Yes, I realize this is a week late and episode 1.4 actually aired last night, but give me a break! This is a teen urban fantasy and I’m a 33 year old mother of two. Not exactly the target demographic! In fact, I actually have to check myself when I start thinking how hot the actors are – then I rush to IMDB and make sure they’re over 18. Yes, I know that’s a little bit sad, but the guy playing Derek really is hot. I also realize I haven’t done recaps of the first two episodes. Well, get over it. When I finally start doing Sanctuary reviews, I’m not going to go back and review the first 3 seasons of it for you either! For now, you’ll just have to content yourself with episode three and on. You people can be so demanding, I swear.
What I have to admit is that now that I’ve finally watched episode 1.3 (I watched the first two a couple of weeks ago, but UGHed my way through them), Teen Wolf is a surprisingly good (but definitely not great) show. The writing is generally intelligent, most of the acting is bordering on good, and the story is moderately interesting. I’m still reeling over the fact that this is NOT my childhood Teen Wolf, but I might actually be able to get over that if they stay consistent. This week on Teen Wolf, we get to see why teens should DEFINITELY NEVER EVER make out with each other.
