MTV's Teen Wolf Starts with a Whimper After MTV Movie Awards
MTV is hoping that putting it after the MTV Movie Awards gives it the exposure it needs to become their next hit.
If you already saw the clip that MTV posted of the first eight minutes of Teen Wolf, then you already knew the show wasn't pulling any big surprises, twists or turns in the show's first episode. For a network that prides itself on pushing the envelope and bringing edgy, shock-value driven entertainment, their take on werewolves was surprisingly low key.
I don't generaly see alot of movies and shows that are overly graphic or scary. The problem: That is what the viewers expect out of cable and especialy out of MTV. MTV knows reality television and drama, I'm not so sure they know how to make science fiction or paranormal scripted shows work. Rest of the season is going to half to be picked up a notch.
They could have and should have done so much more with the scene where Posey's character finds the dead body and then gets attacked by the wolf. They had a missed opportuity to make an impression on the viewers unlike what Syfy did with season one of Being Human. The encounter the werewolf-the part that was most looked forward to by werewolf fans- lasted just less than a minute.
In MTV's defense, the pilot episode did what a pilot is supposed to do: they laid a good foundation for which they can build the plot and characters. The writers made it clear what the on going conflict is going to be and who the central characters are. Also, Tyler Posey is perfectly casted as Scott McCall, a Peter Parker esque type character. He and Dylan O'Brien (Stiles) as best friends are showing good chemistry that hopefully the writers will capitalize on. Shows like Hawaii Five-0 and House have shown people like a good bromance.
No, this is not the Michael J. Fox movie version that is adored by so many. However, if MTV wants keep their core audiance comming back for more, then the show needs to capitalize better on the scenes that should be scary, shocking and leave people picking their jaws up off the floor. If their viewers want something tamer, they can just watch Twilight.
Teen Wolf will move to its regular time on Monday at 10/9 central beginning June sixth.
