MTV's "TEEN WOLF" is a sexy, suspenseful drama about transformation set against the backdrop of contemporary teen life, with a forbidden, romantic love story at its core, making it a fresh and different take on the iconic movie. Always an outsider and often unnoticed, Scott McCall yearns to be recognized in some small way that takes him out of his typical state of high school anonymity. When his best friend Stiles convinces him to go into the woods one night to join a police search for a dead body, Scott encounters a creature in the darkness. Narrowly escaping an attack with a vicious bite in his side, the next day brings strange surprises for Scott at school and his life will never be the same.
Though the young adult series Teen Wolf shares its title with the slapstick 1985 werewolf comedy, the show adopts a more agreeable blend of angst-driven high school drama and supernatural chills. In doing so, it invites comparison to the Twilight franchise--lead actor Tyler Posey auditioned for the role of Jacob in the series--but its focus is more modest and grounded in real-world issues than the grander fantasy scope of its vampire kin. Posey is well cast as a young student learning to adapt to his newfound lycanthropy, which, like all maturation processes, requires some getting used to: he possesses incredible speed and strength but also a hair-trigger tendency to transform at the worst possible times. There's also a new girl (Crystal Reed) who catches his eye, a questionable ally in the form of Tyler Hoechlin's fellow teen lycanthrope, and another, more dangerous werewolf on the loose with a posse of hunters on its trail. Teen Wolf keeps all of its disparate elements in play throughout the first season's 12-episode run, and if it can be faulted for occasionally pandering to the eye-candy crowd--Posey and the rest of the male cast spend an awful lot of time shirtless, so much so that an entire supplemental feature is devoted to these moments--it can also be credited for maintaining a level of believability and honesty, especially in regard to its characters. The three-disc set presents a sizable amount of extras, including an extended version of the season finale and a number of deleted, alternate, and extended scenes. Series creator Jeff Davis and director-executive producer Russell Mulcahy (Highlander) are front and center in a making-of featurette that details the show's development, as well as commentary on select episodes, which also offer an alternate, lighter-toned track by members of the cast. The actors are also highlighted in several making-of extras, which discuss their off-camera friendships as well as the perils of kissing scenes. Footage from the red carpet premiere and an amusing gag reel round out the set. --Paul Gaita

Its hard to believe lil Tyler Posey is all grown up and paired with an amazing young cast. This show has thrown out the old plot of the original Teen Wolf Story and started fresh keeping only the lead duo Scott and Stiles names from the movies. I was shock at the dark overtone for a teen drama which out do the likes of TVD and The Originals. The violence and action is to be expected in a supernatural show based around lycan folklore and such other myth of beast of the superhuman kind.... but ohmydamn.... LOL did they deliver! I think my only issue with the plot line so far, is that of the love story so early on for the main character. Also 2 thumbs up for the integration of homosexuality romances in the show. Love the diversity cast and show!
As far as the DVDs go, its a must purchase. Season 1 is very inexpensive and comes loaded with cool extras including commentaries (yes I watch those) and featurettes. I enjoyed the DVD mocking the overly shirtless male leads in a special feature that highlight all the great shirtless moments. Another great thing about this show is its open acceptance of homosexuality and its embrace to a gay male character that is best friends of team captain Jackson. The show keeps up with the general beat of continuing acceptance of gay individuals and (though might be unrealistic) really respects the subject and has moments of fun with it. If you love this show, this DVD is a must have for your collection. Give the show a chance, if you are like me I know you will be reluctant, but I guarantee a few of you will end up loving it like I did.
