good action scenes and great dialog.

This is aimed at teenagers and young adalts which I am not but I love all the supernatural stuff and the teen dramas. Based on the 80's movie teen wolf, this a about a teenager that gets bitten by a werewolf and how he copes with school and teenage life being a werewolf. Funny, Scary and compelling with brilliant special effects.
