I have finally started to watch Teen Wolf. Four episodes in, I`m moderately entertained.

The main character is kinda whiny, though. And I don`t know why we always have to go through the "boohoo, I`m superpowered so I can`t get my ego validated being a big hero on the sports team, oh my life is so tragic" stuff. I realize it`s a trope from the Michael J. Fox movie but we did it with Clark on Smallville and even for an ep with Stefan on TVD. I will say the coach cracks me up, though.

For obvious reasons I like Derek the best right now. :) Stiles is fun but I need to see more of him to really get a handle on the character.

The romance? Eh. I like seeing Martouf as a hunter. But what I`m most interested in right now is: who is the alpha? I presume it is a character already established? Well, 8 more to go.

It's been a while since I've seen season 1, but Derek is, by far (in my opinion, the best character on Teen Wolf. A couple reoccurring characters in season two are great but for now, it's mostly Derek. And for some reason, I like Lydia (but that's more of over the past two seasons rather than any single thing she's done). And yes, I agree that Scott is whiny...and Stiles can be a bit irritating at times. The Alpha storyline is long so be prepared! Enjoy watching!

I`m nearly done with the Season now and Derek is still my fave. The two eps were he was barely in it? Didn`t like them too much.

However, something that really drags scenes/episodes down is whenever some schmoopy music starts playing and the focus goes to the boring teenage romance between Scott/Allison. Yawn.

There is a lot more Scott/Allison to come, so be prepared. Same with the sappy/schmoopy music.

Season 2 gets better!

The thing about Teen Wolf I might love most is that Scott is an idiot, and the show knows that and makes fun of it and has character ackknowdledge that.
That's why I always found his behaviour tolerable.

He really annoys me with the Allison, Allison, Allison. It`s like literally the only thing his pea brain is capable of focusing on. I mean, HE is the one going through the transformation into werewolf but Stiles is actually more interested in researching that and coming up with solutions.

There was this one scene where Derek saved Scott`s hiney (again) and I thought maybe Scott would acknowledge that he threw Derek under the bus and called a manhunt on him but nope, the first (and only) words out of his mouth were once again how werewolfdom impacts his relationship with Allison. OMG, shut up, shut up, shut up.

Also their romance scenes seem like they were videobombed in the episodes. You got interesting stuff happen, then bam, Scott looks at Allison, schmoop music starts playing and everything just stops.

Stiles lampshaded it a few times but it`s really annoying.

Yeah, but his obsession leads to one of the best jokes of the whole season. It's been two years and when I think of it I am still laughing. And the fact that he is not exactly the brightest guy is also being commented on. Repeatedly.

I know that Scott is annoying at first, but he does grow on you, because unlike characters like Clark on Smallville, the show never tries to tell you he is anything else but a total idiot. Lovable, but dumb as a rock.

His username and password? *g* What really sold it was the look on the Alpha`s face. Completely gobsmacked.

yeah. *snicker*

In my opinion, the worst character is Allison. Development and writing-wise. I never grew to like her. Derek is definitely a favorite along with Lydia. I hated Jackson at first because he seems like the a-typical dickhead jock but he definitely grows on you in season 2. Stiles...eh, didn't care for him even though Sterek was the whole reason I dove into Teen Wolf. Now he just reminds me of a lot of my friends in High School.

Jackson is kinda interesting to me right now with wanting to be a werewolf. Derek is interesting with his family mystery and quest for vengeance. I like Stiles trying to figure this whole werewolf thing out and come up with solutions. The hunter family is interesting as well, right now to the psychotic mother and sadistic, creepy aunt. I also dig the Alpha. Lydia is cool, too, with her hiding her superior intellect.

However, Scott, the one going through the actual change to being a werewolf? He simply can`t shut up on how everything impacts his teenage love affair with Allison and I wanna bang my head against the wall.
