The official trailer for MTV's Teen Wolf series reveals that it's just as awful as you expected it to be

Mar. 31, 2011by: George Merchan

There have been lots and lots of rip-offs of TWILIGHT both in film and television, but is MTV's new "Teen Wolf" series the most blatant of them all?

Maybe I've just been good at shutting my eyes, plugging my ears, and going lalalalala this whole time... but this one just seems so f*cking shameless. They're even hammering away at the whole "repression" theme (i.e. SEX METAPHOR), which is still one of the most bizarre and off-putting messages to be subversively sending to teenagers.

More than anything, though, the show just looks like balls. But what was I really expecting? This?

Synopsis: "Teen Wolf" is the story of Scott (Tyler Posey) 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 - 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.

Extra Tidbit: Still have great fondness for the original TEEN WOLF.

Of course it's awful, it's Mtv. Of course, the audience they cater to doesn't exactly go for the gold, what with fantastic programming like Jersey Shore.

Jersey Shore? What about Teen Mom, My Super Sweet 16, Disaster Date, etc! Jersey Shore.. sigh.. I preferred Pauly Shore! I remember way back, when MTV used to introduce me to bands such as Nirvana, Primus, White Zombie, Green Day and yes, The Fun Lovin' Criminals!!

And people wonder why this generation of teens are a bunch of fuck tards? Lol yeah, I blame MTV a little, but reality TV as a whole.

Great, another show for my girlfriend to try to make me sit through. looks like Andy Samberg's little brother, and no Styles = fail.

looks god awful but idiot teens who love mtv will make this show a winner unfortunately. i love that they pretty much showed the first two or three episodes in that lengthy trailer. the sex thing is getting annoying from mtv.

So now turning into a werewolf means...

...just getting sharp fingernails, 4 sharp teeth, and contact lenses? wtf

Also, this show is clearly trying to cash in on the Twilight success.

This looks like something that was filmed by college students for something to be put on Youtube.

I miss 90's MTV :(

Did this trailer really need to be 3 minutes long? I feel like I just watched the entire pilot. No more surprises left for anyone who actually does watch the show after seeing this. They even showed us the cliffhanger which is obviously going to be the end of the episode.

At least the girl was kinda cute.

They don't even follow the original premise that Scott and his family are werewolves, that they were hoping it would 'skip his generation'. this is just a grotesque mash-up of twilight and cursed. not a good combo. friggin' depressing.

Dear Lord

Assuming the show makes it to 3 seasons and the lead is no longer a teenager, do they rename the show?

Man, it's shit like this that makes me cynical.

the worst part is that it'll be a huge hit. i miss the days when trash like this was limited to young adult novels that nobody read.
