I resisted watching teen wolf at first.
I’m not really sure why but I think it had to do with the bad trailers I saw when it was being advertised and the feeling it was going to be a hokey MTV love story.
So I was quite surprised when a friend was like, I need your TV last Monday night, a new episode of “Teen Wolf” is on. I sat there and watched episode 6 and was pleasantly surprised. So much so that I had to buy the season pass on iTunes.
It starts out a bit goofy with two teenage boys deciding they are going to go look for the half of a body that Stiles’ dad had been called out to look for (he’s the sheriff).
But crazy as it may seem, the interaction between Stiles and Scott is so believable and well played it cancels out the logical questions that tend to pop up in your mind.
The friendship between the two comes as genuine and real. Stiles is the crazy
smart ass friend we all wish we had. In many ways he steals every scene he’s in. Great acting, and great casting.
Crystal Reed’s portrayal of Allison is spot on as well. She comes across as the sweet girl next door with heart aching perfection.
With these three cast as the leads, I’m looking forward to watching the rest of the series. I went from a “Not even going to watch it” to I bought the series and am looking forward to sitting on my couch and watching the rest of them.
