    Not only is it really well thought out, but the good-looking kids in the show can actually act.

    The only disappointment is the werewolf makeup, minimal enough that Posey could still blend in at the mall. [13 Jun 2011, p.48]

    It is billed as scarier and sexier than the lighthearted film series. It is that, but still plays it safer than, say, "Vampire Diaries" or the "Twilight" films.

    The series generally gets the mood right but proves miserly in the details, from fleeting glimpses of the werewolf to Scott's eventual moon dance, which leaves him looking too much like Eddie Munster.

    This is a pretty by-the-numbers blend of teen angst and horror.

    You might watch Teen Wolf and find a diverting if familiar, brooding teen drama, and that's fine. I found myself watching it and thinking: I want my MTV.

    The fourth season takes on even darker turn on Teen Wolf, and it suits it just perfectly. The acting is superb, the storylines continues to be as phenomal, or even better than phenomenal, as it always has been.

    If you aren't watching MTV's Teen Wolf, you're definitively missing something.

    Excellent show. The acting is good and the plot is interesting. A good show to watch in the summer. This is one of the few shows I have been watching right now and I am surprised that it is a good quality suspenseful show. Expand

    I like this show because, like very few shows, it can make me emotional. Its a great drama and at the same time it pokes humor that makes me almost laugh off what ever i'm feeling, and to go along with that, its well made, the characters are played by great actors who from what i can tell really enjoy what their doing. Teen wolf is one of 3 shows that i absolutely can not miss. Expand

    OMG!!!! don't get me started on Teen Wolf. It is the best show in the history of the world. A boy changed into a wolf and having to deal with the changes. He gets a girlfriend and then realizes her father is a hunter. I love Teen Wolf. When ever it's on i make a sign and hold it up. Teen Wolf is just amazing point covered. Expand

    Great show + good acting + one hell of a cast = TEEN WOLF. One of the best shows this year, and I would really love if the first season would end up with 20 episodes. Expand
