TV: The First Eight Minutes of ‘Teen Wolf’ Enters ‘Ring Two’ Territory

Man, Scott (Tyler Posey) is such a pussy, and he sucks at lacrosse, at least that’s what the following footage implies in the first eight minutes clip from MTV’s forthcoming premiere episode of “Teen Wolf” (airing June 5). The quality of the show looked pretty good, at least until the crazed deer from The Ring Two show up. As a perfect metaphor for the rest of the footage, Scott tumbles down a hill. There’s a CGI wolf, and it’s hungry, so hungry that it just leaves a few bite marks in Scott’s gut — again, setting up a complete dismissal of the “coming-of-age” aspect in the original film. I don’t mean to be such a whiney uber-hater, but this show looks like crap. Disagree with me? Throw your insults below, I can take it (or can I?)

Scott (Tyler Posey) was just a regular guy until one bite changed his life forever.

Now he struggles to understand who he is and what he might become. Is he more wolf than human – or is it the other way around? Whichever it is, it’s not going to be easy. Scott will try to control his urges, but mostly he’s scared that it’s his urges that could end up controlling him.

“Teen Wolf” is the story of Scott as he tries to walk the line between what he wants and what he can’t help from wanting. Will the bite end up being a gift? Or will it be a curse? And what will it all mean for his relationship with Allison (Crystal Reed) – the girl he can’t get enough of? Only time will tell if he should embrace his newfound powers or if he should fear them.
