Teen Wolf
 
It's a show from MTV, a spinoff from the 80s comedy film of the same title.

Scott attempts to maintain a normal life, keeping the fact of his being a werewolf secret from everyone, with the exception of his best friend "Stiles" Stilinski (Dylan O'Brien), who helps him through the changes in his life and body, and another mysterious werewolf, Derek Hale (Tyler Hoechlin).

I wouldn't deny that it's riding the coattails of Twilight's success in teen horror erotica or whatever, but for me it's a pretty fun show to watch, especially when taken for what it is. The show is not full of depth, and there are a _ton_ of continuity errors and random smut scenes (like in True Blood) but the characters have a great dynamic and are easily relatable. It also helps that most of them are easy on the eyes. :py01:

Plot is werewolves, fandom is Sterek.

The show doesn't have much of a plot, but omg so many hot people on one show.

I actually started watching the show without realizing Scott is actually the main character (lol). It's super easy to ship Sterek because of the actors' chemistry with each other and how the characters always end up in situations alone together. There are werewolves, yes. There are also hunters, murderous and lonely lizard people, pretty-girl geniuses and an evil John McCain-looking villain.

EDIT: AND KATNISS IS IN IT

I've been watching the series since it came out but I don't know...it just felt like it randomly evolved from Wolves vs Hunter to something about Reptiles. I understand how they played into the Reptile but still weird to me. :x

I'm still trying to figure out what the hell the guidance counselor and vet are.
(inb4 witches, inb4 amphibians, inb4 vamps, inb4 buffy)

Esper 08-23-2012 08:28 PM

I'm seriously annoyed at that part. The counselor and vet are shown together in like one scene and than forgotten for the next few episodes. .__.

mamoru 08-23-2012 11:49 PM

? The finale had them both speaking to each other about vet Deaton coming out of retirement or something. D= Although it was in the last 5 minutes

james 08-24-2012 07:24 PM

I just want Season 3 to give a thorough explanation of what they are. It was so weird having the vet be all knowledgeable about the supernatural and then the random guidance councilor was a bit much for me without knowing what they are.

hi, I finally finished season 2.

I blame mori

the role is for twin alpha werewolves. the excerpt of the script they provided show that they're undercover in the high school. THIS SHOW LITERALLY HAS EVERYTHING NOW HAHAHAHA

Esper 10-01-2012 08:21 PM

Twin wolves eh?

mamoru 12-09-2012 12:18 PM

Filming for Season Three has started since last Monday IN LOS ANGELES HAHAHAHA

ya'll probably know all of this but:
Spoiler!

james 12-09-2012 06:05 PM

I just want more Danny.

Ascherit 12-09-2012 06:30 PM

omg Stiles with more hair

mmmyes

Esper 12-09-2012 06:45 PM

Haven't really been keeping track of Teen Wolf updates. A lot of interesting twists. Hoping it works out nicely instead of jumping around with quick ending results.

He better start dating someone gorgeous and then **** their brains out cus he's my everything. Or at least let that relationship inspire good smut writers.

s3 is coming next next week ;-__: I'M SO EXCITED OH MY GOD

i don't usually keep a close watch on spoilers for upcoming seasons but gosh i've just been really anxious to see what happens. the tw fandom has exploded ever since the 2nd half of s2 and it's really interesting to me to see how the show progresses now, especially since now the writers have become more self-aware. personally i see teen wolf as something to fill the void after buffy left air. i genuinely believe both of them share a lot of similarities and i hope tw reaches the cult status buffy has. ;_;

on that note, s3 looks to be really grimdark in comparison to the previous seasons. like, teen wolf can be bleak as **** but wow. all the promotion and news the past 6 months have been almost discouraging me to watch in the way that they talk about all the sadness that the characters have to face. ;_; like, just watch the s3 promos. all of them show each character being tortured in some way. derek gets stabbed through the chest and lydia is holding up a dead girl. that kind of stuff

anyway, among the spoilers: stiles is gonna be the slut of s3! yay! the show again is set a couple months in the future and boyd and erica are still missing. lacrosse season is over so now they're going to join track and field (short-shorts obvsly). derek finally gets an apartment. danny is having a relationship with one of the qt alpha twins. presumably, erica dies. and lydia/isaac both have bigger roles. i wonder how they're going to explain jackson's disappearance. i guess in the canon he's technically dead, but still. and last but not least, it looks like davis is going to dive more in about the lore in the show. explaining stuff about werewolves, their lineage, eye-color... that kind of stuff.
